Dark, cunning and beautiful, Mestlven will win your heart or devour your mind.

 Mestlven: A Tale from Perilisc by Jesse Teller

Mestlven: A Tale from PeriliscReady to lurk on the dark, vile and vengeful side of life? Meredith Mestlven had no idea what kind of a nightmare her life would become until her husband, betrayed and brutalized her physically, mentally and emotionally. Perhaps revenge IS a dish best served cold, because after fleeing for her life, poor Meredith’s mind shattered. Now, twenty years later Sob has returned, warped, wicked and consumed with seeking the perfect recipes for revenge on all who wronged her. Her time is now, she is setting the monster free. She is totally chill, hardened and more than ready to make the world pay for the destruction of Meredith.

With young Emily as her protégé, she will shed blood, gore, humiliation and her own brand of paybacks throughout the town that is already well-versed in the obscene and cruel. Meet three characters that will make unlikely allies, a priestess, a wizard and a teenage boy who leads a massive crime ring with an iron fist. Will Sob find the peace she seeks? Will a piece of her seek justice for all who still suffer the debasement she felt? No one knows what goes on in the mind of a madwoman.

MESTLVEN by Jesse Teller is NOT for the delicate of constitution. Prepare to enter a brittle and bloody world where evil reign’s supreme and no details are left unexposed as the butchery and mutilation, not to mention the torturous deaths are front and center. What would it take for YOU to leave your humanity behind to exact revenge? How far would YOU go to feel vindicated? Could you be as thorough as Sob? Would you risk your soul to avenge the person you once were? It takes a talented author to turn a crazed monster into a sympathetic being and I felt Sob's pain and understood her actions.

I received this copy from Jesse Teller in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
