Mini Review: The Pawn by Skye Warren

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

This series has a lot of potential. I love a good revenge story. Especially one full of violence. Gabriel, however, is kind of a pathetic villain in this story. And Avery tries so hard to be a strong character, but she falls flat. I feel like the gravity of everything that happened in this book, and all the romanticizing she did will force her to face the situation and turn almost assassin like, and she will have her revenge. I hope. Because, I love a good revenge story. I want it so bad.

There were a lot of laughable moments in this book, that were so unlike Skye Warren, that I was confused. Normally her writing makes me uncomfortable. She is extremely, extremely graphic in her sex scenes, so there is that warning. I have had to put a few of her books down mid sentence because I was just like, no. This is not happening. But hearing an “innocent” character describe sexual encounters as “stuff” was just funny to me.
