Vengeance: Children of Faust is a work of fiction in the paranormal, horror and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Chris Ulm. The book is recommended for mature readers who do not mind sensitive subject matter, as it does contain explicit language usage, scenes of violence, sexual references, and themes of abuse. We focus on protagonist Kim, a middle schooler who has to deal with much more trauma than is fair for one so young. When she meets new friend Tansu, things begin to change, and then the real demons come out of the woodwork. When Kim is offered the chance of true and dark revenge on those who have hurt her, so begins a trial of morals and personal strength.
Author Chris Ulm has crafted a story that develops many levels and different plot threads as it progresses, offering a tightly-woven tale with mystery, intrigue, and genuine emotions fuelling the fire of the plot itself. One of the things which I found particularly fulfilling in this book was the author’s own emotional intelligence around the sensitive subject of abuse, which helps to characterize Kim and for readers to relate to her temptations and the decisions she makes within the plot. The plot points take us through a fast-paced world of twists and turns as the central mystery deepens, and I really liked the experience of learning and growing with the young protagonist. Overall, I would highly recommend Vengeance: Children of Faust for paranormal fiction fans who like their stories grounded in gritty realism.
