Order of Malice (The Order Series Book 2)

 

rmed with a new identity, Reid Patterson plans to join the FBI hoping to right the wrongs of The Order, a sinister faction controlled by his murderous, biological family. But Reid’s plans go awry when a young girl pleads for his help, bringing fresh threats, a beautiful woman, and a thrill-seeking boy. The countdown begins ticking toward a fiery contest of will and passion.

Foster care psychologist Holly Babson, dreams of a life where her escaped convict father and the memories of her sister’s horrific death are both locked away. While helping a runaway teen, death returns to her doorstep, revealing the teen’s connection to The Order. Holly’s life pivots as her past, her fears, and her heart are locked in vicious turmoil.

Denied a place in The Order, wealthy businessman Ivan Sinclair will stop at nothing to reclaim the top seat in his family’s insidious organization. A deadly game is his vehicle to amass even more power.

Reid and Holly’s worlds collide with the diabolical force of The Order, and Ivan’s cold-blooded plot. Together, they must fight for their lives while learning to trust their hearts.

 

Reader beware, you are about to be sucked into another insanely twisted game of the Order. You will not be able to put this book down until the very end. And once this story is finished……well you will have to see.

 

I love where this author’s mind is while writing these stories. The Order is like nothing I have ever read before. The Order has a reach much further than I expected. And the impact that the Order has on all the characters with the crazy and intense amount of planning that went into their shenanigans is incredible. It’s like the mafia on steroids! “…..a bunch of crazy people with blind allegiance to a deranged ideology.”

 

Reid (the new identity of Walker from the previous book) is surprised when a girl approaches him and claims to be his niece, Lila. Along with Lila we meet her best friend Cody and the social worker, Holly, that watches over Lila. What we find out is that each character, Reid, Lila, Cody, and Holly all have their own secrets. Everyone is dealing with a demon from their past and each in turn find out that they are all intertwined in the end. The Order has this group going on a crazy scavenger hunt to pick up the Order’s artifacts, ultimately to bring them back to the Grand Commander, the leader of the Order. The only problem with this is that there are several different players that think they are the leader. There is a huge power play going on and our group is right in the middle.

 

This story is so far from predictable. I got to the point where I didn’t even try to figure out what the next play was but to just let the story ride out. It is quite the thriller with intense twists but with a touch of love at the end of the day. The only problem is that when this ends…..there is more, so much more…..

 

Can’t wait to read the end of the series with The Order of Rage. I’m on pins and needles trying to figure out who will make it out on top and alive! A must read! Bravo, Lisa Caviness!!!
