Summary (from Goodreads):
“I’m the daughter of murdered parents.
I’m the friend of a dead girl.
I’m the lover of my enemy.
And I will have my revenge.
In the wake of the devastating destruction of the luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace knows the terrifying truth, and she’ll stop at nothing to avenge the murders of everyone she held dear. Even if it means taking down the boy she loves and possibly losing herself in the process.
Sharp and incisive, Daughter of Deep Silence by bestselling author Carrie Ryan is a deliciously smart revenge thriller that examines perceptions of identity, love, and the lengths to which one girl is willing to go when she thinks she has nothing to lose.”
This book should come with a warning label: absolutely do not start this book until and unless you have time to read the whole thing. It was the last thing I did before heading to work for my last shift before BEA vacation, and I had a lot of plans for that shift: pack, laundry, get stuff together for my dog, who is also on vacation.
Here is what actually happened: I read Daughter of Deep Silence.
I don’t want to ruin anything, so that the book can unfold as it should. But suffice to say that if you like revenge stories, this is for you.
I love Frances (who turns into Libby). Yes, she is very, VERY focused on revenge, but she absolutely deserves it. Horrible things happened to her, and I think if I went through even a tenth of what she did, I would be revenge-minded, too.
This book definitely functions as a standalone, but a door is left open for a sequel. (This is probably just wishful thinking on my part.)
