Ally Vance is the next Cavalieri Della Morte author I’m reviewing. Her contribution to the shared world series is Delinquent, the story of Seth Galahad and Leeann. As a reminder, each book is a standalone, but the series is all interconnected, so you will get some crossover with other main characters showing up in the book. Arthur is in all of the books, in one form or another, just because he’s the leader of the CDM, so I’m not counting him as a true crossover character.
Seth is the youngest of the CDM that we’ve met so far, he’s right around 20. He’s very impulsive and yet disciplined, if that makes sense. While he’s still an assassin, he’s often the one that Arthur sends out to collect debts. Either he gets the money or people get dead. Caryn owes Arthur money, so he sends Seth out after her. She calls Seth and tells him that she has the repayment for him. What she doesn’t necessarily tell him is that it’s a woman.
Leeann has a brother, Arron. Arron is a fuckhole. He has a gambling problem. He’s supposed to be going to meetings to handle his gambling, but apparently he doesn’t think he needs to do that. Instead, he decides what he really needs to do is to keep gambling. So he does, and when he doesn’t win, he bets the one thing that he shouldn’t, his little sister. He told her the night he came home after losing her, and locked her in her bedroom. That night, two thugs came and took her away, locking her in a basement, and being not all that nice to her for days on end. Then along comes Seth.
I have a 23 year old son who is often impulsive AF, and the brain hasn’t really matured until around 25, so I totally get Seth. I understand exactly who he is, and where he is coming from. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to give him a dope slap upside the back of his head. There is a time or two when he realllllly needs one. Overall, though, I do like him.
Leeann is a sweet and loving person, she even loves her brother even if he’s a fuckhole. I really do like her. Even though she’s sweet, that doesn’t mean that she’s not fierce, and she totally is. She keeps trying to get away from any and everyone, no matter what. She’s just going to keep fighting, which means she’s full of fire, and I like that fire. I think that she’ll be perfect for Seth and he’ll be good for her.
There are some hints to certain things, if you are paying attention to them. They are very, very tiny hints, so you need to watch for them. And no, I’m not going to tell you what they are or what they’re too. I can be mean like that.
OK, that’s all for today. Go check it out! Happy reading!
