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.

It's actually been awhile since I've read a new paranormal. I have such a difficult time finding ones I like recently that I usually just end up reading the same ones over and over again.
I also haven't ever read Sherrilyn Kenyon before. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by both discovering another supernatural story and a new author that I'm going to have to read more of.
I did have some slight concern over the fact that Deadmen Walking takes place in a universe already well-established by Ms. Kenyon. I was fearful that I'd be confused or not be able to follow along. But, I was able to jump right in and instead of being overwhelmed, I now just want to discover the rest of this universe along with all the other fans!
In the beginning of the story I was pretty sure I knew what was going to happen or who the main characters would be. Aaaaaand then I was wrong.
While all the characters are an integral part of the story; the actual main love interests in this story are so much deeper and more complex than I could have asked for and I loved it! The surprise made me believe Ms. Kenyon could deliver the unexpected. And throughout the whole story, she did.

There are pirates, mythology, angels, demons, and so much more! If those sound even remotely interesting to you, pick. up. this. book. Because those are all just the icing on the cake. There's romance, action, and an inspiring group of characters that I am excited to read more about!

  1. What a cool cover! I like it a lot, especially the colors. I've (surprisingly) not read anything by Kenyon. Some day, hopefully!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Christine. =)
