This is an ARC. I was supposed to post this review in time for the blog tour but was not able to. I got the ARC from the author who reached out to me through the contact us form of this blog. Thank you again Charlene Johnson and Kingston Publishing for the ARC. I am sorry that this review came late but better late than never, right?

This is the second book of the series. I have not read book one but this book is comprehensive enough and is a stand alone. I was still able to keep up with the story

I loved reading this book. It is full of exciting paranormal drama, danger and secrets. This is different than book one "Shattered". In Shattered, Drake Devereaux is the main character. Whereas, in book two, Avenged, Broderick Devereaux, Drake's father, is the main character. Broderick is a former illustrious district attorney. There were cases he could not solve. He realized that something strange connected them and that they could not be solved through regular legal channels. Suspecting Solomo ...more

Avenged: Circle of the Red Scorpion is a very suspenseful book. The story centers around the Devereaux, Broderick, and his son Drake who start a covert organization to protect and bring justice against perpetrators of crime against humans and preternaturals. It becomes personal when Drake's beloved Ebony is kidnapped. Then again, it all began with Broderick's wife, Elise. The story also ends with her, so the next book is hopefully coming out soon as I need to know what happens next.

Shattered and Avenged are your typical vampire stories. I was drawn to these books because of the blurbs and I love romance. Was I disappointed? Somewhat, because both books were more erotic romance than steamy romance, and I think the author focused more on the sex than love. The stories were intriguing and they had a lot of twists and turns that will keep the reader interested in them, but I was expecting more; something outside of the box. I didn't want the vampires to be typical. I will read ...more

This story is even better than book 1 which I totally loved but I won’t give away too many spoilers. Drake’s father Broderick has been invited to his sons wedding they haven’t had any kind of relationship but Broderick wants to make things right. When Broderick finds out that Solomon is after Ebony he needs to tell his son everything that Solomon has done to him but he ends up being too late. That’s all I’m going to give but know that there is so much more to this story to keep you entertained a ...more

I am addicted to this series and never want it to end. This author writes in a style that is so refreshing and realistic. Even though most of the characters are of a paranormal nature, she is able to make a reader feel that these characters could actually exist in the real world. Her passion and dedication to building the story lines of her characters is exceptional. Every time she introduces another character I want to learn everything there is to know. I hope that she soon gets the recognition ...more

We learn more about Broderick in this second book of the series. He has a family secret, and this book explores that as well as Solomon's obsession with Ebony. This book had plenty of intrigue, and we'll find out whether Solomon finds a way to get to Ebony or not. There's steam, mysterious troubles, and a battle, but Broderick has more trouble in store for him. I liked this book, and it's drawn me into the series even deeper. Looking forward to seeing how it all resolves. ...more

Addicted to the series, absolutely love it.
Each book just gets better and better every time I read a book from the series. Wonderful characters that can be related to. These books you won't want to put down, you'll be hooked from the start, I enjoyed reading them. I'd recommend your books to anyone. Loaded up with a drink so I could cuddle up and read it.

This is the 3rd book I’ve read written by Charlene Johnson; she has done a good job at writing a good book. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.
