When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.

Honoring the wishes for a spoiler free review and writing a review about Sick Fux by Tillie Cole is a feature that is almost impossible.
So I might go with stating some facts…
This is a book unlike any I have ever read
It is dark – in fact it might be darkest book I have ever read
Usually I read semi dark books but only when I trust the author – if there is even a genre like that – I read several of Tillie and they are not sunshine and roses but this one is far beyond them
Did I mention I have NEVER read anything like it ?
Lovers of Tillie’s writing style will find her remarkable plotting combined with something I would have never expected – but let’s be real I should have been warned because she was clear enough about her intention of making this dark.
//QUOTING// Do NOT read this novel if you have issues with violence (really inventive acts of violence), taboo topics (yes, this book goes down some seriously interesting routes), and an (un)healthy dose of effed-up-ness (yes, I invented this word just to help make this point!).
Our main couple are off the charts crazy. The story will have your jaws dropping and you shouting, “WHAT THE EFF????” frequently at your kindle/paperback’s page.//UNQUOTE//
PLEASE if you love your sanity and if you would like your mind to be untouched by an overwhelming amount of well developed and super written crazy STAY AWAY FROM THIS STORY … the author is NOT KIDDING
I found myself open mouthed and staring at the pages at several occasions while the story unfolded in front of myself
And wondering if we will hear again form these characters
All you fairytales out in the world you should be scared of this author gets her hands on you
I went down the rabbit hole and I think I crawled out mostly intact but only because I was prepared as I kind of guessed what this author is capable off
Why not 5 stars ? …. Well the 5 star for me is the “feel” star and while this story is full and overwhelming in its details – I did not feel enough for this 5ths star… maybe because I did not want my emotions to get to close to the ever-present CRAZY that was lurking in all the corners ? Or maybe the crazy was really to overwhelming so that the emotions I needed were drowned I can not be sure
But the fact remains that lovers of Dark will devour this book and most probably not even blink an eye before trying to find a 6 star for the uniqueness of the story alone.
