Review: Shattering Truths (Deadly Veils #1) by Kyrian Lyndon

BLURB
She was left fighting her demons alone . . .
For sixteen-year-old Danielle DeCorso, the old house in Glastonbury was an eerie place to grow up. Coping with mental health challenges exacerbated by a traumatic family dynamic, Danielle watches from the window for two men in a dusty black sedan who keep circling the house and harassing her with phone calls. The two predators drugged her and her cousin, Angie, and then lured them from Pleasure Beach in Bridgeport to a secluded cottage on Long Beach West. She remembers feeling dizzy, the room spinning. She recalls screaming, crying, fighting, and then slipping in and out of consciousness. Angie, however, has no recollection of the incident.

When Danielle attempts to jog Angie’s memory and convince their best friend, Farran, that the two strangers had victimized them, no one seems to believe her. Alone in her pain, Danielle remains guarded, obsessed, and withdrawn. Soon she is sinking deeper into a tumultuous world of adolescent isolation and change. Grief, guilt, and anger send her spiraling into an even darker place.

Tormented by terrifying nightmares, she fears she will lose her sanity, or possibly her soul. Is she having post-traumatic stress hallucinations, as one of her friends suggest, or are her recurring nightmares as real as they seem? Trapped in an unyielding emotional bondage, Danielle continues the fight to reclaim her power. Startling revelations awaken her newfound spirit, inspiring a once naïve girl to grow into a woman of defiance and courage.

Shattering Truths is a revised edition of Deadly Veils Book One, previously published by Kyrian Lyndon in 2016 under the title Provenance of Bondage. The previous edition is no longer available.

Shattering Truths is the first book in the Deadly Veils series and it's full of surprises. Suspense is not my usual genre, I am more of a romance person but I was unable to put down the book once I started. I mean just by reading the blurb you come to know that this one is going to be different and it definitely was.

This story, while not for the faint of heart, is about one young woman's path to healing from trauma. This is a story of a girl who overcomes a traumatic incident by fighting her own inner demons. This is not you teenage love story, this is much more! 

This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat, pulling my hair and biting my nails. This book played with my mind. There came a point when I wanted to smack my head into the wall and then I wanted to cry. So yes, this book frustrated the hell outta me. This one was a true bookish emotional roller coaster ride for me.

The story revolves around Danielle, a 16 years old girl, who is left to fight her demons alone after a traumatic incident. Danielle believes that she and her cousin Angie were drugged and sexually harassed by two strangers while they were spending a day at a beach. She remembers bits and pieces of what happened but Angie is completely clueless, she has no recollection which leaves Danielle questioning her own sanity.

Did it really happen or was it just a hallucination?

Danielle's family is a bipolar mess which is making her lose her damn mind, her brothers are more complicated than she realised, and last but not the least she has a stalker following her in a dark Sedan. So all in all life is fucked up. 

As the story moves ahead, Danielle finds herself sinking in her sorrows and withdrawing herself from everything and everyone. But is everything what it seems it is or is there something else lurking behind the shadows? Will she lose her sanity or fight to discover the truth?
