The breathtaking finale to the USA Today bestselling Cartel trilogy.
I should have known it would always come down to this, from the very moment I laid eyes on him in that motel.
I should have known his salvation was too good to be true.
Because it's all gone now, the impossible, secret love I had for him bleeding away in the darkness that came afterwards.
Now there's only hate.
Now I just want to escape.
Even if it means I have to kill him to be free.
Before the Gypsy Brothers series there was the Cartel - from USA Today bestselling author Lili St Germain.
“Dornan would never be able to run from the thing he came from. The thing that created him. The darkness didn’t just exist within him. He was the fucking darkness.”
This series is a page turner. Sometimes it felt rushed and others it was good. Mariana, Dornan and John have a brutal story here and it all leads up to the beginning of the Gypsy Brother books. This one is very angsty and raw and sometimes heartbreaking.
Dornan is not a nice guy, I think everyone gets that. His evolution into the darkness was my favorite part of these books. I’m the anti hero lover what can I say. John was not meant for this life and I did like him but he wasn’t the thing that kept me reading. As far as Mariana goes, she got better as the series went. I did not like her in the beginning but she did get better.
I don’t feel this is going to be one of my favorite MC series but I really enjoyed the books and I’m glad I read them.
