Betrayal is easy, sex is a weapon, and information is power. Maggie Madison sits in the lofty towers of her city during the day, but at night she lurks the seedy underbelly, looking to snare the man who stole her innocence. Her simple quest becomes complicated when she meets a man who is as light as she is dark, as straightforward as she is deceptive. When a villain rises and sets her world alight, she must weigh her need for revenge against the good of the city she vowed to protect.
So, I have finally read The Matriarch and I’m not going to lie, I am SO pleasantly surprised. Being a creature of habit I often gravitate to books with similar storylines, tropes and endings BUT when a reliable source tells you, you have to read a certain book, regardless of whether it fits into your criteria; you do so.
Sloane Howell blows me away with this action packed, adrenaline fueled story about a young girl who is given the short end of the stick and forced into survival mode. Perfecting the depth of his character Maggie Madison, I am captivated by the essence and direction of his erotic superhero romance novel.
“You must be a symbol for the people. You must protect them. In nature, there is no greater protector than a mother.”
Moving to a new town with her twin brother Kyle and parents, The Madison family is on a mission to bring goodness into this place of darkness and destitution. However with different rules and regulations Maggie and her family are put in the direct line of danger and it appears that the future filled with positivity is not on the cards.
Blood, death and torture are just a smidgen of what Maggie Madison is left to endure. As she witnesses the demise of her family, she is forced into prostitution and the themes of anger, revenge and justice are born. Determined to make it right and save the young and innocent from the life she was subjected to Maggie Madison becomes The Matriarch.
Well versed in the art of sex and seduction The Matriarch uses what she knows and the skills she’s acquired along the way to become the people’s protector. Walking a fine line between justice and revenge, Sloane Howell brings to life a character that embodies strength, persistence and loyalty. Pushing the boundaries and intertwining different genres Howell successfully has readers engrossed in the Matriarch and her journey.
Showcasing his creativity Howell delivers secondary characters and subplots that enhance the action, mystery and turmoil surrounding Maggie Madison. With twists, turns and revelations that will have you on the edge of your seat, The Matriarch is a perfect combination of suspense, sex and spirit. With an ending that will leave you speechless, Sloane Howell has left his mark as one to watch. With nothing but excitement and anticipation I (not so) patiently await book two.
