Overview

Payback is a bitch and her name is Kali Sweet...

I’m Kali Sweet, the best damn vengeance demon on earth. I work for the supernatural world’s Justice Department and protect innocent humans from otherworldly creatures like me. While I can’t take revenge for myself, I make sure justice is done for others.

But when my latest run-in with Chicago’s vampire king backfires, the fallout leaves me with three big problems: a powerful Undead enemy who wants my head, my boss looking over my shoulder, and three personal blood slaves jeopardizing my reputation.

One of those slaves happens to be sexy rock star Radison Beaumont – the half-human, half-chaos demon who left me at the altar three hundred years ago. Even if he does need my blood now to survive, Rad and I will always be enemies.

Especially since he’s joined an ancient society of demon killers—and I’m the number one demon on their most wanted list.

    You'll love the memorable characters and intense plot!

    The author definitely knows how to create some amazing and detailed characters. Kalina Dolce, or Kali Sweet as she is now known, is a tough woman who doesn't take crap from anyone. Oh, and she just so happens to be a vengeance demon who works for an organization that keeps other paranormal beings at bay. As was detailed in the synopsis, she has to deal with many different problems in this book, but I don't think any of them compare to the conflict caused by the many men in her life. First there is Radison; he and Kali were once engaged, but he never showed up to their wedding. As Kali learns more about Rad and the situation surrounding their almost-marriage, it only causes more conflict. Then there's Cole, a fellow demon who works for the Bridge Council with Kali. He acts as her bodyguard a lot of the time, even though I'm positive she could hold her own. Her boss at the Bridge Council, Damon, is mysterious and hard to figure out at times. I found myself constantly evaluating his motives. Finally there is Alexandru, or Dru for short, who just so happens to be a vampire. Although he isn't introduced until towards the end, and Kali doesn't seem extremely drawn to him (she's not particularly fond of vampires), I found him to be an interesting character who isn't afraid to stand up for what he believes is right. Let's discuss these men a little further. It's hard to say who is exactly right for Kali. Just when I thought I had picked a favorite, one of the other guys would do something that put me on their side. Radison is an obvious choice for her. They have so much history, although much of it is tainted with ill feelings. I think there is still more to him that we haven't seen yet and underneath everything he really does care for her. Cole very obviously wants Kali to himself and that doesn't go completely unnoticed by her, but she's still evaluating her feelings for Radison. I feel that Cole has a spot in her heart though and I am predicting that he will play a bigger part in her personal life in the future. I was conflicted about Damon. At times it seemed like he had real feelings for Kali, but I couldn't be sure. He could just as easily have been manipulating her in order to better control her. For me, the jury is still out on his real motives. Last but not least there's Dru. I fell in love with him pretty quickly; he's quite the gentleman, if you can get past the fact that his father is Vlad, the ruthless leader of the vampires. He's certainly someone I would want in my corner, though, because he seems so loyal and genuine. I guess we'll have to wait and see which direction Kali's heart leads her. I absolutely adored the story line in this book. It's hard to stand out in a world full of paranormal novels, but somehow this one managed it. The story line captured my attention from the beginning and kept it until the very last page. There was a lot of different things going on at once, but it never got confusing or frustrating. It just made it that much harder to put down at the end of the day. If you're a fan of the paranormal genre, or even if you're not, I think there's a little something in this book for everyone.

    I love every minute of Revenge is Sweet. Awesome, Yes! I loved it so much that I had to share with friends before I was halfway through the book; that takes a lot for a series I am not already sharing with them.



    In this outstanding story of adventure and romance, Kali Sweet, a vengeance demon who loves and protects humans, faces daunting changes in her world!  The half Chaos demon, half human who left her at the alter is back in her life, just in time to accidentally drink her blood after she has been injected by a royal vampire.  She hates vampires!!! Now, not only does she have three blood servants, don't tell anyone about that third one please, but she is about to become Queen of the Undead for Central United States.  Yep, her world is about to change!  Humor, character, and plot are hallmarks of Misty Evans that takes this book to an outstanding level.

    Kali Sweet is phenomenal!

    This book is fantastic. Great plot, great action, great characters. I love that Kali is such a warrior, and all of the twists and turns in the plot. If you like Kresley Cole or Gena Showalter, this will be right up your alley.

    This book wowed me. Kali Sweet's old boyfriend may be a rockstar

    This book wowed me. Kali Sweet's old boyfriend may be a rockstar, but Kali is the one that rocks! What a great character. In fact, every character (demon/vamp/human/whatever) in this book is fantastic. And so is the plot, with the twists and turns that keep putting Kali and her friends into more and more trouble. I won't give away any spoilers, so I'll just say there is one scene that I plan to go back and reread about three times, because it's so amazing. I've been a fan of Ms. Evans's books for a while, and with this book she's become one of my favorite authors.

    This is my first read in the genre "Urban Fantasy" and

    This is my first read in the genre "Urban Fantasy" and I loved it. I love Misty Evans’ writing so that is the only reason I tried this book out. It was a very fun, suspenseful (to me anyway), romantic, humorous read. As with all of Misty's books, there is not "break" anywhere in the story where it is easy to put it down. The story just flows from one chapter to the next. Kali is such a tough, awesome heroine who knows what she wants, but doesn't at the same time. She has a vulnerable side like we all do. She deals with weaknesses like we all do, yet she is tough as nails and tries so hard to not show her weaknesses. The characters were all so well developed and the relationships between them were great. I really like Rad, Cole, Dru, Maddy, and Damon. Kali met Luc and Amy from the Witches Anonymous series and I loved the Italian slang words. In this book, I like how the fantasy stuff has a real twist to it and while they have magic and supernatural abilities, it isn't all about those as much so it is easier to understand. Highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next one to come out!

    Revenge is Sweet is the first novel in the urban fantasy series

    Revenge is Sweet is the first novel in the urban fantasy series Kali Sweet by award winning author Misty Evans. This adult-fiction offers an urban fantasy set in the windy city of Chicago. Filled with demons, vampires, witches and angels this fast-paced action packed novel keep me on the edge of my seat.

    The protagonist is Kali Sweet. She is a vengeance demon who works for the Bridge Council. They are responsible for keeping supernatural creatures in check and protect innocent humans. I absolutely adore Kali. She is tough, smart and incredibly resourceful. She fights danger head on, but does everything in her power to protect life. She has been around, some of her back history involves the year 1920. She has surrounded herself with a great group of friends and I liked all the individual characters. The men around her, all seem to be protective of her. They respect her and are probably a little in love with this snarky little warrior. While she is bound from seeking revenge for herself, she can seek it for others and her skill set is exceptional. Her feisty attitude and sensitive heart make her a powerhouse in the butt-kicking department. Throughout the novel, Evans hints of untapped powers and that Kali is very unique. I am very excited to see her growth in upcoming novels. In the relationship department, it is very obvious (though she would flat out deny it) that her heart belongs and always will to the man who broke it approx. 300 years ago…. Radison Beaumont. Rad is a half-demon and hasn’t seen Kali in almost 300 years. From the beginning it is apparent that he still loves Kali, that he is suffering from some kind of guilt and that what Kali thinks occurred back in 1920, isn’t the full story. I feel in love with this sexy, romantic chaos demon and cannot wait to watch more of their story unfold.

    In this tale, Kali’s job for the council gets her in trouble when she has a run in with the Chicago vampire leader. She ends up taking him out and finds herself with three blood slaves…one of them is Rad. The tale that unfolds, finds her in danger, as a witch hires her to do an impossible task. This witch has escaped from Hell and failing could mean Kali’s death. The council is making demands and everyone wants her dead. With her partner Cole and her friends help, she is determined to set things right. Rad, despite her protests, stays close by her side. Oddly he ends up helping a lot and the more she listens to him, the more she wonders about the events causing their break-up. I consumed this in a few hours and loved every minute of it. My only complaint was the abrupt ending. I didn’t see it coming and it left me unsatisfied and wanting more. It wasn’t a cliffhanger but it left me with enough teasers that I truly wanted to scream.LOL

    Evans creates a world that had my heart skipping. Her tale is tightly woven and its clear she knows this world and its characters intimately. I liked the hierarchy of the vampire world. The characters that run the different districts were delightfully entertaining. The corruption reminded me of the mob as everyone shuffles for more power. The Bridge council and its leader intrigued me. They ask Kali to do something unusual, and I cannot help but wonder what their ulterior motive is. They claim it’s for the good of all...but I have a niggling feeling they know more about who and what Kali really is then she does. The characters had depth and I loved their back history. Even the minor characters were unique and I felt invested in them. We briefly meet a few interesting angels and witches. I am excited to see if they will play a more integral role in the series. Evans portrayal of two very well known angels had me grinning from ear to ear. The chemistry between Rad and Kali was intense and their raw emotions seemed to rise up from the pages and engulf me. While this is mainstream fiction, there were some hot and steamy scenes.(mostly implied) Evans did a great job of making their relationship and the tension believable. I felt for both of them and got swept up in their tale.

    I applaud Misty Evans

    I applaud Misty Evans on this book! Amazing job on the characters. I think they stand out the most. I found even the secondary characters were done amazingly as well. She even entangled some of her characters from her other series. The world setting was developed well and believable. The Plot, and pace was nicely done. Complete with twists and turns, and few edge of your seat moments. Writing style was professional. Overall I loved this book!

    A must read, at least on your TBR pile!

    This story is one of those where you want to be the hero of the book! Kali is a Buffy the vampire slayer new genre. I fell head first in this story and I must admit I struggled to emerge. I thought about it constantly and I loved my experience. It was my first book of the author Misty Evans and surely not the last! Revenge is Sweet is the first book of a new series created by the same author as the series: Witches Anonymous. We even find some characters from the Witches Anonymous in Revenge is Sweet and I intend to start the series Witches Anonymous soon! I loved the writing style of the author, I was delighted by her enthusiasm and especially by the use of some Italian terms (LOL) used throughout the story and that adds to the realism. In addition, the author knows how to use humor to her advantage and there is a lot of it in this book! I have often had a few laughs and I must say it feels good! A true therapy, cheaper! The action is taking place in our time but the author often refers to the past of her characters (which often brings us back to Roman times). The fact that the author takes the time to explain the past of the main characters is very helpful to the understanding of the global story! I loved the fact that the action never stops! Even the sensual scenes are exciting. I must confess that I remained impressed by the fact that the book is not bombarded with sex scenes (which are nevertheless very interesting! Yummy!) (I'm the kind of reader who enjoys reading a sexy scene in each chapter (you get the idea!), but this is not the case in Revenge is Sweet). There is always something happening that allows the reader to stay alert and hooked! The heroin is very endearing, I think all girls dream of being a bit like her or have a friend like this: Kali is a beautiful girl, intelligent, who can fight and do not let anyone stepping on her head, but she got the heart on her hand and she's always present for her friends. It is a heroine of modern times with a troubling past, but she didn't feel sorry for herself. Radison is the perfect representation of the sexy male and it seems to be an attractive creature! I'd like to know which actor would play its role on the screen! I really liked this character, at once mysterious but very sensual! Oh my, I have dreamed! Even Lucifer seems to be very sexy and attractive! And I love stories that include Lucifer, so Misty Evans as a new fan to both of her series as Kali Sweet and Witches Anonymous! I was very pleased to discover this world full of paranormal creature: any reader will be satisfied, the vampire to demon from shifter to witch all the elements is put together to attract and win the heart of the fans of the paranormal. I think this new series will delight fans of Misty Evans are also new player like me. You'll love this story I highly recommend it! I'm looking forward to read the next book in this series!

    Revenge is Definitely Sweet

    Misty Evans's first foray into urban fantasy proves to be a successful one. In REVENGE IS SWEET, she continues what she started in the ENTANGLED anthology with her short story, "Sweet Demon."

    Kali Sweet is a vengeance demon, one of the best on Earth, sworn to protect humans from otherworldly creatures. When she kills a notorious vampire king, she's pulled into that world by her boss, Damon, who insists she take his place as queen. She's also managed to gather a few blood slaves along the way, including one who happens to be the on-again/off-again lover who jilted her centuries before.

    I enjoyed reading this first book of the series. Misty Evans builds a wonderful world populated with witches, demons and vampires. Fans of her Witches Anonymous series will love the cameo with Amy and Lucifer. I love that she crossed the two stories in such a masterful way. For fans of urban fantasy, this book doesn't disappoint.
