Series:The Vengeance of Luther #1
My Rating: ★★★⋆
I once again find myself down the KU rabbit hole and I stumbled upon this book. I don’t even know why I decided to read it because I don’t even remember reading the blurb. I don’t know what the fuck I just read but I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! Now, listen. If you’re one of those people that tend to read over or ignore trigger warnings by authors on their books, or tend to not even bother reading them, THIS IS NOT THE BOOK TO DO THAT SHIT WITH. Seriously! HEAD THAT WARNING because if books are dark, this shit is pitch black. I’m talking about the early hours of the morning kind of dark. Dark that is darker than black. Seriously. You’ve been warned.
When Luther sets out to avenge the injustice that befell his sister. He takes seven years to plan the most perfect revenge scheme known to man. With psychotic tendencies as a child, he managed to suppress them until he lets loose to do right by his sister. 10 people owe him revenge and he intends to make sure his sister gets the justice the court system has denied her.
Sevyn is your typical trust fund baby. Rich as sin, beautiful but lonely, unloved, manipulative and with sociopathic tendencies. Raised by people who show her very little love, when Luther showed her some affection, she clung to him like glue after she befriended his sister.
When a misunderstanding lead to the start of a series of unfortunate decision that led to rape and death, no one could have anticipated the clusterfuck that they have unleased and the whatthefuckery that is only the beginning for everybody involved.
I really enjoyed this story. The characters were nothing like I expected. Luther didn’t seem as crazy as he was to begin with. He reminded me of Dexter the TV show. Able to function in normal society, but lethal in the shadows of the night. And their parents. These kids’ parents were crazy. From Luther mom all but asking her son to let loose of his lunacy, the Ryan’s father and godfather. To Jamie’s parents using their daughter to get richer.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to know the supporting characters well at all. I thought they could have been better developed. The story revolved around Luther’s revenge but the resources with which he was able to cover his tracks, The Brotherhood etc, was not well developed either. I thought that could have done with some fleshing out. Considering both Sevyn and Luther’s friends played an important role in the story, I felt that they should have been a bigger part in the narrative. It also would have been nice to have spent time with them in their childhood, to get a better understanding as to why Luther was how he was, the build up to being the man he was now, and Sevyn’s upbringing rather than them merely mentioned. It just wasn’t enough to get us really acquainted with them. Nonetheless, I cannot wait to start the next book because this is supposed to be a romance novel. But after the shit that happened between these two, I just don’t see how they come back from this. I mean now that he knows the truth, how could he possibly proceed with the current plan? But if he doesn’t, he’s well and truly fucked.
