Book Description: Six months ago, Lucy Donovanthought that being killed by a drunk driver was the worst thing that couldhappen to her.
She was wrong.
Now, the person she loves most has been ripped away from her, soul heldhostage, and Lucy has vowed to stop at nothing to get it back.
Part of a new team with enhanced powers, Lucy and her friends begin a quest toavenge the souls that have been stolen. Enemies of the Patronus have unitedhowever, and a spy from within the Patronus realm is feeding the enemy theirevery move.
When a mission goes horribly wrong, Lucy’s soul becomes compromised. It willtake a strength she didn’t know was within her to escape the darkness, returnto the light and avenge the soul she loves.
My thoughts: Avenge picks up the story of Lucy. She died and became a Patronus. She saves souls that werewolves and vampires take, so they can continue on their journey to heaven.
This book is full of action. Lucy works on a team that all save souls as they seek for the lost soul of Lucy's sister. She is driven, saving her sister is her priority.
Lucy has a romantic interest, Max. He is the other half of her soul. That's a very interesting concept and fun to learn about what it entails. There are moments that include sexual content.
This book is easy to follow. I love that she includes people from history as characters in her book. It's fun to see them interact as she would imagine that their character would. This is a fun book to read. I would recommend to 17+ due to mature content.

About Sarah: I started my obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. I would read any fiction book I could get my hands on. I knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding me from TV or music, my mom would take away my books as punishment (The Horror!). My love of all things paranormal was inspired by my good friend Laurie, who convinced me that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, I gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized she was right, and the rest was history.
I grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with my degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as I do for several years. I will always be a proud member of the Steelers Nation, but I couldn’t take the cold and moved my frozen tush to Florida where I now live with my family and two cats. You will find me now with my trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!
When I'm not writing or reading, I am probably partaking in my favorite vice: sunbathing. I know it's wrong, but I love the feeling on the hot sun on my skin and could lay in it for hours. I do live in Florida for a reason!
I also enjoy traveling, baking, movies, and playing with my adorable fur babies.

Book Description: Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy’s mortal life.
Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don’t want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can’t bear to lose.
Further complicating her life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued.
Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy’s death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.
