Acheron

I've held onto this book for almost two weeks.  It's a gorgeous book.  700 pages.  A story I have waited to read for years.  Pined after, really.  I mean, who hasn't read the Dark-Hunter novels and not been completely captivated by Ash?  Every time he made an appearance, I clung to every word, every description, every tiny bit of information that might shed light on him and his past.  He is the 'top of the food chain' when it comes to heroes.  The ultimate.  And suddenly, after all these years of Dark-Hunter loyalty and fan-dom, I couldn't pick up his book and read it.  I knew once I did the mystery would be solved.  

But yesterday morning, I finally picked it up.  I finished it in the wee hours of this morning, and it was all that I hoped and imagined it would be.  I felt ill for him.  I cried for him -- yes, I admit it.  And today, I feel sad.  Sad for him and all he suffered.  Yeah, I know, he's only a character. But he's a character I've come to love like no other.  And I'm sad that the mystery is gone.  Yet, I wanted to know.  Had to know.  Needed to know.  And I wouldn't have had it any other way.   I loved the story.  

I'm glad the DH series will continue, and can't wait to see what happens next, what new characters appear and what legends will be born.  

And I am looking forward to the day when Simi is finally allowed to eat that bitch heifer goddess!!
