0.5 in The Kiss of Death Series. Prequel novella to Kill Me.
At thirteen years old I was sold, doomed to become a sex slave.
Nicholai Ivanov, boss of the Russian Bratva, gave me the ultimate gift. He saved me from a fate worse than death. He promised to make me strong, because only the strong survive, and the weak die, forgotten and inconsequential.
I now live in a world of blood and violence, where humanity itself is a weakness. My life is not a battle of bad and good, but bad and worse. This is kill or be killed, survival of the fittest.
Make me or break me?
Make Me is a very short story with a lot of insight into the heroine. It is the prequel to Kill Me that really gives us the background of how Una became the assain that we first met.
This review is going to be hard to write because I don’t want to give anything away. I actually really enjoyed that we are getting this prequel now because I wanted to know how she ended up where she was. She most definitely had a rough childhood and she endured things that no one should have to go though. The situations that she was put in and the way that she was trained is brutal and it explains so much about the woman that we first met.
Make Me starts when Una is thirteen years old and in an orphanage. From there, she ends up with a man who ultimately earns her trust and trains her to be the freaking badass woman that she is. The ultimate warrior. There’s also a little bit of history that shows her vulnerable side and explains more on why she is stone cold with her emotions. I felt everything she was going though. I rooted for her to stay strong and become a powerful woman.
I don’t know how L.P. did it but she delivers a story that is full of not only action but emotions in such a short amount of time. Don’t let the number of pages fool you. You don’t want to miss out on this. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. I don’t think I will ever get enough.
