I won this book in a Giveaway here on Goodreads and my review is my honest opinion about the book.

This poetry book was a quick read with a lot of interesting poems. Most of they poems invoked a sense of hopelessness and at times a sense of dread.

These poems are not usually the type that I usually read but there were quite a few that I identified with or that I could reflect that it reminded me of some situations in my past.

Would recommend to anyone that enjoys poetry.

I read this in one sitting and will definitely be giving it a second read. A beautifully crafted collection of poems written with lots of powerful and descriptive imagery. I loved the flow of this collection when read from start to finish.
