Are people born pure?
Is evil learned, or is it birthed into one’s soul, like a fallen angel who was previously part of graciousness?
Rhys is decayed, black, and bad. He cut distortion out of his life years before, but he let her live; his only way to gain redemption once more.
As his sinful needs blanket him with dread, he seeks penance from the soul he saw as a second chance.
Is absolution too late for Rhys?
Hmm, so wow. I’m a little out of words. This book was dark. Very dark. Like don’t read right before bed dark. I loved it though. There was something about the darkness that was captivating. I was drawn in from the very first paragraph where we’re introduced to our protagonist (doesn’t seem right to call him the ‘hero’ with everything he’s done/does) in a confessional after the most traumatic night of his life has occurred.
Rhys feels he’s a lost soul, that hope doesn’t exist. He lives without purpose. Except for one. Wren. He believes she’s the only one that can redeem him for what he’s done, and he’ll stop at nothing to get his hands on her.
Truly a compelling read. I couldn’t put it down and read the entire book in one setting. If you have a thing for dark and twisted writing, definitely check this one out.
