Review: Keri Lake - Soul Avenged

Sons of Wrath:
Book 1:
Soul Avenged: Ayden and Kane Walker
Soul Avenged (Sons of Wrath, #1) 
Purchase on Amazon: Keri Lake - Soul Avenged (Sons of Wrath, #1)
Passion is blind in vengeance and love ...
Ayden’s suburban home was invaded by a pack of Lycans.
The brutal attack is the only memory she carries of her former life.
Now, one motive burns in her soul:
The Sons of Wrath—a brood of vengeance-dealing warrior demons—band with Ayden to hunt the Lycans on Detroit’s most deadly feeding grounds.
Kane Walker should’ve been her easiest kill.
Unfortunately, the newly bitten Lycan has something she wants—clues that may finally lay her past to rest. To reach them, she must be willing to submit to the sensual pleasures awakened by his touch.
Time is running out.
In seven days, Kane will become what Ayden despises most. She can halt his transformation but the antidote requires the ultimate sacrifice. As the beast takes hold, Kane becomes more of a threat.
Ayden must choose between her lust for revenge, or surrender to her enemy and discover a horrible truth.
Sons of Wrath:
Never gamble with vengeance
This was such a great take on werewolves, and the havoc they wreak on the families of Detroit. Ayden’s family was one of those families, except she cannot remember any of it. In this world the Lycan’s are the bad guys and what Ayden is (an Alexi) are the goodish guys, kinda. In this world the lines between good and evil are blurred. Are all Lycans bad? Are the Alexi, good? The Wrath brothers are the good or evil? I like that the lined are blurred and what you think you know, you may not actually know. It keeps things interesting. This book was both interesting and entertaining.
There a lot of different characters in this book, with Ayden as our heroine. She is a total bad a$$, training to feel nothing and remembers nothing before her attack, this makes her a more efficient killer.  She seeks only vengeance for her death.  Ayden doesn’t think that she cares that she cannot remember anything beyond avenging her own murder, until she does. That’s where Kane comes in. He’s just an innocent victim, bitten and left suffering, when Ayden found him. With one touch to Kane, she sees something, her past, or is it hers? Confusion reigns but she feels compelled to figure it out, so she takes the new Lycan to the Wrath bros estate.
Throughout the book, Ayden evolves, she becomes more than a hate filled female. She learns that not every Lycan is a killing machine, she learns that maybe there is something to remembering. Because of Kane, she realizes that there is more than just killing Lycan after Lycan. I like Aydens growth and how she softens throughout the book, but never loses her bad a$$ness. Kane is easy to love, throughout the entire book. He is resigned to his fate, but that does not make him a pushover. He realizes he is going to die and by Ayden’s hand, but more then he wants to live he doesn’t want to become a mindless killer. Little by little he shows Ayden humanity at its best and as she learns their feelings grow, but time is running out.
Throughout the entire book we are kept entertained, there is tons of action from the first few pages until the very end. The concept alone is enough to keep you reading. It’s a great spin on an old theme. The Alexi is a new twist to the Lycan tale. On top of the story all of the characters are enjoyable and you want to learn more about them. The Wrath brothers being some of the most interesting; each brother has his own personality and strengths and weaknesses. I enjoyed each and every one of them. I am looking forward to reading more about the Wrath brothers and their futures. I am also looking forward to more of Ayden and Kane, because something tells me, they are not going anywhere and we will continue seeing them in future books. I know I will be continuing with this series.
