Price of Vengeance by Kurt D. Springs Giveaway & Review

Book Description for Price of Vengeance:

“Liam! What have you done?” Marcus demanded. “You know our teachings on revenge,”

Suddenly, irrationally angry, Liam straightened. “How can you defend him after what he did? To you, to Mom, to my birth parents, to everyone we cared about?”

With a howl of despair and emotional agony, Liam dashed forward, through the shade of his father, blindly running into the sewers.

What is the Price of Vengeance? One could understand why Liam was angry. He was orphaned at the age of two by a group of giant carnivorous insects called the chitin. Adopted by High Councilor Marcus and his wife, Lidia, Liam was raised with their older son, Randolf in New Olympia, the last remaining city on the planet Etrusci. As an adult, Liam becomes a soldier. After being cut off from the city, Liam finds that there is an alien intelligence behind the chitin. To defeat it, he must discover who he is and how to use his powers. Then, Liam discovers that a traitor, responsible for his birth parents’ deaths, had murdered his beloved foster parents. Will the price he has to pay in his quest for vengeance prove to be an even more unbeatable foe?

My Review:
This story has a lot of nice story lines that all meet at the end. I felt bad that Liam was orphaned, and had to live with foster parents. However I liked that he found out who was responsible for it and he wants to make them pay. Add in a great alien world created by the author, and a mysterious and a deadly person in power.  The writer blends them with military members. The end was good and I thought that it was a good fit for Liam. I am looking forward to the next installment. I hope there will be more mentions of Shakespeare, and his works. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
