Ravage is a compelling, twisted and addictive dark read and another great instalment in the Scarred Souls series.

‘I had survived the massacre that took my family, but lying here, I realised that the years spent away in hiding I was simply existing. And it took a monster to revive my heart. It took a killer to touch my soul.’ – Zoya

It all started with RAZE; my beautiful broken Bratva, it continued with REAP as we saw two notorious Russian crime families unite in the name of forbidden love, and now Tillie has given us our most tortured character of all in RAVAGE.

At only 12-years-old, Valentin swore to protect his 4-year-old sister from the monsters in the night. Having been subjected to neglect due to a junkie Mother, Valentin and Inessa were two forgotten children living out their days in an orphanage; a place that should have protected them.

They came in the night, the woman in black and the night wraiths that took innocent children away never to be seen again. Valentin head the whispers and for many months managed to thwart the gang by hiding in a secret place with his little sister, until one night his plans where scarpered.

Subjected to severe abuse and slavery and drugged with a manmade cocktail of narcotics that made him obey the most repulsive commands, Valentin became just another number in the underworld of death, that number was #194.

Brutal, scarred and a walking nightmare, #194 also had a secret; he never forgot who he was and what his Mistress has put them through, and one day promises revenge on them all. One last mission, one last hit and the promise of freedom may be in vain but it’s all he can hope for, for his sister’s sake – anything to get her out of the clutches of the Master.

Zoya Kostava is a Georgian princess. Having watched her family die in a massacred attack and barely getting out alive herself, she has been living in fear and secrecy her entire life. When she hears that her only blood relative and favourite Brother has been found alive and in the company of the enemy, Zoya puts her own safety aside as she seeks out to meet him. Her plans go awry when a fearsome scarred monster captures her spying on his new target.

#194 puts the strange girl through her paces, knowing that one day soon she will break and tell him who she really is, but he never expected her story to resonate so deeply with him.

Two scarred and lost souls find each-other in the most terrifying and darkest of circumstances, as they fight for the freedom they never had and a love believed forever lost to them both.

RAVAGE was another compelling, dark, brutal and twisted read that still managed to capture an innocent and deeply passionate light. Wherever Tillie Cole goes, I am sure to eagerly follow as again, I cannot recommend this series, or her work highly enough.

The Bratva and Georgian fight is on but things are starting to take an exciting and detrimental turn, all in the name of love, brotherhood and ultimately…. Revenge.

I can’t wait for Inessa’s story, coming next!
