Review: The Monster of Farewell by Catherine Black

Series: Blacklighters

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: April 25, 2019

Mercury Havenworth My mother always told me I had nothing. No place in civilized society. No moral compass. No soul... But despite all my shortcomings, there is one thing I do have: Farewell. It's my home. My sanctuary and birthright. It's everything to me, and one day soon, I will oversee this feral matriarchy which gave me life. The men who step through our gates see a crumbling mansion, they see a handful of women willing to bleed for a cause, but Farewell is so much more than that. It's an empire. MY empire. Kessler Lawson After eight years of incarceration, I'm a free man...for approximately two hours. That's how long it takes to ruin my life. Wedged between freedom and the officer who put me behind bars in the first place, I'm given a choice: Help the New Liberty Police Department infiltrate a band of criminals ruling over Farewell, Missouri...or score a one-way ticket back to prison. With enemies on both sides, falling into bed with the boss's murderous daughter probably isn't the best idea, but there's no going back now...not after undressing the monster of Farewell. (Warning: This book includes dark themes, offensive language, and explicit scenes that may make some readers uncomfortable. Read with caution.)

The Monster of Farewell is the first book I've read by Catherine Black. It was sooooo good!! Farewell is a matriarchal society that trains Blacklighters . . . female fighters. Mercury is an anomaly because she was born there. Here mother is the madame and runs Farewell. Mercury has been training for 7 years for her shot at a Blacklight, being known as the Monster of Farewell she has already created a name for herself before even stepping into the cage. Kessler is fresh out of prison after spending 8 years in for manslaughter. His cop brother leaves him no option but to infiltrate Farewell and find evidence of wrong doing. You think its just a cop doing his job, but maybe he has an ulterior motive? This book was so original and so good. Alpha females, steamy sex, kick a$$ action and well written story made for a great first book in this series. There is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end so now I'm chomping at the bits for book 2!!!

In 2013, Catherine Black left a cushy job at a large internet company to stay at home with her two children and she hasn't looked back since. Playing mom, maid, and nurse during the day is wildly fulfilling, but when the lights go out and everyone's in bed, her imaginary friends come out to play. When she's not writing or mothering, she's breezing through as many romance books as possible, dabbling in amateur photography, or tending to her backyard chickens.
