In the third and final book of the Rachel's Peril trilogy, prepare to have everything you thought you knew turned upside down. In the first seven days of this trilogy, everything changed. Now Andrea and Dylan are on the run and the Thompson Sisters are fighting to understand what has happened to their world.
I know I need to write a proper review for Girl of Vengeance but all I have in my head right now are adjectives.
Superb, thrilling, chilling, spellbinding, amazing, talented, outstanding, and victorious…
I would use all of them to describe the book AND the author, Charles Sheehan-Miles.
Girl of Vengeance is the final book in the Rachel’s Peril trilogy. It is NOT a standalone. You really need to read the first 2 before diving into this one. There is a previous series, the Thompson Sisters, that although, do not need to be read first, do help with lay the foundation to these books. Charles Sheehan-Miles is sitting on a masterpiece here. The plot, characters, writing, are all excellent. The pace leaves you almost sweating. It’s so jam packed, so anxiety ridden that even I almost had a panic attack. In fact I put the book down several times. I needed a break. Mostly because I was petrified about the direction author was taking. I was torn between wanting to know and not wanting to know. I feared the story, I feared some of the characters!
There are so many twists and turns, each and every one spell binding. Each one going in a direction I didn’t see coming until the last minute. I had some guesses as to who did what and what would happen in the end. Some were right, some were wrong, some were SHOCKING! This is by far the best series I’ve read as a whole, in a very long time. I still stand by my previous statement, in my review of Girl of Lies, I could definitely see Girl of Lies as a movie.
Except now I want to say I could see Rachel’s Peril trilogy as a movie.
Charlies Sheehan-Miles is a phenomenal writer. His stories are deep, intricately woven, with layers and layers of intrigue, deceit, hope, love, forgiveness, retribution, and revenge. All your questions are answered in Girl of Vengeance. It’s a roller coaster of emotion. Some pages left me in tears. Especially those set in Arlington Cemetery. My dad is in Section 66 and in this book they’re in section 60. I’m not sure why I reacted like I did while reading. Other than to say the author touches on emotions that I often think only I feel. To know there are others who see things similarly…well…
The bottom line; this is a must read trilogy. It’s probably the most epic romance and story of family I’ve ever read.
