Just when you thought doomsday was over...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?
In case you're wondering YES this book was just as heart wrenching as Ash's was. The only thing that makes it better is that I liked the ending better. I have been a Styxx fan and Apollymi since the early books. I say let Apollymi out. Stuff will grow back.
My first thought was the same as it was when I first started reading Ash's book. How could parents do this to their child? As I drug my eyeballs across the pages finally the torment of his family ends and he is left to deal with eternal torment. I think Styxx's love for Beth is the most awe inspiring thing I've ever read. 11,000+ years of misery and to never love another leaves me speechless.
The light at the end of the misery tunnel finally comes on! Ash sees that he has wronged his brother for thousands of years. CONGRATS Ash! Took you long enough!
As always there were appearances from the old school crew and my fav girl Simi.
Things that I learned from Simi this time around....
1.Official motto of the Chthonians....Does not play well with others. Do mix with general population.Period
2. Stay away from "non quality peoples"
3. BBQ is a perfectly acceptable peace offering when you have accidentally ripped someones throat out.
Birthday Etiquette by Simi
1. No cake? Use Ding Dongs
2. No candles? Use the glow stick you carry in your purse. (who carries a glow stick in their purse?)
3. You so old we'd have to have a cake the size of a battleship.
I give this book 5 chocolate dipped strawberries. Even though it was agony to read I love Sherrilyn that much.
