Book Review: Souls Unfractured

Souls Unfractured (Hades Hangmen #3)
by Tillie Cole

"For fractured souls are like magnets.
Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…"

Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in. Free from endless years of physical and mental torment.

Just… free…

At age twenty-one, the timid and shy Maddie is content to live within the confines of her new home—safe from the outside world, safe from harm and, strangely, protected by the Hangmen’s most volatile member; the heavily pierced and tattooed, Flame.


The man who ceaselessly watches over her with his midnight dark and searing eyes. The man who protects her with a breath-taking intensity. And the man who stirs something deep within her numbed heart.

But when circumstances conspire for Flame to need HER help, Maddie bravely risks it all for the broken man who has captivated her fragile soul.

The Hangmen’s most infamous member, Flame, is ruled by one thing—anger. Plagued by haunting demons from his past, an all-consuming rage, and isolated by an abhorrent hatred of being touched, Flame's days are filled with suffocating darkness, pierced only by a single ray of light—Maddie. The shy, beautiful woman he cannot purge from his thoughts. The woman he has an overwhelming need to possess…
... the only person who has ever been able to touch him.

Flame’s mission in life is to protect Maddie, to keep her safe. Until a trigger from his troubled past sends him spiraling into madness, trapping him in the deepest recesses of his disturbed mind.

His Hangmen brothers fear that Flame is beyond saving.

His only hope of salvation: Maddie and her healing light.

Dark Contemporary Romance.

TeriLyn's thoughts: The power of Tillie Cole's writing knows no bounds, in my humble reviewing opinion. I have devoured and loved every Tillie Cole story I've read am a forever fan. With the Hades Hangmen series she's created characters who so easily plant themselves within my reading heart. But with Souls Unfractured, with Flame and his Maddie/Maddie and her Flame - she elevated this series even higher. There is nothing to prepare you for the wickedly tormented pasts of Flame and Maddie, nothing will stop the tears. These two, these two extremely fragile, broken characters embody pain and hope and dark and light and love and hate within themselves and through a kinship, a friendship, a relationship so potent it'll knock you sideways.

Ms. Cole's writing is as strong as ever and really just very incredible at that. Her words read as your heart pumps full of adrenaline reliving the anguish Flame and Maddie have survived. It breaks when they're telling each other of their dreadful, awful, twisted pasts. It soars when they're together and rejoices in how much they mean to each other, in knowing each of these broken characters have given each other the chance to heal. Tillie Cole knows how to tell a great story and there's nothing else quite like Souls Unfractured.

There are many, many, many great reviews on this book, on this series as a whole. It's a book to prepare yourself for reading. Souls Unfractured is the best of the three as Tillie Cole packed it with everything: great losses and gains, emotion, angst, torture - honestly the gambit of emotions I felt during this journey can hardly be relayed. If you've followed the Hades Hangmen series you're aware of the significance of Flame and Maddie, you know a little bit of what they went through - trust me when I tell you, Tillie Cole goes beyond what you ever thought these two people could have possibly endured. If you haven't started this series, well, what are you waiting for?
