Sabato Efisto was born from an unholy union, the bastard son of a martyred saint and the Devil. At least, that's what he's believed, for most of his life.
His father is an Italian crime lord, a man so dangerous that Sabato's mother died trying to get away from him. For that tragedy, which happened on his seventh birthday, Sabato blames himself. Every year, he practices the ritual of self-punishment, flirting with death the way most boys his age flirt with girls.
Until ten years later, when he meets a sweet girl named Luciana, at St. Andrews of the Holy Cross. For the first time in his life, Sabato doesn't want to end it. The darkness in his soul is replaced by hope. But, as the priests will tell you, the sins of the father are not easily escaped.
And those who are born into darkness, must carry that cross forever....

This is the beginning of a beautiful story. My heart breaks for him. You watch his life evolve from when he is a young boy into a man. You see the influences of his past influence his present. This novella was just beautiful. From the beginning you're wrapped in his world. Feeling what he feels and going through what he goes through. I cannot wait for the book.
MJ Fields has wow'd me again. EROE is the story of Sabato Efisto in his earlier years. It is Raw and Emotional. It will grab you and hold you until the very end! You feel every raw emotion from Sababto! I recommend this book to all!
MJ Fields had my emotions all over the place with Eroe. That's a damn good book to be able to do that. Tissues needed - Yes. Earmuffs for little ones - yes. Adult beverage after reading - REQUIRED. I love her writing style but one of the things I admire most is every character has their own personality. She excels in this part of her writing and Eroe is no different. It's a terrific read. Enjoy!
