Even though he was the youngest when he died, Acheron was the first Dark-Hunter ever appointed. He is also the writer of the Dark-Hunter Creed and of the Code we abide by.
Because of his Dark-Hunter age and the fact that he fought the Daimons alone for thousands of years, he is more phantom than real. He interacts with the other Dark-Hunters on a whim, and his sage advice is often sought.
Eccentric and idiosyncratic to the extreme, he is a legend among legends. The Dark-Hunters never know what to expect when Acheron enters a scene. He runs the full gamut from friendly to intimidating to downright scary.
It is said of him that there has never been a mortal born who could equal his physical perfection. He possesses a raw, rare kind of charisma.
To look at him is to want him. To see him is to ache to touch him.

1/10 - This is the first time I've read a book that's part of a series and is the final (so far) book in the series. Luckily it was a book that went into the back story of the whole series, giving me the connections between the many different characters that pop up in this one and previous books in ...

However, his human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Then, brought back against his will, Acheron became the sole defender of mankind.Only it was ...
2.5 Stars, rounded up.By the time we finally got to chapter one, it had already been over 400 pages. And second, the ending was horrible and pathetic.
Hmm, a vaguely unsatisfying book.Over half the book was set 11,000 years ago - ok a little bit was 9,000 years ago but don't quibble. The trouble is we knew a good 80% of what had happened already and since none of it was written from Ash's POV I'm not sure we really got much more. And it was unrele...
