This for That by Bella Jewel



What would you do, for revenge?

Dear Diary,
Oh, who am I kidding?

Dear Life,
You’re cruel. You’re heartless. You’re sick. You’re really damned twisted.
Do you know that?
Still doesn’t cut it.

Dear Fate…yeah, that’s the one.

Dear Fate,
What the actual hell?
What exactly did I do to deserve the life you paved for me?
Did I bother you so?
Was I awful?
Did I not pray enough?
You took my life into your hands, fate, and you twisted it.
You turned it into a broken mess, and you made it ugly.
You made me ugly.
A life for a life.
An eye for an eye.
That’s how it goes, right?
Her life. Now mine.
Someone is coming for me, but you already know that, don’t you fate?
Did you plan it?
Did you even try to tell them it wasn’t my fault?
That it was an accident?
That I didn’t mean for it to happen?
Or is this part of your sick and twisted plan?
I have one last question, fate, before you go…
Have you got a hero for me?
Because I’m going to need one.


This for That is the first book in Bell Jewel’s new series The Edge of Retaliation. It’s hard to do a review for a book when you don’t want to give anything away so this will be short and sweet.

This was an exciting read and you’re kept on your toes throughout. I’m not really a fan of jumping to the past to tell a story but it worked for this book. Twists and turns, I’d love to say I didn’t see them all coming but I might have seen one! Great secondary characters that your constantly thinking “Are they really who they say they are?”

It does end in a BIG cliff-hanger so beware, but Bella has said it won’t be long for the next book in the series to be released.  Highly entertaining book and really recommend giving it a read.
