Story Background: To Avenge tells the story of the reactions and repercussions of a terrible crime. Vera is the college-aged victim of a sexual assault who is trying to deal with the aftermath of that physical and emotional trauma. Shortly after her assault by a group of four young men, Vera is relieved to learn her attackers have been caught. The men, however, are quickly cleared of the charges and released due to coercion and blackmail coming from a wealthy and well-connected family.
Unknown to Vera, someone is watching – a woman who believes that what happened is unacceptable and wants to make things right by any means necessary. While Taarna takes bold action, Vera quietly proves her strength and resilience. While Vera works to rebuild and regain her life, we get the sense that she’s going to be alright– which is more than can be said for the men who attacked her.
