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.
