Retribution by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Harm no human...
A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.
Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised on one belief- Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. While protecting her adoptive race, she has spent her life eliminating the Dark-Hunters and training for the day when she meets the man who killed her family: Jess Brady.
A gun in the hand is worth two in the holster...
Jess has been charged with finding and terminating the creature who’s assassinating Dark-Hunters. The last thing he expects to find is a human face behind the killings, but when that face bears a striking resemblance to the one who murdered him centuries ago, he knows something evil is going on. He also knows he’s not the one who killed her parents. But Abigail refuses to believe the truth and is determined to see him dead once and for all.
Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, they must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they’ve sworn to protect.
I liked this instalment of the Dark-Hunter series. Jess was a sweetie and Abby was misguided but likeable. This book was more about the action then the love story which was a nice change. The story was complex but not to hard to follow. We were introduced to a new bad guy and new friends and all in al it was one of the best books in this series so far. The theme of this one was getting over your past and learning your truth can be subjective and subjugated, it was also about history repeating its self. I suppose it was inevitable that the story about a gun slinger from the wild west would also be about one tribe of Native American people too. I have to say I found this a fascinating slant and hope we get another book to ad to what we learned in this one.
