My day was made when Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours contacted me and told me there was a new Graham Saga Book available for review. Revenge and Retribution was sent to me at no charge for my honest review.

As if all this wasn’t enough, Alex also has to cope with the loss of one of her sons. Forcibly adopted by the former Susquehannock, Samuel is dragged from Alex’s arms to begin a new life in the wilderness.
About the Author:
This sixth installment of the Graham Saga picks up pretty much where the last one left off but things don’t look any brighter for Alex and Matthew. Those every present Burley Brothers sans one are still trying to kill them and maintain that preternatural ability to find them any time, anywhere no matter how far they have traveled in the interim. There are hints of promise of their demise but I don’t believe it. I’m beginning to think they are vampires or werewolves or something. Whatever beast they might be they are pure evil.
Evil comes in other forms in this period in history as it’s the time that people are suddenly afraid of witches and are seeing them in their neighbor’s every strange occurrence. Consequently due to some erm, family issues Alex’s brother in law accuses her of being a witch and hysteria reigns. This combined with Indian issues, the aforementioned Burleys and a few other minor problems sprinkled in for good measure make this the darkest chapter in the Graham story. That does not mean that it is all sturm and drang – there is some light in and amongst the darkness which is why I feel compelled to look forward to the next book.
Ms. Belfrage is an excellent writer and her attention to historical detail and character development are spot on. When I read her books I feel I am well and truly part of the characters’ world. I just really think this couple needs a bit of peace for heaven’s sake.
