Review of Blood Vengeance:
This book was the best, most exciting, disturbing and enjoyable book in the series. I knew at the end of the previous book that the next book (Blood Vengeance) was going to be exciting but after reading it, my expectations were nothing compared to what actually happened.
A lot of books I have read (and liked) were really fun roller coaster rides but this was a ride I don’t know how to describe. It was almost non-stop action/destruction/mayhem (pick your own words for all hell breaking loose). At times it was disturbing but I couldn’t put the book down (actually the kindle).
I couldn’t wait to see what kind of chaos was around the corner. At the end of the book I took a break from reading for a few days just to catch my breath! This was an awesome book!
I don’t like to say much about the story but for those of you who have read the series and know the back story of Matt Drake’s pain, pay close attention to some of the details in this book. You may have an AHA moment!
