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.

What a book!!!
It started a little slow for my personal taste, but became a serious addiction 1/3 way through. I love the dynamic of all the characters and I think Miss Lynch did a great job setting up certain situations that happened later in the book and will happen in the next book. I am having trouble waiting until December! I need it now!!!!!
This series had me hooked from this first book! Love the characters and the storyline never has any dull moments.
Giving this a 2.5 stars. What I wouldn’t give to have a strong female and male character to just go out and say what they are feeling. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE me some slow burn relationships but o m g. This story BARELY hinted even a lil romance between them and I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for some romance to be in this book...and there wasn’t.
I’m not sure if I’m gonna finish the series.
