    Ahem *clears throat from all the bullshiznit I just swallowed* It leaves a bitter aftertaste.First, so I won't be a complete bi-atch. It's totally awesome that authors take the time to write, sometimes to the exclusion of family and a life. Not to mention carpal tunnel and hemorrhoids. I have not been able to make myself finish my own writing, so I know it takes determination, will-power, time, and self-motivation.I have really enjoyed Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series and Acheron put the icing on the cake. I feared that she could not out-do herself and to my utter disappointed she didn't.If you're Kenyon's butt buddy and are not mature enough to understand everyone has their own opinion, look away now, for I do not intentionally set out to hurt feelings..This book was:Frivolous: unworthy of serious or sensible treatmentincongruous: out of keeping or place; inappropriate; unbecominginconsistent:lacking agreement, as one thing with another or two or more things in relation to each otherfiller:an object or substance used to add weight or size to something or to fill in a gap600 Pages of Suffering:1. Styxx took the beatings in stride, always protecting his brother.2. Everyone (emphasis on everyone) hated, no, loathed Styxx with a passion. We're talking about a little boy, since the moment he was born.3. The hating and abuse never really let up.4. His mother drinks herself into a stupor wishing she'd never birthed her or Acheron and says so constantly.5. The mother slaps him.6. The mother stabs him 20 some times.7. His sister Ryssa constantly wishes he would die and be raped.8. Acheron is raped and beaten.9. Styxx is raped and owned.10. Acheron is taken away by his incestuous uncle Estes, who whores him out to everyone who actually wants a piece of Styxx, since they are twins.11. Acheron is drugged and turned away from his brother.12. Styxx tries to help him escape, but this new bitch-azz Acheron tells on him and Styxx gets branded physically and raped for like 2 months while Acheron laughs.13. Ryssa hates him some more and slaps him at least 20 times in this book. I wish I had the ebook to look up how many times it was typed. If you include Xerses, Estes, Ryssa, and his mom, I'm sure it's over 50 times at different time periods in the book. THAT GOT ON MY NERVES SO BAD.14.Okay, I felt sorrow for Styxx after his first, second, and fifth smackdown, but by the 15th he's starting to look like a wimpy punk.15. Galen beat the snot out of him for years, but magically on the 1,110 training session, he feels he went too far and starts to respect him and not look at him as a stuck-up brat, then call him SON. What the HEE-HAW?!?!?!?!?!?!15. Styxx is a bad mamma-jamma when he's on the battlefield kicking god-children and giants azzes, but come home and Appolo throws him across the room like a football and Xerses punches him in the ribs and kicks him?16. Ryssa smacks him some more and scratches him with her nails.17. Acheron, Ryssa, and their mom try to kill him.18. Styxx was constantly put between a rock and a hard place and no one. I mean NO ONE was there for him until he met Bethany. (oh, and Galen)19. What? Artemis lied about Styxx. *sarcastic voice* She would never do that.20. Characters were flipping the script left and right, doing things totally out of character. Galen was the biggest and then when Xerses started loving on him, then when Acheron said "brothers" near the end of the book like they were about to tag into a ring to fight.21. What about the bullshiznit way everything was told to Acheron at the end of the book to get him to feel for Styxx? Sav said he wasn't going to tell him anything saying something like, "some thinga are best not known or remembered." Then he goes on to tell him all the things that happened to Styxx and how Acheron knew about it.22. Oh, and the end. I just couldn't kill your baby. Turn around, he's right there.My main peeve is all the rape. We get it! He was horribly abused and he's still a good guy even though he went through so much. I didn't count, but he was getting raped or beaten for like 600 pages. The boy got raped right before he went to go see his girlfriend.ARE YOU KIDDING ME????????????? THIS IS CONSIDERED GOOD FICTION????????I wanted Styxx to die so I didn't have to read anymore of this book. I hate that I read how wimpy Styxx was and how Acheron was a complete azzhole. I now see him in a different light. Styxx to me, was no hero. They didn't even let him have that glory. The best part of this book was when he was fighting and that ended all too soon. I didn't even care that Bethany was back by the end of the book. This book sucked the happiness out of me. No Joke.If this was a first time author it would have gotten more hell over the constant raping. Even though it is not described in excessive detail, it came up way too much to not have your mind go there. There was no skimming it. There was no pretending it wasn't happening. This whole book was overdone and I'm finished chewing on it. I'd rather a great book with fantastic characters be 300 pages than 600 pages of repetition and despair.

    Some people really loved this book. They gave it 5 star reviews. Some even called it the best thing Sherrilyn Kenyon has ever written. I am not one of those people. In fact, I was barely able to make myself finish Styxx. Not because it was 800-and something pages... but because it was one of the most miserable books I have ever read. It is filled from cover to cover with rape, incest, abuse, torture, and unrelenting suffering for our hero. Before you tell me that Kenyon is Queen of the Tortured Hero, don't waste your breath. There is no balance in this story between darkness and light. It's 95% horrible and 5% ...well, not horrible for Styxx. And in case you're wondering, "It can't be worse than Acheron, can it?" Well, yes it can. And yes, it is.Basically, this is the companion story to Acheron's book, from Styxx's point of view. It essentially throws out everything Ash thought he knew about his brother. Styxx was abused physically, emotionally, and sexually. He loses his virginity in an incestuous gang rape. On page. Then he is raped more times than the total of all rapes I have ever read in any books in my life, put together. He is raped and raped and raped. By his uncle, the guy's buddies, senators, Greek gods, Atlantean gods, the guards, the freaking guy who whips him for his dad. Everybody rapes him. And then when you think to yourself, he can't possibly be raped any more, he is taken captive and raped for a year straight. It's simply horrific. And that is not counting the torture by the monks with the hot pokers, the constant pain he feels from every injury committed against Acheron, or the attempts on his life by every single member of his family.His mother hates him. His sister hates him. Ash hates him. So does every member of the government... every member of the royal household. Pretty much everyone except his beloved trainer Galen, who actually hated him for several years first. He doesn't even meet his heroine until 175 pages into the book. They're with each other off and on about 5 years (while he is getting raped on the side all the while) -- and they are apart more than they are together. Then Ash becomes a God and Styxx gets sent to live alone on an island for 11-thousand years. With his heroine dead. 11-thousand years. Because 21 years of rapes, torture and abuse isn't enough. Yet he comes through it all with a good heart. And he still is capable of love and a desire to have sex. Only with Bethany, of course. (That's the heroine's name, by the way.)Plus... when he finally gets off the island... and he tries to kill Ash to end his own miserable existence... he gets the extra treat of living through Acheron's memories for three years. There is no end to this man's suffering. And even past page 775, he is still miserable and being manipulated and thrown away. Does this tell you anything??I know the idea is that there is supposed to be something beautiful about a man so tortured being able to retain his ability to love. But there is nothing beautiful here. I ended up just wishing the poor man could die, simply to end the cruelty.P.S. Acheron is painted as a complete jerk in this book.I'm done.Rating: D-
