The deadliest secrets are the ones we keep from ourselves...
One year ago, seventeen-year-old Marayah Freeman nearly died in a tragic car accident that also took the life of her best friend, Hailey.
Memories of the accident plague Marayah, but no one believes they're real. They say there was no shadowy figure on the bridge that night. No oil-black tears running down Hailey's face. No guy who appeared from a bright light in the forest.
Frustrated, Marayah locks those memories away and tries to focus on the future, but the past keeps pulling her back. A guy who looks like the stranger from the forest enrolls in her school, and her nightmares are getting worse. But when she finds a note in her locker, the mystery of the accident becomes more terrifying than ever. The note is from Hailey.
If I'm dead--
it wasn't an accident."

Really loved it enjoyed it can't wait for more
I received an ARC for an honest review. Sarra Cannon does it again. I have been a fan of her books for a long time now and she has never disappointed. She has a way of writing that just draws you into the story. You are living every event along with the characters. I couldn't put this book down and look forward to reading the rest of them.
Sarra Cannon has made another great series starter. Deep Dark Series is book 1 of what is supposed to be The Spiritwalker trilogy. The book starts off with the protagonist, Marayah, leaving a physical rehab hospital after a tragic accident. Marayah has some memory loss and doesn't know if what she see in her dreams is what actually happened during the wreck or if it's all in her head. Marayah tries to restart her life by going back into her Senior year of high school. After such a tragic event it is a hard transition for her. Marayah starts to realize that maybe there was other forces in the world that caused her accident. She wants to get to the bottom of it before these other forces take her too. This book has suspense and mystery. It keeps you interested until the end. Can't wait for book 2!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Sarra did it again. It's been a while since I read anything of hers, because I finished the current books in the Shadow Demons Saga a while ago. When I started on this one, however, it made me realize just how good her writing is. There's something about her books that I can't quite put my finger on, that makes them so suspenseful. Deep Dark Secrets wasn't a very long book, but there was just so much information packed in to make up for that. Every action, even if it was something as simple as eating breakfast or picking clothes, was seemed incredibly meaningful, and there was a constant sense of foreboding that lingered over me as I read this book. Was the suspense worth it? Absolutely. Like I've mentioned in another review, despite the light-vs-dark trope in this one, there's something dark about the atmosphere of Sarra's books, even though they're completely T-rated. The suspense released in bursts throughout the second half of the book, and resulted in multiple climaxes of varying degrees of horror. I also have to give Sarra credit - as far as I can tell, she managed to capture Marayah's post traumatic behavior in a completely realistic manner. I never felt as though any part of her character development was forced, and I appreciate the way in which her anxiety and depression interact with the magic world realistically. Overall, as usual, the book sucked me in. I can't wait for the next book!
From beginning to end you have no clue what the story is actually about. Once everything is revealed the villain is not that obvious. I loved it, it doesn't start out slow like some stories either.
Amazing read. Captivating from start to end. Sarra is an amzing writer, and always delivers her heart and soul in her writing.
