I don't know if I'll ever read any more of Kenyon's stuff - I'm totally turned off by this book and life is pretty short to be spending time on abject fiction this painful.

There was so much unrelenting abuse of Styxx that it was completely unbelievable, and I ended up not caring about him, or caring to push on because it just *might get better, because of the abject unreality of the non-stop abuse of the main character. I had to bail on this one - just *ugh!

Sounds too depressing the way the boy is mistreated by his royal family. Not into that at his point in time, July 14, 2015.

**almost a direct quote from Amazon but this says want I couldn't put into words about this book**
Since we first learned about Acheron's royal brat brother, I have disliked Styxx. I mean lets be honest, the only reason why Styxx has ever done anything for Acheron was because Artemis forced Styxx to experience Acheron's life. when I first heard Kenyon was writing about about him I was stunned..why?.. Why do I want to read a story about a spoiled brat who realizes Ash actually had a horrible life and had a sudden epiphany and decides to be a good guy. What else could this story be about, everyone knows that Styxx has no redeeming qualities. Eventually, I decided I had to read the book. I love the Dark/Dream/Were Hunter series so much, I figured if nothing else I will get the opportunity to catch up with my favorite characters.
After the first chapter I realized all of my preconceived notions couldn't be more wrong. I flew through the pages that told of a childhood that was so different than the one I imagine the spoiled brat had lived. This story isn't for the faint of heart. Anyone who read about Acheron's childhood knows about the horrors that are possible and we see a lot of the same tortures in this book. There is so much darkness in this book and by the half way point I was thrilled that Styxx had finally found some happiness, however, with so much left to the book you know something bad is about to happen, something, really, really, bad.
This book does span 11,000 years, so there was a lot of change going on, not just in this book but in the reader as well. Once I got to the twenty first century, I had a new respect for Styxx. As you read about his childhood, I know that I teared up a few times, but as I got to the point where other's realize how mistreated Styxx actually had been, I was balling. I couldn't stop the tears and more than once I had to actually put the book down because my tears were making the words too blurry for me to continue.
The relationship between Styxx and Bethany is everything you want on a romantic journey. There is laughter and love and amazing chemistry. I love the way Bethany protects Styxx and how she loves him unconditionally. And there is so much humor in their relationship, everything from their witty flirtation to her inability to kill him no matter how hard she tries because she was protecting him. There is also enough pain and sorrow that you will start cursing the gods along with Styxx.
This book takes you on a journey that stirs your emotions and pulls you in. By the end of the book, I had taken Ryssa off the pedestal I had put her on and I felt sorry for her too. This time because she will never have the opportunity to change and see things as they actually were.
I am so glad I decided to Pick up this book and allowed Styxx to invade my heart, It was worth the journey.
