Rating : 5 Stars
Raised as a prototype for the Georgian Bratva’s obedience drug, 221 fails to think, act, or live for himself; he’s his master’s perfectly-crafted killing puppet. Standing at six-foot-six, weighing two-hundred-and-fifty pounds, and unrivaled in to-the-death combat, 221 successfully secures business for the Georgian Mafiya Boss of NYC, who rules the dark world of the criminal underground. Until his enemies capture him.Talia Tolstaia dreams to break from the heavy clutches of Bratva life. She dreams of another life–away from the stifling leash of her Russian Bratva Boss father and from the brutality of her work at The Dungeon, her criminal family’s underground death-match enterprise. But when she stumbles upon her family’s captive who is more monster than man, she starts to see the man underneath. A powerful, beautiful, damaged man whose heart calls to hers. But sacrifices must be made–blood for blood…life for life…souls for scarred souls…
Always looking for the special read â¦ the one that touches you beyond all other reads it was sometime beginning of this year when I discovered âRazeâ by Tillie Cole.
Its plot made it highly unusual book (at least for my usual reading taste) but somehow the blurb âspokeâ to me and I had to read it.
And what can I say â¦ this book blew my mind away and since reading this book I am a fan of those âone-word/name titlesâ â (funny how all those other books make me hope to find another one like this)
So it was never a question at all when I saw a second book of the âScarred Soulsâ series pop up on my radar that I had to read that one too.
Basically this need already creates high expectations for a book and before you start guessing
â The Story lived up to ALL of them â
If it is even possible, the author became better than in the last book. Which is also the reason that I would recommend to read the books in the right order â even if it is not really necessary for the story.
Ms. Coleâs characters are deep and pure. Sometimes they might seem cold to an outsider looking in but to me it feels this is needed for them to be so pure. I always have goosebumps when thinking about the story.
If it is possible at all âReapâ creates an even darker environment than âRazeâ did and the storyline flows so easy that the reader feels the need to turn on some lights while reading to not disappear in this darkness.
I can hardly wait for the next book and believe me my expectations again are high â but I am not afraid, because this author will deliver as expected I AM SURE
