Fiction, Dark Romance
August 4th 2015
They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. They lie. For 21 days she held on. But on Day 22, she would have given anything for the sweet slumber of death. Because on Day 22, she realizes that her only way out means certain death for one of the two men she loves.
A haunting tale of passion, loss, and redemption, The Paper Swan is a darkly intense yet heartwarming love story, textured with grit, intrigue, and suspense. Please note: This is NOT a love triangle.
A full-length, standalone novel, intended for mature audiences due to violence, sex and language. Subject matter may be disturbing for some readers.
➦This book has a kidnapping trope and is definitely dark but not overly so. It focuses more on psychological and emotional aspects, I suppose, rather than descriptions of graphic violent scenes. I kind of appreciated that, because I’m not a huge fan of super dark and twisted.
➦There is a pretty interesting back story involving two main characters and the book jumps between the past and the present. I very much enjoy stories with the flashbacks from the past because I do so lurve good character development. This was my second book by Leylah Attar and her writing continues to surprise and… please me. Ok, that sounded creepy. lol
