I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Horror is Odessa ÔÇ£OpieÔÇØ PowysÔÇÖs truth.
One with muddied memories and haunted dreams.
Finding and putting the pieces of her shattered life together is impossible.Hiding herself and her truth is the only option.
Until the force that is Deo Dahl notices her from across a crowded bar.
Not one to back down from a challenge, Deo pulls the seemingly shy Opie out of her comfort zone, arousing courage inside her to not only face her abhorrent demons, but to also hunt them down.
However, Deo has horrors of his own, evil heÔÇÖs fought to conquer his whole life. Just as they begin to reveal their truths, OpieÔÇÖs past returns, turning DeoÔÇÖs nightmare into a reality he might not survive.
Ever since I read book one in Kelli JeanÔÇÖs ÔÇ£Ten Thousand SeriesÔÇØ IÔÇÖve been a huge fan. Having starting this by chance and recommendation, I didnÔÇÖt expect to love it this much. But with Ten Thousand Truths Kelli Jean has written herself into my Top Reads of 2016. I canÔÇÖt not love a book I stayed up until 3am to finish because I just could not put it down.
Opie has been through some horrific circumstances in her life. Yet, instead of letting her past cripple her, she rises above her past and becomes stronger for it, ultimately. Unfortunately, she doesnÔÇÖt recognize her inner strength and beauty for a long time. Thinking herself too broken, she hides away behind her plants. Until Deo Dahl comes back into her life.
WeÔÇÖve all met Deo before as XantheÔÇÖs ex-boyfriend. Yet, IÔÇÖm happy to say that heÔÇÖs so much more to me now than that. Deo, just like Opie, has gone through some fucked up shit in his life, and heÔÇÖs also done some shit himself. Yet, after everything he went through, and while it might have broken himÔÇöthe demons never leavingÔÇöhis love for Opie gave him strength to pull through.
I loved Deo and Opie, individually and as a couple. They both are strong and stubborn, but together they are indestructible. They might be bruised and dented, but never to be broken beyond repair. With complexity and depth to her characters, Kelli Jean gave us a story which proves to us that sometimes love is strong enough to heal you and keep you from the abyss. While being true and honest to her characters, she also takes great care with the subject matter. The book, as well as the whole series, is filled with characters who are real and relatable.
The storylineÔÇöintriguing, shocking, and unpredictableÔÇöis filled with beautiful characters and words who will make you cry, laugh, and rejoice. The spectacular writing in this story made me enjoy it even more. The wordsÔÇösometimes beautiful in their simplicityÔÇödraw you into the story, holding you hostage.
Ten Thousand Truths is a story of love strong enough to overcome the most horrific circumstances, of healing, and of accepting oneÔÇÖs past. This is probably my favorite of the series, until the next one is being released. I canÔÇÖt recommend Kelli Jean and her books enough. Top Reads for me all around.
