As an archaeologist, Dr. Soteria (Tory) Kafieri wants nothing more that to redeem her father's name and prove that his beliefs of Atlantis were factual. Knowing that this time she is on the right track, she tries to show the world the true Atlantis for the first time. With the diary of Ryssa in her hands little does she know that the words on the pages hold the past that Acheron fears will be reveled. If his weaknesses are displayed for all to examine, his death could be the falling of the world as we know it. As the words speak the forbidden truth, Tory learns the man before her is not what she speculated. For the first time she witnesses the genuine Acheron hidden from the world. Behind the thick black armor is a soul of kindness and mercy, worthy only of ultimate respect. Now Tory must make the definitive choice. The answers to the road ahead are held in the palms of her hands. All of her life she has fought for the moment to prove her father accurate and exhibit the discovery of Atlantis. All of her life she has waited for a man that could unlock her heart and sate it with the discovery of pure love and affection. Closing her eyes, Tory apprehends and perceives the answer that no matter what she decides, her heart will be broken.
My rating: 5 BIG STARS!
This is the first time I have ever added a personal note to one of my reviews. When I sat down to write about this story, I really had trouble. No words seem to fit the depth of feelings and emotions that come from reading about this character. First starting the Dark Hunter series, Immortal Hellion convinced me that I should go in order. It was hard at times, but now I am glad that I took her advise. By the time I got to Acheron, there was just enough background that my mind was begging for more. So many unanswered questions, so many dark and shadowed points, that can drive a person to insanity if the truth isn't revealed. Without a doubt, this is by far one of the best characters I have ever read about.
