Alexander LaFon lives a nightmare, but he deals with it. Deals with the fact that his mother abandoned him as an infant, deals with the fact that his father is never home, and deals with the fact that his older brother, Jeremiah, tortures him.

He dreams of escaping his mobile-home prison and finding a normal life. Of breaking free of his agony, finding a woman to love, becoming a teacher.

But some horrors you can never outrun. There's nowhere to hide. Some nightmares chase you in your sleep and steal your freedom like a brutal thief. Some brothers never give up and never answer why.

Note: This book contains graphic violence, non-consensual sex, child abuse, and animal cruelty.



This is labeled part one so I am ready to continue following these brothers. Now, this isn’t a typical taboo for you book. No, not in the slightest. We aren’t dealing with love at all. Not on either side. Why? Because Jeremiah (Miah) isn’t sane. See, I studied psychology and forensic psychology in school and I spent the entire time reading this profiling Jeremiah. He’s a cocktail I tell ya. He has Narcissistic Personality Disorder that carries the traits of psychopathic and Machiavellianism, toss in some sociopathy and obsession and there you have Jeremiah. 

Alexander, his younger brother by just a year is the victim. This isn’t a consensual relationship as you can imagine. From the very beginning Jeremiah has run this maniac show and Alexander has been defenseless to stop him. 

Now you can read this book one of two ways. With an open mind or without. Alexander may anger you a bit as to why he doesn’t defend himself but you’d be wrong and your anger would be misplaced. Jeremiah is far from stupid. Jeremiah is cunning, he’s methodical, he is strategic. Add that to all the diagnosis above and it would take a lot to take him down. 

Alexander runs but Jeremiah's make up doesn’t let him go and he makes it his life’s mission to find him. His obsession IS Alexander. Everyone else in the world is but filler to him, biding his time until he has his other half. No, Jeremiah can’t love he also can’t understand why he’s this way and therefore he can’t explain it to Alexander. 

It’s quite a fascinating read if you can love the psychology of it. Give it a go!
