This is book number 17 in the Dark-Hunter Novels series.
One of my all time favorite books, even though it completely ripped my heart out. We finally learn Styxx's past and just what drove him to the actions that have made there way into previous novels. Like Acheron's story, it starts with his childhood and goes all the way to present day. I though I knew Styxx, boy was I wrong. I felt more for him than I did Acheron, and I didn't think that was possible. Styxx is a complex character that hides his hurt behind sarcasm and quips. While he seems tough to love, he has become of the characters that I know I will always cherish. This is a must read for all Kenyon fans. -Victoria
A sensational new chapter in the Dark-Hunter saga begins from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon
As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn't always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother—but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.
There are two sides to every story.
And you don't know Styxx…

He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop her. But things are never what they seem, and Acheron is no longer the last of his line…Meanwhile, Styxx is faced with a desperate decision: To save the world, he can either join forces with the brother who betrayed him or battle the only woman who has held his heart. Which will he choose? The real fight for survival is about to begin…
