Genre: Adult Historical Fantasy Paranormal Romance Series: Deadman's Cross, #1 Publish Date: May 9, 2017 Publisher: Tor Books Synopsis:
Hell On Earth
When the Chthonians brought the primal gods to a truce at the end of their great war, part of the pact they forged was that the worst of the evil the gods had unleashed against each other and mankind would be forever banished.
But forever is a long time. And nothing can contain those determined to find a way back.
To catch evil, it takes evil . . .
While Thorn is able to contain the demons unleashed on the ground, the ones who prey on the innocent sailors and sea faring travelers are beyond his reach.
For the sake of humanity, he makes a shaky alliance with an old foe, Marcelina. In the form of the ship they sail upon, she assembles a team under the command of Captain Devlyn Nathaniel Bane, one of the most notorious and bloodthirsty pirates to ever sail the high seas.
Damned and murdered by his own, Bane is out for revenge. With his own secret agenda, he agrees to take charge of the motley crew of pirates and brigands, and to protect the seas from the preternatural terrors that seek to devour every unwary soul they can take.
Theirs is a sacred and deadly task, as they are hunted by their prey and human authorities alike. If they fail, the world will fall to the ancient gods of chaos, and anarchy will reign. Most of all, the Southern gate, where the greatest, most powerful darkness is imprisoned, will be opened and there will be no stopping it.
It’s yo ho ho and a bottle of high seas stakes where the souls of all humanity are the ultimate prize and bargaining chip.

Well, what can I say?!? Just this... Wow! This is the first of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books that I have read. And... I just loved it! Filled with dramatic and vivid imagery, Deadmen Walking took me on an adventure across the seas! I am not familiar with her previous books, but this new series has some crossover ties with her other series...from what has been mentioned. Well, I guess, I will have to read those books, too. Well, not because I have to, but because I really got wrapped up in this one!
Sherrilyn Kenyon's writing flows and projects another world to her readers. Her words are engrossing and passionate, especially in describing her characters and their personalities. Not only that, her world building is astounding and realistic! Whoa! The flow of the story took me away onto their journey with them! Seriously! It was very difficult to put the book down! How did I not pick up her books sooner! <sigh>
She took various fantasy lore, mythology, and history, and wrapped it around a subtle romance that took my breath away! With a little action, adventure, and drama, I got to "sail away" with these characters. Her words are so alive with excitement that it was not difficult to drag me in to Devyl and Mara's story. Yes! This is their tumultuous romance...haha! How could I not get wrapped up in their emotional and dangerous journey!
Anyways, as with any first book in a series, Deadmen Walking gives readers an introduction to the characters and world they must protect. There is a lot of mystery that revolves around these characters, and as the story progresses, character histories and secrets are told... And a whole other world is shared among the world of the human realm.
Deadmen Walking is an adventurous, dark historical fantasy that is filled with engaging characters and a wondrous fantasy world that will take your breath away!
