PREVIEW REVIEW: Stygian by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Book Blurb: Born before man recorded time, I lived for thousands of years, believing myself to be something I’m not.
Someone 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 a vengeful goddess prematurely ripped me from my mother and planted me into the womb of an innocent woman who thought me her son.
Trained as a slayer and predator, I’ve learned to fit in and stay low. To become a tool for evil. Until I was sent to kill the one woman I couldn’t. My hesitation cost her, her life.
Or so I thought. In an act of betrayal that makes all the others pale in comparison, I’ve learned that things are not what they seem in this world and that my Phoebe still lives.
Now I will 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, more than just my wife will die.
We will lose the world. Both human and Daimon.
~Urian of the House of Aricles

My Preview Review: As soon as I got approved to read this preview of Stygian I put down the book I'm currently in the middle of and started reading it. This was a long preview by the way but I loved it. I enjoyed seeing the early part of Urian's life and omg I didn't know that Styxx is Urian's father (I haven't read past Bad Moon Rising despite owning all the books in Kindle form and I really need to fix that). Plus Ash has an older dead brother. Wait what? I missed stuff because I haven't read all the books. I really enjoyed the friendship he has going on with Xyn. I'm eagerly awaiting the release of this book when it comes out in August. Hopefully, I'll be caught up with the other books by then.

Rating: ★★★★☆
