I bought this book once I finished Corrupt because I became so engrossed in the storyline that I had to read the next book in the series. I really liked this story as much as I did Corrupt (Devil’s Night #1), and I look forward to the next book in the series. These stories are dark, but they are about love, loyalty, friendship, and family. Kai will do anything in his power to keep the people he loves safe and out of harm’s way. I give this story a 4.5-star review.
