Synopsis: Things aren’t always as they seem. In fact, in a world of secrets and lies almost nothing ever is, but Kaleigh made her choices and now she has to live with the consequences.
Haunted by her guilt, Kaleigh is forced to question everything she thought she knew. From friends and foes, to loyalty and love, she’s quickly losing faith in herself and those around her.
Everyone she cares about has been hurtled to the front lines, but can Kaleigh find the strength within herself to keep fighting? Or, surrounded by loss, deceit, and betrayal, will her fiery spirit finally be extinguished?
The ending to Dissidence was unreal and it left me crying out for this book! I actually had to go back and re-read it before I read this book so that I could get a feel for it again! I have to be honest and say that I didn't really enjoy this book as much as the first book, but it was still amazing! There was nothing wrong with this book at all! It was amazingly written and was a fantastic follow on to Dissidence, but I felt like there was something missing from it for me to love it as much as the first book! The plot of this book had developed on so much from Dissidence and I found it a whirlwind! It just had situation after situation and I started to feel so sorry for the characters! There was plenty of action in this book and loads of twists and turns to keep me entertained though! I thought that the plot was amazing with all the action in it and it really got me thinking about what was going to happen next! The characters were again amazing just like they were in the first book! Kaleigh was so different to what she was in the first book! I thought that she had grown so much and I wasn't sure if I really liked how much she grew! I felt like I didn't really connect with her as much as what I did in Dissidence! I started to connect with her at the beginning and at the end, but not as much in the middle! She was so brave though and she really kicked ass! Conner was so hot! I loved him in the first book and I loved him even more in this book! He was so protective of Kaleigh again and I could see that he really loved her! Remember the love triangle from the first book? Well, I can't talk about it for this book as it will reveal a massive spoiler and will ruin a bit of the book for you! I'm not sure if there's going to be another book to this series as Vengeance ended perfectly in my opinion! Everything was resolved, but to be honest I love this series so I wouldn't mind another book! I read this book when it didn't have a cover and I didn't really have a cover in my head, but I can say that the cover suits the book so much! It also really suits the cover for the first book in the series! Big thank you to Jamie for an ARC of Vengeance and for having me on the Blog Tour!
