I’ve become a queen to the forsaken, a leader to thieves, and the wife of a man who instills fear in all who cross his path. He was the husband I didn’t want. Now, I can’t fathom life without my king.
I should’ve been ready for anything. Like the caterpillar that feeds on poison during metamorphosis, I was raised in the dangerous world of cartel crime. But nothing could’ve prepared me for Cristiano de la Rosa, his brother’s poison, or the Calavera cartel.
This is still a story about a love strong enough to topple households, unite enemies, and divide brothers. Resilient enough to bring down those who would try to destroy it . . . and selfless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice.
But I was warned, and so were you. Death’s day always comes. This time, it will find what was once a caterpillar is now a butterfly—and hell hath no fury like the White Monarch.
El Gallo… be still my beating heart! He was EVERYTHING!!! After all, he showed us what love really is: I’d die for you not would you die for me? Cristiano is a force to be reckoned with. In and outside the bedroom. He is fierce, loyal, compassionate and determined in all things.
The imagery and the symbols in this series add so much depth and meaning. I was gripped from the first page and held my breath until the last. Even when I finished the story, the characters continue to live on in my mind. It is a testament to Jessica Hawkins’ writing that she created such incredible characters and a story that captures the imagination and never lets go. The ending was unexpected and yet everything I could have wanted. If I could give this more than five stars I would. It was spectacular!
