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.
***Warning. This book is for mature audiences only and has many triggers including strong language, sexual/fetish content and rape/ abuse flashbacks. This is a work of fiction about surviving and is not for the faint of heart. *** This is an MC Romance with dark edges...
This year is all about stepping out of the box for me and this book did just that... took me way way way out of the box and comfort zone I read in... and then some.
Dark. Raw. Dirty. Intense. Unexpected. Kristina Canady sure knows how to weave a twisted, gritty tale that will leave your jaw dropped and head spinning from the experience it offers... and that's what this book is, an experience... but I wouldn't change a moment.
Winter's Absolution is a book that marks your soul deep and rips at your heart, leaving it cut completely wide open. I'm still reeling from reading this novel and the feelings it evoked in me. Luna and Leo will break you (they did me times ten), over and over again, but hope, healing, and redemption.... beacons of light in such dark.
Leo and Luna won't be leaving me anytime soon and I definitely look forward to the next from Kristina.
I recommend this book to people who heed warnings and like dark dark dark... it's definitely not for everyone.
