Nineteen-year-old Violet Sutton lost her brother to the game of the Sins two years ago. She has since spiraled into darkness within the poor section in the City of Calesal—darkness filled with bad alcohol, bad decisions, and bad people. Every day she watches her brother’s tracker blink green in the sixth world, signaling his still-beating heart, but nothing more. So she continues to spiral, her hope along with it, until she makes her worst decision of all: bloodswearing herself into the Sins.
On her journey to find her brother, she must fight through the deadliness of Gluttony, Envy, Wrath, Pride, Sloth, Greed, and Lust. But the minute she lands face-first into the beginning world of sin, she comes to the daunting reality that it is much worse than she could imagine.
Violet is not alone. The brooding, fallen commander from her city, notoriously handsome Jack Marin, haunts her feelings and tests her temper through each world. As the danger grows and death scoffs in her ear, Violet realizes that the biggest sin she’s faced was letting this man into her life...or perhaps more.
And the big kicker? In the five hundred years the game of the Sins has existed, no one has ever exited and broke the curse on their world.
Who will rise? Who will fall? Either way, blood will awaken at its call. Behold, the Sins.
The worlds of the seven deadly sins are not at all what they seem. It began as a bloody game, but for Violet Sutton, blood holds more weight than ever before. Months after swearing herself to the game of the Sins, Violet is still mourning the loss of Jack Marin and ignoring her newfound abilities as she sets her sights on returning to her home world.
Back in Calesal, Jelan Gregory fights to gain control of the city, she discovers the giant walls surrounding them are more of a cage than a means of protection.
With so many wanting her dead, Violet, Rio, and Anaya journey to the sixth world, the Sin of Greed. There they uncover more truths about blood, destiny and Jack’s supposed death.
Broken worlds. Twisted destinies. A game never won. Beware, the blood.
"Uggghhh another book has ripped my heart out and left me waiting until the next book in the series comes out to make it better!
This book is so good. I was sucked into the world Serrin created after the first chapter. I stayed up until 5am finishing it; I kept telling myself "just one more chapter" until I was at the end."
"OKAY. where do i even start with this one… I throughly enjoyed this book oh my god.
Because it’s a fantasy there is obviously a lot of info and world building which did slow me down a little bit, but boy did it pick up during the 2nd/3rd sin!!
The Characters? perfection. The Plot? unmatched. JACK MARIN? love of my life.
This book does end on a cliffhanger, but is definitely still worth the read right now!"
"I am officially obsessed! It’s been a minute since I’ve read a fantasy book but it was so good! Seriously I can’t rave about it enough. It sucked me in and I finished it at like 4am because I couldn’t put it down. I loved all the characters they all had a unique characteristic that made each one stand out on their own. I do have to say that Rio or Jack would be my favorite.
This was a combination of like Hunger Games and ACOTAR. It mixed so well. The characters and story have their own plot lines compared to those. Enemies to lovers, with great banter! I am here for it!"
"Ohmygosh. This book was absolutely incredible. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect going in, but it was SO good.
Well developed characters that you fall in love with, complex plot lines that keep you guessing, plot twist after plot twist, and lots of intense action.
The end left me with some definite emotional damage, but what better way to keep me invested and waiting for the next book?!"
