Blood to Dust by L.J. Shen ~ Review & Teaser (@lj_shen)

I do enjoy each read that I pick up by L.J. Shen, as she introduces new characters and unique worlds that you can get lost in! Blood to Dust had some dark moments, but there was no mistaking the bond between them.

His name is Beat, and I should hate him.

Bound, blindfolded and bruised, I'm tied in his basement, waiting for the men who stripped me from clothes and humanity to collect his debt to them. Me.

His name is Nate and I should hate him, but I don't.

I'm not supposed to know his real name, even worse, I'm not supposed to care. He is nothing to me but means to an end. The plan is simple: break free, collect the pieces of my broken soul, kill the bastards and run away.

His name is Nathaniel Thomas Vela, and I've never seen his face, though I hear that it's beautiful.

Behind the rugged and handsome exterior, there's a quiet murderer, a killer who thinks guns are for pussies and ends people with his bare hands.

His name doesn't matter, neither does his face, but what does matter is my heart. And right now, sadly, it's his.

Blood to Dust is a standalone, full-length novel. It contains graphic violence and adult situations some may find offensive.

This was quite a raw and gritty read as we learn about Prescott and the demons in her past that landed her into the situation that she was in. She had quite the horror past, but she was a strong and determined girl that would do anything to get her revenge on those who made her life hell.

Nate made a mistake that landed him behind bars, and in the end, under the protection of an evil man. Doing a job for him is how he managed to be Prescott’s captor, and the connection would grow between them.

It’s the dark parts of this story that sucked me in and I had to know how these two would break away and seek their revenge. They had a strong connection and grew more attached to one another the longer they were on their quest.

Some parts of the story felt a little odd and I was left confused as to why it happened, or how easy things worked for them. One show- down was quite peculiar, and I was left bewildered by the events, considering the soul searching reasons they had to be there.

Although this was not my favourite L.J. Shen read, but it will not stop me from reading her work again. She creates characters that have you wanting more and a world so addictive you cannot help but get lost in.

THese two had quite the unusual relationship, but you can't mistake the connection between them!!

“You’re beautiful,” I say breathlessly.
“You’re safe,” he answers reassuringly. Exactly what I needed to hear.
“Make peace to me, Beat.” I call him by his nickname purposely, my smile sly and cunning.
“Make fucking storm to me, Pea,” he says, doing the same.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and 
never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.
