The most highly-anticipated novel in the Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series since Acheron is here―the unforgettable story of Styxx, Acheron's twin brother and one of the most powerful beings on earth
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?

As the best-selling Dark-Hunter series about the centuries-spanning adventures of the immortal warriors of Atlantis enters its second decade, international phenom Kenyon extends the story of her most popular character, Acheron (Acheron, 2008), to include his identical twin, Styxx. Styxx appears to have it all, but the apparent glamor and privilege of being the crown prince of Didymos is merely an illusion. The king has impossible expectations for Styxx and doesn’t understand that every beating he gives Acheron, whom he hates, is also felt by his twin. When the twins were young children, the only peace Styxx experienced was when he and Acheron lay down with the soles of their feet touching. As a teenager, Styxx goes to Atlantis and attempts to rescue Acheron from their cruel uncle, who viciously retaliates. For the next 11,000 years, the brothers despise each other. Kenyon’s epic tale of sibling rivalry and hatred fueled by the manipulations of gods from multiple pantheons features enough depravity and underhanded politics to give The Game of Thrones a run for its money. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Kenyon is such a mega-seller, this Dark-Hunter title has a 350,000 initial print run and a six-figure marketing budget for a glitzy launch and media and online blitz. --Diana Tixier Herald
