Eulogy by Rachel Van Dyken
Publication Date: February 20th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
All is lost.
I don’t recognize myself in the mirror anymore.
My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.
I’ve lost my soul.
She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.
Sixty lives are mine to take.
Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.
Sixty lives plus one more.
When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.
Only one person stands in the way.
She doesn’t realize I’ll kill her too.
I don’t own a heart.
And even if I did — I wouldn’t fall prey to its lies again.
I am Chase Abandonato.
Heir to a legacy of betrayal.
And I will kill them all.
Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.
A life for a life.
A soul for a soul.
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Blood in. No out.
WOW WOW WOW!
Words can’t describe how much I adored Eulogy (Eagle Elite, #9) by Rachel Van Dyken.
I’m actually a bit of a newcomer to this series.
Only reading RIP which is set in the same world but a spin-off to this.
It was actually that book which made me want to dip my toe in here and even though I have every intention now of rewinding and starting at the beginning I will say that this can totally be read as a stand-alone.
I had absolutely no trouble following along and I am so glad I gave this a go as I now have a whole new series to devour.
So Eulogy tells the tale of Chase Abandonato and following events in the previous books he is on a downward spiral to hell.
Chase is basically on a suicide mission to totally annihilate his dead wife’s entire family line after her unforgivable betrayal.
Gone is the joker and laid back funny guy and in his place is a man his nearest and dearest no longer recognise.
Luciana is the young attractive lawyer sent to work for the families.
Supplied by Nikolai AKA Dr Death, she is totally clueless about what she is getting herself involved in.
Afraid of her own shadow she is poles apart from what Chase is used to.
And as the files she needs are at Chase’s home this is where she needs to stay.
And with Chase threating to shoot her every five minutes, well let’s just say the poor girl is quivering in her boots.
So as I said earlier I adored this and this was a totally new side to chase, that even with my limited exposure to the series I noticed.
A much deeper and broken psyche.
Luc herself being a much more gentle soul is exactly what he needs to attempt to put the pieces of his soul back together.
Trying in her own way to take care of him and singing him to sleep.
I felt so much for Chase here and the more I read, the deeper I fell for this mismatched couple.
And as Luc fell deeper under Chase’s spell her ability to accept all the tarnished bits of Chase’s life and then embrace them wholeheartedly was entrancing.
Luc herself, Showing her love in such an extreme manner, especially considering her total un-exposure to the mafia lifestyle, was So courageous of her.
Sometimes it takes an extreme act to knock some actual sense into a stubborn, macho, head.
Make a certain someone wake up and notice whats there for the taking, right under there nose.
That is so what Luc accomplishes here with Chase though I don’t think that was her original intention.
It was just a much-deserved by-product of her totally selfless act.
So I think its safe to say I bloody adored Eulogy, everybody who loves a good mafia story needs to give this series a go.
I read this in one actual sitting, I found it that addictive.
I just now need to make the time to read the rest of this amazing series.
Which I will definitely make a serious priority.
