EMPIRE is the final book in The Elite Forces Series. It is recommended to read books 1-4 before attempting to read this
We are hated.
Our Empire is crumbling right before my eyes. No one can be trusted for reasons that are consuming me, controlling me and ripping me away from my family.
This new family who has taken over the streets of New York has taken someone away from us. We will not let them take anymore. The only way to stop them is to sacrifice one of us.
*Recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to graphic violence, explicit language, and sexual situations.

** 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 from 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. 5 stars
This is the fifth book in this series and while it can be read as a standalone I think they should be read in order. This book is the final book in this series and I am crushed that it is. I love this book and this series. In this everyone truly comes together to defeat their enemy and protect their family. They are being came at like never before. Innocent people are being hurt to show them that they can’t protect everyone. Calla and Roan are forced to make some hard decisions because they are now the head of the family. Calla is challenged even more because she is a woman. Calla isn’t afraid to do what needs to be done; even if that includes putting herself in danger or killing someone. Will they be able to find out who is behind these attacks or will their family fall apart first? The men in the family are forced to do things they find hard. Their wives and children are forced to hide and miss out. I can’t say enough about this book or this series. I can’t recommend it enough. Kathy Coopmans is a fantastic author and I am always eager to read another book by her. I don’t want to give any spoilers away so I will stop now. MUST READ!!!
This is book 5 of the Syndicate series. I recommend that you read all of them. I've read all of the books in this series, and I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite mafia series! This would not be considered a stand-alone. Remember, this is a mafia series, so if you do not like graphic details, involving violence, then read another of Ms. Coopmans' books/series. ;) I do recommend that you read all of the books in this series, for everything to make better sense. This is the last book in the series, all of the questions that you may have needed answers to, in the previous books of the series, are answered here. I really did not want this book to end, but it was done perfectly!! I am hoping for some sort of spin-off, if not a type of sequel. I'll be watching to see what this Author has coming up for us next.
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.
