About the Book

Original Publication Date: September 03, 2013

Just when you thought doomsday was over…

Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge.

As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother’s side. They’ve spent more centuries going at each other’s throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he’s willing to trade his life and future for Acheron’s.

The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished.

Until now.

She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop...

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. Because of Acheron's life choices and refusal to listen to Styxx's warnings, he was humiliated to be related to Acheron. The fact that they were identical in looks made it all the worse for him, and he was mocked throughout his life for it. Because of his own isolation brought on by being Acheron's...

The Heroine: Bethany

The daughter of the Egyptian god Set and the Atlantean goddess Symfora, Bethany was raised in the Atlantean pantheon as their goddess of Wrath, Misery and the Hunt. It was a task she never relished and she would find peace from her duties by escaping into the human realm where she fell in love with a young farmer named Hector. For him alone, she was willing to give up her godhood and live as a mortal in their world. But on the very day...

The Story Behind The Story

You know, I LOVE every book I work on, otherwise I wouldn't let it see print. I don't think it's fair to any of you to just chuck something out to have it on the market. I think too much of my readers and characters for that. My personal belief is that all of you deserve only my absolute best and that’s what I put into everything I write. The downside is that books do occasionally have to be moved because they needed more time to write or I wrote the book and it stunk and needs to be overhauled completely (Darkness Within). The latter is the hardest because once you get it in your head and set the story to paper, it’s hard to undo it and go in a new direction. But when something doesn’t work, a writer knows it and a reader will too so the project has to be set aside until the writer can remove their heart from it and look at it objectively. Or toss it and forget all the...

I have a question, is Xedrix Acheron's father? Anyone else catch the reference in this book that Archon is not Acheron's father?

Thank you sherrilyn for styxx, I could not believe I actually cried reading this book. I thought Ash had it bad, but styxx..... thank you for this book and showing me a guy who was the embodiment of courage. love this book

this story is wonderful. guys if you think that acheron was the most wonderful book then you should reconcider your opinion. styxx is the best and he has suffered more than acheron. his story is simply heart wrenching. at least acheron had his sister ryssa by his side but styxx..he had nobody with whom he can share his pain..until he met bethany. take my word for it, dont miss styxx..and best of luck sherilyn. love, prishavee.

Ugh!! Needed a breather!! I'm at work and this book is on audio and I'm CRYING!! My co-workers keep asking, "What's wrong?". lol!! There's no way to even explain this story without explaining the others so I just say, "I'm fine; just listening to a really good book". Saying that just doesn't feel like enough! I still love Acheron. After what was done to him, everyone that had a hand in cruelty towards him deserves whatever karma is served. However, I better understand Styxx and have empathy for him that I never thought possible. I'm sure that will grow as I continue to listen. Oh well, break time is over. Back to this awesome story!

SPOIlER! Question.... In this book Archon mentions that he is not Acheron's father. And In the book about stryker, Menyara says that acheron was half human and half charonte before his powers were unlocked. Who is his real father?

Concerned Fan, August 14, 2014

I loved this book. When I saw the book teaser I knew I'd love it and I was right! By the way what is the name of the song used in the book teaser?

Alice, July 30, 2014

    Sorry, we don't know. The only one we were told is Soldier by Adam Ezra Group.

As someone who also studied Sparta and the Ancient Greek world i can especially appreciate the historical references to like Xerxes and objects like Hoplons which actually did exist in ancient Greece (Which is awesome) best history lession ever!

#inloveswithisbook, July 30, 2014

wow I've never read a book that made me feel like this and I thought ash had it bad styxx was excellent well worth the sleepless night kudos to sherrilyn it was great !!

cheryl, July 15, 2014

Hello, I just finished 'Styxx' and I loved it. It moved me even more than 'Acheron' but I just wanted to know if Acheron still means to call his daughter (if he ever has another) Ryssa now that he has Styxx memories? And if there was a strange deal with Acheron's wedding since Styxx was there but it isn't mentioned in 'Styxx'. Thank you

Elim, July 13, 2014

I cannot believe this. I finished it last night, and by the Gods did we judge him wrong. I am still going through it all and processing everything. I can't believe what happened. This is in my top 5 favorite books now.
