(A Deadly Virtues Prequel)


They told them they were evil.
They told them they were possessed by demons.
They told them that darkness ran in their veins.

Holy Innocents Home for Children is a haven for orphaned boys who have nothing and no one. The priests watch over them, educate them, raise them in the family of the church.

Except for some.

Seven of the orphans are no ordinary boys. They attract the attention of the priests for their acts of violence, of bloodlust. The priests realize these boys are drawn to the darkness.

And the priests are no ordinary priests. They are the Brethren, a secret sect who believe themselves on a divine mission to seek out evil in the boys in their care. Seek it out, and then drive it out.

The seven have fallen from God’s grace. And the Brethren will cleanse their blackened souls…

Dark Contemporary Romance novella. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

    Omg....words. I. Do. Not. Have. Words. I read dark. I love dark. This was DARK. It was hard to read at times, and yet I was captivated. This group. Their desires. Their specific proclivities are a dichotomy of intriguing and horrific. I am interested to see how Tillie Cole is going to tell these stories, and how she is going to integrate romance it this depraved stories. This story will be hard. There will be triggers for people, but if you love DARK, you are going to love this. I’m down for the whole epic ride.

    I am so thrilled that Tillie gave us this prequel to the series. I love that we got to be introduced into this world this way. This book will floor you, shock you, consume you, and leave you shook.....all in the best way possible.  "They told them they were evil. They told them they were possessed by demons. They told them that darkness ran in their veins." I truly feel that we wouldn't be this invested in a series if we hadn't got to see where they all started. Witnessing the beginning of it all was genus on Tillie's part, we understand, we sympathize, we hunger for more now.  "The attack on Luke, Gabriel realized then, was the genesis of the Fallen. The sin that set them on this dark and painful path."  I love dark books, romantic suspense is my jam, and this is that times eleventy billion. It's so much more than I was expecting. I am buckled into this journey, and I'm reading for what comes next. Bring it on Tillie, Bring it on.

    This is going to be short and quick. The Fallen: Genesis is a twisted, intense and excellent prequel to The Deadly Virtues series. I can already tell that The Deadly Virtues series is going to take me on one hell of a ride. My mind is spinning with anticipation and I can’t wait!!
  • Must read!

    ***5 Stars*** When Tillie Cole announces that she’s releasing more dark words into the world, my dark, deviant little heart gets all kinds of twitterpated and I start making grabby hands at it and this one is going be all kinds of dark goodness! This is a true prequel and it lays out the foundation, evolution and those little details of the Fallen that not only has me dying for Raphael, the first book in the series) but also has me agreeing that it MUST be read before diving into the series. True you could probably bypass it, but don’t. As for the characters themselves, I want to say soooo much, but won’t. But what I will say is that I’m absolutely fascinated and intrigued by all of them and cannot wait to get deeper inside their heads. So all that’s left to say is… Bring on the Fallen!!! ~ Copy provided by Ardent Prose PR & voluntarily reviewed ~
