Unfortunately I have not read the first book in this series ,but that did not stop me from enjoying the rest,

DESOLATE:
★★★★★
Wow! What an exciting thriller.
Ryan has been released from the mental hospital where he has been for 18 years. The doctor is convinced he is no longer a danger to the public. Ryan was never crazy, just a soulless evil person. He manipulates the weak useless humans around him. Now he is free to return to the pleasure of his kind of life.
Blake is Ryan's big brother, and a cop. He has a wife and daughter that he loves with all his heart. Now they may be in danger, so he must protect them.
This is the second book with these characters . I have not read the first one but loved every page of this one. It has a lot of violence and brutality, just what you expect from this genre. This is a book that is very hard to put down. Be warned it could give you nightmares.
Ryan is a very scary man. When you are in the book from his point of view it feels real. Poor Blake can't seem to do anything to stop the inevitable. The more he tries to protect his family the worse things get.

VACANT:
.★★★★★
This is the 3rd book of the series, and must be read in order.
Ooohhh What a twisted imagination this author has. I love it.
Cereus has enrolled in college, to pursue her love of art, but all she seems to be able to paint is her uncle Ryan. He died in a house fire. She had a strong connection to him, he was the only one who understood the darkness in her.
One of the other girls is determined to belittle Cereus every chance she gets.
This is a wonderful twisted tale of the darkest side of a girls mind.

Wow. Yep this was. Just wow. Ker did it again. And I'm sad that it's all over. Ryan holds a special place in my heart.
Cereus too. She totally rocked.
I'm so so sad that there will be no more. And that open ending has my mind in over drive. I have so many mind made endings *covers eyes* #overactivetwistedbrain #spontaneity.
Now off to indulge in some more dark #facade here I come xx

This box set is one of the most brilliant dark box sets I've ever read. Each story unfolds and you have no idea where these characters are going to end up. Blake, Ryan, Mel & Cereus are characters that you won't soon forget. Their twisted tale of love and loyalty will push every boundary that you have and then push some more. I love a book where you cheer for the bad guy, but what do you do when you aren't sure who the real bad guy is?

Empathy sets the stage and tells the beginning. Back when you thought you knew the story. You knew where these characters were going to go. Then Ker went and threw everything you thought out the window.

Desolate takes place 18 years after Empathy. When the "normalcy" was supposed to happen. Come on, did you really think everything was going to be sunshine and kittens? I think this was my favorite out the box set. It really showed the characters true colors.

Vacant is the one book that I thought was heartbreaking. My entire outlook on Ryan changed beginning with this book. It also became Cereus's awakening, so to speak.

Deadly is the conclusion to this messed up tale of twisted love and loyalty. It couldn't have ended any better. But beware for those looking for their HEA....a HEA is subjective. For me, it was perfect. My heart ached for these characters.

I really don't want to give too much away because it will spoil it for you, the reader. Ker Dukey is one of my favorite dark authors and books like this are the reason why. I love an author that can make me think, an author that can make me love an unlovable character, and let me tell you, you won't always love these characters. Or maybe you're like me, and you will.

This series is just amazing - it's an ominous tale about dark and twisted love and loyalty between abnormal deviant characters involved in distorted and unhealthy relationships - the whole thing is quite depraved. Despite this I really felt for all the characters at one point or another during the series and on occasion even rooted for them regardless of their actions. It has made me wonder what this says about me that I am able to empathise with such characters; although, it is very well written so it could just be that the author's talent has managed to elicit such a response from me. Whatever the case maybe I was totally engrossed from beginning to end and read the whole thing in a day and half and totally recommend it, but it most definitely isn't for the faint hearted. It's the type of book that challenges the black and white world view and makes one aware of how grey it all really is, and that ultimately all actions have consequences.

Ker Dukey is a fantastic British author who has created this series, which I would describe as a dark psychological thriller.

The series begins with Empathy, introducing brothers Blake and Ryan, who come from a destructive childhood, and Melody, the female lead. Things are never what they seem in this series, I begin thinking that Blake was the dangerous character, however, as the story develops, Melody becomes an obsession for both Ryan and Blake, with both men taking dangerous risks, and with that, Ryan’s darker character becomes apparent. The final scenes can only be described as disturbing, shocking and brilliant and the epilogue is fantastic.

Desolate continues the story, set some years later, with Ryan about to be released from a mental institution. Whilst his obsession with Melody continues, he begins to turn his focus and obsession to Cereus, Blake and Melody’s daughter. Ryan continues his dangerous behaviours, and you will find yourself becoming fascinated with the lengths he will go to achieve his goal. This is magnified when Ryan, discovers a kindred sprit in Cereus, and the thrilling ride continues as you discover who will win her attention – Ryan, or her parents as they attempt to save Cereus from her uncle.

In Vacant, you find Ryan-obsessed Cereus, unable to fit into her normal college life, craving the release Ryan and his support gives her. Her parents are terrified that Ryan will find her again and what that will mean for her future, but are Ryan and Cereus destined to be together no matter what?

Deadly continues the story again where you see how Cereus develops dangerous behaviour, and she finds that she enjoys the release she gets from taking lives.
