Sherrilyn Kenyon's newest book Styxx is coming out in just days, so I am re-reading Acheron by this awesome author. It's been awhile since I've read it and already I'm finding things that I missed my first time through, lol.
  I'm still not sure if I want to "like" Styxx, not after the horrendous childhood that Acheron endured. :( But as the Author Goddess has said every story has two sides, and no one has heard Styxx's side yet. So I'll reserve opinion on that score ;)
   I've always been a sucker for a hard luck story and Acheron's is definitely one of those "hard luck" story.  For those of you that are loyal Kenyon Minions, then you know what I'm talking about, but for those of you that don't....

   Acheron while just a babe in utero was threatened by his own father Archon, the head of the Atlantean Gods, due to a prophecy that Archon's three daughters (we know them as the three fates) decreed.
   Acheron would bring about the end to the Atlantean Pantheon.
His Goddess mother Apollymi wouldn't hear of it, and so cut him from her womb and had her niece Basi put him inside a pregnant Queen's body, and tie his lifeforce to that of the other babes.
   And that ladies and gents is just the tip of the iceberg to the tragic story of dear Acheron, and I'm not even to the best parts yet!
If you want my opinion, if you haven't read any of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series....You should. It's a really great series that will take you on a whirl wind adventure and have you questioning if there really is vampires out there, and if so...Did Apollo create them?
