The Rebirth of Sin
The Wicked Trinity Series, Book #2
By Courtney Lane
Dark Erotic Thriller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“You think this is rebellion? You think you’re fighting? You’re running straight to what you should be running away from.”
Once upon a time I thought Pepper Winters was the master of dark books. That was until I read one of Courtney Lane's book: The Sect. As I said in my review for the first book, it was probably the darkest book I've read. The Rebirth of Sin definitely measures to the Sect... It's even worse.
The book is divided in three parts and you will need time to process everything you read.
Part one is brutal in every sense of the way. You absolutely have to read The Sect in order to comprehend what's happening here... And I'm not sure you will fully grasp what's really happening.
While at first The Sect was meant to be a stand-alone, I understood immediately the need to go further. There was something unfinished in Keaton's story. I was happy how it ended but there was a taste of not enough.
“Because you’re in love with me. It’s a very, very dangerous state to be in around me."
I thought I knew everything when I started my ARC for The Rebirth of Sin, I thought I knew how the story would go or I was hoping for some stuff to happen but I was so wrong! Nothing went as I planed.
Courtney Lane took EVERYTHING I knew and everything I took for granted and CRUSHED it. I was speechless! I didn't know what to believe, what to think. I was lost but damn it was GOOD
“I lie to you constantly, Keaton. The sad thing is, I don’t think you’ll ever know what’s true and what’s false about me.”
What I've come to know about Courtney Lane is that I can't tell you much about the story itself. It will ruin the effect for you. Her books are most certainly best experiences without knowing a lot.
Even telling how I felt during my read can be spoiler-ish. I'm scared you'll know what details is important and you will expect to feel a certain way.
Courtney Lane has this capacity to captivate me from the start! I read the first part of the book in a matter of hours. I have to admit I needed a small break after everything I witnessed. It was a lot to take in (view spoiler)[ and it was hard for what I thought I knew. I couldn't believe what I read. Nothing made sense and my mind wouldn't believe it! I saw the HEA I thought I got falling apart. (hide spoiler)]
In part two, a lot of things begins to make sense. I have to admit if Courtney Lane planed this all along she is a fucking genius!
I dare you to tell me all your theories! I got many. Some stuff happening crossed my mind but to actually read everything, I can tell you many of my theories weren't true!
I have no good advice on how to experiment the book. Just know you will want to DNF the book, Courtney push our own limits to the maximum and certainly beyond. But you have to trust her to bring some sense into this madness.
I'm anxious, thrilled, expecting and even hopeful for the future. This being the second book in a series of 4 makes me restless to know more. I want to be a small little mouse or even a bee to know what Courntey has in store for us.
I know just one thing: I won't believe anything until the end! I won't make any other judgement and I won't take for granted anything before knowing what's happening and before the word END is on the last page.

About the Author
COURTNEY LANE has been creating her own little world since she was very young.
While many of her works touch several different genres, she has an archetype when it comes to the female protagonists in her stories — they have to have certain brand of strength, be deeply flawed, and harbor layered personalities. In her books you will find themes that reflect the darker side of life with a tremendous amount of depth and complexity. She also has an affinity for characters that aren't necessarily the girl or boy next door, or the people you'd encounter in everyday life. In other words, she prefers to explore characters who aren't easy to fall in love with.
Currently, Courtney can be found either working on her next book, playing the latest role-playing game on her X-Box (preferably a game by BioWare), or spending time with her family
