I had read the new book, Mesmers, and the read this one. I'm glad I did.
Macros and Grimm are both intense Alpha men but give them Mesmer powers and they are over the top with dominance.
I highly recommend this series!
As weird as it may be to some I'd recommend you to read it on the beach. Not because it's a light, easy beachy stuff (it's quite the opposite) but that would be the perfect environment for the Dark Hearts.
1) You'll have an excuse of being wet. As depraved and violent as some of its parts are there is some seriously hot and kinky sex that often left me gasping, licking my lips or questioning my sanity for liking it.
2) Every now and then you simply must take a break as the intensity of the emotions hit you straight in the gut and some of the twists leave your head spinning. A quick break for swimming and cooling your brain is a necessity... or a cold cocktail while you gather the courage to go back to the next scene.
3) The story wasn't 100% dark, there were some light and beautiful moments of emotional warmth and somehow I appreciated them even more in the turmoil of darkness and insanity. Still, sometimes you'll just need to feel the sun on your skin as you travel with Zorie, Grimm and Mavros.
Great writing, wonderful characters (no weak and whiny chicks), psychological horror and dark eroticism. The Dark Hearts series definitely converted me into Cari Silverwood's fan and I look forward to getting to know the rest of her work.
5 bloody brilliant and dark glowing stars,
These book is just dragged everything out with everyone having sex with multiple everyone's else that it got predictable and boring . I actually threw kindle on bed ....a lot. Fustruating. It was out of the evil sex bed of bad guys into bed of slightly ( not really) less evil bad guy . Then to the bed of a different evil bad guys bed ..oh and let's get betrayed and sexed up.by supposedly friend ..cause ...why not...Not no redeeming at all. I have it 2 stars cause I really wanted the female character to get revenge and castrate all these men ...sadly didn't happen😤
Wicked Ways slips between the cracks of any one specific genre, not quite paranormal, not quite contemporary. It IS dark though, full of dubious consent that teeters very much on the edge of non-consent but not quite rape. Z orie is a woman susceptible to a certain type of male, men known as mesmers. These men can induce mind-numbing lust in those women. They can command their actions through spoken words or thoughts, the closer they are the more powerful the compulsion.
Zorie falls into the clutches of Reuben, a not very pleasant man who uses his power to indulge the whims and sexual fantasies of himself and his perverted friends. He abuses Zorie in the most depraved and disgusting of ways and OMG there is something wrong with me because they are some of the most ridiculously hot scenes I've ever read! The worst thing about it all? Whilst she's in his clutches she loves every single second of it , she adores being used as a f***-toy, she loves having a man in every orifice whilst others look on and cover her in their come, she loves being put on display and treated like a whore. It's when she's no longer totally under his powers that the horror begins.
Reuben isn't the only mesmer that has Zorie in his sights. However Mr Black wants her for entirely different reasons.
Reasons that scare Zorie even more than his ability to control her mind. Add Grimm into the mix and you have both hope and heartbreak. Be warned, this story twists and turns you into knots. Just as it offers hope with one hand, it slaps you back down into the gutter, whilst you weren't looking, with the other. It offers salvation that turns out to be a prison. It f's with your mind just as much as those damn mesmer guys do. This was very much a book that I just didn't want to put down. I was sneaking reads of it at every opportunity, even when I shouldn't have been.
How do you ever get your mind around being violated in the most depraved of ways, when you also loved every second of it whilst it was happening?
Zorie, Zorie, Zorie how my heart bleeds for you. Ms Silverwood is the cruellest of authors to put you through such pain, suffering and heartache. Just as you escape the grasp of one deranged mad-man you fall into the clutches of two vile and evil mesmers. Who to trust, what to believe, how to save yourself? When your mind is so manipulated that up becomes down, left becomes right, how do you fight back? What can you do when you don't even know if your memories are real or imagined? Truth or lie, choice or compulsion?
The manipulation isn't confined to Zorie either, oh no. Just when you believe one thing, whiz, bam, boom, everything is flipped on it's head until you are so twisted up that your mind is just as messed up as it would be had a mesmer played with it. The worst of it is that you will delight in the depravity, get hot when you should be horrified, lust when you ought to loathe and desire when you would normally be disgusted.
Oh and those damned mesmers, one who offers salvation but at a price. Convinced that he can craft Zorie into a lethal weapon and extract revenge on the men who destroyed his daughter. Zorie isn't so convinced, not when she can free her mind but not her will. She might be cussing and brewing up a storm in her head, but only whilst her body is following every lurid instruction given to it. Then there are some so evil that you want to stab them in the eye with a rusty spoon, dig out their brains and dance amongst their entrails. No scrub that, it would be far too quick and easy a death. Lets dance on their guts first and then gouge out their brain.
Just when you think it's safe to go out on a killing spree....
After all the sugar honey iced tea that Zorie has been through, it's no small wonder that she decides mesmers need to become an endangered species. The actions of Reuben, Einar and Kaage enraging her to such a degree that she is now a woman on a mission to eliminate every 'collector' she can find.
A close call with one seemingly innocent mesmer finds Zorie questioning herself and her future. Despite all she has been through and all the wrong she knows Grimm and Mavros have done, she only seems to find peace when with them. But how long will that peace last when there are those determined to exact revenge on Zorie and whilst a particularly evil force is interested in Grimm. Adding into the chaotic mix is the bug slowly eroding away the Grimm that we all know and love and threatening to leave behind a monster.
Wicked Hunt has less of a mind-control aspect, than the previous two books, but it was just as dark and twisty. There are some very nasty scenes, ones where you'll need to turn on the lights and watch from behind a cushion. Then there are the plots, lies and schemes of so many different bad, or semi-bad, guys that, yet again, you will be left with your mind reeling, unable to put the book down.
Throughout the trilogy I had my hopes for Zorie's future, and I have to say I was not disappointed in the outcome. It was all that I could have wished for and more. But the journey there is far from easy, it will involve pain, suffering and heartache in equal measure for Grimm, Mavros and Zorie. There is no guarantee of a HEA, certainly not for all of them, and some tough choices will have to be made. However I'm fairly certain that, if you're read this whole trilogy, you won't be disappointed by how it ends.
