*Must be read after Vacant to fully enjoy this novel
WOW! I was so excited when I heard author Ker Dukey was writing more about one of my favorite f***ed up characters, Ryan. I couldn’t wait to read it. This latest installment takes place after Vacant. It focuses on Ryan and Cereus. How they handle the darkness. It is cray cray to say the least. I think there may be something wrong with me because I love Ryan’s twisted, dark, psychotic ass! LOL….but this story is definitely that. Twisted, dark, cold, scary mindf**k.
It is written in flashback/ present and takes us through events that put Ryan and Cereus where they are now. We also learn how Blake, Ryan’s brother and Cereus’ dad has been involved. And I do love Blake. My heart breaks for him. The story is intense and not pretty but it captured my attention and kept it till the end. That ending?! I need more!! That’s all I’ll say about it.
This book is part of a series and you need to have read the other books in order to understand and fully appreciate Deadly. I absolutely LOVED Empathy and Desolate. They are 5 stars for me. The novella, Vacant was also 5 stars. If you are a fan of dark, gritty, mindgames, you will love this series! Author Ker Dukey writes in a unique, creative, fluid style. She infuses some humor to lighten the crazy but even the humor is deliciously twisted. If you haven’t read this series, now’s your chance because she is releasing a boxed set with ALL the books for just 99 cents on preorder!!! ORDER YOURS NOW!!!!
