Evangeline is a kick ass character. She's strong, and a bit scary, which I like. One thing I didn't really care for was that she felt something was wrong with the orders she was given from the beginning, but she followed them anyway. I guess I'd never make a good soldier, I have a hard time blindly following orders myself. She was completely devastated when her guardian dies, but she knows something is going on, and she's set on figuring everything out.

Some parts in the story were a bit slow, but it's to build the story, so I understood. Evangeline eventually learns the information that she needs from an unlikely source, a demon. This is were things start getting interesting. Evangeline ends up making a trip, she'll do whatever she has to to keep Marcellus from putting his plan into action.

Retribution is a great beginning to a series. The ending is a bit of a cliff hanger, but that's expected from a series. I feel like this is going to be a fun series to read. I would recommend Retribution if you are into Nephilim, strong female characters, and demons and angels.


About the Author

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognise that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practise given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes... I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It's a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves - it works wonderfully...

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands - I shall forever remain crosseyed.
