The Global War ended, and all living things post-apocalypse assumed three genetic identities named alpha, beta, and gamma. The cleaners, a special force, deemed one of these species as unfit and decided to wipe them out. Unfortunately, J’s sisters, Meryl and Paige, were murdered by a group of cleaners led by Veronica. J intended to take her pound of flesh, so she schemed her way aboard their ship, where she met face to face with their captain, Gareth. The captain was her childhood friend and crush, who also gave the command that took her sisters’ lives. Can she cross the line between familial loyalty and a burning romantic desire to exact her revenge? Find out how this face-off pans out in The Right to Revenge by Veronica North.

The Right to Revenge by Veronica North was a captivating and fast-paced book set in the future. This dystopian story is suitable for young adults over seventeen years. It explored betrayal, manipulation, deception, abuse, passion, and more. However, people who get triggered by abuse may not wish to read this book because it is intense. I loved the sound plot and action-packed storyline, which was unpredictable and kept me anticipating. The characters were also outstanding, from the protagonists to the worst villain. It shocked me to discover that I had the most respect for Adam, Hideki, and Linda because the trio used their heads and figured Lynx out. I was exhausted seeing Gareth continuously fall into Lynx’s trap and how J kept falling for Falcon’s betrayal. Veronica applied a simple writing style that helped the dialogue flow. Please write more.

The Right to Revenge: A Post-Apocalyptic Action Adventure is a work of fiction in the science fiction and adventure subgenres which was penned by author Veronica North. The work is best suited to the mature teen and adult reading audiences owing to some explicit content including moderate scenes of a ‘steamy’ sexual nature and violence appropriate to the context. Set in a futuristic world long after a global war has changed the face of our planet, protagonist J lives in a world where three genetic species of humans exist. J doesn’t believe in the new (and sometimes genocidal) laws concerning parts of humanity and she wants her revenge until Captain Gareth Falcon stands in her way.

Author Veronica North delivers a compelling and action-packed take on dystopian science fiction that also has plenty of sensual moments, highly emotive drama, and clever conceptual content to keep readers from all sorts of different backgrounds happy. Whichever part of the myriad of strong influences draws you in, what you’ll find in this novel is a perfectly balanced blend of clever plot twists, interesting exposition, and fascinating character arcs. One thing I especially admired about the work was that every single character, even the primary villain, is shaped realistically with well thought out motivations and strong reasoning for being on their side of the conflict. This makes for some complex and challenging moments for J and the choices she has to make, which makes The Right to Revenge one of those books that grips you with its adventure but also sinks deep into your heart.

The Right To Revenge is the latest science fiction novel from Veronica North, aimed at mature readers. This was a brilliant read that I hope will be the first installment in a long series as the world that the author has built is well designed and very exciting. Set in a vision of Earth’s future in which humans have evolved in three separate directions, one of the new variants faces the threat of extinction after being mercilessly hunted by the cleaners. This is an engaging and dynamic story that speculates on our future whilst laying out an emotionally devastating parable about the issues of racism and social inequality that plague our world right now.

The lead character J suffers an incredible loss at the start of the novel which sets her on a path for revenge against the people who have hurt her – in particular Captain Falcon who gave the order that led to the deaths of so many. Whilst the action in The Right To Revenge is hectic and breathtaking in terms of its pacing and scope, the core conflict of the book comes from the turmoil that J feels about killing someone. In particular, when the complexity of the issue keeps expanding and the line of responsibility for her pain becomes murkier and murkier. Veronica North’s descriptive writing and characterization are excellent, but the making of this novel is the realistic discussion of responsibility that lies underneath the action and the drama. This is a high-stakes action thriller set in a beautifully considered speculative world, and the questions that it explores could not be more timely.

The Right to Revenge: A Post-Apocalyptic Action Adventure is the first novel in the Right V series by Veronica North. Fueled by anger and the need to avenge the death of her sisters Meryl and Paige, J only lived for this purpose. Being a part of the rebellion was not easy, and J was prepared for the pain. Captain Gareth Falcon had ordered the deaths of her sister, so it only makes sense for her to kill the captain in retaliation. However, it wasn’t that easy, especially considering that Captain Falcon and J shared a past. Before she knew it, the lines were blurred, new information was revealed, and J was more confused than before. Her one task was to kill Falcon, but how could she kill him if he wasn’t the man who ordered Paige and Meryl’s deaths. If not him then who did it?

With action that will put even the Mission Impossible series to shame, The Right to Revenge had my attention from the moment the story opened. The blurb did no justice to the intensity of the story or how incredible it was. The world-building was fantastic, but the real driving force of the story was J and Falcon. The duo had a complicated relationship, but it was filled with passion. I was left wondering if they were simply friends, lovers, or far more than just that. Falcon was a complicated character, and I believe there are many more facets about him that author Veronica North will hopefully explore in the future. I got chills reading the fast-paced plot and enjoyed every second of it. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but this story has a lot more potential than your run-of-the-mill science fiction looking for revenge. Entertaining till the very last sentence!

The Right to Revenge is a space opera sci-fi novel written by Veronica North. In the far future, humanity has been divided into three species of genes: Gamma, Beta, and Alpha. Captain Gareth Falcon of the Milena, an interplanetary spaceship, is part of an elite group of cleaners, soldiers tasked with the extermination of people with the Alpha gene. Meanwhile, after witnessing the deaths of her sisters, J, a rare female Gamma, boards the Milena with the sole aim to kill Gareth. However, things don't go according to plan, and she finds herself used as bait to lure the notorious pirate, Captain Anton Lynx, who sells her to the Cybers. As tensions escalate, J joins the Resistance and finds herself unwittingly becoming a symbol of hope for the oppressed.

The Right to Revenge feels like a unique hybrid between the Star Wars and the Divergent franchises. Author Veronica North tells a captivating tale filled with action, romance, and political intrigue set in a distant future where humanity has mastered space travel yet finds itself plagued by the same ills that human civilization faces today. With a plot that navigates its way through numerous unexpected twists and turns, North's gripping story of revenge and revolution leaves nothing out as its tight plotting and fleshed-out characters keep you hooked until the end. J is a protagonist you'll find easy to root for, and her struggles and relationships make her an immensely relatable character. If you love action-packed space operas, The Right to Revenge is just the book for you.
