Tor.com’s eBook of the Month Club: Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Acheron - Sherrilyn Kenyon

This is available from August 14th to 11:59 PM ET August 17th, US and Canada only.

 

I used to be a huge fan of this series, but I think this is the book that made me quit reading it. Kenyon is big on tortured heroes (often literally tortured), and she went overboard in this book. Plus, after 14 books (or 13? 11? not sure) of anticipating who she might pair Acheron off with, I recall being extremely disappointed by his heroine, who was one of the more uninteresting ones in the series (or maybe I was just really over the series by then).

 

It's a huge book, though, and if you're interested in the series at all, I think you could easily skip to it after reading one or more of the earlier entries in the series. Just be aware that there is a LOT of on-page suffering.

Dragonmark - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Not exactly a hard read, particularly since it overlaps (and is cut/pasted for a good portion of) the last two books of the series. Author didn't even bother to do a POV change for some of it. :/

 

Most annoying - the previous book ended when the H of this book found his supposedly dead mate. We get the rest of the story - sort of - as there was the first mention that Max (previous H) was gravely wounded right after that, and it was never cleared up how he survived.

 

Add to these issue the fact that for the better part of the book, the h is presumed dead... Well, she was dead in a sense but she was half some sort of dream fairy and that didn't exactly kill *her*; just her human shell.

Pirates and Demons With Feelings
Death Doesn't Bargain - Sherrilyn Kenyon,Holter Graham

Audiobook- excellent narration
4.5 Stars
Death, devils, pirates, princes, demons, love and friendship. All that and there was still some room for smexy time ! You know SK knows how to smex her characters right ! Just thinking about it all hot and bothered. Somebody grab me a fan it's hot in here. If you love her other series you'll love this one.
Man that was a fun ride. I can't tell you anything without ruining the story. it does pick up just after book 1 so go read that one first. it would also help if you read her Dark Hunter Series at least too. She pulls characters in from her other books and doesn't reintroduce them nor tell their back story. You'd be missing out on some seriously good characters if you don't. Acheron, Simi, Thorn, and a few other favorites make an appearance and set up for the next book. The ending is a humdinger of a cliffhanger. You have been warned.

Dragonmark: A Dark-Hunter Novel (Dark-Hunter Novels) - Sherrilyn Kenyon

This installment of the Dark-Hunter series was hard to get into. Things moved way too quickly with the couple, and Edilyn supposedly hated dragons but the moment she is asked to mate with one she didn't hesitate. I didn’t like Edilyn in the beginning; she came across as naive and under-developed because of how rushed their relationship seemed to evolve. Compared to Illarion, she was flat and not a strong match for him. The plot seemed rushed and jumped ahead a lot for such a small book. The plot did improve a lot after they were forced into another realm by Morgan le Fey and things took a turn for the worse. Once Illarion was in modern times and reunited with his brothers and the rest of the DH crew joined up, it became really good. Apollo is up to no good again and he teams up with Kessler, the Gallu demon, and they want something Illarion has guarded for centuries.  Once in modern times, Jossette and Cadegan's story, Son of No One, and Maxis and Sera's story, Dragonbane, is relived but through Illarion's point of view. That was cool revisiting those two stories. Apollo uses Edilyn to try and manipulate Illarion and that whole portion of the book and the conclusion was good, though I would have loved to have some more time with the characters being they were separated by hundreds of years.  Once they were reunited, I wanted more. Overall, not my favorite in the DH series but not bad.
