Jamie Canosa's Vengeance

Things aren’t always as they seem. In fact, in a world of secrets and lies, almost nothing ever is. But, Kaleigh made her choices and now she has to live with the consequences. 

Haunted by her guilt, Kaleigh is forced to question everything she thought she knew. From friends and foes, to loyalty and love, she’s quickly losing faith in herself and those around her. 

Everyone she cares about has been launched to the front lines, but can Kaleigh find the strength within herself to keep fighting? Or, surrounded by loss, deceit, and betrayal, will her fiery spirit finally be extinguished?

My Review:
As a huge fan of Jamie Canosa's Dissidence, I couldn't wait for the sequel. But then I worried it might not be as good as the first. Sometimes when you're a little fanatical over something, any sequels will just disappoint. I can tell you right now that with the sequel, Vengeance, Jamie definitely didn't disappoint.

Vengeance begins right where Dissidence left off, in the wake of the explosion Kaleigh was right smack in the middle of. And the story never slows down. This time Kaleigh finds she has a new enemy to contend with. And she's contending with it in the midst of her overwhelming guilt and grief from how wrong things seem to have gone, and a strong desire for revenge that almost eclipses everything else.

This sequel is fast-paced, full of Kaleigh's fiery wit and sarcasm that so endeared me to her in the first book, and holds true to the love story that began when first she realized she had a choice to make between the two men who love her. I can't say enough good about this book. Once you start reading it, you won't be able to stop until you get to the perfect ending. If you're a fan of good writing, humor, romance, and non-stop action, then this book is one you won't want to miss.
Vengeance is the sequel to Dissidence, which you can read about below

In dystopian America, sixteen-year-old Kaleigh finds out quickly what having a big mouth and not enough brains to keep it shut can earn you. A one-way ticket to the work camps that no one even knows exists.

Nuclear war has ravished the nation, and a century later, the survivors are living in an entirely new world. In a society where everything is decided for you, from where you work to who you marry, dissidence is not taken lightly.

But, even inside the camps, Kaleigh’s fiery spirit refuses to be extinguished. In a single moment of defiance, she manages to spark a riot that ignites into a full-blown rebellion.

Dissidence available at: Amazon and Barnes & Noble
