Author Kylie Griffin immerses the reader in a new world where the Na'Reish terrify humans and the Light Blade warriors fight for humanity. Annika, a half-blood, is a bit of a conundrum. Annika was created out of revenge and reviled by her Na'Reish father. Her whole existence is horrible, her character is admirable. Annika is easy to connect to and like from the first few chapters. When Kalan, a Light Blade warrior, is taken prisoner by the Na' Reish, Annika must make a quick decision. She badly wants to get away from her demon father, but she doesn't know if she can trust this Light Blade.A great start to 2012!
VENGEANCE BORN has every quality of a great novel, from romance to mystery to action. Annika's character is very dynamic, the reader gets to know her as a scared young girl who gradually grows into a mature young woman. Kalan is the typical white knight. The developing romance between the two is realistic, not instantaneous. The romance scenes are steamy and make for an even more exciting read as the reader waits to see what happens when a Light Blade loves the enemy.
The idea behind VENGEANCE BORN is unique and fun. The mystery will have you reading late into the night. The action will have you cheering on the heroes and the romance will have the windows steaming up around the house. The reader will look forward to more from Griffin.
