In a new world gone mad, even the good guys are bad. Welcome to the World’s End series.
This was a very nice book. I enjoyed it so much. It was so much more than I expected. It had everything I want in a book, a good plot, strong characters, crime and love. Just my type of book.
It’s setup in a kind of dystopian world, where the mafia it’s still the mafia. Dante it’s an underboss, very committed to his job, until he meet Carlos, the son of a cartel boss. An interesting turn of events starts a fight not only for their lives, but also for love.
Even when the world created by the author it’s describe as dystopian, it had mostly modern elements with some interesting changes that made more difficult the life of the main characters. The organized crime still keep its usual way of action.
Dante it’s a very nice character, an underboss, very respected and fear, but since the beginning of the book, the reader can see him as someone with the ability of love, and to do anything for the ones he love.
Carlos, is a, sort of a spoiled, son of a cartel boss, but he isn’t an unlikable character, he doesn’t come along as a brat either. He is a very nice character and the relationship they built it’s beautiful. It has ups and downs, but there is always strong emotions present between them. The moments they share are great.
The plot it’s really good. It has a lot of unexpected events and it’s easy to keep the attention.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I really think it was a great book, and since it’s a part of a series, I’m feeling very motivated to read the other book.
