Betrayal is easy, sex is a weapon, and information is power. Maggie Madison sits in the lofty towers of her city during the day, but at night she lurks the seedy underbelly, looking to snare the man who stole her innocence. Her simple quest becomes complicated when she meets a man who is as light as she is dark, as straightforward as she is deceptive. When a villain rises and sets her world alight, she must weigh her need for revenge against the good of the city she vowed to protect.
This was an interesting book. It isn’t one I normally would have chosen by myself. It was chosen for me as a ‘Surprise Me’ option to the Blind Dates. Nonetheless, I definitely enjoyed it.
Maggie is one badass chick. Her character is thoroughly developed and I liked seeing the various parts to her.
There are many secondary characters, but Kiril is another character who was extremely developed. He was a fantastic villain.
This was the first action-movie type book I have read in a long time. Usually, I am not enthralled by this kind of books. However, The Matriarch is an exception! I was hooked from the first chapter.
And what an ending! It blew my mind! Although, I did see parts of it coming. Haha, it was one of those things where you either see it or you don’t. I am usually terrible at that! But it clicked right before everything happened. I can’t wait to see what Sloane comes up with next for Maggie!
*I voluntarily read a review copy of this book as part of a Quirky Blind Date.
