Born in Darkness (Mafia Elite #3)Born in Darkness by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Born in Darkness is the third book in the Mafia Elite series. I’ve been really enjoying this series so far, as well as other books by the same author such as the Gray Ghost series, so I was really excited to read it!
The Mafia Elite series centres around the Italian-American Mafia, in particular the young adults who are coming of age and finding their place in their dangerous but glamorous world. There are power struggles, deception and plenty of action!
Born in Darkness focuses on Emiliana and Stefano, who we’ve gotten to know in earlier books. Emiliana is great – she’s a keen cook and strong fighter, particularly when using knives. She’s still haunted by past traumas, but with her brother’s help has channelled this into training so she can defend herself. She does, however, continue to experience PTSD, particularly as it becomes clear that she’s still not entirely safe.
This is a real page-turner, with readers being given enough clues to try and figure out for ourselves who might be leaking information to those trying to harm Emiliana and her friends. There’s never a dull moment! And it’s fun catching up with the couples we’ve gotten to know in earlier books – Max and Lil, and Enzo and Sofia.
This is another five-star read for me! I would definitely advise readers to start at the beginning of the series, with No Way Out. I’d recommend it to fans of action-packed romance!
