“For fractured souls are like magnets.
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.
MY 5 STAR REVIEW
Firstly, I have wrote and rewrote this review about 3 times – nothing I say feels like I am doing Flame, Maddie & Tillie justice! This book is just so good, Tillie Cole must have poured her heart and soul into writing this!
2 words : DESTROYED.EMOTIONALLY.
If you have read the other Hangmen books (and you definitely should!), then you know this is going to hit you right in the heart…and it does, it tears your heart out!
Flame – oh god Flame
Maddie – oh god Maddie
Up to chapter 4 – lump in my throat the size of a continent
Chapter 8 – this book is killing my hardened heart
Chapter ‘11’ – 11, yes 11……
And it goes on, every chapter revealing more, the lump in my throat is getting bigger and bigger and I thought it might actually burst!
These 2 people, Flame and Maddie have just had the worst happen to them in their lives, they are so damaged and then they find each other, it was heartbreaking, breathtaking and beautiful all at the same time. They are each other’s light. ‘I don’t feel the flames when you’re near’.
You see the characters from the previous books (Styx, love him) and you see a little more of what I hope to be future characters books (AK please!) You see more of their strong brotherhood, their bonded relationships and you just know you want to read more and more about them all – this is what I love about this series, all of the characters are intriguing.
What I loved about this book is that I didn’t fall in love with Flame in the ‘biblical’ sense (I am fickle, I have a new BBF every day!) but not Flame, I wanted to mother him, to look after him, to save him…but Maddie beat me to it!
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.
