A. Zavarelli is single handedly responsible for my love of mafia romance, so when I saw she was releasing something similar with Natasha Knight, I knew I had to get my hands on it immediately! I didn't even read the blurb. I just trusted that it would be fucking fantastic, and I wasn't wrong! 


Santiago De La Rosa is hell-bent on revenge after someone kills his father and brother in an explosion that he himself barely makes it out of alive. Half his face is scarred beyond repair, and his soul i
anytime a mafia man is shown as this ruthless, revenge-driven killer but as the story progresses he becomes a lowkey softie I'm like:

Santiago was a cruel yet still, an empathetic anti-hero. I liked how naturally drawn to Ivy he was and how Ivy saw through his pain and the physical reminders of it. I love arranged marriage as a trope, add in the enemies aspect and a gradual progression of both MC's caring for each other, fighting the hate & I'm a goner. But that ending tho...

It’s unhealthy how ravenously I’ve been devouring these arrange marriage/ enemies to lovers books, but in my defense, I derive sustenance from these books it can’t be helped.

There are two authors that I trust to deliver an arranged marriage trope in such an awe inspiring way that it’ll leave your heart battered, your soul crumpled, and your sanity ravaged.
One is Natasha Knight and the other is A. Zavarelli. I have read both of

I must confess my fickle aesthetic mind was captured by this enticing cover, then I found out two top notch authors came together to deliver a sinful dark tale, and if I wasn’t already sold all my trusted reader friends confirmed this was, indeed, a must read. There was no choice but surrender. So now, here I am, to tell you, my fellow readers, if you haven’t sunk your teeth into this yet don’t wait any longer.

OMG THE ENDING !!!! This story has so many twist and turns. Santiago is a devil you will love to hate. I can't wait to get more of him. Seriously I better get more of him. Ivy is a good heroine and just what Santiago needs.. There are some dark parts and some sexy parts. I really hope one person gets what is coming to him and I'm pretty sure he will. This was a great story!! I loved it !! ...more

Mix these two together and you will have an incredible result!!!

I don't have much to say about the story except that nothing stands out. Like I haven't read about any of this 1001 times. 😑 A big bad guy (we have to take his word for that) marries a girl to execute his revenge and after some weird ass occultic ceremonies they embark on their sex fest mingled with spanking sessions.
Open any Natasha Knight's book and you'll find Ivy and Santiago there under different names and similar circumstances.

Wow - what the hell did I just read?! It’s been so long since I read some GOOD dark romance that just swallowed me up and wouldn’t let me go until the last word. How the heck is this the first time I’m reading either one of these authors? I’m punching my own face over here.

Silence and darkness. They are my two constant requirements in life.

The devilsh and talented duo of authors A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight offer with Requiem of the Soul a heart-pounding arranged marriage/revenge story.

How far would you go to get revenge against the family who destroyed yours? Santiago De La Rosa has certainly the determination and the ruthlessness to go through his plan. Taking the young Ivy as his bride, he has one thing in mind: to make her suffer.

I need to catch my breath... This story was intricately woven with dark secrets, mysterious pasts, a sizzling alphahole, and a twisted plot that has you begging for the next part of the story. Santiago is the hero you love to hate. He’s not for the faint of heart but he’s darkly delicious in that pitch black soul.

Dark and gritty read, with plenty of action. Santiago is back with ulterior motives. Ivy not given any choice. These two end up together. And go down one long and twisted journey.

Reparation of Sin, will be coming soon.

Requiem of the Soul (The society Trilogy) by Natasha Knight & A Zavarelli
Santiago De La Rosa has become a monster. The tragedy of his life catapults him into a realm of revenge, and forced him to own his legacy as head of his family, and take up the position within the IVI Society.
He commands respect as dictated by his lineage and his authority is never questioned.
The explosion that killed his father and brother, also left him scarred with the face of a monster and a heart blackened with reven

This story fucked up my mind!!

It took me three days to gather the courage to write this review and i can tell you it won't give justice to the perfection of Requiem of the Soul!!!

Because when two of the best authors work together to build up a new dark captiving world....

When the story they create it's utterly addictive and hocked you from the first page...

When reading that story become your only purpose, everything fade in the background and even eating lose its appeal ( and that's huge for me
4.5 stars

Romance and revenge collide

A story of the head of the de la Rosa power family, Santiago, and his vengeance against a non-sovereign family who brought fatal harm to the de la Rosa line; Ivy, the oldest daughter is to pay the price.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It reminded me old revenge-themed romances of yore but with a modern edge. As much as Santiago claims he will exact justice on Ivy is as much as you see his struggle -- and hers -- not to succumb to any loving feeling. In love

―“You belong to me now, Ivy Moreno, for better or for worse. Until death do us part.”

The moment the book went live, I hurried to my room―put a 'do not disturb me' sign―and devoured it in one extended sitting because right from the start, I was utterly riveted by this story. I couldn't bear to put it down.

Side note: the sign was useless because I was disturbed—several times. The audacity!


I never turn down a book with retold fairy tales. They are

I love and devour everything that Ashleigh Zavarelli writes and pair that with Natasha Knight, heck yes! Gimme gimme! 😍

Requiem of the Soul is unlike anything I've read. The talent these two authors have is incredible and makes for an absolute fire pairing! 🔥

Dynamic writing duo Natasha Knight and A Zavarelli have done it again! Both of these writers are absolutely brilliant in their own right but together they make magic and I cannot wait to see how the rest of this series continues.

Requiem of the Soul toes the line in dark, mafia romance. It's main premise is about a secret society of wealthy, dark, influential families. Within the society, there are also levels and depending which level each family is on relates to how deep into the society they a

I have just been down the rabbit hole and I don’t want out! Thrilling, suspenseful and utterly addicting... Requiem of the Soul sucks your own soul in from the first word until the last, and leaves you wanting more!

Ivy and Santiago’s story is passionate, and fiery. The revenge model that these two authors write on encompasses your mind. I need more words now as I sit here, still reeling from the cliffhanger that was presented and I am in limbo. Ugh! So many characters at play and the tension is

I was given an advance readers copy of this book and have decided to write a voluntary. These two authors collaborating together are truly amazing. Requiem of the soul was very dark, dirty. It made me upset want lash out. To be honest I don't like Santiago very much right now. Ivy deserves so much better. Everthing hes done and put her through.

Wowza!!!!! What a brilliant story.

I’m on eggshells at the moment as that ending has reared me speechless. I’m grasping for answers that I need ASAP but honestly what a ride.

From the very first chapters I was hooked. This tale of revenge is not what it seems. Santiago and Ivy are breathtaking. With being polar opposites in their society standing, family and power play a huge part in their demise. Santiago is a Sovereign son that has lost so much in his torturous life. He wants revenge for his f

I love Dark romance. Especially if it is fraught with tension and mystery. This book definitely was that. There is a lot at play in this book. The first big thing that I am trying to understand is this society. There seem to be a lot of players or me who aspire to be a part of it. There is darkness surrounding it. That leads me to Santiago. He is on a mission. Yet, why? I realize parts of it have come out as this book set up the foundation for the next books in the trilogy. It is because of this ...more

The characters are great and interesting but some of the book I found boring and I skimmed a few pages throughout without missing anything, I enjoyed Ivy and Santiago time together but I wish more had occurred throughout the book so we had a better picture of what was going to happen next and I don't just mea
