Even though he was the youngest when he died, Acheron was the first Dark-Hunter ever appointed. He is also the writer of the Dark-Hunter Creed and of the Code we abide by.

Because of his Dark-Hunter age and the fact that he fought the Daimons alone for thousands of years, he is more phantom than real. He interacts with the other Dark-Hunters on a whim, and his sage advice is often sought. Eccentric and idiosyncratic to the extreme, he is a legend among legends.

The Dark-Hunters never know what to expect when Acheron enters a scene. He runs the full gamut from friendly to intimidating to downright scary. It is said of him that there has never been a mortal born who could equal his physical perfection. He possesses a raw, rare kind of charisma. To look at him is to want him. To see him is to ache to touch him.

No one knows why he became what he did. Then again, no one knows much about him. Period. And he likes it that way. Trying to get any personal information out if him is an impossible task. No one even knows what his real hair color is.

      Comments about Acheron:

      Acheron is one of the main characters who weaves through the Dark Hunter series. Loved him early, now I appreciate who, and why,he is what he is. The first part of this book is brutal, and some-what hard to read. The second part lifts your spirits. An amazing read, a MUST read, if you love this series.

            Comments about Acheron:

            Acheron is by far the best book in the Dark Hunter Series. I've re-read this book many times and will again. Every time I hear Donna summers song Last Dance I always think of Acheron. The book is divided into two parts. Acherons tragic mortal life and his re-birth into immortality. Acheron is a definate must-read. You will definately love it as much as I do.

              Comments about Acheron:

              For fans of the Dark Hunter series, this is the book you want to read. I loved Acheron before I read this book but after reading it I appreciate him so much more and think he is so amazing. It is an excellent telling of his story. Will read it again, even though his mortal life was so tragic.

                Have read this book many times, purchased for a friend, she loved it and is now reading the series. Created in such detail, the thing not good is I read it so fast I was wanting more.

                PRAISE FOR SHERRILYN KENYON "Kenyon is the reigning queen of the vampire novel."--Barbara Vey, "Publishers Weekly""An engaging read."--"Entertainment Weekly "on "Devil May Cry""Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic, sexy, and relentlessly imaginative. These are not your mother's vampire novels."--"The Boston Globe "on "Dark Side of the Moon"

                "‘Tis a shame they did that to you," Artemis said quietly. "You are far too beautiful to be made sterile. Shall I fix you?"

                "No. There's no reason to. I told you, no one would ever welcome a child conceived from me."

                It was the pain in his silvery eyes as he spoke that brought an unfamiliar ache to her chest. 
                Her poor Acheron.

                He looked spectacular lying back against the white linens that only emphasized the wide expanse of tawny masculine skin. Every muscle of his body was a study in perfection. He was so inviting. Warm. And he was completely unabashed about his nude sexuality. About what they'd done. He wasn't cocky or arrogant that he had touched her.

                He treated her like she was...

                Human.

                Most of her family couldn't stand her. Humans feared her. Even her handmaidens laughed amongst themselves, but kept their guard up whenever she drew near.  
                But this man...
                He was different. He held no fear of anything or anyone. Like a powerful, untamed beast, he was defiant and bold. Unyielding in her presence. He was docile now, but the power of him was undeniable. It was frightening even to her.

                "Have you any friends?" she asked.

                He shook his head. 

                "Why not?"

                "I suppose I'm not worthy of any."

                Artemis frowned at his reasoning. "It can't be that. I haven't any either and I am more than worthy. Perhaps there is a flaw to us." She paused as she thought about that. "No, that can't be right either. I have no flaws and yet I'm as alone as you are."
                Never before had Artemis realized just how alone she really was. Her twin brother had friends. He had lovers. Apollo was the closest thing to a friend she'd ever known, but even he was afraid of her. Apollo never invited her to do things with him unless it involved destruction or punishment. He didn't laugh with her or ask her to go out carousing or gaming.

                "Will you be my friend, Acheron?"

                Acheron was utterly stunned by her unexpected question. "You would befriend me?"

                She cocked her head as she watched him with a small puckering of her divine brow. She was shimmery and ethereal; far beyond the reach of something like him. "Well, yes. I mean, we can't let others know it, but I like what you have shown me. I wish to learn more about this world and about you." She smiled warmly at him as if she were truly sincere with her offer. It reminded him how rare such a thing as sincerity was. And friendship...
                It was an elusive dream he dare not allow himself. People like him didn't have friendship. Anymore than they had love or kindness. And yet he found a foreign part of himself aching for want of it.
                Aching for want of her.
                "So, are we friends, Acheron? I promise you, you'll never regret it."
                Sherrilyn Kenyon

                Multi-published romance author Sherrilyn Kenyon, AKA Kinley MacGregor, knows men. She lives outside of Nashville, TN with her husband, three sons and assorted pets. Raised in the middle of eight boys, and currently outnumbered by the Y chromosomes in her home, she realises the most valuable asset a woman has for coping with men is a sense of humour (not to mention a large trash bag and a pair of tongs).
