********* I received a copy of this as an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) for review *******
Scarred by Elizabeth Knox is a wild ride. This book is not for the faint of heart … it’s darker than the others books that I’ve read from her. While I enjoyed most of the book, there are some parts that were a touch much for me but I did read it cover to cover and understand why the darker stuff is in there.
We have the MC Demons of Hell, which is a bad MC. It does have good people in it but Rage the Prez is one bad man. And not in a good way. He’s awful to his wife, his members and even more so to people that do what he wants or groups he wants to take over. His power trip is one for the record books.
We have Roxy, his wife in name only. He’s a monster to her and puts her through stuff that would make most people sick and actually die. We then have the VP, Tex. He’s a complicated dude with a good heart.
The book does take a little bit to get going due to building the back story and the graphic detail that the author goes into to explain Roxy and her past. I won’t cover that here as it’s a touch much. We have Tex come to her rescue and while he gets her away from Rage, it’s only a matter of time before he hunts them down and tries to kill Tex and take Roxy back. It doesn’t work and we make our way to the Reapers MC, who just happen to be Roxy’s half brothers.
The Reapers take them in and work to get them back to a normal way of life. All is going well with Roxy and Tex and then we have the introduction of Aimee, Dracus and Bolt. They are three NOMAD’s that wonder the world and don’t really belong with any one MC. Things become interesting between the 5 of them and again, this section is not for the faint of heart. While it is a loving environment, it might be a bit much for some to take in. Things are going great until Rage makes his move and shows up while the guys are tending to business.
All hell breaks loose, things get really messed up and we have people missing and others who withdrawal and we end up losing them as well. The book does end on an odd note and I can’t wait to see what comes next. When you read it, you’ll understand wanting the next piece of the puzzle.
I enjoyed the characters (some old ones to catch up with as well) but again please heed the warnings lists about it being graphic in sections.
Elizabeth, thank you again for another twisted but loving book in your wonderful MC world!!!
