This is the WW28 page for those new to WW28 and for those wanting to know about WW28.

Why Wicked Wednesdays? ... because on top of it being a weekly meme which happens on Wednesdays, it is also an opportunity to showcase your favourties! A shameless and wicked promotion of your favourite books, author or series!! This is also a combination of Tonya's Friday 56, a wishlist, and an avenue for you to promote the books you already have on your shelves! (Unfortunately Tonya of Storytime With Tonya and Friends no longer do Friday 56s... But we soldier on...) Here you only show what is in page 28 (theoretically). Which is hoping to hit the first chapter really. And viola! We have: WICKED WEDNESDAYS! Or in short WW28.

So, what do you do with it? You steal it!
  • First you grab our Wicked Wednesday pic.
  • Then you grab a book. Turn to page 28. Take the first sentence. And then you post it in your site with a link back to WW28.
  • Come back to Cherry Mischievous - WW28 and give us the url of your post (in a comment at a WW28 post) so that other WW28 readers can find your WW28 offering.
Theoretically, it is suppose to be a random book. But you can tweak that anyway you like :) And it is suppose to be only the first sentence of page 28... but it won't be wicked if you all follow the rules now would it? Feel free to bend the rules... So, after your "Page 28, 1st Sentence" (P28, 1S) post, you may post related thingies. I'll let you decide what "thingy" is to you. Open to interpretation people...

And why Wednesday? You ask. It is midweek, nothing happens on a Wednesday... people are usually gagging for the weekend to arrive! So.... lets make something happen on a Wednesday... makes the wait for the weekend seem a little less longer.

Amendment (02/06/2010): Righty-yo, your fine with paging numbers if your ebooks are in pdf format. Any other, and your screwed. So, my suggestion is hit Location 450 to 500 or thereabouts for your sentence.

Amendment (09/07/2011): And what would you do if your book is in audiobook format? Usually audiobooks comes in many parts, say, 9 parts. Or if bought as CD, then 9 CDs, etc. Just hit the middle of the first part. Usually your player also have a counter that looks like a bar at the bottom of the player with numbers counting how much you've listened to and how much you still have to listen to. Click the pic below to hugify and see the counter at the bottom better. If not sure, try to hit approximately at 1:30:00 of your counter. However, you can pick any line you want to present for your WW28. Remember, wickedness is encouraged here...

If you participate in WW28, place your site name and url in the MrLinky below to promote your WW28 offerings:

Sherrilyn Kenyon's Acheron

My review:
I like things to make sense and I like my stories to tie up. But this book has so many loose ends, it made me think that, one, S. Kenyon is losing her touch. Or, two, she was under too much pressure to write this book. Either way, this book did not rate very high. I would not recommend this book to a new S. Kenyon fan or anybody who has not read her work yet. It would put them off.For one, in the basketball court scene with Sunshine, where Tory commented:
"The tall blond who can't shoot hoops?"
How did Tory knew that Talon can't shoot hoops, when the description or any mention about him being unable to shoot hoops, was made after the comment.... duh...It lost me there for a second while reading that part, until I came to the "explanation" that Talon can't shoot hoops. It would have been nice to have that "explanatory line" before the comment so that the readers are not lost and the story lines make sense then. And, there isn't any snag in the flow of the story.

There are many other loose ends like that, but I won't give out spoilers. So, if you are a long time Dark Hunter fan already, borrow this book rather than buy. Not worth the money. On the positive side, it mentioned in the end, about Zarek and other Dark Hunters which went a long way into alleviating my ire.

Book info:
From the World of the Dark-Hunters comes the most anticipated book to date...Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron endured a lifetime of hatred. His human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind.Only it was never that simple...For centuries, he has fought for our survival and hidden a past he never wants revealed.Now his survival, and ours, hinges on the very woman who threatens him. Old enemies reawaken and unite to kill them both.War has never been more deadly... or more fun.
