Reviews and Praise
Outstanding. No other words for it. I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I found out she was writing it and it has honestly surpassed any expectation I had. The writing is flawless and the story is incredibly dark but heartbreaking. The relationship between Tessa and Eric and Nathan is beautifully interwoven and their story of revenge is cleverly written. There’s moments when it is incredibly dark but you can’t help but root for them and fall in love with their story. Incredible debut and I’m beyond excited for the next story.

I'd say ten hail Mary's if I thought it would cleanse my soul and help my sanity after finishing this book. Michaella Dieter may owe me therapy after breaking my heart and blowing my mind. Another amazing book that took my feelings hostage and used them against me.
Did I like Trey in Upon Blooded Lips? Yes. Do I love Trey after reading Retribution? Absobloodylutely.
I don't like doing reviews that give spoilers but Rebecca is just, she's a beautiful tragedy in all her brokeness and I hope anyone that meets her appreciates all that she is and that she becomes. I will fight anyone that disagrees. That lassie was thrown into the abyss and dragged across the coals of hell yet still stood up and told the world to fuck itself.
I'm a lover of character crossovers so of course I was as giddy as a drunken aunt at a wedding when some familiar faces popped up, even more so when they were more firmly in the limelight. I cannot wait for Vengeance Mine. I may have my own wee girl crush happening....on three female characters so the next book I'm sure will firmly solidify those into full blown love.
I hope the author keeps pushing the boundaries with her work. The topics she chooses are dark and painful but also something that happens daily and that I wish more people were educated on.

First off - if I could give this story more than 5 stars, I would a thousand times over. Second - if you have ANY triggers, please read the warnings because Michaella doesn’t just play in the dark, she owns it. Third - this isn’t really a standalone read, I would advise reading Upon Blooded Lips and Retribution (if you haven’t already) before diving into this one so you know who everyone is and how everything ties together.
The plot is mind blowing - it’s fast paced, hot, suspenseful, heartbreaking, oh so dark and rewarding. Michaella went above and beyond building a world of characters that each have a place in my heart and soul within a story that I won’t forget for anytime soon. She weaved past events with the present flawlessly along with giving multiple POVs that let me get closer to everyone. One of my favorite things this talented author did was write the villain’s POV - I haven’t ran across this and I hated how much I loved seeing how truly narcissistic and psychotic he truly was…but the icing on the cake was seeing his downfall thru his eyes. Don’t even get me started on the Easter egg surprises Michaella threw in that had me squealing, this woman did a fantastic job of adding that in and caught me completely off guard with it. EVERYTHING about this book is just pure perfection.
I loved every single word thru all my tears I shed, every laugh that escaped, and all the victory shouts I scared my husband with. Michaella had me glued to my kindle thru it all and her talent of bloodthirsty vengeance shines like beacon. This is definitely one of my favorite reads of all time and will be added to my physical library of other preciouses.
