Revenge is worth its weight in gold.

When her father is murdered for a journal revealing the location of a hidden gold mine, eighteen-year-old Kate Thompson disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers—and justice. What she finds are untrustworthy strangers, endless dust and heat, and a surprising band of allies, among them a young Apache girl and a pair of stubborn brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, a startling truth becomes clear: some men will stop at nothing to get their hands on gold, and Kate’s quest for revenge may prove fatal.

I was so excited to read this book, I loved the map inside and the cover got me excited. Overall I enjoyed this book. It gave you a realistic view of the west, no sugar coating in this book, however as it got closer to the end, I felt the it started to get a bit sugar coated and the rawness that I enjoyed it the beginning seemed to loose it’s steam.

Kate was a great MC, I loved how determined she was to avenge her father but I also felt that she was holding back a lot. Jesse and Will were great characters however, I was having a hard time getting them to mesh together. Like, I felt the character build was missing something. I am not sure what was missing but I didn’t connect with them as much as I wanted. I did enjoy them and the story was pretty good. It took a slow pace but as it got closer to the end I started to enjoy it a lot more. I sort of was disappointed with the romance, I sort of wanted it more in the background, I like how the story was going but felt that a little romance would have been fine but somewhere in the middle it sort of switched directions.

Vengeance Road wasn’t a bad book, I actually enjoyed it but it sort of fell flat for me. I think I was looking for a lot more grit and vengeance but I didn’t feel like I got that. I wanted less romance and more old west. If you like romance and gritty westerns you will LOVE this book. 🙂


Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

    • It am really liking the realistic view to it. I haven’t read a lot of western type books that really give you the raw feel of how the west really was. After watching that show the young riders this book is perfect to go along with it.
