Waiting on Wednesday #21

 
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
 
As the queen of pre-orders I thought I would join in with the Waiting on Wednesday meme highlighting some of the upcoming books that I’m keen to get my hands on.
 
Styxx
Dark-Hunters #23
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Publication date: 3rd September 2013


Just when you thought doomsday was over...

Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge.

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.

The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now. She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. 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. Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to trust each other or more will suffer.

Yet it’s hard to risk your own life for someone who once tried to take yours, even when it's your own twin, and when loyalties are skewed and no one can be trusted, not even yourself, how do you find a way back from the darkness that wants to consume the entire world? One that wants to start by devouring your very soul?

Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series was one of my early favourites and I loved Acheron's book something fierce but then the series got a bit samey so I didn't read the last three books. I definitely want to read Styxx's book, I hope it's as epic as his twin Acheron's book and from the pictures Sherrilyn has posted of the manuscript it looks enormous!

  1. Wow, that manuscript is HUGE! And book #23? That's a whole lot of books! It's a great sign in a series when someone is so dedicated and excited for more after so many books. Thanks for sharing!

    My W.O.W.

  2. I can't wait to read this either! I got a bit tired of the series as well, but I'm hoping this one grabs my attention. Thanks for sharing!
