All is lost.All.
I don’t recognize myself in the mirror anymore.
My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.
I’ve lost my soul.
She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.
Sixty lives are mine to take.
Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.
Sixty lives plus one more.
When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.
Only one person stands in the way.
She doesn’t realize I’ll kill her too.
I don’t own a heart.
And even if I did — I wouldn’t fall prey to its lies again.
I am Chase Abandonato.
Heir to a legacy of betrayal.
And I will kill them all.
Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.
A life for a life.
A soul for a soul.
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Blood in. No out.
Chase is self destructing. He’s miserable, and he wants to die. He’s been betrayed by the woman who he swore to love for the rest of his life. She’s gone now, so he has to take his anger out on someone else.
This was hard to read. Chase has always been the happy, funny, easy going guy. I couldn’t see a hint of that guy in this book anymore. He’s gone. What replaced him was a mean, desperate, and depressing person. I couldn’t believe that Mil would every betray them. They were all solid couples, and it was really sad to read about her betrayal.
Luc is gentle, kind, and more of a lover than a fighter. I didn’t want her to replace Mil, and in a way, she didn’t, because she was very different from her. I admired her tenacity and bravery. She didn’t back down from anyone, and she fought for Chase until the very end. I was reluctant to let Mil go, but I love Luc for Chase.
