Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Acheron (Dark-Hunter, Book 12) [Audiobook, CD, Unabridged] [Audio CD]
Sherrilyn Kenyon (Author), Holter Graham (Narrator)

I read this book when it came out in August of 2008. When I was in my local library, I saw that they also have it there. Since I have been driving at least 20 hours a week, I decided to keep up with 'reading' by listening to audio books. I started with David Baldacci's audio books which I have on hand. Then I saw this one. Nineteen (19) discs long!

I still like the story, but I just never noticed before how almost half of the book, Acheron suffered. For such a powerful being, for someone who has the power of life and death of all beings, he sure is powerless for up to disc 10. I understand he didn't know he was a god before. There's an excellent reason for this. But what about afterwards? After he knew?

Would I recommend this book? Sure! It is a Sherrilyn Kenyon after all. However, I just want to warn you that the utter hopelessness, pain and humiliation is worth the book. I think that I listened through it all because I like Ash from the previous 11 books. I wanted to know why he behaves the way he does. This book can be read or listened to by itself....but just know it's part of a Dark Hunter Series, too.
