“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.

Fight, Morgan.

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!

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews


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.

Now that all books in the serial are out – you should run over to your favorite e-retailer and one-click it. You won’t be sorry. Well, maybe a little, when you end up biting your nails all the way down. Here are the links for ease :

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.

Feels :

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.

Fave Quotes - (un)Conventional Bookviews

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?

  1. 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.
