The Untouchables is the second book in the Ruthless People Series which must be read in order. A united Melody and Liam are a force to be reckoned with. They are unstoppable, never flinching at ruling with a ruthless force, instilling fear in the people they dealt with. The Callahan rules and expectations were absolute, ignoring or flaunting them could be fatal. Liam and Melody had no hesitation in ensuring noncompliance to the rules would be met with ruthless resolutions.
The mayhem inflicted upon obstacles the Callahan family encountered was mind blowing. Their displays of indifference and callousness in eliminating problems/people became hauntingly astounding. What was more unsettling was my acceptance to the way they lived their life at the expense of others.
Melody and Liam are two anti-heroes who I have a growing compassion for which continues to astonish me. If you had to pick where they hail from, it would be hades rather than heaven. Amazingly, the further the story goes, the more their journey becomes a destiny of survival rather than an ambitious climb to power. Neither chose to hold the roles they have been given in their families, but they don’t cower from the responsibilities their roles demand.
So given I concede they have no option to survive, therein lies my hope of a sliver of light in their dark tale. The added complications of the legacy of Melody’s family have added a twist to the plot creating a whirlwind of suspense.
Just who are out of reach and untouchable is questionable. Instability, doubt and questionable loyalty among the families surfaced which left me desperate to start the next book in the series. The suspense was taken to a new level with the revelation of multiple characters yielding the power to manipulate others and I have no idea how they are going to reunite the remnants considering what transpired in this book!
