There is death where the wind whispers.
Left for dead by his own father on a snowy sidewalk, Kazimir Markovic finally understands what true betrayal really means, and just how far one will go to keep a secret. He only needs to survive, to make it home alive to his wife, and then everyone else will know what it means, too.
It will all come to an end … Right back where it first started …
New York’s streets are bloodier than ever. No souls are safe in this war. The games are over. From authors Bethany-Kris (Donati Bloodlines Trilogy) and London Miller(Den of Mercenaries) comes the final installment of Kaz and Violet’s journey in the Seasons of Betrayal series.

5 Stars
The final novel in the Seasons of Betrayal series and the conclusion to one of my favorite mafia romances to date. Bethany-Kris and London Miller waste no time in thrusting the reader back into the bloodshed, the deceit, the heavy-weighted threats, the all-encompassing fear, and the strongest love story that Kaz and Violet share as husband and wife. Picking up right where Where the Snow Falls left of we see Kaz struggling to make it out alive and Violet becoming stronger and more resolute in her decision than we had ever seen before. The family battle has grown larger, the hatred between them affecting everyone around them. The lies they must tell and the choices they must make are devastating. 

"-we have to take it one thing at a time, minute by minute." 
Not even day by day, Violet through to herself. No. Minute by minute.

Oh my goodness, I cannot say enough good things about how quickly Bethany-Kris and London Miller are able to pull readers into the story. It was like no time had past since I finished the previous book, because the moment I started reading page one my heart rate sped up and I was worrying my lip wanting to know what could possibly happen next. Kaz has grown ruthless, a darker version of himself, and Violet, my gosh I've grown to love that girl and her backbone. The change in these characters made me enjoy this book even more, because they seemed to finally grow up and recognize that the actions they took to be together could only end in death, their own or others'. Toss in the parents and the siblings, as well as the several other supporting characters, and you have a complex story that weaves around, never quite giving away who would shoot a gun next. Every character was phenomenal in this final novel, the complexities each presented far more present than the previous releases. I couldn't have predicted some of the betrayals and I loved the twists mixed in, because each character is so passionate about what they wanted to see happen.

The relief was sweet.
Like candy melting in her mouth.
Like love in her fucking heart.
Like sun on her face.

Romeo and Juliet have nothing on the love that Kaz and Violet share for one another. Where the Wind Whispers features the war these two have causes by their romance. It was an intense, emotional read, but I couldn't have asked for a better conclusion to this series. Nothing is simple about this book, the sacrifices too large to be comfortable, and with darkness at every turn, I feel like it is one of the most believable organized crime series I have read in a long time and I am sad to see the Russian-Italian couple go. 

A strange pride curled in his chest, warming him for the moment. How much she had changed, he knew. How amazing she could  be, he mused.
