#NewRelease #Review EL SANTO by M. Robinson @AuthorMRobinson





I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.

I killed. 

I tortured. 

I loved…

I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options. 

If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe. 

If you weren’t with me, you were against me. 

Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption. 

Not for me. 

For them. 

For anyone. 

Only for her… 

She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner. 

A fucking monster. 

Until it was too late. 

Except, I didn’t choose this life. 

It. Chose. Me.

I never think I’m going to like s character as much as the previous one but then the author writes a book that pulls me in from the start and doesn’t let go. 

We got a glimpse of Damien at the end of Ends Here and this was his story. We got to meet a young idealistic Damien who lived through horrific and brutal events that shaped his thinking and El Santo was born. 

The author has become known as The Queen of Angst and this story cements that reputation further. Emotional doesn’t begin to describe how i felt whilst reading, my mood swung between anxious angry scared happy. 

The story had everything I wanted and have come to love about the authors books, her writing just gets better and better.

I’m going to tell you a story. 

It’s dark. 

It’s brutal. 

It’s fucking real. 

In order to understand my present, who I am, and what I’ve become… 

You need to understand my past. 

Evil doesn’t always hide in the shadows, in the darkness. Most of the time, it’s out in the open, in plain fucking sight. Possessing the man you’d least expect. You see, I never imagined another life until I made one for myself. By that time, I was too far-gone, engulfed in nothing but pitch black darkness. Exactly the way it was meant to be. 

No one could touch me. 

No one fucked with me. 

I. Was. Invincible. 

Nothing more… 

Nothing less. 

When I dreamed of true love—of soul mates, my other half, of her—the cruelty of my life would snap me back into my reality, making it just that, a dream. One that could easily turn into a nightmare. 

My worst fucking nightmare. 

Every memory, the good, the bad, the in between. All the I love yous, every last I fucking hate you, her heart and soul that I’d broken, shattered and destroyed along the years belonged to me. 

Her pleasure. 

Her pain. 

It was all a part of me, carved so fucking deep into my skin where she would forever be engraved. My story is going to make you fucking hate me as much as she does, but I want you to. 

I’m not looking for redemption. 

I’m not looking for your forgiveness. 

I don’t deserve yours like I don’t deserve hers. 

I’m far from the hero in this story. 

I’m closer to the villain. 

You will think of me as the villain. 

Except, I’m far worse. 

I’m the fucking monster. 

And, I’m perfectly alright with that. 

I dare you to try to love me… 

Like she did and probably still does. 

Don’t say, I didn’t warn you.
