Find out in this final installment of the Broken Series where all the loose ends will be tied.
Review: What a wonderful surprise and much needed relief to see this title for the last book of this series, as there were definitely loose ends that needed to be tied up. If you’ve made it through the rest of this story, you will not want to wait to read the grand finale.
Nothing is easy for the characters in any of Kol’s stories, and before things wrap up here, they must still go through quite a bit more. Carter is still a prisoner and in the throes of undergoing yet more torture in order to break and turn him into the perfect slave.
But, the bigger issue here is the story coming full circle with Aaron being front and center. His pursuit of taking down Vincent and the other captors to free the others he knows are suffering, has put him at the top of the must-not-live list.
Vince shows us more of his predicament as he tries to come to terms with who he has become, whether he can continue on as such, and whether he even wants to. He shows us he is “almost” as much a victim as the boys he trains, and he makes one final push to save Aaron from the clutches of Eric who is just as much a monster as if he were doing the torturing himself.
And because things are never easy, it takes until the very end for the final loose end to be tied up, and of course, Kol does it with a bang. Even as satisfying as that all was, I was still left with quite a few questions, wanting to know how everything else wrapped up, but I am happy to say goodbye with my own little torture sessions playing out in my mind in regards to the details of everyone’s demise.
If you are looking for a story that will get your heartbeat running, one that is beautifully told even as it makes you cringe, you can never go wrong with one of Kol’s books. I highly recommend any of them and can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
