Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott
Publisher/Year: Entangled Publishing, 2017
Her name is Domino Ray.
But the voice inside her head has a different name.
When Madam Karina finds Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position at her girls’ home in secluded West Texas. With no 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…and falling for Cain, the mysterious boy living in the basement.
But the madam has horrible secrets. So do the girls in the house. So does Cain.
Escaping is harder than Domino expects, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory. But then, Madam Karina doesn’t know about the danger living inside Domino’s mind.
Madam Karina doesn’t know about Wilson.
What I thought
All I can say is that I was VERY impressed by this book. It was riveting and damn near impossible to put down. It isn’t often that I can honestly describe a book as truly unique, but this odd little book really was like nothing I have read before. All I know is that I was all about it as I was reading.
Whether it was the little snippets of info that dropped ever so slowly that had me itching for more, Domino’s kickass character, the supporting characters I grew to love (Cain 😍, Poppet, and Wilson!), or simply Victoria Scott’s incredible writing style, I could not have asked for more from a novel.
This is probably one of my favorite reads so far this year, which was completely unsuspected. Violet Grenade is a little gem that I feel is very underrated. If you’re looking for something completely different or if you’re looking for a DARK psychological suspense/thriller, look no more–I HIGHLY recommend Violet Grenade!
