I received this book from Bayou Brew Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
Where to start? I guess I should start with, I'm not big on books filled with poetry. Regardless of the type of poetry it is.
Ash X'Connor has laid her heart on every page of this book. The poetry is raw and uncensored and will stir up quite a few memories in the reader who undoubtedly has gone through similar things that this author has.
Even if I'm not a fan or poetry, I am a huge fan of truth. There's nothing truer than a heart that's been used, battered and bruised.
The poems are a far cry from the normal sonets and odes that sing of love's true touch, these dark pieces speak of the aftermath that consumes the human heart and soul after the sun fades and the clouds move in.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes real poetry, to anyone who's gone through heartbreak, and to all who have survived it.
I did spot a handful of errors. They aren't major barely noticeable but most already know I have a hawkeye for errors.
I give this book 3 of 5 paws
