Review: The Predator by RuNyx
“One day, I’m going to carve your heart out and keep it as a souvenir. I promise.”
I’m speechless. Word-less. Shook-eth.
Oh-my-god I loved The Predator so much. The characters, the writing – everything.
I. Love. This. Book.
I could read books – plural – about Tristan Caine and Morana. Forever and on and on.
And that ending, that beautiful, stunning, smack-you-in-the-face ending. I’m dead over here. Giddy with pure book love, this story! Don’t sit on RuNyx, move her to the top of your tbr. I swear you won’t regret it. Her books. . .knock me over with a feather. So. Good.
I felt all the feels, my heart was racing, my stomach in knots. It was pure reading magic. I stayed up waaay too late and woke up waaay to early, finishing it as quickly as I possibly could simply because I couldn’t look away, I couldn’t get enough.
Morana Vitalio is without a doubt one of my favorite characters of ever. All at once, so staggeringly alone, lonely and yet incredibly strong, intelligent, brave. I loved her progression as a character. And her dynamic with Tristan Caine is just pure perfection.
Tristan Caine. I adore him. Completely. Utterly. Adore. Favorite H I’ve read in ages, hands down. So darkly damaged, so quiet in his rage, so unbreakable, but also so vulnerable to his own set of loneliness. The layers of this man, my god, the layers.
Together these two characters are the heart beat of the story. There are other things going on, mafia magic, a mystery twenty years in the making, and side characters that deserve their own story told, and thankfully RuNyx has done just that, but the heart beat is every. thing. Seriously.
I can’t wait to read more. I’m addicted. Enraptured.
Can not recommend enough. All the stars. All the love. Read it. Just, go read it.
“It was the most beautiful kiss she could have ever dreamed of, the most untainted she’d ever imagined from him, with a softness she’d not thought him capable of. With his intensity, with his blazing eyes, the silent promises had been of devouring. This wasn’t devouring. This was savoring.”
What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object in the field of death?
In the dark underbelly of the mob, Tristan Caine has been an anomaly. As the only non-blooded member in the high circle of the Tenebrae Outfit, he is an enigma to all – his skills unparalleled, his morality questionable, and his motives unknown. He is lethal and he knows it.
As does Morana Vitalio, the genius extraordinaire daughter of the rival family. What Caine does with weapons, Morana does with computers. When a twenty-year old mystery resurfaces, Morana infiltrates Caine’s house, intent on killing him, unaware of a tie that binds them together. Hate, heat, and history clash together with unexpected sparks.
But something bigger, something worse is happening in their world. And despite their animosity, only they can fight it down.
