REVIEW - A Bloody Kingdom (Ruthless People #4) by J.J. McAvoy


It has been eight years since the Callahans defeated Avian Doers and conquered Chicago. Melody is now the Governor and public face of the family, while Liam rises as the Ceann na Conairte of both the Irish and Italians.

Their reach is limitless; their power endless...but is it possible to have too much power? Can Liam and Melody raise a family, a city, and an empire?

Only a fool would try to stop them now....

"Never get comfortable because I will only know peace the day I die."

Ruthless people... A very appropriate title for this series. We again get to see how ruthless Melody and Liam are. I am almost forgot how ruthless, but A Bloody Kingdom was a great reminder. 

Melody is governor and pretty much rules Chicago. She is one of my all time favorite female characters. She is one of the strongest and most ruthless character I have ever read about. She has no mercy for anyone. She would kill her own family if that was what needed to be done to protect the rest of the family. Liam is as strong as her and they make such a perfect royal couple. They have their differences which results into fights and blood being spilled. But they have that unique kind of love. 

The family is never safe, there are always people out there trying to take them down. Melody and Liam are not always as prepared but know how to come back from being shot or stabbed. We also focus a bit on the children: Ethan, Wyatt and Dona. All three have very different characters but they all are very protective of each other. Melody doesn't like treating her kids as babies, and starts training them. A couple of those training scenes broke my heart but I understood why it needed to be done. They would always be targets of their enemies and it's better to teach them how to fight back.

A lot happens in this book and some were very heartbreaking. It was definitely an emotional roller coaster I was on. I didn't know what to expect and after reading a couple of reviews I was afraid of the ending. I am not going to say anything about the ending because it makes me sad and happy at the same time. I know that sounds weird but you'll understand why I say that after you read this book. I was having difficulties with the ending but I think for this series it was perfect. I don't think anything else would've come across as real.

I loved all the different POVs, normally I can't stand that many but they were short and I love all the side characters so they POV's were important to this book. I adore all of them and I just hate saying goodbye to them, I am going to miss them all. JJ McAvoy did such an incredible job with this book! I am really happy she decided to write this book to conclude the series. I can't wait what she comes up with next. She is definitely one of my favorite authors.


I’m a twenty-year-old something born in Montreal, Canada but currently living in Virginia for school. I would tell you want my major is however after two years I still have no idea what I’m doing.

So I’m a writer (duh that’s how you found me), movie enthusiast, and self-proclaimed chef. I love music even though I can’t sing or dance to save my life. (That doesn’t necessarily stop me but you’ve been warned.)

I started Ruthless People the summer of 2013 in hopes of giving myself a new type of love and crime drama. I never knew so many people thought like me! I feel truly blessed to have fans like you all! Writing is my true love and having you all enjoy my words is a dream come true.
