#2 Kiss of Vengeance — 2.5 Stars

Trust me, no one is more shocked than I am right now that I. DID. NOT. LIKE. THIS. BOOK. And there are three possible scenarios as to why that happened.

(1) My foul mood just happened to rear its ugly head at the awful moment and ruined everything.

I was like this poor lifeless kitten who didn’t know how to have fun. It was a miserable existence.

(2) This book suffers from the middle book syndrome, which technicall

No one had ever kissed her like Fionn. Like she was air. Life. Food and water all in one.

I am completely obsessed with this vividly rich world that Young has created and my obsession only grows with each new book. I thought I loved the first book in this series, so I was completely unprepared just how much more this one would suck me in. WOW.

PNR was the genre that made me fall in love with romance. So suffice it to say I'm incredibly picky when it comes to it. There's somethin

Butterflies fluttered in Rose’s belly at the thought of seeing Fionn again. Who knew it was possible to have such conflicting feelings for someone? Rose was still unbearably attracted to him, still felt protective toward him, and yet she was a furious, churning volcano of bitterness and resentment too. Rose had sacrificed herself to save Fionn’s life…and he wouldn’t even consider giving up his revenge for her.

a great addition to the series..I liked these characters but I am even more excited about the next book...

Rose Kelly is a 25 yr. old Irish-American woman who was raised in Maryland. Her entire life she’d felt like a piece of her was missing. For the last three years she’s been a nomad wandering around Europe going from job to job. She’s currently bar tending, and contemplating her next move when she’s attacked by a vampire who causes her to hit her head and release a spell that had been put on her to block her powers she didn’t know existed.

I LOVED War of Hearts. So it's no surprise that I have high expectations for this one

Can Samantha Young write a bad book? The answer is a big fat NO.
I have been revisiting old favourites and trying out Samantha Young's new releases and so far I have yet to be disappointed.
Book 1 in the True Immortality series was EPIC! so it's a tough act to follow but Kiss of Vengeance was still just as good. Actually that's a lie.... Book 1 was really REALLY good but I really enjoyed Kiss of Vengeance t

OMG, what a read! Exciting, intense, fun and action-packed with a slow-burning, chemistry-filled romance that had me madly flipping pages. I could not put this book down, and I absolutely loved it!

This book is the second in the True Immortality series. You don’t need to have read the first book, War of Hearts, in order to follow this one, but I would recommend it. Not only does this book contain spoilers for the first book, but it will help you understand the complex paranormal world. P

This second in the True Immortality series is definitely a standalone, the characters do ultimately connect to the wider story but you could start here if you wished (don’t do that, read book one). Thea and Connor from book one do make an appearance later in the story too. This book however focused on Rose who briefly appeared in WAR OF HEARTS. Rose was roaming Europe, stopping to work in cities when she encountered a bunch of odd people one evening in the bar she worked in. One of those people ...more

“I am nothing if I am not my revenge.”

Myths, legends, and folk lore are brought to life once again in Samantha Young’s second instalment in her seductive True Immortality series, as she spins another spellbinding tale set in this fantastical new world with the story of a young woman who finds herself the target of a two-thousand-year-old vendetta. By never taking her foot off the gas, Young delivers the kind of action-packed page-turner that both grips you like an undertow and cuts s

I loved, loved, loved book 1, War of hearts...there's no doubt about it BUT...

I have no words about this one, I'm in awe of this strong heroine, Rose...she's awesome...

And Fionn Mor...there's no more tormented hero than him and yet the power he charges...just dayum...

This is your next power fae couple...

And I can't wait to read the next installment that will hopefully deliver another power couple to life...

Fingers crossed that they are the ones i imagined (Kiyo and Niamh) *eeeeek*

“You have to trust him, Rose. Even when he makes it impossible. Don’t let us down now.”

Kiss of Vengeance was a mammoth of a book in Sam Young’s new paranormal series about Fae, Vampires, Wolves, Witches and Warlocks. We are absolutely loving this series, which is the type of brilliantly written paranormal that speaks right to our hearts. Whilst we didn’t end up loving it as much as War of Hearts, the first book in this series, we still fell utterly in love with Rose and Fionn as individual c

"No one had ever kissed her like Fionn. Like she was air. Life. Food and water all in one."

Kiss of Vengeance is the second installment to S. Young's True Immortality series. Though it could be read as a standalone, I suggest reading the books in order as there is so much more information about Fionn Mór.

Rose Kelly is lost and doesn't know her purpose in the world. She's been a nomad for sometime, never staying in one place for too long. One night at a nightclub in Croatia du

Even though I had to push myself at the beginning, I enjoyed the story because I was already invested in the world Young has brilliantly built since book one. The writing was flawless and I loved the female lead and the side characters. I also enjoyed what I love most about the series, (this and every thing after is kinda spoilers) the heroines can actually save themselves and the men they love.

Most of the fun happened after the truth was out, and it got a bit repetitive because I already know m

I feel like this was good, but really failed to live up to the first book. Maybe it’s just suffering from ‘middle book syndrome’, but it was still a generally enjoyable book. I loved the overarching story in this book (as extended from the first book) and really enjoyed how it developed from the first book. Because of this, I am still super excited to read the next book in the series. While I loved the paranormal story, the romance was VERY FRUSTRATING! It was still sexy and had sweet m

HOW DOES THE AUTHOR CONTINUE TO WRITE SUCH ENTHRALLING STORIES AND LOVABLE CHARACTERS?! And honestly what a coincidence... I finished this book just in time for the 3rd book to come out tomorrow.

She was his new obsession. She was everything. A vital, imperative piece of him, and Fionn Mor realized that if he gave her up, he'd not only destroy the one person that meant most to him, he'd destroy himself, too.

Kiss of Vengeance has a similar theme to the first one in which we follow two people

RATING: 5 'Mo Chroí' HEARTS! <3

Kiss of Vengeance is pure adventurous entertainment from beginning to end, action-filled scenes against a plethora of gorgeous backdrops and a passionate romance that defies the test of time. I loved Fionn and Rose so much!

I am so excited for Kiyo and Niamh's story next...I can already feel the angst and tension!

Not as good as War of Hearts, I din't feel the connection between Fionn and Rose as strongly as with Thea and Conall.

Still, it had it's moments of action and mystery. The scenes inside the Sagrada Familia were favorite of mine even though the architect in me repelled for every small destruction.

The most hot scene IMHO wasn't one of Fionn and Rose. It was of Fionn fighting with the mysterious reserved Kiyo in the underground fighting club. And guess what? Kiyo gets his own story next with Niamh,

It's no secret that I love PNR romance. Whenever I need a palette cleanser, this is my go-t0 and Young does not disappoint. This is a slow-burn romance between Fionn Mór and Rose Kelly.
The secrets, the action-packed adventure, the possibility of something more between these two characters who had such an undeniable connection kept me glued to my kindle. I am IN LOVE with this series and it is a must-read for PNR fans... Young's words are simply magical.
Mar 04, 2020 marked it as skimmed
I liked the first in the series, so I was excited for this one.

It started well. I liked the vibe.

But it did have one of those, “OMG, I’m a supernatural, how is this possible, I can’t believe it” themes which I always find so tedious and annoying to read.

I found myself skimming a lot of the boring “history” stuff. So many names and people... I just don’t have the brain power to take all the crap in right now. I also skimmed a lot of the info dumps. I think the author could have found a better way

I have mixed feelings on this one. I thought the series would go one way. I don’t know that it is. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve enjoyed many parts of this book. I read pretty much anything from Samantha. I’ll keep reading this series. Maybe it’s one that will just make more sense later.

I keep being told the hero wants/ needs vengeance. I feel like I haven’t been shown it. I don’t feel it. It kind of talked about near the end. It’s not strong enough to drive the story. It’s mentioned so m

“Fionn was a stranger.
Even if he didn’t feel like one.
Even if he felt like that elusive something she’d been searching for her whole life.”
“He wasn’t even a man.
He was a six-foot-seven behemoth of hotness. A fae warrior king who was frustrating, implacable, Powerful with a capital P, and fiercely noble in a way she’d never encountered.
Every time she looked into his spring-green eyes, her belly fluttered.
Actually fluttered.
Rose wanted him.
And for once, she didn’t feel like giving up so easily.”
