This book is well-reviewed, so I will let you read the blurb to find out what you’re getting into while reading this. I read this at night when I would crawl into bed, not yet tired but eager to get in some reading that wasn’t an ARC. Lee had me at boarding school, but then you add in the history of witches and an inclusive cast, and I knew I was going to enjoy reading it.
I sometimes questioned if I liked Felicity as a character because she is incredibly unstable. You are kept unsure as to if you can trust what she’s saying and thinking. But enter Ellis, and despite all the fangirling from the other girls in the house, she gave off a big warning sign. Putting her together with Felicity is brilliant. Add in the incredibly vivid setting, making this highly atmospheric, and you’ve got an impressive combination for a book that begs the reader to keep reading well after the lights are out.
A Lesson in Vengeance is available on Amazon for $10.99.
About the Book:
The history of Dalloway School lives in the bones it was built on. Five violent deaths in the first ten years of its existence. Sometimes you can still smell the blood on the air.
It wasn’t until Felicity enrolled that she fell in love with the dark. And now she’s back to finish her senior year after the tragic death of her girlfriend. She even has her old room in Godwin House, the exclusive dormitory rumored to be haunted by the spirits of the five Dalloway students who died there—girls some say were witches.
It’s Ellis Haley’s first year at Dalloway. A prodigy novelist at seventeen, Ellis is eccentric and brilliant, and Felicity can’t shake the pull she feels to her. So when Ellis asks for help researching the Dalloway Five for her second book, Felicity can’t say no.
Dalloway’s occult lore is everywhere, and the new girl won’t let Felicity forget it. But when the past begins to invade on the present, Felicity needs to decide where she stands. The soil under her feet is bloody with Dalloway’s history. But so is the present. Is it Dalloway—or is it her?
