My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
These are the words that come closest to what I have just read.
The intensity is not so much the writing but the events that unfolded in this latest book from Varian Krylov. This author, I have no words to describe her writing style but do recognize that her use of the written words is such that it does not leave much to the imagination. The worse thing about this story is that the main man is an anti-hero who I cannot help but be scared of, be in awe of, and just fall in love with. This is a man I could not stand in Dangerously Happy for he was a scary enigma I would not want to meet in a dark place alone or with a gang of friends. And yet I absolutely love him.
This is a story that unfolds slowly but with such surety it was hard to put down. But I did put it down. I had to take time off and take stock of what was going on, opened a few lightly written romances to buffer me from the incredible scenes that kept developing. This is a plot that is all too real and the characters are written in such a manner that it is hard to realize they are fictional.
Why bad things?
First, it is Xavier and everyone who had met him the first time know that he is bad. And he does a lot of bad things.
Second, the whole situation of his sister and his quest to give her justice. That was just plain bad what happened and Xavier holds nothing back to get that revenge realized.
Third, Carson. Wow! I cannot reveal much but just know that his is a journey into a life that was totally unexpected and with Xavier right there with him? Whoa!
Fourth, the whole idea of human trafficking. This is an all too real subject that is scary to think about but needs to be addressed. This is a really, really bad thing.
Fifth, Xavier. It all ends and begins with this man. And his developing relationship with Carson. Their life as it unfolds in this read is such that was not only painful to read but to think about. Thing is, I recognize that this is what they both needed even if I don't like it. And that is simply what makes this work so incredible.
All the bad things happen here and yet it is impossible not to keep reading. Not to keep being scared. Not to keep going to find out the end and speculate.
Varian, you are one extraordinary writer and you scared me s****less. Yes, you really did.
But I just loved reading this, so Thank You!
