Hawk’s Cry: Satan’s Devils MC Second Generation #2 by Manda Mellett caught me completely by surprise. I thought I was getting a typical MC novel, but was pleasantly surprised. This story was about Hawk, or Eli, and his struggles. Hawk is VP of the Satan’s Devils MC, married to the love of his life, and has a child on the way. But he starts having doubts, is this really what he wants out of his life or was he just bred for this? Being a spitting image of his father, the ex-president of the club, it was always assumed Hawk would follow in his father’s footsteps. Maybe citizen life is better, where he can have a life of his own. But if he leaves, he will never be able to come back.
This story was refreshing to read. Though it dealt with some heavy content, I think it is important to bring light to mental health issues that everyone deals with. Depression and panic attacks do not discriminate and many times people don’t know how to rationally cope with these issues. Hawk began doubting himself, his life, and his choices. He didn’t know if he could live up to pressure and thought the only way to fix them was to get out. This story was a wonderful read and I look forward to reading other books by this author.
