Venganza: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs – Review By Chantelle Smith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Venganza is the prequel to Primogénito. Once again this author has pulled out all the stops again to make this read an even better than the last, and just as captivating. I found I just couldn’t put the book down, I read it one sitting and found myself completely and utterly drawn in to what was happening with the characters, this gave us a better insight into Damien and his story, as well as part of Damien & Jenn’s story, but more than that the whole general storyline of all involved was just as captivating in this read than in Primogénito.
This book was thrilling, suspenseful, dark, mysterious, emotional, heart-breaking and shocking.
This book was filled with twists and turns that you never expected, that left you on the edge of your seat, wanting to know what was going to happen, but it also left you reeling after what you were reading.

This was an incredibly gripping, mysterious and suspenseful read that I’m glad I got the chance to experience and will look forward to seeing what else this author can bring.

Venganza: The Fuentes Legacy is the prequel to Primogenito. It can be read as a standalone.

This book was…intense, dark, fearsomely twisted, and kept up a pretty good pace. I read the whole thing in one day because I had to find out how it ended. After I finished it, I realized that this is probably one of those books that would be really great to read on a dark and stormy night. It’ll get to you on so many levels.

The author has worked paranormal elements into the story in such a way that it is very believable. It is a creative tale, and well written.

One thing I will say is that this book is not for anyone who is triggered by violence. There are some very brutal moments that may be difficult for some people to read. I would definitely say this book is not for anyone under the age of 18.

Venganza: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs is definitely an interesting story. One that I am not sure how I feel about it. On one hand it is a quick and compelling read, but on the other hand I was sickened by the heart wrenching turn of events but it is like watching a train wreck, you cannot stop looking. It is a very, very, emotional read and I felt all of the pain and suffering, betrayal and loss that the main character felt. Greta is good at writing very detailed scenes that you can visualise so easily and sometimes get lost in that detail. There is a lot of very, very, dark and graphic scenes to this story that many may be uncomfortable with. The Fuentes Legacy is nothing to be proud of and the dark secrets and lies they keep are atrocious and I found myself wanting to do some serious harm to them. There is lots of drama and suspense, horror and pain, guilt and suffering in this dark tale will go straight to your heart and emotions. So if you like dark and twisted stories then this is story that you will like.

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.

Happy Reading

Venganza: The Fuentes Legacy written by Greta Cribbs. I read book one : Primogenito last year and I’ve been waiting for Venganza. This is about the Fuentes family, with all their secrets. There is a lot going on in this book but it makes it so great, and I don’t mean a lot in the way your thinking, the Fuentes family has done a lot, have a lot of secrets and it seems like they are all coming out. Venganza is Damian and Jenn’s love story with a twist it also tells more in depth about Damian’s kidnapping and torture. Will true love win over the darkness that is the Fuentes family when someone tries to leave it.
The story will suck you from the moment you get past chapter one, the characters you have a love/ hate relationship with. They make the story unique so you love them for that but you have what they have done and who they are.

Venganza: The Fuentes Legacy is the prequel to Primogenito by Greta Cribbs. This book is Damien and Jenn’s story. It is filled with action, suspense, drama and intrigue. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until the last. This is my new favorite book by Greta. I love how detailed her characters and plots are. I felt like I was there in the scenes which was a wild ride at some points. This book had me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole story. I read the book in one sitting because I just had to know how it ended. I would recommend this book, but also caution that it might not be for all reader.

4 Stars!!!!

I have to admit that it was nice to get to read Damian’s story and the prequel to Premogenito. I like how the author is able to spin the tale and bring the characters to life. This book definitely didn’t disappoint.

I found that the drama in the book added so much. To see how Damian and Jenn got together and how Damian’s grandfathers acts shape his life and future. I found the book really grabbed me and kept me at the edge of my seat. To see how the legacy affects the family and how Damian’s father’s actions in trying to leave the family had put all the wheels in motion. I most certainly will be reading more from this author in the future.

Greta Cribbs is a mastermind. Venganza has become one of my favorite books. The tone for this story is a dark thriller. Greta Cribbs does put a warning with this story. I would take it seriously as there are twists and turns around every corner. This story has elements that can shake a person right down to the foundation of their beliefs. Greta Cribbs has created characters that are fully developed and they are on a mission. This story is the prequel to Primogenito. That story tells the fate of Damian at the hands of his grandfather and uncles. Leo is Damian’s father. Renato is Damian’s grandfather who is punishing his father, Leo for leaving his family. If you are wanting a great thriller this is the book for you.

I read Primogénito first and was pretty confused by it. I finally got the prequel I desperately needed! This book shed so much light on everything that happens in Primogénito that I may actually read that one again.
Fans of Stephen King will enjoy these book just for the sheer creepiness of the Fuentes family. It almost would be less terrifying if these books were set in a fantasy world.
Damian’s father, Leo, is the first to try an escape the life of ritual and torture that has been his family’s legacy for centuries. Renato will not tolerate this act of betrayal by his son and kidnaps his grandson to continue the family traditions. Damian suffers more than any child should have to bear for the sins Renato says Leo has committed. Jenn is Damian saving grace and even though I’m doing my absolute best to distance what I know about Primogénito so I don’t spoil anything, I still think Jenn is the only one with even a shred of common sense even though she loves a man who has gone through worse than Hell and will carry it with him forever.
If you like King levels of dark and twisted, read this first and then Primogénito.
