#Booktour: Deadmen Walking (Deadman's Cross Trilogy #1) by @kenyonsherrilyn #BookReview #Giveaway @JeanBookNerd

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.

I want to start out saying that this is a spin off of the Dark Hunter series. If your like me who has been hoarding those books but not reading them. Thats ok!!  However, if you have read all of that series then this one you will be happy to see none other than Thorn from Son of No One.   

The only issue I had with this one was that so much is happening and story lines are starting and ending that I had a little bit of trouble following everything.  I ended up going back and starting over once just so that I could get a good hold on who was who. There are a lot of characters in this book.

This was a high seas adventure that I couldn't put down. I loved it so much as I said above I went back when I was around page 100 and started the book again.  You do NOT have to be caught up with the Dark Hunter series to read this one. Although you will miss parts of the yummy characters and connections. I guess it also connects to another series she has done under the name Kinley MacGregor called Sea Wolves as well as the Hellchasers series which is tied into the Dark Hunter series. 

For this one I loved the start it made me think of Pirates of the Caribbean.  I loved all the magic and action.  Kenyon has a way with words that just pulls you into the story along with the characters in rich new ways.  If you start one of her books you won't be able to put it down until your done. And that is what happened with me with this one.  

The characters although sometimes hard to keep track of were amazing!! I loved Cameron and her strength to find her brother no matter what.  I loved how she grew though the story. This book has so much going for it that I just couldn't put it down. I loved being introduced to new to me characters and now I really want to read the Sea Wolves series as well as get back into the Dark Hunter series so I can see all the connections in this one.  I love it when stories connect with each other.  

If you are a Kenyon fan or new to her reader. I suggest you pick this one up now! It won't do you wrong and I think we could all use a little pirate in our reading.
