Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole
Author: Tillie Cole
Rating: 5 Stars
Synopsis: The Hangmen are back and there are more evil fucks out there for them to take on. The nasty pedophile cult fuckers seem to have been silenced for good but they managed to empower some even crazier white trash skinheads on their way out. For AK and the rest of the psycho trio the thought of what that Nazi poser Meister is doing to the remaining cult bitches in his backwards ass brothel town are bad enough without even adding in the knowledge that they have Phebe, the club VP Ky's wife Lilaha's sister. AK can't stop thinking about the red headed cult slut and he knows he can't just leave her to such a fucked up fate. After everything he's seen in his life, first as a soldier in the US Marine Corps then as SGT at Arms for the Hangmen, after everything heartache he's caused in his miserable life. He thinks saving this one bitch might be his only redemption.
Meanwhile Phebe's pretty much given up any hope of ever getting out of Meister's grasp. The pain she has endured has crushed her spirits. She no longer believes there is any good to be had from this world when all she has ever known is it's evil. She lives with many regrets but one more than all others, one that haunts her dreams and leaves her begging for the potion. The potion Meister injects in her veins that makes everything feel better. Sometimes through her haze she see's a pair of kind brown eyes. They belong to a devil's man. A devil's man with angel eyes that showed her kindness and mercy when she believed none existed. All Phebe wants to do is sink into the haze with the vision of those eyes.
Review: Tillie Cole has done it again. Her Hangmen series never seems to disappoint when it comes to the promise of hard hitting action, emotional trauma and gut wrenching heartache, all laced with an undercurrent of true love conquering all. Each novel in this series has been well crafted to this formula but I don't believe any more so than Damnable Grace.
AK and Phebe's story is one of the most tragic and gut wrenching of any so far. Yet it's also somehow one of the ones with the most hope.
From the very beginning you can see that this will be a darkest before dawn story. One that will lead you in to past and present trauma with a promise of bright sunshine to come.
Being the 5th book in the series has given Ms. Cole plenty of time to set up backstory and context for these characters, and I applaud her for the way she dove into those stories so fully and wholeheartedly in this book. Finally revealing in full context who these people where and what made them tick while simultaneously weaving in the other novels both past and future.
This story gave me all the feels. I had so many emotions from start to finish. There was suspense, horror, disgust, sadness, warmth, lust, happiness, more sadness, more horror and disgust, some more sadness, and then some more warmth, lust and happiness. It was a an entire gambit of feelings and they ran together seamlessly. Once again I was blown away by an addition to what is probably my all time favorite MC Romance series ever.
I can't say enough about this book without getting into spoiler territory so I won't even try. I'm just going to end this by saying thank you Tillie Cole. Thank you for creating this world and pumping out book after book of enjoyable content within it. I truly can not wait to dive into the I Do Babe novella and I anxiously await book 6.
