About the book
Publication Date:  Aug 6, 2013

Just when you thought doomsday was over…

Centuries ago Acheron protected 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 for Acheron’s.

Bethany was born to set right the wrong that left her family imprisoned for eternity. Now that she’s out, nothing will stop her from fulfilling the bargain that freed them. She must take the life of the last remaining Atlantean and she will not fail. 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?


Q. Will Styxx have his own book

In short, yes. I know, I know. I’ve said a million times that I was too mad at Styxx to write his story. Ever. I know…
Then one day as I sat quietly thinking, Styxx walked in and sat down next to me.

“I have something to tell you.”

I wrinkled my nose at him. “I don’t want to hear it. You’re an @$$. Go away.”

He didn’t listen. Instead, he made me realize that I, like everyone else, including Acheron, had misjudged him. I saw the events of the past not through Acheron’s eyes. I saw them through Styxx’s and what an awakening it was.

As I’ve always said, there are three sides to every story. Yours. Theirs. And the truth that isn’t clouded by human emotions that filter everything. I’d had two sides of the story all along. Acheron’s and the unemotional truth. What I never had before was Styxx’s point of view. I let my own emotions cloud him to me, and like others, I saw him only as Acheron did. But things aren’t always what they seem and people only remember the part of the past they experience and/or have been told. And they seldom know everything. Most of all, we can’t look into the heart of someone else. At least not until now. Styxx is so much more than I ever knew him to be.

As with Zarek and Valerius, I think all of you will agree with me when you read the book. And in many ways, it’s another story of Acheron. You will see events that weren’t in his book and I know Styxx will win you over. In all honesty, he was done wrong and it will break your heart. Misjudged, condemned, betrayed and abandoned… There’s a whole side of him that no one knows. Even now, it brings tears to my eyes.

NOTE: Just so everyone knows, Acheron was heartbreaking-counselling was needed, stocks in tissues soared. Styxx will bring tears to our eyes….*sniff*….not sure if I can handle another brother so brutally abused.

    • *hands Lori another box of tissues and an emergency number for counselling*…this one could be difficult…although, I am not sure anything can top Acheron…*sniff*

      • Yes Sandy i too think it will be hard to top Acheron but i sure am looking forward to seeing if S.K. does it i for one am looking forward to another cry since thats all i do with the Black Dagger Brotherhood ,its cry cry cry all the time had someone knock at my door the other day and yes it was a CRYING day in the book and the guy is all freaked out ,like are you ok , and i say nicely while sniffing loads of s!!!!!!!!! well it’s that Damn Sandys fault she told me to read J.R.WARD Black Dagger Brotherhood . Yes sometimes my life is so hard . ROFLMFAO

        • *looks around*…..Did LORI just BLAME me for her emotional breakdown reading the BDB????

          *snort*….I think I cried in EVERY storyline….and especially with FATHER MINE in the Insider’s Guide.

But yes i have cried with them all , you have to love a read that makes you laugh , then cry So thank you for my emotional breakdown it has be worth it. lol

  3. I’m still climbing the walls over this one girls. I can’t freaking wait to get my hands on this book. I just hope Ms. Kenyon keeps giving us tidbits as she goes like she’s been doing with all her latest books. You can be sure I will be keeping tabs on this one and sending any info into Barb and Sandy to post. All I have to say is I have a funny feeling we are all going to be changing our tune in regards to Styxx once we’ve read his book. Ms. Kenyon has a way of redeeming certain characters and I feel Styxx is going to be one of the. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I can’t wait *bouncing up and down with excitement*

  4. This series has had a reaction on everyone I have recommended to and I believe that for it was a journey and Acheron was a deep dark time for me and brought out so much that I can’t imagine how sherrrilyn got thru with the book. It takes courage to do that. Thank you Sherrrilyn for the journey. I can’t wait for the book I miss my Ash and Zarek.
