    In an unjust land, the only law is vengeance. In Cython’s slave camps, it’s the timid and obedient who survive – and Tali is neither, for she has sworn to bring her mother’s killers to justice. Her dramatic escape precipitates Cython’s war on Hightspall and, when Tali is rescued by Rix, heir to Hightspall’s greatest fortune, they flee through a land in turmoil.

    Story
    If you could sum up Vengeance in three words, what would they be?

    Starts slow, incredible build up and worth the wait. I love the characters and story development.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very witty and several intriguing plot lines that converge.


    Any additional comments?

    In the beginning, it was hard to follow (since many different perspectives and characters telling the story which hadn't yet been explained), but OMG amazing story overall and worth reading. I absolutely loved this book.

    Magery is failing, the war has been lost and Hightspall has fallen. The Cythonian enemy, led by their reincarnated sorcerer-king, Lyf, are determined to wipe it off the map and build their ancient realm of Cythe anew. Rix, now known as Deadhand, was once heir to the greatest fortune in all Hightspall. Now he’s disgraced, dispossessed and is running for his life. Tali, an escaped slave, is held captive. But when she discovers that her enslaved people face genocide at the hands of the enemy, Tali conceives a desperate, impossible plan. But before she can hope to save her people, Tali has to confront her own darkest fear - a return to slavery.

    Story
    Would you listen to Rebellion: The Tainted Realm Trilogy, Book 2 again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to it again. I loved the characters and it has a very interesting plot. This book does not disappoint. It deserves a lot more credit and better reviews then it's gotten on Audible so far. But there have only been a few ratings thus far, so with the small sample size, the ratings it has gotten is not reflective of its awesomeness. I loved the first book, and this book beautifully picks up where the last book left off. I can't wait to read the final book .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! The author is an evil genius! He always teases the reader by ending the story in a major cliff hanger that makes you craving more.
