Review: Perdition by Jennifer Michael!


In the eyes of a young girl with a crush, the perfect man exists.

After the events of the last year, she isn’t young or naive anymore. A brutal attack has left nothing but extreme darkness inside her that not even the people who love her the most can mend. A bus ride and a chance encounter have her shadowed path crossing with someone who nurtures the wildness within her as evil ravages her soul and a journey of self-medicating begins. Sometimes, you have to rip apart and tear away at layers of heartbreak and anguish to find a semblance of peace within the future.

Falling into a headspace so dark that there is no coming back.

Sinking into choices so self-destructive that her body, heart, and soul might never heal.

Spiraling down until she becomes her own worst enemy, inflicting further pain.

Pure evil takes away everything that makes her who she is. Cold touches from the hands of strangers and comfort in the form of injecting numbness straight into her veins can’t help her escape. Forget teetering on the edge of the wreckage.

She’s welcoming, inviting, seeking.

Nothing is ever perfect, and the same can be said here.

This is Teagan Hensley's story.

Perdition deals with heavy topics of violence and emotional distress. The graphic scenes and the followup are intense and dark. Caution is strongly advised for those sensitive to physical and sexual violence, drug use, and depression. Strong language is also used throughout the story. You've been advised.

While I am not the biggest fan of dark romance, this is one of my all-time favorite series and while I'm sad to see it come to its close, the ride it took me on was everything I could have hoped for and more. The writing is absolutely captivating and vivid, you get hooked into these characters lives before you know it. It's because of her amazing writing and storytelling ability that I'll read anything she writes. 

Though this novel definitely has some pretty dark moments, there is also a sense of hopefulness present. A sense that things will get better after the storm that's raging has passed. The ending was well worth everything that happened within the story. Teagan and Kai's romance is to die for. Can you say new book boyfriend? I have been rooting for their passionate, forbidden romance since book one and the wait was well worth it. 

If you want a dark love story that will chew you up and spit you out after taking you on a roller coaster of emotion and drama, this is the story for you. Definitely start with book one, Deceit in Bloom first! 

Fans of dark romance will love this series and romance lovers looking to branch out and try something new should give these books a try! You might fall in love with them like I did.
