Eulogy by Rachel Van Dyken Publication Date: February 20th, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance
All is lost.
All. I don't recognize myself in the mirror anymore. My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage. I've lost my soul. She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been. Sixty lives are mine to take. Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance. Sixty lives plus one more. Mine. When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled. Only one person stands in the way. She doesn't realize I'll kill her too. I don't own a heart. And even if I did — I wouldn't fall prey to its lies again. I am Chase Abandonato. Heir to a legacy of betrayal. And I will kill them all. Even if it means pointing the gun at myself. A life for a life. A soul for a soul.
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep. Blood in. No out.
BLOOD. BLOOD. BLOOD. It covered my hands. It surged through my heart. It dripped from my fingertips onto the concrete floor. Trapped. Broken. Finished. Hungry. Insanity scratched its way into my psyche as I eyed the door and waited. One heartbeat, two heartbeats, three… It opened. I fired two rounds, and acrid smoke filled the air. I thought I knew what love was. I was a fucking idiot. Every single bone in my body shuddered with rage, with the need to rip something apart, someone, anyone —all of them. My friends. My brothers. I brought the war to our house, and they would finish me because of it. I’d thought I loved her. Our love had been a lie. Her betrayal my only truth. And now? Now, I finally knew what love was. I’d seen it, smelled it, tasted it. And lost it. I’d fucking lost it. They would pay. They would all pay. For taking her. For turning her against me. For making me believe that blood was everything, only after mine was spilled.
5 massive star read.
So firstly this is a standalone book that is part of a series. If your wanting to read the series start at the beginning as other books will contain spoilers from previous books, especially this one.
So, I don't even know where to start with this author or this series. I'm just completly blown away, and in love with everything. Rachel always taps into my dark side and makes me love the twisted tales in this series. 
Chase was just everything in this book to me. From book one he's been one of my favourite characters, the funny yet dark one. But from the start of this book that funny Chase has gone and we're left with this very very dark character who is really struggling due to circumstances in the last book which I won't mention incase you haven't got that far yet. The raw emotion that this author was able to portray with Chase was spellbinding, I felt every bit of his pain and felt every emotion he went through. 
Luc was and unusual character to be added into this series due to the fact she was nothing like everyone else. Shes very timid, very quiet, and I would even go as far as to say scared of her own shadow. At first I did find myself thinking would I like this character, how will she fit in. But it didn't take me long to realize that Rachel had yet again come up with a brilliant character. She was the perfect fit in her own quirky way and watching her and Chase was both beautiful and sad. Luc was a character that I fell in love with along with Chase when I never expected to connect to her as much as I did. Chase, well I've always loved Chase through all the books so this was definatly one of my favourites in this series.
I can't wait for more, I need more from this author like right now. I wish I could go back and read it all from the start again so I can feel every emotion for the first time all over again. This is a must read and if you've never read this series what are you waiting for? Go back to the start and be prepared to fall in love with these dark, dangerous characters who will keep you entrapped through every book.
