Two of my men have been captured. The rest of us are barely holding on.
We’re wanted, and our army stands no chance against the swarm of mind-controlled pawns. Failure is not an option. Abandoning my husbands is not an option. But the longer we take to plan, the closer we get to losing them.
Even worse, our companion gods are no help. Horus can’t see them. Freyja can’t heal them. And Hades can only tell me they’re not dead yet.
We have everything to lose, and no options left. Jandro, Gunner, and I must do this ourselves.
The Sha will answer for taking my men from me. For driving us from our home. For killing and torturing those I’ve claimed as family.
And I will be merciless.
TW: violence, torture. Please see the full warning at the beginning of the book if you are sensitive to triggering content.
Sons of Anarchy meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this dystopian reverse harem adventure! Merciless is the ninth and final book in the Steel Demons MC saga. This series is full of kindle-melting steam and dangerous men who take what they want. Proceed with caution if easily offended.
Hi everyone. Today I’d like to talk about reviewing books. I’m not an expert in reviewing, but I often read reviews. Sometimes I don’t think readers understand how much reviews mean to the authors and other readers. Here are some responses from authors and readers. (Everyone is anonymous)
Reader about a review they saw:
2 stars OMG I LOVE THIS BOOK IT WAS SO GREAT IM DYING UNTIL THE NEXT ONE COMES. … …. Ok.. but why 2 stars then?
Author: I don’t mind getting a low review, but I would love to know why. If there’s something I could fix or do better it could help me grow.
Author: 1 star with no explanation Or just “DNF”
Was it just not to your taste? Or were there legitimate issues?
This is actually an issue I have as an author and reader. No explanation doesn’t help me as either.
Author: “Honestly? Any DNF that leaves a review, period. Even if they explain why, 9 times out of 10, the reason they DNFd is resolved if they would have continued reading (this is excluding grammar/editing complaints which my books don’t generally receive anyway). I often feel like a review isn’t justified if they haven’t read ALL of the book.”
Author: The dnf with no explanation.. or the best one is when characters not even in my book gets mentioned and situations that didn’t happen.
Author: The reviews that spoil the plot. Idc If they are negative as long as they are honest and don’t contain spoilers.
Author: When they lower the rating due to something you have labeled in the warning 🤦♀️
Author: “I love this book so much I’m only giving it four stars instead of five because the sequel isn’t out yet”
Author: Have so many.
1) Saying they didn’t like something that was CLEARLY stated that was part of the book. Blurb says “reverse harem werewolf story”, review says, “I hate werewolves so one star.” Uhh… no. That’s on you. If a book is truly misrepresented: okay.
2) DNF but I only read 5% of the book so I can’t actually say why this happened I just know I don’t like it.
3) Glowing reviews that are 2 or 3 star. People, you realize this actually HURTS authors, right? 3 stars and below Amazon considers negative. Might be ‘good’ on your watch, but that’s not how it works on Amazon. This isn’t goodreads. These ranks matter. They affect sales. You want more books? RATE. ACCORDINGLY. Stop being stingy!!!!
4) EXTREME spoilers. Come on!
5) Taking ARCs and not leaving reviews OR not communicating that you need more time/aren’t able/whatever. Your time is valuable! We know this! Just say “Hey, something came up, I might not be able to get to this for a while!” Cool!!!!
5) Bitching about cliffhangers. Some of them suck, and you get no resolution at all. I get that. That’s not a good cliffhanger. But unless it’s a series of standalones, or a standalone, EVERY BOOK WILL HAVE SOME SORT OF CLIFFHANGER. Recognize this!
6) And probably the worst one of all: 1-star because of a handful of typos. EXTREME editing or story issues: okay. But saying it was unreadable because of a misplaced comma or something is just dickish, and bullying. You expect perfection: write your own or read traditional with their $50k editing budgets. Indies have $1k-0 to spend on editing, and charge under $5 for a book. I understand when something is so poorly edited it’s unreadable but a couple of typos are going to happen. Period. RECOGNIZE.
I could go on but these are the worst. lol
Author: When they review the book without reading the blurb…and then they complain about what the book was about, even though they should have known going in based on the blurb!!!
‘My name is 625. At least, that’s the number branded into my skin, the only identity I have. My real name, whatever it was, was stripped from me when I was sold into slavery at age eight. I am now 20, and no more than property, my only purpose working in the palace. Until the day I meet him.’

You couldn’t be more wrong.
As far as monsters go, I’m a screw up—if I’m not tripping over my own feet, I’m accidentally murdering someone (it’s a real issue, guys).
Left with no choice, Dad decides to send me to Prodigium—otherwise known as Monster Academy—to train me on how to be a better monster.
When bodies turn up on campus, I’m the prime suspect (not that I can blame them. I’ll be pretty suspicious too if bodies drained of blood show up right after Dracula’s daughter arrives).
With the help of my mortal-nemesis Vin, Van Helsing’s son
Frankie, Frankenstein’s son
Mason, Medusa’s son
And Jack (sometimes Hux), Dr. Jekyll’s son
I might have a chance of uncovering the truth.
If I’m not murdered first.
The struggles of being a vampire, am I right?

Dearly Departed is book one of a four book series by bestselling authors, Loxley Savage and Katie May. This is a reverse harem romance meaning that the main character won’t have to choose between her love interests. This is medium-burn and does contain strong language and sexual themes. Oh, and death. Lots and lots of death. Book one will end in a cliffhanger.
*Note from Authors
The main character does pass away from cancer (which is how she ends up in the Afterworld Academy). Please keep this in mind while reading, especially if that may be triggering to you. We would love for you to read our book, but we want you to take care of yourself.
The Collapse changed everything. Good men became killers. Strong women became property. And every day turned into a fight for survival.
I once dreamed of becoming a nurse. That dream went up in flames the same day I graduated nursing school, when women were banned from holding any kind of medical license.
Now as an unlicensed medic, I travel what was once the southwestern United States, trading medical services for food, transportation, and shelter with the hopes of reaching Canada. Because the United States is no more. And the lawless land that’s replaced it is a deadly place for a woman.
My worst fear comes true when I’m captured by the Steel Demons MC, the most ruthless biker gang in the Southwest. These men thrive on the violence and chaos brought on by the Collapse, and they’re eager to unleash it all on me. It doesn’t even matter that the President’s dog likes me. I’m as good as dead.

I want to return to them, but our family is not complete. One is missing, a member of the coven who was lost before they found me. And I must go on a quest to Purgatory and bring him back, or we’ll forever be incomplete.
I’m coming home to my men, to my family, but will my return bring relief or doom us all?
