Listen, at the beginning of the story I got the feel good vibes as Axl, a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks, meets Monica, a pretty black girl who is smart and nice. They are inseparable until that fateful night. That’s when the story turned dark. After Axl and Monica lose their virginity to each other, he returns home floating on cloud nine.
That was short lived because when he entered his home, there were gunmen there holding his family hostage. Long story short, Axl’s alcoholic degenerate gambler of a father trades him to the man he owes money to in order to clear his debt.
From there he is held captive, beaten, abused and turned into a lethal killing machine. The story builds from there. I won’t get too far into the plot because I don’t want to give away key elements.
The storyline is great and the way the author spins the tale keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end. I hope each brother will have their own story, as well as Monica’s brother. This was my first book by this author and I look forward to reading more of her work. Kudos for a job well done.
It's many years before he is able to see any of them again. Monique doesn't know why Axl has left her and doesn't want to her about him from his brothers after his father lies about why he's gone. Axl is put through great torture to become the snatcher of souls and is determined to make his tormentors pay. I hope we get more of Axl and Monique. This read was recommended by Unique Words, LLC. I'm ready for another Sonja B. book.
I struggled through this book, and I should kick my own butt for actually finishing it.
I think the easiest - and less taxing way to write a review for this hot mess - is with bullet points (well, okay... asterisks):
* GRAMMAR AND EDITING ISSUES GALORE! Typos, wrong words, run-on sentences, weird sentence structures, oh my! I got a headache rereading stuff and trying to figure out what the author meant. Even if the grammar issues were at a minimum, the writing was clunky and just plain ugly.
* Continuity issues and feats of unbelievable time twists: If Axl impregnated Monica when they were in high school, why is their daughter a young girl not even in school yet, when it's around 10-15 years later? WTH? With that, there is a scene in which Monica takes the kid for a bath, yet a few sentences later, she's still in the kitchen talking with everyone else?
* When Monica's view is introduced, the reader gets a huge info dump about her life right after Axl breaks into her house. That's a lot of stuff going on in her head in the short time she's tussling with dude on the floor.
* The one sex scene was gross, and not sexy AT ALL. Yuck!
* While Axl and his kid were probably the best characters in the book, the rest of the folks were two-dimensional cartoon characters. The mob guys were buffoonish, and Monica's drug-dealing brother came across as a second-rate DMX in a third-rate movie.
The only thing I liked about this book was the cover.
