Vengeance by Rebecca Zanetti

Suspense. Romance. Aliens! No, wait - vampires. And demon hybrids. It’s a whole new world for Abby. And while strange, it’s better than the hassling she still gets from her abusive ex-husband.
Noah is intrigued by the green-eyed human. Fragile yet fierce. He’s drawn to her and will fight to protect her when he witnesses her ex being manipulative and threatening.

Dark Protectors series 9.5. Can be read as a stand-alone romance.

Romantic. Exciting. Sexy hot.

This was just almost a perfect novella. I absolutely love this series and Noah was practically a perfect Dark Protector and Abigailwas a good heroine. The thing that kept this from being a 5 star read for me was (view spoiler)

So I liked Noah and Abby. But the story had too many characters for a novella. There was a lot going on. I enjoyed the story, it just wasn't one of the best in the series. It might be a 3.5, but not worth rounding up. ...more

Let me start off my saying that Rebecca is one of my favorite authors as I love everything she writes and The Dark Protectors is a series that I re-read all the time.I love all the characters associated with this series.

This author has done it yet again this was one funny read.Omg ! we loved this Novella and its character's and I have to say that Ivar made this book down right hilarious!

We loved Abby and Noah as they really made the perfect couple who had amazing chemistry but , also had a great
4.5 stars!

This is such a great read. It’s a novella that links in with the Dark Protectors series (specifically with the new story arc that began in book #8), and the beginning of a new spin-off series – Rebels. It’s funny and dramatic with great action and a gorgeous love story, and I loved it!

Vengeance served straight up smokin'!!!

Ohhhhhhhh, wow! I think this is my new favourite Dark Protectors novella! Seriously, with a killer plot, a fast pace, smoldering attraction, danger, thrilling action, and surprising amounts of humour, this book ticks every single box and delivers more besides!

The characters and circumstances were unique, rife with unpredictability and a charming chaos that just plain worked. I laughed myself silly at the most unexpected of times and thoroughly enjoyed ever

LOOOOOOOOOOVED THIS SO EFFING HARD! I fell good and hard and fast with this sexy and swoon worthy novella in the Dark Protectors/Rebels series. I did not want this story to end that is for sure. It was fun and sweet and crackling with delicious sexual tension and the characters made my heart feel so light and happy. The story was brimming with heat and action and flowed beautifully. Can't get enough of these books and I am already craving more! ...more

Disclaimer: I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely mine.The appeal of this series is never-ending, and every installment just makes me hungrier for more. I for one, am very glad that the author has kept it going and spun off several series from it, and I will keep reading them for as long as she keeps writing them. I wish the story had been a little longer, but part of the fun is trying to connect the dots and characters with the past stories. Abby Miller is i ...more

Vengeance is a short story set in the Dark Protectors/Rebels universe by Rebecca Zanetti. It can read as stand-alone, but after finishing this I have so many questions and I have fallen in love with so many people that I just wanna go and read the rest of the series. The questions I have are about the secondary characters we met and their missions, so don't worry about not getting into the story or feeling left out. Everything we needed to know was explained.

The book might be 167 pages long, but

I love these little side tracks the author takes us on in the world of the Dark Protectors. It looks like this is the first of 3 novella's in the 1001 Dark Nights centered on some loose relations to the characters we have grown to love in the Dark Protectors series.

The whole premise of this one was just perfect. Anger management class?? For a messed up Viking and his baby sitter??/ What better place to meet a potential mate--right?? This is short and dirty. Lots of action. Bad guys, wo

Entertaining as hell! I loved it! It had a little bit of everything action, adventure, suspense, romance and humor. This was the first book I’ve read from the series but it certainly won’t be the last!

I received a free copy of the book from the publisher. 

Vengeance is a short edition of the Dark Protectors series.  You'll meet Noah and Abby - he's a vampire; she's human.  There's a lot going on in this short book.  You'll have to pay attention to all the nuances if you're a Dark Protectors reader you'll see many of this coming. 

The ending of this book will leaving you wanting more.  I'm really looking forward to the next edition in this series so hopefully it will continue where this one left
Quite good. I was distracted, so wasn’t as absorbed by the plot as I would expect to be. I haven’t read the entire Dark Protectors series, but know enough of the story to follow along. I liked Noah. The heroine, Abby, was good too, once she found her backbone - not that I blame her for losing it, her ex-husband is the tool of all tools. I also liked Ivar - I think he is going to get his own book.

Bought from kindle and as part of audible escape package.

Rebecca Zanetti’s books just work for me. I love her writing and I have a special place in my heart for her Dark Protectors series. I was surprised that she was writing a novella before ALPHA’S PROMISE, which comes out in June; mainly because the characters in this novella are completely new. Of course, RZ didn’t steer us wrong, and this looks like the start of another three episode off-shoot like her last three 1001 Dark Night novellas.

This is a novella within the Dark Protectors universe. I wasn’t sure what to expect this time because, from the description, I really wasn’t sure who these characters were. Never fear, some familiar faces pop up in unexpected ways. I’m curious to see how some of the new characters introduced here will tie in with the bigger story.

There’s a lot going on in this small town that the citizens are totally blind to. I absolutely adore how Abby’s court ordered anger management turns into a paranormal s

I will read any and all short stories set in this universe, so I am rapidly filling in all the "gaps." This book was super short, but had all the things you've come to love in this world: smutty goodness, action (in the form of vengeance, among other things), wonderful banter, and a sprinkling of romance.

Noah is out for vengeance (obviously), but is diverted from his cause when Benny drops off a rather broken Viking. Tasked with taking him to anger management group therapy, he never suspected it

This was a great little novella - full of action, fast paced, lots of hot sexy attraction and funny to go with it - a great way to be introduced to the Dark Protectors series!

Noah is a hybrid vampire/demon looking to avenge his brother's death. His tracking has led him to a small town where he is put in anger management classes along with some other supernaturals and a human named Abby, a woman who is in the group due to allegedly attacking her abusive and controlling ex-husband.

Noah is a vampire soldier that is on the hunt for the man who killed his brother. But he gets dragged into an anger management group in order to help someone out in exchange for a lead to that man. Abby has been court ordered to attend the group because of her ex husband. He is friends with not only the sheriff but the judge in their small to ...more

I've not read anything from Rebecca Zanetti yet and what I love about these 1001 Dark Nights novella's is that they give you a chance to be introduced to some new authors. Once I started I was hooked so I will certainly be going to check out the rest of this Dark Protectors series.

Noah is seeking vengeance after losing his brother and ends up in a human anger management group where he meets Abby. She has been ordered by the court to attend this group after she is set up by her abusive ex-husband

More Dark Protectors/Rebels entertainment! What a gangly group of humans and immortals. They’re awkward and secretive and completely funny. Anger Management! Haha!

First of all, Ivar’s trauma is so painful but he does add levity.

Mariana just wants to rob a bank...and tries! But she also comes through for Abby and Noah more than once.

Raine is a PITA but even he adds an element of fun and sarcasm. And it’s quite obvious he has a little bit of a thing for the good doctor, who is completely mystifi

This novella is about characters also in the novella Vixen, which I've already read. Didn't make this one any less good, but actually helped in my reading of this one.

Noah Siosal is a vampire bent on , who is trying to get revenge. He lost his best friend, a man he considered his brother, and now is looking for revenge. His friend Bennie, drops off Ivar, and signs them both up for anger management. Noah meets Abby Miller there, who is trying to escape a bad relationship that keeps following her.
This novella confused the heck out of me. In the early four books Noah Siosal was the top Enforcer of the Feline Nation along with his two brothers, neither named Clyde. In book 4 Zanetti changed the shifter brothers surname (which wasn’t the last time she did that to a character btw). So of course when I saw this was a novella about Noah Siosal I was excited to revisit the Feline Nation with three favorite characters who’ve disappeared from the series pretty much after book four. Nope! Noah Sio ...more
