From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, comes the final book in the Eagle Elite Series and the first new book in the Elite Bratva Brotherhood...
With blood on my hands, I held her. With death in my soul, I took from her. With the devil in my heart, I coveted her.
There're many definitions of Hell. My list was exhaustive, my definitions tragic. Tonight I was adding something new to the very top. Girl number six thirty-two.
She arrived on my birthday, the same day, every year, I play Russian Roullete and pull the trigger. She was my omen. My end game. She made it personal. And for the first time in my life, I gave in. A virgin mob boss with no soul.
My name is Andrei Petrov. They call me the devil. All I want is for the pain to end. All she wants is for me to share it.
I am the last remaining heir to a dynasty that should burn in Hell. And my last wish remains for it to die with me.

“I’d fallen for the beast. I’d fallen for the darkness. Preferred it to the light. I’d fallen for the devil himself.”
You know what sucks sometimes? Adulting. It has kept me from this book when it hit my kindle. I have been anticipating this book since I knew it was about Andrei. The man weaved his way into my heart the minute I met him, and he hasn’t left yet. Second, only to Chase, he is one of my favorites from the EE series.
“The first time in a decade. I showed my tell. To a woman whose name I refused to know. To a woman, I would sell. To a woman who was already dead. She didn’t see it, how could she? But I felt it, spread like a cold dread throughout my body. For one brief second, hardly noticeable to the human eye, I let the darkness fall. And I, Andrei Petrov. Hoped.”
The dynamic between Andrei and the rest of the bosses was probably my favorite thing about this book. He had this way with them that made his relationship with them seamless. I especially love his relationship with Phoenix was my favorite though. Two men who had the world against them rising up and taking their rightful place in this world – there’s a reason I love them. Chase still holds my heart though. The thing he does at the end, that thing that reminded me why he is my favorite, I fell even more then. Oh and I am so happy to see Nikolai in this book, I love that guy.
“You can kiss me now.”
“I wasn’t waiting for permission,” I growled.
“Then what were you waiting for?”
“My heart stopped beating; I was waiting for it to catch up.”
Alice gained so much of my respect throughout this book. She was so strong, so brave, and the Queen that Andrei needs at his side. The rest of the wives had the same kind of strength that Alice did. This is why the woman in this series are always the ones that I love the most. I love it when the heroine can stand toe to toe with the hero and is never less than. She never needs rescued and often does the rescuing herself.
“It’s a term of endearment,” I panted. “Like sweetheart, honey, my love…” She stilled. “You called me that the second day you knew me.” “No.” I corrected. “I called you that the minute they brought you in. I just didn’t say it out loud.”
Very few series get better with each book, and very few get 5 stars for every book from me. There is only one I can name off the top of my head that has as many books as this one does and still holds my attention.
Rachel, I was worried about the book that would follow Eulogy. I still say that is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I didn’t think a book would have a fair shot after I read that one. I’m happy to say that you had me worried for nothing. This was outstanding and just flat-out amazing. You keep raising the bar and exceeding it every time.
“Monster,” I corrected. “Each and every one of them are monsters in their own right. But I’d rather sleep with the monster, hold his heart close and keep it safe, than take my chances with the man.”
