Book Review: Razing Grace

 
I was light, and I was pure. Until I wasn’t. 
Millie
I’m Millie Hart, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve dedicated my life to my Catholic faith. It was a part of me every step of the way. So when I decided to join a nunnery, no one in my family was surprised. I’m not sure at what point my life changed or where it went extremely wrong. My nightmares are becoming realities as my world starts to slowly tremble under the ground I’m presently shackled to. I was taken. Everything I thought I knew was about to rain down on me in drops of lies, deceit, and undiluted evil.
Tripp/Raze
I’m more machine than man. I’m the alpha and the omega of The Army, and the leader of The Sinister Six Masked Huntsmen. I live and bleed this life. The arms that raised me weren’t carrying love— they were carrying knives and AKAs. I’m agent 000, the executioner, and the damn devil who walks in the flesh. No one can break through my hard shell— not even her.
*This is book Three in The Devil’s Own series but can be read as a standalone.


adobe-spark-3I was introduced to the Devil’s Own Series a few months ago. I love motorcycle club books, so I took a chance. I fell in love. This series is gritty, raw, and presents so much complex human emotion. This is not a series for the weak-hearted, or even perhaps the weak-stomached.

In this installment, we delve more deeply into the life of Millie, Melissa’s sister. Millie has spent her life devoted to the Catholic faith, until the fateful day she is taken. So much happens to Millie during her captivity that her entire self is changed. She can no longer identify with the person she was, nor does she really know the person she is becoming.
This story is a pivotal installment in the story of Beast and Hella. The Army played a major role in both of their lives, shaping them into terrifyingly violent men. Upon finding their release from The Army, they found a group of men that accepted them and helped them find family. In Razing Grace, I found that there is so much more to EVERY person’s story than I’d even imagined before! There are twists and turns, intricate knots, and so much in their past that it was difficult to find my way through it all.
Overall, this story was a great addition to the series. I love how it explored all the different aspects of not only human relationships, but how the events of life can affect us so deeply. The characters were raw and imperfect, but presented some of the strongest bonds I’ve read.
Be cautioned, there is a significant amount of violence and events which may be questionable to most people’s sense of morality. The events work well into the story, and are appropriate in the context, but they may be difficult for some to handle.
