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.

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...

help guys, i need to know of styxxs story after this book. what do i read?

michael erskin, October 20, 2015

    The book after Styxx is Son of No One. Carl MB Staff

    Carl, MB Staff, October 22, 2015

Someone commented on different dates for Mardi gra. In Night Play Styxx is there in 2003 but in Stxx it was 2004.

kelly brunson, October 7, 2015

    They CE did that because they didn't realize what it was referring to. Carl MB Staff

    Carl, MB Staff, October 8, 2015

In Acheron's book, It was stated that Styxx was one of Ash's best men but in Styxx's book Styxx was in a coma during Ash's wedding. Please explain that contradiction

Lucy, September 8, 2015

    It's not a contradiction. If you check the dates, he wakes up before the wedding. It's why Urian goes to wake him. He goes to get Styxx FOR the wedding. Styxx then goes to the wedding for a couple of hours, returns home, and then leaves to go walkabout. Sherri didn't put the wedding scene in Styxx because there was no need to as the scene had been written for Ash's book and she didn't think it pertinent to show another scene of Ash ignoring Styxx and Styxx feeling left out. She assumed readers would realize the wedding took place in the days between Styxx waking and leaving.

This needs to be a movie with Liam Hemsworth and Chris Hemsworth playing Ash and Styxx

robin and mallorie, August 6, 2015

I never thought i will love styxx that much but i do...he is my favorite....n now i feel so angry at ash For the way he treated styxx n ryssa....i have no word to say how much i dislike her!!!

Nitisha, July 11, 2015

I love this book. It is an amazing story and I can't help but love it. I've read it five times now and I want to read it a sixth.

Sydney, June 23, 2015

Loved this book!

kisha, May 25, 2015

I must give congratulations where they are due. My favorite character in this series has always been Acheron. I love love love Acheron. However, Styxx's story made me so very angry with Ash. I couldn't believe how well you structured Styxx's story to make me want to choke Ash. Lol. Very well done. As long as I don't reread Styxx's story I have forgiven Ash. Nice job. I would have told you nothing could make me upset with Ash before reading.

Kimberly, May 21, 2015

It implies in this book that Archon isn't Acheron's father. If so, THEN WHO IS? Because of his demon form I want to say some type of demon or Daimon, but... his powers imply something more powerful. And the way Appolymi hates Savitar I'm tempted to say it was him.

Jenni, May 2, 2015

I love them both but I have always stopped and thought about Styxx and what was really going on behind the behavior and all I saw was pain from him also. That being said Styxx is my favorite all time book by SK and my most read book. Muah! SK for a job well done on this book!
