#1 New York Times bestseller Sherrilyn Kenyon brings us the latest adventure in the Deadman's Cross saga with At Death's Door, an epic pirate fantasy perfect for her millions of Dark-Hunter fans
Welcome to the latest Deadmen’s Quest...
Valynda Moore was born cursed. So when she dies as the result of a spell gone wrong and is trapped in the body of a voodoo doll, she expects nothing else from her messed up life. Until Thorn, leader of the Hellchasers, offers her a chance at redemption and a new life.
But nothing has ever gone her way, for the Malachai, the very beast she and her crew of Deadmen have sworn to keep locked away, has risen. And this time he’s taken prisoners. Valynda must keep her wits about her or be denied her salvation and forced to watch as the entire world falls into the hands of absolute evil.
It’s a demon-eat-demon world where the stakes have never been higher and either redemption or the ultimate betrayal waits for her at Death’s Door.
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
Overfilled with piratical melodrama and plot twists galore, the final romantic historical fantasy in Kenyon's Deadman's Cross trilogy (after Death Doesn't Bargain) is an over-the-top adventure. As a member of the Deadmen, a crew of reanimated pirates sworn to fight demons, Valynda has never fit in, cursed as she is into the body of a doll made of straw. Throughout Valynda's tenure aboard the Sea Witch II, the only person to make her feel whole has been Nibo, a powerful Voodoo spirit. When one of the demons known as the Malachai reveals to Valynda that Nibo betrayed her, she no longer knows who to trust. As the Deadmen prepare for battle and Valynda works to break the curse and regain her human form, she struggles to untangle her romantic feelings for Nibo. But the focus on their overdramatic love story comes at the expense of the action, and the cast of supporting characters is so vast and their shifting loyalties so convoluted that even returning readers will find it difficult to keep track of everything. This bloated series finale suffers for attempting to do too much.
