Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

The is the BEST fucking Hangmen book to date in my opinion, people, I shit you not.


Seriously, I can't WAIT for all you ladies to get your hands on this thing.

All I can say is, Tillie Cole is one talented bitch.

And yes, I can call her "bitch."

Because that's, like, a compliment in Hangmen-Land, after all.


Now, Tillie has been very clear that she doesn't want ANY spoilers in any of the ARC reviews.

Even the broken, through love, can find grace.

Damnable Grace blew me away. I love the entire Hangman series. These books are unlike any other MC books out there. I’m going to try to keep this one short, sweet, and spoiler free- because the impact it will have on you reading it will be huge. This story is emotional, moving, and brutal at times. Yes, it’s truly brutal. In a lot of ways, it’s the darkest of the Hangman books.

Wow, this was one crazy assed ride. Damnable Grace: A Chilling fucked up romantic suspense by Tillie Cole is the fifth book in the Hades Hangmen Trilogy.
Meet Ak and Phebe. Both are broken lost souls, both have demons to fight and lay to rest.
And so it begins.

Warning: “Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.”

4.5 Stars

I’m going to start by saying that, after finishing all the books in the series so far (including novellas), I believe Damnable Grace is the darkest, hardest one to read.

I can’t even begin to explain how truly messed up and horrifying Phebe’s life has been.

This book had some of the most horrible abuse scenes I’ve read and I feel somewhat weird in saying that I loved the story regardless, but I did.

AK was different than the previous leading male characters because he was less open e

I was a bit scared I wasn’t going to like this book. I got tired of reading about the cult, New Zion and all that cray cray shit. Luckily, this book was not focused on the cult too much. Not that it’s any less cray cray but at least it's a new level of crazy.

Did I enjoy it? Yes. No. Yes. I don't know. Some parts were so brutal that the use of the term ‘enjoyment’ seems kind of wrong. But it certainly deserves all the stars for quality.

"In the comfort of his safe embrace, I let sleep pull me under. My body protected in his arms...and perhaps my soul too."

Damnable Grace is the fifth book in the Hades Hangmen Series. The Hades are an MC and band of brothers that are rough, raw, and loyal to each other and their women. Each Hangmen is unique, and their journey to love is paved with strife and affliction. The perseverance of the club continues to drive these men to protect the innocent and persecute the guilty.

Like all of the 'Hades Hangmen' books, 'Damnable Grace' is one that will rip your heart out. This series definitely tackles some offensive and upsetting content. It is not a series that will appeal to many readers because of the tough subject matter.

If you're like me, and love dark books that push your limits and make you cringe, then 'Damnable Grace' is a great one. The fifth book in the series, it centers on Phebe and AK. If you've followed this series, you'll remember AK as the "leader" of t

Nothing I will say in this review will make much sense as I am still coming down from the emotional ride this book took me on.

I wanted a dark read and I sure got what I wanted with this one. I think Phebe broke my heart most out of all the leading females in this series. After knowing parts of her story from earlier books I knew it was going to be sad but shit this just tore my heart out. Phebe had every reason to find solace in any substance she c

After finishing this book, I had to take a few minutes (it was really all night) to regain my composure. It left me awestruck, flabbergasted, discombobulated, happy, sad, angry, floored, and oddly satisfied. I just needed a moment to get it together.

I'm a huge fan of the Hades Hangmen series. HUGE!! I've found each book to be incredible and DAMNABLE GRACE was no exception. Each leading man has wormed their way into my heart and AK received a w

Overall Opinion: This was an enjoyable story about AK. I've been anxious to get his story for a while! Ms. Cole did it again, and made me like and root for, Phebe, who I previously had bad feelings about in her books. I think she is the master at this! She does it so well in Sweet Hope and in Deep Redemption, that I'm not all that surprised! I would've liked more time with them as a couple, and a better epilogue though. I just wanted more of them!

I thought i would need to mentally prepare for the "nasty" things in this book that have a way to majorly set me on fire and pissing the fuck out of me, BUT in fact I was pretty damn cool.

Yes, the pedophilic vile shit the despicable low-life sick mother fuckers did was just that...a despicable vile shit and since i knew that Tillie Cole would 'go there' i was ready for it.

The horrid things those women/children went through is beyond comprehention and beyond reason but somehow I couldnt relate to

Sister Phebe has been a recurring character in the previous novels. She has always been a devout follower of The Order of David, and her actions have directly lead to the detriment of our previous Heroines. It’s fair to say I struggled to hold any affection for her until the previous novel. Her moment of clarity came after the horrifying acts against her sister, Lilah.

Although not a "Cursed women of Eve" Phebe had a role to play in the Order. As a "Sacred Sister" she had been groomed at a young

A summary of me reading this book, as portrayed in gifs:











Oh. I guess you want an actual review now? Okay, well if I must...

Honestly I never know where to begin with these novels. EVERYTHING feels like a spoiler, and I also kinda feel that reviewing is pointless because anyone who's started the series is gonna finish it, right?! That's how I feel. I don't care if all my GR friends gave this a 1-star, I'd still read it. But I'll try to give you some of my thoughts.

I have loved every book in this series and this one was no exception.

When words fail

First I want to be clear that these books can not be read as stand-alone novels and they should be read in order. Second, there are a lot of triggers in these books, the author warns for those in the blurb and in the books themselves.

I will try and write a review, but it's hard. I don't want to spoiler anything, because I think these books should be enjoyed without any spoilers.....

"The damned souls who together found grace."

I think it is almost impossible for me to rate any book in this series below a 4.5 stars. Tillie Cole has created such an intricate and haunting world with characters who are so complicated. All of them are looking for a light in the darkness that is their life. I was looking forward to AK's story, because he intrigued me a lot. I wanted to know about his background, and what happened to make him join th

So I've finally finished this book and may need to be clinically checked for depression and alcoholism. Haha. Kidding but not kidding :)

Ms Cole sure knows how to rain down tears and hardships on me like I'm her golden shower gimp, and I soaked up everything she gave, cos I'm a masochist like that!

Brutality, hardships, painful memories, more hardships, more pain.... By 90%, I was wondering if there was ever gonna be any silver lining

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to AK. From the previous books, we knew that AK is part of the Psycho Trio. We knew that he rescued Flame. We knew that he had a thing for Red. But in this book, this wonderful book, we learn more about the man behind the AK sniper rifle.

And who better to help us see how sweet and caring AK can be than our lovely heroine - Phebe. She definitely has the worst back story of all the commune

Holy cow this was a tough, emotional read. This entire series has been emotional, full of heart and at times difficult to read, but this book just hurt me so much more.

Phebe isn't like the other women she was actually groomed to seduce and to serve as a sex slave. She is then taken by a Klan cult leader to be his possession and drugged into submission.

I felt her in my arms. “You are, just by being here,” I said. “You help because you understand. No other person has ever understood me like you do.” I held her close. “You understand me, and I get you.”

This book is captivating and powerful. Both Ak and Phebe suffered and it was terrible. They were awesome together. The beginning was very strong, but in the middle the pace flawed but it was still enjoyable.
