When Dark-Hunters turn bad, there is one being that Acheron trusts to dispense justice—Alexion, a Shade who can only exist on the human plane for short periods of time. He has little sympathy or empathy for the rogue Dark-Hunters, until it looks like his childhood friend Kyros is about to fall to the dark side.

Dark-Huntress Danger St. Richard doesn't want to believe the tales, but when she finds Acheron's "assassin" in her house, it gives her qualms. She quickly senses that Alexion is telling the truth, but that leaves them with a very large problem—evil god Stryker has set a plan in motion that doesn't bode well for them.

Repercussions from previous books echo in each new chapter of this awesome series. Some longstanding questions are answered, while others are posed. Like a fine wine, this series just keeps getting better with age. (Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
