The Last Hope, Book Four of The Killing Game Series by The Black Rose, takes the reader into the dark world of megalomaniacs intent on controlling the world. Their goal is a new world power inhabited by Aryan-type humans. Echoes of the Nazi regime are real, not imagined, as you pursue the reasons behind the disappearance of Allina, what is to happen to her, and why being married to high-ranking special agent Ives Andrich is the reason. After being rescued, presumably by FBI agents, from what could have been a watery grave, Allina finds herself held captive in luxurious but unknown surroundings. Why she is there, and who is responsible for her capture leads you into a frightening world of men wanting nothing less than world domination. A new world order. Allina is desperate for news of her beloved husband. Is he dead? Who are these people? None of her questions are being answered in a way that makes sense.

If you like an intense, superb and thrilling read, then choose this book. Allina’s position is precarious, and depending on who she trusts, it can be downright dangerous. I found it to be a particularly frightening scenario. One that is repeatedly exercised in our world, where ruthless mini-dictators attempt to overthrow all that is good. The characters are eerily reminiscent of some present day persons. My skin crawled as their intentions became more obvious, and I found myself willing Allina to not lose strength. The story is beautifully presented and developed, with great attention to detail. I came to the last page much too soon. Recommended.

The Last Hope by The Black Rose is Book 4 of The Killing Game Series. Sometimes the only hope left is God. Allina, the wife of Ives Andrich, FBI special agent, wakes up at a very secluded mountain estate, with her husband nowhere in sight. She doesn’t know where she is and she doesn’t know how she got there, but she listens and she learns about the people who are around her. She comes to the realization that things are much worse than she could ever have imagined – her captors are a secret German organization, one she had already been warned about. They tell her that her husband is missing and is presumed dead, but she denies it. After one failed attempt at escape, it is only her thoughts of her husband and the love they have for each other that keep her going. Things are about to change, though, and not in a way she could ever have predicted.

The Last Hope (Book 4 of The Killing Game Series) by The Black Rose was an amazing read and it makes me wish I had read the first 3 books in the series. The story gripped me right from the word go and had me on the edge of my seat. Full of suspense, mystery and true undying love, this is one story that wouldn’t let go. The plot is ingenious and the character development was excellent; in no way did I ever feel that I was missing too much from not having read the rest of the series. That said, I would urge anyone who picks this up to read it in sequence to make sure they have the full story – I certainly will be reading the others now. Great story, I'm looking forward to more.
