Review: Vengeance



If you think cheating is the worst thing anyone can do in a relationship, think again!

Delaney's near death experience in Fracture left her able to feel the dying. Sadly, her instincts told her to kept hush about her boyfriend Derek's dad's heart condition until he passed away. Derek didn't get to say goodbye. He spent the last days of his Dad's life arguing with him about Delaney. But now that she is danger again, can Derek forgive and save her once more?

Derek's point-of-view narrates the story this time. But due to his grieving and frustration over Delaney's gesture, being inside his head isn't much entertaining and forces the action to pause for way too long. There are hints of a threat here and there but not enough to keep the climax growing. Maya, the new girlfriend of Derek's friend is introduced, hinting at a love triangle which quickly falls apart. In fact, no one in the group feel like they want to be together.

The only thing that makes much sense in all the chaos is the ending.

  1. Sorry this book didn't work for you. Sounds like there were quite a few issues with it - but I'm glad you at least enjoyed the ending!

  2. With that cover, I'd expect something more focused on the threats and danger. It reminds me a bit of one of the lasts books I read. Way too long pauses and only hints of a threat every once in a while, but with a good ending.
