A Slave to Clay Kindle ´ A Slave eBook ï

The feud between the Blackburns and the Whitestones began before Evrain Blackburn was ever born Raised by a violent abusive father he and his brothers grew up like soldiers trained to fight in a war they never caused Only the youngest of the Blackburn boys escaped the horror show they were born into Sent away when he was only a teenager Daniel returns home again after twenty years to find his beloved brother Evrain a broken beaten man living in a place that time forgot In a world where violence waits around every corner and Death clicks his jaws in the shadows Evrain tries to learn how to live for the first time in his life As the feud between the Blackburns and Whitestones gears up for its final showdown he and Daniel fight with one foot in the past and the other in the grave They can only hope that it is enough to see them through to the end no matter how bitter that might be

    I hesitate to leave too long a review for this because I don't want to spoil it but I'm surprised there aren't reviews on it so I'm going to give it a shot anyway Evrain is a sweet and sad character it's hard not to sympathize with and I can't even being to count the number of times I inwardly went Awww while reading this That said this isn't a light hearted story The author takes a taboo that I've seen faked entirely too often much to my disappointment Yes I am that pervert who wants the real thing Read it and you'll know what I'm talking about It's a big spoiler though and goes there I can't praise her enough for that alone because so few writers go there wherever there may be any The feud is well represented and though we don't know what caused it the things that happen are completely understandable Not forgivable maybe but relating to human nature I can see how something like this could escalate until it became such a part of the local culture and family tradition that it doesn't matter No punches are pulled there either There's violence and it's brutal and sick I want to high five the author for her ability to bring a villain to life on the page who is dead to begin with Joe was a son of a bitch and even though he was dead that did not matter The character was vivid and well developed anyway I wanted to give Evrain all the hugs poor thing I even felt bad for his older brothers who are not even really characters in the story I liked Daniel but I felt he wasn't as developed a character as Evrain was I think this is because the story isn't really about him He's in it and he's important but it's about Evrain and Evrain hasn't seen Daniel in a long time so he doesn't really know him therefore it's hard to say as a reader that I ever got to know him as a character This works for this story though in some ways because it conveys that feeling of distance and confusion about the character that Evrain feels You feel his ambivalence about his brother because the character remains unknown but you get from Evrain all of his feelings and memories about him In short I loved it
