Cartel 8: Long Live The Cartel

Cartel 8: Long Live The Cartel Cartel 8: Long Live The Cartel 
by Ashley JaQuavis

SynopsisIn the world of the Cartel, there are many pitfalls and family curses. In the city of Miami, the good die young and the bad live forever. The first family of Miami, The Diamonds, are back and more ruthless than ever. When the family has to deal with the sins of the father, karma comes back and rests on the shoulders of Carter “CJ” Jones II . The life his father never wanted for him, calls him and the allure of family tradition sucks him in so deep, that he falls victim to the game. This story shows the second coming of a king and solidifies the cartel family tree in the roots of the streets forever

Book Review- This edition as expected after book 7 focused on the next generation in Carter Jr & Monroe Jr. After their parents were taken away for one reason or another, they both had to live in uncertain conditions and face hardships that their parents never had to in the youth. Both grew into hardened cold men. While Monroe was deep in the streets trying to rebuild his family's legacy, Carter was on a different path as a professional athlete. However, thanks to a bit of treachery that soon came to an end, and thus the true story begins. 

The story moved well and the characters were developed. I think the material that was provided was relevant to the storyline and to move it forward even though most was not quite interesting.  I'm curious to see how Money Devils ties into this "new" cartel. I look forward to seeing the fallout between the cousins once the depth of Monroe Jr.'s betrayal is revealed. 
As far as the audio production, it was done well and the narrator held his own. You can get your copy by clicking the image below and supporting the author by leaving a review.
