Hey lovely readers!
Here’s a mini review for you! Since this is a novella I didn’t want to make this one too long. Massive thanks to Tillie Cole and Ardent Prose for providing me with an ARC!
“THE FALLEN: GENESIS
(A Deadly Virtues Prequel)
IN THE BEGINNING…
They told them they were evil.
They told them they were possessed by demons.
They told them that darkness ran in their veins.
Holy Innocents Home for Children is a haven for orphaned boys who have nothing and no one. The priests watch over them, educate them, raise them in the family of the church. Except for some.
Seven of the orphans are no ordinary boys. They attract the attention of the priests for their acts of violence, of bloodlust. The priests realize these boys are drawn to the darkness.
And the priests are no ordinary priests. They are the Brethren, a secret sect who believe themselves on a divine mission to seek out evil in the boys in their care. Seek it out, and then drive it out.
The seven have fallen from God’s grace. And the Brethren will cleanse their blackened souls…”
Dark Contemporary Romance novella. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.
Oh sweet baby jesus what the heck did my eyes just consume? I mean that in the best possible way, because holy crap this novella was so good! It was the perfect introduction to The Deadly Virtues series and I need book number one like yesterday. This was dark, twisted, disturbing, crazy, and wonderfully filthy! I am not a person who is triggered by anything in books. I will happily give any twisted and dark plot a chance and this one is no freaking exception. Be warned, this book is NOT romantic in any way at all.
The best thing about this author is that she always manages to surprise you and man did she deliver. I cannot wait to read about these beautifully dark boys. I am so excited to get to know these seven angels and learn the history of all that surrounds them. Bring on the dark, the pain, the grit, and maybe the romance? 😉 Definite 5 stars from me!
Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
