Stygian: A Dark-Hunter Novel

REVIEW Ò Stygian: A Dark-Hunter Novel By Sherrilyn Kenyon Í 9 REVIEW REVIEW Stygian: A Dark-Hunter Novel #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon brings us back to the astonishing world of the Dark Hunters in Stygian with a hero misunderstood by manybut most of all by himself Born before man recorded time I lived for thousands of years believing myself to be something I’m not Some one I’m not Lied to and betrayed by gods Daimons and Dark Hunters I’ve struggled to find my way in a world where I’ve been cursed since the moment I was. I ve been a long time fan of the series I ve read all the books and over the past week I re read Styxx and every book that came after it just so I would be caught up for Urian I expected it and wanted it to be as good or better than Styxx so I was expecting a lot of the plot points tackled in past books to be explored and further developed here Then the prologue of this book is also a bit of a plot bomb so after reading the prologue I was ready for a wild rideBoy was I wrong There are many things wrong with this book but I ll only discuss the 3 that bothered me the most1 This is the book with the greatest amount of inconsistencies I ve seen in all my years reading DHStygian was supposed to address and resolve some of the plot points we ve been seeing gather in previous book For example Who is tampering with the temporal line Introduced at the end of Styxx Who is Acheron s father aka Kissare reincarnated Introduced during Styxx and re introduced at the end of Dragonsworn What are Sarraxyn s Dragonmark powers Introduced during Dragonmark Is Tiyana Deveraux alive or trapped in another dimension Introduced at the end of Son of No One The book doesn t touch a single one of these plot points and even worse in trying to reconcile its story with what we know so far it pops one inconsistency after the other to the point in which it starts to contradict and sabotage itself by revealing inconsistencies that were actually introduced or addressed earlier in the storyStygian is fraught with this little inconsistencies that makes me wonder whether it actually ever went through a proper round of content editing In a series already confusing because of too much content it gave me a headache just to try to put everything in place2 Almost 200 pages of repeated content wastedI wasn t happy with the amount of scene recycling almost to the verbatim that happens in Stygian In this case I believe it s even worse than in Dragonmark because just like in Acheron and Styxx this book has 2 arcs A past arc and a present arc The past arc has a lot of character development for Urian and because of this the fact that the present arc is basically the same old scenes we ve already seen the second part of the book suffers in comparison The only part of the second arc that are interesting are the pages where his relationship with Phoebe is explored Everything else up until the end is repeated content I was pretty disappointed by this because I came into this book wanting to see parts of Urian we hadn t seen before such as how he adapted to not being a Daimon any how his relationship with Styxx changed from friends to father son how he interacted with Styxx and Bethany as his new parents in a household dynamic how he coped with the fact that Styxx with whose loss he identified was now happy and how he reacted to having a new immortal little brother after having lost all 9 of his siblings None of these conflicts were resolved or even addressed during Stygian in fact we did not get a single scene that featured an interaction between Styxx Bethany and Urian as a family The only psychological growth we see from the character during the second half of the book is his forgiveness and acceptance of Stryker at the very end It bothers me that the author wasted so much time on the things that we had already read and didn t approach any of these topics which now will never be addressed as we are moving into a new story arc3 This book completely belies and shatters Urian s characterOver the last 20 books Urian s core appeal as a character has been his staunch devotion to his dead wife and yet in this book we see him sleeping around holding relationships with 4 different women a couple of them at the same time professing his love for one woman while he sleeps with another one and holding a loving relationship with a woman for 8000 that somehow someway never made it into any of the 20 books of content that we ve had since we met the characterFor Stygian the author wanted to follow the structure that worked so well for Styxx by situating a love interest for Urian in the past get separated for motives not of their doing and having them reconnect in the future In fact it follows almost the exact pattern down to the fact that both Bethany and Sarraxyn end up turn to stone during the years they are away from Styxx and Urian The only problem is while the approach of the secret lover worked with Styxx because we were not that familiar with his characters we have been following Urian s story for a while and as such such a big secret so big that no one EVER has mentioned it seems ludicrous and unbelievable As a result the book portrays Urian as fickle and lacking depth in the way in which he deals with his relationshipsIn the past he meets Sarraxyn and falls in deep eternal heartbreaking love with her much like Styxx he reaches Katoteros in her arms she gives him the kind of love that will destroy him if lost the kind of love no one recovers from Except that then of course he loses it Oh poor Urian we ll suffer with you we ll hurt with you till the end of time oh no wait 2 chapters later he meets Phoebe Miracle Miracle Once again eternal heartbreaking love not much like Styxx once again Katoteros in her arm with the exact same love words and the exact same feelings Once again if he loses his love this time this time for sure he will lose his mind Wow Urian we are so happy that you managed to move on after the horrible pain of 2 chapters But of course as we know Phoebe dies too Poor Urian poor poor Urian We feel his hurt his sadness his despair we see him thread the edge of suicide for 16 long years 16 long years of loneliness and agony 16 years of unimaginable pain that never ends until Sarraxyn appears out of nowhere and he jumps into bed with her literally seconds after they meet again With no regrets grief or hesitancy after those 16 long years because hey love is love right Doesn t matter that it s 2 different women he loves them both the same way so exchanging them willy nilly is surely not that big a deal Love is always good Especially when the author has suandered 600 pages of her book and now needs to scurry around to pull a happy ending however ridiculous from out of her sleeve in the remaining 40 pagesNot anything like StyxxI really wanted to like Urian and Sarraxyn mainly because I like Urian and I like Sarraxyn but every time they came together it felt so shallow and fake to me Like the author was bent on getting them together even if it didn t fit even if their interactions were awkward and out of syncAnd then the author goes and makes Phoebe whose relationship with Urian actually gets explored in depth and it s believable the bad guy of the book Phoebe who has been Urian s character flag for 20 books Who has been the staple by which people recognized the core of Urian s character But hey who cares about than 10 years of relationship and 16 years of mourning you are a bad guy now So boom bara boom I don t love you anyIt read to me like a cheap lazy exit Almost as if the author wanted Sarraxyn to be Urian s HEA but she didn t want to go through the trouble of actually resolving the 16 years of grief that Urian had carried around and give him and Phoebe the ending they should ve hadTo be honest I didn t want Urian ending with Phoebe I wanted him to end with Sarraxyn but the way she did it just makes me feel like I was cheated out of the story I was promised and out of the true deep and heartfelt romance she never delivered

REVIEW Ò Stygian: A Dark-Hunter Novel By Sherrilyn Kenyon Í 9 REVIEW REVIEW Stygian: A Dark-Hunter Novel Have to travel into the very pits of Hades to try and save her even as everyone around me attempts to steal what little soul I have left There’s only one person at my back and I’m not sure I can trust her either for she was born of an enemy race Yet sometimes the road to redemption is one that singes us to our very core And if I fail to find the answers I need to save Phoebe than just my wife will die We will lose the world Both human and Daimo. After the last couple of copypaste books from Kenyon I was dubious about this book The first half of the book was mostly original gave Urian a good back story But we didn t need to have the copy paste of every scene from other books that he had been in It could have been done in the same was as Ash s book where you then jump to present time give him his own story Probably won t bother with any other SK books now as the last 4 that I have read have been phone ins

After previous books had basically copy and paste through 50 percent of the book I was hoping after all the hype that this would be a original. Sadly it is not. There are close to 100 or pages that are word for word of Styxx and falycns book. If you didn’t read those then this book will be wonderful. If you have sorry only the first part is new material.

I’ve been reading and listening to this on Audible and am now on Chapter 15 and cant take any. I have loved all of Sherrilyn’s books until this one. Even Holster Graham’s narration can’t make me finis this book.

What’s new makes a good story it’s just supremely irritating to read a chapter and be certain you’ve read it before in a different book with only a few changes to differentiate the two. The part I was really looking forward to, Urian’s adjustment to living parents, was barely mentioned. I would have
