sinopsis

 

 

Fifth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.

 

“We’d won. We’d cut through the lies and treachery and promised an alliance that would free us both. But even as we won, we lost. We didn’t see what was coming. We didn’t know we had to plan a resurrection.”

 

Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.

 

Jethro Hawk fell in love. He let down his walls to a woman he believed was his cure. For a moment, he was free. But then he paid the ultimate price.

 

There is no more love. Only war. Hope is dead. Now, there is only death all around them.

 

**Only suitable for Dark Romance lovers.

Full length book. Six in series. Fourth Debt is 85,000 words.

 

MY RATING: 4.5 Beastly Dark Stars

MY REVIEW:

 

***ARC received in exchange of an honest review***

 

As I mentioned, I’m  really enjoying how Pepper Winters is doing this series. Book after book she brings us more information about the screwed up past between the Hawk and the Weaver families. Also, in each book she brings us more and more darkness!

 

And in each book I fall more in love with her characters. After the way the 4th book (Third Debt) finished I was dying to finally start Fourth Debt. All books in this series end in cliffhangers, but Pepper isn’t making we wait too long for them. And it’s all worth it!

 

I’m a HUGE fan of dark books as you all know. Specially Pepper’s. Few authors can write dark stuff like she can! Her Monsters in the Dark series is PERFECTLY written and the Indebted series isn’t behind! I love how, even though the subject can be so distant than our reality, the writing makes it so real! I mean, she gets me believing all that stuff can actually happen.

 

I have to admit thought, that Nila frustrated me a bit in this book. Some things were obviously right under her nose and she kept insisting on being stubborn and frustrating, specially towards Jaz! I get, she’s been through a LOT, I mean, I’m ready for the girl to have a breather. But even understanding a bit why she was like that, she did frustrate me.

 

Now, what a screwed up family the Hawks are! Holy Darkness!!! I really want to know more about them, because things must make sense. To me, the whole reason for the debts and this whole revenge is waaay too dramatic (it’s dramatic of them, not the book. The story is AWESOME), they should have let go, years and years before! And how come, EVERYONE associated with them thinks it’s okay to do what they do to the Weavers??

 

I HATE the matriarch of the Hawks. I hate Cut. And I DESPISE Daniel. What an evil trio!!! I learned to LOVE Flaw, he is funny and a decent person.

 

Oh, and the main character in Pepper’s newest series, Ruin and Rule, who was introduced in the 4th book in the Indebted series (Third Debt) appears in this book too and I’m dying to see more of him. I haven’t read Ruin and Rule yet, but It’s on my TBR list (the never-ending one)!!! I believe he will be essencial in the next book and I can’t wait to see what he will do.

 

Oh and let’s not forget the mystery arond Jethro and Kestrel’s mother. Who is she? What happened to her? And Jethro and Kestrel are a mystery of their own. Specially after what Cut did to them in the previous book. I LOVED seeing a different side of Jaz and I have a feeling she will be torn between two possible loves, if she survives her family, of course!

 

The story is going towards a direction I can only speculate. I know what I want to happen, but with Pepper, even if she goes with the direction I hope and wait, there will be twists and turns. And I can’t wait for them! I love what she can do to a story!

EXCERPT

FUNNY HOW LIFE plays practical jokes.

The past few days—that had to be a fucking joke, right?

No logical answer would make sense of what I’d seen, heard, and lived the past seventy-two hours.

My sister.

My best friend and twin.

This was what she’d been living with? This was how she’d been treated?

This was what she wanted to return to?

Motherfucking why? Why would she ever want to return to this insanity?

We’d been raised in a broken home, chained to an empire that absorbed us right from birth. But we were kept safe, warm, and loved. We grew up together. We shared everything.

But now…I had no fucking clue who my sister was.

But then she came to me.

A woman I never knew existed.

The most stunning creature I’d ever seen.

Only she didn’t come to me on feet or wings of an angel. She rolled into my life and demanded my help.

And for better or for worse…

I helped her.

“LET ME GO!”

Daniel cackled like a mad hyena, his fingers stabbing into my bicep. Without breaking his stride, he stole me further away from the parlour and into the bowels of the house.

I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to go anywhere with him.

“Take me back!”

He can’t be dead!

Just because he lay unmoving and bloody didn’t mean he was gone.

That’s exactly what it means.

I shook my head, dislodging those awful thoughts. He’s alive. He had to be.

I couldn’t tolerate any other answer. I refused to live in a world where evil triumphed over good. That wasn’t right—life couldn’t be that cruel.

It’s always been that way.

My mind filled with images of my mother. My father’s desolation. My broken childhood. Evil had puppeteered us from day one. Why should now be any different?

He’s not dead!

I swallowed a sob.

Please don’t be dead…

I fought harder. “Let me see him. You can’t do this!”

Daniel cackled louder. “Keep begging, Weaver. Won’t do you any good.”

He’s not dead!

I locked my knees, fighting him every step. “Stop!” Looking back the way we’d come, the door to the parlour seemed so far away—a bright beacon at the end of a festering corridor. “They were your brothers, you insane psychopath. Don’t you feel anything?!”

Please let me go to him. He has to be alive…

Please let my twin stay alive…

Let all of this be a nightmare!

I couldn’t cope with Jethro murdered; I’d go clinically insane if they killed V, too.

“I feel relief. I no longer have to put up with their simpering bullshit.” He flashed his teeth. “Cut did us all a favour.”

Cut will die.

He was evil incarnate. He deserved to die in excruciatingly painful ways.

I refuse to believe they’re dead.

“I said stop!” I wriggled harder, only succeeding in Daniel’s fingers tearing into my flesh. Goosebumps covered my skin while ice steadily froze my veins. Every second was endless torture. I couldn’t live without Jethro.

It can’t end like this!

“You won’t win, Weaver.” Daniel tugged harder. “Accept what’s fucking happened and obey me.”
