Vengeance Be Mine by Louisa Lo

Book Description
Megan is a typical university student trying to figure out her place in the world, except instead of hoping to pass the bar or get into med school, she’s studying to become a licensed vengeance demon.
Nineteen-year-old Megan Aequitas is the only vengeance demon and trickster hybrid ever born. In a world where vengeance demons are respectable, rule-obsessed guardians of the Cosmic Balance, and tricksters are playful, happy-go-lucky perpetrators of chaos, being half and half is, well, tricky.

Determined to prove herself worthy of her vengeance blood, Megan enrolls in University of Demonic Studies’ prestigious co-op program. Wreaking karmic revenge on wrongdoers from cheaters to crooks sounds fun and simple, if it weren’t for the unsuspecting human roommate, Megan’s flamboyant trickster half-brothers, a changeling-raised fellow outcast, and a trio of evil wannabes. Then one assignment turns deadly when Megan discovers a plot to unleash an ancient force so authoritarian, most creatures would be deemed too unworthy to exist.

After a lifetime of being embarrassed by her trickster tendencies and striving to fit in vengeance society, Megan now has to learn to embrace both of her worlds if she wants to save them.

My Review
Meg is half vengeance demon and half trickster. That has caused her a lot of grief and discrimination among the demon community. Even her own extended family have made her feel as though she is inferior. But Meg is determined to get through vengeance university and begin her career. She hits a lot of bumps along the way and the worst of which is her half sister’s kidnapping. Now Meg has to save her sister and manage to not get herself killed.
I really enjoyed this book! I wasn’t sure what to expect since I had never heard of this author, but this story was exciting and engaging! I liked Meg and Esme. Her journey through the story was sad at times, infuriating at others, and happy at times. I was pleasantly surprised by the pace and originality of the story. It was fun to read. I give Vengeance is Mine 4 stars and definitely recommend this book!

About the Author
