A New York Times bestseller!
#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon brings us back to the astonishing world of the Dark-Hunters in Stygian, with a hero misunderstood by many…but most of all by himself.
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 I was prematurely ripped from my mother and planted into the womb of an innocent woman who thought me her son.
Trained as a slayer and predator, I 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 this world is an illusion 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.

And common man! I loved who he winded up with, but trapped in stone for years? Didn't that JUST happen to Beth? Not only is the last chunk of Styxx coppied and paste into this book, it was such a similar story that it was hard to read. And no elaboration as to how Urian was handling his new found family. How he was adjusting to his best friend becoming his father. So much that could have been explored and just wasn't!
Even his and Strykers reunion was so rushed that I almost glanced over it! All within 2 pages did Urian go from hating his father to a sniveling child at his father's feet. It was so anticlimactic!
She has been doing this with all her league books, and it has been driving me crazy. I was thankful that that level of coppied and paste didn't wind up with the DH, but she did it with a book I was waiting on for hears. I would tell myself, "maybe this book will move the story further." And then it's the same book, new protagonists. Same story, just literally coppied a d paste in a new book. 14 dollars for a nook? The story itself for Urian was so small I could not see paying more that 8 for it. Not for a combination of 300 pages for Urian, and 3 other DH books just copied and pasted word for word. It would be better just to get it from the library and not waste your money. Nothing released in the book was worth the money in my opinion.
I love you Author Goddess! But please, love you characters the way you used to. Your heart was evident in those stories. I feel like your trying to just get them out. Maybe not focus on so many different series! I have to read 3 different series to keep up with one story arc that hasn't been moved forward in a few books. I just pray that the next one is better or that this doesn't happen to another of my once favorite characters.
Let me do you a solid and save you $14.99 plus tax. Urian whines a lot. No one loves him (because Kenyon has made her fortune wiith broken heroes that heal and find love; she usually does it very welll. Not here, though), hes isolated from his family and he'll never please his father. Everyone in his life, except for his mother (what! Not in this wannna be Greek tragedy!),manipulates him and oh my golly the dewy eyed innocent never catches on. He never grows or changes through the book. He fights a lot. Apolloymi is a whiney annoyance in this book instead of the badass she acrually is.
Next time, I'll get a copy from the library and save myself some money. I don't mind paying for books. I do mind paying for lazy writing and slipshod editing. I felt like i was rreading a beta draft.
