    One thought on “Sweet Vengeance”

    1. The usual triad of Vampire, Shifter and Magic takes an interesting direction in Sweet Vengeance by Aliyah DalRae. Raven, second in command in a military faction of the vampires, has a past so dark and bloody, he’s hated by his own race. Jessica, a human, has had visions her entire life that always come true. One such vision has prepared her to someday find a naked man on her porch. When that day finally arrives her life and those of her friends will never be the same. Suddenly thrust into the [...]

    2. Check out this review, and many more, on my blog jessjesinghaus.wordpress5 out of 5 starsIf you pick up this book (seriously though, pick it up right now) be prepared to get completely sucked in! If it hadn't been for a flu bug knocking me on my proverbial backside for four whole days I would've been dead to the world for a whole other reason. Instead, I was forced to take a hiatus midway through this book. Talk about sucks-ville!Ms. Dalrae has woven a wonderful story. Her heroine, Jessica Sweet [...]

    3. Vampires, shifters, magic and suspense. This is my first book by the author and it won't be the last. It took me a while to read, but that was only because I've got so many things going on at the moment. I cannot wait to re-read this and I would definitely recommend this author.

    4. A Blood-Pumping Novel!Invoking vampire vernacular, Jessica Sweet, a twenty-something woman who has been plagued by visions foretelling her destiny since childhood, gets sucked into a supernatural world and falls in love with Raven, a vamp whose reputation of a bloody past torments him.I “stake” my claim that ‘Sweet Vengeance’ is not your granddaddy-o-Drac paranormal novel with a trope vamp as caped crusader, night-cruisin’ in a black, horse-drawn hackney coach, prone to hanging upside [...]

    5. Absolutely loved this story. Hot vampires, werewolves and evil sorcerers with Jessica Sweet right in the midst of all of it. I loved Jessica who started out as somewhat lonely and vulnerable but watch out when someone threatens someone she cares about. I think that there is much more story to tell and can't wait the read the second installment.

    6. Jessica Sweet thought she was just an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life. A life with visions of the future, that is. She goes about her normal country life in Fallen Cross, Ohio until one of her visions comes true and sends a hurt, bleeding man unconscious on her doorstep. She had no idea that that man was a vampire and would become the love of her life. Now, before you go “Oh, it’s one of those stories” I have to tell you that this is not your average vampire meets girl story. There [...]

    7. Sigh. What a delightful read. The relationship between Jessica and Raven is wonderful, full of ups and downs, but finally landing up. The storyline is excellent, the characters fully developed. Yeah, excellent, with some surprises along the way. Malcolm Harrier Patrick and Maggie (that one I didn't see coming).And how could I forget that awesome cover.

    8. What an interesting take on vampires, shifters and sorcerer's. Mrs. DalRae's story of one girl's discovery of this mythical world is fascinating and imaginative. The characters are a mixture of realism and fantasy, well composed and believable driving, the story forward at every turn. Jessica Sweet is the main character of the story and it is through her perspective we see most of the story unfold, however the point of view is often changed throughout the story to third person, but Mrs. DalRae h [...]

    9. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hal-le-lu-jah! Sweet Jesus. I mean Sweet Jessica. I mean Jessica Sweet. Let me reboot. Sweet Vengeance written by Aliya DalRae is the pièce de résistance. The chef-d’oeuvre. The tour de force. Translation: a damn good book about vamps, werewolves and shifters.This book is FUNNY. Stop the pressrely she needs another reboot. We all know vampires are pompous egomaniacs with flawless skin and sexy European accents who know more about eyeliners than one-liners. Reboot. Byt [...]

    10. This is my first read of this Author, Aliya DalRae but it won't be my last. I quickly found myself immersed in a believable fantasy that had me falling in love with the characters. I genuinely did not want to stop reading, I longed to find out what would become of Jessica Sweet and the vampire she meets. Filled with suspense, adventure, fear and character so real you forget they are fictional, I'm excited for the next story in the trilogy!

    11. Anything Paranormal always draws me in, add Romance to it and you have a recipe that is going to draw the reader into the book with you. You felt like you were right there in the story with the characters and that is what Aliya DalRae brought to this book. You can't put it down, you need to read on to see what happens next. You have to know what happens next! Spellbinding, romance, drama, sex, humor, this book has it all and draws you in. You fall in love with Raven and Jessica and you can't wai [...]

    12. I was prepared to rate this book 5 stars no matter how I felt about the book, the Author being a relative and a first book. I had it in my mind that it would be good , but not the stuff that make" real "Authors good writers. Boy, was I wrong!!! Aliya is definitely a "real" Author!!!! I couldn't put it down! Not going to give any spoilers because I want this book to be read! It was totally awesome, and I cannot wait for the next book! Kudos, Aliya! You did it! As an avid reader I highly suggest y [...]

    13. 'Sweet Vengeance' has it all: jealousy, love, rage, angst, mystery and intrigue, and some breathtakingly hot moments without being gratuitous or needlessly graphic.The plot is as intriguing as it is complex, although as one is reading, it does seem straightforward. Such is DalRae's genius at weaving plot, sub-plot and backstory seamlessly together.The characters are believable and engaging, yet at the same time vivid and unique.And that "penny drop" moment at the end? Nothing prepared me for tha [...]

    14. I have rarely read a book as well written, easy to read, and exciting as this (perhaps never!) I would give it 10 stars out of 5 yes it's that good! Ms. DalRae expertly pulls you into a wonderful, but frightening world, and once there you'll never want to leave. I am an instant lifelong fan of hers now, and can't wait to continue this series. Saying that I most highly recommend this book is a severe understatement I just can't say enough good things about. There is one more thing I rarely ever r [...]

    15. Vampires, shifters, sorcerers, oh my! This book has it all. I am very impressed with Aliya's first book. It had me from the first page and I read it in one day. The story is captivating, funny, suspenseful, hot and sexy! It's the start of what will be an amazing trilogy. You won't be disappointed!

    16. If you like the paranormal, you will love Sweet Vengeance. Not my favorite kind of book, but in spite of that, I found it exciting. Couldn't put it down. Absolutely cannot wait for her second book of the trilogy. For a new author, Aliya Dalrae has hit the ball out of the park.

    17. When doing a review, I’m always hesitant to give away too much. I hate spoilers. But if you like modern vampire stories with an updated version of other supernatural or otherworldly creatures than this story is for you. The book has something often hard to find, a strong female lead. I like that in the tale. This story is worth your time.

    18. I'm typically not a big fan of paranormal, unless it happens to be written by Anne Rice. Sweet Vengeance, however, is my favorite kind of book - one you can't put it down. Vampires, wizards, shifters - I loved them all. At least I loved them in this book at any rate. Can't wait for the second book of the trilogy. Well done, Aliya DalRae. Kudos to you.

    19. Sweet Vengeance is a beautiful take on an overused concept. The vampire-based genre has begun to fade out, but as I read this novel I felt that it had been rejuvenated and I felt myself connecting to the younger me who only read vampire novels. But perhaps the best element of this novel was that it didn't just include vampires; instead, it included other supernatural beings to the mix while also enhancing the story line with romance.Aliya DalRae is a master of understanding characters and what m [...]

    20. What a fresh take for a storyline involving vampires and other supernatural, and I was more than a little surprised by the writing quality. In fact, when I started to do just a polite read through to see what the book was about, I couldn't stop reading! Every chapter held me captive. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next, especially when it came to the romance building between the two main characters. I couldn't help routing for Jessica, the spunky and oh so very real MC! Expect a lot mo [...]

    21. The story starts with Jessica Sweet coming in touch with a man that she has been dreaming of since she was a child. Events unfurl after that, introducing characters with varied depths and pasts. I enjoyed how each character was portrayed. I enjoyed the male protagonist, Raven and his sordid past. Even the villain, Fuhrman had an excellently developed past and character. None of the characters are black and white. They are all shades of grey, leaving the reader conflicted as to who to lend their [...]

    22. This is my first paranormal romance, so I'm not sure how to compare this debut novel to others of its type. The author does a good job of introducing us to the creatures that populate this world and leaves a mystery at the end, a must for a trilogy! :) Her description of amazing vampire sex should satisfy devotees of the genre. The vampire's past, however, bothered me. Would a sensible, brave, contemporary woman forgive him for that?

    23. I really enjoyed this new author's first book of her first trilogy! The reading of the story made me want to turn the next page, and the style of her writing is captivating! I am looking forward to the next two books to complete the journey. Aliya DalRae has a real talent for storytelling, and is on her way to great success!

    24. WOW! Author Aliyah DalRae hit it out of the park on her very first book. Grabbed me from page one. This is an awesome start to a three book series. Jessica and Raven will captivate you just like they did each other. It is truly amazing. Read it in one day. I am looking forward to the other two books coming in the series to answer some of my questions particular, what is with THAT cat????

    25. This book just kept getting better and better! The ending was satisfying, but left plenty of clues about the next installment. I'm ready for the next book now! I won this book in a giveaway.

    26. I read this book in less than 24 hours! I'm super excited to see where this story goes- the potential is endless. Needless to say Aliya better be writing the 2nd book because I cant wait lol. =D

    27. Thoroughly Enjoyable The first installment of the “Sweet” trilogy is entertaining cover to cover. For paranormal fans, the unique mixture of romance, supernatural, humor, thriller, and action will keep you engaged. For non-paranormal fans, there is plenty to like from all the attributes just mentioned.The spunky main character found herself in a situation part circumstantial and part self-induced by forces she was unable to control. You soon begin rooting for her and admiring her courage. Th [...]

    28. Sweet Vengeance is a well-constructed world of vampires, werewolves and sorcerers living among us humans in a typical American town.Good and evil are more subtly expressed than in most of the paranormal fiction I’ve read (admittedly not a whole lot!). There are quite a few reasons to hate the good guy and I found myself sympathizing with the bad guy, until the final chapters of this novel anyway.Jessica Sweet is incredibly open to this supernatural world and her ‘take it as it comes’ attit [...]

    29. Mixed FeelingsDespite the 4 stars, I have serious misgivings about this book. The author has chosen to give the hero, Raven, such a dubious past that it is difficult to overcome as a reader. For me, the paranormal genre justifies the author's choice. It also clearly separates fantasy from reality. But, readers who are sensitive to sexual crimes & acts of violence need to be forewarned. The heroine, Jessica, really brings the characters and story together making for a riveting read. Even thou [...]

    30. Wow! What an engrossing, fun book! From start to finish, I couldn't wait to find out more about the vampires, werewolves, the Legion, the Sorcerers, King Cat, and so much more! Aliya DalRae has created a fantastic paranormal series that goes way beyond your typical "hot vampire" story. It's full of intrigue and action, and pulls you along with every chapter. I do admit I had to get used to the alternating pov in each chapter, but once I did, it was great. Do yourself a favor and read this book! [...]
