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.

I highly recommend Acheron, for those who can handle HUGE amounts of heart ache and loss... not for the soft-hearted
From all kennyon's books Acheron is by far the best....I have read it 20 times now!!!! Brilliant
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.
Great book to read love tha authors work
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.
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.
