Knight Angels: Book of Revenge - Abra Ebner - Blog Tour Review

Task One: Kill Her

"I glanced at Jane, thinking of Avery once again. Avery had been my attempt to fit in with their world and accept my fate. Jane had been my reason to leave it, and find purpose within my seemingly endless life..."

Title: Book of Revenge (Knight Angels #2)
Author: Abra Ebner
Genre: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy

Publication Date: October 2010
Source: Received from author courtesy of Teen Book Scene. Many thanks goes to both Abra Ebner and Kari from Teen Book Scene for sending me this book for review. I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review. This review is part of the official Knight Angels: Book of Revenge blog tour.
My rating: 4/5

Knight Angels: Book of Revenge picks up where Book of Love left off. It is just a few days later, and everyone is heading back to school. However certain side characters are revealed now in a different light, and come more to the forefront. There are also a few other new characters, Avery for one. She has a past history with Max and is jealous of his relationship with Jane. She'll do anything to get revenge. Wes and Emily are working out the kinks in their relationship as Wes is having a hard time with Emily knowing everything he even thinks. Things become more interesting for the two of them when several new characters arrive and complicate matters. 
Book of Revenge continues with the narration changing between the four friends, Jane, Max, Emily and Wes. Though there are no chapter headings in this installment either, the book continues at a swift pace with a sense of urgency maintained throughout. It was interesting seeing what certain characters knew before others, and how it affected the group dynamics. 
With four characters narrating the story one would be worried that the story line would get lost, or further confuse readers, however that is not the case. Each voice is distinct in this installment, as well as the previous one, and I found that I enjoyed this volume more. I also found myself more in suspense with this one as I didn't know what would happen in the end. I thoroughly enjoyed the ending of this book as it wasn't what I expected and it leaves things wide open for the next volume in the series. More questions arise, and I can't wait to read how things are resolved. I really hope we get to see more of the new characters, and can't wait to see what is in store for them all. 
All in all, a strong follow up to Book of Love. I can't express how much I enjoyed this novel, and the situations the characters found themselves in. I really can't wait to find out what Ebner has up her sleeve for Jane, Max, Emily and Wes, as things have been amped up for them. If you haven't read Book of Revenge I urge you to give it a read as the new characters bring more to the story.
