She’s a war I cannot win. She’s our salvation.
Erie is the one creature that can save my race from dying out. The thing is, we broke her, but we broke the wrong parts. Now, the only thing that girl craves is revenge and a need to destroy with a rage that burns hotter than the fires of Hell. I’ve loved her longer than she has been alive. She’s in my veins, and this is one war I cannot afford to lose against her.
He’s a battle I’m willing to fight.
They say nothing worthwhile comes easy, that if you want something bad enough, you have to fight to get it. They’re idiots. They say love is a battlefield, and they were right about that, but this isn’t a battle of wills. It’s a battle to the death.
He thinks I can be saved. I don’t want to be saved; I want to destroy everything and everyone that ever hurt me. I want the world to feel my pain, to taste my rage. I’m not their savior; I’m their damnation. I don’t want to be saved by him or his kind. I’m the War they won’t see coming until I’m on top of them, waging it against them.
I am Erie, and I’m going to set the world on fire and walk through the ashes of those who have wronged me.
Warning: Erie isn’t a hero; she’s the antihero in this story.
This isn’t a love story. It’s a dark and twisted battle of wills and bare bones. They’re going to war against one another, and it will be brutal, chaotic, and beautiful. So if you’re not into dark retellings of twisted love stories, this isn’t for you. Thank you for looking, but I’m an unapologetic author of alpha-holes and the women who fight back against them. I don’t believe in insta-love. I believe in putting them through hell and making them earn it first.
This is her best book since the Sleeping With Monsters series. Amelia Hutchins is such an excellent writer. Her writing style is amazing and the way she describes the worlds she creates is phenomenal. It does have a lot of sex like all her other books, and yeah, it does tend to be too much sometimes, butttt the storylines make it work. I really don’t understand why her books don’t have more recognition. I’d recommend not buying Oh, Holy Knight since this book has been released. That is basically just a preview into this book without a lot of the details this one has.
As always, Amelia’s writing was beautiful. Every chaotic scene was so detailed, and it’s so rare to find an author who can capture/portray these things. The little things (Fred dynamic was my favorite) were beautifully woven together. With that being said, I did find myself getting a bit lost with some of the terminology and jumping around from who was who/keeping track of the characters. I had a hard time staying as interested and focusing with the seeming repetition in the cat/mouse game in the first half of the novel (at least). The characters didn’t quite appeal to me as much as Ryder’s books and Lucian’s. Though, I wouldn’t fault that part to the author as much as I would my own preference. I just didn’t care as much for the character qualities this time around. Still, I look forward to further reads from Hutchins.
Brilliant explanations! Best. Story. Ever.
Wow, this story explained so much with the Fae Chronicles and the Monster series so thanks Amelia! Erie is not really Erie, Callaghan is explained in a way you can almost put the pieces together but then the story twists. Erie may be the beginning and the end of all stories and I can’t wait for the last of all the books. I hope Zharuk gets a mate!
