A Dark-Hunter series audiobook from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. His human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind.

Only it was never that simple. For centuries, he has fought for our survival and hidden a past he never wants revealed. 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.

  • Focusing on the core of each of the main characters, Graham directs the flow of the plot around their raw emotions. He gives the impression of barely being able to hold in their power while also allowing glimpses of their vulnerabilities. AudioFile, Winner of an Earphones Award

    " LOVED this book! the first part was so sad to read but also a bit long which 'numbed' me a bit. Part two was great! absolutely love Acheron... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerrin | 1/31/2014

    " I really liked Acheron from his first apperence... and the idea of his book kept me going thru some of the books that were slow moving for me.The first half seemed alittle over done... where the second was alittle under done. Although i did like this book, i didn't love it the i hoped i would. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeannie | 1/25/2014

    " great book, if you are reading the series, it gives so many answers. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isis | 1/22/2014

    " En este libro podemos darnos cuenta de muchas de las actitudes, y forma de ser de Acheron, todos los misterios son develados, sin dejarnos un nudo en el estomago, la primera parte es muy densa, muy fuerte, no nos deja en absoluto indiferentes, para luego darnos un respiro en la segunda parte. Para quienes somos seguidores y amamos esta serie, creo que es el mejor libro de la saga,hasta el momento, (espero que los siguientes libros sean igual de buenos, aunque esta autora no me falla). En definitiva, muy bueno!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Desiree | 1/12/2014

    " I listened to this as an audio book. The first part is really sad and depressing and tough to get through, but necessary to understand the rest of the book. While I did like this book, I have a hard time following Sherrilyn Kenyon's books and probably won't read to many others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherryl | 1/3/2014

    " I absolutely love this book. Acheron's story is heartbreaking. While I read through the first half of the book with tear-filled eyes, I was giggling with the second half. I couldn't help shouting with glee when Tory kicked Artemis' butt. Sherrilyn Kenyon, you're the best! "

    " Cliche and some things don't quite fit, however I always love a good romance book. I'm a sucker for them so my standards of literacy aren't not very high in these regards. This book, however is a great 'quick' read in my opinion and I thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaya | 5/5/2011

    " Those first 400 or so pages were brutal. I couldn't wait to get through them. It went on for far too long. I think we got the idea after about 100 or so pages.
    So glad he found someone. "
