** Review written by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **
“This man & his entire army are about ready to feel the wrath, the redemption, the absolution and the deliverance for murdering my uncle.”
Wow, just wow. I am at a complete loss. My head hurts. My heart is aching. The final instalment in the Syndicate Series. I am going to miss them all. Cain, Roan, Aidan and Dilan Calla, Alina, Deidre and Anna. These guys, who have been a part of my world for so long, has now come to a close. And guys believe me when I tell you that I didn’t expect their ending to go like this.
Again we are introduced to the Diamond Empire. A tight family, who although break the law, are loyal and they love each other unconditionally. They are a solid unit. Their bonds are simply unbreakable.
But what happens when those bonds are tested? What happens when trust is gone? What happens when the walls they have built to protect them are crumbling?
The family is in trouble. Someone is out for blood. For their blood. Death surrounds them. They are being killed one by one. A new family in New York are set to destroy everything that the Diamond empire have built. How can Roan and Calla stop them? Who can they trust? How can they save their family from crumbling into a million pieces? How can they save their family frmm any more grief and pain? Or is the damage to great to ever repair? Will the Diamond Empire ever be the same again?
Guys you so definitely need to read Empire to find out. Empire….What can I say other than I was completely captivated from the very beginning, I seriously couldn’t put it down. It’s raw, highly confronting, and at times gruesome. It’s heartbreaking, breathtaking and simply beautiful. It’s dark, gritty and action packed. Oh and please lets not forget…..Sinfully delicious…..No wait panty melting….It’s all things so yummy it will make your insides tingle.
Empire is absolute perfection. It is extremely powerful and an absolute fitting ending to this amazing series. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Sheer brilliance.
Empire by Kathy Coopmans was fantastic. I loved having all the different POV’s throughout the book. You get some of everyone although it centers around Roan and Calla. This book was so emotional and kept me wanting more yet not wanting it to end. You could literally feel the angst coming off the pages from the betrayal and deceit. I was angry and my heart broke for all the heartache and pain this family went through. Seeing these hardened mafia men cry almost did me in! Talk about big lovable softies when it comes to their families, except when you cross them. Get ready to face the wrath. I fell so hard for Cain in The Wrath of Cain, but OMG I absolutely melted in this book. This one quote completely did me in. “Christ. I love you so much. Don’t go anywhere, Calla. Never leave me. I swear to God as my witness, I won’t survive without you.” Another thing I loved was the strength and determination of the women. Calla is one tough cookie that proved she will do whatever it takes to take care of her family. You must read this book. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Yes yes yes Kathy saved the best for last she brought it all together in this last instalment. At the start of the book the family is in turmoil they are heartbroken after an unexpected and devastating loss but never underestimate this family. We get both Calla and Roan's POV they are both struggling to deal with everything that's happened and Calla has a new role she has to accept. There is betrayal and deceit at every turn, lives are lost the guys seen to be running in circles trying to figure out who to trust and who is the real threat. Loved getting back to all the guys and their families, loved all the drama I was on the edge of my seat at points. Kathy gave us a fitting end to this fantastic series.
