In the Lithium Chronicles Volume Two, we see the raw and the real of Nicole Lyons, absolutely nothing is sugarcoated. Her words draw you in with imagery so vivid it feels like you are there in the thick of it with her, in every piece she writes feeling everything she felt, and then she guts you in an amazing way. Nicole Lyons is incredibly talented, and The Lithium Chronicles Volume Two truly moved me.

Nicole Lyons makes me fall in love with all the darkest parts of myself that I once despised. She leaves no room for error, enabling me to look right into the heart of myself with the clearest of vision, and to ever so gently swim my way through her words that ultimately lead me back to who I am.

Nicole Lyons weaves a seductive and truthful web of words that are impossible to run from. From pain, to pleasure, to absolute strength and power, this collection of poetry is a raw and honest example of how pain can leave us better than it found us.

There’s no greater feeling as a reader than when you connect to a writer’s words. The Lithium Chronicles Vol. 2 does just that. Nicole Lyons always seems to pull you in with her poetry and prose. If you want real, honest, powerful writing, it’s here on the pages where Nicole has so willingly bled her words.
- Jay Long, Timeless Chatter
There’s a visceral raw energy to Lyons work that speaks of magic, nature, humanity and suffering as well as always, hope and beauty. The gift of grafting both extremes may come from her battle with light and darkness. She is a woman who cannot do things in halves. She must either burn out entirely or not at all. There is no fade in this poet, she’s not middling, if you see the trees alight, it’s she who’s torched the forest.
