This book was amazing! This is the second book in The Killian Delaney Novels, and if you haven’t read the first book, Seven Crows, I highly recommend it! I’ll add a link to my review of this book a little later in the post!
This series features Killian, our kick-A female lead character, a girl with a unique set of talents to take care of crappy villains. I love her because she’s a flawed character and struggles with her own demons. It makes her relatable. Her talent for tracking down the bad guys, however, is beyond anything I could ever do, and I love reading about her adventures!
The character Killian was such a bad-A$$. I was engrossed with her character. You remember that little movie, Taken, well she’s the female version of that dad. Kate Kessler wrote a book that played like an action movie in my head. Every description she used was just the right one, and I loved it.
How I Felt:
This was a gritty, descriptive book and every time someone landed a punch, I knew exactly how they were feeling. The writing was so well done, I could picture everything. I felt nervous for characters, hoping they were making the right decisions, worried if they would make it out alive. It was a suspense-filled thriller and had me on the edge of my seat.
The story begins with Killian Delaney having just been released from prison for beating a man to within an inch of his life. She’s a bit of a celebrity in the underground circles for this, but she has made an enemy as well. The man she maimed beyond repair, the leader of a biker gang, wants revenge for ruining his life.
Killian’s sister Megan, calls her with the terrifying news that Megan’s daughter, Killian’s niece is missing. Killian is immediately set on a course to get her back and no one will stand in her way. She now needs to step back into her old life with bike gangs and outside-the-law friends to save her niece.
To Read or Not To Read:
This book is perfect for action/thriller lovers. It is full of moving pieces with some mystery and secrets revealed. There’s very little down-time. The book is fast-paced, moving right along.
An ex-con tracks down the men who have kidnapped her niece in this gritty and visceral thriller.
Killian Delaney has a skewed moral compass, a high threshold for pain, and has just been released from prison to discover that someone has taken her niece. Killian does not hesitate. Loyalty is the most important thing in her life, and when she gets a call from her sister saying that her daughter is missing, Killian immediately begins hunting down the men responsible.
She quickly discovers her niece was involved with a notorious biker gang who are engaged in everything from drugs to human trafficking. And to make it worse, the man who sent Killian to jail, the one she nearly beat to death, is at the center of it all.
To save her niece, she’ll need a plan. A smart, quick, and efficient one. Because she’s going to do it right this time. She’ll burn them to the ground.
