Where am I?

Days bleed into one another and I know that IÔÇÖm trapped. A prisoner.

But why?

I have no answers and no one to give them to me. Only the silence and the dark.

Except for the song.
The words tell a story that I wish I could forget.

About a girl who didnÔÇÖt run fast enough.

A forgotten girl
A lost girl
A girl no one would miss

*This is PART ONE of a three part series***

Some books screw with your head. They break you and have your heart hanging on by a thread. And they make it nearly impossible to write a review that does them justice.

The Missing Volume One – Illusions by A. Meredith Walters writing as A.M. Irvin is one of those books.

I have no idea how to review it without giving anything away. But what makes it a bit easier is that even after I finished the book, I still have no clue what’s really going on. I’m still in the dark. I can say this though: Read this brilliantly written story.

Read it to be transported into the twisted, scary life of Nora Gilbert. A girl, who wakes up in a dark basement – kidnapped and held prisoner. While she tries to figure out what happened, we learn more about her personality as well as her childhood and her life prior to the kidnapping. She had an awful, cold childhood. A life that makes you feel sorry for her. Unloved, uncared for, neglected. Or was she?

I can’t wait to find out. What I’m sure of is that there is more to Nora than what she has shown us so far.

I’m on the edge of my seat biting my nails until the second book. Although I’m sure I’ll need those two weeks to recover from the emotional beating I took reading Nora’s story.

It was intelligent, haunting, beautiful, brutal in its honesty and ugly. It was f*****g perfect.

5+ screwing-with-my-mind stars.
