When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her thirty-third birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken. If she wants her freedom, she has to take a close look at her past. But, her past has a heartbeat... and her kidnapper is nowhere to be found. With her survival hanging by a thread, Senna soon realizes this is a game. A dangerous one. Only the truth can set her free.
This book I’m not going to say too much about. It’ll be best to go into this blind, not really knowing a whole lot of this book, other than the small description above.
There are a few things I do want to talk about and first of all is Tarryn Fisher’s writing style. I was absolutely entranced within pages and couldn’t put the book down until I was done. The book was dark but the writing was lyrical. I got chills and shivers, and I felt as if I was right there with Senna. After I finished this book I went straight to order more of Tarryn’s books.
“There is a string that connects us that is not visible to the eye. Maybe every person has more than one soul they are connected to, and all over the world there are those invisible strings… Maybe the chances that you’ll find each and every one of your soulmates is slim. But sometimes you’re lucky enough to stumble across one. And you feel a tug. And it’s not so much a choice to love them though their flaws and through your differences, but rather you love them without even trying. You love their flaws.”
Mud Vein was dark, I felt as if Fisher reached into my soul, touched it, and darkened it just a bit. I was consumed by the darkness and needed more, I needed answers. I also need everyone to read this. It’s not for the faint of heart, but if you think you can handle a little darkness you definitely need to read this.
