Review: Vengeance by Megan Miranda


May Contain Spoilers


Wow – I enjoyed Vengeance more than Fracture, and that’s saying a lot, because I REALLY REALLY liked Fracture!  In this follow-up, the story is narrated by Decker, and boy, oh boy, is he having some issues!  Suffering from the trauma of pulling his best friend out of Falcon Lake after she falls through the ice, he performed CPR on her while waiting for emergency personnel to arrive.  Delaney was under the water for 11 minutes, and while waiting for word on her prognosis, Decker wished desperately for her to live.  In those agonizing hours he waited for her to wake up, he would have traded anybody’s life for hers.  When bad things start happening to his friends, he starts to wonder if the lake really is cursed, and whether it is punishing him for taking Delaney away from it.
