This story follows our main character Frances who witnesses a shooting attack on the Persephone, the luxury yacht, but survives only to have to deal with the death of her family and her best friend Libby. Two other survivors, the Senator and his son Grey, are the only ones who have survived with Frances. They tell the media that there was a huge wave that destroyed the ship and killed everyone, trying to hide the fact that there was a violent shoot out and everyone was shot to death. Frances is enraged and knows they're trying to hide something. Libby's father, upset with the death of his wife and daughter, wants to get revenge on the Senator as well and tells Frances to take the place of his daughter to keep her safe so she can get the revenge they both deserve. We get front seats to Frances' revenge plot and how she plans on taking down every last person who aided in the covering up of the attack of her family and friends.
"It's funny, most people think that revenge is a passionate affair, driven by rage and pain. But it can't be. Feelings such as those make you weak. They overwrite thought and cause reckless impulses that lead to poor decisions.If anything, revenge is the absence of emotion."
God, I don't know how long its been since a great revenge thriller came out, do you? I absolutely adore when the narrator of the book takes us inside the plot and how he/she will attain their revenge. It's so brilliant! I definitely need to read more revenge novels now.
Frances, our main protagonist, was like a profession revenge plotter. She was so devious, I just loved it! All throughout the book she played the innocent girl Libby that needed help from her traumatic experience, while on the inside she was slowly stalking her prey, waiting to pounce. This innocent cover up was like the cherry on top of the ice cream because it definitely persuaded Grey that she was just that, innocent and that he should comfort her. WE GOT A BAD GIRL OVER HERE! #badgirl #livinglifeontheedge
Exactly, no one had any idea what she was capable of with her facade on.
The characters are not bland or boring. Carrie Ryan perfectly envisions her characters to have a certain role in the revenge plot so they're not there for no reason. Also when you guys do read this book, it's just satisfying to understand why each character was involved and how they were involved. You never know: for example the damsel in distress could may as well be the killer after all. *wink wink*
Remember that quote you always hear, "Love always triumphs in the end." I think that saying is perfectly embodied by this statement!
|The TV show was cancelled, so if you're looking for some more satisfying revenge plots, READ THIS BOOK!|
