#REVIEW – Bang (Black Lotus #1) by E.K. Blair


“BANG is one of the most talked about books of 2014, quickly earning E.K. Blair acclaim for her ability to weave a dark, twisted tale of revenge that will keep you on the edge of your seat till the last word.”

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.
But I’m not innocent.
I haven’t been for a very long time.
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.


I never even had a choice.
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.
Until now.
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.


Jo’s Review:

I’ve been wanting to read this series for awhile and decided I was going to read them after my current binge on another authors books. But after reading some one-star reviews on this book, it jumped to a must read now moment.

This book…where do I even begin? EK has a way of twisting words, making you feel every letter. I’m left reeling. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t stop reading until I was done.

Everything that happens in this book, leaves you wanting and craving the next moment. The next scene which makes you question on if that actually happened.

Each character plays a huge part in the story. Man oh man, the feels I have right now. From the very first word, I was stressed, knowing something intense was about to happen.

The story lines weave together in a web of mastery and skill, forcing you to experience it all.

Pain. Heartache. Deceit. Lies. So many lies.

Some of the scenes were hard to read and I found myself needing a moment. Taking a breath so I wouldn’t lose it.

EK’s words seduce you into wondering what if it were you? What if you were so desperate to find happiness, that you would do anything to get it? What if, after all of this, that happiness never came and you only end up destroying yourself and those around you.
