They say with important events that change you, there will always be a before and after that time. For me, there will now always be “a before” I read This For That: Edge of Retaliation and “an after”. Bella Jewel, thank you for your writing doing that.
The plot of this book is: What would you do, for revenge?
Oh, who am I kidding?
You’re cruel. You’re heartless. You’re sick. You’re really damned twisted.
Do you know that?
Still doesn’t cut it.
Dear Fate…yeah, that’s the one.
What the actual hell?
What exactly did I do to deserve the life you paved for me?
Did I bother you so?
Was I awful?
Did I not pray enough?
You took my life into your hands, fate, and you twisted it.
You turned it into a broken mess, and you made it ugly.
You made me ugly.
A life for a life.
An eye for an eye.
That’s how it goes, right?
Her life. Now mine.
Someone is coming for me, but you already know that, don’t you fate?
Did you plan it?
Did you even try to tell them it wasn’t my fault?
That it was an accident?
That I didn’t mean for it to happen?
Or is this part of your sick and twisted plan?
I have one last question, fate, before you go…
Have you got a hero for me?
Because I’m going to need one.
Hold your hats everyone… something has happened! Something that rarely happens, even. There has officially been a shake up to my Top 5 list. Congratulations Bella Jewel, This for That is the current occupant of the #1 spot.
My heart was ripped right out from the start and never let up. I honestly feel my jaw was on the floor from beginning to end. This story could have truly been anxiety inducing but Bella was extremely smart in the way she broke it up. She created a truly captivating story that will continue to stay with me.
I was so incredibly taken with this book that I have told everyone I speak to about it. I still can’t believe it, and my best friend watched me completely transform telling her about it. Her advice is for me to read it again, and enjoy it. I have every intention of doing so right before the release of the sequel… which there better be after that cliffhanger!
