My name is Faith: Tortured sex slave turned brutal murderer. Men have abused my body for inhuman pleasures, hurt me and made me feel helpless. But now...

They fear me. I wish I could say that it is all for the good of the world that I kill them slowly and give them a taste of what they have made others feel, but that would be a lie. Turns out, I have a lust for blood and ge

Serial Murderess Series

so I'm going to do things a bit different here and review all three books in the Serial Murderess Series together but giving my brief impression on each instalment.
So I'm not normally one for trigger warnings but with this, you need one; this is dark depraved sick stuff proceed with caution.
If like me that sentence is like honey to a bee just be aware that at times this was even a bit too much for me and that's something I don't usually say.

“Thoughts of revenge turn the soft orange sunrise into a bloody horizon begging for me to chase it, and I have never felt such incredible lightness.”

Holy cow! What a crazy, wild, bloody ride.... It’s like “Natural Born Killers” met “50 Shades” and they had a psycho baby. I couldn’t put it down.

If you’re not into dark fiction / dark erotica then let me say right up front The Darkness in Faith may not be for you. Now, even if you’re nodding your head and thinking “Yeah, I don’t do the da

3 'trigger warning' stars

I guess Dexter made heroes of serial killers. This one is OTT on dark, raw, gritty and gory stuff about a very damaged girl who becomes a depraved serial killer. What happens when she meets someone who makes her feel something (albeit not normal) for someone else with perhaps the same sociopathology? This one ends in a cliffie - kind of.

I’d never heard of this author until I saw a post about a blog tour for this series. I couldn’t resist giving it a try and I’m so glad I did.

This is book one and what a great start to this series. Faith is a bad ass character. Her past has made her into the person she is now. She’s certainly unique. She’s now trying her best to get rid of the bad guys. Revenge has turned Faith into a serial murderess.

Although I felt parts of this was rushed and the story needs tightening up I really enjoyed th

The Darkness in Faith

By C. F. Rabbiosi

This book is truly sick, but, since that is exactly what it sets out to be, that’s a good thing. I found it a well written, profoundly dark sexual horror story.

This is the story of a female serial killer, who targets, tortures and kills sexual predators. It tells the story of how she came to be what she is, in a way that makes her a sympathetic character. How could she be anything else, other than a hollow husk, after all she’s endured. It follows her stalk

3.5 - 4 stars

As promised this book delivers on being a dark erotic story. If rape is even the slightest of triggers for you, I advise approaching with caution. I've read many books with dub/non-con and this one still pushed my buttons. This is not dubious consent, this is out-and-out rape, with some very depraved scene, in your face dark.

I really enjoyed when Faith took control of her life, sick as her actions were, and was hopeful when she met the handsome stranger. However, I struggled to und

The author was skillful in the way she wrote this story, the tale of an abused woman turned serial killer. Her victim of choice? Sexual predators. The abuse is very easy to see in the MCs mind and that’s what made it such a compelling read as we see her stalk her next victim, her biggest challenge yet.

This book is twisted and dark so if your stomach turns easily, this is not the story for you.

**I received a copy of this book through netgalley in exchange for an honest review **

This was first book i have read in the thriller erotica type of genre and this type of plot. There are definite triggers in this story so beware of that before going in. I enjoyed this book enough to finish reading it, but not enough to get the second or third in the trilogy. Not because it is a bad book, i just had a hard time connecting with the characters.

What an absolutely brilliant read! I was drawn in by the blurb and cover, and this book definitely did not let me down. I was blown away by the excellent blend of sexy and thriller.

The main character in this book is excellent. She is living life after a nightmare, trying to get her own back, but then finds a bump in the road. He plan is thrown off, but she still maintains the same personality and fight she has from the beginning. I also like that she still maintains a way of seeing the good in

Let me start off by saying that I have already purchased the next book!

It's been my experience that people read as they drive. Well, you can ignore the warning signs if you want, you're in for a bumpy ride!

After a bit of a jumpy beginning, we settle in with Faith, a freaking force of nature!

They say we produce our environment which in turn produces us. The world can be a very dark place and Faith is it's poster child.

But she will not be denied. She is going to find her place in life even if she

Couldn't stop reading!

I love the twisted tale of love and death! This book fed my twisted soul and I'm ready for the next one! Amazing work!!

A great addition to the femme fatale canon. Lots of sex and gore on the platter, the twisted kind, where sexual predators may have vampire fantasies too, driving a stake into caves meant for human erectile tools. The plot was somewhat flimsy, requiring quite a bit of suspension of disbelief, but this doesn't pretend to be literary fiction. It's sick, perverted fun all the way, no holds barred. An oft-abused badass woman seeking revenge on men who commit similar atrocities on her gender, going to ...more

A female serial killer hunts bad guys, but in a completely different way than Alexandra Sokoloff’s character does. For one thing she’s married, living a double life, finding her victims on the internet and then luring them in with the promise, and sometimes reality, of sex.
When I saw this title, I thought it was going to be about faith, but that’s the character’s name.
Found it clever to introduce a male character that seems destined to be the story’s antagonist, except she polishes him off quick

There are many triggers through out the story; be forewarned.

Faith survived the black market for underage sex slaves and became a survivor turned serial killer. Faith lives a double life. She's married to a wealthy, honest, and hard-working man that loves her while she hunts rapists and gleefully tortures and rapes them before murdering and dismembering them. While staking out her next victim, she finds her match. He not only is dark and twisted like her, but he also accepts who they both are w

I think this is honestly the darkest book I’ve ever read and loved. Our story starts as Fredrick is with his first victim. The scene is very detailed. I was very much looking forward to seeing farther into his mind, but oh nooooooo. That’s not our story. Next we see Fredrick hunting his next victim. The scene seems to be repeating from the prior chapter, but nope our hunter quickly becomes our prey and we learn that this is actually Faith’s story.

Holy freaking hell. What did I just read? I rece

Wow!

I have read many dark romances, and The Darkness in Faith really pushed my boundaries! This story, written by C.F. Rabbiosi, is raw, gory, twisted, and I couldn’t stop reading! Sort of like a car accident, I needed to find out what happened to Faith and the reasons why she did what she did.

Make sure you read the blurb and the message from the author at the beginning of the book. This book is not for those that

Modern day Bonnie and Clyde

If you enjoy a dark, sadistic book then you will enjoy this book. Two tortured souls that want to make everyone that hurt them pay for it.

Make sure to get the rest of the books in the series to continue on this dark road.

I knew going into The Darkness in Faith, it would be a dark read and it is. However, I felt confused at times because I wasn’t sure if we were flashing to the last or in the present at times. The writing I feel could be stronger which would help us connect more with Faith. Faith is like the angel of death and seeks revenge for those who have their innocence’s ripped away like she did. I feel that the depth it went into at times was a little much, again it’s a dark read.

No more blood and guts.
Well... not the real kind, but damn how my work reflects the realism.
