Have you ever had a book hangover, one that lasted all day and night, the next day, week, month, even currently. Mud Vein is a total mind fuck, but an amazing mind fuck. I loved this book in so many ways that is took me this long to write this review, this long to even think about putting words to paper. I wanted to hold Senna's story to my heart forever and I think I will. The story is scary and heartbreaking and a total test to any reader. So yes, this is a five star book to me, a new favorite, one to see myself in. I have a mud vein, just like Senna, and just like Tarryn and I love having a name to put on that dark place that lives inside of me that even I couldn't put a name to. In so many ways I wanted more, but love the ending the way it is. So to Tarryn, I love you and the way your books are and never change that. Here's to Mud Vein and to this years heartbreak Marrow, I can't wait!
