Death Dwellers MC Series book 2.5 - Misdeeds by Kathryn Kelly

The Synopsis and My ‘Blogging Readers Review’ after reading Novella ‘Misdeeds’ (Book #2.5):

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels/Novellas of the Death Dwellers MC Series.***

‘Misdeeds’ is the fourth novel of the ‘Death Dwellers MC Series’ by author Kathryn Kelly but it’s also a novella.  The characters continue to be very strong in the sense that you will either strongly like or dislike them. Despite the trials they deal with and the sometimes terrible ways they deal with them, you can’t help but feel that they are raw and could be real because they can be known to make both good and terrible choices at times. You will be reading this novella through about five P.O.V.’s(point of views)  but mainly from Kendall Miller and our sexy biker favorite-Johnnie ‘John-Boy’ Donovan. But we also get some P.O.V.’s from Death Dwellers MC bikers – Lucas ‘Mortician’ Banks, Matthew ‘Val’ Taylor and Louis ‘Stretch’ King.

We met Kendall Miller in the last novel, who was new to the Death Dweller MC world thanks to being thrust into the biker world by a rival leader named ‘Spoon’ of the Torpedoes MC.  With her long red-hair, long beautiful legs and tall height, she comes across as a beautiful woman in her early-thirties upon first impression. Unfortunately, after her time with her ex-boyfriend ‘Spoon’ and her personal issues, she is very mistrusting, reclusive in a way that she begins to push away any chances of possible friendship with Megan and risks her relationship with Johnnie in the process. Because of her issues, she also begins to cause friction in the Death Dwellers MC and between cousins  Christopher ‘Outlaw’ and Johnnie ‘John-Boy’.

After putting an end to one evil monster in the previous novel and now having to bury one of their own, the Death Dwellers must reboot and be ready to hunt down their sadistic enemy ‘Spoon’ and handle the unfinished business with him.  It’s personal to both Johnnie and Christopher so they can avenge the harm that occurred by the hands of ‘Spoon’, Kendall’s ex-boyfriend and bring down the Torpedoes MC in the process. It becomes a dangerous time in the middle of a war between the two motorcycle clubs, which can definitely become risky to the pregnant Old Ladies, Megan and Kendall as they struggle to find an understanding and get past their dislike for each other for the sake of their men the the club.

In this novella we get to know more about ‘Mortician’ and Bailey and their possible relationship that seems to be growing after the death of Bailey’s father, former Death Dweller MC member, K.P.  We also get to know more about Matthew ‘Val’ Taylor and his tumultuous relationship with Christopher ‘Outlaw’s’ sister, Zoann and the baby they share and love.  And last but not least we get to know Louis ‘Stretch’ King better, who is a trusted member of the Death Dwellers MC and is dealing with own dilemmas and secrets.

  The Death Dwellers MC and Kendall must deal with the deaths of people they care about and the aftermath of those ordeals and tragic losses, while dealing with the ongoing war with the Torpedoes MC and ‘Spoon’.  Secrets from the past never stop surfacing, which also seem to cause friction within the compound of the Death Dwellers MC group and  their Old Ladies.  Stuff gets heavy at times, that you don’t know if they will all make it through to the end or if they will even continue to be allies or enemies by the end of the story. All of this will definitely work towards keeping readers entertained throughout the story. Find out if Johnny and Kendall can finally find a happily ever after with each other or if heartbreak is on the brink? Can the war between the two MC’s ever come to an end or will it just bring the end to them both with destruction and mayhem? Who will be left standing and who won’t survive? Read this story to find out. In this novella expect more hot moments, heartbreak, love, fighting, and sadly, more tragedy. Just another day in the Death Dwellers MC world.  I do recommend this novella and this series because the characters are always easy to love,  easy to hate or somewhere in between. Great dynamics. Check this series and novella out. 

*

Reader Warning: The story is of the Adult  & Contemporary Romance genre. Contains strong-sexual content & strong language at times. Also mature situations, violence and abuse.  Recommended only for readers- ages 18+.

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘MISDEEDS’

Kendall’s thoughts about Mortician and Bailey:  If he went to her now, he’d be claiming her as his.  While Kendall understood the dynamics of such an action, she wanted him to ignore the stupid codes just this once.  Bailey needed him right now.

Johnnie’s thoughts:  One day, Kaleb was alive and at the clubhouse, daring anyone to fuck with Dinah and threatening to hack Mort’s dick off if he touched Bailey.  The next day, K-P was gone.  Human like everyone else, not the invincible man Johnnie had chalked him up to be.

Val’s thoughts:  Obviously, the Torps were watching them as closely as they were watching the Torps.  Those fuckers were hitting where they were most vulnerable.  Their women.

Kendall’s thoughts:  She didn’t know how to overcome her terror and shame.  She didn’t know how to overcome her love for Johnnie or how to make herself want to do anything other than stay inside and keep house.

Kendall to Johnnie:  “The other condition is I want a cut like Meggie has.  Mine will say Property of John Donovan.  That way, the world will know you own my heart.”

The Lucky Thirteen Series -book 3 - Wounded Courage by S.M. Butler

*Not Sure which Cover I prefer? Love them both! One is on Goodreads, the other is at Amazon*

The Synopsis & My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading  an ARC-Early Copy of ‘WOUNDED COURAGE (Lucky Thirteen series book #2)’:

I was thrilled to be invited to get the chance to read and review an ARC early-copy of the sequel novel in the Lucky Thirteen Series titled ‘Wounded Courage’ by author S.M. Butler.  The first novel, ‘Killing Honor’ followed the story of Brody and Devyn, while this second novel follows Addison Hardy and SEAL Eamon Murphy, which we got slightly familiar with in novel one.  You’ll be reading ‘ Wounded Courage’ through the two P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Addison and Murphy.

The international crime group, the Giroux family, took a loss in ‘Killing Honor’ but their story did not end there.  SEAL Team Thirteen were sent on a rescue mission but did not expect to rescue someone who was also in the home of Alex Giroux, the son of crime family leader, Simon Giroux.   The unexpected rescued-survivor was Addison Hardy, the twin-sister of SEAL Team Thirteen’s member, Chris Hardy.  Addison was in France for the university exchange program as far as her family knew but they had no idea that Addison had any connection to the Giroux family or that she was dating Alex Giroux.

Addison Hardy has always lived in the shadows of her family’s pride and joy twin-brother, Chris Hardy.   She took a chance and got tied with a handsome french man who unfortunately was the son of a ruthless man and a part of a criminal family.   When she is rescued by her brother, his best friend and the rest of SEAL Team Thirteen, they must find out what she was doing with that group of people.   Being held in the custody of SEAL member’s Chris Hardy and Eamon Murphy, she has to try her hardest to tell them what she can to keep from being sent to prison but not enough to risk her life.  All the while, being reunited with her long time crush, Eamon Murphy who happens to be her brother’s longtime best-friend, old feelings resurface in full force once again.

Eamon Murphy did not expect to find Addison with the Giroux family.  Seeing her reminded him of the girl who had always been off-limits to him even though he always wanted her.  But the only thing that bothered him now besides trying to keep his feelings hidden, was his question of why Addison was in the company of international criminals.  He needs to get Addison to trust him enough to tell him what her ties are with The Giroux family.  With his devotion to his duty as a Navy SEAL, he is torn between her and that duty.

Simon Giroux knows Addison is out there and he wants to get to her because of what she knows and has. His enemies are also dead-set on getting to her too, if they can.  The U.S. Government is determined to find out what Intel she can offer them and plan to keep her in custody to find out.  But Addison is undaunted and plans to keep her secrets to herself regardless of everyone seeking to know what she knows.  The growing feelings  that Eamon Murphy and Addison Hardy feel for each other are hard to ignore as their resolve breaks little by little with each day they spend near each other. Can Murphy protect Addison from everyone, including herself?  Will Addison ever trust Murphy and her brother enough to let them know her secrets?  This is a fantastic military-romance series and I do recommend it because it not only has hot-romance but also action, mystery and suspense.  Can’t wait for the next novel in this series!

★★‘WOUNDED COURAGE’ is the 2nd novel of the ‘Lucky Thirteen Series’. What else is in the series:★★

KILLING HONOR – Book #1 of the ‘Lucky Thirteen Series’ –  This Contemporary Romance novel follows the story of Navy SEAL Brody Battles upon his return home to his wife Devyn and twin daughters, while enemies lurk in the shadows, seeking revenge(To be released: March 24th, 2014) – *ARC Review Posted Above!*

WOUNDED COURAGE – Book #2 of the ‘Lucky Thirteen Series’ –  This Contemporary Romance novel follows the story of Navy SEAL Eamon Murphy and his long time best friend’s twin sister, Addison Hardy.  With the results of what occurred in ‘Killing Honor’, Addison needs protection from her ex-boyfriend’s vengeful family. (Expected release date: June 2014)

DYING COMMITMENT – Book #3 of the ‘Lucky Thirteen Series’ –  This Contemporary Romance novel follows the story of Navy SEAL Dylan Urban and Cadence Long of the NSA.  They are sent to work together on a dangerous mission, while trying not act on a growing attraction between them. (Expected release date: October 28th, 2014)

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘WOUNDED COURAGE’

Eamon Murphy’s thoughts:  I leaned back against the wall, arms crossed, watching Hardy pace the length of the observation room.  I supposed it was hard when you found your twin sister deep in the depths of an international arms dealer’s house, and not to mention, it was willingly.

Addison Hardy’s thoughts:  Simon Giroux would come for me.  He’d never stop.  Not him.  Giroux had a long memory… and he had people everywhere.  As soon as Alex’s will turned up and Giroux found out what we -I -had on him, I’d be in real trouble and not even bad-ass SEALs could keep me safe from that.

Addison Hardy’s thoughts:  I glanced at Murphy, who had always been that kid who never wanted to grow up.  But he had grown up, both physically and mentally.  The carefree boy who used to shove my face in the mud for a laugh had been restrained and replaced by a guy who apparently never smiled anymore.

Murphy and Addison: “I will not hurt you. I will protect you.”-(Murphy)
“I don’t believe you. You want to lock me away.”-(Addison)
“For your protection.”-(Murphy)
“Liar.”-(Addison)
“I would never lie to you, Addison.”-(Murphy)

Eamon Murphy’s thoughts:   She’d always been strong and in control of herself.  Her presence pulsed through the wall toward me, like a beacon, but I’d done enough to hurt her today.  She’d always been important to me but I’d never told her that and now I’d hurt her far more than I’d ever intended.

Ruined by Jus Accardo

The Synopsis for ‘Ruined’:

Hell is looking for a way to break loose…

Jax lost the genetic lottery. Descended from Cain, the world’s first murderer, he’s plagued by a curse that demands violence in exchange for his happiness. He left everything behind, including the girl he loved, but thriving on the pain of others is lonely… And it’s killing him.

After a series of heartbreaking losses, Samantha put rubber to pavement and headed for college as fast as her clunker could carry her. But she can’t outrun her problems. When an attack at school drives her back home, she’s thrown into the path of a past—and a guy—she’s been trying to forget.

Sam strains Jax’s control over his darkness, but running isn’t an option this time. Someone—or, something—followed her home from school: a ruthless monster with a twisted plan centuries in the making. Forced together to survive, and fighting an attraction that could destroy them both, Jax and Sam must stop a killer bent on revenge.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘RUINED’ (The Eternal Balance Series book #1)’:

This novel has been sitting on my ‘To Read’ list on Goodreads for a few months and now that I’ve had a minute to get to it, here goes my review on it.  ‘Ruined’ is the first novel of The Eternal Balance Series by Jus Accardo.  The story is pretty different from most stories I’ve read lately. This story involves demons, descendents of Cain and the way they are tied to the human world.  The story reads from the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views), Samantha ‘Sam Merrick and Jax Flynn.

Three years.  It had been three years since Samantha ‘Sam’ Merrick last saw her neighbor and dear friend, Jax Flynn.  She had convinced herself that he didn’t find her special enough to stick around so she eventually moved on, more or less.  He was the person who had been there for her ever since her parents funeral, who had been murdered. Threw the years her feelings for him grew and he became someone she cared for a lot.  They shared a kiss one night and the next day, he was gone.  He left with no word to her.  No letter. Nothing but the memory of him and the one kiss they had finally shared.

Humans use the phrase ‘fight the demons inside’ for many reasons but for Jax Flynn, fighting the demon inside, took on a whole new meaning.   Jax has a real demon that lives inside that sends him into a rage that at times, becomes more than he can control.  In all of his tall, broodiness and handsome looks,  Sam, his Sammy, had always been there for him as a caring friend.  And he always wanted to keep her safe.  His twin brother, Chase Flynn on the other hand, he loved but the demon in him hated Chase completely.  For years, Jax fought hard to control the urge to kill and horrible images that the demon provided him.  The demon wanted to gruesomely murder his twin brother Chase and use Jax’s body as the catalyst to make it happen.  So, Jax made a hard decision.

Jax Flynn returns to the hometown where everyone saw him as a bad person and a trouble maker, and his twin brother Chase, they saw as the golden boy.  He returned when he got the news that his Uncle Rick had become terminally ill and may not last much longer.  As soon as he returns, events occur and the truth he always believed in begins to unravel.  Sam seems to have someone out to cause mayhem in her life and Jax has a demon set on making him feed him what he needs the most.  Now that Sam and Jax have reunited, can they ever be together finally or are they destined to never get that kind of chance?  Who is out to harm Sam?  And can Jax stop fate from happening, and stop hell on earth from occurring? 

I do recommend this story because it is entertaining and readers will find it hard to know where the fine line of good and evil, ends and begins.  ‘Ruined’ is listed as being a part of a series, so I am looking forward to seeing what will be next in this series in the future.  Check this one out because the story keeps you curious in wanting to see who survives till the end.

__________________________________________________

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘RUINED’

Jax’s thoughts:  Descendants of Cain, the world’s first murderer, some of the male children in my line came into this world a demon attached to their soul.

Jax’s thoughts:  The only thing that made leaving hard was her.  Samantha Merrick.  The girl who, to this day, still pulled me from the mire and made it possible to go on, even if she didn’t know it.  She was my anchor and kryptonite all at the same time.  Salvation and damnation in one beautiful, unattainable package.

Samantha’s thoughts:  Chase was one of my best friends, and yes, he was hot as hell, but not in an I-want-to-hook-up-with-him kind of way.  The attraction was less about how he looked and more about who he looked like.  His twin brother, Jax…

Jax’s thoughts (memory of when he first met Samantha):  Standing beside Rick and Chase,  I’d watched the girl with the long brown hair stand eerily still.  She didn’t cry.  Didn’t speak.  Only stood there staring at the ground as her parents were lowered into the cold, wet earth.  Even then, so early in my life, I saw pieces of myself mirrored in her eyes.  Lost.  Alone.  Separated.  Ruined.

Jax to Samantha “Sammy”:  “I fucking breathe you.  Your face, your laugh, the way you chew at your bottom lip…All of it.  All of you.  Any light you think you see in me is an echo of you.-(Jax)

Samantha’s thoughts:  I saw everything.  I felt everything.  His thoughts and emotions in all those moments were buzzing around inside my head, inside my heart, threatening to make my head explode.

Jax’s thoughts/his demon’s thoughts:  What happened in the next few moments would either save us and damn me forever, or get us both killed.
I don’t know how, or why, but you love her…
A picture of Sam flashed inside my head.
I’m going to need to give you control if we have any hope of getting out of here in one piece…

Jax/Demon’s thoughts:  I could smell my own rage, spicy and potent.  In embracing the demon, its feelings were now my own.  There was no turning back.  It was about to rain hell.

UPDATE as of June 2nd, 2016 *CASTING NEWS*:  Tim Curry brought the evil Pennywise clown character to life in the T.V. adaptation of Stephen King’s IT novel. Now sources have stated that Stephen King’s It – 2-part big screen Remake, to be directed by Andy Muschietti, may have found it’s new “Pennywise dancing clown.” Actor Bill Skarsgard(Hemlock Grove) is said to be in final negotiations to play Pennywise, the evil monster disguised as a clown set out to lure children to a possibly horrible demise. New Line wanted to take the dark character in a slightly different direction while keeping true to the novel storyline itself. The different route they wanted to take is to make the Pennywise character a little younger. I absolutely am on board and excited! Thoughts, fans?

UPDATE as of April 12, 2016:  The latest information regarding the long awaited remake of the Stephen King adaptation “IT” is that director Andy Muschietti is still on board with the film but no casting news has been announced as of yet. The “IT” remake is expected to be filmed in two-parts as a theatrical release from both the children’s point of view followed by the adult’s point of view. Filming is said to begin this summer in and around the city of Toronto. As more updates come up, check back here for the latest news!

💥

UPDATE as of JULY 16th, 2015:  Don’t count “IT” out completely yet. When Cary Fukunaga parted from the film remake, the project was shelved. Now it seems that the studio is on the hunt for a replacement director and has their sights currently on director Andy Muschietti who directed the horror film “Mama.”  If he signs on as the new director, a new writer and script will be the next goal. Actor Will Poulter is no longer officially tied to the film but could possibly return if all factors align and if he’s available. The “IT” remake is expected to be filmed in two-parts as a theatrical release. As more updates come up, check back here for the latest news! 

💥

UPDATE as of JUNE 2nd, 2015:  What a way to deflate the fans excitement. I’m completely disappointed to share this update on the “IT” remake. The latest news shared by sources is that the film has been officially shelved a.k.a cancelled! It looks like we won’t be seeing an updated version of the gruesome and evil monster that disguised himself as a clown known as “Pennywise the dancing clown” in order to lure children to their demise. The story is based on the novel “IT” by horror writer favorite Stephen King and has been one of the scariest stories out there that continues to horrify readers. If any new updates emerge (fingers crossed for them to change their minds) check back here. I’ll definitely keep you updated on anything changes! Till then, here is a glimpse of “what could/should have been”: (Artwork ideas that were pitched for Pennywise – from Director and screenwriter Vincenzo Natali )

UPDATE as of May 8th, 2015:  Now that Will Poulter is said to be in final negotiations to play “Pennywise” the dancing clown in the upcoming “IT” remake, here’s an awesome (Photoshopped) image to give you an idea of how he may look in the role. This was made by “Mike from Last Exit To Nowhere.

UPDATE as of April 2015:  According to a few sources, Stephen King’s It – Remake will possibly begin filming this summer. Right now everything is in pre-production mode. More updates to come! Who is excited?

UPDATE as of May 21st, 2014:  The theatrical-adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘IT’ has had a recent change of studio today.  ‘IT’ has moved from Warner Bros. to New Line Cinema. Cary Fukunaga is still on board as the director according to sources despite claims that stated otherwise. We will continue to bring any updates as they are received.

The novel ‘IT’ by Stephen King and it’s 1,100 pages, is full of dark, scary and horrifying moments that dark nightmares are made of.  The questions remain:  Will the remake be made closer to the novel?  Will there be a huge, scary contrast between the television miniseries adaptation and the upcoming theatrical-film adaptation?  ‘IT’ is an awesomely-creepy story and most fans may feel that, if done correctly, it could have the potential to revive and breath new life to the world of horror films.  Only time will tell…

Stephen King’s ‘IT’ was made into a two-part television movie that aired in November of 1990.  The television miniseries had high ratings and has since become a fan-favorite in the horror-movie world, thanks to an evil ‘clown’ by the name of Pennywise.  Tim Curry received critical acclaim on his performance as Pennywise, the evil being disguised as a clown, causing horror, nightmares and death to his victims in a small town called Derry.  The ABC miniseries also starred Jonathan Brandis, Brandon Crane, Emily Perkins, Adam Faraizl, Seth Green, Marlon Taylor, Ben Heller and Jarred Blancard as the young characters. Also, John Ritter, Harry Anderson, Tim Reid, Annette O’Toole, Richard Thomas, Dennis Christopher, Richard Masur as the adult-version of the characters.

The Million-Dollar Question: Who would you like to see Cast for the film?

The Plot for ‘IT’:

In the Town of Derry, Maine the local children are disappearing one by one, leaving behind discarded, mutilated body parts/remains.  Soon afterwards, in a place known as ‘The Barrens’, a group of seven kids, known as ‘The Losers Club’, are united by their horrifying and strange encounters with a sadistic, wisecracking clown called Pennywise. They all seem to share the same kind of eerie experiences with this evil clown. One of the kids, Bill Denborough, has a more personal vendetta with Pennywise the clown.  Thirty years after their last encounter together with Pennywise, ‘The Losers Club’ has regrouped, leaving behind their adult lives they’ve lived successfully, after being contacted by the only member of ‘The Losers Club’ who stayed in Derry, Mike Hanlon.  He has let them all know that IT has returned, and kids are disappearing again.  The only problem is that they have all forgotten what occurred that summer.  But through a blood oath, they return.  It’s up to The Lucky Seven(formerly The Losers Club) to regain their memories, to think of the key to killing Pennywise, and end his tyranny but to also realize what brought them together in the first place.

Nomad Kind Of Love by Nicole Snow

The Synopsis & My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘NOMAD KIND OF LOVE: PRAIRIE DEVILS MC ROMANCE (Outlaw Love Series book #2)’:

First off, I’ve yet to read book #1 of the Outlaw Love Series but thankfully the stories in this series are only slightly intertwined because the characters make cameos within the novels, but the stories are individuals.  What drew me to this novel was the cover and the synopsis for the story, so I had to check it out.  The story is written in the two P.O.V.’s(point of views) of June Daniels and Aaron ‘Maverick’ Sturm.

June Daniels is a teenage girl with a twin sister, who lives at home with their mother and a father who is a part of the Grizzlies Motorcycle Club. She is awaken one night by the sounds of the Grizzlies Motorcycle Club invading her home and shattering her home life forever.  The Grizzlies MC decide to take control of June from then on.  Everything becomes a real life nightmare, with no end in sight. 

The Prairie Devils MC are sent out West and arrive to town, looking to establish a new charter in the area.  The President of the Prairie Devils MC is a biker who lives as a Nomad and rides with his crew where ever the mother charter needs them.  Aaron ‘Maverick’ Sturm is handsome, tall, tattooed and dominant.  They ride over to check out a local business owned by the Grizzlies MC to get an idea of what they are about.  Also, to let their presence be known.  That’s when he first sees her.

Maverick is taken by June and her beauty and the sadness in her eyes.  June becomes collateral to a shaky agreement made between the Prairie Devils MC and the Grizzlies MC, and becomes collateral property of the Prairie Devils MC.  The President  of the Prairie Devils MC, Maverick, becomes protective and finds himself wanting to know, keep and claim this mysterious yet edgy collateral named June.  But all June has on her mind is revenge. 

Will Maverick be the one to help June get the vengeance she seeks?  Can her outlaw savior Maverick be the love June needs or will she only cause problems that will bring war to the door of the Prairie Devils MC?  This story is definitely a nice dose of rough bikers, a battle for control and a lot of erotic moments.  This is a gritty and hot read so be ready for that.  If that is your kind of novel, then I do recommend this because it brings you the biker world in full force. Check it out!

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘NOMAD KIND OF LOVE’

June’s thoughts:  To find a knight, first you need a dragon.  My dragon came in columns of snorting engines and leather jackets emblazoned with a roaring bear.  It reeked motor oil, cheap tobacco, and hard violence from every nook and cranny.  It arrived on the morning of my eighteenth birthday, the day everything I knew and loved was burned to cinders, including my soul.  Rather than becoming a bright young woman, I became a dark shadow.

Maverick’s when he first see’s June:  What’s going on here?  She’s a nice strong cocktail on two sexy legs and one fine ass.  Spilling emotion out those sad pretty eyes like nothing I’ve ever seen.  Keep looking this way, baby.  Se the need in these eyes?  It’s not limp desire.  It’s a fucking promise that I’m gonna see a whole lot more of you soon.

Mavericks words:  “As I stand here, with God and my brothers as witnesses, I will kill them.  Every last member of the Missoula Grizzlies has a painful death on the way by these hands, and there’s no fucking stopping it.”

June’s thoughts on Aaron ‘Maverick’:  I had a lion between my legs, a man who loved as well as he killed.  I didn’t have a choice anymore.  My body decided for me, and so had my heart, throwing my worthless senses to the curb.  The pleasure he delivered in wave after knee trembling wave told me he was welcome there anytime he wanted.

The Wolf by Lorenzo Carcaterra

The Synopsis for ‘THE WOLF’:

My name is Vincent Marelli, though most people call me The Wolf. You’ve never met me, and if you’re lucky you never will. But in more ways than you could think of, I own you.

I run the biggest criminal operation in the world. We’re invisible but we’re everywhere. Wherever you go, whatever you do, however it is you spend your money, a piece of it lands in our pockets.

You would think that with that kind of power I would be invincible. You would be wrong. I made a mistake, one that a guy like me can never afford to make. I let my guard down. And because I did, my wife and daughters are gone. Murdered by terrorists with a lethal ax to grind.

That was my mistake.

But it was also theirs.

I wasn’t looking for a war with them. No one in my group was. But they’ve left me with nothing but a desire for revenge—so a war is what they’ll get. The full strength of international organized crime against every known terrorist group working today. Crime versus chaos.

We will protect our interests, and I will protect my son. We won’t get them all, but I will get my revenge, or I will die trying.

They will know my name.

They will feel my wrath.

They will fear The Wolf.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading  an ARC-Early Copy of ‘THE WOLF’:

I was given an ARC early-copy of the novel: ‘THE WOLF’ by author Lorenzo Carcaterra in exchange for an honest review.  This is a story about a society that lives behind the scenes, intertwined with individuals who run organized crime like a business,  hidden from the limelight.  They do their dealings like any successful business and control more than many are aware of.  You will be reading this story through multiple P.O.V.’s(point of view) starting with the main character Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli, also from four other characters: Vladimir “The Impaler” Kostolov(Russian leader of the Red Mafiya), Victorio Emanuele “The Cobra” Jannetti, Raza and  Brunello.

The story begins with introducing us to Vincent Marelli, known to many as ‘The Wolf’ because of his methods when it comes to handling people and business.  He was raised by an uncle who was already an established and feared mob boss.  Vincent ‘The Wolf’ is hit with tragedy. And now with the knowledge  that there are terrorists dead-set on causing as much destruction as possible, he must step up as a leader one of the youngest mob bosses, to do something about it.  He meets with their established union of mob bosses from other crime syndicates from other countries to see if they will fight with him against the threat that could affect them all.  A war is inevitable.  A war between international organized crime factions and terrorists that are willing to cause death, catastrophe and mayhem. No one is safe. No one is innocent in the battle except the victims who are unaware of those who have waged a war against anyone they can.

When I began reading this novel, the start of it began very promising and gets you emotionally invested into the character Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli after a tragic event.  As the story continues, you will be introduced to many characters through the first quarter of the novel, which may seem a tad bit overwhelming to some.  But they each play their own influential role in the story, even the few that are short lived. One character is Angela ‘The Strega’ Jannetti, who will be her father’s replacement from the Camorra syndicate in Italy and has history with Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli.  ‘The Wolf’ Novel really picks up in the second half of the novel as you begin to see where the characters fall into their roles and people begin to show their true intentions.  

Can Vincent ‘The Wolf’ handle his need for revenge while trying to lead the way against an international threat to his way of life?  When some of Vincent ‘The Wolf’s’ trusted allies begin to meet their own demise, who can he trust till the end?  Will Vincent ‘The Wolf’ ever find out who caused the tragedy that directly & personally affected him? This was a decently-thrilling story with an action-packed conclusion.  I recommend this to readers who enjoy a story with thrilling moments of action and suspense, in a world where organized crime and terrorism face-off for control and power.  As a reader, I’m curious to find out if there will be more stories to follow, surrounding Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli or if this will become a series. We shall see. On that note, check out this dark and interesting story.

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘THE WOLF’

Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli’s thoughts:  It was me they targeted.  Me they wanted.  It’s me they’ve  always wanted.  But they couldn’t touch me.  So they reached for the ones they could get.  And I let them walk right into it.

Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli’s thoughts:  …a modern gangster needed to be educated, as skillful with a spread sheet as he was with a gun and a blade.

Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli’s thoughts:  You don’t talk peace with a guy looking for a fight and you can’t cut a deal unless you trust the hand you’re shaking.  I looked at the situation from every possible angle and could figure no other way out.  It was a war that needed to be fought.

Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli’s thoughts on his son:  Jack was the blade the enemy held over my neck, and I feared the worst.  That fear?  It was both my sword and my Achilles’ heel.  My strength and my weakness.

Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli’s thoughts on Angela ‘The Strega’:  …I could not lose sight of a cold, hard truth -that behind the beauty and charm of the woman across from me was the brutal head of one of the largest criminal organizations in the world.

Vincent ‘The Wolf’ Marelli’s thoughts:  I knew on that night there were many more battles to be fought.
I knew there would be more opponents to be defeated.
I knew there was a good chance I would not win them all.
I knew that my son, my organization, could be lost if I failed.
But what I knew more than anything else was a truth I had always feared.
I knew now I would need to confront a destroy someone I trusted and perhaps even someone I loved.
I knew now the name of my enemy.
I knew now that my war had only just begun.
