He was made human in order to escape death, but in death he was reborn a god. . .
Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. 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 never that simple. For centuries, he has fought for our survival and hidden a past he’ll do anything to keep concealed. Until a lone woman who refuses to be intimidated by him threatens his very existence.
Now his survival, and ours, hinges on hers and old enemies reawaken and unite to kill them both.
War has never been more deadly... or more fun.
Review done by a good friend Angela- she will be contributing regular on here as well. I recommended this book to her and now I have her hooked on Sherrilyn Kenyon .
Angela's Review of Acheron
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with romance novels. I like them for the simple lovey dovey good feeling they can give you, and for the smut. On the other hand sometimes they seem a bit contrived and well, at times just plain stupid. That being said, I gotta say that this book was really really good!
I mean it's romance, but it actually had a really good plot and it's obvious the author did alot of in depth research to make sure the fantasy part of it actually seemed beleivable.
it's a twisted web of modern day pop culture and ancient mythology and she blended it so well that the charecters are beleivable and endearing. I give it 5 stars! Even if your not into the whole romance thing, you really should give this one a read.
