All is lost.
I don’t recognize myself in the mirror anymore.
My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.
I’ve lost my soul.
She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.
Sixty lives are mine to take.
Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.
Sixty lives plus one more.
When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.
Only one person stands in the way.
She doesn’t realize I’ll kill her too.
I don’t own a heart.
And even if I did — I wouldn’t fall prey to its lies again.
I am Chase Abandonato.
Heir to a legacy of betrayal.
And I will kill them all.
Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.
A life for a life.
A soul for a soul.
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Blood in. No out.

The events from the last book changed Chase Winters Abandonato. Gone is the vibrant, optimistic and happy-go-lucky guy I knew from Elicit. He became condescending, icy and bitter after loss and betrayal. He didn’t deserved any of it and it’s hard to read those passages when he is in rage and self-destructive. I’m not used to see him like this. A broken man who almost gives up in life. His emotions are all over the place he cannot think coherently. He was my second favorite hero in the Eagle Elite series and I’m hopeful he’s going to be okay after what happened. In this book, he wants to end the De Lange bloodline but this can lead to his death sentence.
When a newly hired lawyer (courtesy of Dr. Nikolai), Lucianna Smith steps in their mafia world, Chase unleashed his darkness just to drive her away. However, she’s unwavered by his threats. Chase cannot fight the feeling he was drawn by her innocence. I love Lucianna because she’s genuine, loyal and selfless. She was completely different from (view spoiler) and I grew to love her more. She gives the light through his darkness which balanced their relationship. They had a rough start and all of it was worth it.
Eulogy is by far the most intense book in the series. Everything was unpredictable , anything can happen in a snap and I’m not ready for what’s coming. I’m on the edge of my seat and the plot twist @ 84% shook me to the core! Chase’s story in this book was alluring, dark and heartbreaking to read. It’s difficult seeing him go through the pain and self-destruction. The story, no matter how dark it is, it has so much depth in it. It’s a journey of forgiveness, healing and acceptance. I love it and I feel like I moved on like Chase (view spoiler) despite of the tragedy, I’m glad Chase got the love he truly deserved from the beginning. Overall, Rachel Van Dyken did an amazing job on this installment and I’m absolutely excited what’s in store for this series.
