About the Book:
A powerful follow up to multiple award-winning debut Bull Mountain. Clayton Burroughs is a small-town Georgia sheriff, a new father, and, improbably, the heir apparent of Bull Mountain’s most notorious criminal family. As he tries to juggle fatherhood, his job and his recovery from being shot in the confrontation that killed his two criminally-inclined brothers last year, he’s doing all he can just to survive. Yet after years of carefully toeing the line between his life in law enforcement and his family, he finally has to make a choice. When a rival organization makes a first foray into Burroughs territory, leaving a trail of bodies and a whiff of fear in its wake, Clayton is pulled back into the life he so desperately wants to leave behind. Revenge is a powerful force, and the vacuum left by his brothers’ deaths has left them all vulnerable. With his wife and child in danger, and the way of life in Bull Mountain under siege for everyone, Clayton will need to find a way to bury the bloody legacy of his past once and for all.

This book was phenomenal and it had so many surprising moments that were action packed and mind blowing . We get multiple point of view's but it was very easy to follow and they were all necessary. The depth of the characters, the theme of community and taking sides was awesome. You really didn't know who to trust and that made the book all the more exciting.

This book had everything, and I loved how it all ended, it was quite shocking. The prose, the authenticity, the unstoppable conflict on every page, rendered it impossible to put down. I am a fan of dark crime stories and Like Lions ticked every single box for an amazing novel. I was swept alongside the rocky history of the Burroughs and held on breathless until the last page. Brian Panowich can write and I will be anxiously waiting for another novel from him (Here's hoping there is a book III). I recommend this book to everyone.

Thank you NetGalley, St. Martin's Press, Minotaur Books and Brian Panowich for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
