After rescuing her sister, Olivia, from imprisonment in Lera, a rival kingdom, Em has devised a plan that will rebuild Ruina to its former glory. But just because Em and Olivia are out of Lera doesn't mean they are safe. Their actions over the past year have had consequences, and they are now targets of retaliation. Ever since Em posed as Prince Casimir's betrothed in Lera, she's started to see another side to this war. Lera may have destroyed the Ruined for decades, but Em knows that Cas is different. And now that he's take the throne, Em believes a truce is within reach. But when winning the war could mean betraying her family, she faces an impossible choice between loyalty and love. Em must stay one step ahead of her enemies--and her blood--before she's the next victim in this battle for sovereignty.-- Adapted from dust jacket.

Avenged is a story that revolves around kings and queens who are struggling for power, peace and love. Being the sequel to Ruined, many of the characters in Avenged are the same, though there are new characters introduced. I particularly enjoyed the character development of Aren and Olivia throughout the course of the novel. It is definitely interesting to see how Olivia and Emelina’s conflicting ideas affect their relationship and the ones around them. At one point, the novel does get a bit tiring to read as the characters always seem to be travelling from one place to another. Nonetheless, the story is well-paced.
Another important part of this novel is its magic. Magic plays a great role developing the action and violence that occurs in the story.
Although I prefer reading stories written from first-person perspective, I felt that Tintera has been extremely effective in telling this story through third-person point-of-view.
Overall, Avenged will be an enjoyable-read to those have an interest in YA fantasies.
A great installment to Ruined.
