This is one book you do not want to miss.
When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.
Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for ages 18 and over.
There is no denying this is Tillie Cole’s most messed up and crazy book to date. Which is saying something considering I’ve read all Tillie’s dark and twisted books. I also don’t think I’ll ever be able to see or hear anything Alice In Wonderland related without thinking of this book straight away. So get ready. Drink the potion and fall down the rabbit hole. Tick tock. It’s time for tea.
I loved young Ellis and Heathen. Their romance started so pure and sweet and innocent, but that was quickly taken from them. Their journey becoming one of devastating heartbreak and pain. I felt physically sick at times. It was a really hard story to read at times, but I needed to see it through to the end, see every horrific moment, every scar, every twist, every act of depravity, all to reach the gratifying times of well deserved revenge Dolly and Rabbit sought out.
I had no idea how this book would end. I was on the edge of my seat. There were so many possibilities of where the book could take these two characters, and I was terrified for them. A traditional HEA would not do this story justice, and I think the author definitely chose the right path for this book to end on. And now it’s over… I really REALLY hope we get to see more from various secondary characters in the future. This could ideally turn in to a hugely addictive series of standalones. There are some very fascinating stories waiting to be told, so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that Tillie Cole finds the inspiration to bring those stories to life.
