Vengeance
by Megan Miranda

FRACTURE BOOK TWO

Falcon Lake wants vengeance. And so, it seems, does someone else... An intense, heart-rending psychological thriller to accompany the chilling and seductive Fracture.

When Decker drags his best friend Delaney’s lifeless body out of the frozen lake, he makes a deal: Anyone but her. Everyone but her. The lake releases her. It takes another...

All their friends blame Delaney for Carson’s death. But Decker knows the truth: Delaney is drawn to those who are dying, and she would have tried to help Carson.

Or so Decker believes until a body lies in front of him in a pool of water on his kitchen floor. Until he sees in Delaney’s eyes that she knew this would happen too – and she said nothing. Until he realises it isn’t the lake that is looking for revenge – Delaney is part of someone else’s plan.

This powerful and emotionally charged psychological thriller follows Megan Miranda’s stunning debut Fracture.

MEGAN'S FAVORITE QUOTES/SCENES
FROM VENGEANCE


Thank you for having me on your blog! Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Vengeance:

 “Then I remembered my words: Anyone but her. Everyone but her. Someone had been listening.” - Prologue

“Nobody touched Falcon Lake anymore. Not last winter, after Delaney fell through, and not in the spring that followed. Nobody sat on the pebbled shore, watching the sunrise together under a blanket. There were no boats out there now, even though it was summer. The lake was dead. Or the lake was alive, depending on whom you asked.” – page 8

“But the lie shook something free. The curse was born from it. From us. We gave it power, and now it lived.” – page 85

“She’d live in the stories, the warnings, that generation after generation would tell. Don’t touch Falcon Lake. It wants you. It wants.” –page 114

“’You hate running.’
‘Yeah,’ she said. She stood up and brushed off her pants. ‘But the only thing I think about when I’m running is how much I hate running.’
And I thought, You’re perfect.” –page 143

“Last year, death couldn’t touch us. It was a thing that existed in some other world. Some other universe. It happened when you were old. Or to people in the paper. On the news. I had summoned it here when I left her on the ice. It sunk its teeth in, getting comfortable, making itself at home. It slept in the center of that lake.” –page 284

And my favorite scene is the very last one of the book, but I can’t give that one away J
