The Synopsis for ‘El Santo’ :

I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.
I killed.
I tortured.
I loved…
I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options.
If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe.
If you weren’t with me, you were against me.
Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.
Not for me.
For them.
For anyone.
Only for her…
She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.
A fucking monster.

Until it was too late.

Except, I didn’t choose this life. It. Chose. Me.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘EL SANTO’:

“El Santo” is the latest novel by the talented author M. Robinson. The first novel I read from this author was El Diablo and that was a mind-blowing read! It was perfection! This novel falls into the same realm and intensity as that one. This novel is definitely a dark romance with a great dose of suspense. The fascinating and emotional roller-coaster these characters must struggle through and live with is both entrancing and riveting. This is definitely a page turner! Once you start, you just can’t stop. Amira and Damien’s story is just beginning and left me with an ache in my heart for both characters while still holding onto a glimmer of hope. It’s all the intensity that a great novel should deliver and then some. El Santo is written from the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Damien Montero and Amira.

Damien was raised by his father, who was a close follower of a Cuban dictator by the name of Emilio Salazar. Damien admired and strived to follow in Emilio’s footsteps. When he comes face-to-face with the truth, about how his father and Emilio truly lived, he was also faced with a soul changing moment that would completely shape his life. One day would change everything he believed and knew and he’d end up needing to protect someone he was supposed to have completely destroyed.

Amira was a young child, clenching to her doll Yuly, as she witnessed the most tragic and horrifying losses in her young life. That night changed the course of her life when an unexpected person gives her the much needed safety and security she needed. Feeling so alone, she’s left at the mercy of strangers and a person she would’ve never thought would become more to her than she could’ve ever imagined.

As the story progresses, we witness the growth of Amira and her growing connection to her protectors, the only family she has in life now. All the while, Damian continuous to work for the brutal dictator Emilio Salazar while becoming a lethal killer. He’s lived two separate lives, keeping them both safely apart for as long as he possibly could. It worked, until they both began to bleed into one another despite his efforts to stop it.

Sometimes, the one thing you want and need to most in life, you have to let it go to keep it safe from destruction. “El Santo” is a truly heartpounding and emotionally charged story about Amira and Damien and their struggles with survival, taking risks, a bond that becomes hard to ignore and doing everything they can to not give into what hearts desire most. I highly recommend “El Santo” to those who love a riveting story filled with dark romance, action and for readers who don’t mind a little intensity and a complex story-line. Reader Warning: There is some violence and sexual content. Heads up, it does end on a slight cliff-hanger BUT book 2 will be so worth the short wait, which is titled “El Pecador” and will conclude Damien and Amira’s story. It will be out in early-January 2018! Read this one! It’s absolutely worth it! If you’ve read “El Diablo”, this one gives the same style of explosively awesome raw depth. Get your copy today! ❤




How I imagined Damien Montero “El Santo” and Amira while reading ‘EL SANTO’:






Damien’s thoughts: My story is going to make you fucking hate me as much as she does, but I want you to. I’m no looking for redemption. I’m not looking for your forgiveness. I don’t deserve it like I don’t deserve hers.

Damien’s thoughts: I felt the demons that would eternally haunt me. Torment me until the day I died, until I took my last breath. I didn’t walk through the valley of the shadow of death that night…
I would now fucking live there.

Amira’s thoughts:  It was then that another reality came crashing down on me.
I. Was. Wrong.
So very wrong…
The monster hadn’t left, he was standing right in front of me. Pulling the trigger.
Ending it all…

Amari’s thoughts:  I believed him when he said I was safe in his care, which was why I didn’t want him to go. I didn’t want to be a scared little girl, taking on this new world alone.
In a way, he was all I had left.

Damien to Amira: “I’m sorry, Muñeca. For the past, for now, for the future… for everything.”

Amira to Damien: “You don’t want me to be happy. All you want is for me to burn in the darkness with you. Well, I can’t do that anymore.”

Damien to his father:  “I protect what’s fucking mine. Nothing is going to happen to her and if someone – anyone – so much as tries, I won’t hesitate to pull the fucking trigger.”

Damien to Rosario:  “One day soon, I won’t be the man who saved her. I’ll just be another fucking monster that haunts her dreams.”

Amira’s thoughts:  He was the beginning to my end or maybe it was the end to my beginning.
It didn’t matter because he was my home too.
He would always be home to me.

Damien’s thoughts:  I’ve told you from the beginning of my story that I was nothing but a fucking monster. At least now, you can’t call me a liar….

Synopsis for ‘BATTLE SCARS’:

From the dusty plains of Afghanistan to the sleek corridors of the New York Times, journalist MJ Buckman seeks the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. What she doesn’t expect to find is a man who’s her complete opposite … and fits her perfectly.

Marine Sergeant Jackson Connor knows that relationships don’t work for men in the military. He’s living proof of that. But when a steely-eyed temptress in a flak jacket, who carries her moral cause in front of her, crosses his path, he’s furious, curious, and all kinds of in-lust.

* * *

A grown-up love story about two people who aren’t looking for love, but realize how precious it is when they find it. They don’t play games and there are no stupid misunderstandings, just life standing in their way.

Can they compromise? And what does that look like in a modern relationship between two driven people?

Assignment Vs deployment.

They’re always traveling in different directions. What relationship can survive that?


My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘BATTLE SCARS’:

“Battle Scars” is the latest novel from the amazingly-talented author Jane Harvey-Berrick. This Contemporary Military Romance novel touches on deeper topics regarding war and a love that grows unexpectedly. This author never disappoints when it comes to building great characters that form believable bonds while dealing with life changing events. Battle Scars is written from the main characters’ P.O.V.’s(point of view), M.J. Buckman and Jackson Connor.

Journalist M.J. Buckman is a driven and talented journalist for a well-known news network. She has big dreams of one day getting a promotion for a permanent position as a foreign correspondent. When she finds herself in a hostile situation in Afghanistan, she finds herself thankful yet furious at a Marine who lets her know how he really feels about her being there. Unexpectedly, an open-ended invitation may just send her life toward a cross roads that she’s never had the chance to experience before.

Marine Sergeant Jackson Connor is a ruggedly, strong and devoted man who proudly serves his country. The safety of his fellow Marines and completing their missions are always his main concerns. When he’s sent on a rescue mission, he can’t help but feel frustrated at the situation and the person needing to be rescued. But what surprises him the most is this attraction he feels toward this journalist.

Battle Scars delivers an enthralling and riveting story-line about two career driven people who can’t ignore their growing connection. Even so, they have the challenges of distance due to their careers while dealing with the ups and downs that life brings. M.J. and Jack have never really felt the need to put a relationship before their work but begin to find it hard to continue feeling this way when it comes to one another. I recommend this wonderful and beautiful love story for those looking for a lovely read that isn’t too dark or heavy. This one is definitely worth checking out. ❤

A Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review for: Forbidden Addiction by R. L. Kenderson.

ARC-Book Review! A Blogging Reader’s Review after reading ‘Forbidden Addiction’ (Forbidden Series – Book #4) by R.L. Kenderson.


(This review will also be posted on Amazon.com and Goodreads.com)


Author: R.L. Kenderson
Series: Forbidden Series (book #4)
Publishing date: August 1st, 2017 (Review is based on an ARC Copy)


(Click the Cover below to order a copy of ‘Forbidden Addiction’ Now)

The Synopsis:

With a tortured past, she’s a cat-shifter who refuses to get close to anyone. Yet she can’t seem to resist the leader of the vampire protectors.

Phoenix Kaplan has never felt a connection like the one she has with Dante Leonidas. She might service him monthly, allowing him to feed from her blood, but as much as her body tells her differently, she knows it can be nothing more, not with her insecurities and inability to be intimate with a male.

That is, until she realizes the one thing she desires most in the world is something he can give her…and she propositions him to impregnate her.

She’s never wanted anything more than to be a mother, and all she needs is this one thing from Dante.

Although he should refuse, Dante can’t resist the temptation. He’s addicted not only to her blood, but also to the enigma that is purely Phoenix. And he is determined to prove to her that he can give her much more than what she asked for.

She might protect her heart with an impenetrable wall, but he’s willing to do whatever it takes to break down that wall in order to get what he desires most in the world.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘FORBIDDEN ADDICTION (Forbidden Series book #4)’:

*May contain Spoilers if you haven’t read the other novels of the Forbidden Series yet.*

This review is for the long awaited and much anticipated fourth novel of the Forbidden Series titled: Forbidden Addiction by R. L. Kenderson. This series never disappoints and continues to deliver with sexy romance, suspense and an enthralling story-line that will keep you hooked. I absolutely love the fact that this story is so intricate and diverse with its characters. It’s never focused on only a couple of characters and that keeps their world of shifters, vampires, and humans very fascinating and entertaining.

If you enjoy multiple P.O.V.’s(point of views) in a story, this one offers a variety for readers. There are five P.O.V.’s from: Sentinel Shifter Phoenix Kaplan, Guardian Dante Leonidas(Vampire), Guardian Hunter Esmund(Vampire), Guardian Lexine Harlow(Vampire), and Guardian Sterling Wardell(Vampire).

Phoenix Kaplan is a Sentinel Cat Shifter who had recently survived a kidnapping and the horrible treatment from her kidnapper. She has a strong attraction to a Vampire Guardian named Dante that makes her feel things she’s never felt toward any man before. There’s only one problem, she won’t allow herself to get closer to him because of her history with the opposite sex. Phoenix carries so many fears hidden behind her tough exterior, so will she be able to find her happiness or will she always be stuck behind her past issues?
Vampire Guardian Dante Leonidas doesn’t understand his attraction to Phoenix, who is nothing like him and he finds it very hard to ignore it. When Phoenix gives him an outrages yet intriguing offer, he must decide if he’ll help her out. If he does see it through, will he be able to truly help her the way she needs most?

Just when they thought things would calm down after killing their enemy Gerald, something else begins occurring. The Cat Shifters and Vampires have made an alliance since their leaders have married. It seems it has come at a cost by those who don’t agree with that alliance. Will they catch those behind the vigilante and growing violent acts before someone is harmed?

Guardian Hunter Esmund has always felt something was missing with his attraction toward the opposite sex. He practically has given up on looking and just keeps things simple. When he meets wolf-shifter Quentin, he begins feeling things he’s never felt before. There’s a genuine attraction. But could this just be a curiosity or is there something developing that he can’t ignore? And how could this effect his role as a Guardian?

Vampire Guardian Lexine Rocha has always had a crush on fellow Guardian Dante but he’s never felt the same for her. Out of spite, she made friends with a group of vampires that disliked the new pact made between the vampires and the shifters. Lexine must choose between her duty as a Guardian and her new friends. When she finds herself in a difficult situation, will she be able to find her way out of it? How will Guardian Sterling Wardell do when he discovers that Lexine has been hiding something from all of them?

This series will take readers on an enjoyable journey into the world full of intriguing characters and a story that never falls short. I highly recommend “Forbidden Addiction” and this entire series to anyone looking for the next novel and series to get lost in. It’s definitely worth it! I’ve yet to be disappointed by any of these wonderful novels in this entire series. Such an amazing blend of strong and at times, imperfect characters. Check this out for sure! 🙂

Synopsis for ‘PRIVILEGED’:

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen-year-old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘PRIVILEGED’:

“Privileged” is the latest novel from author Carrie Aarons. This entertaining standalone novel comes from the Contemporary Romance genre and delivers with enjoyable characters and a decently good story-line. This story is written from the two main characters’ P.O.V.’s(point of views) which are Nora Randolph and Asher Frederick.

Nora Randolph is an American girl who’s a new student at Winston Preparatory Academy in London. It’s her senior year of high school and to add to that pressure, she must blend into this new posh school filled with her elite and privileged peers. She’s far from her old town in Pennsylvania now that she is set to become the step-daughter to the Duke of Westminster. To top it off, it seems a certain popular jerk named Asher is determined to make her life a living hell.

Asher William Frederick comes from a line of overachievers who’ve never had to worry about anything since they have the connections and money to do as they please. Asher and his father conjure up a plan to bring down the Duke of Westminster by any means necessary. They blame him for the night Asher’s mother died. With vengeance in his heart, he tries his best to satisfy his and his father’s anger. But, what Asher didn’t plan on was slowly finding himself falling for the innocent and sometimes naive Nora.

Can Nora handle every little snide remark and prank these rich snobs sling her way? And can Nora find her place in her new challenging life? Will Asher ever find a way to heal from his mother’s death or will he continue to live in his shallow lifestyle with no real depth? This story was a pleasant surprise and did not disappoint. It’s a fun read with a plot that keeps things interesting. It’s great to see the characters grow from start to finish. If you’re looking for something appealing to entertain your romance-reader needs, this one is a good one! Check this out. ❤

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘ASHER BLACK’:

“Asher Black” is the debut novel from new author Parker S. Huntington. I will begin my review by stating that, for a debut novel, this was gripping and enthralling from start to finish. This fast-paced novel is filled with high-volume sexual tension, witty banter, and unknown danger that just keeps this story flowing smoothly. The characters are an enticing blend of: Alluring successful man who potentially has strong ties to the mafia who meets a tough and beautiful college student who uses her guile when necessary. Asher Black is written in the main female character’s P.O.V.(Point of view), Lucy Ives.

Lucy is new to New York. As a new student attending the prestigious and respected Wilton University, her life seems headed in the right direction. She quickly starts up a friendship with her new roommate Aimee. Before long, a night out dancing turns into an unexpected night of twists and turns for Lucy. After experiencing a steamy moment, witnessing an altercation that snowballed, and trying to forget what she witnessed and did, will Lucy be able to move past that night?

Asher Black is known as a dangerous man and someone you do not want to mess with. On top of that, he’s disgustingly rich, successful, and attractive beyond words. His rumored ties to the Romano mafia family, just add to the reasons why you don’t want to cross him. When Lucy unknowingly crosses paths with him, her life gets thrown into a surprising and dangerous tale-spin. Will Asher bring danger to Lucy’s life or will the explosions come from their growing sexual tension?

“Asher Black” is an exciting and enticing story about Lucy and Asher who both grew up with rough childhoods. Now as adults, their paths intersect, leading to a roller-coaster ride in more than one. What is the deal these two will make with each other? Is someone out to get one of them or both? This dangerously entertaining novel delivers on everything you’d hope for from a story-line with a very fierce, at times ruthless, and always sexy man like Asher Black. And, you can’t forget the strong-willed, kindhearted, and beautiful Lucy Ives who is a survivor and not easily breakable despite the rough terrain she’s had to withstand in her past. I recommend this great novel for readers looking to read something with action, romance, and an entertaining story. I definitely am interested in seeing what comes next in The Five Syndicates Series! 😉 Check this one out next! ❤

How I imagined the characters while reading ‘ASHER BLACK’:



Lucy’s thoughts: He’s breathtaking. My eyes trace the defined edges of his jaw, entranced. He has a face that belongs on the big screen, but my intuition tells me he’ll never agree to such exposure. It’s his eyes that convey this to me. They’re intelligent but also guarded.

Lucy’ thoughts: The shallow, senseless part of me tells me to forget who Asher is. To acknowledge and accept that my life will soon be over. That part of me is encouraging me to just take a moment to enjoy the touch of a gorgeous man before it happens. Even if that gorgeous man may eventually be my killer.

Lucy’s thoughts on Asher’s words:  There is nothing I won’t do for the ones I love.
I’ll remember his warning for as long as I live. I was wrong. His love isn’t his weakness.
It’s his greatest strength.

Lucy’s thoughts: I look good. It’s almost weird. Last time I saw Aimee, I was wearing my own raggedy clothes. Now, I’ wearing handmade, one of a kind creations. Is this how Julia Roberts’ character feels like in Pretty Woman? Two parts princess, one part whore?

Lucy and Asher Black:  I’m emotional because he defended me. I can’t tell him this, though. It makes me too vulnerable.
His eyes look earnest and void of judgement when he says, “It’s okay to cry at kindness. This is the first time someone has stood up for you, but it won’t be the last. I’ll always look after you, okay?”
Of course, he figured it out.
This is Asher Black.
“You’re different than I thought you’d be.”
Back then, I thought he was cruel, calculated, and perceptive. A lethal weapon. I was right. But I was also wrong. He’s so much more than that.

Lucy and Asher Black:  “I just… I can’t help but feel like I should be doing this…”
“Don’t.” The harshness in his voice is shocking. “Don’t even think about it, Lucy. Between your life and hers, yours is the one that matters. Every. Single. Time.
Because you’re mine.”

A Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review for: Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole.

ARC-Book Review! A Blogging Reader’s Review after reading ‘Damnable Grace’ by Tillie Cole.


(This review will also be posted on Amazon.com and Goodreads.com)


Author: Tillie Cole
Series: Hades Hangmen Series – Book #5
Publisher:  Independently published (Review based on ARC copy – early review)
Publishing date: April 16th, 2017


(Click the image below to order ‘Damnable Grace’ Now)



The Synopsis:


Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance.

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘DAMNABLE GRACE’ (Hades Hangmen Series book #5):

*May contain Character Spoilers(Not story Spoilers) if you haven’t read the previous novels of the Hades Hangmen Series.*

The completely dark and gritty Hades Hangmen MC Series continues with the fifth installment titled “Damnable Grace” by the always amazing and talented author Tillie Cole. This series continues to deliver such depth, raw-emotional dialogue, and a captivating story-line that can break your heart one moment, then revive it fully the next. As always, I will do my best not to ruin any of the plot twists or spoil any of the big moments for you readers. It’s best and more fulfilling to experience it all on your own. This novel follows one of the wild Hangmen trio known as “AK” to his MC brothers and it also follows the cult sister Phebe. The story is written from the three character’s P.O.V.’s (point of views) of Phebe, Xavier “AK” Deyes, and some from Flame.

The Hades Hangmen MC Brothers are out to rescue the sister of one of their old ladies and to bring down the the twisted group who has imprisoned them. The MC must face off against the ruthless Aryan Brotherhood clan that has descended to their part of Texas. AK can’t seem to get the beautiful cult female with the red hair out of his mind. As he and the other Hades Hangmen MC brothers dig deeper into finding out where Phebe is, they discover the very dark place they’ll have to go to in order to bring them down and rescue her. How can they do this dangerous mission without suffering too many risks to the MC? As they plan, it seems  likely that they’ll have to infiltrate in order to bring their sick enemies down.

Phebe had one duty for the commune which was to lure and entice new men to join the cult by seducing them. That was until the cult gave Phebe to their business associate by the name of Meister. The evil and violent commander Meister now owns her in his controlling and terrorizing ways. All Phebe can do is hope that those that she loves are far away from this hell. Will Phebe ever escape her current hell or will she die under the pain she lives daily? How will her past touch her present life and will the truth of that past be destroyed along side of her?

Flame is still Flame. The only person that has been able to break through his dark exterior is Maddie. His newfound little brother Asher means a lot to him since he was found but Flame isn’t familiar with normal feelings and expressions of those feelings. He continues to struggle to get closer to his brother, his only family outside of his biker brothers. With the troubles the Hangmen find themselves facing, he may face that moment. Will he be able to?

The Hades Hangmen MC are violent and vengeful when the situation requires it but now they must face off with something worse. A clan of cruel and brutal racist abusers who see the MC as an enemy. This dark Contemporary Romance will leave you holding on tight to your feelings and take you on a gripping ride! 😉 There is a special little bonus at the end, so definitely be on the look out after Damnable Grace ends. I highly recommend this novel and series. These characters and the story-line constantly grip the readers attention and never lets go until the end. “Damnable Grace” is very dark, heartbreaking and touches on twisted situations but the emotional depth intertwined keeps you wanting to continue their journey. Reader Warning: It touches on sensitive topics such as abuse, sexual assault and some brutal violence. This is such an enthralling series! It’s definitely a Must read! ❤

How I imagined the characters while reading ‘DAMNABLE GRACE’. ❤




Devin (Deyes brothers):  “You got no idea what it’s like out there, X. You got no fucking idea.”
“I wanna fight, Dev. I… I wanna fight for our country, like you. I.. I fucking wanna be like you, Dev. Always have.”
He’d saved us. Pulled us outta the damn gutter.
He was my motherfucking hero.
“I wanted better for you, kid.”
“Fighting alongside you, for our country and freedom? That’s as good as it goddamn gets.”

Phebe to AK:  “You,” she said again, a new lightness in her voice. Her fingers ran over my lips, then up, stopping at my eyes.
“The one with the kind eyes,” she murmured. Her head tilted to the side like an innocent child.
“You would not kill me. I deserved to die, but you would not kill me… because you had kind eyes.
A devil’s man with angel eyes.”

AK and Phebe:  “It ain’t gonna be easy, Red, but you gotta eat something.” He pointed to me. “Right now you’re a bag of bones.”
I gasped as I stared at the girl in the mirror. Her skin was dull and gray.
Red, I thought as I stared back at my reflection. AK had called me “Red“.
The color of my hair.
I startled at the brief flicker of a smile on my lips.
Not Phebe. Not “whore”… but the sheer simplicity of the name Red.

Phebe and AK:  “My freckles. My millions of freckles stand out against my pale skin like neon lights in the fire’s glow. I always disliked them.”
“Look up. Look up at the sky.” I said again. She did.
“There are so many stars,” she whispered.
“Imagine the sky without them.”
“Why would I do that? They make the sky so pretty. They are the reason people stargaze. To see their beauty.”
“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at.”

AK’s thoughts:  And with every mile made, I let me hatred of Meister build inside me- fuel to this fucking mission. Or massacre, I thought to myself. I’d make him pay, strip his flesh and slice through his guts. And as I looked to my left and right, Flame and Viking by my side, I knew they’d be with me too.

Story Quote: “Live Free. Ride Free. Die Free!”
