I read Relentless as part of the #RockMyTBR challenge. I purchased Relentless as a result of Indiemas, hosted by the lovely S. Usher Evans.
Wow. Ok. I have been binge-reading romance lately and totally needed a break from it. Considering how far behind I am on the #RockMyTBR challenge, I chose something from there.
Sara Grey’s world shattered ten years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now at seventeen, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara’s own very powerful gift.
In her quest for answers about her father’s death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara’s world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it’s the last thing she wants.
Sara’s life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her. (Goodreads)
I give Relentless 5 out of 5 stars!
Hmm, now what can I say without giving too much away?
I really liked Sara. She put a lot of effort into keeping her friends and family safe from her secrets. She was dealing with A LOT of stuff in this book, and although she felt overwhelmed, she wasn’t the whiny, helpless little girl that a lot of protagonists are (although she was very fortunate to have the help that she did in some very critical situations). She continued to go about things in her own way and try to solve her problems–she wasn’t waiting for a hero.
I liked the abundance of creatures in the book and how they blended into the modern world.
I did think there was an over-abundance of beautiful/handsome characters in the book, but hey, that’s alright with me! *wipes up drool*
Overall I found this book to be a fun, entertaining read and I look forward to continuing the series!
