I admit that I’m a big romance fan but reading the same old clichéd storylines over and over again tends to get old sometimes. Trust me, it really does. So I go through different phases, depending on my mood, just like most readers I believe. Also, indulging in too much sweetness isn’t so healthy for the brain that is why I would usually go for meatier content every so often.
Now, what makes me so excited about Here Lies Love is that it’s definitely different. It’s a YA/NA thriller by Dan Thompson and I’m quite curious about this genre. I mean, I do love to read thrillers and I obviously love New Adult so I’m looking forward to seeing the outcome.
But since we have to wait a little bit for its release this coming April 2014, here is a special preview of its gorgeous cover which I personally love. It’s the kind of cover that can immediately catch someone’s attention, and It also means that the author put a lot of thought into the whole process. I really appreciate that. What do YOU think?
When she is sold by her father, Abbey discovers that nightmares can occur when you’re awake. Trapped inside a wooden cage, Abbey is forced to listen to the horrors and atrocities above; time ticking down until it is her turn. But Abbey isn’t prepared to become a victim; she will escape.
Although, what Abbey isn’t prepared for, is how harsh and unfair the world can be. With the sun turning its back on humanity long ago, life gives no opportunity.

Haunted by the unpleasant memories bestowed upon her only nurtures Abbey’s paranoia, until she realises that to truly live in the world, she must confront the person who was responsible for her misfortune – her father.
Here Lies Love is a tale of actuality, of facing up to the fact that love comes in many guises. Can Abbey find the one glimmer of hope or will she be overcome with the darkness of revenge? Here Lies Love is coming April 2014.
