Review: Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon

18386252

 

BLURB:

Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge.

As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother’s side. They’ve spent more centuries going at each other’s throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he’s willing to trade his life and future for Acheron’s.

The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now. She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop her.

But things are never what they seem, and Acheron is no longer the last of his line. Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to trust each other or more will suffer.

Yet it’s hard to risk your own life for someone who once tried to take yours, even when it’s your own twin, and when loyalties are skewed and no one can be trusted, not even yourself, how do you find a way back from the darkness that wants to consume the entire world? One that wants to start by devouring your very soul?

 

OUR REVIEW:

The highly anticipated Styxx is finally here. I wanted to read this latest Dark Hunter installment because I absolutely love the series but I didn’t want to read it because I didn’t want my opinion of Ash changed in any way. I think it is  safe to say I started reading with a slightly jaded view.

I am going to sound like Ash here for a moment when I say I know there are always two sides to every story and you have to hear both sides before you make up your mind but I have loved Ash for so long it was difficult to give Styxx the benefit of the doubt before reading his story.

Ms. Kenyon is a wonderful story teller and really gets the reader wrapped up in her characters lives and we really feel for them. Having now read Styxx’s side of the story, I am not quite as anti-Styxx as I was but I will always put Ash first. This book gives a lot of back story and answers many questions. I like how Ms. Kenyon weaves multiple storylines in her books and Styxx definitely gave us that to keep our interests. And she leaves us with just enough of a teaser to make us wait impatiently for the next Dark Hunter installment.

In the end, I no longer hate Styxx but I don’t necessarily have to like him even though he is a likable person. I did enjoy this book and am glad that I read it. You don’t have to be a Dark Hunter fan to to read this either.  I do suggest you at least read Acheron either before or after this one to get the complete picture.
