ONLY THROUGH BLOOD CAN THE DEEPEST REDEMPTION BE FOUND…
He was born to ascend.
He was destined to lead.
He was never meant to fail.
Prophet Cain lies broken and defeated on the floor of his cell. A cell he has been thrown into by the one person who was supposed to stand by his side until the end. His flesh and blood, his only companion. His beloved twin brother.
Cain has sacrificed everything for his people. He left the safety and security of his life of study to infiltrate the infamous Hades Hangmen. He lived with them, rode with them, and then betrayed them. All in the name of a faith he can now feel slipping away from him. Like everything else he once held dear…
But then his isolation is broken. Another prisoner is brought to the cell next to his. A woman fighting her own demons and fears. A woman who Cain understands needs him, as he needs her.
As the connection between them grows, so does Cain’s resolve. He will right the wrongs he has done. He will atone for the evil acts carried out in his name. He will save the one he loves…
… Even if the battle takes him to the gates of hell itself.

OMFG Tillie Cole, this woman is amazing. Her books just hit you deep down in your soul. I have read the other 3 books in this series and as Flame is my favorite, I do believe Cain “Rider” could possible take his spot.
If you have read the first three books, which you should have, then you know we are now following Prophet Cain and his journey from hell and back. We follow Cain as he left the Hades Hangmen and reunited with his twin brother Judah. Cain is now realizing that being the next Prophet and all the duties that in tales with it is not something he wants. He tries to change the ways of his people and stop the brutal, disgusting ways they were brought up. Judah is not happy with this and throws Cain in a cell and away from their people till he repents.
That’s when he meets Harmony. There is a crack in the wall of the cell and he can see and hear her on the other side. Harmony is classed as a “Cursed” and will marry Judah, who has taking over being the fake Prophet Cain. Harmony has lived her life in Puerto Rico hiding out from the New Zion until they are all called in to all be together. Harmony is kept in a cell next to Cain and they form a bond together as they talk every day and ever y night to comfort one another.
Cain is beaten to an inch of his life just about every day and Harmony can’t take it anymore. He is brought back into his cell one day and she asks her guards to be taken into his cell to tend to his wounds. That is when she notices that he looks exactly like the Prophet Cain she has met and is being forced to marry. That’s when the truth all comes out for both parties.
This is an emotional roller coaster of a book. My heart plummeted at least a dozen times while reading this book. Get a box of tissues when reading this book.
Tillie’s writing is absolutely beautiful and captures you with the first sentence, I couldn’t put this book down and will now patiently wait till the next one comes out, it will be hard.
