This is the first Sherrilyn Kenyon book I've read and, if this book is anything to go by, I am at a loss to understand her popularity. The writing is just so bad.
First, the characters are one-dimensional and do not change. Second, the book is waaaaaaaaay too long for the content it contains. Case in point: the endlessly repetitive torture scenes. Do we really need to experience these in minute detail over and over? We get it, okay? Poor Acheron is all alone in the world. Nobody likes him. Can we move forward? Please? That leads me to my third observation: nothing happens. I mean, once you remove the torture scenes, nobody is really doing anything. None of the characters are changing/growing/learning...it's just more beatings. Acheron keeps bemoaning his fate. The king keeps punishing Acheron for existing. The princess remains a constant fool. This just goes on and on and on and on...what is the point? It is tedious.
I made it halfway through the book but I can't take any more. I just don't care anymore what happens to any of these characters.
You just had to keep reading to know what would happen next to this poor tortured soul. I read on of Ms Kenyon's books I bought at a small book shop and I was hooked. Her books sweep you away, they make you care about the characters and what happens to them. I love her books and this one is one of her best to this point.

Acheron is definitely one of my favourite books in the series. When I first read Dance With the Devil, I fell in love with him and I was excited when I picked up the series again... Read morePublished on Dec 24 2013 by Artemis
I do love to read about the Gods of yesteryear. It is remarkable and my imagination goes back in time to visualize the world these people lived in. Read morePublished on Jan. 7 2013 by Jeanette A. Smith
I love reading and have extremely eclectic tastes. I usually share books with friends that I think might like them, or at worst trade them in to a used book store. Read morePublished on Sept. 30 2011 by dehall
