Inhaltsangabe zu „ALL SMOKE RISES: MILK-BLOOD REDUX“ von Mark Matthews

Introduction by Bram Stoker Award Winning Author Kealan Patrick Burke Ten year old Lilly is the victim of a terrible house fire and a wretched family. Her father is an addict with mental illness, her mother was murdered and then buried across the street, and her uncle got her addicted to heroin. Lilly's tragic story has been told in the book ALL SMOKE RISES, and it may be true, for the author has broken into your house, and placed Lilly's body on your kitchen counter. He demands you read the manuscript, before cutting his own wrists and bleeding out on your floor. Now you have decisions to make, for her body may not be dead, and her family is coming for her. ALL SMOKE RISES is a follow up to MILK-BLOOD but can also be read as a stand-alone story.

    Just like the previous book 'Milk-Blood', this was nowhere near an easy read and I felt uncomfortable most of the time. But whereas Lilly's story really haunted me, I did not feel as deeply for the characters in this story, maybe because I think Lilly did never have a choice of her own. I was still shocked by Lilly's ongoing torturous (after-)life, but I did not sympathize enough with the drug dealers or addicts, so their fate did not touch me the same way. Still, the book creates an aura of utter hopelessness and desperation I would have never thought possible to exist in the real world. Reading this book is a real challenge - for the mind, the heart, and the stomach. Highest recommendation - again -.
