With a day left to read all the books I promised myself to read before the year ends, I definitely finished my goal with a day left to spare. I had never heard of this offer until a friend of mine met him at the New York Book Expo this year in New York, while he was promoting his book. To cut a long story short she got a copy of his book and gave it to me to read after she had finished it. She loved it and since we have the same taste in books I thought why not and added it to my list of books to read.
What I loved most about this novel is the amount of love & loyalty the six friends depicted in the book have for each other. Despite the dangers, the risks and their fight for survival in the gangster world, their friendship maintains strong as they depend on each other to survive. I loved this book by Michael Estepa! I even cried several times during the course of this book, which to be honest I never cry especially over a book about gangs!

For Christmas this year, I was given a fictional novel called "Purged by Darkness" by Michael Estepa from a friend, and I read it in 2 days! It was a fantastic novel! I loved it! This novel demonstrated the amazing friendship and loyalty between six friends in a gang world where they're all fighting for their lives. I read on his website that he's writing a sequel, I can't wait!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The members of a gang are linked for life. There is no easy out, once you're in, you're in. Secrecy is a must and betrayal equals death. Six friends are brought together by the Triads. The same connection that links them is starting to tear them apart. Can their family bond withstand the death that surrounds them at every turn?
I found this book to be extremely exciting. I've always loved books that are able to convey the relationship between people who are put to the test. In desperate times is when a persons character is most obvious and it always amazes me how much strength a person/character can possess. This very talented writer has a way of capturing your heart and you can't help but feel for the members of this gang.
