The captivating third installment of the Se7en Sinners Series by New York Times Bestselling author, S.L. Jennings.
They say you’re never truly ready for Death until it’s staring you down, its cold, bony fingers outstretched and scratching against your fragile mortality. I thought I was ready the day my own mother tried to kill me. Perhaps I was ready the moment I was born. But as I peer into the chilling void of Death, breath shallow and heartbeat sluggish, I know that it can’t end like this. I was made for a purpose. And that purpose is Legion. Now that we’re fighting the battle of our lives, a war that could eliminate mankind, I see that purpose as clear as the whorls of dark ink etched in his skin. Realms are colliding. Alliances are forming. And my heart is being torn in two. I know the code the Se7en live by. Kill one to save a million. But maybe it’s not me who was meant to die. Maybe it’s the man I thought I could save…the man who once saved me. The man I was created to kill.

REVIEW

 

I’m DED. I’m DONE. I can’t even.  What am I supposed to do with my life now? I received an ARC and they’re formatted differently, so when I read the final sentence and thought there was more because my E-reader said “10 minutes” left in the book!!!!!! I almost threw it across the room.  I. NEED. MORE. Before I get into all the goodness, I’m writing this review whilst listening to S.L. Jennings Wicked Ruin playlist.  It is EVERYTHING, OH MY GOD.

Every single thing about this series is perfection.  I mean it. PER-FREAKING-FECTION.  The originality of this series, the plot, the intertwined stories, and the characters….it’s just flawless.  S.L.’s vivid imagination and descriptions are so on point that I could literally see everything that I was reading.  I’m IN the story but as an onlooker, do you feel me or nah?  When I read books, I’m either just reading and taking the story in which isn’t a bad thing but other times, I’m reading and I’m IN the book, feeling things, SEEING things and that’s when I know I’m knee deep into things.  I stated in my review for Born Sinner that this book is like Angels and Demons meets Suicide Squad mixed with a little Devil’s Advocate.  It’s genius, brilliant and a MUST READ for any PNR lover.  This book, this series will make you laugh, make you uncomfortable, make your lady or even your boy parts tingle, make you question things and may even make you cry.  It is the triple threat of books and I’m enjoying every single second of this ride.  I know some readers shy away from series but you are doing yourself a huge injustice by not indulging in these now.  If it were up to me, I’d tell S.L. to NEVER end it.  How can you?  If you’ve read them or you plan to, then you’ll understand exactly what I mean.  Stopping the series here or with another book won’t do their story justice.  That leads me to Hollywood.  I seriously wish they’d stop remaking or rebooting old classics.  STOP FIXING WHAT AIN’T BROKE.  Are producers that hard up that all originality is gone?  They gotta redo old shit?  I get the appeal but come on.  It’s getting old.  Here, Hollywood….I present unto thee, The Se7en Sinners.  Make a movie out of THIS.  THIS will be #1 for months.   I’m telling you! It’s THAT GOOD.  I swear if anyone even attempts to TRY and touch John Hughes movies, I will raise hell.

I fell in love with Eden and Legion from the get go and watching them evolve, grow, struggle and come to terms with their path has been nothing short of amazing. You know what else I saw while reading this one? Unity. I don’t know if this was the underlying intention by the author but I felt it. Maybe because I’m more in tune with the state of our country right now but in a nutshell, Wicked Ruin shows us that people of a higher power, angelic and demonic alike can come together and set differences aside to fight hatred. DO NOT get me started on the others in the book.  Just, don’t.  Reviews of this book won’t cut it.  You need to read these.  NEED. You won’t be sorry.  I want to start over.  I want to go back to the beginning and fall in love again.  I’m jealous of those that get to read it for the first time.  SO. JEALOUS. I am all kinds of shouty capitals today, huh?  I can’t help it.  I LOVE this series and this author.

Wicked Ruin has ruined me.  It was so much darker, grittier and sexier and I loved the shit out of it.  I cannot WAIT for the next one.
