Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Rina Kent comes a new stand-alone dark romance about a villain and his new obsession.

I caught the attention of a monster.

I didn’t ask for it. Didn’t even see it coming.

But the moment I do, it’s too late.

Killian Carson is a predator wrapped in sophisticated charm.

He’s cold-blooded, manipulative, and savage.

The worst part is that no one sees his devil side.

I do.

And that will cost me everything.

I run, but the thing about monsters?

They always chase.

This book is a dark unconventional romance and contains themes that aren't to everyone's liking. Please check the author's note in the ebook for content warnings before listening.

Well dang

Story: 4.5 ⭐️
Steam: 6 🔥 see trigger warnings
Audio: 4.5 🎧

TRIGGER WARNING AT BOTTOM OF REVIEW! Also make sure you read the authors note before reading.

Not gonna lie, I was a little unsure at the beginning if the author could convince me to love Killian. I’m not sure how she did it but here we are lol. Is he a good guy? Not at all. Is he pretty funny and somehow lovable? Surprisingly, yes. I was hooked through this whole book and couldn’t put it down.

The only thing I didn’t really enjoy with this book was the cameo POV chapters from the main characters’ parents. Because this was my first book by this author, I had no idea who these people were. I had to look up her past work to verify that I was missing something. I think these chapters will be very nostalgic for longtime readers, but as a new reader they felt like unnecessary filler and it took me out of the story. Also some of the characters have names I didn’t love but I got over it eventually lol


Audiobook Performance: overall this was a great audio! Even though I love Sebastian, my man cannot do a very good British accent 😅

TRIGGER WARNING: noncon, dubcon, violence, suicide/suicidal thoughts, probably more this was dark 😂

A real dark romance full of triggers

It took me time to warm up to the story. I love dark romances, but this one started in the worst way possible: with a rape. Just after the mention of a suicide, and, maybe, a suicide attempt–though Glyndon denies it.

Even after all the justifications for Killian’s behavior–his psychopathy, his habit of getting what he wants, his upbringing, his friendships, etc.–I’m still not sure of what I think of him. His seduction was more like sexual assault, his love more like obsession. Despite the insistence that he couldn’t have any feelings, he still had some emotional moments with his family. He was a complicated character for sure, not really loveable though.

And how Glyndon can fall for him is still a mystery to me. She seems to like being ordered around–why not–and she has some experience with neurodivergent people, thanks to her older brother. And, of course, Killian is handsome and sexy. But the things he does to her… I pass, thanks.

And yet… it’s a dark romance, so I didn’t expect sunshine and rainbow. I took everything in stride, and focused on the characters’ arcs. And that was one eventful ride.

Killian is neurodivergent, bordering dangerous, yet able to restrain his impulses. He seems to have accepted it, even thrived. Yet, the more we learn about him, the more he appears complicated. His family’s history, and his relationships with his parents and his brother, seem to have shaped him, as much as his mental trouble. Past traumas influence his attitude and the way he interacts with people. It was interesting to see him get closure, move on, try to redefine his life and himself through his relationship with Glyndon.

Glyndon’s life isn’t that happy either. It’s hinted several time that she suffers from depression, and that she lacks self confidence. Is she weak though? Not really, she’s feisty. That’s the main reason Killian is after her: she refused him. She grows up too in the story. A lot happens to her, and she realizes things about her, about her family, about the people around her. She goes through a few deceptions too. Her arc is quite interesting in the end.

The narration was perfect. I was surprised by the male narrator who nailed Killian’s coldness and lack of empathy. The female narrator, new to me, did a good job with Glyndon. It was nice to have cameos of narrators who appeared before in other books by the same author. Not exactly the usual happily ever after, but a real dark romance full of triggers, lead by perfectly cast narrators.

Welcome to the next gen!

In preparation for the release of book 3 I’m listening to the audios for books 1&2 and *phew* this audiobook so good 🔥🫠

I was in the mood for a dark romance read and God of Malice definitely delivered! Killian is the epitome of a psychopathic controlling morally black MMC and Glyn is his new obsession.

I really enjoyed this book even though I haven’t read the books about “the parents”. I will admit I definitely referenced the character tree a lot, because this book really serves to introduce all the next gen characters (sometimes even more so than focusing on the main couple), but I live for that shizzle in a book series so it was fine by me! Plus I’m now very excited to read about who I think the next 5 pairings will be!

Glad I gave the audio a chance

4🌟

I’ve seen Multiple reviews of this book and whilst most people say amazing things somehow i just couldn’t bring myself to pick up the book and finish it.

Every time I started it I would always get a few pages in and think this isn’t the right time to read this book, it’s so dark right from the beginning , infact I think the beginning may be the darkest part of the book

I saw a review recently that said if you can get passed the first 2 chapters of the book you will be down then rabbit whole not wanting to get out - if your that person , sorry I can’t remember which reviewer it was but I want to give you a huge thankyou , I stuck past those first to chapters and then couldn’t stop listening . Picking up the audio for this was defiantly what helped me push through, I genuinely believed if I had tried to read the book again I would have given up and oh I’m so glad I’ve started this series.

Killian is definitely a phycopath but a loveable phycopath who makes an amazing mmc for Glyndon who has been free falling into a world of despair since her friend Devlin killed himself .

If your a fan of Rinas work then you will please to hear that some of your favourites appear in this book - well it is a next gen book after all

We have Levi and Astrid King from the Royal Elite series who are Glyndon parents.

We also get to see how the trauma Asher Carson and Reina Ellis suffered in their story has affected their relationship with Killian and how they are working to repair it.

A little separate review of the audio as a British person I really struggle with audio books where there is a heavy posh British accent , honestly no one I know speaks like that and I find it so unrealistic. I thought both narrators did an amazing job with this book and I throughly enjoyed it once I could get past the accent.
If you are someone like me who struggles with it please listen to a sample , if you can get past it this audio is so good.

Killian

One word! Killian!! His obsession with Glyn and the whole journey was surprisingly entertaining! Loved everything that went on his sick, yet the most genius mind

I finished it, that’s all I can say

What can I say, it’s fine, but defo won’t read again and I doubt I’d read anything by the same author again. The MMC makes no sense, he’s painted as an obsessive psychopath but then somehow develops feelings? And the FMC always justifies his actions towards her. Also why do her friends not care? All I will say is it’s an easy listen 🤷🏼‍♀️

P.s. when it’s MMC POV they do the voice for the FMC and vice versa, it’s so bad.

Honestly tried to enjoy this but no…

No real story line. Overly innocent female lead character. Lead male character supposedly 19 with all the ‘experience’ he has. Gangsters in school playground.

Unexpectedly good

I only found two major issues. For a person that HATES to repeat himself, Killian LOVES to repeat himself. And unfortunately the female character lacks depth. All in all great story, it kept me hooked.
