A "good boy" will do anything for vengeance when a gang rite kills his twin sister. Will Lucas win, or follow his sister Silver into the darkness?
After a hideous car wreck, Lucas wakes from a coma to find that his world is gutted. Not only is his beloved twin sister, Silver, gone forever, but Lucas is broken in body and spirit. He will never be a college athlete, and is robbed of what he now realizes was the most important bond of his life. Although they weren't identical twins, Lucas and Silver shared a bond so fierce it defied reason, and was nearly supernatural.
After her death, that bond seems to endure when Lucas sees Silver everywhere he turns. Either he's crazy, or Silver is trying to tell him something about the California gang initiation they stumbled into that cost Silver her life. Lucas is bent on revenge, turning on Raymond, Silver's former boyfriend; the one Lucas never wanted her to date. He forms a posse of vigilantes to take out the gangsters responsible for Silver's death, but he risks not only his own life, but the love of the new girl on his block, who knows more about Lucas and Silver than can be accounted for by mere chance.
"Based on the blurbs from the publisher, I feared that this wasn't going to be my cup of tea. Literary YA fiction doesn't generally thrill me. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I couldn't put it down."
"...it's well-written, with nicely developed characters. The plot moves along at a swift pace and never lets up. Overall, an interesting and entertaining read."
"This is the third Erin Richards book that I've read and I enjoyed the first two so much I really wanted to see how she handled a YA. Granted, I'm not exactly the target audience for a YA but I truly enjoyed, Vigilante Nights."
"You owed me a trip to the mall. Besides, I didn't lose my cell. Someone stole it out of my purse." She danced her fingers on her silver bangles into a tinkling vibration. "I needed a new phone anyway. Screen was shot." A giggle slipped out. "Karma's a bitch."
"I'll talk to them." Sharma's stumpy legs toddled toward the door. Yeah, the rest of his body was attached, too. I'm telling you, these drugs are the bomb. "They can obtain their statement in the morning when he's stabilized." The room finally cleared and Mom rushed to my bedside.
"Mom? What's going on?" I felt leaden on the slab bed, the scratchy sheets rough against my exposed back. I blinked rapidly to force my eyes to stay open.
"The sheriff wants a statement." She averted her gaze, tucked her hair behind her ear. The hair tuck was her avoidance tell. "They can get it later. You need to rest now."
