REVIEW – SICK FUX by Tillie Cole


When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.
Tick Tock.

Her bottom lip trembled, fucking eviscerating my heart and draining the blackness from my soul. Light. She had always been the only light that ever got in.




SICK FUX is unlike anything I’ve ever read by the talented Tillie Cole. It’s a twisted and sinister version of the popular children’s fairytale, ”Alice In Wonderland”. The subject matter is dark and the Hero and Heroine are borderline psychotic but I found that it worked for them and the chemistry between them was mesmerizing. What I loved about this couple was that they still held a childlike innocence deep within them and though they each had a powerful bloodlust and left a trail of bodies behind them, believe me, each and every one of their victims deserved their gruesome demise.

Heathen James and Ellis Earnshaw meet when they are just wee children. They are like night and day. Heathen is a quiet and aloof little boy, while Ellis is carefree, vivacious, and full of love and light. From the moment the two meet, they are instantly drawn to each other and become the best of friends. While Heathen seems to have a disturbing fascination with dead things and is averse to being touched, Ellis is obsessed with the fairytale ”Alice in Wonderland” and dresses up like her favorite character every day. She pulls Heathen into her make-believe world filled with tea parties, dancing, and rabbit holes. Heathen and Ellis become “Dolly” and “Rabbit” while being cocooned in their warm and safe fairy tale like existence.




Their beautiful connection turns into the most unimaginable nightmare just a couple of years later when their innocence is forever tainted by the vilest people. Heathen tried to protect his beautiful and innocent Ellis from the ugliness of the world that he was forced to endure at the tender age of twelve. But one night changes their lives forever. Heathen and Ellis are torn apart, both sent to their own personal hells. Heathen ends up in a prison filled with the criminally insane. He will be cellmates with two of the most feared prisoners of all which will turn out to be a blessing. These two men take on the role of big brothers and will help Heathen grow into the powerful man who will come to rescue his sweet Dolly.

Years later when they are in their early twenties, Heathen and Ellis are reunited. He knew what Ellis would have endured all those years that they were apart and so he knew when he found her, she would not be the same sweet and carefree girl who captivated his heart from the moment they met. He was armed with the knowledge and arsenal he would need to pull his Dolly out of the darkness and have her dancing in the light once more. He creates an “Alice in Wonderland” fantasy world and has Dolly escaping through the rabbit hole to emerge from her dark prison created by her frail mind.



Rabbit and Dolly are together once again and feel almost whole, but to heal completely from the atrocities inflicted upon them in the past, certain villains must be dealt with. Each will suffer by the hands of the murderous couple labeled the Sick Fux but in reality, those that they slaughter deserved to own that title.

I found that my heart hurt for Heathen and Ellis. Two innocents who were tormented and forced to endure nightmarish lives. I think that readers will not blame them for their actions or view them as sadistic killers either. While the story is extremely violent and quite steamy, I appreciated that certain delicate subject matter is not described in extreme detail.

Here are my overall ratings on the book:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Gore: 5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

SICK FUX is currently available! Be sure to one-click. Rabbit and Dolly are another unforgettable couple created by the brilliant mind of Tillie Cole.
