“There’s no better wolf than a dead one.”
This is the end.
The sound of cars makes my heart beat faster. The sight of a bitumen road gives me hope. The faces of my family waiting for me are all I can see as I battle to survive.
I can’t look back.
I can’t cry out.
He is the Wolf, and I’m the thirteenth woman he has called his Red. This is his last chance to scratch my name from the list of bitches who’ve wronged him.
Will he claim my life?
“I’m coming for you, Red. It’s time to die. – The Wolf
Five Fights is the intense, action-filled, and amazing end to Belle Brooks’ The Game of Life series. It left me breathless!
There is still a lot going on in Five Fights, and I was unable to figure out who the Wolf was until it was finally revealed. I had suspected this character, but then thought I was wrong… Basically, I had more or lest suspected every single character there was. And I was completely blown away when it came to who it was that was helping the Wolf. I would have never, ever thought it was that character 😉
Five Fights was incredibly intense, and I am still reeling after reading it. The way the story unfolded was so well done, and the tension was at a peak all through this final installment.

Writing style :
Five Fights is written in first person point of view, present tense, which works extremely well for this kind of psychological thriller. As the reader follows different characters in their own chapters, we learn what the characters know at the same time as they learn it – and it is glorious. Or awful. You know – it can be either.
So much tension! My heart was beating so hard, and I almost dropped my kindle at one point because my hands were sweating. I was completely immersed in Five Fights, and went from surprise to surprise.
Shaky breaths part my lips. My jaw clenches tight at the same time as my hands. My stomach rolls like a tidal wave, then knots into a tight ball. Why haven’t we heard anything? Is no news good news?

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
This sounds like an incredible story, wifey! I’m going to have to check it out. And I won’t hold it against you when my nails are chewed and ragged. 😉 If an author can grab you like Brooks seems to have and surprise you as well…that’s says a lot.
It was so good, wifey! Brooks really, really did so well with this series. And now that they’re all out (and at $0.99 per novella!) You should definitely go for it. I’m sure you’ll love it, too!
quick question, would you mind if set a link from one of my blog posts to this review? Your words were the reason why I got this entire series 🙂
Oh my gosh! Of course I wouldn’t mind, Vi. That makes me so happy 🙂
