My 5 star review
I will start off my saying that this book blew me way. I have gotten emotional reading some books but this one let me tell you...topped the charts. Yes I said it, I am an emotional women and yes I have cried during books. But once I got to the ending of Mud Vein I was sobbing like a baby. It was as if a dam broke and every built up tear of mine was released.
Now, I am warning you now that I may end up spoiling some of this book for you but I am sorry I can't help it. However, I will try my hardest not to ruin it all for you.
Senna Richards is a 33 year old woman. (I turn 33 in May!) She has been through a lot in her life but yet she finds a way to cope with all of the pain she had to endure over the years. Now it may not be the normal way of coping with issues, stuff, and the past but hey we are all human and well it happens and we deal with it all the best way we can.
Next thing you need to know is that there is a Nick in the book that happens to be Senna’s ex-boyfriend and he ends up leaving her because she doesn't want to get married, but he loves her. NOPE, sorry Nick if you loved her then you would stay with her and learn to deal. That is if and only if you truly love her with every fiber of your being. So stop acting like a boy and grow a pair.
However Isaac, now he is a man. Actually he is the doctor that happens to be running in the woods at the exact moment that Senna needs to be saved. But not in the way you think...and I will not spoil that for you...not one bit. Anyways, he is there for her and that in itself will make you fall in love with this character.
Ok let’s now get down to business...
First off, I had to stop once I got to about 20% into this book because my sister came into my room and needed help with her computer. And all I did was look at her and say: “Brandy I can't read this book. There is a scene coming up in the next few pages that I am terrified to find out what happens. Naturally she looks at me and says, “Really Cecily you are and will finish it anyway, I will lay right here until I get to tired and then I will leave." So I continued to read this crazy, intense, heart-stopping, heartbreaking, soul crushing, mind blowing, insane, scary, and frustrating masterpiece.
Tarryn Fisher literally ripped out my soul, made me gasp, but then she put me back together. I can somewhat relate to Senna and maybe that is why this book broke me down and scared the hell out of me, I am not sure. But what I do know is that once you read the letter that she writes to Isaac. I dare you now to try and not feel a damn thing or shed a tear. You will undoubtedly fail. You will lose and you will feel something and the dam WILL break.
So go now and add it to your TBR list or go and One-Click it. And for the love of me ;) grab tissues, a handkerchief, or even toilet paper because you will need it.
