Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Death Doesn’t Bargain by Sherrilyn Kenyon!
Deadmen Walking by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: Deadman’s Cross #2 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: May 8th 2018
Death Doesn’t Bargain is the second historical fantasy title in New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Deadman’s Cross series. Where Deadmen tell their tales, and every soul is damned or redeemed by the final choices they make.
The Deadmen are back…
But so are the demons who have broken free of their eternal prison and are bent on mankind’s destruction. The worst of the lot is Vine, determined to claim their lives for taking hers. She will see the world burn…and has the perfect lure to destroy them all. One of their own.
Kalder Dupree has never known a day of mercy. Born to the cruelest of mer-races, he sacrificed himself for his crew and is in Vine’s hands. He expects no mercy or rescue.
Yet Cameron Jack is determined to set Kalder free. As a Hellchaser, it’s her calling, and she cannot allow even a not-so-innocent to be tortured for an act of kindness that spared her damnation.
To defeat evil, it sometimes takes an even worse evil, and Cameron is willing to do whatever she must to make this right. If Vine thought she had her hands full before, she hasn’t seen anything nearly as powerful as Cameron’s resolve.

The second installment in the Deadman’s Cross series is jam-packed with action and drama. You’ll definitely need to have read the first book, Deadmen Walking, before starting this one, as it continues with Cameron Jack, Kalder Dupree, Devyl Bane, and Vine. We get to delve deeper into this historical fantasy world Sherrilyn Kenyon has created, learning more about the pirates, demons, and monsters that inhabit the seas. If you enjoyed the first Deadman’s Cross book, you’ll want to get your hands on this great sequel.
After losing Kalder, the Deadmen are determined to find and get back his soul. He’d sacrificed himself to save Cameron and her brother – and now Cameron wants to set Kalder free. They are our main couple, and their romance is just as intriguing to read as the action part of the plot. They’ve got plenty of demons in their past that they need to overcome in order to be together, and those demons don’t make it easy. We learn much more about the history of Kalder’s Myrcian heritage, with plenty of plot twists to keep the action going. There really wasn’t a dull moment in Death Doesn’t Bargain.
I’m amazed at the world SK has created with this series. Yes, there’s a lot of info dumping, but once you get into the groove of reading, you get a better understanding of the mythology behind this world. Now, I haven’t read SK’s other popular Dark-Hunter series, but fans of DH will definitely love seeing a surprise cameo of Acheron in this book. I know there is also a lot of overlap between the DW and DH series, so you’re sure to catch that if you read both series!
Pirates, magic, mythology, romance, and action – is there more you can ask for in a historical fantasy? If you’re interested in the genre, this series is definitely one to check out. I can’t say that I’ve ever read anything quite like it! The book ends in quite the cliffhanger, but I’m excited to see where SK will take us with the next installment.
