Vengeance Bound - Justina Ireland Short and Sweet:This book had me at the Dexter reference/Greek mythology blurb! I love a good revenge story and Vengeance Bound did not disappoint!To Elaborate....Cory is a terrifying, complex character. Ever since she was a young girl she has been possessed by the Furies and in and out of treatment facilities. The story starts out with Cory institutionalized and in the midst of escape. She intends to get her Furies fueled revenge on with the twisted Dr. Goodhart who has kept her locked up, sedated and worse, but at the last moment she has to leave (vowing to finish the job later).Fast forward a few years. Cory has been searching for the ironically named Dr. Goodhart to no avail. Along the way she and the Furies have left an unrelenting string of deaths. While Cory certainly seems to enjoy 'handing down justice' to criminals, usually she struggles with a desire for normalcy in her life. Thus why she signs herself up for high school. Here Cory meets a group of friends with their own complexities. Before long she finds herself falling for Niko, a guy who won't give up on knowing the 'real' her, and she sees another path that makes her want to change. However, the Furies won't give up their hold on her easily and Cory is losing control.I really enjoyed Vengeance bound with the exception of the huge plot holes involving the TONS of forensic evidence this girl leaves behind after every murder. Other than that a really great story!(Originally published @ http://iheartyafiction.blogspot.com/)
