Review: Retribution; Sherrilyn Kenyon (giveaway)

Hardcover: 432 pages
Publisher: St. Martin's Press; First Edition edition (August 2, 2011)


Harm no human…

A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.

Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised on one belief—Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. While protecting her adoptive race, she has spent her life eliminating the Dark-Hunters and training for the day when she meeting the man who killed her family: Jess Brady.

A gun in the hand is worth two in the holster…

Jess has been charged with finding and terminating the creature who’s assassinating Dark-Hunters. The last thing he expects to find is a human face behind the killings, but when that face bears a striking resemblance to the one who murdered him centuries ago, he knows something evil is going on. He also knows he’s not the one who killed her parents. But Abigail refuses to believe the truth and is determined to see him dead once and for all.

Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, they must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they’ve sworn to protect.

My Review

 If you have been following Cleverly Inked you may have noticed I LOVE, LOVE Sherrilyn Kenyon. She never ceases to amaze me with the ability to switch between two characters thoughts, It's flawless. I also love that she does her research on the background of her characters, bravo.  

   Abigail is kick-ass and highly dangerous. It also doesn't help her crusade she has been on to avenge her parents death, that the people who adopted her have been lying to her the entire time. I enjoyed that Abigail was cutter perfect she has issues and can royally screw things up.  For once it wasn't just a guy who had issues that needed to be nurtured. Though Jess has his own issues to work through.

 Oh the excitement and adventure that took place, AWESOME! It was easy to follow along and had as always with Kenyon's writing great banter. Yes, Yes, Retribution is another great read of Kenyon's writing.

I have never read anything by Kenyon before, but it seems like I am missing out! I am starting to really get into Urban Fantasy, so this book sounds really good to me. Actually a lot of Kenyon's work sounds like it would delight me. I think I am going to go ahead and enter this giveaway. It sounds like a chance to win a great book!
