My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A soul shred to pieces and the horror relived, again and again, the darkness that absorbs all the light in your world, so much that the only course of action is to take matters into your own two hands!
Kill List raises goosebumps on our skin, it is obvious that the author has conducted some diligent research to get those novel ideas for murder and the various ways forensic prints can be erased from the site of murders and it is quite a commendable work. Surely not for faint-hearted, Kill List definitely veers into the dark side of a human psyche so fair warning to readers who have problems with gory murder, the deaths are absolutely horrific and grisly.
Emilia is happy and celebrating her newfound love and partying with friends when the unthinkable happens; abducted, gang-raped, abused, tortured, and left to die within an inch of her life. With the warning of dire consequences to loved ones ringing in her years, she has no choice but to remain silent and keep putting one foot in front of the other and struggle for breath every single day. However, the rage that consumes her is not dying down, and a chance meeting with one of them reignites the burning fire to crush and destroy the high and the mighty of the society who were the perpetrators of the gruesome crime, and as she relives the horror on the dark web the line of moral rights and wrong becomes blurred and Emilia pushes herself to be an avenging dark angel and ruin all 7 of her rapists.
Told from multiple points of view, the revenge drama had me glued to its pages even when a few of the murders made me squirm and take deep breaths. It was interesting to see that with each murder being committed, Emilia’s inner peace gets destroyed which I felt was exceedingly well-done. Emilia becomes a killer to continue living and she’s definitely not a hard-core murderer with no conscience, so each act of revenge takes a piece of her reinforcing that revenge also comes with a price.
The author delivers the story point-blank and, in some instances, brutally but as the subject matter is such, the reader is left with a lump in the throat reading about Emilia’s struggle and I hadn’t a clue how everything was gonna gets tied up as the high stakes game takes on twisty new turns with her family being targeted. The climax had those C’MON moments which were absolutely thrilling and with that ending, I believe there’s more to come from Emilia.
Shattering…mind f**ked ☔☔☔☔☔
Many thanks to the author for a chance to read and review this book. All opinions are expressed voluntarily.
Emilia has a secret hobby; killing.She’s hunting the Dark Web gamers who stole her life. The players underestimated Emilia’s will to survive and her thirst for vengeance. It’s her game now. Her rules, her kill list, and she has an unlikely accomplice teaching her how to get away with murder. But revenge has a price that’s both breathtaking and disturbing. Will Emilia overcome betrayal and tragedy to settle the score and end the game?
