Devil’s Blood by Amity Cross
Series: Royal Blood, book # 3
Genre: dark, contemporary romance
We would embrace the darkness together…
Or not at all.
Xavier Blood is a man adrift. And a dangerous man without purpose is a lethal cocktail for disaster.
Mercy Reid has her revenge, but it’s not what her heart desires most.
After everything he’s been through, X doesn’t want to know where he came from, let alone who he was. Mercy has become his life, his anchor, his everything, so why should it matter?
Mercy thinks X is delaying the inevitable and pushes him to understand the thing he struggles with the most—his identity—but it might be one push too far in the wrong direction.
Who is Xavier Blood? Only one man has the answer and it’s the man Mercy wants to meet the least. The more X withdraws into his broken mind, the more desperate she becomes to save him, even if it means coming face to face with the man who tortured and conditioned her love to be a cold hearted killer.
The Watchman has the answers, but are they the ones she wants to hear?
Fast-paced, tension, dramatic and edge of your seat reading. This book is brilliant.
It’s book number three in the series but please don’t let that put you off – this is a series that is a must-read.
So we continue on with X and Mercy’s journey. Mercy is X’s star pupil in teaching her the skills to be a killer. She’s good. She’s very good. But it’s X’s character development throughout the series and this book in particular, that had me hooked. Big, bad man actually does have a heart. He is not the man who started the series and he couldn’t possibly be given everything he and Mercy have been through.
Mercy is one tough cookie. She is exactly what I want in a heroine. I admire for her grit, her edge and her attitude. I have to give praise to Amity for the complexity of this story. The way the story unfolds has me gasping and eager to follow the twists and turns. I am a huge fan of the TV shows Alias and Covert Affairs and this ending, is better than Alias’ ending. I have my fingers and toes crossed for another instalment.
I was given an ARC for my honest opinion.
