Synopsis

When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her thirty-third birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken. If she wants her freedom, she has to take a close look at her past. But, her past has a heartbeat…and her kidnapper is nowhere to be found. 

With her survival hanging by a thread, Senna soon realizes this is a game. A dangerous one. Only the truth can set her free.

My Review

I don't think my brain has ever worked harder, but at the same time it felt effortless. So many thoughts. So many emotions. I impossibly invested myself into a story while the receeses of my mind never stopped questioning, theorizing….searching. Tarryn Fisher has found a way to tap into a dormant part of the brain allowing it to concomitantly function at an intensified level. A part of the brain that is devoid of all emotion yet at the same time a place that is created by feeling. Feeling too much.

Some reviews summarize the plot. You won't find that here. You will do yourself a disservice entering this experience with anything but a clean slate allowing your head and heart to be a blank canvas later to be painted by tears and emotion. Go in blind and find sight by experiencing the words. Mud Vein will crush every emotion you have into tiny pieces just to create new ones.


This book is one of the most honest things I've ever read. It explores the dark side of love, the true side of love.


"What's the difference?" I asked him. "Between the love of your life, and your soulmate?"
"One is a choice, and one is not."


Everyone will experience this book in a different way. Some may experience nothing but the superficial layers of the story while others will strip each coat away discovering not only pieces of the characters, but pieces of themselves. There is no right or wrong here. It's not about what the words mean, but that you find meaning in them. This book is psychologically fascinating because it is brilliantly written in a way that can be diversely interpreted. My advice to you, look deeper. The words continuously evolve, and will speak to you differently each time you read them.


Don't be so worried about loving this book. Focus on feeling this book. Let all your conflicting emotions be united by Mud Vein.


The hardest part will be letting go. I can still hear this book silently echoing in my thoughts…consuming


"Your silence, Senna, I hear it so loudly….I hear you still."


It is time for you to listen.


READ ON!

You don’t have to be alone. We are mostly born that way though. We grow up being nurtured to believe that the other half of our soul is somewhere out there.  And since there are seven billion people inhabiting our planet, chances are one of them is for you. To find that person, to find your soul piece, or your great love we must count on our paths diverging, the tangling of lives, the soft whispering of one soul recognizing another. 
I found my piece. She wasn’t what I was expecting. If you formed a woman’s soul out of black graphite, bathed it in blood, and then rolled it around in the softest rose petals, you still wouldn’t have touched on the complication that was, my match. 

Tarryn's Bio
I am a real life villain, truly. I drink sick amounts of Starbucks. Most of the time my hair smells like coffee. I was born in South Africa, and lived there for most of my childhood. I moved to Seattle just for the rain. Rome is my favorite place in the world so far, Paris comes in at a close second. I read and write more than I sleep. When I was eleven, I wrote an entire novel about runaway orphans, using only purple ink. I am addicted to Florence and the Machine and will travel to see concerts. I love scary movies and giraffes. I spend way too much time on Facebook. Meet you there?…
