Originally included in the Dark-Hunter Collectible Booklet and Dark Hunter Companion.
This is the short story that was given away with Unleash the Night about Acheron and his brother Styxx.
It can be found in Acheron and Dark Bites.
You can also find it for free in its entirety on the author’s website clicking “Read Book Excerpt”.
Second Chances is an Acheron and Styxx short story. With this novella you get a more nuanced picture of Styxx’s, and of course Acheron’s personality.
It is only ten pages, but really nice and emotional. I can’t wait to read Styxx’s novel coming in September.
The identical twin brother of Acheron, Styxx was born to wealth and power, as the Prince and heir to Didymos. During their mortal lives, Styxx believed himself to be the older brother until Ryssa told him the truth. Because of Acheron’s life choices and refusal to listen to Styxx’s warnings, he was humiliated to be related to Acheron. The fact that they were identical in looks made it all the worse for him, and he was mocked throughout his life for it. Because of his own isolation brought on by being Acheron’s twin, he hated Acheron with a passion. (Source.)
