Vas by Ker Dukey & K. Webster Blog Tour

The Volkov name is one I longed for.
Their household is one I grew up in, but not as an equal—as a maid’s son.
This didn’t stop me from becoming a man to be reckoned with.
But even with my rightful name finally given to me, I still feel adrift.
Until her.

Everything I did was for acceptance.
Everything I lost brought me to my family.
To this life.
To her.

I fought for my status.
I fought for my sisters.
And I will fight to the death for my angel.

She has shown me there is light in our pitch-black world.
That the stars can’t shine without the darkness of night.
She is the stars, and I am the sky in which she shines.

There is evil lurking in the shadows we create.
The corruption and depravities of the First Families have become toxic and are infecting us all from within.
Games have been played, and now, they must end.

I am Vas.
Vocal. Voracious. Vindictive. Volkov.
A devil in love with an angel, and together, we’re going to rule Hell on Earth.

***This is book three in The V Games series. Vlad and Ven must be read first in order to understand this story.***

This is the third book in The V Games and it did not disappoint.

Darya is living in a world of pain. It's a world she has become accustomed to, but not the world that she was born in to. While living in a convent, Darya was also exposed to brutal living, but in a different light. While she was so innocent, there were things that were beyond her control – she was too young and innocent to realize what was happening. When she is brought to her new tormentor's home, she just learns to live with the abuse. While her faith is shaken, it's not completely lost.

Vas is a fighter through and through. However, he was raised by a woman who was strong, courageous, and willing to sacrifice to give her son a chance. Despite wanting to seek out his father, Vas is not controlled by his dad, nor his dad's empire. When he first sees Darya, he knows that he has to help her in some way. But Vas isn't about the short plays – he waits and goes for the long play.

While these two are figuring out how to live their own lives, Vas is also prepping another fighter. This is a twisted story about love, betrayal, family, and sacrifice. While I found the story somewhat predictable in terms of the devil, I did like seeing Vas in his new role. He seems the most humane of the characters and I liked watching him.

I can't wait for the next story!

This is the third book in The V Games series and Vas and Darya's story.

Darya grew up in a convent when the Devil Man came and took her away. Now she only knows pain for Yuri, Vlad's father. She isn't allowed to wear clothes and she is beaten when Yuri isn't happy. Her life is not what you would want anyone to go through, but it is where the devil has left her.

Vas is Diana and Irena's half-brother. He is a fighter and he trains fighters and they win in The V Games. He has a big heart and finding Darya it shows and his protectiveness for her comes through even bigger. He will protect her in any way, even with his life.

As with the other books, this one is filled with mafia doings, murders, betrayal, lust, love, and even forever. I would totally recommend reading the first two books just to be able to keep up with all the characters involved.

I have loved this series and I love Vas, but I found this book to be a little less than the first books, it didn't seem to have the gripping page-turner effect for me. And I will be recommending this series to anyone who would listen. I can't wait for the Cousins Zahkar and Rodion and Alyona story, so I hope there is at least one more book. If you haven't read anything from K. Webster and Ker Dukey and you like a great mafia story, then these authors and this story are for you.

The third and final book in The V Games was about Vas, he's the bastard son of the Volkovs (Diana and Irina's family). This is definitely a series that needs to be read in order. Vas has been previously portrayed as a play-boy, he's worked his way into the good graces of his father and is poised to take over everything Diana had worked for.

We learn the true nature of Vas, which is a far cry from what I thought he was. Being raised by his mother, outside of the mafia families, has given him empathy and the capacity love.

Darya's story is just heartbreaking. She's currently a slave for Yuri Vasiliev, paraded through his home naked and subjected to whatever horrors he can think of. Abused and alone, the only thing she has is her faith... which also seems to have abandoned her. That is, until Vas sees her.

These families are absolutely bat-poop crazy. Their main source of entertainment is The V Games, a vicious Hunger Games type event where only the best survive the horrors awaiting them. Each family enters a Champion and then places bets on the winner. These champions can be anyone, regardless of their strengths, and many need much time for training.

To be honest, I was expecting a lot more from this story. I will say that I enjoyed getting to know Vas and Darya, reading about their pasts and who they really were. I enjoyed these two finding one another. What I didn't enjoy was that this story wasn't very exciting. I expected more action, instead this was a low-key romance between Vas and Darya. There was training of a champion, and a lot of interaction with Zahkar and Rodion (these two need their own book), but I was expecting more in regard to avenging Darya. Not to mention Vika, I don't even really know how her arc ended. There are interactions with the families, but I was expecting more resolution from Vas.

Overall, I enjoyed this series and getting to know each of the characters. I liked reading about the inner workings of these powerful families – their insanity knows no bounds! I was entertained with this series but would say book three wasn't my favorite. I was really hoping for more resolutions.

Vas is the third installment in The V Games series. With the amount of information there is, these books should be read in the order the authors intended to completely understand.

Vas is Diana and Irina's half-brother. His mother was a Volkov’s maid. She was the hired help, so Vas wasn't groomed like the rest of the first families’ sons. He's an underground fighter and trained Diana for The V Games. When he first sees Darya, he's drawn to her in a way he doesn't understand. He feels a protectiveness over her. She's naked and hungry, living as the slave to Yuri.

Darya grew up in a convent. It's the only life she's ever known until "The devil man" steals her away and leaves her in her own personal hell. She becomes the slave to Yuri, Vlad's father. She doesn't understand why she's left here or why she’s humiliated by being paraded around naked. When Vas finds her, he'll do anything to protect her.

I loved Vas and Darya's story. So far, I think Vas is definitely the least dark of all of the men. He's lethal, but this story was more about his feelings than the death and destruction this series is known for. I can't wait for the cousin's story. I can't imagine Rodion, Zahkar, and Alyona's story not being as sexy and fast-paced as the rest and I’m dying to see the conclusion of the most recent V Games.

I love this writing duo. My dark heart sings when they get together!

Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
