#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.

As a result of a spell gone wrong, Valynda Moore died and became trapped in the body of a voodoo doll. She expected nothing else from her messed up life, until Thorn, leader of the Hellchasers, offers her chance at redemption and a new life. She and crew of Deadmen have sworn to keep the beast locked away, but the Malachai has risen and this time he’s taking not prisoners. 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. The final Deadmen’s Quest is an exhilarating, entertaining and adventurous read with a smorgasbord of wonderful, strong, charismatic characters that not only enthrall you with their story, they make readers feel as if they are taking part. The story has a forbidden romance that been happening for quite some time between Nibo (Death) and Vala, the chemistry between them is undeniable electrical but this romance has some major obstacles and emotional distress that will have to be conquered before they can reach for an HEA. The plot is fast paced and never has a dull moment as one exciting event takes place after another from learning about the beginning of Nibo and Vala’s love to a major battle with the Malachai. For the most the story takes place on a ship that has a delightful variety of crew members and lots of witty dialogue that really makes the story pop and readers can’t help but become caught up in this epic, energetic and sometimes deadly adventure.

This is Valynda’s and Xuri’s story. Valynda was tortured, betrayed and murdered only to be resurrected as a doll by Thorn. He transforms her into a walking, talking voodoo like being. She may be made of straw, but she remembers everything and feels even more. With her new body she joins the Sea Witch, a ship with a mission to return demons to the hell they came from. When captured by Malachai, she is offered a chance at a real life with a real body if she would just betray those she has found as friends. Xuri was Valynda’s first and only love. When he comes back into her life, she must decide whether she can live as a straw doll and her friends and Xuri or a chance at a real life in a world running on pure chaos. I am really enjoying this spin off from the Dark Hunters. Kenyon is a queen of paranormal fiction writing, developing characters that entice the reader to join the fictional world she masterfully creates. I love delving into one of Kenyon's books and At Death's Door was a fabulous addition to the Deadman's Cross world. I received this ARC copy of At Death's Door from Tor Books - Macmillan. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Valynda Moore has been burned by the man she loves so bad her now straw heart wants nothing but some mean vengence. But when you seek revenge on the loa of the dead, it might not go as planned. Especially when he's your true love and his family, among other dieties, are in the game. Sherrilyn Kenyon has never let me down with her Dark-hunters and now I have fallen in love with the Deadmen Walking Crew. She blends legend with real time fiction so well you'll question if she has a direct line to the Gods and Goddesses themselves. At Deaths Door is a wonderful addition to the series, so kick back with a glass of rum and see where the ship takes you. Thank you NetGalley for the chance to read and give an honest review.

Another fabulous read from The deadman's cross series!!! I adore this series and it's amazing characters so much!!! This is Xuri and Valynda's story and it was a awesome page turning read with plenty of action,passion and emotional moments as well.The gods and villians are plenty and still going out of their way to make everyone's life hell. The deadmen are fighting baddies left and right , with Adarian Malachai in the lead !! All valynda wants is to be human again and to get revenge for xuri's betrayal ,but their is more to the story and xuri won't stop til valynda knows the whole truth. Their was a lot going on in this book and some old favorites stopped by like ash,savitar,thorn,Hades and my girl the simi!!! Love her and her barbeque sauce!!! And some new character's from the mysterious and powerful goddess Circe who is the captain of a ship of forsaken and damned women. Will valaynda make a bargain with this powerful goddess or Will she help Adarian destroy the world and xuri along with it.!! So intense!!! And their also be Dragons!!!! Yes I said Dragons!!! Not just any dragons either but hot,sexy warrior sea dragons and I'm very interested in both Nazar and his brother Karawan !! They sound delish!. Captain bane and the crew of the deadmen are back with one hell of a adventure,so sit back get comfy and enjoy the ride I know I did!! Until next time luv's

The deadman’s crew of the Sea Witch hunted Demons to return them to Hell. Valynda is a member of the crew and the Malachai has risen. A beast that offers her the gift of life again if she betrays her first love Zuri. She gets further offers to be human again and not trapped in a voodoo doll but will it be a step too far to allow her hurt and rage to influence her decision. There are plenty of demons and fights to keep the story moving with travel between different realms to entertain. If this is your first deadmen book it would be worth looking at previous ones to connect with characters from this story. I was given an ARC of this book by Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s AT DEATH'S DOOR (Deadman's Cross #3) is a pirate fantasy set in her Dark-Hunter world. In this story, Valynda Moore is trapped in the body of a voodoo doll. Along with the crew of Deadmen, she is tasked with fighting demons and locking the Malachai away. Meanwhile, Nibo is trying to win back Valynda’s affection. AT DEATH'S DOOR is an entertaining and exciting read. At times, this series reminds me of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. They both have a lot of humor and action. Sherrilyn Kenyon does a great job with her plot and character development. Nibo and Valynda have considerable chemistry. There were interesting twists in the novel. I like that Sherrilyn Kenyon includes characters from her other series. Especially, Acheron (Dark-Hunter) who is one of my favorites. I appreciated that at the end of the story it explained how the Dark-Hunters, Were-Hunters, and Hellchasers end up headquartered in New Orleans. I recommend this story to Dark-Hunter fans and people who enjoy pirate fantasies. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Valynda was abused, tortured, betrayed and murdered but thanks to Thorn she has been resurrected although without a body of her own she’s transformed into a walking, talking Poppet ! Yes Vala has a body of straw and whilst her heart might not beat that doesn’t mean she doesn’t feel or remember and as a member of the crew of the Sea Witch it’s her mission to return Demons to hell. Trouble is she’s a captive of the Malachai who wants to unleash chaos and he has a bargain for Vala that could see her returning to human form. Does she betray those she’s grown to care about or can her first and only love Xuri convince her that no matter what she’s seen or heard he really would risk the wrath of multiple Gods to save her ? As a fan of this authors Dark Hunter series this spinoff is a must read for me and I’m really enjoying the different religious slant here. Previously it’s been Greek, Sumerian and Native American myths that have coloured the background but with these books and their pirate lore it allows the author to explore the Voodoo angle. I liked Xuri the Loa as he’s full of surprises and his magic whilst not limitless was very entertaining and full of surprises. Sadly I found Vala to be irritating as she constantly changed her mind about Xuri and how she felt about his actions. Of course it was a joy to read the scenes that included Thorn, Jaden, Savitar and of course the glory that is Acheron ! The dialogue just made me smile so much and it was fabulous imagining them amongst this world of piracy and witchcraft. Plus there are exciting scenes with unexpected monsters that I enjoyed reading. Sadly I did not enjoy this couples romance quite as much as previous stories so sadly that does affect my rating of this book but I would still recommend this series although I do think the reader gets more out of it if it’s read in order. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
