Deadly is Chilling Evocative and Compelling.
Ever since I started to read the Empathy series I have always found a soft spot for Ryan, sure he’s a psychopath who thinks he’s impassive, except when it comes to Cereus, but he’s intriguing and the main reason I couldn’t wait to read this novella.
Deadly continues the story of how Ryan has taken Cereus under his wing to help teach her how to deal with her darkness, through actions or wise words such as one of my favorite quotes in the novella “There is no room for guilt here Cereus it’s a weakness. You need to own your demon, don’t let it own you”. Love those Ryan-isms!! Deadly also gives us more of our favorite brother Blake and his wife Melody, we also get to learn just how twisted and demented Cereus is.
Deadly is just as phenomenal as all the books in this amazing series. I couldn’t put it down until I was completely done because I had to know what was going to happen in the story, but then I was so upset that it ended and just wanted more. I always want more when it comes to Ker Dukey’s books.
Deadly (an Empathy novella) is a dark read, a psychological thriller with a touch of taboo that you just can’t help but love the story!

HASH(0xa6e94180) out of 5 stars Still rooting for Cereus and Ryan Aug. 26 2015
By Amanda - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love this story and these characters but this one was not my cup of tea. I've loved the others in the past and the multi point of view has never bothered me. The way this was written in all sorts of points of view and timeframes was confusing.

The story was also kind of boring despite all of the blood, murder, and sadism. I'm sure there will be another after this ending unless Ker just wants to break my heart.

There must be something wrong with me but I can't help but root for Cereus and Ryan to be together and have their own twisted happily ever after. I wish Melody would fall off a cliff. Hint hint.

HASH(0xa6e943cc) out of 5 stars Love is love.... Aug. 31 2015
By Klaire's Kollection - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Gifted for an honest review – 4 stars
I found this one different. Perhaps in the way it was written I’m not sure. It had a “messier” feel to it, like perhaps that was how Cereus was seeing things. I’m not sure how to describe it. But I have to say, how many times can Ryan be resurrected?
“I was always just one soul pleading for another and now I’m alone again, lost.”
I thought this one was quite sad actually. It continues on, a few years into Ryan and Cereus’ existence together. It seems like they have a relatively easy ride of things until they bring another into their fold. Someone who hasn’t been like the ones they’ve had before. This ultimately destroys them. I can’t help but think of a modern day more brutal Bonnie and Clyde when I was reading this, I know the similarities are few and far between yet that’s what I thought. A bloodier version of course.
“We are completely isolated in darkness. Even our shadows leave us….”
That line above – gave me proper goose bumps at the end. So we are left with a bit of a cliff-hanger here, Ryan will not be satisfied until he is by Cereus’ side even if that means going back to the very place that imprisoned him for all those years. It is what he sacrifices for his love, a love he didn’t think he could have. I guess we’ll have to wait and see…..

HASH(0xa6e9460c) out of 5 stars A journey into darkness Nov. 30 2015
By Twisted Book Curmudgeon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Empathy series by Ker Dukey is definitely not for the faint of heart, yet it will bring out all the dark feels, and have you thinking to yourself, “What the hell is wrong with me and why do I like it?” She’s a master of mind-blowing stories, and always has me dumbfounded at the end.

This is a continuation of Ryan and Cereus’s story, it’s 3 yrs down the road, and the chaos and blood hasn’t slowed down. Ryan is teaching Cereus to embrace her inner darkness, but there have been some hiccups along the way. Cereus has been blacking out; not knowing what’s real or just in her crazy mind, and it’s causing both her and Ryan to get into some rather sticky situations…literally!

The journey they take together is absolute darkness, madness of the mind, yet on the same level, it frees them to be who they truly are. No one will ever come close to having the connection they have, and it’s crazy yet inspiring at the same time. I felt I was left hanging at the end, but that’s the way Ker likes it, always dragging you back for more and it’s working like a charm!

HASH(0xa6e94888) out of 5 stars Another glimpse into the sick world of Ryan and Cereus Aug. 24 2015

They feed off each other. Ryan attempts to teach Cereus how to control her killing. Unfortunately, he fails and now it brings him full circle, back to Blue Water.
Blake and Melody believe she will be safe there and get the help she needs. Ryan just wants what is his...Cereus.

Ok, Ryan, how I love you. My love for this series was proportional to how awesome Ryan was in the book. So, like a 10 for Empathy, an 8 for Desolate (because he disappointed me in that book), then it shot back up to an 11 for Vacant, and oh how I loved him in this, a 15 (on a 10-point scale obvi). And right along with my love with Ryan, goes my love for him with Cereus. They are goals, like, OTP right there. I wanted it so badly in Desolate and then it sort of came to fruition in Vacant and then in this one, the ultimate tease!!! Whatever, I loved it anyway.

So, down to what's actually going on in this book. We're back with Cereus and Ryan jet setting around the world with their many identities and we learn Cereus is still having problems merging her psyche; accepting her true identity. Ryan is doing his best to help her along in an effort to preserve their life together but he can only help so much. Cereus gets a friend in this book and this just proves to be an added complication of Ryan and Cereus' dynamic. Georgie, the new friend, doesn't fit well with Ryan and Cereus, she's a pawn in the power struggle between the two and she ends up creating immeasurable friction between the two.

Ryan's in a unique position in this book, for the first time he wants to consider someone else's feelings and wants into his plans. He wants to help Cereus and be in her presence despite the obstacles her mental health may pose. He's confident that because they are so alike he's the only person who can lead her into this new life they're trying to build.

This novella was really good, the timeline switched between past and present and we had several POVs so it requires a bit more attention to ensure you don't get lost in the story. The ending for this one was a little devastating. I was not expecting the way it ended. And then Ker Dukey further twisted the knife when I read the acknowledgements and learned we'd get no more Ryan and Cereus. That was it. I am now tasked with finding some measure of comfort in the
