Back Blurb:
The Truth come with a Price. 
     Nikki knew Damon Vessler would not let his prized creation go easily---she simply never imagined the lengths he'd go to get her back into his clutches, and turn Nikki's heart toward darkness.
       A Seeker at her heels, trained on her blood, Nikki flees with Raven alongside her for protection, while Mace and the other Halflings fight the battle that has erupted on earth. But even as the two boys she loves fight for her, she knows the battle will be hers to win. Determined to uncover the secrets of her past, and exactly how she fits into Vessler's twisted plans, Nikki sets off on her own, and soon discovers facing hellacious beasts is nothing compared to the decision she will need to make. One that could change not only the war, and her relationship with Mace and Raven, but her future with the Throne.

My Review:
  "Avenger is a book I am very proud to have on my bookshelf."
 
Stunning. Avenger is a dazzling addition to the Halfling series. Everything about this book was wonderful! (except for one teeny tiny glitch.)
Pros:
It's amazing how Ms. Burch puts so many Biblical scenes in her books but yet, if you aren't looking for them or aren't familiar with the Bible, you'd never know they were there. So don't let this being a Christian stop you from reading it because there's plenty for everyone in Avenger!
Cons:
THE LOVE TRIANGLE! Nikki chose the wrong guy! Everyone knows who the right guy is and she chose the wrong one. *sobs* Seriously though, this was the only con I could find in this book.
Additional thoughts:
Ms. Burch, you are an extremely talented author. Extremely talented. I am figuratively dying to read more of your work! Avenger is a book I am very proud to have on my bookshelf. :) Please come out with another work of art soon!
