Vengeance comes with a price. 

Grief stricken Katie Dillinger is on a mission to claim revenge for the death of her lover. In a race against time to find the murderer, Katie reaches out to Riker, a man listed as her boyfriend’s emergency contact. The cold-hearted man comes to Katie’s aid, but she doesn’t completely trust him. To keep her friends safe, she insists they leave town immediately. But her efforts come too late. A friend disappears and a clear message is left in the wake: surrender or more people will die.
Katie’s world is turned upside down when she discovers Riker has vowed to protect her. She’s involved in a prophecy, one which her lover had been preparing her for before his murder. All the combat training he gave her suddenly makes sense, and as Katie fights to keep her friends alive, she’s forced to prioritize. Revenge now, saving mankind next.

Thoughts:


All Katie Dillinger wants is to get revenge for the death of her boyfriend Kyle, who is a vampire…
Kyle always told her that if anything was to happen to him, to get in touch with his friend Riker. Pressed for time Katie reaches out to Riker, even though she doesn’t trust him. They only have a limited time to find who killed Kyle, before the killers leave town. In that time, Katie tries to protect her best friend Julie and Julie’s boyfriend by having them leave town.  But she is too late. The killers left a message for her, come to us or more will die. In a twist, Katie learns she is part of a prophecy, and Riker will protect her at all cost. Kyle somehow knew this though and trained her to fight and defend herself against humans and vampires. Will she get her revenge or die trying? All she knows is vengeance comes with a price.

Immortal Revenge is different from any other vampire book out there right now. The first line in the book captured my attention. “Ravenous flames devoured the headless body pinned to the makeshift cross in the front yard.” I knew right then that I would love the rest of this book. It had it all; heartache, sadness, hatred, with a little bit of humor mixed into one. I was in suspense, during the whole book. You never knew what was going to happen next when you turned the page.

Mary Abshire did a wonderful job writing this book. It flowed from one thing to another great; and kept me turning the paged to find out what would happen next to Katie. I have already read it twice since getting it and will read it again for sure. I truly can’t wait for the second book, to see if Katie is part of the prophecy and what happens to her and Riker.
