As an ancient Sumerian god, Sin was one of the most powerful among his pantheon... Until the night Artemis brutally stole his godhood and left him for dead. For millennia, this ex-god turned Dark-Hunter has dreamed only of regaining his powers and seeking revenge on Artemis. If only life were that simple.
Unfortunately he has bigger fish - or in Sin's case - demons, to fry. The lethal gallu that were buried by his pantheon are now stirring and they are hungry for human flesh. Their goal is to destroy mankind and anyone else who gets in their way. Sin is the only one who can stop them - that is if a certain woman doesn't kill him first. Unfortunately, Sin discovers that now he must rely on her or witness an annihilation of biblical proportions.
Enemies have always made strange bedfellows, but never more so than when the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Now a man who knows only betrayal must trust the one person most likely to hand him to the demons. Artemis may have stolen his godhood, but this one has stolen his heart. The only question is will she keep it or feed it to the ones who want him dead?
"You know the incredible thing about hearts is their unbelievable capacity for forgiveness. You’d be amazed what people will overlook when they love someone. (Acheron)"
"- Any game plan? - Xypher asked Sin.
- Don't die.
- I like it. Simple, bold. Impossible. Works for me.
Kat scoffed at his sarcasm.
- What are you bitching about, Xypher? You're already dead.
- You know, for once, it's good to be me."
"- You are incredibly wise. (Kat)
- Only when it comes to other people. It’s easy to see how to fix their lives. It’s much harder to see the cracks in your own house. (Acheron)"
"- My father is the harbinger of death and destruction. My grandmother the Great Destroyer. My mother is the goddess of the hunt. I think I’ll be okay. (Kat)
- Yeah, you do have the history of absolute terror and cruelty in your veins. (Sin)
- Remember that if you ever come between me and my chocolate bar. (Kat)"
"It's not fair to show someone the sun and then banish him from it. Even the devil may cry when he looks around Hell and realizes that he's there alone. (Acheron)"
