Although, what Abbey isn’t prepared for, is how harsh and unfair the world can be. With the sun turning its back on humanity long ago, life gives no opportunity. The only thing Abbey can do is learn to survive. To exist. And that means stealing any opportunity that comes her way. Haunted by the unpleasant memories bestowed upon her only nurtures Abbey’s paranoia, until she realises that to truly live in the world, she must confront the person who was responsible for her misfortune – her father.

Here Lies Love is a New Adult tale of actuality, of facing up to the fact that love comes in many guises. Can Abbey find the one glimmer of the hope or will she be overcome with the darkness of revenge?

My Thoughts:

While I took a little bit longer to get into the book, I did find it intriguing.  It really made my gut wrench a bit as I read of her horrors.  Gives me shivers to type this.  I found there to be a few parts that were a little too descriptive and long.  I was wanting to read through to the more active parts of the story.  I think that overall it was a good read, it certainly becomes personal when you can insert yourself at any given moment in a story.  As a woman, it was a smidge bothersome, but it all worked out.  It was a little different than books I am usually reading, so it was nice to break out of the norm!
