“All things truly wicked start from innocence.” – Ernest Hemingway
I hear screams in my head.
I see blood on my hands.
When I look in the mirror I see a stranger.
How is it that I can remember bits and pieces of my life, but nothing of any importance and nothing that makes any sense? Everything is twisted and nothing is right. I’m choking with every breath I take, suffocating on the unknown.
Two days ago, everything changed. Two days ago, the people I should trust the most became strangers in my convoluted head. The dreams I have can’t be real. The fleeting memories that whisper through my mind are scary and wrong…they have to be. If they aren’t, I have something much worse to fear than my fractured mind. I need to find out the truth, even if it destroys me.
I've been told my name is Ravenna Duskin. I’m eighteen years old and I live in a prison…
4 STAR REVIEW!!!
Holy guacamole batman! Just when you think Tara Sivec is only the Queen of Comedy, think again!! She rocked her first dark & suspenseful release in Bury Me.
I don't even know what to say about this book. It held my attention from the very beginning. There was nothing about this story, about this girl that was dull at any moment. Ravenna is something else, let me tell you. Trying to get into the inner workings of that girl's mind was something of it's own!
She was so damaged, so lost, yet so dark and terrifying. I LOVED IT. I couldn't distinguish what real in her mind and what wasn't. I'm ashamed to admit, her thoughts scared me sometimes. I kept having dark music play in my head, wondering if she was remembering anything correctly.
I'm not giving away ANYTHING as to the plot line. Nothing, zip, nada. You're just going to have to read it yourself but know that Tara Sivec has blown me away again. T means death, death means T. I'll leave you with that little bit.
But the writing, it was fantastic. The plot even better. I am happy to say Tara has given herself a spot with the Queens of Dark! So good, so dark, and so utterly terrifying.
Before I can command my feet to move toward the shape—the safer of the two evils—I hear another sound in the opposite direction and foolishly turn my head. Something heavy and solid crashes against my skull and I feel myself falling. Darkness descends over me one last time, covering my eyes, clogging my ears and stealing the breath from my lungs. Nothing will ever be the same again.
Nothing will ever be good again.
It will all be bad.
