Review ~ Riot by Tillie Cole

I’ve said it before, but it is worth repeating: the authenticity of the style Tille Cole when writing this series blows my mind. From the first words to the last, you are immersed in the world of The Blood Pit. The harshness of the character’s lives is evident at all times, but the hope love brings is rarely far.

Riot is, in a word, brutal. But it is also inspiring and sweet.

I honestly never know how much of the story to tell, and I lean on the light side, so bear with me. We know 152 (stop reading if you don’t know who she is)

Seriously, stop.

Okay…. So 152 is Valentin’s sister, stolen back by Master at the end of Ravage. She is given to a death match fighter as leverage, and holy heck does that get intense. On all sides. It’s ugly and beautiful and mesmerizing.

The fights that both MC’s endure are gut wrenching, exciting, gruesome, and so well written I could not stop reading. The ending was so Tille Cole, loved it. LOVED IT.

Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.

He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.

But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.

Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.
