Our Broken Sky

A Chaos Theory Novella - Book 1.5

Our Broken Sky is crazy and mind blowing. What would you do for your twin? Would you kill the three guys that raped her and got her pregnant? Or would you let it go and accept that she’s not pressing charges? Would you scream your anger to the world? Or would you slink away and hide in the dark? Would you go to prison for them? Will you be willing to have your heart broken? Be taught a lesson you never wanted to be taught? Will you suffer through the pain in your heart? Your body? Or will you seek out someone to talk to? Someone who will make you feel better even though you don’t deserve it?

Valeries Crane or Val to everyone who knows her deals with all of these and more. When her twin sister gets raped at a party and refuses to press charges Val and Max, a boy that has loved her twin for forever, come up with a plan to get rid of the men responsible. For this crime Val stays in prison for three years before she’s put in a place called the Compass Room. It judges your thoughts and sees if you truly are an evil person inside. Your ghost and demons will kill you the same way you killed them. While there Val falls in love with Jace, a girl who tried to commit suicide but ended up killing family instead. The last four players, Val and Jace included come up with a plan to destroy the Compass Room. If they can get it to malfunction then they will be escorted out, in the process Jace dies and Val is heartbroken.

Our Broken Sky is an interesting read to say the least. You really have to have an open mind and a bit of an imagination to take this storyline in and understand, follow and get the overall concepts. Val is a very broken soul who gets even more so when she gets out of the Compass Room. I felt so bad for her. I just wanted to hug her and tell her to keep moving on.

Book Blurb for Our Broken Sky

In The Wicked We Have Done, readers were introduced to Valerie Crane. But you don’t know her the way you think you do. This is her story…

Valerie has always been different from her identical twin Veda. Tattooed, fiery, and foul-mouthed, Valerie acts on instinct, getting even with anyone who wrongs her passive, sensitive sister.

At twenty-two, Veda doesn’t want to seek revenge against the three young men who raped her. As for Val…

Val never could manage her anger well.

As far as Val sees it, the Compass Room is simply a quicker way for her to die—payment for the crime she feels no guilt over. There isn’t a reason to fight, not until a girl as broken as she is reminds Val of what it’s like to hope…
