Book Review: Enchanted Revenge by Theresa M. Jones

I received this free book by the author in exchange for an honest review. 

Goodreads Summary: When seventeen year old Lily finds her parents brutally murdered, leaving her broken and alone, she is determined to bring justice to the fairies responsible. 
Her quest leads her to infiltrate The Empyrean, the land of the Fae where terrifying creatures lurk in every shadow. But with a political rebellion mounting, bloody battles and foreign enemies stand in her way. Alec, a mysterious fairy keeping his own secrets, gradually becomes her guide and dear friend in the unfamiliar world, and restores her faith in love.
Disturbing secrets about her parent’s true identity are revealed, causing her to be more involved with the devastating fairy war than she can afford. Her vengeful mission becomes compromised and her growing romance with Alec wavers. 
She must conquer her fear of the unknown, ignore her grief, and overcome her growing list of enemies if she is to succeed in avenging her parents’ death. Or ever make it out alive. 
Enchanted Revenge appeals to fans of Julie Kagawa and Jennifer L. Armentrout.

This is a full length novel, and is the first in the four-book Empyrean Chronicles. It is a YOUNG ADULT urban fantasy, and has some mild sensuality and language.

When I was contacted to read and review Enchanted Revenge I knew by the synopsis that I was going to enjoy reading it. The story starts off with Lilly coming home and finds that her parents are murdered. She is a mess because of the how they were killed but even more confused as to why would someone want to kill her parents. In comes Alec who is a fairy and takes Lilly under his wings (lol pun intended) to go on this adventure to see just what Lilly is and see what is really happening.

I loved the relationship between Lilly and Alec. I like that they both have a past that they wished never happen and it affects them hard but it makes them closer. The way the pair gets along is funny and adorable. It was not an insta love but it build and I love the author for doing that. I'm not a big fan of the "insta love phase".  I like the world that the author created and the description of the places were beautiful. I don't know why but while reading it I thought of the hobbit. Please don't judge me. The journey for them was also incredible. 

Honestly I have never divulged myself in this genre of books but I have to say that maybe I need to change my mind about it because I did like reading this story. The only thing that I have to say was that for me there were some parts that were dragged out a little bit but other than that it was great. This is the first book in 

Empyrean Chronicles series. Just the name itself makes you want to read the book.
