The title, Fade to Black, is catchy, poetic. I might have passed this book up, however, because the title suggests a slide into personal tragedy. I was pleasantly surprised that even though the main characters suffer, this is a story of how damaged people struggle to overcome immense pressures rather than wallow in defeat. Enough decent people with inner strength exist to lift the story from the dregs of depression.

From Page One, we are pulling for Piper, the female protagonist. She is damaged when at age eleven her father dies and her mother and her mother's boyfriend brutalize her. The sickening incidents are narrated rather than shown as detailed scenes, for which I am grateful. Physically she escapes. Mentally she struggles to overcome the ruin of her sense of self worth.

Then there is Ryan, the male protagonist. He realizes his dream to become a movie star, only to discover that fame is hell. How can he escape his fans who are deadly in their devotion.

Ryan suffers from too much adoration; Piper suffers from too much hate. Both are driven to apparent self-destruction in their efforts to survive. They are self medicating by seeking refuge in drugs, alcohol, or self mutilation as a way toward normalcy. Salvation comes in the form of good relationships. Solid friends and relatives help to guide Ryan and Piper to wholesome living. One of several who help Piper is my favorite character, Nana, who is wise and compassionate, the kind of person I like to emulate.

Eventually Piper and Ryan have each other. The detailed sex scene between Piper and Ryan is a contrast to the narrative that glosses over most of the story.

The narrative quickens the pace, so the story never stalls.

Like it says, it is NOT for younger readers...Honestly, I downloaded the book last night and I can tell you, the first few chapters are hard to read, because of what "Piper" went through, but MAN!!!! I couldn't put it down! I made myself go to bed at 2:30 this morning, and then picked my Nook back up after the kids went to school at 8:00am. Just finished reading it a couple of hours ago. I really enjoyed the book and I can't WAIT to read more!

This is a highly enjoyable read, I loved the way this author knows how to stimulate emotions in her readers. Piper suffers abuse at the hands of her mother who should have been protecting her. Since then she tries to heal even though she feels "diseased" and unworthy.

Evil intervenes again in her life setting her on a course of abuse once again. However, life has a way of making its own miracles and she finds herself fighting for her loved ones, can Piper survive the odds against her?

A hugely gripping read and I would have awarded 5 stars if it had been proof read and typos and grammar corrected.

Full of gripping emotion and heart pounding fear, if not for the cliffhanger ending, I would have given it more stars.

A gripping tale of a women is torn from a normal life and life placed in bondage and despair. how can one survive so many atrocities and despair. A gripping journey to the end. An epic tale I will follow through each trilogy!

I am not big on reading books other than biographies. But this one by far, takes the cake and has changed my perspective on what kind of books to read. If you love suspense, love, and drama....this is the book for you. Even if you don't, I guarantee you will fall in love with this book and won't be able to put it down. I can not wait till the second book comes out!!!

I tend to not read books that have emotional content. Normally when I read it is to lose myself in a happy romance novel, or a naughty erotica, to escape from my crappy life. That being said, I am so glad I decided to read this book. It was very emotional but so well thought out that it made you connect in every way with all the main characters. It makes you realize that no matter what you are going through, no matter how bad it gets, you can change it. It can get better.

As an avid reader, and self-proclaimed grammar Nazi, I do have to point out that there were quite a few grammatical errors and misspelled words. I had to re-read a few sentences for them to make sense. I don't know why this keeps being such and issue for authors now, there are proof-readers, editors, and hell, SPELL CHECK! But, even still, this book was such an amazing story, that those errors were easily forgotten. I have given myself a migraine staying well into the wee hours of the morning reading this book.

I completely recommend this book... and maybe a box or two of tissues... you will need them.

I liked this book a lot. I didn't want to put it down until I finished it. It is told from different viewpoints and has a wonderful plot. I would recommend this book as a good read.
