Beispiel: Artemis: Mir gefällt nicht, das dein Haar jetzt schwarz ist.
Acheron: Und mir gefällt nicht, das dein Kopf noch auf deinen Schultern sitzt. Man kriegt eben nicht immer was man will.
Dummerweise hören sich nach ihm nun alle anderen Sprecher/innen nur noch nach Gekrächze an ;-))
The first part describes Ash's upbringing in gruesome detail. Over 400 pages of sexual abuse, degradation, brutality, torture, castration and much more. While the concept of tortured heroes is a popular one among paranormal romances, this one got way too far for my tastes. Several times I simply did not want to go on reading; not exactly a recommendation for a book. What kept me going was the need to know the solution to all the mysterious bits and pieces of Ash which were shown in the other DH books.
Here Kenyon delivers the full background and therefore it was still worth the read. Nevertheless, I certainly will never read this part of the book again.
The second part is more traditional, describing how Ash falls in love with Soteria. Sadly, the story didn't "sing" for me like the other DH ones. After torturing the reader - and the hero - over hundreds of pages and thousands of years with descriptions of unwanted sexual encounters and showing Ash as a self-contained, reclusive, and strictly no-touch person, he begins lusting for a female he humiliated in public who hates his guts. The following events do not click either, as already mentioned in the rescensions above.
I got the impression that Ms. Kenyon poured much of her own experiences into the first part of the book - I can't imagine anyone without firsthand experience to invent some of the deatils - which makes it so incredibly dense and hard to bear. The trap lies in creating a believable transition from the tortured to the loving and trusting person and still keeping up the depth. In the previous books, she did this convincingly (p.e. Zarek or Valerius), but in the case of mighty and mysterious Asheron, it fell a little flat. How does an Atlantean god fall in love? This should be an earthshaking, rock-the -house- to its-foundations-story. Sadly, for me, it was not. The timing feels off, the emotional responses are unconvincing, and the chances for a racey adventure-story (chasing after the lost treasure) could have profited from more scenes and details.
In a nutshell: for readers interested in the Dark-Hunters, this book is a must-have; be prepared for a bumpy ride.
First impresisions: the cover looks really beautiful and the book is a big one, 722 pages to enjoy.
Like many other fans of the Hunter-series I had high expectations regarding this book. And for me all of them were fullfilled because the book is just perfect.
Ok, part 1 is hard too read because it deals with Ash's past and after getting glimpses of it in other books now for the first time you see the whole horrible tragedy of it. I cried several times while reading it because of what Ash had to go through. But you have to read it to really understand the person Ash is today and to finally understand what motivates him to make a change in the human world.
Part 2 is all about the present and giving Acheron some much needed happiness. For the second time in the series you meet his heroine, Tory, who is just perfect for him (after reading part 1 it became clear that Artemis could never be his heroine).
Tory, more at home in the world of history and books, is the perfect match for Acheron because she has no prejudices and a lot of love to give without demanding anything Ash doesn't want to give.
It's nice to see how Ash behaves with someone he truly loves and trusts (ok, I had to cry again, because it's just so beautiful reading about him being happy).
Besides seeing Ash truly happy for the first time there are going on other interesting developments involving Nick and Artemis. You also get to see some glimpses of Savitar and his humour and I really enjoyed his interactions with Ash. Hope Sav will get his own book in the future.
So as a facit if you haven't already bought yourself a copy of Acheron get one, look for a quiet place, grab some tissues, enough food and water for a couple of days and enjoy this perfect book.
Have fun - norarobertsismyqueen.
