Emma Hart
Lash (Lash #1) - Tara Fox Hall Everyone has a story – even a violent killer weresnake. Trystan is a young boy living with his mother and brother in the swamps of early 20th century America. Trying to make a better life for themselves the weresnake family move to work in a hotel and bit by bit life begins to improve. Trystan’s father who has been absent since before his birth finds them, and he is now very wealthy and prominent in society. With his new found wealth and status the girl Trystan loves agrees to marry him. Then everything starts to go wrong. A heart-breaking story of what the loss of those you care for can do and the lengths one man will go to for revenge.Tara Fox Hall has written a truly outstanding book. Lash was a shockingly beautiful and emotional tale of heartbreak, loss, revenge and violence. Set in the early 20th century the author interweaves the issues and prejudices of the time such as class, skin colour and the way women are treated with an amazing tale of a man who is clearly desperate for love even if he himself doesn’t know it. The paranormal aspect of this book was incredible with a rich lore of the characters. Trystan was a lovable character despite some of the atrocities he commits. The pure love he shows his family and those that he cares for is beautiful, as is his perseverance no matter what struggles life throws at him. This is a truly remarkable book and a definite must read. reviewed for readers favourite
