Ashley and Jaquavis have proven themselves once again in this sequel. It will glue you to the seat your in and pull you right in. I got lost in the world of Diamond family and the murder mamis. Straight from page one you are refreshed with a quick recap and then thrusted right into the story to the very shocking end. I don't read and tell so get it for yourself and i promise you won't be disappointed. Can you say Classic. Well, I can so get ready to ride with the Cartel on another heart thumping ride through another page turner. Great jobs once again to these two fantabulous authors.

So Salty.....

What I thought was a great read, turned out to be such a disappointment. I got pass the errors such as the songs that were mentioned that weren't even out, or the fashion worn that wasn't in style at that time period, etc. But when I got to the ending I felt totally hoodwinked. I deserve a refund.

I don't want to give away or shed too much light on why I was so heavily disappointed for obvious reasons. However, on the flip side, we do learn in depth about the Murder Mama's. We learn how they were created and the history behind Miramor's cold blooded heart.

I am anxiously awaiting part three. Since none of my questions were answered in part 2, I guess I'll sit here and twiddle my thumbs until next time.

A message to the dynamic duo........ You have me MAD! Therefore you get 2 stars from me. So Half a**ed!

Okay, so the writing was all right...I was getting into the story, and enjoying all the twists and turns and character developments. I was shaking my head at the idiosyncrasies - come on, there was a lot of stuff that was supposed to have happened years and years ago, and the characters are wearing skinny jeans? At that time, flare legs were in style. And there are songs the characters listen to, and slang they use, that weren't around in that time frame either. I truly believe that if a writer is going to do flashback scenes, their history better be on point! And shame on their editor for not catching that either!

But anyway, the reason I'm only giving this 2 stars is for the ending. As I said, the storyline in and of itself was pretty good, full of drama, I was excited to get the end, and then...

***WARNING!!! SPOILERS BELOW!!! DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!***

The writers dropped the ultimate cop-out ending on their readers with the ending. It was all a dream...are you frigging serious?!? That stopped being a creative ending back at the turn of the century - the turn of the 20th century, that is! You don't do something like that, especially if you're going to do a part 3. And okay, maybe I could see them having part of the book being a dream, but I've already read part 3 - you don't go and basically re-write the whole story with completely different plot twists and ending just because part 2 was supposed to have been all a dream in Miamor's head. Big cop-out, big waste of reader money, I am so unamused!

Format: Paperback
I can't believe what I was reading. For the series to be about a Cartel they were soft as hell!. A lot of what they did after the father died made no sense. And everyone was aware of how things should go. I think the two authors weren't in sync. In one paragraph something would be said and in the next chapter something would be written about that same subjust but as though it wasn't mentioned earlier. And the worst of it all. Miamor dreampt all of what happened in book 2? Are you kidding me. All 4 books were all of the place when it came to the deaths of Meca, Money, Carter and Breeze. There were 3 different endings. Meca, Breeze and Carter all died more than once (oh yeah a dream) and on more than one ocassion. And Money was never dead. But bodies are actually laying in open caskets? You have to be kidding. This is poor story telling at its best!!!!! Readers you are going to be all over the place...story lines, and deaths are completley out of order. Let's not forget they are in a war "again" during the time of Breeze's "first" death. But Miamor was able to give the mother a drink of wine at the homegoing and she had only met her once?! Like I said this book was out of order and irritating to read. They are the Cartel. Their father led the largest criminal racket in Miami and they acted as if they had no enemies, even when the war was called off. I refuse to read another book by these authors. A message to the authors: if you are going to write as a team - PLEASE know what the other is writing and if you are going to add your work, make it relate. The series lacked quality in writing The story didn't have to be real to be quality.

The book was very well written, I recommend that you buy it if you only want to know more about the murder mammas and how thay came about other then that none of your questions are answered from the first book you can skip strait to book three. I think this book was just about money because after reading this it clearly should not have been a trilogy but I will be buying the third book because I do like these two authors and want to know whats going to happen next.
