Of the devil’s flesh and bone, the prince is ready to claim his throne.

He’s got demons hungry for carnage.
Everything was going smoothly.
She’s the forbidden fruit we’re supposed to beware of, but something carnal is growing between us.

I’ve been waiting for this book for so long. I wanted more of the next generation and I finally got it! I forgot how twistedly good Natalie Bennett’s characters are. Welcome back to the Badlands!!!!!!
Lucifuge “Luce” Deville is exactly what you would anticipate and so much more. After all he’s the Devil’s son and the future King of the Badlands. Romero and Calista did an extremely good job raising him to be exactly as cruel and twisted as he can be. I have to say that I loved Luce more than Romero. He’s dark, insane and with a really creepy intuition. At time it felt like he was seeing into the other characters’ souls.
“You are exactly what I thought you were, and nothing I could of ever fucking expected.”
Astraea “Star” is a newly introduced character. She was taken by the A.R.C a long time ago and kept locked up since then. She’s been abused and tortured but never lost her desire to escape, and she finally succeeded. She escaped the A.R.C to end up in Luce’s hands.
“They are a paradox of everything dark and light. A combination of tainted purity and sin.”
These two couldn’t be more perfect for each other. They might seem like opposites, but Star is the only one who can match Luce step by step. Natalie Bennett couldn’t have given him a better Queen. Their relationship is possessive and obsessive, just like all the Badlands couples. Luce and Star are definitely my favorite duo!!
It was good to see the other characters as well. Star’s appearance has been good for Cam too. He’s been struggling after what happened with Butcher, but she managed to help him start healing. I loved this series from book 1 and the next generation is even better that the OG Savages. I’ll be eagerly waiting for the next book. I need more of these characters asap!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
With a penchant for (writing) villainous immoral men, and a tendency to deviate away from traditional happily ever afters, Natalie Bennett is an international bestselling author of twisted and unconventional love stories.
When she’s not slaying words she’s somewhere in the sunshine state, happily taking life one curve-ball at a time.
