ARC Review! Ravage By Tillie Cole

Taken by the Jakhua Clan as a teen, 194 was stripped of his name, his identity, and his freewill, meticulously honed to be a ruthless, soulless killing machine, trained solely to spill blood and stop hearts. This is a role he resents with every fiber of his being, but one he embraces to gain back the precious leverage the Georgians wield as their weapon of control: his younger sister, 152.

Mzia Kostava is in shock. After fleeing her mafia family's massacre in Georgia as a child, Mzia lives in secret, hiding from her enemies in the dark shadows of Manhattan. At age twenty-five, believing all her family is dead, word reaches Mzia that her brother Zaal is very much alive... and living with their family's greatest enemy: the Volkov Bratva in Brooklyn.

Yearning to be reunited with her beloved Zaal, Mzia risks her safety and anonymity for the brother she had mourned since childhood. But just as she reaches Zaal's apartment, Mzia is seized and taken captive by a strange man, who is strong, dark, and brutal... Unyielding, he demands her utter obedience as he locks her away in darkness. He is highly skilled in torture and inflicting pain, and demands to know everything about her brother Zaal and everything about her. He is a man that'll do anything to get what he wants.

Sometimes love requires the sacrifice and betrayal of those held most dear. But is finding one's true love worth committing the greatest sacrifice of all?

Excuse me but if any of you happen to find all the piece of my heart that has been shattered by Ravage, please return them to their owner, me.  Each book in this series has torn at my emotions, made my heart race, break, and call out in pain, but none have completely destroyed it like Ravage did.  If you have read Raze and Reap (if you haven’t you really need to because not only are they so good but they set up for Ravage), you know the darkness that is in these books, the pain, the heartache, the need for blood and revenge.  Ravage takes all of those emotions to the next level.  Not only is 194 just as if not more damaged by his situation, he is also trying to protect someone who he loves in the process.  He will do anything to make sure his sister, 152, is protected as much as he can. 

When Mira finds out her brother Zaal is still alive she is ecstatic, well that is until she learns he is marrying the enemy.  She doesn’t know that Zaal and Talia have a connection that she can’t dream of, that Talia healed Zaal.  So while she is processing this information she is taken by 194 and this is where things get to be darker than the previous books.  Some of the scenes may be hard for readers, but it is what adds to those feelings this series are known for.  While being held, Mira is tortured by 194.  He is trying to get answers but she refuses to break.  I know I would have broken way before she did if that had been me.  While going through hell she sees a connection to what her brother went through before being saved.  Slowly Mira and 194 form a connection, one based on pain, hope, trust and love, but when the unthinkable happens what would 194 do to protect Mira?

Ravage will destroy a piece of your soul by the time you are finished, but this destruction you will welcome.  Your heart will break, and heal itself only to repeat the process more than once.  You will cry for not only 194, but Mira, Luka, Zaal, Talia, Kisa and 152.  You will want to take away their pain, and the ever present need to kill.  I am almost scared to read 152’s book, after how much Ravage broke me I can only imagine her story is going to be a hundred times worse.  So grab your tissues, tell everyone to leave you alone and to not disturb you because once you start Ravage you will not want to put it down, prepare for the emotional roller coaster that Ravage will take you on.
