[Sisterhood Reviews] EMPIRE by Kathy Coopmans @AuthorKCoopmans

by Kathy Coopmans


EMPIRE is the final book in The Elite Forces Series. It is recommended to read books 1-4 before attempting to read this
We've loved.
We've lost.
We've hated.
Our Empire is crumbling right before my eyes. No one can be trusted for reasons that are consuming me, controlling me and ripping me away from my family.
This new family who has taken over the streets of New York has taken someone away from us. We will not let them take anymore. The only way to stop them is to sacrifice one of us.
But who? They want to end me and my cousin, Calla.
I will never allow that to happen.
This is our EMPIRE. Our LIFE.
What it boils down to is... her life or mine.
The answer is MINE!

I'm perceived as weak, all because I'm a woman.
A woman on a mission now that they've stolen someone I love.
They have threatened my family, my child, my love.
I may be a woman but, I'm the daughter of a notorious killer.
They want to end me and my cousin, Roan.
I will never allow that to happen.
This is our EMPIRE. Our LIFE.
What it boils down to is... his life or mine.
The answer is MINE!
I'm loved.
I'm lost.
I hate.
*Recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to graphic violence, explicit language, and sexual situations.

Review by Becky Rendon

Oh, hell yeah! Kathy brought it!

When I finished book 4, I was hesitant to read 5. The Deliverance of Dilan was good but it wasn't as good as the others. It felt like a washed out version. But Empire is not washed out, it amps up the tension.

In order to appreciate/understand all that's going on in Empire, you must read the other books in the Syndicate series. You will be lost otherwise.

Empire starts with an unexpected loss. To say the family is rattled is an understatement. Loss like that has the family shaken to the core. But this is not the's only the beginning.

People are being killed. Threats are being made. But innocents are dying. Not acceptable.

One person finds the strength to do something terrifying. But will it be in vain? Will it work? Too many variables in a plan that has barely been thought out...

I really enjoyed the conclusion to the Syndicate series. It's nice to revisit Roan and Calla- their point of views. It was hard to put down. I was desperate to know what was next and if it would work.To see each character grow into their new position was pretty cool.

Again, it's a mafia book so...sold.

Review by Anne Milne

Yes, yes, yes, Kathy saved the best for last. She brought it all together in this last installment.
At the start of the book, the family is in turmoil as they are heartbroken after an unexpected and devastating loss, but never underestimate this family.
We get both Calla and Roan's POV. They are both struggling to deal with everything that's happened and Calla has a new role she has to accept. There is betrayal and deceit at every turn, and lives are lost. The guys seem to be running in circles trying to figure out who to trust and who is the real threat.
Loved getting back to all the guys and their families. Loved all the drama. I was on the edge of my seat at points. Kathy gave us a fitting end to this fantastic series.
