In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box.  In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks.

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness.

But that’s the thing about fear.  Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out.

It’s been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I’ve tasted retribution and crave more of it.

Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love.  I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free.

The plan is perfect, except for her.  The one woman I’m forbidden to have, whose soothing touch settles my fractured mind.  My angel of mercy sent to silence the voices. Yet, not even she can save me from the black void wherein my skeletons lie buried beneath the truth. Because in order to feed my thirst for revenge, I have to destroy the very thing that gives me purpose.

Tooth for a tooth, heart for a heart.

“Every minute of this is a piece of my destruction.” His ragged voice sent a shiver down my spine. “You’re going to destroy me, angel.”

Ty is a man hardened by an event that ruined his life completely. At such a long age he lost his best friend and practically his brother, Eli, along with his father in such tragic ways. Now, Ty is ready to exact his vicious revenge that has been years in the making. He promised he would destroy those that took his only family away from him. Now, is the time for those men to suffer, eye for an eye.

Sera Kutscher is the daughter of a powerful man. She is wealthy but has never felt like she fit in those circles. Now that she is off to college she wants to be as far away from all the niceties she was brought up in. Most of all, she wants nothing to do with her control freak of a father, not that he’d even care. Sera is trying to embrace her freedom in the world, but this proves to be difficult in the dangerous side of the city where she seems to need to watch her back at all times.

‘I was drawn to her light. Her purity and innocence, as if I’d been buried alive in a cold dark tomb for too long, before being given one breath, one moment of warmth on my skin. I craved her as much as the air and the heat I needed to feel alive again.’

Ty has been preparing for this for so long that he has mastered the skills he needs to be undetected and a fierce hunter. This book started off dark from the very start. It hooked me in from the beginning and was quite painful to read at some parts. But the writing was absolutely superb as I’ve come to expect from every Keri Lake book. Ty saves Sera after she is left behind at a party. Sera is very hesitant to trust him or anyone really for that matter due to the marks her past has left imprinted on her. Slowly, Ty wears her down and she begins to drop the walls around herself and her heart. The chemistry between Sera and Ty was absolutely palpable. I loved every freaking moment of it.

This book was so gritty and in such a seedy setting that worked so well. I could not put this book down because I just needed to know what Ty would do next. He was a great character, just perfect for the Vigilante series. Sera was also tough and would go any lengths for the people she loves. These two just made for a very interesting love story, one that was full of sexy passion. I absolutely loved that we were slowly given the events of the past by the timeline going back and forth. Slowly but surely, Ty’s and Sera’s storylines started to unfold and come together into one big picture. There are a few twists and some gruesome parts that are definitely not for everyone. However, I still think this a great dark read that you need to read for yourself.

***WARNING: Contains scenes of child abuse, rape, and graphic violence.***
