An attack on one Avdonin will leave the family stunned and hurting. Their retribution is brutal, but the repercussions for their revenge will be even more devastating. Because when blood is spilled in their world, more must fall, too.
No one is safe. They have always been formidable--unstoppable. But they are not bulletproof.

The author did an exceptional job with this novel (a rape victim) and I love it. I connected very easily with the main character Demyan as well as Gia. I felt both sides of their love for one another and their frustrations when their lives gets challenging. The same connection between Ana and Koldan was felt as well. This was a shorter book than I am used to, but I the author didn't waste time with meaningless words and the past and present shifts happened naturally.What I liked even more about this story was that the sexy bits isn't all there is to it. There is so much more to this book and dynamic story. Overall, definitely a book I would recommend, great coming of age type of story that's not full of sunshines and roses but a victim with lingering emotional trauma. This is the first time reading a novel by this author but not the last and I'm looking to read more from her/him.
