This was a difficult to finish read for me personal.. This a dark romance, I am going to say the romance part seemed off and forced to work for the book.
The ending wasn't what I predicted or thought would of happened Overall an ok story to pass the time. Mar 09, Lana Glover rated it did not like it. I gave up after about pages. The writing was sloppy, spelling errors throughout and jumped from character to character without any connection. I felt like I was reading something written by a kid. Dumb plot. May 08, Lisa Greer rated it it was ok. I lost interest in it about 75 pages in and quit.
Not worth reading the rest Oct 09, Irene S rated it really liked it.

One can be prideful for different reasons. Author Ichabod Spencer states that "spiritual pride is the worst kind of pride, if not worst snare of the devil. The heart is particularly deceitful on this one thing. In Ancient Athens, hubris was considered one of the greatest crimes and was used to refer to insolent contempt that can cause one to use violence to shame the victim.
This sense of hubris could also characterize rape. The term has been used to analyse and make sense of the actions of contemporary heads of government by Ian Kershaw , Peter Beinart and in a much more physiological manner by David Owen In this context the term has been used to describe how certain leaders, when put to positions of immense power, seem to become irrationally self-confident in their own abilities, increasingly reluctant to listen to the advice of others and progressively more impulsive in their actions.
Dante's definition of pride was "love of self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbour". Pride is generally associated with an absence of humility. In accordance with the Sirach 's author's wording, the heart of a proud man is "like a partridge in its cage acting as a decoy; like a spy he watches for your weaknesses.
He changes good things into evil, he lays his traps. Just as a spark sets coals on fire, the wicked man prepares his snares in order to draw blood.
Beware of the wicked man for he is planning evil. He might dishonor you forever. Benjamin Franklin said "In reality there is, perhaps no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride. Disguise it, struggle with it, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive and will every now and then peep out and show itself; you will see it, perhaps, often in this history.
For even if I could conceive that I had completely overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility. The proverb "pride goeth goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall" from the biblical Book of Proverbs , or pride goeth before the fall is thought to sum up the modern use of pride.
Pride is also referred to as "pride that blinds," as it often causes a committer of pride to act in foolish ways that belie common sense. The first volume, Hubris ,  describes Hitler's early life and rise to political power. The second, Nemesis ,  gives details of Hitler's role in the Second World War , and concludes with his fall and suicide in Much of the 10th and part of 11th chapter of the Book of Sirach discusses and advises about pride, hubris, and who is rationally worthy of honor.
It goes:. Do not store up resentment against your neighbor, no matter what his offence; do nothing in a fit of anger. Pride is odious to both God and man; injustice is abhorrent to both of them Do not reprehend anyone unless you have been first fully informed, consider the case first and thereafter make your reproach. Do not reply before you have listened; do not meddle in the disputes of sinners.
