Book Review: Violet Grenade by: Victoria Scott

Release Date: May 16, 2017
from Entangled Teen
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"DOMINO: A girl with blue hair and a demon in her mind.

CAIN: A stone giant on the brink of exploding.

MADAM KARINA: A woman who demands obedience.

WILSON: The one who will destroy them all.

When Madam Karina discovers Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position inside her home for entertainers in secluded West Texas. Left with few alternatives and an agenda of her own, Domino accepts. It isn’t long before she is fighting her way up the ranks to gain the madam’s approval. But after suffering weeks of bullying and unearthing the madam’s secrets, Domino decides to leave. It’ll be harder than she thinks, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory. But then, Madam Karina doesn’t know about the person living inside Domino’s mind. Madam Karina doesn’t know about Wilson."

My Thoughts:

This book is so so twisted and holy wow is it dark... but damn this book is also incredibly addictive. Once I got to part two it was so difficult to put this book down. This is an incredibly unique read and it really shows the versatility Victoria Scott has as an author. 

Domino is a great heroine. She is flawed and has done terrible things and her past is so much more twisted and dark than I ever would have guessed... but she is also likable. When we meet her she is just trying to get by and it is easy to see how she could get caught up in this mess. I really liked Domino and I felt for her. I also liked Wilson which I'm not going to look too deep into because I'm not sure what that says about me.

Along with Domino, I also loved Cain and Poppet. Cain is a quiet one with his own secrets and Poppet is just easy to like simply because of who she is. Both of them bring something to the story and are a big part of Domino's story. There are other characters who play an integral role.. such as Madam Karina... but Cain and Poppet were my favorites. 

Violet Grenade isn't like anything I've read before and because of that I don't think I'll be forgetting this one any time soon. I think we all know what exactly goes on in this Home For Girls, but surprisingly that wasn't even that darkest part of the story, and I think it takes a real talent to tell such a tough story without bringing the reader down to the point where they don't want to continue.  

This was a really good read. It is dark and twisty and addictive. Recommend this one for suspense/psychological thriller fans.

  1. Another blogger last week said this was excellent too and so I was thinking about it. I think now I'm convinced to add it! It does sound dark and twisty but I really want to see what happens with Domino. And the last line of that synopsis is kinda chilling. :)

  3. I am a Scott fan and I occasionally delve into thriller territory so I may need to give this one a go. It sounds like a wild ride, but I'm glad to see the characters made an impression. Excellent review!
