Avenge is the second book in The Patronus series and Sarah Ross brings it even more than she did the first time around. We have many familiar faces along with some new friends to tag along our group; my personal new favorite being the sassy Lola.
“Six months ago, Lucy Donovan thought that being killed by a drunk driver was the worst thing that could happen to her.
She was wrong.
Now, the person she loves most has been ripped away from her, soul held hostage, and Lucy has vowed to stop at nothing to get it back.
Part of a new team with enhanced powers, Lucy and her friends begin a quest to avenge the souls that have been stolen. Enemies of the Patronus have united, however, and a spy from within the Patronus realm is feeding the enemy their every move.
When a mission goes horribly wrong, Lucy’s soul becomes compromised. It will take a strength she didn’t know was within her to escape the darkness, return to the light and avenge the soul she loves.”
I loved the imagery Sarah brought. Going back and forth from their quarters to New Orleans (which I may be slightly biased because it is one of my favorite places in the world!), she did such a wonderful job of capturing the smells, the voices and landscape that just for a moment I could close my eyes and be right back there. From Bourbon Street to Café Du Monde, I loved it.
My rating for this book:
There were so many twists and turns in this book that I was really put on my toes. From the first time we see Jessica, to everything that happens when Lucy’s soul is compromised, to the mole hiding out stealthily, I was impressed and finished this book in record time.
So can Lucy get everything she’s lost back, including herself? Better start reading to find out!
