BlurbMy name is Tatiana Pavlenko. I am the Russian Ballet’s Prima Ballerina. It’s been a tough journey to reach the pinnacle of my career, and it has come at a great cost … my soul. I have been known by many names throughout my young life, but no one knows the true identity of who I really am. War is about to break out around Russia, and it is the perfect opportunity for me to kill every man who has hurt me; who had his way with me. The evil that’s about to strike down on Russia’s powerful men isn’t from their neighbouring countries. It’s from me, the one they call Ten' smerti … Death’s Shadow
I have loved Tatiana since TJ Hamilton's Making Thyme series. I was hooked in just the brief glimpse we did get from her and I love that she got her own book.
Taken and sold in to the sex slave trade, Tatiana has been through hell. She's been bought, sold, beaten and had everything taken from her.She has every reason not to want to go on, but she does, and she comes back with a vengeance. After all, no one would suspect the Prima Ballerina.
This book is so well written. It's full of suspense and intrigue and underneath it all, the hope of a new life and love. You get the feeling of satisfaction as Tatiana takes down those that wronged her, and you can feel her desperation when she knows she can't be found out. She doesn't want Luka to know, he's the one thing that brings her happiness. The one thing she strives for.
Her past has shaped who she has become and the TJ does a brilliant job at showing you just what she did go through. Just who she was depended on what role she had to play. The only time she could be herself was with her beloved Luka. And even then, she had secrets, she had to protect him.
TJ takes what appears to be a secondary character and puts her center stage and she just draws you in. I truly hope that this isn't the end for Tatiana. A woman such as she deserves more. The only spoiler I will give, is that you best be sitting down and have a few shots poured when you reach the ending. And that's all you will get from me.
A 5 star read for any lover of dark and suspense.
