Praise for Soul Avenged
(Sons of Wrath, #1)
“Keri Lake’s “Soul Avenged” is an action-packed, fast-paced, emotional roller-coaster that will have you begging for more.” -
Book Lovin’ Mamas
“It’s truly a treat to grab up an indie author’s work only to find out that you’ve come across an amazing writing talent, and that’s exactly what happened when I read this first installment of Keri Lake’s Sons of Wrath series.” -
The Autumn Review
It was a beautiful romance but there was so much more. The Lycans, the Alexi, Ayden’s past and her vengeance... all is related and it is so good! The fight scenes with the Lycans were giant!” –
The Darkest Reader
“Soul Avenged is an impeccable start to the Sons of Wrath series. Ms. Lake’s world of evil Lycans, sexy demons, twisted villain and a kick ass heroine had me turn the pages nonstop.” -
Under the Covers Book Blog
“Paranormal romance is my absolute favorite genre and this is a prime example of why I read it. This book has it all: very hot vengeance dealing demon brothers, a very hot sexy Lycan and a death dealing kick butt heroine.” -
The Jeep Diva
“A fierce heroine, a forbidden romance and non-stop action…a must read for urban fantasy lovers!” -
Romancing the Dark Side
This was one of the BEST paranormal fantasy reads I have read in a long time! … The book hits the ground running, full sprint. There is no lead up, Keri Lake just drops you into the middle of the action and makes you say to yourself, “Yeeeesss!” –

Praise for Soul Resurrected
(Sons of Wrath, #2)
“What I am really loving about these books is that
has managed to successfully combine Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. We get the dark, gritty, fast-paced action and intricate plot of UF and combined it with a heart-wrenching, yet smoldering romance. HOTNESS!!” -
“The ratings don’t lie, Soul Avenged and Soul Resurrected are delectable chunks of PNR/UF goodness you’ll be crazy not get your hands on.” -
Talk Supe Blog
is dark, raw and, at times downright gruesome while somehow also succeeding at being smokin’ hot; an unlikely combination that works for Keri Lake … The world-building and dark tone continues to be the shining stars of this series; their uniqueness and brilliance are what keeps me coming back for more.” -
“The world building is really well done and this book adds a lot from the demon perspective, although I am still hungry for more.” -
“I definitely recommend Lake’s
Sons of Wrath
books if you want to read a great paranormal book, a story that has its twist and turns, and with a load of action and hotness!!” –
Hook Me Up Book Blog
“I have been waiting for
since I read
nine months ago. Keri Lake’s Sons of Wrath series is definitely on my auto-buy list, and for fans of PNR and UF, it should be on yours, too!” -
