About the Author

Kyrian Lyndon is the author of Shattering Truths, the first book in her Deadly Veils series. She has also published two poetry collections, A Dark Rose Blooms, and Remnants of Severed Chains. Kyrian began writing short stories and fairy tales when she was just eight years old. In her adolescence, she moved on to poetry. At sixteen, while working as an editor for her high school newspaper, she wrote her first novel, and then completed two more novels at the ages of nineteen and twenty-five. She is forthcoming about being a person with many years of recovery, as well as a trauma survivor. Throughout her journeys, she expressed her thoughts through poetry, embracing every challenge to triumph over adversity. In her conviction that learning, growing, healing, and evolving is a never-ending process, she remains as grateful for the dark days as she is for every flicker of hope and light. She considers herself a cheerleader for those trudging on against all odds in the hopes of living their dreams. Born and raised in Woodside, Queens, New York, Kyrian was the middle of three daughters born to immigrants --her father from Campochiaro, Italy; her mother from Havana, Cuba. She has worked primarily in executive-level administrative positions with major New York publishing companies. Kyrian loves nineteenth-century British literature, parallel universe fiction, and dark romanticism. She also enjoys music, art, history, fitness, and cooking.

Danielle and her cousin, Angie, are spending the day at the beach. They meet two strangers who convince the two girls to come with them. Drugged and sexually assaulted, Danielle is the only one who remembers. When she tries to convince her cousin what happened to them both, Angie has no recollection and Danielle starts to question her own sanity. Did it really happen or did she imagine the whole nightmarish event? And who is stalking her in the dark sedan? The more she uncovers, the more isolated Danielle feels. She has a choice: sink into a pit of guilt and despair or gather inner strength to deal with what’s happening to her. Which path will she choose? Shattering Truths is a dark, disturbing suspense that showcases the emotional turmoil a victim of sexual assault feels. I related instantly with Danielle and while she didn’t make the smartest decisions, she’s honestly portrayed. Her family dynamics made me cringe and at times, I wanted to wring their necks. Their lack of support angered me and I think that’s what the author intended. Well-written with a strong character arc for Danielle, I found the narration a bit shocking. The transitions need to be smoother as I got lost a few times. While this is a young adult, I know both teens and adults will enjoy this book. Fans of 13 Reasons Why will devour this book! Favorite Character/Quote: What had those vile creatures unleashed in me? What beast had they awakened? My Rating: 4 stars

Shattering Truths is the first book in the Deadly Veils series, and details the events of a sixteen-year-old girl called Danielle. Together with her cousin, she is drugged and sexually assaulted. However, her cousin can't remember anything, so Dani is forced to deal with it by herself. It doesn't help that the two men are harassing her by parking near her home and phone calls. The story tells you how she copes with what life is throwing at her, the friendships she makes, and the decisions she has to make. Whilst the story is a good one, it gets lost in Danielle's memories and loses some of its impact. There is no clear definition between her 'talking' right now and memories of her past. It changes suddenly, sometimes a memory is thrown into the middle of a conversation that she is having with someone. I understand that the history is important to the story, but this just made it feel a bit jerky. With an abundance of characters who all have their own stories to tell, there is a lot going on in this book. This is a good story, it just felt a bit muddled to me. If you are looking for a literary piece of work, with no romance, then I can definitely recommend this book. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
