This is book number 11 in the Dark-Hunter Novels series.
This book made me laugh, cry, scream, swoon, the works! We finally learn Acheron's past and how he became the leader of the Dark-Hunters. The story starts with his past, good and bad. It also touches on scenes that were in previous books, so we get to see just what was behind his thinking and actions. The last half of the book is the present, where he meets the spitfire Tory. From the moment he meets her, his world is flipped and he doesn't understand why she doesn't seem intimated by him. This story is one that, while parts are hard to go back to, I always find myself wanting to return to. It is a long, emotional read. But oh so good. -Victoria
Eleven thousand years ago, a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. But the strongest steel is forged from the fires of hell…
Acheron's human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Then, brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind. Only it was never that simple. For centuries, Acheron has fought for our survival and hidden a past he'll do anything to keep concealed. Until a lone woman who refuses to be intimidated by him threatens his very existence. Now his survival—and ours—hinges on hers, and old enemies reawaken and unite to kill them both. War has never been more deadly...or more fun.
