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!!!!!
Finally a great book.
If you’re looking for a fantasy novel with a unique story line, an independent female lead, and scenes that will make you laugh and cry, this is the book for you. I finished in just 3 days and I’m hooked.
OMG loved this book from start to finish. Couldn’t get enough of it. Read it all day until I was done. Can’t wait to read more.
