Product description

Product Description

I have lost everything.
My purpose.
My love.
My soul.
Death knocks on my door, I want to answer, but every time I reach for the handle — the promise I made her, brings me back.
So I breathe.
I live.
I hate.
And I allow the anger to boil beneath the surface of a perfectly indifferent facade.
I am broken, I don't want to be fixed.
One last trip to New York, one last chance to redeem a lost part of the mafia family. The Empire is crumbling and it's my job to fix it, my job to mend the pieces that were scattered over thirty years ago.
The only issue is, the only way to fix, is to do something I swore I'd never do again.
An arranged marriage.
Only this time.
I won't fall.
Or so help me God, I'll kill her myself.
My name is Sergio Abandonato, you think you know my pain, my suffering, my anger, my hate — you have no idea.
I am the mafia.
I am the darkness.
Blood in. No out.

*Can be read as a stand alone, but best to read ELUDE (the previous book) first* If you need the reading order to the series simply go to my website*

If you've not read Elude by Rachel Van Dyken, I'd advise you in the strongest terms to read it before diving into Empire. In fact, I'd advise you to even stop reading this right here and go and read it.

Bring tissues.

You see, while each of the books in the Eagle Elite series and its related spin offs are written as standalones, the story of Empire picks up and builds, very much on the themes and storyline of Elude, and the character of Sergio Abandonato in particular.

For the second time in less than a year, Sergio is pressured to marry someone he hardly knows. Something hes even less inclined to do a second time around, but, if mafia families were nations, this would be considered a marriage of state. The joining of families, ensuring the succession of dynasties, honor, duty, all of that, and having failed his family in the past, that's something Sergio wont do again.

Then, as if all of that weren't bad enough, there's 'that girl'. Nearly ten years younger, 19 year old Valentina is sweet, innocent, and completely oblivious to the fact that the three doting uncles who've raised her and her twin brother Dante are mafia. So far as she knows the far too quiet little florist shop they run that she works in is kept afloat because of sound investments.

Splitting her time between being coddled and sheltered by her uncles and reading about dashing Dukes and perfect Princes, she's entirely unprepared for the whirlwind that her life is about to become.

After being somewhat broken by Elude, to the point that I start to tear up a little whenever I come across the word 'twirl', I approached Empire with some trepidation.

**You will have to have at least read Elude before reading Empire, but I would read the whole series for full effect**

Rachel Van Dyken has completely wrecked me with Empire.

I don't know how she does it, but each and every book in the Eagle Elite series gets better and better.

I didn't think it would be possible for her to better Elude, but right from the first words of Empire, I knew that it was going to be just as good.

But I was wrong.

It wasbetter.

I fell in love with Sergio in Elude, and I thought my heart was broken at the end of that book.


Not. Even. Close.

The continuation of Sergio's story annihilated me. I was an ugly crying mess. After the events of Elude, I wasn't sure what was going to happen with him.

And along came Valentina.

Sweet, naive to what her family really is. The complete opposite to Andi. But maybe, just maybe what the doctor ordered.

With each chapter, I was drawn more and more into this story. My heart hurt, my heart soared. My heart was filled with hope for Sergio.

And then there was one almighty clanger of a surprise that I really did not expect!

Empire was the perfect conclusion to Sergio's story, and now I can't wait for the next book in the series, Enrage.

I truly enjoyed this story. Getting to know Sergio even more was wonderful and I loved Val too. The question is....Will Val ever add up to Andi. Like sugar and spice or fire and ice. This book is one of my favorites in the series. It made me laugh. It made me cry and I believe this is a five twirls while singing in the rain kind of book. Thank you for this excellent read and I am stoked to read the next book in this series.
