Surviving Wrath is the third and final heart-pounding instalment in The Deadliest Sin Series by Gwyn McNamee. So, before I go any further with my review, I am going to make a confession. I HATE writing reviews for Gwyn McNamee’s books- why you might ask? Because her stories are so #@%$*!^ good that I really have trouble coming up with the words to do them the justice they deserve, that’s why!
ARGGGGH this book flung me around on an emotional rollercoaster ride- right from the beginning. The story starts off with a bang, and we jump right into the action. I wanted to hit the pause button, but I was too afraid that I’d miss something. So the high-octane adrenaline fueled action pulled me in and then held me captive while everything unfolded.
We’ve been on quite a journey since starting out on book #1. So much has happened, the books really feel much longer than the novellas they are- and I mean that in a good way. While the books may be short in length, they are in no way lacking in content!
This book is part of a series and is not meant to be read as a standalone. You won’t get the full impact of the story, or series, if you don’t read the books in sequence. Each book is told from a different perspective, which really helps build the tension, suspense, and impact of each individual book as well as the overall storyline…
After the climactic ending to the previous book, I really though I knew where the story was headed- but I definitely should have known better! Gwyn McNamee always twists things in a direction I don’t fully expect. There are some things that happened in this book with certain characters which had my heart in my mouth- and left me cursing out Ms. McNamee. And, if she is reading this, she will know exactly what I’m referring to! I had expectations, and then Ms. McNamee snuck up behind me and smacked me over the back the head and said think again B*@%h!…..And I have to admit now, in hindsight, and after numerous readings- it was the best direction to take the story!
So, how far would you be willing to go to protect, or avenge, a loved one? Would you let wrath lead you? Would you fall into its bloody embrace? This story explores this concept- and we see what happens when a monster and a dragon go head to head (and no, this isn’t a paranormal story)- just read it and you’ll know what I mean!
There is sooooo much more I would like to say, but I don’t want to spoil it for you. So, if you like compelling, dark, and intense reads- with complex characters and multi-layered storylines- then this is definitely the story/series for you! What are you waiting for? Dive in!
Thank you, Gwyn McNamee!
