Um wow. I am still reeling from this amazing story. I was completely hooked from the first sentence.
The story starts out with our MC, Alessandra, talking about murdering her first boyfriend when she was only 15 because he didn’t love her. Um crazy right???!
Sorry not sorry but I have a weak spot for morally grey characters and hoo doggy this story did not disappoint. Alessandra is an ambitious, intelligent woman who knows what she wants and how to do it. She was fierce and funny and I loved her as a main character. I felt the plot was quick paced and everything was well fleshed out. I found myself totally wrapped up in this world and I didn’t want the book to end.
Overall, I devoured this book in one sitting and recommend for fans of dark fantasy! 😈I will definitely be reading more from Tricia.
“His last word was my name . His last thought was of me. I won.”
“Who in the world would steal and then not keep the riches for themselves? That’s just bad business. Someone that stupid must surely be caught soon.”
“Alessandra Stathos, that’s positively despicable.” He says the words like they’re the highest compliment he can give me. “You are an absolute gem, do you know that?”
“I know when I’ve been beaten, and I have barely even started.”
“I handled Hektor as I have handled everything else in my life: alone and with the utmost thoroughness.””
