Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto

I will actually start this book during my lunch break today. I’m pretty excited about it because it’s a fantasy-steampunk Western. Like seriously, how cool does that sound? It’s also Modesto’s debut novel, so I’m interested in seeing how it turns out. I always love getting to read debuts because you never know when you’ll meet your new favorite author!

The two-bit town of Rogue City is a lawless place, full of dark magic and saloon brawls, monsters and six-shooters. But it’s perfect for seventeen-year-old Westie, the notorious adopted daughter of local inventor Nigel Butler.

Westie was only a child when she lost her arm and her family to cannibals on the wagon trail. Nine years later, Westie may seem fearsome with her foul-mouthed tough exterior and the powerful mechanical arm built for her by Nigel, but the memory of her past still haunts her. She’s determined to make the killers pay for their crimes—and there’s nothing to stop her except her own reckless ways.

But Westie’s search ceases when a wealthy family comes to town looking to invest in Nigel’s latest invention, a machine that can harvest magic from gold—which Rogue City desperately needs as the magic wards that surround the city start to fail. There’s only one problem: the investors look exactly like the family who murdered Westie’s kin. With the help of Nigel’s handsome but scarred young assistant, Alistair, Westie sets out to prove their guilt. But if she’s not careful, her desire for revenge could cost her the family she has now.

What did you recently finish reading?

I really enjoyed Black’s take on vampires. It was a fun and engrossing read that I didn’t want to put down! I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a different kind of vampire story (one that doesn’t include sparkles!). As for The Walls Around Us… just a major disappointment.

What do you think you’ll read next?

    1. Oh gosh, now I’m a bit nervous for it. It’s definitely not a book that I’d pick up for myself and so I doubt I’d ever read it if it wasn’t for the book club. I’m cautiously hopeful that I’m able to stick with it. hope you end up enjoying it though!

  1. I just finished with Ward against Death by Melanie Card so for my next read I’ll either pick Caraval by Stephanie Garber or By Your side by Kasie West. Revenge Wild and A Torch Against the Night are in my tbr but I haven’t gotten to read them yet. I hope you enjoy reading them! 😀

    1. You should definitely pick it up. I think it was a great standalone novel!
      And I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed Big Little Lies! I’m not really looking forward to it but it makes me feel a bit better to know that you enjoyed it. Thank you!

      1. Nice, I need more standalones in my life cuz right now I’m drowning in a sea of series smh. That’s too bad about Big Little Lies but I knw it’s not for everyone, I picked it up as a palette cleanser of sorts in btwn Fantasy series. Every once in a while I need a light read 😉
