In Kim’s everyday middle school facade, she is faced with people who submit her to a life of torment and hatred on a daily basis. An alcoholic father and abusive classmate are a constant figure of hate in her life and have become malicious demons in her eyes. Every day brings new pain and things never seem to improve, until a new girl transfers to her school. This girl, Tansu, becomes a new ray of hope for Kim as they find something in each other they both lacked; friendship. For the first time in a long while, things are starting to look up. That is until she discovers there are real, blood-hungry demons lurking in the shadows. One such entity offers her a deal that would allow her to get revenge on the people that hurt her. These ever-present shadows entangle her in a web of darkness, which only seems to grow as new information surrounding her mother’s death and her father’s own dark past are revealed. Her resolve and morals are put to the test as she tries to uncover the truth and survive.
“I first discovered this book from the author’s YouTube channel some months ago and was quickly endeared to his enthusiastic presence and delivery in his videos. It was after seeing them I learned he’d written a book, promising blood, gore, action and so much more. I personally read mostly crime, thriller and murder mystery, but once I started to read I was quickly hooked. The author has a good summation of the narrative and where he wants the story to go. The lead characters I found easy to relate to and the various setting and subtext were awash with intrigue and suspense. I fell in love with the cast of characters, and their turmoil was palpable in part, due to the author’s graphic storytelling and colorful language. My fingers were mere stubs of their former selves, I just couldn’t wait to find out what happens next. I felt a maelstrom of emotions throughout and was sad to see it end. I can’t wait for a sequel and to see what else this talented writer has devised. There is even merchandise from the book, complete with characters designs, bios and other effects, which goes to show how much time and effort the author has put in. At vengeanceofficial.com there are heaps more to find including a soundtrack to the book. If you love anime, tragedy, and horror you’ll love Vengeance!”

About Chris Ulm
Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved to create. It started with standard pencil drawings and gradually expanded to digital art, writing song lyrics and poems, photography, and making videos for the internet. However, in all my time spent doodling and filming, I never once thought that I would write a book. Let alone a small series.
I’ve always been inspired by the video games I played and the anime I watched. Real life to me is boring, and I find escapism and delight in immersing myself into these other universes. I feel alive as I go on these adventures with the characters. People don’t understand how powerful these games and shows can be. They made me who I am today. A guy who wants to create as much as he can and leave something behind. Something that proves I was here, that I was somebody.
