Rereading this again in anticipation of Styxx. Still good as I remember. Good in a way that it made me emotionally invested in Acheron's story and more reason to love him. ====2011====The thinness of this paperback is deceiving... Its actually much thicker than twilight books combine :PThere's two parts in which details of the life of the leader of the Darkhunters, Acheron, in his human life thousands years ago and the present in which he met Tory the love of his life. Its one of the best from Sherrilyn Kenyon and also heart wrenching at the same time as Acheron's pastlife before he had his god power was so horridly detailed in this book. Its definitely a must read for the fans of Sherrilyn Kenyon.
