Sometimes, the demons you fight inside are real.
Sara Grey’s world shattered ten years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now at seventeen, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara’s own very powerful gift.
In her quest for answers about her father’s death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara’s world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it’s the last thing she wants.
Sara’s life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The first book in Karen Lynch’s YA series introduces us to Sara Grey, a headstrong high-schooler with a secret supernatural life: her best friend’s a troll, six-inch imps infest her bedroom walls, and a murderous vampire is obsessed with her. Smart, eerie, and darkly fun, Relentless combines an action-horror plot with a coming-of-age arc to create a gothic fairy tale set in the modern adolescent world. Lynch pulls off this genre mashup impressively—it’s a thrilling read.
I loved this book sooo much!! I found myself thrown into the plot with all the characters, and it was like a separate awesome world away from my hectic life right now. Would definitely recommend this book! I found my self having to read it whenever I could. Definitely going to read the whole series!!
I first posted this comment after I read the first book, and I am now on the fourth. The next three books are even better than the first one!! I have read through the comments and noticed that the people who don’t really like this book are upset that there is no romance between Sara and Nikolas. I’m not going to spoil the other books but I will say that in the second book and beyond is where the romance is. Definitely recommend the series!!!!!
