Week 19 Review: Deadmen Walking

From Goodreads:
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.

My Review:
Reading this book was just absolutely fantastic! It's another series in this world, with these characters, and it was just like, the best book ever! Reading it was just a pleasure, and yeah, this world during the golden age of piracy? Just fascinating!

This book both deepens this world and makes so many connections, it also made things make more sense. Or maybe it just confuses them up some more. I'm not good with details, and the ones that we got, I'm not sure how to connect all of them with the world at large! There's just so much!

If you hadn't seen Sherrilyn Kenyon's website and the synopsis, you might think that this book, the romance was between Cameron Jack and Devlyn. But both the synopsis and the part of the site that says the hero and heroine say that it's Marcelina-the Sea Witch, and Devlyn. Loved reading about them!

The way things ended, well, there's some good and there's some bad. There's a cost, and the good guys are together, and yeah, the bad guys have some pretty wicked plans up their sleeves! But we learned so much!

This book was just amazing, and I can't wait for more of this series!
