Aveline (Lost Vegas #1) by Lizzy Ford 

25 Jul

Publish date:19 Sept 2016

Post-apocalyptic teen fiction.

Seventeen year old assassin-in-training, Aveline, is ready to die rather than submit to her fate working in a brothel to repay her late father’s debts. On the night she tries to end her life, a stranger stops her and offers a proposition: a clean slate, in exchange for her agreement to become the guardian of a young woman she has never met. Leery of the assignment and the man behind it, Aveline has no other option but to accept the deal.

Aveline’s suspicion that something is off about the arrangement magnifies when she meets her new ward, Tiana Hanover, the daughter of the most powerful man in Lost Vegas. Expecting a pampered princess with an attitude, Aveline is surprised to discover Tiana is little more than a slave – and harboring a secret the wealthy Hanover’s cannot risk being revealed in two months, on Tiana’s eighteenth birthday.

Determined to keep the Hanover girl alive, Aveline must learn how to protect Tiana from the other Hanover’s or wind up dead alongside her ward.

***I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 

I was transported into this story from the moment I began to read it. The author portrayal of the characters, places, surroundings and such, enthralled me to the point of making me feel as if I was there myself. The book is very descriptive and palpably alive, made possible by the author’s talented way of telling a story. 

This book may not be for everyone due to it been aimed at teens but it certainly deserves high praise. I finnished reading it in one seating and at the end I wished it would have continued on. 

The story begins with Aveline at her father’s side after he passed away. From then on every page turned was as entertaining as the last. Would I recommend this book? Definitely! Provided the reader is a lover of young adult books as I am.
