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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wicked Ruin (Se7en Sinners, #3) by S.L. Jennings OMG The beginning of this book, what a ride and what a surprise, the person trying to help Eden I was mega shocked at there identity, ultimately helping Eden, even if it was like in a totally batshit crazy way.
Like that was totally overkill but the sentiment was there.
And again OMG!!!! I’m agog this cannot be a good thing in the long run.
So This book turns everything on its head, Karmas a bitch and now its Eden struggling to keep Her legion to her self and he is definitely not the Demon she has fallen for.
“L is dead. Samael is dead. I was remade—reborn into what I was before. The very thing I’ve hated and rebelled against for centuries. The great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. However, the great dragon was not called the Devil, as man believed. He was called Legion. “I am the Legion of Lost Souls. And I have risen once again.”
What we have here and now is a much darker Legion one struggling to control his baser instincts and his lost souls are ultimately draining him dry and poisoning his whole self.
What else here, Well Nico is back and I’m loving the friendship between him and Eden.
Adriel is now flesh and I’m really not liking her that much, actually, if I’m honest not at all.
and we also get to see more of the Watcher as well as there hiding out at her mansion, like neutral ground and all.
Lucifer here is a much more complex character, still playing his games but we see a deeper version of himself, which was definitely enlighting.
This instalment was all about the upcoming battle and almost seems like a hopeless cause with the odds stacked against them.
So “Wicked Ruin” as in previous books ends with a cliffy and it’s a biggie.
The car crash rush to the finish was horrifying and tragic to behold and I was glued to the very last line, it was so riveting I couldn’t look away.
I will leave you with this quote from Eden and this pretty much sums up the whole ending here.
This is what I was created for. To betray. To destroy. To kill. I am the weapon to make Legion fall to his knees. And I’ve just been activated.
What a finish I need that next book like NOW!!!!
