Deviants (Badlands Book Two) by Natalie Bennett
🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 I NEED MORE HATS from Julia!
As I’ve just finished Deviants I’m left pretty speechless. Deviants is a bloodied, twisted, degraded, sinful, and vile read. I loved every single page of it! I’ll go ahead and warn you now, do not read without reading Savages first. Also this isn’t a book for the faint hearted. Cali and Romero are so fecking amazing together. They are both bloodthirsty, immoral, perverted, and the perfect king and queen of the Badlands. Natalie Bennett has a way with words and seamlessly knocks you on your ass while teleporting you into a world you aren’t sure you’d ever survive. It’s a world I want to revisit over and over again.
Cali has finally decided to let the chains go on her inner demon and selfishly take whatever she wants. Romero is still his secreted self and their relationship will go down as my top favorite sick couple. Romero and Cali feed off of each other, they also feed off of death and blood. We find out so many secrets, we are also left with a few questions that will never be answered because Romero doesn’t want to answer those. Maybe we will get it with Grimm and Arlen’s books. Romero has me wrapped around his pinky and I want to know every single thing that makes him tick. Cali and Romero together equals psychopathic heaven.
I’m more in love with this book than I thought possible. Even though I’ve just finished this book I’m itching to go back and read it again. I’m still new to dark reads and Natalie Bennett has me hooked beyond belief. The characters and world building are flawless. The savagery of the world is what I’d expect if something like that happened now. Survival of the fittest. A king needs his queen, and Romero found that in Cali.
