New Release Review! Stygian (Dark Hunters #27 / Hunter Legends #43) Sherrilyn Kenyon!

 

 

-MAJOR SPOILER WARNING-
While the books don’t have to be read in order, if you haven’t read Dragonsworn, this synopsis will contain massive spoilers for DS. We just wanted to warn you!
-MAJOR SPOILER WARNING-


Born before man recorded time, I lived for thousands of years, believing myself to be something I’m not.

 

Someone I’m not.

 

Lied to and betrayed by gods, Daimons, and Dark-Hunters, I’ve struggled to find my way in a world where I’ve been cursed since the moment a vengeful goddess prematurely ripped me from my mother and planted me into the womb of an innocent woman who thought me her son.

 

Trained as a slayer and predator, I’ve learned to fit in and stay low. To become a tool for evil. Until I was sent to kill the one woman I couldn’t. My hesitation cost her, her life.

 

Or so I thought. In an act of betrayal that makes all the others pale in comparison, I’ve learned that things are not what they seem in this world and that my Phoebe still lives.

 

Now I will have to travel into the very pits of Hades to try and save her, even as everyone around me attempts to steal what little soul I have left. There’s only one person at my back and I’m not sure I can trust her either, for she was born of an enemy race. Yet sometimes the road to redemption is one that singes us to our very core. And if I fail to find the answers I need to save Phoebe, more than just my wife will die.

 

We will lose the world. Both human and Daimon.

 

~Urian of the House of Aricles

 

 

Be prepared for a turbulent, addictive and thrilling experience as Sherrilyn Kenyon brings Urian’s story to life in a long but excellent read that provokes a roller coaster of emotions as it keeps readers mesmerized throughout its the numerous years and settings. All of the characters in this story are solid, convincing characters that readers can’t help but be fascinated by, of course, if you read the Dark Hunter series, then you already know and love all of them and this book gives readers more detail in to their lives as well and also introduces some new characters. Urian has been a favorite since he was first introduced and this book just makes him all the more captivating as it gives readers an in depth look at his very long lifespan. The romance part of his life is troubled which is just one of many things that tugs at readers’ hearts but in a surprising twist, his happily ever after mate is not one that readers could anticipate and brings about a few other bombshells as well.

 

There is lots of exciting events, some of which readers would have read from other points of view in others’ stories, and getting them from Urian’s point of view puts a whole new spin on them when taken all together. These stories should be read in order because while this book gets into these events, it does not give whole picture and without that readers may not be able achieve maximum enjoyment of this book as it hops through a very long, troubled and thrilling history of Urian’s life story. Readers won’t want to put this book down, but will probably find that they have to because not only is it long but they will want to meticulously and covetously read every last word to ensure that they don’t miss a single important detail in any of Urian’s life experiences and interactions with the other characters of this spectacular world.

Great Story and Characters
Stygian - Sherrilyn Kenyon

This was a preview except about Urian of the House of Aricles, not the full book. The except I read was all in the past and were the early years of Urian. While Sherrilyn Kenyon was once my absolute favorite author, I must admit that I haven’t read any of her books in several years due one being seriously disappointing. That’s not to say I haven’t bought them, I have, they are just far down on my TBR list. When I saw this excerpt pop up, I decided it was time to get back to the world she has built that I so loved. Once I started reading the excerpt, I couldn’t put it down. I breezed through it and it made me want to go back and catch back up. I can’t wait to read the rest of the book.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Review of "Acheron" (Dark Hunter, #14) - Sherrilyn Kenyon
Acheron (Dark-Hunter, #12) - Sherrilyn Kenyon

This reader's personal opinion, ©2018, all rights reserved, not to be quoted, clipped or used in any way by goodreads, Google Play, amazon.com or other commercial booksellers* 


The first and second half of this book were so completely different.  I almost feel like I should be reviewing two separate books.  (I've seen it numbered in the main Dark Hunter series as 12, 14, 15 or 16 depending on which book site you use -- author's website says 14.)

 

Full disclaimer:  I've only read a couple of out of order books in this series.  Seemed pretty typical PNR with alpha males and predictable romances.  Liked well enough, but not blown away (or always in the mood to read).  Barely remember the reads.  

 

The first half of this book was very different from what I remember of the series.  Full of a pantheon of gods including familiar Olympians.  Origin story, drama, family angst -- really remniscient of a lot of what I consider "mythology."  Surprising bit of worldbuilding including Atlantis.  I did get into the characters of God Acheron and his human sister Ryssa.  Although not the most explicit I've read, fair warning -- it overall winds up a grim story with lots of betrayal, torture (including child abuse).  While less explicit, it's very clear he was not only raped as a child, he was trafficked.  

 

I'd have given it ★★★★☆ if hadn't read second half.  Which took place in modern days and really rather did little with Atlantis (okay, neither did first half but kept me hoping and in second half there was an artifact from that different forces wanted for different reasons) and little with the pantheons despite small appearances from Artemis.  The stereotypical PNR saved because I did still like Acheron and initially the heroine/love-interest.

 

I could have done without a lot of male posturing and probably would have enjoyed the humor and what seemed like cameos more if had been more familiar with series to be invested in the guest stars.

 

The ending, well, guess gods and goddesses get it easy.

 

The glimpses of the worldbuilding in this series, the tales of how Dark Hunters came to be, and the bits of more storylines hinted at by cameos have made me want to read more in series.  It's more interesting seeming than what I initially dismissed as another not very original, fated mate PNR series.  I will read on when in the mood.

Ratings scale used in absence of a booklikes suggested rating scale:

★★★★★ = All Time Favorite 
★★★★½ = Extraordinary Book. Really Loved It.
★★★★☆ = Loved It.
★★★½☆ = Really Liked.
★★★☆☆ = Liked.
★★½☆☆ = Liked parts; parts only okay. Would read more by author.
★★☆☆☆ = Average.   Okay. 
★½☆☆☆ = Disliked or meh? but kept reading in hopes would improve.
★☆☆☆☆ = Loathed It. Possibly DNF and a torturous read.
½☆☆☆☆ = So vile was a DNF or should have been. Cannot imagine anyone liking.  (Might also be just an "uploaded" word spew or collection that should not be dignified by calling itself a "published book." If author is going batshit crazy in the blogosphere over reviews -- I now know why they are getting bad reviews.  Or maybe author should take remedial classes for language written in until basic concepts like using sentences sink in. Is author even old enough to sign a publishing contract or do they need a legal guardian to sign for them?)
