The breathtaking finale to the USA Today bestselling Cartel trilogy.
People aren't born monsters.
They're made that way.
They're created, fuelled by one singular moment in time when their universe shatters.
I'd been with Dornan Ross for the better part of a decade. Slept in his bed, sewn up his wounds, tasted his blood, seen inside his soul.
But even I wasn't prepared for what he did.
I should have known it would always come down to this, from the very moment I laid eyes on him in that motel.
I should have known his salvation was too good to be true.
Because it's all gone now, the impossible love I had for him bleeding away in the darkness that came afterward.
Now there's only hate.
Now I just want to escape.
Even if it means I have to kill him to be free.
Before the Gypsy Brothers series there was the Cartel -- from USA Today bestselling author Lili St Germain.

My PG rated review! Holy Crap!
Lili you have done it again! I purposely paced myself reading this book because I didn't want to be done in the gypsy brothers world I cannot imagine what it was like writing it... I have loved everything about the gypsy brothers series! I am a full on lover of Dornan Ross and found myself not hating Mariana because I love her character but I just wanted to scream at her to just get over it and stay and love him! I would totally be the Bonnie to his Clyde in every way and I am not ashamed to say so! The ending was perfect! Still showing Dornan has a heart no matter how evil and dark he is.... There is a small part in me that hopes you come back and write more about the gypsy brothers world and I will be first in line to order. I will return to this world over and over again until my books are as worn out as Mariana was in the end! I am a huge fan and will read anything you write!
Love this series
I was generously given an ARC. I started the Cartel series from the beginning so when it came to the Empire book, I had to skim and reread the other 2 just so I could have the continuity. This is definitely an edge of your seat story esp since I have not read the Gypsy Brothers series. From what I gathered, Dornan is the villain in the Gypsy series but in the Cartel series the reader gets to experience his evolution into this villain. And since I didn't read the other series, Mariana and John's story was a surprise. Mariana is such a strong character and I feel for her.......and I definitely feel for John, talk about being trapped! I was really conflicted about Dornan.....but Emilio...he was evil personified! This series has a it all and I can't wait to start the Gypsy series!
