Our Review

‘I had killed. I had avenged. I had loved. I had destroyed lives and now it was my time to pay for being the Grim fucking Reaper, taking lives that didn’t belong to me. I just never thought my life would end like this.’

Hands down one of our favourite reads of 2016. No word of a lie, one of our favourite anti-heroes of all time. Yes, this book just grabbed us and didn’t let go till we’d read the last page. Without question El Diablo is our favourite book to date by M. Robinson. Wow…just wow it had us consumed and we have to applaud M Robinson for staying true to her characters and never sacrificing the story or their natural journey. For never giving anything away. For surprising us.

“Even the Devil was an Angel once, Alejandro. It’s only a matter of time until you become El Diablo, too.”

We loved that Alejandro’s story -because for us it truly was his story- started from an early age and took us right up to a mature older age- so decades. We felt we lived his dark, gritty and raw story alongside him. El Diablo- yes, he sure was, in so many respects. He really worked hard to gain our affection and understanding because cold and hard doesn’t even come close. But this talented Author placed some very clever and brilliant moments of transparency where you saw a side of him which you needed to see in order to fully understand the man beneath the role he was groomed to fill. A boy and young man who loved his Mum and sister with all his heart and then some. A man who never fails to try to protect those he cares about. A man who tries his all to keep people at an arm’s length in fear of them getting caught in a deadly crossfire. A man who truly just needs someone by his side loving him and loving El Diablo in equal measure.

“I can’t go back. I can’t change the things I’ve done. I am who I am. It’s too late, the darkness settled in. I own it now. It owns me. Please forgive me.”

So much tragedy, hate, despair and violence. Seriously, how many times could our hearts break in one story? Not only that, how many times would they break over one man and his love? Captivatingly visual story of Crime family’s loyalties, expectations and tragic consequences.

‘Music and dance were my peace. They made me feel whole. Turning and twisting, leaping through the air as if I had been a swan in captivity all my life. Finally, free.’

Sweet, sassy, strong, vulnerable- child victim of life, Lexi. The beautiful ballerina. She came into a story that had taken many paths only to play a momentous and powerful role. The girl, the teenager then the woman. She was a force. If words and actions could maim; her body would be marked by uncountable scarring.

‘His face inches away from mine, he opened his dark, dilated eyes, they were vacant of any life. Black pools stared down at me as I finally realized, I just met…El Diablo.’

We had no idea where this story was taking us, sure we had an inkling to some but we were surprised, and we LOVE being surprised. The writing was stellar- the story fabulous. We cannot recommend El Diablo highly enough as it was a passionate tearjerker that stole our hearts and minds. We fell in love with The Devil.

‘Every side of him consumed me. Every part of him engulfed me. He was mine. No matter what.’

‘Maybe there were just some people in the world that were born alone and died alone.’

Synopsis

I was ruthless.
I was feared.
I had sacrificed. Myself. Her. Everything…

Living in a world where I was worth more dead than alive was a choice. I was a bad man, never claimed to be anything else. I’ve done things I’m not proud of. Seen things that can’t be unseen. I’ve caused pain that I can’t undo.
It was all my choice.
Every decision.
Every order.
Right and wrong never mattered.
Until her.
She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.
But who was going to save her…

From. Me. The devil himself.

Fate brought us together. Destiny destroyed us.

    This book was totally amazing… I loved everything about it, I cried when he got shot I couldn’t read on, my heart broke “literally” but I did and I was just going crazy with happiness…. Lexi loved him longer than she was alive… I fell in love with the devil that day… I didn’t want the story to end.. Congratulations on a perfect book Mr. Robinson..
