We would embrace the darkness together…
Or not at all.
Xavier Blood is a man adrift. And a dangerous man without purpose is a lethal cocktail for disaster.
Mercy Reid has her revenge, but it’s not what her heart desires most.
After everything he’s been through, X doesn’t want to know where he came from, let alone who he was. Mercy has become his life, his anchor, his everything, so why should it matter?
Mercy thinks X is delaying the inevitable and pushes him to understand the thing he struggles with the most—his identity—but it might be one push too far in the wrong direction.
Who is Xavier Blood? Only one man has the answer and it’s the man Mercy wants to meet the least. The more X withdraws into his broken mind, the more desperate she becomes to save him, even if it means coming face to face with the man who tortured and conditioned her love to be a cold hearted killer.
The Watchman has the answers, but are they the ones she wants to hear?
I have been waiting for this one. And Amity Cross of course did not disappoint. This is a jaw dropping 5 star read.
When I stumbled across Amity and her series Royal Blood never in my life did I imagine that I would get such pleasure out of watching such a torturous and heart bending story unfold. Xavier Blood will cut you open and grab your heart raising it up in victory.
Devil’s Blood picks right up where we left Mercy and X. Mercy is struggling with where she and X go now. What road do they travel? She though revenge would make the torment inside her subside but all its done it open up new demons. Demons that X has forbid her to search for claiming he wants no part in finding out who he is or if he even had any kind of life prior to being held by the The Watchman. Mercy is his anchor. When the nightmares come he uses Mercy to ground him. Mercy isn’t satisfied. She knows the plague that lies ahead. She knows eventually the monsters living in X will consume him. The only person that holds the answers to X’s past are the two most disturbing creatures; The Watchman and Greggor. Mercy wants to dance with the devils. X is withdrawing from her after his worst nightmare yet. The only way to save “them” is to walk through the darkness together hoping they both come out alive.
Devil’s Blood is a complete mind frick and there is no doubt in my mind Amity was snickering at her fans and the torture she was able to unleash on us. You will not believe that The Watchman …… or the identity of Greggor is ……. And is that ……. ? Sorry I don’t do spoilers! This series is oh so good and I have a feeling … it isn’t over which leaves me screaming YES in the most twisted way imaginable! Don’t bother coming and saving my soul. I love every single second of this morsel.
