Product Description

Product Description

We would embrace the darkness together…
Or not at all.

Xavier Blood is a man adrift. And a dangerous man without purpose is a lethal cocktail for disaster.
Mercy Reid has her revenge, but it’s not what her heart desires most.

After everything he’s been through, X doesn’t want to know where he came from, let alone who he was. Mercy has become his life, his anchor, his everything, so why should it matter?
Mercy thinks X is delaying the inevitable and pushes him to understand the thing he struggles with the most—his identity—but it might be one push too far in the wrong direction.
Who is Xavier Blood? Only one man has the answer and it’s the man Mercy wants to meet the least. The more X withdraws into his broken mind, the more desperate she becomes to save him, even if it means coming face to face with the man who tortured and conditioned her love to be a cold hearted killer.
The Watchman has the answers, but are they the ones she wants to hear?

Fast-paced, tension, dramatic and edge of your seat reading. This book is brilliant.
It’s book number three in the series but please don’t let that put you off – this is a series that is a must-read.
So we continue on with X and Mercy’s journey. Mercy is X’s star pupil in teaching her the skills to be a killer. She’s good. She’s very good. But it’s X’s character development throughout the series and this book in particular, that had me hooked. Big, bad man actually does have a heart. He is not the man who started the series and he couldn’t possibly be given everything he and Mercy have been through.
Mercy is one tough cookie. She is exactly what I want in a heroine. I admire for her grit, her edge and her attitude. I have to give praise to Amity for the complexity of this story. The way the story unfolds has me gasping and eager to follow the twists and turns. I am a huge fan of the TV shows Alias and Covert Affairs and this ending, is better than Alias’ ending. I have my fingers and toes crossed for another instalment.
I was given an ARC for my honest opinion.

Well that was a stunning conclusion to an incredible series. I did see some of it coming but was still intrigued to find out how it would be pulled together.

Mercy and Xavier are in love but won't admit it to each other. Typical right. Anyway, they go through hell and back to get to where a future may be possible. With all the twists and turns it could go either way, and with the "The Watchman" involved, there's no telling who will survive.

I highly recommend this thriller conclusion to an fabulous series. Do yourself a favour and read them in order. They could be read separately but makes more sense in sequence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic series ending!!!!! 24 July 2015
By Sheila73 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What a finale! I read this whole series in two days and was crestfallen when I realized I had reached the end. Each book kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation of what was going to happen next, which I could never suspect because there were so many twists and 'OMG moments'.

After the end of Bad Blood (Royal Blood #2) I mistakenly thought that X and Mercy could pause and take a breather for at least a short amount of time, but how wrong I turned out to be! Mercy may have had her revenge but that was a trifling matter compared to all of the MINDF***ERY that kept getting thrown our way, for the characters AND the readers!

My emotions were all over the place. I spent most of the beginning being angry and frustrated with Mercy. Actually....I seem to have spent a substantial amount of the time I spent in this series upset with her. I'm not sure why...except that maybe it was because I felt a fierce need to protect X, even from her. She made stupid decisions that put them both at risk and she didn't trust him as much as she should have. You have no idea how hard it is to write this without giving anything away! I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but there are so many things I wish I could say right now!

Just be prepared to NOT be prepared for the things you learn! The circumstances surrounding X and his life before becoming the "pet assassin" for Royal Blood are revealed and they're shocking, as well as heart-breaking. Mercy chose a course of action that belied her lack of faith in X and was responsible for each and every following effect afterwards. Like a huge line of dominoes falling over with nothing anyone could do to stop its natural course.

My personal most favorite part of this book was the growth of X and Mercy's relationship. Even when they weren't physically together they spent a lot of time looking at their hearts and realizing exactly how much the other meant to them. When X came to understand that it was truly LOVE that he felt so deeply for her it was beautiful. Even though he had spent all the time he could remember NOT feeling any sort of attachment or intimacy with anyone, once he decided to love he did it with all of himself.

X and Mercy get their personalized version of a "happily ever after", but I still would like to see more about what develops in their future. Maybe a new series? Or a novella just for us diehard fans? I'll be happy with anything as long as I can get more X and Mercy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such an amazing series!!!! 24 July 2015

Received a copy in exchange for an honest review

“He smiled and leaned in for a kiss. His lips were soft against mine, in a rare show of tenderness, the tip of his tongue caressing my skin before claiming me in a slow, passionate dance. F@ck that man could kiss.”

5 stars all the way!! Amity Cross did not disappoint with this third book in the series!! You feel for X and what he’s going through and you struggle with Mercy to find out why X is the way he is.

We would embrace the darkness together…

The Watchman has the answers, but are they the ones she wants to hear

The third book in the series picks up where book two left off. Mercy and X are still in the cabin and he’s still quiet and unsure of who he is. Although he is now sleeping with Mercy and his nightmare’s seem to subside. And while Mercy is happy with what they have she struggles with the fact that she knows he’s suffering on the inside but won’t tell her. X is still hell bent on seeking revenge on Royal Blood, so he’s making plans and putting them in motion, when he gets a call from Vaughn, telling him he has a surprise for him. I don’t want to go into more detail and ruin it for others, but I will say that it gets intense after that and Mercy is forced to make decisions that may jeopardize her and X, and everything they’ve had. And X is forced to figure out who he really is. This series is and was amazing!!! I’m now a huge fan of Amity!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Conclusion 24 July 2015
By Jessica from Maine Book Momma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I spent last week dialed into the violent and gritty world of Amity Cross's Royal Blood series. It's a dark environment filled with seriously nefarious characters. A place where no one seems safe and where situations are so bad, people are risking everything to be free of it. However, I loved being there. I was completely immersed in Mercy and Xavier's romance because their love and relationship was this strangely beautiful light the shined through the chaos of it all.

The latest installment in this series, Devil's Blood, didn't feel like it was about revenge as much as the previous books. It was more about this duo finding their new normal. Xavier and Mercy are unsettled - where do they go now? They struggled quite a bit emotionally and to move forward but they had some major roadblocks in their way. It almost made me feel like their love wasn't going to be enough and it only made me root for them more.

And then the Amity drop kicked the plot into high gear and everything goes to absolute hell for the couple. It was amazing. I was on the edge of my seat worried for them and where I was once only curious about their future, I now was terrified that they might never get their happily ever after.

I shouldn't have worried. The way the author concluded their story was incredible - it unfolds in a manor that leaves you feeling addicted. I devoured page after page and I loved every single moment in this book.

I thought Devil's Blood is intense and emotionally charged. The sexual connection between Xavier and Mercy alone will leave you panting and wanting more. Add to that the drama and suspense surrounding Xavier's past and you're unable to put Devil's Blood down. It is an awesome book and I highly recommend it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Man or Monster? 23 July 2015
By The Fairest of All Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A man of their creation or his own?

Stay in the present where he's static or fight to get answers about his past that could very well make him lose all control?

Xavier Blood - an assassin programmed to kill without emotions

But who was he before?

Well, readers will get their answers in Devil's Blood, and the journey to those conclusions will come at a price, not only for X but for Mercy Reid as well. Blood will be spilled and secrets revealed and their lives will not remain static after this.

I absolutely loved this story; the transformations of both X and Mercy in the series, all leads up to what goes down in Devil's Blood, and it is one fantastically dark and gritty ride.

I don’t blame X for deciding to let his past go and focus on the present and learning to be the new Xavier - the man who loves Mercy and just wants to be with her. Is it naive to think that he wouldn’t be forced to face things? Yea probably, but learning about the past doesn’t change what happened; in fact, it only complicates the pain, frustration, and confusion X already feels. But with the monster still festering under the surface and Royal Blood out to silence him, Xavier can’t hide forever because there’s too many variables at play and one is the woman who means everything to him.

Does Mercy’s persistence to learn the truth about Xavier’s past and the actions she takes to make that happen cause unnecessary complications and anger X off? Absolutely. But Xavier can’t be completely reborn without acquiring the full picture; he can’t move forward when people are still out for his blood.

Mercy kicks butt in Devil’s Blood; she fights for her man and for herself, and even though some of her decisions led to bigger worries, every single one that she made was to give Xavier back himself because she might not be able to completely fix him but she can darn sure give him a bit of peace.

Xavier Blood was an assassin, a hitman, a ghost, and unfortunately a monster, but he’s also a man who was conditioned by a group of deplorable men who wanted to make him their puppet.

The new Xavier blood is still a killer and a ghost, but he’s also a man who has withstood a plethora of pain, torture, and darkness and created a life on his terms.
