About the Book

Original Publication Date: August 03, 2008

Setting: Ancient Greece, Atlantis, Modern New Orleans, Nashville

From the World of the Dark-Hunters comes the most anticipated book to date…

Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron endured a lifetime of hatred. His human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind.

Only it was never that simple…

For centuries, he has fought for our survival and hidden a past he never wants revealed.

Now his survival, and ours, hinges on the very woman who threatens him. Old enemies reawaken and unite to kill them both.

War has never been deadlier… or more fun.

The Hero: Acheron

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...

The Heroine: Tory

A woman on a mission, Tory is determined to salvage her father's reputation and to prove  once and for all that Atlantis was real. No one, not even the Greek gods themselves will stop her... Or so she thinks. The irony is that Tory's grandfather was rescued from a war torn Greece by Acheron and brought to America. During the long trip to America, Ash stayed with the boy and entertained him with stories about the mythical Atlantis. Those...

The Story Behind The Story

First let me say that I’m more than aware of the fact that the ancient calendar differed dramatically from our own. But since I’m dealing with a time of unrecorded history, I used our calendar for the dates to allow the reader to have an idea of when things were taking place. I hope for those of you who are sticklers for such things that you’ll understand why it was necessary.

That being said, I’ve also taken license with how things were in the ancient world in the beginning. I’ve structured the world of ancient Greece and Atlantis around a later time period and given them more technological advances than what the historical record shows for the true time of when the book is set.

In my world, they had a lot of nifty toys until Atlantis was sank into the ocean and Apollymi’s wrath sent mankind back into the Stone Age. This is also dealt with and explained in...

What is the title of the part 2 of Acheron?

Michael, September 23, 2011

Honestly, I love Acheron he's an amazing character and has helped me move on from my past. But I don't find Tory a perfect match for Acheron. But besides that, it's a great read.

My brain is still trying to essemble it all. I'm having withdrawal symptoms and wish Acheron was a real so I could give him a big hug! I'm seriously effected by his story.

My brain is still trying to essemble it all. I'm having withdrawal symptoms and wish Acheron was a real live boy so I could give him a big hug! I'm seriously effected by his story.

I had always wondered about ash. I knew he had my heart but after reading his story, I couldn't help but love him more. He is amazing and Tori is a perfect half to ash. I love ash!

Victoria, September 3, 2011

My favorite...very hard to read the first part as it is graphically brutal, but certainly well written to give insights to later events. Well done, lady!
