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 ⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️

Blurb:
Twelve years ago, our fates were sealed with a kiss.

We are all, for better or worse, doomed to love each other until death do us part. My heart belongs to Proserpina and St. Sebastian—even if he no longer wants it. Even if she has left it behind to follow him.

Delphine’s fled back home, and Becket’s holy calling is in peril.

And now only Rebecca and I remain at Thornchapel to face the unknown.

The door is open. The door that shouldn’t exist; the door that people have died to close. I don’t feel like the lord of the manor…I don’t feel like a king or a wild god. I am a friend and a boyfriend and a brother—and a failure at being all of these things. But the door doesn’t care about my guilt. It only cares about the sacrifice I’ll make to close it.

As the bruising dark of Samhain approaches, so does the fate of our circle, of Thornchapel and the village and the valley beyond it. And I must don the crown, because one thing is still true, even if I must face it alone.

Blurb:The genius and the sunshine girl. As children, we fought bitterly and often, bickering every chance we got. But then we grew up. Then we came back. Delphine Dansey carries her heart on the outside of her body; she’s looking for love and chasing dreams. She’s spoiled and selfish, the kind of beautiful that’s made for money and fame. But somehow she’s ended up in my keeping: a pretty submissive I can’t seem to resist, a lover who obsesses and tempts me. I thought I’d locked my heart away a long time ago, along with all my other weaknesses. But some doors won’t stay closed, no matter how hard I fight to keep them shut. She unravels me, just like our friends are unraveling, just like Thornchapel itself is unraveling. All year long, we’ve been sowing lust and jealousy and pain, heedless of the consequences. But a harvest is inevitable, and so now we must reap our sorrows. And our sighs.*Harvest of Sighs is Book Three in the Thornchapel series.*

MY REVIEW

Oh my friends! Harvest of Sighs just continues us on our quest and discovery, a perfect combination of mindfuckery and awe. Sierra Simone is a master crafter of words. She is a truly gifted writer. Her ability to continue to deliver shock value, sensuality, amazement, love, history and obsession with these characters is astounding. I have been hooked since book one and I will be honest, she continues to test the limits of my boundaries of comfort and I’m absolutely open-minded and okay with that. I’m enjoying this journey as a matter of fact. 

I don’t want to go into much detail as I don’t want to risk anything spoilery. I will say, you MUST read these books in order. If you are up to this point, You know from book two we were left on quite the doozy of a cliffhanger. Some of our main characters( as well as many of us readers) are still struggling with this revelation. While this storyline’s “big” focus surrounds Delphine and Rebecca as a couple, our other four main characters are obviously still very much a huge part of the story as well. 

There is so many more revelations about the history surrounding Thornchapel and our six main characters as well as their own parents that come out in this book. Their families and how they have been connected more than our crew could have even imagined back when their history quest first began. I’m so ready for Door of Bruises because I’m ready to know what happens. So many years of history, centuries long, secrets have come out and I’m a battlefield of different emotions and feelings. I’m intrigued, and curious. I’m a little worried and uncomfortable, but I can’t seem to help but to want more anyway. I’m terrified because of the way this book ended. It wasn’t like this huge bomber of a cliffhanger but it still hit me the gut. Because who TF will bear this huge burden of responsibility? You will understand what I’m saying when you read this! I’m addicted to the way this world has drawn me in and I want to know what’s going to happen. Will history continue to repeat itself? 

Friends, grab the first three books, A Lesson In Thorns, Feast of Sparks, and Harvest of Sighs. Enter this enchanting world of sin and debauchery. Learn all about the dark hedonistic rituals, murder, lies and deep family hidden secrets. Learn about how Auden, Poe, St. Sebastian, Beckett, Rebecca and Delphine crossed  the boundaries of friendship into a circle of shared lovers and new experiences under dark skies in hidden gardens with magical secrets. 

While there is definitely more F/F in this book than the previous and it’s not something that I’m into IRL, it’s oddly fascinating and still semi-intoxicating to read at the same time. That’s because Sierra has this way about her writing. I’m just drawn into the almost magical feeling this book invokes in me. She definitely put more sensitive topics in this book than the previous books, however she gives a disclaimer at the beginning and she handles it very tastefully and with the utmost respect to the subject matter. I definitely recommend this series for anyone looking for something different and interesting and enchantingly amazing! 

  My cr8zysockbookblock Ratings and Wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️- Mind Boggling at it’s finest !! 🤯🤯 I am reeling,  I am blown away by these amazing characters, This series is unlike anything I have ever read before and  I am dying and somewhat terrified for the final installment because it could eviscerate my heart forever! Enchanting, Erotic, just Everything!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Be warned. The  debauchery is as always slamming in this book. There is M/F, M/M, F/F, M/M/F so if that’s not your jam I wouldn’t recommend this book. 

🌪Cliffhanger warning-There is a  CLIFFHANGER. While not as major as book two. It’s definitely left me worried. This story is not resolved in this book if cliffhangers offend you, again this probably isn’t the book for you or wait until the series is complete. 

Otherwise, Happy Reading my friends!!📚

🔫 Trigger Warning-This book is a Dark Sinful Romance and does speak of content and contains scenes that could be considered triggers or offensive for some. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.
