Welcome to the Den…
Seven years ago, Niklaus “Red” Volkov was offered an opportunity, one that would give him the ability to even the score with the Albanian mobsters that had tortured him for days and took the life of the only girl he’d loved. But that gift came with strings…
Molded into the perfect soldier, Niklaus joined an elite group of mercenaries, loyal to a mysterious man known only as The Kingmaker. He willingly paid the price for means to fulfill the vendetta that plagued him each day.
Vengeance was all he knew…
And death was all he lived for…
Until it wasn’t…
Oh man, my heart broke for Niklaus during the first few chapters of this book, even more so when he found out why he was tortured, but nothing could prepare me for the anguish he felt when it came to what happened to his girl Sarah.
He gets the opportunity to seek revenge and retribution against the Albanians, and years later he's almost done with mission. He wasn't planning on Reagan being anything more than a one- or two-night stand at the most, but things don't always play out the way we'd like. As much as I loved Niklaus' character, flaws and all, I wish we got more on Reagan; she was the type of character who doesn't leave much of an impression (at least to me). I didn't find anything remarkable about her. But with this being the beginning of a new series, hopefully we'll get to know more over the course of the subsequent books. I loved that we got to see Mischa and Lauren throughout this story, and I'm looking forward to reading more in this series as they become available.
