Alone ?

4 Stars
Marissa Farrar gives the reader a very lifelike interpretation of what living through domestic violence is life. Not skating around or sugarcoating the difficult topics and manages to draw the reader into an amazing story that will tear at your hear and make you think.

Serenity and Sebastian are both survivors. Making the dynamic of their relationship deeper than most.  Also opening  a world of new dangers for them both. Giving the reader a story with intense topics, action, complex characters and a bit of passion.
Julia Farmer’s narration adds to the depth and complexity of not only the characters, but the story as a whole.

I look forward to seeing what the next chapter of the Serenity series holds.
