Raze (Scarred Souls #1) by Tillie Cole


To take back life, one must first face death...

One man stripped of his freedom, his morals...his life.

Conditioned in captivity to maim, to kill and to slaughter, prisoner 818 becomes an unremorseful, unrivaled and unstoppable fighter in the ring. Violence is all he knows. Death and brutality are the masters of his fate.

After years of incarceration in an underground hell, only one thought occupies his mind: revenge...bloody, slow and violent revenge.

Revenge on the man who lied.

Revenge on the man who wronged him.

Revenge on the man who condemned him and turned him into this: a rage-fueled killing machine. A monster void of humanity; a monster filled with hate.

And no one will stand in the way of getting what he wants.

One woman stripped of her freedom, her morals...her life.

Kisa Volkova is the only daughter of Kirill ‘The Silencer’ Volkov, head of the infamous ‘Triad’ bosses of New York's Russian Bratva. Her life is protected. In reality, it’s a virtual prison. Her father’s savage treatment of his rivals and his lucrative and coveted underground gambling ring—The Dungeon—ensures too many enemies lurk at their door. 

She dreams to be set free.

Kisa has known only cruelty and loss in her short life. As manager of her father’s death match enterprise, only grief and pain fill her days. Her mafia boss father, in her world, rules absolute. And her fiancé, Alik Durov, is no better; the Dungeon’s five-time champion, a stone-cold killer, the treasured son of her father’s best friend, and her very own—and much resented—personal guard. Unrivaled in both strength and social standing, Alik controls every facet of Kisa’s life, dominates her every move; keeps her subdued and dead inside...then one night changes everything. 

While working for her church—the only reprieve in her constant surveillance—Kisa stumbles across a tattooed, scarred, but stunningly beautiful homeless man on the streets. Something about him stirs feelings deep within her; familiar yet impossibly forbidden desires. He doesn’t talk. Doesn’t communicate with anyone. He’s a man beyond saving, and a man she must quickly forget...for both their sakes. 

But when weeks later, out of the blue and to her complete surprise, he’s announced as the replacement fighter in The Dungeon, Kisa knows she’s in a whole lot of trouble. He’s built, ripped and lethally unforgiving to his opponents, leaving fear in his wake and the look of death in his eyes. 

Kisa becomes obsessed with him. Yearns for him. Craves his touch. Needs to possess this mysterious man...this man they call Raze.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, excessive violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.


For any of you who know me I have never hidden the fact that Tillie Cole is my favourite author of all time. Her books are so beautiful and every word she writes is truly inspiring. So because the sequel to Raze will be out soon I have decided to write a little review for this stunning book as I had not yet started my blog when this was released. 

Raze will be one of the best books you will ever read. Raze and Kisa's love story is so deeply heartbreaking that i still cry everytime i think about it. Raze is one of the most complex characters i have ever read with his memory loss and the amount of torture and pain he has been through. He is such an amazing hero and he makes himself so vulnerable when he is with Kisa that you can actually feel the love these people share. I say people because they are so much more than characters. I have to literally remind myself at times that these are fictional characters and i need to put down the ben and jerry's ice cream. 

Kisa is such a likeable heroine and has had to make the best of the terrible situation she finds herself in. However, it is not until later in the book you realise just how strong she is and the extent of what she will go through for Raze. You can't read this book without gazing at this couple in awe. 


I can't even begin to tell you how much you need this book in your life. Really any Tillie Cole book but as Reap shall be with you shortly make the best decision you may possibly every make and purchase Raze now.
