Review by Iza

There are times when I surprise myself by venturing out of my reading comfort zone and tackle a book that is dark and I don't know what to expect of it.

I love Shanora Williams' writing style - and the cover and blurb drew me in - so, dark or not, I jumped into this one. Oh and it's part a trilogy - that means, it ends in a cliffhanger. Not a huge fan of those, so it's double the challenge.

Now, besides a couple of scenes that were hard to read, I have to say I really liked the book.

The heroine, Gianna, gets kidnapped right on her wedding day and taken to El Jefe. Now the twist is that, El Jefe knows Gianna.

And I'm pretty sure he's falling for her.

But of course he has to be a major jerk and mofo throughout the book, pissing me off with this and that, making me root for Gianna - who, by the way, kicks ass because she's strong. Never once does she abandon the hope or idea of getting away from her kidnapper, not even caring if she gets killed.

But El Jefe has a soft spot for her - we get a glimpse of it, I'm hoping there will be more in the next books - so she stays alive.

Let me tell you, the ending is good. Makes me eager to get my hands on book two and see what else will happen because El Jefe is NOT a good guy. He's an anti-hero, he's the bad guy and you bet many are gunning for him. I just hope my heart can take whatever will happen in the next two books.

4.5 stars.
