Souls Unfractured by Tillie Cole
Hades Hangmen #3
Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…”
Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in. Free from endless years of physical and mental torment.
At age twenty-one, the timid and shy Maddie is content to live within the confines of her new home—safe from the outside world, safe from harm and, strangely, protected by the Hangmen’s most volatile member; the heavily pierced and tattooed, Flame.
The man who ceaselessly watches over her with his midnight dark and searing eyes. The man who protects her with a breath-taking intensity. And the man who stirs something deep within her numbed heart.
But when circumstances conspire for Flame to need HER help, Maddie bravely risks it all for the broken man who has captivated her fragile soul.
The Hangmen’s most infamous member, Flame, is ruled by one thing—anger. Plagued by haunting demons from his past, an all-consuming rage, and isolated by an abhorrent hatred of being touched, Flame’s days are filled with suffocating darkness, pierced only by a single ray of light—Maddie. The shy, beautiful woman he cannot purge from his thoughts. The woman he has an overwhelming need to possess…
… the only person who has ever been able to touch him.
Flame’s mission in life is to protect Maddie, to keep her safe. Until a trigger from his troubled past sends him spiraling into madness, trapping him in the deepest recesses of his disturbed mind.
His Hangmen brothers fear that Flame is beyond saving.
His only hope of salvation: Maddie and her healing light.
Souls Unfractured is book #3 in the Hades Hangman series, I was lucky enough to be gifted an ARC of the book to read for Gemma Reads Too much.
It’s a common pattern for me when I read one of Tillie Coles books to be up all night and guess what it 5.08am. The reason for this is that I would rather not get a wink of sleep then even consider putting this book down before I read the words The End.
Tillie Cole is for me one of those authors who creates a world with her words and from the first page I lose myself to that world. I’m carried along by the story and the characters that become real.
I’ve loved Mae and Styx and Lilah and Ky’s story but honestly since the moment Maddie touched Flame in book 1 I’ve been desperate to read their story.
This is a dark series, it deals with some seriously fucked up things, it’s not for the feint hearted? But I kind of feel like this book is a more rapid downward spiral. We hear Maddie and flames stories first hand and they are brutal! !! At times it’s so harrowing that I wanted to put the book down and read a nice friendly YA novel.
Amazingly this author keeps in the stomach churning graphic details about horrors I don’t even want to think about.
But even through all this darkness this beautiful love story shines the brightest.
Maddie and Flames story is breath-taking, it pulls you in and fills you with hope this couple gets under your skin and makes you need for then to be OK.
I tell you what though I’d be fire bombing The Orders HQ kill the lot of then the sick bastards! !!
I want to say that I loved this book, but it’s so fucked up its a bit weird to say I love it, but I did love the way two broken, tortured souls helped piece together the fractured bits of one another.
Their relationship is a beautiful beacon of hope in a dark and angry world.
This is a stunningly beautiful love story set against the depravity of an evil world, simply put its outstanding!!!
Yet again another 5 star read.
Tillie Cole is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother — a farmer’s daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.
