Publisher's Summary

Non-explicit trigger warning for childhood abuse including molestation.

What if the worst thing isn't that they don't believe you?
What if this worst thing is that they just don't care?  

Seventeen year-old Emily has accepted the truth of her past trauma and made peace with her battered egos. She's won the first battle...barely...but the war in her psyche still rages. The same day Mom is released from rehab and Emily finishes detox, Dad announces he's ready to be a family again, throwing Emily into panic. Determined to protect her younger brothers and sister from Dad, she gathers the strength to do the hardest thing she's ever done: speak her Secret.  

But it isn't enough. Nobody will intervene. Emily is more alone and helpless than ever. Her therapist suggests that the key to resolving her crises lies within the mysterious First Realm, where Emily has access to her Fae abilities and where she can find her Champion…the one person with enough power to end the destructive cycle of abuse and help Emily transform from victim to survivor.  

Desperate for guidance, Emily returns to the First Realm only to discover the Seven Kingdoms in total chaos. She has just a few days to find her Champion before Dad comes for her. Can she complete her task and return to the Second Realm in time to save her family, or will her dreaded premonition turn out to be true: that she is her own worst enemy?

Powerful

Emily has come to terms with her past and the things that have happened. When her father tries to re-enter her family though, she has no choice but to tell the truth of what he’s done in the hopes of protecting her younger siblings. In the real world, she struggles to move from victim to survivor while at the same time channeling herself into a warrior to save the Kingdom in the other Realm. Dealing with the difficult topic of child molestation, the My Myth trilogy really shows us what it means to be brave. Especially when someone is at their most vulnerable. The fantastical worldbuilding is a wonderful way to show how Emily has moved forward with her pain and is working toward healing. The emotional despair from book one to now is powerful and easy to understand. Emily’s desperation to be safe is another thing that’s easy to relate to. While this book may be difficult to some for the subject it deals with, it is important just the same. There are girls out there like Emily going through the same thing without the courage to come forward, to make their perpetrator pay for the things they’ve done. Emily’s PTSD was written in a way that was very believable, especially with the random flip flop between this world and the other. Narration by the author is always an interesting thing to me. They know exactly how to script their characters, and in this instance, it was no different. It was easy to hear Emily’s pain and vulnerability, and I think that made the story even better because it was real. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Trigger Warnings/ Possible spoilers

I think writing about the topic of sexual abuse of a child, especially at such a young age, is already a very serious and sensitive subject. But the flippant disregard for the perpetrator actions by everyone was utterly disgusting and shouldn't be in a book. Especially since there aren't trigger warnings on these books. It only says abuse, not sexual abuse. I feel like these books can do more harm than good to someone that's been sexual abused, is dealing with self mutilation..feelings of self worth..guilt or shame.. If it was a fantasy book based just on the Fae..it would have been incredible.

Decent sequel

This isaa a decent sequel to Riven. It is easier to follow than the first book but there are spots that don't flow right. Narration is better than the first book as well.

Beautiful Story!!!!!

Wow. Another amazing story. I absolutely enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It’s really good from start to finish. I like how it keeps taking you back and forth of realms and to what is real, but then it makes you think what is real in her mind. It had me emotional in some parts. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to be able to this listen to this series. I wonder if there is more?!? I hope so!

Secret Keeper

Wow this is an awesome read. It pulled me in right from the start with the intrique. Fantastic world building and the story was brought to fruition with the characters so as I listened I could picture the scenes in my minds eye. The Narrator and Author have done an amazing job. I would give this more than 5 stars, if I could. I definitely recommend. Shauna Joesten

Loved it!!!!

I rarely add a audio book to my library list. Jane deserves it though. The plot was tight and the characters highly empathetic. I loved this audio book. The smart reflections of our own society and ideas turned tipsy turfy. The author weaves worlds with words as her putty. Waiting for 3rd one.

Very unusual story

I enjoyed this audio book quite a bit. Jane Alvey Harris has presented a very unusual premise and she has allowed her characters to be likeable and to be people we care about. This should be an interesting series as there are so many possibilities for adventures. Looking forward.

Brilliant

Let me say this at the start - this audio book was flat-out one of the most imaginative and creative story lines I've ever listened. Though there were times that the narrative went into a little too much detail, the seamless admixture of philosophy, metaphysics and astrophysics is a thing to behold. I cannot recommend this audio book any more highly.
