The Black Wolf (In the Company of Killers #5) J.A. Redmerski [Review]

Since devastating secrets were uncovered by Nora Kessler, Niklas Fleischer and Victor Faust have been divided as business partners and brothers. But ultimately Niklas is persuaded to lead a mission to Italy, and he sees it as an opportunity to set in motion forgiveness—or retribution—for his brother’s betrayal.

The mission: play the role of a wealthy German investor and kidnap a beautiful, notorious madam named Francesca Moretti. No stranger to these types of roles, Niklas is the best man for the job, but this time the risks will be much greater as he will not be doing it alone. Izabel Seyfried, still fresh out of a life of imprisonment and sex slavery, could be negatively affected by the things she will see in Moretti’s mansion, and Niklas must keep her in line so she does not blow their cover and get them killed.

But Niklas isn’t the only one who must play a role—Nora takes on the humiliating task of playing Niklas’s slave, and Izabel must play the role of his lover.
On one hand, Niklas couldn’t be enjoying himself more. On the other hand, the emotions that continue to rage inside of him may be too much for him to control, and it may be Niklas—not Izabel—who needs to be kept in line. He cannot forget what Victor has done, and this mission may just be the beginning of his downward spiral.
Can the blood bond that Niklas and Victor share as brothers be stronger than resentment? Or will vengeance dig the blade so deep that their bond be eternally severed?

 5 Incredible – Could-not-put-it-down STARS!!!!
The Black Wolf is the fifth book In the Company of Killer series. I love this series. I love every single novel in this series. I love how each book is its own beast and I love that each one focuses on a new person, yet the entire group is featured.

This is Niklas story and I was DYING for this one.

I actually waited awhile before I started The Black Wolf, I just knew in my heart this one would give me a book hangover and I’m still reeling over it! Let’s just say it took me a few days to write this review because I just adore and love this book so much.

We know from Seeds of Iniquity that Victor killed Niklas’ beloved. It came to a complete surprise and I still love Victor, flaws and all. Because of this betrayal Niklas is forging his own path.  Also, Nora is part of the group now. Oh the dynamics!

A lot of questions come to my mind. How is Nora going to fit in? Will Nora be a threat to Izabel? Will Victor forgive Niklas? What will Victor do?

Victor has a new contract, he needs two slaves and an owner to go into the field and adduct a Madame.  I was really interested in the plot of the book as you can imagine. Victor needs two slaves and of course Nora and Izabel are brought on the mission, but how will Izabel act? She is a reformed slave. Will she have a break down?

I thought Victor would be the “owner”, but he needs Niklas to do it. Victor says he needs Niklas because Niklas is the only one that can complete the mission flawlessly, but we can kind of guess that there is much more to it.

The best part of the book and why I love the author so much is that there is so much more than what is. There’s a motive to every move and you will continue guessing until the very end.

Izabel is treated as Niklas’ girlfriend and Nora is treated as Niklas’ slave. They are to never break character unless they are alone. There is crazy tension all around! Niklas cares for Izabel and he would do anything to protect her and you will see it. Nora is a different breed and she finds Niklas attractive. She wants his body and I love how different Izabel and Nora are.

When the three go into the mission, there’s so much drama, suspense and questions! I love it. I can’t go on to how much I love this book. I love how all the players are woven together. I love reading every POV, I love Victor’s love for Izabel and I love reading Niklas inner turmoil.

And do not even get me started on the end. The author doesn’t leave you hanging, but there will be a lot of questions going through your mind. The MAIN question is what is Victor’s motive and plan? I can’t wait for the next book!
