Have you ever sunk inside yourself to a place of darkness so deep you couldn’t see the light? Had no hope? Felt completely alone in a world filled with so many people?
I have. I’ve lived it, breathed it.
Because life hated me.
It disliked me from the moment of conception, despised me when I was born, loathed me when I bounced from each foster home, and kicked me in the gut when I watched the one thing that meant everything to me leave.
For years, I drifted, unable to find my footing, never knowing what the word stable meant. Then a single moment in time rocked me to my core, changing me and making that solid ground I so desperately craved crumble at my feet, causing me to fall farther than I’d ever imagined.
The darkness of the swirling tornado that is depression captured me, pulling me down to its depths, drowning me, suffocating me, owning me.
A depth so deep, I didn’t think I’d survive and didn’t care if I did. I only wanted peace. I wanted the pain to disappear. I wanted to be … free.
Needing to fall into the cyclone of darkness was the only way I could find the light.
**Warning: This book covers many tough issues—including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and abuse. It is a very highly charged, emotional read. 18+ Only. Please note: depression, PSTD, and other issues covered in this book take different lengths of time to combat—some take a lifetime. In this book, time is skewed and sped up to flow with the story line.**
I usually don't like books that involve depression.
But in this case, I really liked Needing to Fall more than I thought I would.
Needing to Fall was wrote beautifully. Ryan done a perfect job of writing these characters. She done them justice.
I honestly loved watching Reign and Lynx fall for one another and to face their own personal hells. Lynx was perfect for Reign.
I really liked the secondary characters as well. And I actually mean Reign's family. I'm not say any thing else cause of spoilers. But they are one of the reasons why I loved this book so much.
I honestly don't have anything bad to say about the book. I really enjoyed it and I'm not one that usually likes books about depression or anything like that. Ryan done a fantastic job with this book. You felt everything Reign was going through while reading this, and to me that takes true talent. Talent that obviously Ryan has. I'm not usually one that gets emotional over a book like this. The only Time i do usually is like when a character dies or something.
