Yes, that’s really my name.
The irony is not lost on me.
I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.
Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.
And why would I want to?
One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be clean from its murky hue.
No matter what they try to tell me happened in my past, my mind denies me access, therefore how can I know it’s true?
How can I believe that’s what I’m born from?
Glimpses of my past haunt me, the screams of terror echo in the silent darkness of my memories, trying to remind me that my Mother went from room to room butchering our family.
I’ve learned from scars that I suffered abuse and that my Father and siblings weren’t my Mother’s only victims.
Hearing what they tell me.
Reading the words printed in the papers. None of it can prepare me for what’s to come.
My biggest lesson is learning that some memories we suppress for a reason.

And I had a thousand livesA thousand hearts that beatI would find herLove herChoose her.”Beneath the darkness this is one of the most beautiful love stories that I have read in quite some time. This is about two souls that are connected on so many levels. Don’t get me wrong. This. Is. A. Dark. Book. But it’s also a mind-trip and most, if not all, of the subject matter is very disturbing.I hated putting the book down and couldn’t wait to pick it back up so I could continue to be immersed into Evi’s tortured existence.
