My Review

I’m a conflict of emotions right now y’all! Door of Bruises is the fourth and final book in the Thornchapel Series. I couldn’t help wondering exactly what lied ahead for our beloved characters. I knew there was a chance that outcome that might not be what I would choose had left me concerned for months. So while I am so sad to see this series come to an end, I was left terrified at the end of Harvest of Sighs so I’m glad to have had my resolution. Yet, still now that it’s all over, I’m somewhat perplexed by my feelings. Ultimately I’m happy with the ending I got, but it’s not as it thought it would be. I was left with some unanswered questions, but that was to prove a point, so I get it. But Sierra Simone is known for her daring and non-typical approach to her stories and the ending and epilogue is what you get in Door of Bruises. I guess that is the better way to put it, it was anything by typical but honestly it needed to be this way. I have spun it in my mind so many times, I think it had to go the way it did. Ultimately for four books she was preparing us for this. 

Door of Bruises takes us back to Thornchapel. Back to this beautiful world Sierra Simone has created for us. A world where six uniquely different but inexplicably drawn to one another wonderful characters are. They find themselves called back to the rituals even their parents had been celebrating on the same land for years. Since the first book we have had more secrets, more lies and more kink than ever unfolding all to lead us here. Just when everyone has found their place and things seemed okay a secret door 🚪 appears and changed everything.

Now we find characters agonizing over what to do about the strange door that has appeared and curious over the other strange phenomena🥀🚪🤒☠️ that’s also starting happening in town surrounding Thornchapel. They are worried but have no choice but to batten down their hatches and try to find out all the information they can about what history says about the door, so they start scouring the library for answers.  I’m not gonna give anymore away I will just say, you will get everything you love with this series. Plus more! 

All the Sex, secrets, mystery, love, kink, heartache and forgiveness. It will bring you both pleasure and pain as you take this emotional journey with Beckett, Rebecca, Delphine, St.Sebastian, Proserpina and our pouty peacoat wearing Auden. Prepare to cry the last chapter or two, I know I sure did!! 

Sierra Simone is phenomenal. She gave us a perfect tale of love, lust, respect, kink and trust between these  friends that allows them to explore far beyond who they really are as just being friends. What an amazing collaboration of intriguing old tales, folklore and biblical stories all weaved together with her own storytelling and vision is just mind blowing. It blows me away with her brilliance. I’m literally awe struck. If you have read this series, START TODAY!! If you have then finish strong my friends. Five Weeping Rose Petal Stars ⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️
