Blurb
Greed. Jealousy. Lust. 
It all started with a bloody palm and a promise. Words beneath the moonlight that I thought would keep us together. Forever. 
Deceit. Betrayal. Vengeance. 
I didn’t see it coming. I didn’t think you had it in you. But what was supposed to bury me—break me—simply remade me as something new. Something hellbent on ruining you, my love.

REVIEW:

Oh boy! This book was a doozy of epic proportions! I really had no idea what to expect when I picked up this book. All I knew was that it was a a Count of Monte Cristo retelling and the cover was calling to me. There was betrayal and revenge plots around every corner and it really did keep me on my toes the entire book.

Dante appeared to be the luckiest man on the planet. He got the good looks, the ability to succeed in school without hardly trying, the woman of his dreams, and the uncanny ability to pick up hobbies and succeed at them. The problem with being the luckiest man on the planet…people envy you. Envious, greedy people betrayed Dante in the worst way, and when he was free to act on it, he brought those people to their knees.

I really loved Dante’s character and the journey he experienced. He was a knight in shining armor type before darkness entered his world. Darkness made him harder on the outside, but he still had that heart of gold on the inside that the darkness could never completely tarnish. Dante’s love for Mercy was the picture of beauty and their strength in their love was amazing.

Mercy. This poor girl was put in the crossfire of envy people who did not think about how their actions would affect her. All she had ever known before Dante was pain and fear from the one man who should always protect her. Dante saved her only to experience a new kind of pain when he was ripped away. The faith that she has in Dante and their love is something I have never seen. She fought and endured unimaginable pain in order to save him. She learned how to stand on her own in this book, and her growth in this book was amazing.

This was my first book by this author, but it certainly won’t be my last!

Overall Rating: 5/5 Stars!
