My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sixteen year old Serenity hides her secret of her abusive home life well. She only has a handful of friends that she trusts but even they do not share in that horror which haunts her. Serenity also know there’s something a bit different about her than others. She can see the dark or light that surrounds a person and has visions of other lives and a woman that she feels connected to.
Serenity is a book that holds so much in the pages that it’s hard to describe and do it justice. It’s definitely an emotional roller coaster ride from start to finish that will have a reader laughing and crying at any given moment. Serenity will hook you into her story very early on and have you guessing until the very end on just where the book will take you.
As usual with a book from India R. Adams I felt like she lives and breathes her characters and brings them to life to tell their stories. With such emotional and tough subjects involved such as abuse, rape and alcoholism it’s a tough read in spots but also there’s a light to the characters as they find a way to deal with all that is going on and some very heartwarming moments. A touch of fantasy involved in this one was just the icing on the cake to make this a very unique and wonderful read.
Overall, great writing that makes you feel every emotion along the journey and that brings the characters to life. Definitely one I’d recommend checking out.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
