“When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her thirty-third birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken. If she wants her freedom, she has to take a close look at her past. But, her past has a heartbeat… and her kidnapper is nowhere to be found. With her survival hanging by a thread, Senna soon realizes this is a game. A dangerous one. Only the truth can set her free.”

It took me a couple of days to write a review on Mud Vein because woah! I have no words but FANTASTIC! The story is not your typical romance or fairytale-love kind of story. It is different. It is it. It is Senna’s and Isaac’s. What I would tell you all is this:


I never viewed carousel the same way again after reading Mud Vein. Why? Read the book to know.

I will never put my 100% trust to doctors again after reading Mud Vein. Why? Read the book.

Tarryn Fisher has a very good writing style. She lets you get lost in the story and writes honestly. You can see the realities depicted in her story.

The storyline is not predictable. No boring parts. A page-flipper. Unique. And doesn’t cater a typical ending that you usually read from other NA’s.

Senna Richards is damaged and aloof. She doesn’t have friends and doesn’t need any. Though she is damaged because of her past experiences, she does not want to be fixed. She likes darkness, pain and damages. She is comfortable on what she currently is. People are like this. Though we tell ourselves that we will settle from okay or from what we are now, deep inside we still long for someone or a circumstance to help us fix who we are and live a normal life.

Issac Asterholder came to Senna’s life in an attempt to save her by loving her selflessly and honestly. He is not asking for anything in return but just to serve his purpose. That is, to take Senna away from the darkness and be her truth. To let her see that there is still beauty in a life which you thought could not be fixed.

Mud Vein is exceptional and I love it!

“Love doesn’t leave. It bears all things.”
