"Eleven thousand years ago, a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. But the strongest steel is forged from the fires of hell..."

Acheron's human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Then, brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind. Only it was never that simple. For centuries, Acheron 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.

Book description

Eleven thousand years ago, a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. But the strongest steel is forged from the fires of hell…

Acheron’s human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Then, brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind. Only it was never that simple. For centuries, Acheron 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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.9 out of 5★ by 12reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by AMAZING!!!!!!! I had loved Acheron based upon other books in the series but this one had me totally in love with him. I would fight anyone to their death to protect him - not that he needs it - after everything we learn about his past in this book. He is such a tortured soul that you just want to pull him close and never let anyone hurt him ever again. The heartbreak in this book makes you understand him SO much. The end of the book is well worth crying through the first part. The end also gives you a glimpse at how much his mother truly loves him. Unbelievable book! A must read for any Dark Hunter fan. 11/06/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by So good, any true fan of the series must read it! As Mrs. Kenyon writes in the front of the book, the first half of the story focuses on Ash's upbringing. And the horrors he went through. If you have ever suffered from abuse, it might affect you harder, as some scenes are very graphic. But it is such an incredible story of the will to live, survive and the simple want to be loved, you will cry for Ash. I did many times. You just wish if it had been real that you could have been there and held him, told him and assured him that he was loved. It also tells how Simi comes into his life, and how his relationship with Artemis came into being. It explains everything that a true DarkHunter fan has ever wondered about when it comes to that mysterious figure known as Ash. In my own humble opinion, this is Sherrilyn Kenyon's best work. The price was more than worth it. But I had ordered it to have it sent site to store, and that just took a little too long for me as I wanted it so bad. But the price is so worth it. It is a great story for any true fan of the DarkHunter world, and a must read. 04/18/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best of the series This one is the best of the dark hunter series 06/28/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by WOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!!! If you've followed the series, you are always dying to know about Acheron's past and this book was nothing short of AMAZING! Its broken down to 2 parts. The first part is his past which had me pulling back tears. Poor Acheron, you really find out why he's been so quiet when he's asked questions in other books. The second part brings you to the present and his current struggles. The entire book is so great!!! It's the longest of the Dark-Hunter series, but worth every page. You'll cry, laugh, and the romance scenes are steamy. YOU HAVE TO READ IT!!! 07/28/2009
Rated 4 out of 5★ by it's alright You wanna read a book ful of twists and turns this isyou book. The onl disapoingting for me was hat the whle series makes you anticipat this characther's story. Yet when I got to it I didn't enjoyit cuz the charcther seems concided that EVERYBOY is out to hurt, thought the only reason he's never anybod close is because the characther himself puts everyon at a distance. I expecte more from the book, but if this i the first tme reading the series you will ejoy Acheron struggles and finally as he finds love in th most unexpected of places. 08/21/2009

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Favorite book of the series!! I love the Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. To me, the best thing about the books is the leader of the Dark-Hunters, Acheron. So, there is no wonder I love this book, because I secretly have a crush on a fictional book character! :) 06/03/2011
