The Ripple Effect - J.A. Saare

I just….wait….I mean….*gasp!!* But....but....*gasp!!*

“There is always a price to pay…
Rhiannon Murphy visited the future, witnessed hell on earth and made choices to change things for the greater good. Unfortunately there are consequences for her actions, the penalties for her interference possibly more than she can bear. Determined to sever her debt with a fallen angel, she pushes everything aside, focusing on locating Marigold Vesta’s resting place.
Until death comes knocking at her door.
When Disco’s maker arrives in New York, he resents Rhiannon on a level she can’t begin to comprehend. Yet Marius isn’t her most dangerous adversary, not by a long shot. Marius’s sire -- a half-demon -- is determined to see the necromancer who stunned the vampire world on her knees. If she won’t bend, he’ll do everything in his power to make her break. No price is too high, meaning no one is safe -- including Disco and Paine.
Dealt a blow from which she can never recover, Rhiannon turns to the only person who can help her: the fallen angel who is relying on Rhiannon to save her soul. Bartering with a creature from Heaven is probably just as dangerous as starting a war with a demon from Hell, but with nothing to lose it’s no longer about life or death.
It’s about getting even.”

Though I normally do some light cursing on my blog, I’m about to be more “descriptive” in my use of cursed words.

J.A. Saare: I have this to say to you-holy shit do you know how to take a genre that everyone has grown accustomed to and just body slam it on the floor, making it tap out and cry like a bitch. Shit.

The third installment in the Rhiannon’s Law series is more…don’t want to use action packed…what word do I want to use?...brutal? Unforgiving? Raw? It’s still action-packed, but in a more primal and visceral way. It is everything the previous two books are and, of course, more.

Like with the previous reviews done with the first two books, Saare has left me in the little pickle where I cannot talk about this story without giving everything about this book away. Let me say this though: Every word and sentence, paragraph and page, will leave you gasping for breath. It is dark and beautiful, sensual and horrific. This story is fore the person who doesn’t mind their heroine tougher than nails, only to be broken, and then in that brokenness, find the courage to face the demons who burned her world and kick the ever loving shit out of them. I will say that while reading this I found myself dropping several F-Bombs throughout the book. The end left my eyes watery and my jaw slacked with surprise and shock. Let’s just say that Rhiannon, once again, proves she is a total badass, however, her world is torn to sherds by a rusty cheese grater and now she and Disco will try their best to survive.

I really cant think of a way to end this review. Normally I say something witty…or well, try to say something witty that it. But this book series is just to amazing and I have no snark to give, it’s that awesome.

But I was snooping on Goodreads and stumbled across the title for the fourth book: Edge of Darkness. I cannot wait to see what happens. Does Rhiannon find Marigold Vesta’s body? What about the vampires and demons? Will the stop at nothing to get back at Rhiannon and Disco? Holy shit and what about Payne? Whatever happens…it will kick ass. Fuck yeah.
