*Must be read after Vacant to fully enjoy this novel
What a perfect ending to this series! Cereus and Ryan….I don’t know which one I loved more. She was his compliment. He was her salvation. From the very first time these two met, I knew that one could not exist without the other. They are truly two halves of a whole. In many ways, I believe that Ryan kept Cereus grounded. He let her be free without losing herself to her demons. It’s odd to say that Ryan may be the more “normal” out of the pair. How strange does THAT sound????
Ryan is one character that I was not sure I would ever really like. How wrong I was! I know what he says, that he has no empathy, and I do agree…for the most part. But then how do you explain Cereus? I believe it goes back to my original train of thought, they are two halves of a whole. Does he love her? I think in his own way, yes. Does he love his brother? In his own way, yes. Even Mel. Then again, I could be all wrong and he really is the soulless evil man that he says that he is.
Blake and Mel also have to come to terms with a reality that they did not want to face. At times, it is heartbreaking. These two have come so far only to have history repeat itself. Old monsters also make an appearance and have the story come full circle.
Deadly MUST be read AFTER the entire series. It is NOT a stand alone. It IS dark and disturbing. And I loved every minute of it. I give Deadly 5 dark devious kisses. Perfect ending to one of the best dark series out there!
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
