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...

M. Stratton continues to hold her title of “The Sickest of Sick” in Revenge, the sequel to Bender. I can honestly say her characters are my favorite mental cases to read. Their sickability (that’s my own word btw) goes above and beyond the typical “mental illness” of most other characters out there. There is an invisible line, generally speaking, that you just don’t cross. Not only do her characters cross it, they jump all over it and quite possibly make someone bleed onto it.
What a manipulative, sneaky jerk. Nutter truly lives up to his name once again. What more would you expect from a guy named Nutter? 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.
Revenge continues 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. With his Kitten by his side, there is no telling what he will do next.
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 giving the current story the necessary continuity.
I highly recommend all of M. Stratton’s books, but I think her Bender series may be my favorite. If you are looking for a good read full of excitement, twists, and gore, check out this series. You won’t be disappointed.
