MY STAR RATING
A Dark Reverse Harem Romance.
My name is Stella, and after twenty-five years of living, I am finally starting to understand what it means to be alive.
Edward and Lincoln have taken my life and made it a whirlwind of sex, pain, and blood. They show me things I never would’ve imagined, made me feel real, genuine emotions for the first time in my life. I owe them everything.
There is a darkness inside of me, one I never knew existed until Edward and Lincoln, and together our beasts collide and make something truly new and terrifying. We are alike in more ways than one.
But the Angel Maker draws closer with each passing day. When he reveals himself to me, when he finally sheds his mask and steps into the light…what will I do? What can I do? I am drawn to him just like I’m drawn to my two psychopaths.
Whatever happens, you know it’s going to be bloody.
This is a dark, why choose romance intended for 18+ readers.
MY REVIEW of: Cold Dark Souls
by Candace Wondrak
I must warn you that this one is waaaaay more dark, sick, twisted and gory than the first one. Okay?
Okay. That’s my good deed for the day.
Och. My. God!
This series is sweeping me off of my feet!
Seriously, I can not get enough!
I have never in my life enjoyed a cliffhanger quite like the one at the end of book 1 (HERE).
I mean, who likes cliffies?
Me, that’s who (yes I’m a sick wee puppy).
Yup. If it’s done right then it just adds to the story.
And Candace Wondrak knows how to do a cliffy!
Okay, when book one ended, we learned who the Angel Maker was and we learned that Stella is…well, she’s not very well.
In the head.
Yeah, we figured that but what she had done was such a huge surprise, I’m still trying to process it!
However, in this one? OMFG!
Shit gets even darker and I find I’m loving how Stella explores her newfound emotions and cravings. (did I mention I’m a sick puppy?)
So much going on here.
I wanna tell you everything right now, but I also don’t want to ruin the surprise!
The struggle is real!
God damn, I have never wanted someone to start torturing another person as much as I wanted it in this book, lol.
I love Stella. I really do.
She is so fucked up and gives zero fucks. Life goals, peeps, life goals. Minus the killing I suppose. *sighs* society’s rules are so harsh.
LINCOLN & EDWARD
First of all…is Lincoln ever going to either stop jizzing on the bathroom wall or maybe even clean it up once in a while?
Anyway, he is still lying to himself that he’s not seriously falling for Stella. And, to be honest, it’s kinda cute for such a huge, dark and serious guy to be left uncomfortably taken with such a tiny girl.
He and Edward get together to give Stella a ‘gift’.
A rather unhappy and scared gift, if you catch ma drift? And from this point on, shit gets real.
I feel it’s my duty to warn you here: If you are squeamish and not into violence then this is not the book for you.
It is, however, a book for me 🙂
These two men are seriously fucked up and delicious at the same time.
They love her and they’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.
Unfortunately, that includes lying to her…and almost killing someone else she has the feels for.
THE ANGEL MAKER
I’m not going to name this guy yet, just in case you haven’t read book one.
But I will say this. At the beginning of this book, I wasn’t his biggest fan. Also, Stella is super pissed off with him.
Now though…well, he has potential.
I’m still a bit ‘meh’ about him but I’ll give him a chance to win me over.
As long as it’s with violence and skilled fucking.
I’m torn here. Part of me wants to share with you one of the darkest and most violent sex scenes I have ever read…and part of me wants to share the hottest scene in the book.
Och, whatever, I’m gonny do both 🙂
The first one goes like this:
I am desperate for the RH to be formed!! I need it now!
Looks like I’ll have tae wait until book 3 though.
In the meantime, I have these scenes to keep me wet and wanting.
“Hold her arms.” I went to grip her wrist, pulling them up by me as he positioned himself between her legs, pushing inside her without so much as a warning. Stella breathed out a sigh as Ed filled her up. And then Ed became the animal we all knew he was, wild and untamed, rough every which way. His thrusts were deep and hard, his expression one of anger and need. He needed to be inside of her, needed to fuck Stella like the world itself depended on it. In a way, I supposed it did, because it seemed Stella was his world now, which meant she was mine. Stella. Fucking Stella. Ed’s back arched, and I watched him squeeze his eyes shut. I knew his body almost as well as I knew my own, so it didn’t take me long to recognize the signs of his impending orgasm. He raked his fingers down her chest, grabbing Stella right beneath her breasts, holding onto her ribcage as his thrusts became desperate, practically begging her cunt to milk him dry. He let out a sound that was like music to my ears. Hearing Ed have his way with her was…stimulating, but now wasn’t the time for more sex. I had a feeling that would come later. What I wanted was to introduce her to Destiny.
Which leads us into the next amazingly disturbing, dark and erotic scene.
If you are squeamish, look away now.
Edward had stuck two fingers inside of me. “That’s so fucking hot,” Lincoln muttered, dark eyes on me, on Edward, on the both of us.
I kept cutting, and Edward kept rubbing, pumping me with his fingers as I sawed through her bone. Once the bone saw was through the bone, the rest came apart with ease. The severed hand fell from the restraint, smacking the floor with a loud, squishy thump. Destiny herself sagged forward, her head held back by Lincoln. Her whimpering had stopped, her eyes blinking slower. Edward’s other hand crept up, cupping one of my breasts, tweaking my nipple as he continued to finger-fuck me and his lips roamed my neck. I could feel his hard-on behind me, and I arched my back, running my ass along him, gripping the bone saw tighter. I took the bloodied bone saw to her inner thigh, barely able to keep my concentration thanks to Edward. I knew what was coming, and yet I fought it. I fought the pleasure as much as I could, because I wanted to hear Destiny scream one more time before death took her. I wanted to cut her in half and watch as she bled out—and then I wanted both Edward and Lincoln to take me in the blood. I was more fucked up than I realized before. No normal person had thoughts like that—no normal person wanted to be fucked while lying in someone else’s blood.
FINAL THOUGHTS on COLD DARK SOULS by Candace Wondrak
Wow. This one was so sick and twisted that even I had to stop for a moment now and then. But you know what? I loved it. I know some of you will be out there like, “Wtf?”, but the rest of you? The rest that ‘get’ me? You are my tribe. I feel no shame 🙂
