Review: Vengeance (Transcend Time Saga, #2)



Vengeance

Author: Michelle Madow

Summary:

How far would you go to get revenge?

When Chelsea Givens discovered that her ex-boyfriend Drew dumped her to be with her former best friend Lizzie, she'd never felt so betrayed in her life. Then her new friend Shannon tells her she can help set things right. Chelsea's willing to listen, but what Shannon wants her to believe -- that she shared a past life with Drew -- is impossible. And what she wants her to do to get him back … well, it's downright crazy.

Could Shannon be telling the truth? And if she is, what lengths will Chelsea go if it means making Lizzie pay?

Find out in Vengeance, the second part of the Transcend Time Saga.

Vengeance is the short story that bridges the events in Remembrance and the final book in the saga.

HAPPY!

The sequel to Remembrance came fast enough, thanks to Michelle Madow! And, sure enough, Vengeance did not disappoint, and now I am more than excited for the last installment in the series.

The story is short, that I do admit, but it makes up for whatever flaws Remembrance had.

Fast-paced, smooth and straight to the point, Vengeance showed us another side of the tale through Chelsea's eyes. While Chelsea doesn't fully redeem herself in this novella, in my heart, she becomes a more realistic and wholesome character than Lizzy whom I still find difficult to empathize with.

Gladly speaking, the story goes on to a totally new level in these 50 pages, becoming much more of a delight than Remembrance. We are now hung in suspense because in this novel we finally see Madow's skills as a meticulous writer. After all, we never did know the exact ending and fate of the characters in their previous lives.

We know that Lizzy didn't end up with Drew then. So who did Drew end up with?

While we are toying around with different outcomes for the various characters, Madow hands us Chelsea's version of things. In her flashes of her past life, she sees her and Drew walking down the altar. Determined that they were meant to be together, Chelsea goes to great lengths to ensnare her love. The novella ends in a flourish, with her as confident as ever that she had saved herself from eventual heartbreak.

Or did she?

Ending with a cliffhanger, Vengeance has all of my curiousity and expectations aroused.

Hands down, the best fifty pages that completely made my day.
