Tour Stop and Review plus Giveaway: PIECES OF REVENGE by Valia Lind

Author: Valia Lind
Genre: YA, Thriller

A weapon. A broken life. A humanity lost.

That is all Anastasia knows, that is all that she is. As an eleven-year-old, she witnessed her family's brutal murder and she's been on the run ever since. She's spent her life training and planning for the day when she can take her revenge.

Kallos Enterprises is a well respected corporation, set on improving the genetic structure of an individual. Or so they say. Anastasia knows, first hand, what kind of monsters lurk behind the pretty walls of those skyscrapers. Armed with combat skills and a beyond perfect memory, she heads to Chicago to uncover the answers to questions that plagued her for years.

After arriving in the city, she meets Logan, a boy from her past who changes all the rules. She doesn't remember him, but he remembers her. His position at Kallos Enterprises is useful, his presence is unnerving, and he makes her question everything she knows about herself to be true. If her perfect memory can't remember Logan, what else about her past is wrong?

Time is running out. Anastasia has nowhere to turn, but to trust the one person who's a memory she should have, but doesn't. With a madman threatening their every step, Anastasia and Logan must uncover the truths behind Kallos experiments and hope that the answers they find won't destroy the world forever.



Book Review
 Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Honestly I was terrified to start Pieces of Revenge. I became a big fan of Valia Lind after reading the first two books in the Falling series and I'm scared that I might end up not liking this book. I hate not loving a book by an author I love and since this book is very different from Valia Lind's other books, I was afraid that this might not turn out as great as I expected it to. Turns out, I got worried for nothing.

Pieces of Revenge will surprise you in a really good way. It was full of angst, excitement and mystery from the beginning that will keep you reading until the end.
The female protagonist, Anastasia, has definitely been added to my list of top kickass female characters. She's sassy, quick-tempered and spontaneous. I love how she says exactly what she thinks and does what she knows is right. She's very protective of the people she cares about and I greatly admire that about her. She's the kind of person who always thinks about others before herself and that often puts her in dangerous, life or death situations. Very few things scare her. One being Logan. Anastasia didn't expect the intensity and connection she felt with Logan and she doesn't know what to do about it. She's cautious of getting close to people after what she witnessed happen to her parents so she keeps everyone at arms length. But Logan is unexpected and different. He's sweet and charming and he knows things way more than he should.

I love how this book is full of intrigue, action and romance. The storyline was believable and well-written and the side characters were quirky and I love meeting everyone (well maybe not everyone) of them especially Uncle Freddie. He's an odd character but I absolutely love him.
I was surprised with some of the twists thrown my way and I literally screamed when I got to the last few pages of the book. What is it with authors and cliffhangers? Do they just love torturing us? To see us dying of excitement and anticipation? 
This is a great book to start a series!

I received an e-arc of the book to read and review.
