That's What HE Said Thursday

That’s What HE Said Thursday #6 – 6th August 2015


That’s What HE Said Thursday is a weekly book meme as hosted by Chapter BreakEvery Thursday post a favourite line from your book boyfriend to his heroine.  A piece of dialogue direct from a book and not a description of the male in question.

For this weeks That’s What HE Said Thursday I’m taking a quote from a character that means a lot to me and to thousands of other people.  I remember picking up the first book Fantasy Lover when I was 16 – fresh off the press on release day in what was then Ottakars book shop. I owe a lot of my book purchases to Ottakars, they’re so much better than Waterstones and the Barnes and Nobles here are so far and few between it’s hard to find a nice one.

The idea of Fantasy Lover was great and I ended up buying the rest of the series each year it was released, I had a standing pre-order for each book. Now throughout the course of the series we met a character who was one of the most unobtainable characters I’ve ever read but I still fell head over heels in love with him. He was the forbidden fruit and I just couldn’t get enough of him.

The series is currently 42 books strong and still going and helped me out through some pretty dark times and for that I will be forever grateful.  I was lucky enough to meet Sherrilyn a few years ago when she came to England for a signing in a little independent book store near Shaftesbury Avenue  – myself and my mum met her husband and her two sons also and they’re all fantastic people.

Us Menyons waited at least 6 years from the release of the first novel to the one I’m taking my quote from.  In 2008, Sherrilyn Kenyon finally released Acheron.

The quote I will be taking is not between Acheron and his lady- although technically, she is or at least was his lady – it is between Acheron “Ash” Parthenopaeus and Artemis, the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and his boss among other things.

Acheron (Dark-Hunter, #12)

“People destroy beauty when they find it.” – Acheron
“How so?” – Artemis
“By nature, people are petty and jealous. They envy what they lack and because they don’t know how to acquire something, they try to destroy anyone who has it. Beauty is one of those things they hate most in others.” – Acheron
