    *now, after reading it*

    Fucking kill me now. I am so done with SK and her writing.

    She literally has a whole page describing Devyl. ONE PAGE.

    Of course, let's not forget how all women and men are devastatingly beautiful and everyone would love to have a bite of them. Or the threats, the fucking threats, seems like no one can talk without threatening you first.

    I'M FREAKING EXCITED, NEW CHARACTERS + THORN + PIRATES =

    Don't misunderstand me, I love her; but she's opening so many storylines, and closes very few. At the rate we're going, I'll have grandchildren by the time the series ends.

    DEADMEN WALKING is the first installment in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Deadman’s Cross series. For Dark Hunter fans, this is an entirely new series that features new mythology. However, there is mention of Acheron and the Dark Hunters so if you’re a fan, you’ll be happy to note some cross over between the series. This is why I suggest being at least familiar with the Dark Hunters world before reading this series because the worlds do connect in some areas.

    DEADMEN WALKING is the first installment in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Deadman’s Cross series. For Dark Hunter fans, this is an entirely new series that features new mythology. However, there is mention of Acheron and the Dark Hunters so if you’re a fan, you’ll be happy to note some cross over between the series. This is why I suggest being at least familiar with the Dark Hunters world before reading this series because the worlds do connect in some areas.

    That being said, as a fan of Kenyon’s book in general, I had some very high expectations with this book and the author absolutely succeeded in delivering something refreshing to the genre. Deadman’s Cross is a mix of Pirates of the Caribbean and Kenyon’s advanced worldbuilding. There are a bunch of interesting characters, all with their own stories, that are brimming with personality. Kenyon spends a lot of the first half of the book on the worldbuilding, which is expected since this is the first book of the series. I haven’t come across mythology like this one, so I found myself glued to the pages as I read about this brand new world. Of course Kenyon would be the one to blow me away with her imagination. Her mind works in such wonderful ways.

    The romance between Devyl and Mara really develops in the second half of the novel. There, we get a lot of their backstory that is told in various ways, such as flashbacks and dialogue so we do get plenty of chances to get to know who these characters are. This is turn deepened the bond between the hero and heroine.

    I was really impressed by the way Kenyon was able to bring these two together. They have gone through a lot together and it seemed nearly impossible to see a happily-ever-after for them, but she manages to bring them together in a believable way. By the head, I was as head over heels with the romance as I was with the world.

    DEADMAN WALKING is a strong start for Sherrilyn Kenyon and the Deadman’s Cross series. With worldbuilding unlike ever before, this is a series that must be on your summer to-read list!

    Pirates, Sea Monsters, Mermen, Sprites and many more.

    Overwhelming and confusing at times, many new types of beings, powers, worlds and add a new history and you have a lot to digest. This first book in Ms. Kenyon spin off series is all about the world building and it is a complicated world as I've found her others to be. I would have loved an illustrated guide to keep the visual and background of these characters in order. The new characters were amazing, the merman/mermaid my favorite

The new characters were amazing, the merman/mermaid my favorite of all I love her design on the mythical beast. Really an illustrated guide would have been awesome.

    Thorn from her Dark Hunter series is featured in this new series, he is the lead of these Deadmen. Deadmen, pirates who sail the seas sending demon/wicked/evil back to where they should be. The Deadmen are all second chance wrongdoers looking for some form of redemption from their fate. This book focuses on one couple, the Captain and his lady. Their past combines and lashes at them until blood is drawn and death is always waiting. Yeh that's all I'm giving you.

    The book ended with a cliffhanger and my favorite character was the one hanging off the cliff but one slim finger. Now I'll be waiting forever to grab book 2 and see how they faired.

    Mini Review:

    The concept and the plot were fantastic. I loved the different sea creatures but all the different myth/religions got confusing. The explanations werent always clear and Im personally not a big fan of Alpha males. However Id still recommend it because pirates and awesome concept.

    There were so many characters, so many storylines, and it seemed like each character had a name, nickname, and secret origin name.

    The love story was disjointed and felt slapped together; like the author changed her protagonists about 1/3 of the way in. You never really felt connected to any one character, and the others were almost more interesting thank the mains. The antagonist was dry and boring, and the background of the three central (? maybe) characters were downright confusing.

    Having read most of Kenyon's books, this was surprisingly difficult to finish. I hope her tendency to keep all her storylines in her head hasn't become detrimental to her work.

    Saw this first in a new series from Sherrilyn Kenyon, set in the Dark Hunter world. Got all excited, went to buy it... $15 for the kindle version.

    Sorry.

    Not. Happening.

    When will they learn?

    Surprising and enjoyable start to a new series.
