"Hits, I can take. After all, I was slapped on the ass the minute I was born, and not a damn thing has changed since."

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 twin, he hated Acheron with a passion.

Unfortunately, their lives were tied together by Acheron’s mother. So when Apollo killed Acheron, Styxx died as well. And when Acheron returned to life, Styxx was also brought back.

And he isn’t happy about that, either.

Hear it from the Fans

I absolutely loved Styxx. I bought it on a whim over the weekend--first book of yours I have ever read. I find Styxx to be one of the most compelling characters I have ever read about and after reading the comments, I am glad I read his story first!!

So I just finished reading Styxx. Loved it. I can't believe what happened to Styxx & Acheron. So what is Styxx now? Is he Cththonian?

Savannah, June 14, 2015

    Yes, he's a Chthonian.

I hate it when Sherrilyn played with my emotion. Before this I really dislike Styxx for what he did but after reading Styxx I kinda frustrated by Acheron.. But I guest that's what brothers are about. Speaking from experience from years of loving/hating my sibling..
