Reality can be more terrifying than the strange tales that sometimes circulate. When inky blackness creeps and crawls into every internal recess of a human being, it can be a recipe for living hell on earth.

But sometimes, even in the most desolate, frigid terrains… absolution can be found.


Serpent tongues, slithering all around, hissing violent, toxic things, choking the very life out of me… There is no light here, yet I cling to a formless hope that may not even exist. Even as this personal prison tries to wring the last bit of breath from my cold body, I can’t help but think that a lifeline will be thrown to me through the barrage of taunting shadows that tempt me with whisperings to simply end it myself.


The voices of past deeds and experiences never stop, no matter how hard I work to get over the scarred bits that are always on the verge of being picked open like a sore that will never heal. Most days, I’d rather bang my head into a concrete slab until they all just shut the fuck up. That all stopped the day I found her, a broken, quivering mess who was afraid to leave my property. Her personal demons shone through her sunken eyes, and I knew I had found someone familiar. She scared me to death, but through her, my purpose in this godforsaken world came into focus. She needed me to be a beacon… to show her the way out of the desolate pit of hell that I had only recently figured out how to climb out of.

***Warning. This book is for mature audiences only and has many triggers including strong language, sexual/fetish content and rape/ abuse flashbacks. This is a work of fiction about surviving and is not for the faint of heart. *** This is an MC Romance with dark edges…

Lita T’s Review: 
Winter’s Absolution by Kristina Canady. I really enjoyed this story. Luna’s world exploded the same time she watched as her father got blown up while serving in Afghanistan. Now she finds herself living in a cage. She is dirty, hungry and is being physically and sexually abused. She is being held as a sex slave. Knowing if she doesn’t escape soon she will die in that cage. When the opportunity presents itself she runs for her life and ends up hiding in a bunch of hay in a barn. Leo has served his country and has done unspeakable things as a special ops soldier. Now he has a farm where he can be alone with his horses. His closest neighbor is miles away. When a bunch of his meth head neighbors come onto his property looking for someone he scares them off. When they leave he finds a guest in a pile of hay. This was a story of two people who have endured terrible things and for some strange reason they are able to find their way to a somewhat normal life. Luna has to deal with trying to get over the abuse she endured at the hands of her captives. While Leo has the MC club his surrogate father is in along with prescription drugs to keep his demons at bay, he still deals with the horrors he had seen and done in the name of war. I really enjoyed the way the author told this story. I was pulled into the story and couldn’t get enough. This was the first time I have read a book by this author. I look forward to reading other books by this author. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book and I give this 4.5 stars. Due to the way the book ended and the questions I have, I can only hope there will be another book.

Raised California, Kristina moved to Colorado to pursue her education and fell in love with the area. After pushing through college class by class with a few scenic breaks in between, she finally graduated with the support of her family and friends.
After establishing her career in nursing, she felt something was missing. Her artistic side was calling so she started to pick up her writing and painting again. After a while, she found that her short story had grown into her first novel. Writing is a passion of hers and she feels the greatest achievement in her art is creating works that bring enjoyment to others.

She continues to reside in Colorado and is working on the next installment of an Affliction of Falling Novels.
