Series (The Life of Anna #4)
Author: Marissa Honeycutt
Release Date: February 13th
Everything Anna cared about is lost; the only thing left is Devin. She gives him all of herself, but even that seems too little.
As Anna realizes the truth of her Master's desire, she must decide what it is that she truly wants.
There is a subculture within our own world that you’ve only heard whispers of. The conspiracy theorists wish they knew Anna’s story. What the conspiracy theorists think they know is only disinformation, put out there to keep them from the real story.
This is not a stand-alone novel. This is the fourth of five novels that tell Anna’s story.
This book is for grownups. This book is not for people who are easily offended, get nightmares easily, or have difficulty reading books about tough subjects. I do not glorify bad things, but bad things do happen to my poor characters. This is not your typical love story. My heroine does not fall in love and live happily ever after... at least not like the typical heroine. There is a happily ever after, but it is a long, painful journey to that end.
This book will likely offend you. This book might make you cry; it might make you throw up. It is a dark book. As my friend, Heidi, said, “It’s dark. It gets darker. It gets even darker, and then it gets even more darker. And then, just when you think it can’t get any darker, it does.”
But, don’t worry. I take you to the deep end gradually. ;)
There are many sexual situations in this series of books. People die. People get hurt. Things aren’t always truly the way they appear. The antagonist isn’t just a bad guy; he’s EVIL. My heroine’s worldview is skewed; things that may appall you are perfectly normal to her.
Any violence in this book is non-gratuitous and crucial to the plot and character development.
Do not read this if you are under the age of consent in your country. Do not get angry if the subject or actual book upsets you. If you're reading this, you've been warned.
Have you joined the release day party:
Marissa Honeycutt is killing me slowly. I'm astounded how she can shock me at every turn. Just when I think it's dark, it get much worse. The plot thickens, new players emerge, and my world is turned on it's axis.
This is the fourth book in The Life of Anna, this series should be read in order. Five parts total. Make sure you have your big girl panties on, this series is one of the darkest of have ever read, with a twist of paranormal woven in. This review may be slightly spoilerish if you haven't read the other books, so beware.
It's been two years since Alex disappeared. Anna has been in a drug induced high, pushing away the memories of the happiest time of her life. Miserable and Broken. Lost and Damaged. Devin has a plan to take over the world, I think. I'm not really sure was his ultimate plan is. The Russians have entered the picture, how much are they involved? My head is spinning. I'm on pins and needles.
I was hoping for some answers this round, but I was left a bit disappointed. I need Anna to get revenge, I need Anna to have her HEA, I need, I need. I'm going crazy over this series. I wonder if Marissa Honeycutt is a SADIST and she's breaking me for the fun of it. OMG! The problem here is the endless dark, usually I'm drooling for it, but I need some answers, something. I knew from the start that I had to wait, there's five books, Marissa says. Anna's life is dark, Marissa says. Devin will get what he deserves, Marissa says. I'm dying. Finally a dark hero that I do not love. I want to see him burn in hell. I have to give Marissa props for creating the most hated villain I have ever read. Please for the love of my sanity, tell me book five will be released the day after book four. Please. Marissa, I will have your babies, you can take me to the gatherings and use me. I offer myself to you.
Book Five can't come quick enough. I have a feeling it's going to blow me away. Hopefully revenge is the driving force and I can only hope Anna gets some sort of a good ending. I will jump off a bridge if Anna doesn't get a good ending. I'm just saying. I can't recommend this series enough for darkies.
Other books in the series:

The Life of Anna, Part 3: Embraced

Marissa's story of Anna began with a dream about being kidnapped with Adam Savage from Mythbusters (Yes, really). Over the next year and a half, it morphed into the story that is now known as "The Life of Anna." She has several other stories in progress, one of which is based on her kidnapped dream.
When she's not writing or editing, Marissa is taking care of two young boys, training to be an astronaut, running her household, wrestling with gorillas, playing around on Facebook, promoting whirled peas, and busting her tush for her accounting degree. She enjoys chocolate, air conditioning in the desert's summer heat, really good strawberry margaritas, sleeping, and shopping.
