ATOMR Presents Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland Blog Tour Stop

Title: Vengeance Bound
Author: Justina Ireland
Release date: April 2, 2013




Book Description:

The Goddess Test meets Dexter in an edgy, compelling debut about one teen’s quest for revenge… no matter how far it takes her.

Cory Graff is not alone in her head. Bound to a deal of desperation made when she was a child, Cory’s mind houses the Furies—the hawk and the serpent—lingering always, waiting for her to satisfy their bloodlust. After escaping the asylum where she was trapped for years, Cory knows how to keep the Furies quiet. By day, she lives a normal life, but by night, she tracks down targets the Furies send her way. And she brings down Justice upon them.

Cory’s perfected her system of survival, but when she meets a mysterious boy named Niko at her new school, she can’t figure out how she feels about him. For the first time, the Furies are quiet in her head around a guy. But does this mean that Cory’s finally found someone who she can trust, or are there greater factors at work? As Cory’s mind becomes a battlefield, with the Furies fighting for control, Cory will have to put everything on the line to hold on to what she’s worked so hard to build.

My Review

5 of 5 Vengeance Bound

The Furies and Mythology what more could I ask for. I love mythology and the love the story of the furies. Lord they were some ruthless women who did not take crap from anyone and doled out vengeance like there was no tomorrow. Justina Ireland took me by storm by this book. From the opening sentence to ending sentence I was enthralled by this book and how everything came together and fit together nicely.

Cory looks like your normal teenage girl but Cory has a secret. She has escaped the asylum where she has been for years. She was placed there for her safety and others. See Cory carries the furies in her mind and they control her and as you know the furies are all for violence and getting revenge when they have been wronged. Cory has learned how to keep the furies at bay and she does it well enough that she can go out and live on her own. See Cory lives a normal life during the day by going to school and hanging out with friends and doing homework but at night boy oh boy that is where the fun is because the furies come out and dole out their vengeance. The furies are nothing to mess with at night but in the morning Cory goes back to her normal routine.

It is in this normal morning routine that Cory meets a very mysterious boy Niko. Niko is quiet and keeps to himself but something about him quiets the furies in Cory's mind and she for the first time does not know what to think about that. Can she have feelings for Niko? Can she be with him? Will she hurt him? What secrets are Niko keeping? Is Niko good for Cory? What does it mean when the furies are quiet? They are never quiet but around Niko they are. I will not spoil it for you because this is a must read book! So what ya waiting for April 02 is the official release day for this book!
