House of the Rising Son

Dark-Hunter Series - Book 40

Short Story in Dark Bites Anthology

By Sherrilyn Kenyon

St. Martin's - February 2014

This short story is strongly tied to the novel Styxx. Although it is set prior to Styxx, it was released second, and includes a back story. If you wish to read the stories in order, it is recommended to not read this review until after reading Styxx because there are spoilers.

She was Bathymaas. A goddess with no emotions. She was to be justice only.

He was Aricles. A farmer who did not want to go to war, but followed the call of a goddess.

Theirs is a love fated not to be.

In Styxx, readers learn about Aricles and Bathymaas, but their love story is all the more poignant to see it unfold. House of the Rising Son was everything it was expected to be – filled with joy, passion, adventure, betrayal, and tragedy. This is a perfect addition for fans of Styxx.

Dark Bites Anthology is a collection of short stories by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It includes a variety of genre including romance and non-romance. Most stories are set in her Dark Hunter world, but some are not. Most were previously issued, but not all.
