Her Personal Life Drama Bleed All Over This Book

At Death's Door (Deadman's Cross #3) - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Val was betrayed, tortured and turned into something else that was not how she was made. She lost her love, her life, her body, her trust and her soul. What else could the Gods take from her ? Not much so they give her something precious back and then bargain/blackmail her to let her keep a touch of what she wants. It's not a good bargain, it's a dark one feed on hate, lies and revenge. Finding the truth and fighting for her heart will make or break her. I love this series of haunted pirates and demons. It's got all the elements I love in a book, adventure, blood, tears, strong women, magic, Acheron and other hot men. Sigh~ Acheron <3. Unfortunately, this one was not my favorite of the series but still an entertaining read and a worthy adventure for these characters I've grown to love in this author's series (Dark Hunters, Dream Hunters and this one) one world three groups. I enjoyed the outside characters more than I did the main characters of this story. This one had a personal feel to it that was distracting me from the enjoyment of the story. There is a horrible long death written into the book, that relates to something in real life for the author. I just couldn't break away from thinking about it and her pain. Then POV's and timelines kept changing and it was hard for me to catch on to what time or pov had it switched to. It was so confusing, I had to backtrack too many times, and still it was a struggle to figure out what was what. Val, was such a waffler. I love him, I hate him, I will hurt him, I'd never hurt him. She would sitch back almost in the same breath, and she did it so much. Lastly the info dumping at the beginning was overwhelming. The first 35% was filled with names history, acts, times, it was almost enough to make me quit the book. Will I continue the series in this world, yes ! I know these people and can't wait to see where they end up. I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review
