Review: Retribution by K.A. Salidas

*Cover art and Synopsis from Goodreads

Immortality is never guaranteed... 

As much as she dreams of a simpler existence, blood and violence are Mira’s way of life. Former gladiator turned freedom fighter; she’s carved a trail from New Haven to Caldera Grove and back, freeing her people, the vampires, from enslavement by the humans. 

But with victory almost within reach, a new and powerful enemy emerges. One who’ll be satisfied with nothing less than complete subjugation—or destruction—of all supernatural beings. 

With a secret army of his own, he’s more than prepared for any resistance Mira and her patchy rebel forces can offer, and demands their immediate surrender. 

Never one to back away from a fight, Mira believes she’s ready for anything. But with the battle lines drawn she will be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice. 

Kill or be killed.

~My Review~

Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

In Retribution we rejoin Mira and her battle for safety and peace. But things are far from peaceful. Even though New Haven and several of the other Iron Gate territories have signed a peace treaty, Lone Star haven't. Mira and the council are trying to establish peace with Lone Star but the Magistrate is very willing.

After a video meeting with Regent Marshal Ballard and Magistrate of Lone Star it seems that war is inevitable. Can war be avoided> Will Mira and her people ever be able to live in peace?

Retribution was a fantastic book. It's full of tension, action, dram and emotion. There are twists and turns that keep you wanting more and more. Retribution easily transported me back alongside Mira. I could picture the events as if i was there with her and her friends.

The POV in Retribution changes with each chapter but Ms. Salidas clearly states who's POV we are reading at the beginning of the chapter. The changing POV I think works really well, as it provides an insight into the other characters and how they feel and think about the events as they unfold. 

Ms. Salidas has incorporated so much energy and emotion into Retribution. Her hard work shows with each and every page. I'm so happy to have been able to read Retribution, and I'm really looking forward to the next chapter in Mira's story.

Retribution scores another mega 5* from me!!

If you haven't read this series I would really recommend starting at the very beginning I don't think you'll be disappointed.
