Measures of Vengeance is a work of fiction in the urban fantasy and adventure subgenres, and it serves as the second installment in the Agents of Karma series. It is aimed at young adult readers and was penned by Kelly L. Marsh. Continuing the adventures of Pepper Li Bell, this book finds Pepper planning a daring attempt to rescue her father from the clutches of the Syndicate and their leader Vlad Dracula. But a prophecy warning of destruction puts Pepper on the run as she and the mysterious Agent are hunted by Vlad and the Syndicate. With the fate of the world at stake, Pepper’s struggle for survival builds to an impossible choice.
Sequels are a tricky business, with the often impossible task of building on the groundwork done by their forerunner whilst adding enough ideas and narrative to stand on their own as a satisfying story. Kelly L. Marsh has risen to the challenge wonderfully with this novel that raises the stakes for protagonist Pepper Li Bell expertly and finds new ways to push her to the limit. Pepper’s growth throughout the story is a delight to watch as her well-realized characterization develops constantly in response to the narrative in a way that is consistently satisfying to read. Measures of Vengeance continues to balance the suspenseful intrigue, exciting world-building, and edge-of-your-seat action that made the original such a treat whilst narrating a complete tale that makes it engaging as a story in its own right.
