Book Review: Avenged, by Amy Tintera @amytintera

Avenged by Amy Tintera Book cover and review
I enjoyed Avenged just as much as Ruined and I'm really excited about this series!

Em has rescued her sister, Olivia, and they are now headed back to Ruina to rebuild the castle.  Things are not that easy, though, and Olivia is out for vengeance.  Em has assured Cas, who is now ruling their enemy, that Ruina will not attack and he has assured her he will leave them in peace.  But that isn't good enough for Olivia.

So things get complicated between the three kingdoms. Alliances are made and then broken.  No one trusts anyone.  And all the time, Em just wants to save her kingdom and keep everyone safe - including her enemies.  That isn't a popular opinion, however.

There is a lot of movement between kingdoms and in some books with multiple factions, I tend to get them mixed up.  But not in Avenged. Tintera does a great job of keeping them distinct.

I enjoyed the struggles and how Em is so strong in her beliefs. She's a survivor and a fighter, and I'm rooting for her and Cas to end up happily together -- but that isn't the case yet.

This series is shaping up to be a favorite, and as I said in my review of Ruined, teens who can't get enough of these female heroines who are trying to take over the world will enjoy Avenged.
