Romir Gadana had no idea how long he had been in his prison before being called forth by his new master. The “ship” she had brought him to was nothing like he had ever seen or imagined. Read More »

Audio Review: Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon

I know every fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunters series has read Acheron. It is one of the most emotional romance books that I have ever read. With that said, it is not just a romance. It is a gut-wrenching Greek Tragedy. It is a paranormal romance that will tear you apart and then many, many pages later allow you to pull yourself together. And it is the most pivotal book I have read in this or pretty much any series. You cannot read Acheron without a tear or several rolling down your cheek. You cannot listen to Holter Graham’s voice as he brings this story to life without bawling your eyes out and curling up in a ball trying to keep yourself from feeling Ash’s pain.
