This book slayed me!
I thought I loved books 1 & 2 in the brilliant quartet, but they do not compare to Revenge!

Just like my reviews for books 1 & 2, I’m starting this review the exact same: this book is NOT a standalone. You HAVE to read the first two books in order to understand the entire story line.

Edward and Celia. Goodness…where do I even begin at this point? The trouble with reviewing this book is that everything I can potentially say would be a spoiler, especially since this book is right in the heart of the over-all story. If I tell you what’s happened up until this point, that’s a spoiler. If I tell you where this book ends, and what I predict could happen next, that’s a spoiler. See the dilemma?

But, I think it’s safe for me to express my feelings towards the characters.
For those who have met Celia in The Fixed Trilogy, her likeability factor was an all-time low. Like zero, on a scale of 100. Well, maybe more like -50. But from that low point up until now, my understanding for what she’s endured and sacrificed in her life has only grown more compassionate, where I grieved right along with her as the story progressed. I like her now. I never thought in a million years I would ever say that, but I do. I really like Celia now.
And Edward…..gah, my views on him went up and down right along with Celia’s. I wanted to initially like him. But then I wanted to hate him (i.e. book 2), but then I fell for him like most everyone who has read this book. He’s the one who’s supposed to slay the dragon….but, after reading Revenge, we begin to wonder who the real dragon is. And my lips are sealed.

Like book 1, this book also ends on a cliffhanger. But it completely sets up for what’s next to come in the final Slay novel. Each book in this quartet has definitely lived up to its name, so I’m beyond excited to find out what Rising will bring us!

5 Stars!
