Written by: Sonya Weiss
Genre: New Adult Fantasy
Juliet Sawyer was born to save the world. Gifted with incredible powers, she’s the only one standing in the way of The Great Extinction, the prophesied battle between Supernaturals and humans. In order to keep her sister safe and avenge her father’s murder, she’ll have to infiltrate the ranks of the Supernatural leaders who wish to destroy her. But the one thing she didn’t count on was falling in love…with someone who wants her dead.
The gorgeous and dangerous son of one of the Supernatural leaders, Riley West is in charge of training the group for war—now including Juliet, whose father is responsible for killing his family. But the more they train together, the more intensely their passion for each other burns. The deeper Riley is drawn in by Juliet’s beauty, the closer he gets to the secrets she keeps: one that will challenge everything he believes in—and one that could lead to her death. Together, can their forbidden love help stop the war? Or will one of them be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice?
In a world where powers and abilities mean everything, Juliet must join the evil that wants to destroy her. Revenge is her goal, but she finds herself drawn to Riley…the son of one of the evillest men in leadership.
The premise was amazing, it is exactly what I look for in a great read. There were super-naturals, “Romeo and Juliet” forbidden romance, and even an alien element.
I liked the story but I didn’t find it overly engaging. I really wanted it to pull out a home run and I was invested enough to want that. In the end, I give Revenge 3.5 stars.
I received this ARC copy of Revenge from Kensington Books - Lyrical Press in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication December 22, 2015.
