Violent Triumphs is the conclusion in the epic White Monarch series. Throughout this series, we have seen the tale of Natalia de la Cruz and Cristiano de la Rosa on their way to the penultimate ending in Violent Triumphs.
Violent Delight and Violent Ends had me flabbergasted, shocked, agitated, befuddled, enthralled, and longing for more. I seriously could not get enough of book 1 and 2. Violent Triumphs is straight up leaving me confused. Although, it’s fantastic to see Natalia step into her own as an adult and cartel queen, I feel like I was missing the ‘Bam’ or ‘punch’ that I have seen and felt through VD and VE. It also appeared to me like Violent Triumphs is two different books. The first half is very mellow and concentrates on Natalia and Cristiano’s relationship, with Natalia slowly beginning to realize who she is. The second half is the fast tempo, cartel setting that this series was built upon. The ending is… (I’ll leave you with that).
It all boils down to this. Can Jessica Hawkins write? Without a shadow of a doubt. Is she talented? Please, I wish I had even an eyelash amount of her talent. Would I recommend this series to anyone? I have and I will. Am I slightly disappointed at the ending? Just a smidge, but I firmly anticipate a re-read without having all the hype to soak up everything that happens in this book. I know because I was chomping at the bit to read the final book, that I set the bar high. Probably ridiculously high, so when it came time to read Violent Triumphs, I was already biased with the need to fulfill that high standard. Overall, Jessica Hawkins is an author not to miss. White Monarch is a series worth reading and re-reading and these characters are unforgettable.

She currently resides in Northern California with her Italian stallion and her feral children, where the days are slow and easy and wine pours are heavy. (just kidding…maybe)

Seriously, a part of me wants to just say to you all, ‘Just read the book. Don’t hesitate, don’t think twice, just one-click this baby and read.’ However, that really isn’t a review now is it?
I am wrecked, flabbergasted, suspicious of everything and everyone. Dare I say happy? I’m afraid if I do, Ms. Jones is going to throw another one of her epic monkey wrenches in everything and take that away. I’ll admit I said this before about a couple of books, but Malum part 2, truly did destroy me and rip me apart. I’m still unsure how I’m being put back together, but my love for Tillie and Nate is strong.
Tillie is the epitome of savage. She is hardcore, smart, will defend herself and others, if needed. In a sense, she is like Robin Hood. He gave money to the poor, while Tillie defends those that are frailer and weaker than her. She doesn’t take any crap from anyone. However, there is one person that can slip past her defenses no matter how many times she puts a wall up. Nate.
Nate has left me speechless. He had just evolved tremendously from part 1 to now. Malum part 1 felt like boys playing King of the Hill on the schoolyard. Malum part 2 brings on a whole new ballgame for The Kings. It’s no more King of the Hill their playing, now it’s King of the World and watch out world, because these boys mean and do what they say. Their lives are one big chess match and you don’t want to cross Tillie and her Kings. They have matured, evolved in their roles within the group and quite frankly are bad@ss. Nate was larger than life. He appeared to fill in every space wherever he was. He is domineering, scary, hot and plain excelled in his role with the Kings. Tillie and Nate are two puzzle pieces trying to find their match. The downside to finding your match with these two is that they are explosive together and if you don’t watch out, you will get burned.
Amo Jones has seriously done it again. She held back no punches, displayed the chemistry that just blew up the page, took you on a ride full of up’s, down’s, twist’s and turns. As jarring and addicting as it was, one of my favorite things was when Tillie and the Kings just sat back, relaxed, bantered and had a few laughs. They emanated the whole feeling of family, despite not necessarily being blood related.
Amo you continually mesmerize me with your talented writing. I know when I read an Amo Jones’ book, I will have had everything drawn out of me and be left breathless. In Malum 1, I was full of ‘no way’ and ‘oh my gosh where is this going’? In Malum 2, all questions from part I were answered, and you have left me spent and emotional.
Congratulations on a well-done book and I can’t wait for what’s next!!
