Eulogy by Rachel Van Dyken
Publication Date: February 20th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.

Stephanie’s 4.5 Blush Review
Family. Enemies. Betrayal. Love. Hate. Violence. It’s blood in and no out!
Eulogy is Book #9 in the Eagle Elite Series. Rachel Van Dyken (RVD) has literally brought this series to a whole other level! Enrage, Book #8 left us hungry for more! RVD truly threw the baby out with the bathwater when she killed off Mil. There is so much collateral damage. Mil was a wife, sister, friend and…mob boss.
The death of Mil has an unbelievable impact on Chase. The ripple effect is felt far and wide. Chase, the easy going, funny guy is devastated. His rage is thick and palpable. His heart, shattered. He is lost. Lost in grief. He feels as though he failed Mil as a husband, a partner, a protector.
“I thought I loved her.”
“Our love had been a lie.”
“Her betrayal my only truth.”
Chase is trapped in a vicious cycle of hate and violence. Lashing out at everyone around him. Adding to this is a “mole” that has infiltrated the family. FBI “interviews” reveal pieces to a puzzle. The bigger picture. But who, who is the mole?
Luciana Smith is the new lawyer hired to deal with all of the legalities associated with the five families. She is sent to Chase first to go through the books and organize everything. Chase was not at all happy with this. Especially since she had to live with him. Chase starts out reckless and unpredictable with Luciana.
“She was the exact opposite of Mil. She was soft, didn’t talk back, and stared at me as if I was seconds away from ending her life.”
Life goes forward and plans are set in motion. Moles and murders. Fears and reveals. Chase finds his heart starting to come alive. But there is so much at stake. And then she does it again! RVD drops another bomb on us! Things ramp up at about 70% in. There is so much happening! And so I clenched my teeth as I read the last few chapters. Whew! What.A.Ride.
The story is not all doom & gloom. There are a lot of funny moments and I loved the group ‘texts’. We have seen these characters since they were in college and watched them grow, mature, marry and start families. So, what happens next? There are some pregnancies and some babies…
Is there another story or will we get a second generation?
“All wars are different. Some are lost with words unsaid.”
BLOOD. BLOOD. BLOOD.
It covered my hands.
It surged through my heart.
It dripped from my fingertips onto the concrete floor.
Insanity scratched its way into my psyche as I eyed the door and waited. One heartbeat, two heartbeats, three…
I fired two rounds, and acrid smoke filled the air.
I thought I knew what love was. I was a fucking idiot. Every single bone in my body shuddered with rage, with the need to rip something apart, someone, anyone —all of them. My friends. My brothers. I brought the war to our house, and they would finish me because of it.
I’d thought I loved her.
Our love had been a lie.
Her betrayal my only truth.
Now, I finally knew what love was. I’d seen it, smelled it, tasted it.
And lost it.
I’d fucking lost it.
They would pay. They would all pay.
For taking her.
For turning her against me.
For making me believe that blood was everything, only after mine was spilled.
