Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Woah buddy. This story is not for the faint of heart or the queasy stomach! It’s a hard to read story, full of angst,full of hatred, and full of sadness. Don’t fret, there is a light at the end of the tunnel but it is only a pin hole of light for a good majority of the story.

This was a good story but a hard read. It took longer than I planned to read the story, partly because the nature of the story, partly because I had to convince myself to come back to read more. I was torn during the first half of the story. It was written well, had great detail, and was very realistic. That being said, the nature of the book was a lot darker than I normally read.

That being said, the second half the story is much brighter, has a lighter feel, and starts to exude some happiness and sunshine. You feel the love and actions are heartfelt. It almost drips happiness. I feel like I need to mention that it does end with a HEA. This is for those that need that in a story and might shy away from my paragraph above.

Details and descriptions were very well written. Sometimes it felt a little too realistic but I think it was absolutely necessary to get the correct feel across to the readers.  It needed to be real and it needed to be over detailed. I think had it not been, it wouldn’t have stressed the importance of the scenes. So while it might have been a little too much at the time, when I look back at the story as a whole, I applaud the author and think she did a phenomenal job.

I do absolutely suggest reading this story. I also suggest once you finish reading it, give yourself a few hours, days, weeks, whatever it takes, to reflect back on the story, and the work the author put into writing it.  I think by doing that you will appreciate the story and the work that it took to write it.
