TITLE: Path of Destruction
AUTHOR: Cara Dee
Do yourself a favour, put down whatever it is that you’re reading right now and go pick up Cara Dee’s new book Path of Destruction! This amazingly talented author has outdone herself with this intense story. Characters so vivid and so achingly damaged that you feel invested right off the bat. Story of rock and roll and every vice that comes with the territory, interwoven with aches and pains of a traumatizing past and a discouraging state of post survival, will literally have you in its grips from the get go . Stories interlaced within one another, each elemental to understanding the other, but also so different from each other that could almost be stand alones. This brilliant writer has not only caught the exact atmosphere of this era but perhaps even more importantly the aftermath of living in a bubble, outside of reality.
Our main characters Lincoln, former rockstar now prisoner due to a series of bad decision and Adeline, a young girl with an excruciating past determined to escape reality through drugs but turned into a responsible adult because she has children to take care of are not your typical romantic heros. The hardships that they are facing to survive, and their desperate need for each other, is just agonizing to witness and makes the reader desperate to help them out. There are no black and white characters in this book perhaps making it easier to identify with them. These characters have faults, they mess up and make mistakes like the rest of us but what redeems them in the end is their passion and devotion to one another, perhaps not showcased in the most traditional way but glaringly apparent nonetheless. I found this story riveting, touching and of course hot! Which isn’t at all surprising considering who the writer is. I strongly recommend this book, you will not be able to put it down, nor will you be able to forget these characters anytime soon. Go pick up your copy right now!
