Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

This was probably one of my favorite books of 2016. It was dark, full of action and features one of the most independent and badass heroines. I love it. It’s the perfect read if you’re looking for a straight revenge story. And that cover is freaking awesome, too. You can read my full review HERE.

Revenge is worth its weight in gold.

When her father is murdered for a journal revealing the location of a hidden gold mine, eighteen-year-old Kate Thompson disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers—and justice. What she finds are untrustworthy strangers, endless dust and heat, and a surprising band of allies, among them a young Apache girl and a pair of stubborn brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, a startling truth becomes clear: some men will stop at nothing to get their hands on gold, and Kate’s quest for revenge may prove fatal.
