Venganza: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs was a dark twisted tale, that had me not only hooked but it had me shielding my eyes and holding my breath.
My first read by this author, and I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. This is a prequel novel, so I do suggest (even if I didn’t) reading that first book. It probably would have cleared somethings up for me, but in all, even without reading the first book, I didn’t feel like anything was confusing.
Wow, if I could I leave my read as just that I would, but I’m not in that business, so let me elaborate, shall we.
Told with a sinister tone and gritty scenes, I was pulled into this pretty much instantly. Rich with darkness and graphic scenes, I had to look away like I was watching a horror movie. For to have such things done by one’s own family, horrendous and pure nightmare fuel. The story itself has a nice steady flow, with intertwined ribbons of darkness, creating a tension that stays with the story as you read and become more immersed. I have to say I don’t think I have read anything like this book, and I want more.
As this is a prequel to the main series, I’m going to leave my review here as anything will spoil this haunting tale. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you’ll not only be captured by this unique original horror, but you’ll be left wanting much, much, more.
