When an altercation outside of a performance venue nearly proves fatal, Brandon Chane begins to realize how far his life is spinning out of control. His efforts to channel his pain, frustration and thwarted loves into his music may not suffice to save him. Then he meets Saul, a crisis counselor with the soul of an ancient medicine man, and a far-reaching journey of healing - one that may teach him how to steer away from the very edge of the abyss - begins.
To the people who are turned off by the cover:
I will admit that I signed up to review this book and read it before I actually saw the cover. It is the most unappealing part of the whole book, and I want you to know that you are missing out by turning away from this book because of it.
I had no idea what to expect when I started this book, but it was nothing like what I read.
The main character, Brandon, is dealing with a lot. I think the author did a pretty great job helping the reader connect with him. He makes a great example of why not to judge someone for their appearance. While reading this story, I couldn't help associating Brandon with a friend of mine from high school. They are both very similar. It was probably for that reason why I felt so drawn to him.
There were a few parts that felt a bit repetitive and wordy, but other than those I really enjoyed this book.
