Reality can be more terrifying than the strange tales that sometimes circulate. When inky blackness creeps and crawls into every internal recess of a human being, it can be a recipe for living hell on earth.
But sometimes, even in the most desolate, frigid terrains… absolution can be found.
Serpent tongues, slithering all around, hissing violent, toxic things, choking the very life out of me… There is no light here, yet I cling to a formless hope that may not even exist. Even as this personal prison tries to wring the last bit of breath from my cold body, I can’t help but think that a lifeline will be thrown to me through the barrage of taunting shadows that tempt me with whisperings to simply end it myself.
The voices of past deeds and experiences never stop, no matter how hard I work to get over the scarred bits that are always on the verge of being picked open like a sore that will never heal. Most days, I’d rather bang my head into a concrete slab until they all just shut the fuck up. That all stopped the day I found her, a broken, quivering mess who was afraid to leave my property. Her personal demons shone through her sunken eyes, and I knew I had found someone familiar. She scared me to death, but through her, my purpose in this godforsaken world came into focus. She needed me to be a beacon… to show her the way out of the desolate pit of hell that I had only recently figured out how to climb out of.
OMFG!! What a read!!! I just loved it and couldn’t get enough. The story drew me in from page 1 and didn’t let go til it was read, but what a world I was drawn in to!! OMG I love a dark read, but this was truly and utterly dark, raw, gritty, violent but at the same time it was full of love, selflessness, healing, self worth and belief. A true roller coaster of an emotional read.
Luna has been kidnapped and held as a sex slave, subjected to the most horrendous and horrible violent raping and torture you can think of. But has a fleeting chance of escape and takes it, running for her life, finding a place to hide on a farm in a bale of hay. Her kidnappers are sent away for the farm’s owner, Leo, who finds Luna and does his best to help her in his own way, even though he is broken beyond any kind or normality.
What follows is an epic journey of self discovery for them both. I won’t tell you any more about this, as it really has to be read, to be understood and appreciated. I am so glad I took a chance on this book and read it!!
But be warned about how dark and violent it is and what it contains, as there are triggers galore in here. But if you can get past that, you are in for one hell of a ride. A fantastic read, highly recommended!!
