If you’re looking for a traditional mafia book, this is not it. Although there are elements of a mafiya, it is more of a backdrop in this story. I find this story to read more like a dark romance. It is 𝒕𝒉𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒔𝒍𝒚 𝒅𝒂𝒓𝒌 and 𝒎𝒆𝒓𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒍𝒚 𝒃𝒓𝒖𝒕𝒂𝒍, these are the types of things in a story that my little black heart rejoices amongst.
The thing that I admire and appreciate about Lana Sky is that she has an aptitude to cultivate a story that is alluring and she writes without trepidation. She brings you the story barring any reservation. Her characters are always powerful and reinforce the plot foundation of her stories.
Mischa Stepanov is a cruel, impetuous monster that is driven by revenge in a blood feud that originated 24 years ago by Ellen’s family. He captures Ellen thinking she is her half sister, and because of her family’s transgressions he tortures her regardless that she is not the prima princess Briar Winthrop. Misha seeks to ruin Ellen with pain, brutality and bloodthirstiness.
Ellen Winthrop is marked as the fifteenth martyr in the blood feud. You empathize with Ellen Winthrop. She is downtrodden, but she has a strength within her that burns through and allows her to endure the castigations and cruelty she receives from both her husband as well as her captor. She petitions Misha to show mercy, but her fate is beyond any compassion he can offer.
There are secrets aplenty that will have your mind whirling with all sorts of possibilities, twists and turns that will have you unsure of the direction the story is heading and a cliff that will have you hanging by your fingernails.
