Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Sacred Vengeance is a work of fiction in the fantasy and action subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Evangaline Pierce. The book follows Alle Vengega, a woman with a happy family and an idyllic life whose world falls apart after visiting a haunted bridge. Following the loss of her husband, Alle finds that her daughter Lani has fallen victim to a demon attack, and only the man claiming to be her guardian angel has the answers to save Lani from the fate that awaits her. But her mysterious angel has secrets of his own, and the path to saving Lani will not only require her to trust him but also for Alle to understand and master who she truly is.

The themes at play in this tale of a mother struggling to overcome grief and save her daughter are biblical in scale, and there's a very interesting discussion about Alle’s true nature and interference with the celestial balance. I found author Evangaline Pierce’s descriptive writing to be wonderfully vivid and well-practiced, with the perfect level of detail found to bring her vision of the world to life, but also to allow just the right gaps for the reader’s own imagination to complete it. Every place that Alle visited was one I could imagine perfectly, and every person she met came to life on the page, thanks to the author’s wonderful prose. Overall, Sacred Vengeance is a powerful story about love and the acts of devotion that it drives us to do, and I recommend it highly to all readers.
