Serenity is the wife of an abusive husband. The book begins with her losing her job and on the same day she meets Sebastian, who is different from anyone she has known, at this early stage she is not really aware of just how different. From this point the story twists and and turns and her life changes dramatically.
This was a compelling read. It has moments of darkness and the picture portrayed of abusive relationships really rings true to life. There are also moments of hope and Serenity is not just a victim of poor choices and bad relationships but a person who discovers she has a lot of internal strengths and her capacity for loving and caring has not been obliterated by the years of aggression and constant denigration, just deeply hidden.
This is a love story but it is as much about the meaning of humanity, self respect and self forgiveness as it is about romantic love.
Don't get me wrong, this is not a deep, worthy or heavy book, it is a really good story, well told, easy to read and with characters that feel real, even within the context of some of them being vampires.
The ending sets up the next in the trilogy but this doesn't detract from the book as a whole, even though I usually dislike books that don't finish, this one does at least end in a place that feels appropriate.
I am looking forward to reading the next one in the series.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I am so glad I did and have no qualms about recommending this for purchase. I will be buying others in this series.
Despite the very real personal demons that have brought her to this lonely time and place Serenity still controls her own will. And when Sebastian Bandores happens upon the young woman on her knees in a dark alleyway, the encounter leaves her with an inner strength she never thought possible.
Serenity can't stop thinking about the beautiful stranger that pulled her out of an emotional gutter, rescuing her from her lowest ebb. Life suddenly has promise; but life can get worse - far worse - and so can death.
MARISSA FARRAR carries us through this haunting vampire tale as a feather on the wind, dipping and fluctuating between passion and horror. She masters Serenity's strengths and weaknesses, her resilience and distrust as the reluctant heroine struggles to comprehend the otherworldly extremes of vampiric hunger.
The author's principal characters are passionate, loyal and loving - perfect bait for the vicious antagonists of this chilling horror novel where no-one and nowhere is safe.
Well-written with an addictive pace, I loved this book. I can't wait to read the follow-up BURIED Buried (The 'Serenity' Series). The author has cleverly gifted us with the prologue of the second book as a wicked tease at the end of book one - and it promises darkness. A generous bonus.
4* out of 5, and highly recommended.
