Vengeance Born is a spectacular fantasy series that I could not stop reading!!To check out the review on their website, full review please click this link.
Annika is part human and part demon or Na’Reish. Raised in the brutal Na’Reish world, she is only kept alive because she is the daughter of the current Na’Reish leader who hopes to use her as a tool of vengeance. Annika is reviled and constantly in danger- mocked for her weak human blood. When a human, Light Blade warrior is captured, she heals him in the dungeon and makes him a bold bargain. She will help him escape if he will help her leave to find a chance at a real life. She hopes to find acceptance in the world of human. Although the Light Blade name Kalan does not trust Annika, he realizes he needs her help. So they embark on a journey that will test each person’s trust and a growing but tentative love and respect that will bring many changes to a world filled with prejudices.
This is fantastic story anyone for anyone who loves a good fantasy yarn with some solid romance. I can’t wait for the next book to come out. The world building in this world feels very authentic and genuine, and many readers will easily relate to the prejudices that Kalan and especially Annika must deal with. Both are very noble characters with great integrity and good intentions who form an unlikely and touching relationship. The journey together challenges Kalan and Annika, and I loved how they grew to slowly admire and care for each other. There are also some surprises and touches of deep humanity which readers will find themselves quickly caught up in the story.
This is a riveting read with genuine and worthy characters that find unlikely love, challenge prejudices and strive to save humanity.
