Synopsis

I point at my hair, and I say, This color. You know what it's called?
She shakes her head: No.
I say, REVENGE.
She says Good girl. Kill him.

Revenge is a bitch.

Jade Khanjara and her three best friends rule their glittering LA circle. They control everything.
Until one night.

The night four boys spike Jade's drink, lock her in a room and attack her. When they try to ruin her.
But they chose the wrong girl.

Jade is made of claws and fangs and cruel sharp edges. Jade will have them clutching at their throats and choking on blood.

She wants revenge. She has no mercy. And now she won't rest until she gets satisfaction.

Foul is Fair
Rambling narrative.. too close to source for retelling.. needs some thoughts of its own..
(I received this title as an ARC. All opinions are mine and freely given.) "Fair is foul, foul is fair" - an infamous phrase and recurring theme, not just... READ MORE

Foul is Fair
"I whisper, sweet, "You picked the wrong girl."
Where to even start? This book was...an experience. I didn't really like Jade (Elle) at first, I just couldn't take to her. Then I realised she'd been rape... READ MORE
