I appreciate that Kenyon is trying to redeem Styxx and therefore his story must be more graphic than Acheron's but frankly this book is too much. Between all the abuse, rape and who knows what else the book becomes tedious. It's over 800 pages and only the last 200 pages are worth reading in my opinion. Plus, on top of all that we're supposed to believe that he can live through unending abuse, be on a desert island for 11,000 years and still retain his humanity. Are you kidding me?

This book is too long. Kenyon has spent a really long time taking Acheron's side, making his brother seem like a shit. Therefore, she choose to reveal his story in one giant tome, instead of having it revealed piece by piece and I think it loses something by throwing it down all at once. You don't really get a chance to rebuild the relationship between the brothers. It's artificial. And pushes you to accept very suddenly that Kenyon loves this character, wants to redeem him and make him more understandable. Be aware, there are some rather graphic scenes of abuse in this book.

Book 23 of Dark Hunter novels; preceded by Time Untime and followed by The Son of No One; about Styxx and Bethany. This was a very long book (836pgs). The beginning was a bit hard to get through as Styxx was virtually unknown (other than what Ryssa wrote about him and what Acheron thought). But in time my opinion of him changed dramatically and it was fun to read the explanations behind some of his behaviours. It was interesting to be a witness to a different point of view; the unfairness of it all. I love Styxx's character; he is sooo much more than I would have ever imagined (I might even like him more than Acheron!) Wow - this was a great book!

I liked the book, but anyone who is troubled by very graphic scenes of physical, sexual, mental and emotional torture might want to think twice. The story line really connects threads from previous books in the series but the book IS really graphic.

Even though there is no denying that there was rape, torture, and despair, this book doesn't deserve low ratings. It was a terrific read and it was well worth the wait.
Don't get turned off by the few bad comments and read this book!!(●^o^●)

I'm note sure if I liked it or hated it. Very disturbing scenes of child abuse, incest, male on male rape, gang rape, torture. The last 200 pages were ok. The end of the story left a lot of question and a set up for future books.

Same story as Acheron. Eight hundred pages of rape, torture and despair. Couldn't take it.

Three quarters of the book is more of a alternate history fantasy romance novel with the last part in present day. Very well done. Excellent Read.
