Review: VENERABLE by Laura B. Martinez

November 22, 2017

Venerable by Laura B. Martinez

Innocent. Confused. Curious.
She was a girl in the wrong place at the wrong time.
He saved her.
He took her from the hands of an animal just to throw her to the Monsters.
For the first time in his whole life, he wished he wasn't the worst of them all
Will the darkness extinguish Sebastian's only light?


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

That ending though?! I was not expecting that… AT. ALL!! In the end I’m left hurt, confused, and hoping that somehow this author can pull a happy ending out of her azz in the book(s) to come.

Sebastian was easy enough to figure out. He was a ‘monster’. A man who wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. A man who put down monsters such as himself. He was a killer. He was a hunter. And crazily enough, he ended up being a lover.

Kassandra was a little harder to understand. She was a bag of confusion, hiding things and holding secrets, making her a difficult character to get behind. But I think that was the point. Her secrets were the crux of this story. Her affiliation with Allan wasn’t a huge surprise, but his connection to Sebastian was. I’m literally discombobulated right now. I don’t know which side is up or down or left or right.

What I DO know is that I NEED book two, Vengeance, in my hands ASAP!! Until then, I don’t know what to do with myself. Laura B. Martinez is a new-to-me author and she’s definitely found a fan. She gave me an anti-hero to fall in love with, enough mystery and suspense to curb my wandering mind, and an ending that has me clamoring for more. If you like your romance dark, then you’re going to love this!
