These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.

Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.

Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Review: Before Vengeance

Before Vengeance Before Vengeance by Louisa Lo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although Before Vengeance is a prequel story in the Vengeance Demons series, it is not necessary to read it prior to book one. I actually read it after reading the first book, and found I enjoyed it a lot this way – it explained quite a few things I was interested in, giving me an insight into one of the characters I wished to know better.

In Vengeance Be Mine, we find out a lot about the supernatural world but focus mainly upon the vengeance demon and trickster elements. With Before Vengeance, we get an insight into another world – the fae, the changelings. Although it’s a very quick read, one you can complete in next to no time at all, this one does give us a real in depth look at the world. We get to see how it functions, we are introduced to some of the big players, and we get answers about Serafina’s past.

Honestly, I was so excited to find out more about the female who intrigued me so much in Vengeance Be Mine. This story of her past really does do her justice – so much so, I came to love her even more than I imagined I would. I really cannot wait to start book two in this series, as I know I’ll be getting even more of the characters I came to love in this short story. It really does help solidify Searfina as a character, pulling us into her story and leaving us wanting more (if the truth is to be told, a part of me loves Serafina more than I loved Megan and is more interested in seeing Serafina’s story play out).

Without a doubt, this wonderful prequel is very much worth the read if you enjoyed the first book in the series.
