"Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others."

The eldest son in a family of three boys, Aricles had no desire to be a soldier, even though his fighting skills were among the best in the world. He was more than content on his small Atlantean farm, living a quiet, uneventful life. But when his brother is determined to don a soldier’s uniform, Aricles joins him with a promise to their father to bring his brother home in one piece. What he never counts on is how much their new lives will forever change them, or what the risk of a forbidden love will ultimately cost him.

Hear it from the Fans

So I read House of the Rising Sun before knowing it was a precursor to Styxx, and I loved it but I'm torn between kicking myself for it and fan girling like crazy!! Love these books so much!!

also, his Designation says human, but isnt he Atlantean? Three mortal races, Humans, Apollites, Atlanteans?

    He is Atlantean, but most visitors wouldn't understand what that means until they read the story. We put that there so that they know he's not a demon or god, etc.

so I was reading Dark Bites, and the way he fights several Charonte Demons by himself made no sense. How was he able to kill the Charonte?

abs, June 21, 2016

    He's Atlantean, not human. Atlanteans were at war with the Charonte and they have abilities that humans don't have. Fighting Charonte was something they were all trained to do. Also he was super strong and capable which was the point of that story. He wasn't the "average" man on the street.

Just noticed that you gave styxx and articles both an identical twin and the same birthday! Love it!

SPOILER------------------------------------------------------ Just to clarify, I was distraught at the end of House of the Rising Son because of the way it ended, but I'd like to read Styxx as it is an apparent continuation. Is Aricles the same person as Styxx? or rather, is Styxx a Reincarnation? at the end Aricles promised that he wound find Bathymaas again and repair their broken heart, however Bathymaas is reborn as Bethany. It would make me so happy if their love could continue!

    Yes, Styxx is the continuation.

If Aricles and his brothers were born the sons of a farmer how'd Galenus found the House of Aricles

    Historically kings were the strongest. It wasn't a blood rite. It was who conquered and who their heroes were.

    MB_Staff, February 20, 2014

You scare me. No I'm serious, you honest to god scare me. You beat down on apollo like he was nothing. Your my favorite part of my fav charcter. SPOILER-----If only katra gave you power siphoned from archon, you deserve god hood, you've earned it. Also I think you going to be a big help in future battles. I'm rooting for you.
