Review Tour and Giveaway: The Revenger by Debra Anastasia
The real hero of this story is dead. You should have met him. He was a beautiful man. The love of my life. I didn’t deserve him.
Now what’s left are the jagged edges of the person I am without him, and what I have to do to get by. This isn’t even a story about love. Not really. It’s a twisted tale of revenge and hate—a happily never after.
The only man in my life now is the one I have to kill.
I’m Savvy Raine.
I used to be a wife.
I used to be a mother.
Now I am the Revenger.
There was very little chatter after the alarming phone call. Savvy looked at the clock. It was only five, but the extra help Tallow had enlisted acted like she was about to disintegrate. When they were finally done, they hung Savvy’s costume from a door, fully expecting her to drop trou in front of all the strangers.
She looked at the silver outfit meant to demean her and classify her as his, just like all his other favorites.
“Yeah, I’m not actually going to be wearing that.” She looked from one shocked person to the other.
Tallow recovered first. “But this is what he told you to wear!”
Savvy laughed hollowly. “Yeah, he can suck his own d*ck for all I care.”
The atmosphere changed. The others now realized Savvy didn’t think it was a huge honor to be a f*ckhole.
“That’s not acceptable. I’ll put you in it myself if I have to, but you’re leaving here in that outfit.” Tallow bravely gathered up the skirt and came into Savvy’s personal space. He obviously thought she was just a regular girl.
In an instant she’d lifted Tallow into the air by his neck. “I’m not wearing it.” She stared him down until he began to turn blue. Then she set him back on his feet.
Tallow was a quick learner and smoothed his fancy shirt. “Okay then, let me see what else we have.”
* 4 Star Review *
Where do I start with this review? This book is unlike anything I have read. It's raw, gritty, sad and redeeming all at once. Its unique storyline had me drawn to it for a while now.
Have you ever read one of those books where you told yourself that you needed a boo like this at a particular moment but didn't realize you needed it until you read it? That's this book for me. Sure, I love dark books. I like books that give me so much more than a baseline of a story. This one is so much more than that!
I have only read one of Debra's books in the past. So, going into this one had me a little leary. The last one I read was more of a funny read. This one? Nope. I knew that from the get go, but sometimes when you read one type of book from an author, you are afraid to read anything else. That's exactly where I was at.
If you read the other reviews, do NOT let the paranormal part of this story scare you off, if that isn't your thing. The paranormal part is just a small element to the story. It gives it that extra umph the story needs to be told. This is such an emotional book, twisted and raw in the right ways. All of the ways I love a book to be.
Don't be fooled. This isn't just some woman going on a killing spree. This is a broken woman taking revenge. This is a story about a woman learning to heal in the most horrific yet delicious way possible. Debra told this story from deep within her somewhere. Where ever she pulled this story from, she needs to do it over and over again. This is definitely a book that should be read.
