Review: Riot (Scarred Souls #4) by Tillie Cole



Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.

Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.

He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.

But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.

Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.


ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

152 has been a captive since she was a child. She wakes up in the blood pit as high mona. Being a high mona means that only Master can touch you. It’s not an ideal situation, but it’s better than what most Mona’s have.

901 is the blood pit champion. He’s ruthless and he never loses. Being champion means that he’s not under the drugs like all the other fighters. He’s well aware of his surroundings, and he defies Master in every way that he can. After Master sees 901’s interest in 152, Master “gifts” him 152 to make him fully obedient.

901 has never cared about anyone, so when he started caring for 152, my heart turned to mush. They were so good to each other. I couldn’t wait for Master to die a painful death. I waited with bated breath for his impending execution. When Luca’s plan came into fruition, I was ecstatic. Sure, it was dangerous, but I had faith in them. When 901 and 152 learned each other’s real names, I couldn’t help but get emotional. It was powerful and so meaningful for the both of them. They were someone and they mattered.

Sadly, this is the last book in the Scarred Souls series. I loved every book in this series, and it always leaves me with an empty feeling when a series that I love so much ends. I don’t want to part with the characters, but I must say that this book’s ending was so beautifully written. It left me with a sort of peace and happiness for all the characters that I was so invested in. This is the ending that they all deserved.
