I can NOT think of a single series that had me anticipating a book as fervently as the Condemned Series. I read Torrent and Rampant in a single sitting, devouring both and forgoing sleep in favor following this dirty as hell, sexy as sin, often disturbing and completely enthralling story. When Fervent came out I couldn’t get to it fast enough and just like the first 2 books, it did not disappoint, taking me on a crazy, dark, wild ride and (also like the first two) leaving me with one hell of a cliffhanger. SO…when I had a chance to get my hands on an ARC of Vagrant…I could not get to it fast enough. All my other books were immediately pushed aside, work was forgotten, sleep disregarded…..all that mattered was that Vagrant was on my kindle !!! VAGRANT WAS ON MY KINDLE !!!!
I could not wait to jump back in to Alex and Rafe’s story…I needed to know what the hell Rafe was doing, I needed to know what Jax told Alex and I really needed to know how Alex reacted. All I can say is it was more. Everything about this book was MORE….more than I expected, more than I hoped for, more than I imagined it would be. The emotion and heart break felt more real, the kink was definitely kinked up a notch and the obstacles in Rafe and Alex’s path are different in this book, but potentially more insurmountable than in the previous books because this time around the obstacles were self imposed…..trust, fear, forgiveness, guilt, hurt…the list goes on.
This book was the perfect conclusion to one of my favorite dark series…possibly the darkest series I’ve read thus far. Gemma is the master of dark romance and these books took me places I never thought I’d go…but more than that, it took me places I never thought I wanted to go. Yet when I got there, I was so damn glad I went on the journey. The other thing I absolutely loved about these books was that each one was so different from the one before it. While they fit together perfectly, each one stretched my boundaries in a new and completely unique way. However, the best thing about all four of these wonderful books it that at their core, they are a love story. A twisted love story involving two very damaged and desperate people with a boatload of baggage and some serious kinks, but a tremendous love story none the less.
The only negative thing I can say is that I am damn sad this series is over, but I guess all good things must come to an end….
