Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.
Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.
He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.
But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.
Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.

Hands down, Riot is my favorite book in the Scarred Souls series. I can even point out the exact reason. 901 and 152 have both been under Master’s control (his very special drug cocktail) for so long that they don’t even know their own names. They don’t remember what outside is like. They are simply going through the motions of a slave life like good little obedient properties. Deep down they know something isn’t right with their lives. Their subconscious thoughts tell them there is more. It’s that moment when they start questioning and wanting more. They become aware to the fact that there is more and they want it. I loved every single second of it!
Inessa/152 was introduced in Ravage. She’s Valentin’s baby sister and the sick people that tried to make him a monster have turned her into a sex slave. Valentin’s punishment for disobeying his Mistress was his sister being sent to Georgia and to the Master that is obsessed with her. Once in Master’s possession he puts her on a different drug cocktail. This new cocktail makes her very obedient and needy of the Master’s touch. It also keeps her memory blurred.
The Blood Pits ruling Master is a very greedy power hungry sadistic psycho. He has a love hate relationship with 901. 901 is the Blood Pit’s champion fighter. He is undefeated. 901 doesn’t play in the sport of blood. He enters the pit, makes his kills as quickly and efficiently as possible, and quickly returns to his cell. Master desperately wants to find 901’s weakness so that he can exploit it. Master wants 901 to play in the blood sport. He needs 901 to make a show out of his kills. Master sees that 152 is the perfect tool to getting a weakness to exploit out of 901.
Tillie Cole treats her readers to one hell of a climatic ending to this series. She brings all her tortured scarred souls back in this installment. The hero’s of the previous books get the ultimate revenge when they cash in on the pound of flesh that is due to them for the hell that they’ve been through.
