TO TAKE BACK LIFE, ONE MUST FIRST FACE DEATH...One man stripped of his freedom, his morals... his life.Conditioned in captivity to maim, to kill and to slaughter, prisoner 818 becomes an unremorseful, unrivaled and unstoppable fighter in the ring. Violence is all he knows. Death and brutality are the masters of his fate.After years of incarceration in an underground hell, only one thought occupies his mind: revenge... bloody, slow and violent revenge.Revenge on the man who lied.Revenge on the man who wronged him.Revenge on the man who condemned him and turned him into... this: a rage-fueled killing machine. A monster void of humanity; a monster filled with hate.And no one will stand in the way of getting what he wants. *****One woman stripped of her freedom, her morals... her life.Kisa Volkova is the only daughter of Kirill 'The Silencer' Volkov, head of the infamous 'Red' bosses of New York's Russian Bratva. Her life is protected. In reality, it's a virtual prison. Her father's savage treatment of his rivals and his lucrative and coveted underground gambling ring-The Dungeon-ensures too many enemies lurk at their door. She dreams to be set free.Kisa has known only cruelty and loss in her short life. As manager of her father's death match enterprise, only grief and pain fill her days. Her mafiya boss father, in her world, rules absolute. And her fiancé, Alik Durov, is no better: The Dungeon's five-time champion, a stone-cold killer, the treasured son of her father's best friend, and her very own-and much resented-personal guard. Unrivaled in both strength and social standing, Alik controls every facet of Kisa's life, dominates her every move; keeps her subdued and dead inside... then one night changes everything. While working for her church-the only reprieve in her constant surveillance-Kisa stumbles across a tattooed, scarred, but stunningly beautiful homeless man on the streets. Something about him stirs feelings deep within her; familiar yet impossibly forbidden desires. He doesn't talk. Doesn't communicate with anyone. He's a man beyond saving, and a man she must quickly forget... for both their sakes. But when days later, out of the blue and to her complete surprise, he's announced as the replacement fighter in The Dungeon, Kisa knows she's in a whole lot of trouble. He's built, ripped and lethally unforgiving to his opponents, leaving fear in his wake and the look of death in his eyes. Kisa becomes obsessed with him. Yearns for him. Craves his touch. Needs to possess this mysterious man... ... this man they call Raze.Dark Contemporary Romance.Contains explicit and non-consensual sexual situations, excessive violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and mature topics.Recommended for age 18 years and up*… (més)

* 4.5 stars * I always love a dark, erotic read and this one did not fail. It was an emotional journey, not a lot of surprises but still a lot of feeling and passion. The connection between Raze and Kisa was undeniable. ( )

This book will give you
an adrenaline surge from
all of the violence.

[(Rating flopped between 2 and 3 stars while reading) I had to write a review in the form of a haiku for a reading challenge. Haiku is suppose to be 3 lines 5, 7, 5 syllables. I think I did it. If not, I tried.] ( )

Wow! Gritty, grueling and grim this story is one of endurance and a will to live through unimaginable conditions. Raze is indomitable and amazing. Falsely accused, taken from a life of privilege, forced to kill to survive and finally free and able to get revenge he begins to remember…and part of his memories include Kisa.

Kisa is a “princess” of the Bratva. Supposedly pampered and privileged she has suffered since the day the love of her life and her brother were both ripped away from her. The man that steps in, Alik, is a psychotic, perverted, killer and he has claimed her – for better or worse – mostly worse. She, too, has endured more than most and is a survivor.

This is a book of survival, romance, love, family and much much more. I read Reap, book two in the series, before this one but it did not matter. Both are superb books and though dark definitely worth reading.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the copy of this book to read and review. ( )

**** I received an arc in exchange for an honest review ****

I absolutely love Tillie Cole's writing and this book was no disappointment.

What we have here is a deeply captivating, dark read, that pulls you in right from the start.

This book is written in a way that you can actually believe that these types of things happen in today's society.

818 is a boy that was ripped from his life and family in the most horrific way, betrayed by people that he thought as family and blamed for a despicable act.

We follow him throughout his years that I think that will haunt anyone that reads this book, I mean could these things really happen?? It's a question that I do find myself asking.

Kisa is another soul that is trapped within a devastating situation, and one that she feels that she is unable to escape as she finds it is within her duty after losing someone that she felt was her other half.

We follow these two in the hope that they find each other and get the HEA that they both deserve.

Tillie has written such a beautiful read and from page one you will be lost within the words of this book. I cannot wait to see what Tillie comes up with next.

If you don't like dark reads that contains explicit and non-consensual sexual situations, excessive violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and mature topics. This is not the book for you.
