The Hero: Styxx

The identical twin brother of Acheron, Styxx was born to wealth and power. During their mortal lives, Styxx believed himself to be the older brother.

The Story Behind The Story

Second Chances was written as a special thank you gift to readers. What no one could foresee was the high demand that readers would have for it. Unfortunately, only 75,000 booklets were printed and the stores didn't realize how zealous Dark-Hunter fans were. They were deluged by the demand. Some Canadian fans drove down to the US to get copies. Since some stores didn't realize fan demand, they threw the booklets out. Fans who learned of this, went through Dumpsters to get the books. Copies of them have sold on eBay for as much as $400. But never let it be said that DH fans aren't the best in the world. Dozens of fans banded together to seek out the booklets and send them for free to Menyons all over the world.

Hear it from the Fans

I just finished Styx tonight, and I think I cried through maybe 90% of it. It broke my heart. I am so glad I finally read it. Excellent book. Thank you for writing it.

I love this book! The story of both Acheron and Styxx brings tears to my ears and I'm a guy lol. Now will there be a new book after this following what was said in the end? "Razar has returned"? It sounds so awesome. I'm hoping for one. I hate being named after Apollo he's a major jerk in the series( okay he does have some good moments) but you write him well.

I haven't finished the book yet, and my heart aches for Styxx. I hated him for a long time, but this book has opened my eyes up to him and his pain. I'm to a point that I'll need to re-read Ashes book just to refrain from hating him. Styxx's story is so powerful to me, as someone who puts a lot of value on family.
