Ten years plotting.
Ten years of waiting.
Ten years of patience and planning.
Finally, he would have his revenge.
But--there is another side.
A dark side.
Revenge can cloud your judgement.
Revenge can take over your life.
Revenge can take away the one thing you really want.
After the murder of his partner, Mick, and watching his Stormy yanked from his grasp, all Nutter could think about was making Bender hurt. He wanted to show him more than the pain he lived with each and every second of the day, he wanted Bender to be nothing but pain.
Without Mick by his side, Nutter expected to feel alone, without purpose--but something wonderful happened, instead. He found his focus. He found his Kitten, the one woman who could match his intelligence and his appetite for killing. Together, they could rule the world. All they had to do was fulfill Nutter’s plan for revenge.
This is one killer of a story...
What a manipulative, sneaky bastard. Nutter truly lives up to his name once again in Revenge, by M. Stratton. I can’t get over just how sick and twisted he is and how Stratton continues to create new and disgusting ways to show just how revolting he is. I would suggest psychological help, but obviously, Nutter has already taken that route.
Continuing the story started in Bender, Stratton shows the reader just what our favorite nut bag (pun intended) has been up to, and what he is planning next when it comes to Stormy, whom he sees as “the one who got away.” Literally. Nutter has been locked up in a mental hospital for the last few years and we pick up right where he is being released.
One thing that drives me crazy about a sequel or series is when there has been a bit of time passing between each book’s release. I’m always worried that I will forget important parts of the story and not know what’s going on, resulting in my having to go back and re-read the previous book. Stratton does a great job of reminding the reader of what happened in the first book while not getting off track.
Revenge is very fast paced and while some things aren’t a huge surprise, there are plenty of things that are. The relationship between Nutter and his psychiatrist, Morgan. Morgan drives me a little bit crazy, which is ironic considering her occupation. For some reason, it drives me mad when someone calls someone his or her “lover.” I have no idea why, but she uses this phrase instead of a name and it makes me want to throat punch her. Their relationship vaguely reminds me of that of the Joker and Harley Quinn of the Batman Series.
Overall, this is a thrilling and exciting read. Stratton’s books never disappoint. Her books are all sick and disgusting in a good way. Each character is described in a way that makes them seem real, no matter how disturbing they are. I would recommend this book and series to anyone who likes a good psychological thriller and has a strong stomach.
