If there’s one thing Madison Lukas understands, it’s pain. The pain she feels when her mother ignores her completely. The pain her best friend endures as her parents starve her as punishment. The pain of a dangerous boy whose mother has to be carried away by law enforcement on a regular basis.
She gets it. She feels the pain of others as if it were her own.
But when a mysterious man claiming to be her long lost brother appears with promises of relieving her suffering, trusting him could reveal more truths than Madison is ready for. Because the truth can hurt, too.

T's Review of
Love in Darkness (Shattered Castles)
Love in Darkness is book two in this series. You do not have to have read book one as they flash back and you get the gist of it. Alex and Madison have been separated for two years. Each fulfilling mission trips for their Mormon church. Within weeks of their reunion Alex suffers his first psychotic break down. Delaying the reunion and forcing Alex to take a look at their relationship. Does Madison really know and understand the life she is buying into by being ties to Alex. A life of uncertainty and mental illness is not what he wants Madison to be a part of.
I found Alex to be very likeable. His inner demons and struggles are a sad insight into his illness. Madison is kind to a fault. The community they are a part of are both understanding and not. If you know nothing of mental illness you will walk away with a wealth of knowledge after reading this book.
The ending was sweet so all in all 4 STARS
