Today we have the blog tour for Keri Lake’s INTREPID. We are so excited to share this new release with you! Grab your copy today!
In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks.
Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness.
But that’s the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out.
It’s been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I’ve tasted retribution and crave more of it.
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free.
The plan is perfect, except for her. The one woman I’m forbidden to have, whose soothing touch settles my fractured mind. My angel of mercy sent to silence the voices. Yet, not even she can save me from the black void wherein my skeletons lie buried beneath the truth. Because in order to feed my thirst for revenge, I have to destroy the very thing that gives me purpose.
Tooth for a tooth, heart for a heart.
So, this is my first ever book by Keri Lake – though I didn’t know before was a New Adult genre – I rarely read NA books; this is a genre where there is the least chance of actually connecting with the characters and the decisions (usually immature!) that they end up making.
Why then, would I request to review this beauty? Well, it’s the fault of the synopsis of the book – I mean, just check it out – how does any self – respecting reader would never be able to ignore!
And I was pleasantly surprised; in fact I was flabbergasted – not only was the plot complex; the characters brilliantly deceptive; and the writing style phenomenal! It was such an exhilarating ride from start to finish!
Ty is a man on mission. This man has suffered a great loss; ends up building his whole life around vengeance! Sera is a girl who is trying really hard to leave the shackles of the life her father has tried to build for her (mostly, for himself!).
When Sera and Ty cross paths; there is an instant connection, an attraction strong enough that somehow that overrules their own logical and sensible thinking! What follows is a plot that not only steals your heart, but also has you biting your nails with complex twists and turns; and that doesn’t let you go till the end arrives on the book.
There are a whole lot of revelations, decisions that the characters made which had me shaking my damn head (like I said before; there is a reason why I do not connect with NA characters!) yet I still couldn’t stop reading because the writing style of the book is phenomenal – it flows fluidly, intersecting each and every twist with precison that you don’t have time to wonder where the story would go from there!
Keri Lake is a new to me author – and I am really hoping to read more of book; I just hope that the rest of her books are about adults; rather than teens who are only just learning how to be adults now!
