Vengeance Bound

by Justina Ireland
Release date: 2nd April, 2013Vengeance Bound
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers
Pages: 320 (hardcover edition)
Summary from Goodreads:

The Goddess Test meets Dexter in an edgy, compelling debut about one teen’s quest for revenge… no matter how far it takes her.

Cory Graff is not alone in her head. Bound to a deal of desperation made when she was a child, Cory’s mind houses the Furies—the hawk and the serpent—lingering always, waiting for her to satisfy their bloodlust. After escaping the asylum where she was trapped for years, Cory knows how to keep the Furies quiet. By day, she lives a normal life, but by night, she tracks down targets the Furies send her way. And she brings down Justice upon them.

Cory’s perfected her system of survival, but when she meets a mysterious boy named Niko at her new school, she can’t figure out how she feels about him. For the first time, the Furies are quiet in her head around a guy. But does this mean that Cory’s finally found someone who she can trust, or are there greater factors at work? As Cory’s mind becomes a battlefield, with the Furies fighting for control, Cory will have to put everything on the line to hold on to what she’s worked so hard to build.

The Goddess Test meets Dexter

When I first read my tagline I was like: “What? Does that even make sense?” If you didn’t know, publishers tend to write taglines on their own sometimes, since authors are known to be terrible at marketing. So when I first read it I was kind of thrown for a loop. But that was mostly because I hadn’t read The Goddess Test. Once I looked it up I had a total “A-ha!” moment.
Because it describes my book perfectly.
Vengeance Bound is very much like Dexter, only my main character is motivated by the Furies living in her head and not an innate need to kill. Like Dexter, Amelie lives in two different worlds: the life of a normal teenager by day and a killing machine by night. But unlike Dexter, Amelie isn’t happy with her life. She longs to have her own thoughts and dreams, and not just to continue on as an agent of the Furies.
The Goddess Test reference comes in due to the Greek mythology, although I don’t think my book has as much romance in it. Still, it does have a smidge.
Meh. I think you’ll like it.
