Venge by Will Isenberg is a spellbinding thriller with a dystopian setting and a plot that stands out in its originality. Lemma is a death insurance broker in the black market and she is good at her work. Clients are guaranteed revenge should anyone hurt or kill them. But her dream is to be an assassin, yet her boss does not want to promote her. When she discovers that people are dying in bizarre ways, her curiosity is aroused and she also gets the opportunity to prove herself. She is asked to investigate the deaths but she has a problem in hand — Milligram, a neighbor for whom she works as a caretaker, helping him move around on crutches and attending to his other needs. How can she solve the crimes while protecting Milligram and keeping her secret job hidden from him?
A perfect read for young adult fans, Venge is furiously paced and it crackles with excitement. Lemma is an unusual character, a young woman with incredible sales skills. She is intelligent, and the fact that she yearns to be a detective and an assassin portrays the harsh and dangerous dystopian world she has grown up in. The world-building is excellently accomplished and while it is not a world that resembles ours in any way, Will Isenberg makes it feel real, writing locales that readers can easily imagine and characters that fit perfectly into that world. While the plot is clever and twisty, the element that grabbed my attention is the author’s ingenuity when it comes to humorous scenes and readers will adore the way the relationship between the female protagonist and her crippled client is written. Will Isenberg is a master entertainer with unique storytelling skills.
