My Own Nightmare (Shattered Lives Series, #1) by Barb Shuler

My Own Nightmare - Barb Shuler




One night a life changed. My life. I used to write about chaos – about lives turning on a dime. Never once did I think it would ever happen to me. I went from a blossoming career to a prisoner in the span of a single evening. A living nightmare I was determined to escape. The price of evil was high, but I wasn’t backing down. I knew in my heart the men in my life would be looking. I just had to survive. One day at a time. Minutes turned to hours. Hours turned into days. Then, it was time to make a choice. Live or Die? I chose to live. Hell hath no fury and I had no more time...



my though


This book is defiantly not for the weak-minded. It has some graphic scenes about abuse and sexual abuse. I know that can bother some people. Being a debut novel it was really good and I enjoyed this book. World building was great and so were characters, there had a great development and a great backstory, so you knew what was going on. It often went back and forth, between retelling the past and the current time frame. But it was well done and did not get confusing, it helped a lot to know some of the past events. Overall I really enjoyed this book….it was a wild thrilling ride, with some surprising twists and turns and some really shocking reveals. Some of it seemed a bit rushed and also some of the snark seemed forced. But not enough to make it a bad book. No, it was a great first book and I look forward to seeing more from Barb Shuler.

I rate it 3★
