Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-In this unique paranormal thriller, 17-year-old Amelie Ainsworth (alias "Corinne Graff") has had a traumatic life, including being orphaned and spending time in a mental asylum. Most of her teen years have been spent moving from place to place trying to create a sense of normalcy and to maintain her secret: she is linked to the bloodthirsty Furies from Greek mythology and is able to conjure them to hand down lethal judgments on murderers, rapists, and pedophiles. Amelie's ultimate goal is to track down her former doctor, who kept her heavily medicated and used her for experiments. Her hunt leads her to a town in Pennsylvania where she enrolls in high school and tries to blend in and be "normal." Here Amelie makes new friends and attracts the attention of handsome Niko, who suspects there is more to her than what she shows the world. As their relationship develops, Amelie finds that it gets harder to keep the Furies under control. Scenes of young love blossoming contrast with episodes in which the Furies slaughter killers who have evaded the law. The suspenseful explanation of how the powerful beings became linked to Amelie is revealed as she begins to understand how much her bargain with them has cost her. The language, violence, and sexual themes make this page-turner more appropriate for mature readers.-Sherry J. Mills, Hazelwood East High School, St. Louis, MOα(c) Copyright 2013.

Ireland, Justina. Vengeance Bound. Simon & Schuster, 2013. 320p. $17.99. 978-1-44244-462-1.



When she was twelve years old, Amelie Ainsworth thought she was going to die. She prayed for someone to save her, and the Furies answered, but in return she had to take Alecto’s place and accept a bond with Megaera and Tisiphone to help them carry out acts of vengeance. Now orphaned and seventeen years old, Amelie takes the alias Corey Graff, enrolls in a new high school, and plots her revenge against the psychiatrist who tried to cure her “multiple personality disorder” with debilitating experimental drugs. As she narrows in on his whereabouts, Corey meets Niko, a guy who quiets the Furies in her head and makes her wish for a life without death and hatred. Together they search for a way to separate Corey from the Furies before they fully overtake her body, soul, and mind.

The Furies’ angle in this paranormal romance is an original take on possession. What this novel suffers from is the large number of issues that plague Corey’s past: guilt over her cousin’s death; kidnapping, possession, institutionalization, and abuse; the deaths of her parents and grandmother; and her desire for revenge. All this background makes it difficult to connect with Corey or believe that she can overcome anything by the end of the novel. Vengeance Bound is not an essential addition to collections, though fans of Tera Lynn Childs’s Sweet Venom (Katherine Tegen, 2011/VOYA October 2011) and Aimeé Carter’s The Goddess Test (Harlequin Teen, 2011/VOYA June 2011) may enjoy this Greek spin.—Deena Viviani.

When vengeance is all you seek, will it ever be enough?

Five years ago, Amelie Ainsworth, now 16, was abducted by a very bad man.After he had abused her, Amelie was willing to do anything to escape or, betteryet, exact revenge. Her call for assistance brought Tisiphone and Megaera,two-thirds of the mythological Furies, who rescued her in exchange for herbecoming their third. Now they live in her mind and manifest when she bringsthe guilty to justice. After an unscrupulous psychiatrist destroys her life andher family, Amelie flees across the country, taking out men guilty of crimesagainst women and children with the help of her ever-strengthening companions.Settling in West County, Pa., she changes her name to Cory and tries to lead anormal life. But the Furies have plans for her, and she might not be able toescape, even with the help of hunky Niko. Ireland's debut wastes a promisingpremise in the myths-in-the-modern-world subgenre by peopling a turgid and attimes repetitive tale with stock characters and silly bad men. She plays fastand loose with the traditional motivations of the Furies and tosses in manyunrealistic plot twists.
