WOW! When I opened my box from Amazon and looked at Acheron for the first time I couldn't believe it. It is so thick! I was very excited. The first half of the book is all history of how Ash turned into the Ash that we've come to know and love in the other Dark Hunter novels. The second half of the book is a present day story more like the other novels in the series.I've enjoyed [author:Sherrilyn Kenyon] for a while now and read all the other books in the series. My favorites are [book: Night Play] and [book:Dance With the Devil]. Now I can add Acheron to my favorites list too.
