Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) By Crystal North

Oh how I love a good story about vengeance. This is more than just a girl getting her revenge though. This is, at it's heart, a love story.

It bounces back and forth between the journal entries of a dead sister and Raven's POV mostly. There are some chapters with the four princes' (Raven's love interests) POV.

One sister is dead. The other wants to know why. She wants those responsible to get what's coming to them.

After getting her sister's journal, written in cyphers in the mail, Charlotte makes a plan to attend the school where her sister died. She changes her name to Raven and her appearance so no one will see the resemblance...then sets out to find the truth.

Lizzie was bullied, but it was worse than the incessant bullying. Lizzie was completely destroyed, broken to the point where almost nothing mattered. She had a feeling things may not end well for her, so she left coded journal entries she knew her twin could solve. After all, Charlotte was the one who could handle anything. Lizzie was gentle and meek.

I won't go into details, but if you have ANY trigger issues, do yourself a favor and find another book.

Charlotte, aka Raven, ends with with four guys falling in love with her during all this. Jax, Ace, Thorn, and Rebel are so hot. It is impossible to pick one over the other even as a reader. I'm definitely glad this was a RH!

Great book. I am surprised more people haven't read this. It is incredible. I have so many questions. Want to read the next book so bad! Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) The word of today is Insanity.

I have told myself to give up on books with plots like this but I never listen. They are always horrible.

I didn't like it, I have read several revenge trope books where the vengeance is never carried out because the heroine falls in love with the bullies or because the heroine doesn't do her research and is instead led astray by the 'friend' that is supposedly helping her. This book had both of that happening. I can't, I'm out ✌🏽. Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) Crystal North is an evil genius! Reading Vengeance was like riding on a wild/terrifying roller coaster. You know what Im talking about- the ones that only adrenaline junkies willingly go on? That is this book, you start out slowly going up hill and then BAM you are racing down the hill, taking sharp turns, and doing upside down loops that make you think you're sure to fly out of your seat! You never know what is going to happen next and just when you think you do, Crystal throws in another sharp turn and your racing downhill once again! I highly recommend this book! There is a large amount of steaming hot scenes, action, sweet romance, and mystery! The perfect start to what promises to be an amazing series! Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) Wow!

Well that one through me for a loop. I saw it coming with who did the deed but I never saw that ending. I'm in a bit of shock right now I think and I can't wait to see what happens next and how it will all play out. Such yummy craziness! Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) Well my state of mind is in shock people. First off, this book is without a doubt one of the best I books I have read this year. So if you have not read this book then you need to. However, please keep in mind that this book does have a trigger warning. What an amazing, thrilling and vengeful book! The emotional turmoil throughout the book is gripping and pulls on your heart with a feeling of no end in sight. There are also moments of bliss and happiness, scary as heck and some deliciously sinful times as well.

So we follow Charlotte aka Raven Deighton to West Prep School. Why does she go to this school? Something tragic happens and she is trying to get answers! So she is on a mission to take down some people for the pain that has been inflicted on her. So when Raven starts school she meets Jax, Rebel, Ace, Thorn the Princes of the school. She also meets the Princesses of the school with Tilly being the psycho of the bunch. However, Raven is prepared with her snarky comments as well as other things. So how close does she get to the enemy? Who are the enemies? All theses questions and more are answered when you read this book. However the twist is the ending... I. DID. NOT. SEE. THAT. COMING!!

Don't miss out on this book. Once you start reading this book you will not want to put it down. Vengeance (Vengeance, #1)

What you’re about to witness comes from a dark place. It’s taken a lot of planning, but you should know that every single thing I’m about to do is deserved. More than deserved, it’s owed, tenfold. Nothing I could do to these people will ever be enough to get even.


Charlotte McLintock has a new identity and a new look as Raven Deighton. She needs it so that she can infiltrate the elite private school that’s covering up her twin’s death. They claimed it was suicide, but she knows better.

Her plan’s been almost two years in the making. What started off as a desire to know the truth has turned into a burning compulsion for vengeance. However, she soon finds that life at Westchester Preparatory Academy’s not what she expected and that everyone’s hiding secrets - even the four hot guys she’s rapidly falling for.

Her one mission is to uncover the truth about what happened to Lizzie so that she can make everyone involved pay, and she’s not about to let anyone or anything - even her own torturous heart- stop her from burning them all to the ground.

Vengeance is a contemporary New Adult reverse harem bully romance, with dark themes and a twist. It works as a savage standalone piece (if you love a cliffhanger) but will actually form part of a trilogy with closure at the end of the series.

This book carries an 18+ warning.
Vengeance is a medium to fast burn dark romance. It contains hot guys, foul language and sexual scenes, including some graphic physical bullying, and potential suicide, depression and sexual assault triggers.
I would love for you to read this book, but please be aware that it comes with a warning. Vengeance (Vengeance, #1)

I enjoyed the premise of this book and the prologue really draws you in. The relationships built are done well, albeit somewhat quickly, and Lizzie’s journal pages definitely add intrigue.

But, the revenge plot seems to fall to wayside for a majority of the book in favor of the romance. I don’t mind it, but it did feel like some of the sex scenes were written way too long and other parts of the book the inner dialogue seemed never ending.

Raven achieves some revenge with the princesses, but I just expected more. All that sparring and not one punch in the face? Especially after they did it to Lizzie?

The guys were great characters, my soft spot is for Rebel. The ending was... deserved for everyone except the guys, in my opinion. I wish she had communicated more and tried harder to find out the truth beyond the diaries. I wish she had confronted them. I’m intrigued into how the cliffhanger goes into the next book. Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) *Spoiler Alert*
Words fail me about this book because it exceeded my expectations on a regular RH school bully book by a mile. The person being bullied in this book is Lizzie. Twin sister to Charlotte (MFC) aka Raven who with the help of Lizzie's Journal and her friend Michael tries to piece together the reason why she took her own life (or if someone else did it instead?) and who drove her to it if that was the case? So Raven enrols in Westchester Preparatory Academy to find out the truth. Complications like four hot guys - Thorn, Ace, Rebel and Jax might get in the way of that happening. This book is so fast-paced i could barely keep up with it but thats what made it so damn good. Brilliant story, hard to read in parts especially some of Lizzie's journal entries but the twists and the revenge as well as that absolutely blinding ending was just amazing!! Couldnt put it down it was that good! Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) Omg what a fantastic book. From the start we get stuck into the story and the sadness reaches right into your core. The storyline starts slow, only revealing small details as we go but boy does this book end on a huge crescendo. The plot was well written and extremely detailed. The characters were exquisite and we're full of life. I loved every second of this contemporary RH, full of darkness and emotions. I'd give this book a million stars if I could! Absolutely perfection! Crystal North is an author to watch! Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) 3.5 Stars!
I enjoyed this book a lot even though there were a lot of things that didn't sit quite right with me. It was fast-paced and interesting. The cliffhanger made sure that I'll be reading the next book. Raven was a strong female lead.

I'd like to read more from this author in the future. Vengeance (Vengeance, #1) What the fuck did I just read this was an emotional rollercoaster it was everything and seriously heart wrenching the more I read the more I wanted to put it down but couldn’t, you seriously need to read this Vengeance (Vengeance, #1)
