Hell On Earth
When the Chthonians brought the primal gods to a truce at the end of their great war, part of the pact they forged was that the worst of the evil the gods had unleashed against each other and mankind would be forever banished.
But forever is a long time. And nothing can contain those determined to find a way back.
To catch evil, it takes evil . . .
While Thorn is able to contain the demons unleashed on the ground, the ones who prey on the innocent sailors and sea faring travelers are beyond his reach.
For the sake of humanity, he makes a shaky alliance with an old foe, Marcelina. In the form of the ship they sail upon, she assembles a team under the command of Captain Devlyn Nathaniel Bane, one of the most notorious and bloodthirsty pirates to ever sail the high seas.
Damned and murdered by his own, Bane is out for revenge. With his own secret agenda, he agrees to take charge of the motley crew of pirates and brigands, and to protect the seas from the preternatural terrors that seek to devour every unwary soul they can take.
Theirs is a sacred and deadly task, as they are hunted by their prey and human authorities alike. If they fail, the world will fall to the ancient gods of chaos, and anarchy will reign. Most of all, the Southern gate, where the greatest, most powerful darkness is imprisoned, will be opened and there will be no stopping it.
It’s yo ho ho and a bottle of high seas stakes where the souls of all humanity are the ultimate prize and bargaining chip.
Praise for DEADMEN WALKING: A Deadman's Cross Novel
"Kenyon (Born of Legend) puts the lie to the old adage “Dead men tell no tales” in this jam-packed, appealing first book of her Deadman’s Cross historical fantasy series...this piratical tale is filled with swashbuckling, death, glory." ―Publishers Weekly on Deamen Walking
“Kenyon’s writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative.” ―Boston Globe
“Arguably the most in-demand and prolific authors in America these days.” ―Publishers Weekly
“[An] engaging read.” ―Entertainment Weekly
This book was absolutely amazing. This book was everything I had hoped for and more. The storyline was intriguing and the characters were very well-written, though at times frustrating. So I was unaware when reading this book that Thorne is not a new character. You can easily follow along with no problem, in my opinion, though. And there might be some information you would recognize if you had read other works by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
There were a few confusing issues K had with the story, things I didn't think we're very clear and maybe they will be answered in the next book. There were also slow parts in the story, but overall I though the pacing was done very well.
Overall, I thought this was a really great book. I cannot wait to read more in this series and hopefully read more of her books to find out more about Thorne and if there was information in this book that I didn't pick up on. I would highly recommend this book of you love fantasy.
