“Soul Avenged is an impeccable start to the Sons of Wrath series. Ms. Lake’s world of evil Lycans, sexy demons, twisted villain and a kick ass heroine had me turn the pages nonstop.” ~Under the Covers

I am a big fan of Kate Beckinsale in The Underworld and when I saw the cover of this book, I instantly thought the heroine is sure to be just as kick ass. I know it’s a lame reason to pick up a book but hey, I was right.

Ayden is not the typical damsel in distress.  In fact, she is quite the opposite. It may be for vengeance or duty to save human lives from the big bad wolves but at this time, her main goal is to Kill Them All.  Rightly so, if you find out what happened to her past.  And this pretty much starts the story off.  Ayden finds a newly bitten human and was instantly fascinated with him.  There’s really more to that story but I don’t want to spoil it for you.  Needless to say, the human she found was Kane Walker, top notch at Detroit General Children’s Cancer institute.  I have to admit, I thought I was going to be disappointed with Kane.  He seemed so human, fragile and he just
got his ass whooped all over the place.  I never thought Ms. Lake would pull him out of that character.  He actually turned out to be one very powerful alpha male.  You will be amazed with the things he did to prove that point.

Now, as far as the Sons of Wrath, they are the demons who are teamed up with Ayden in her escapade to wipe out the Lycans.  Technically they are hired help but really their motives are just the same.  They are the ones that intrigued me the most.  They remind me of the J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brothers.  Don’t get me wrong, this book is nothing like BDB but the Sons of Wrath share the same characteristics as the brothers.  They are big as football players, very strong, with
powers, sexy and you can tell off the bat that they each have dark sides.  Their interactions with each other include fights, annoyance, funny banters and they are loyal to the bone.

I love, love this book!  I thought the world building was exceptionally good and the characters were easy to connect with.  I have to warn you though; this book is full of action but has a good
amount of bloody scenes that’s not meant for the faint of heart.  The lycans are not your typical wolves.  Ms. Lake bent the rules and added her own twists to these beasts.  But I promise you that it is intriguing, engaging and even leave you teary eyed once or twice.

Soul Avenged is an impeccable start to the Sons of Wrath series. Ms. Lake’s world of evil Lycans, sexy demons, twisted villain and a kick ass heroine had me turn the pages nonstop.

If you like Kat from Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress Series, Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series and the J. R. Ward’s BDB series, you will enjoy the Son’s of Wrath.

About Keri Lake

Keri Lake is a married mother of two. She writes fiction in the genres of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. A graduate of Michigan State University (go green!), Keri holds 2 degrees in science but would gladly trade them both to pursue her true passion for writing. She's a flash fiction addict and a sucker for sexy men with wings.

When she isn’t toiling away on plots and protagonists, she enjoys reading, music and travel. If she could create mystical powers for herself, she’d have the ability to flash to anywhere in the world. And if she could flash to anywhere in the world at this very moment, she’d be staring at the ocean from her adirondack chair on the shores of North Carolina.

Go ahead and friend me, I love meeting new readers and talking books

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
