"Some say the past is in the past. That vengeance will hurt both innocent and guilty. I never believed those lies. Once my lust for revenge is sated, I'll say goodbye to hatred. I'll find a new beginning."
She came from a past Arthur "Kill" Killian never forgot. She made him sin and made him suffer. She tugged him from the shadows and showed him he wasn't as dead as he thought. And with her resurrection came betrayal, deceit, and war.
But then they took her. Stole her. Imprisoned her.
Now Kill's carefully laid plans for vengeance are complete. He craves action, retribution-the blood of his enemies. War has begun. War is all they'll know until they've paid their penance. He will get her back-and rewrite their destiny...
The story isn't just about Kill's revenge anymore. Sure, getting revenge on his father and brother is part of it, but in the end his plan is much bigger. I think with this book I truly fell for Kill. I also liked Cleo much more, which was one of the reasons I wasn't a fan of the previous book. I, especially, loved them together as a couple. Although, still having a few issues, they were pretty solid and pretty much perfection.
The author's writing as always was flawless. I swear, with every book I'm more and more in awe with it. She writes beautifully. She also writes some damn hot scenes. The way she writes Kill can make any woman's knees weak and wish she could be Cleo.
I thought the story was greatly ended, everything fit perfectly. Sometimes I think ending can be a little too drawn out but with the end in this book I actually wanted more. The secondary characters were also awesome to read about. I really liked Grasshopper and love to learn more about him someday.
Ruin & Rule was yet another winner for Pepper Winters. I liked the first book, but it wasn't my favorite from this author. This one, whoever, was really good. I loved it and the things I disliked in the first book turned around and I actually started liking those certain things and characters. I couldn't have asked for more than that! I already miss the characters.
