Passion is blind in vengeance and love...
Ayden's suburban home was invaded by a pack of Lycans.
The brutal attack is the only memory she carries of her former life.
Now, one motive burns in her soul:
KILL. THEM. ALL.
The Sons of Wrath -- a brood of vengeance-dealing warrior demons -- band with Ayden to hunt the Lycans on Detroit's most deadly feeding grounds.
Kane Walker should've been her easiest kill.
Unfortunately, the newly bitten Lycan has something she wants -- clues that may finally lay her past to rest. To reach them, she must be willing to submit to the sensual pleasures awakened by his touch.
Time is running out.
In seven days, Kane will become what Ayden despises most. She can halt his transformation but the antidote requires the ultimate sacrifice. As the beast takes hold, Kane becomes more of a threat.
Ayden must choose between her lust for revenge, or surrender to her enemy and discover the horrible truth.
Sons of Wrath
Never gamble with vengeance.
Even after sitting and absorbing this incredible story, I still can't put all my feelings into words...
Soul Avenged is a book that made my adrenaline pump, turned my stomach, made my heart ache, and my soul soar. It's so very well written - a uniquely dark world filled with engaging characters. And the story drew me in - made me care for each of the characters. The way Ms. Lake wove together these intricate story threads around an overall plot arc created a riveting read.
My heart hurt for Ayden - so singularly focused on her revenge. She was so in need of someone to show her love in a way she'd accept.
My heart broke for Gavin. He wanted Ayden to be something she couldn't be. I felt like he knew this, deep down, but was too stubborn to let go of his desire. But he is such a good guy - as Ayden said. The love and loyalty he feels towards his brothers was proof of that.
Kane provided much needed comic relief - strange, considering he was facing certain death. I adored that he could maintain a sense of humor in the face of all he was suffering. I think maybe it was his smartass remarks that helped melt Ayden a little.
The other sons of Wrath, along with the Alexi soldiers and Gavin's house staff, rounded out an excellent cast. I know I'll be learning more and more as the story continues and I'm grateful for that. Well developed characters and amazing world building made for such a fascinating read. I am so glad I one-clicked this series.
