Woah. WOAH. Where Death meets the Devil was a TRIP!
Where Death Meets the Devil is a book which bounces back and forth between events which take place a year ago and during the present day. It takes you through the journey of two characters, Jack Reardon and Ethan Blade. I don’t even want to say much because it’s much better to read it and find out how the two characters gained the history they have and how they know each other so well.
Ethan Blade a professional assassin. Jack Rearden works for a top-secret government agency in Australia who are trying to battle terrorism.
Their paths collide when Jack is sent undercover to find out what a terrorist group is up to and Ethan Blade has been hired by said group. Certain events lead them to have to work together to escape from the terrorists unharmed. An alliance is formed so they can both stay alive.
A year since they’ve seen each other, Ethan Blade walks into Jack’s government agency, surrendering. From here, the story just gets wild. You need to read it to truly enjoy it.
The parts of the book set a year ago are so exciting and suspenseful. I was on the edge of seat wanting to know what happens next and how the events of the previous year connected with their present-day relationship. The book is full of mind games, lies and plot twists and a race against time to stop their worlds from erupting. You’ll be trying your best to figure out who is lying and who is telling the truth. Who is good and who is bad.
You might expect that Ethan is some stone-cold killer and while that is a certain part of him, he’s so much more than that. He can be childlike, funny and vulnerable, yet so damn dangerous. A lethal combination. He also loves cars. It’s all too hard for Jack to resist.
This book has a slow-burn romance that is very much worth the wait. The chemistry is off the charts. It’s a long read but it’s absolutely worth it. Every word is gripping and this is beautiful storytelling.
It’s the most fun I’ve had reading in a while. I truly recommend it. I’ve heard there are other books coming out, but this one ends on an HFN.
