Quite a good representation of one of the main characters in the book. Fucked up.
Nicely Paced. One HELL of a cliffhanger. In this first episode, the author introduces up to Dylan and Rip. Painting a picture of their separate but equally dark and painful backgrounds. I felt in this episode of the series we got to know Dylan a little more than Rip.
I am sure in upcoming episodes that the layers that make up the man Rip is will be slowly peeled away. Both characters hold so much potential and it has me gnawing at the bit to get episode two in my hands. Not much more to say really. View all 22 comments. Bloody, bloody, bloody I read dark in the dark.
Bright and sunny days are not the right time to step into the dark and see the stuff of nightmares. Keri Lake has ripped me from my nice and cosy world and dumped me into one filled with screams of pain, bullets with your name on it and time measured between your next hit. I'm going to be dreaming screaming about blood Loved it You can't help but turn your mind o Bloody, bloody, bloody You can't help but turn your mind off to the violence as you read a Keri Lake. For me, there's a little compartment that I place all the dark scenes where I can somehow It's like I can turn off how bad and disturbing they really are.
What I can't get enough of, is looking into the mind of the characters.
I like to see where the characters have been and what they will face. There's this little part of me that wants them to find their own happy place This is part of the story and I can't wait for more. Now, saying that, I'm kind of happy to inform you that this author has done right by her readers. I'm very impressed. To see more of my reviews, fashion, food and pervathons View all 23 comments.

But one unfortunate decision put her in a path of Ripley - a far more dangerous fate she could ever imagine. Wolves and sheep. I really like both Dylan and Rip. Their dark background shaped who imagine. Their dark background shaped who they were today. Rip's character was quite clear cut for now. But Dylan could be a wildcard.
I have a certain hope for her lol! Nothing penetrates the layers of fuckupedness that have become a permanent skin I wear while killing. The story was engaging and fast pace, just the way I like. Not much was revealed yet but enough to make me want for more. The dark and edgy story shows great potential for an ass kicking series. View all 24 comments.

I'm trying to be as vague as possible and to keep it spoiler-free so that those who haven't read all episodes yet can enjoy the full experience.
Sometimes I like to venture into the darker corners of my mind with the help of a super talented author. When I hear Keri Lake has a new book coming out I'll hand over the reins and let her take me out of my comfort zone. I trust her to make me squirm uncomfortably Dylan is only a few weeks away from her 18th birthday and it can't come quick enough.
At the hand of her uncle she suffers unmentionable abuse which she only bears in a drugged up stupor and barely remembers what happened afterwards. Her mother died of a drug overdose, or that's what authorities want her to believe, and her father committed suicide. Dylan's only tether to a semblance of normalcy and the one being she cares most about is her dog Charlie.
After another horrific experience with her uncle she has had enough and flees the filthy apartment. Having no money to get by is a problem so what's a girl to do? Ripley is a hitman for one of the mob families competing for power in Chicago. When he follows one of his targets he observes a girl getting into the car of the man he is supposed to kill. He saves her from being raped and killed He tortures them, makes them beg for a merciful death without remorse. This girl, though, is an enigma to him. She is innocent and yet she isn't, she is naive and still streetwise.
Ripples of Mind The Cat Rule Chronicles Book 2. But users prefer Top 7 Rules and Exercises of the Christian Faith Didache Rule of St Augustine Rule of St. Book 1 of 2 in the Free City Series . “The Ripple in Space-Time” (published by Striped Cat Press in February of It is now available from Striped Cat Press. . it is definitely an entertaining read from an author that I will keep in mind for the.
Ripley doesn't need witnesses yet he sends her off on her way So what's a guy to do? If you think loving a man like Rip is impossible let me tell you - it isn't. In some twisted logic Keri Lake makes you believe that this cold blooded, obviously psychopathic killer is deep down a good man.
He is ruthless, twisted, charismatic and single minded in his focus on his target. Dylan brings out the tender feelings inside of him he didn't think he had. Is he gentle with her? Far from it. Their love is raw, violent and volatile. She fascinates the cruel Ripley and soon he finds himself entangled in a relationship with an expiry date.
The more time he spends with her the more he obsesses about her and the more possessive he gets. And can I say he is HOT? Because, damn, he is! She is strong with enough softness, sweetness and vulnerability to make her relatable. She has a youth about her that belies the darkness inside her.
I don't think I would have survived the atrocities she experienced in her young life. Together Dylan and Rip are explosive but if you look closely there is a gentle side to their relationship that comes unexpected. I adored how they took care of each other, how these two broken souls fell in love and made sense despite their darkness. Merciless and merciful.
Wild and broken. Keri Lake's gritty writing is flawless as usual. She tackles a very real and uncomfortable subject and passes with flying colors. The mood is intense.
go Sinister, brutal and raw and not for the faint of heart, yet in the end you'll find yourself deeply in love with a brutal killer and the love of his life. If you haven't read a book by this author yet and love grungy and gritty tales I urge you to pick up one of her stories. You won't regret it.
Dylan is a young woman, desperate to escape her circumstances but darkness is constantly bleeding into her life. In a series of miserable things to happen to her, Dylan crosses paths with the ruthless killer Ripley and her life changes forever. I mean, I already pretty much knew this from reading Ricochet, but this book just reinforced in my mind how unbelievably talented Lake is with words. Because this was dark. Like, I felt nauseous and had to skim some of the more violent parts because my weak butt could not handle it. Nevertheless I very much enjoyed this first installment and cannot wait to get to the others!
