4/5 Review: House of the Rising Sun by Sherrilyn Kenyon




The eldest son in a family of three boys, Aricles had no desire to be a soldier, even though his fighting skills were among the best in the world. He was more than content on his small Atlantean farm, living a quiet, uneventful life. But when his brother is determined to don a soldier’s uniform, Aricles joins him with a promise to their father to bring his brother home in one piece. What he never counts on is how much their new lives will forever change them, or what the risk of a forbidden love will ultimately cost him.

I haven’t read Styxx  and I was glad I hadn't  since House of The Rising Son is a prequel to Styxx.This story lays the ground work for Styxx's romance, so if you haven't read Styxx yet, read this first. If you have read Styxx,read it again after reading House of the Rising Sun, you will have a brand new love for Styxx's.Sherrilyn Kenyon is one of the best selling authors out here with many of her series intertwining with one another creating a unique reading experience simply not found elsewhere.

This is the love story of the Egyptian goddess, Bathymaas, and the human farmer/warrior, Aricles. I absolutely LOVE this story. Aricles’s chivalry and chaste love for his goddess totally made me smile. It is a beautiful love story that ends in tragedy and completely broke my heart in the process.Bathymaas and Aricles’s story is not over, it is continued in Styxx. If you have an open mind you will be hooked you with ‘House of the Rising Son’, and if not already a fan you will be. I hope you have some vacation time saved up. Kenyon’s character and world building is unique and vividly draws the reader into the stories. I can definitely recommend this book to any reader who enjoys paranormal books.
