Jane grew up as a child abused by her father and constantly put down, giving her low self-esteem in school and life. In Jane’s misery a mysterious, dark woman appears and promises to avenge those who hurt her, three souls in return for anything she ever wanted. At the time, Jane calls her an angel. The first name for the list is her father, but vengeance isn’t immediate. Jane grows up and manages to carve out a normal life for herself. When the angel comes again to remind Jane of their deal, she refuses to give the angel a third name and Jane comes to see exactly what her angel is.
This was a surprising novella. At first, as Jane describes her life growing up, the constant abuse and bullying took its toll and I kept waiting for Jane to fight back. When Jane finally meets her angel and realizes what power she holds, things become much more interesting. I loved when Jane began to stand up to her misogynistic boss and became her own person. The twist with the deceased singer and Jane’s dream world gave made Jane and her angel even more engrossing. Trying to figure exactly what Jane’s angel was and the motives behind what she wanted became darker and darker as Jane grew up and the fight between Jane’s well-being and seeking justice comes to a head. A surprising ending wrapped up this thrilling and quick read.
