Release Blitz & Review - The Darkest Descension by Courtney Lane

Release Blitz
The Darkest Descension
(Breaking Insanity, #3)
by Courtney Lane
Dec 3rd

The Breaking Insanity saga concludes with an explosive and bittersweet ending….

With the world around them spinning out of control, Nikki and Eric will decide how far they are willing to descend to obtain what they want the most.

Nikki faces a tough situation that changes everything she thought she knew and tests her fragile limits. In order to get what she wants, she must do the one thing she swore to never do.

Unable to fight his nature, Eric quickly realizes he’s losing a fight against something he can’t control. Despite increasingly dire circumstances, Eric refuses to relent. He will fight to regain control of what he lost….by any means necessary.



Unpredictable plot, dysfunctional characters, a psychological thriller that will leave your mind spinning, your heart shattered. A game of who's playing who, it's emotionally charged darkness. 

"I have a way of making people want to kill themselves. This might be your last chance to hold onto your sanity. Because you know what they say about therapists, correct?” 

It's been a couple of hours since I finished. I still haven't come to terms with my feelings, I'm staring at my kindle like it should hold all the answers, because the wall didn't. Ninety percent of the books I read are dark, twisted, or at least contain some dark themes. Sometimes I prepare for the worst and hope for the best. I love the unpredictability that comes with dark books, Courtney Lane has become a favorite for pulling out the twists. I never know what she has lurking around the corner, I start to sweat, I start to breathe heavily, my heart thumps in my chest, it's all the feels of a horror movie. You can't stop watching. I grab my blanky and curl my toes in the couch. I may have squealed out loud a couple of times.

 “I’m so sick of being riddled with your disease,” I mumbled. “And you keep making me sicker, poisoning me with your words. Your pretty words make me— make me whatever you want me to be. They make me sick all over again.”

Eric Brenton isn't your knight in shining armor. He's that good looking, slightly terrifying guy with sociopathic urges. He's the book anti-boyfriend for us dark readers, he may have scared me as much as he turned me on. You have to remember this series is far from romance, it's sick, it's twisted. And complicated in all the wrong ways. I was on the verge of a breakdown with every new revelation. I didn't know if I wanted to hug, kill, or marry Eric. I didn't know if I wanted to protect, slap, or coddle Nicki. I could've been on the verge of insanity myself. This book turned me upside down, inside out. Damaged doesn't compare to these two. I couldn't help but want them to end with that dreaded HEA. Knowing they would ruin each other till the end. It was devastatingly beautiful. Tragically twisted. 

 “This is more than love. Something that can’t be described or defined. It’s consuming and soul -shattering. You don’t know what you did to me when you rescinded our deal. You broke me.”

This story will keep you on your toes. Make you question your stability. The intricate details were carefully thought out, wickedly written to leave you breathless. I had to read this book in small doses. I felt a certain doom looming. I knew the big bang was to come, but nothing prepared me. I'm still flipping the pages. The book is over, I'm still flipping the pages. I keep flipping the pages to point that I want to throw my kindle at the wall. This can't be the end, as I try to flip the page one more time. I have a lump in my throat, a lost feeling, emotions I can't fathom. 

Courtney Lane managed to shred my Dark heart. I'll be in the corner rocking back and forth.

The Sordid Promise
(Breaking Insanity, #1)

***Warning: Contains graphic language, frequent graphic sex, violence, and very dark themes.
Can be read as a standalone.

When physical pain allows you to escape your reality; what do you do when the pain is no longer strong enough to quiet the emotional ache?

Diouana "Nikki" returned to her hometown six months ago to tend to her sick mother. She thought she'd left her "baggage" behind her on the opposite coast, only to find that it never left her side. As her self-destructive thoughts begin to consume her, her mother -- realizing Nikki's torment -- pushes Nikki to complete her last wishes.

Eric Brenton, Nikki's new neighbor, lives in a dark, chaotic world that is easily hidden behind his model good looks and cocky demeanor. Unapologetic about his dirtier intentions, he sets his sights on Nikki with an offer to help her. But his help comes with very unorthodox conditions and a huge price.

And Eric...comes with an extensive black box warning label

The Starkest Truth
(Breaking Insanity, #2)

This is not a romance.

After her recent nuptials, Nikki Brenton is quickly thrust into a world she once avoided. Unable to adjust, her unhealthy addictions begin to tempt her and threaten to poison more than her sanity.

Nothing has ever been peaceful for Eric Brenton, and his life with Nikki is no exception. The past he suppressed has returned to wreak havoc on his life. He quickly discovers he can’t avoid his past, because it’s ready to attack him where he is most vulnerable.

When the truth is as subjective as reality, the line between trust and doubt is tested; for Nikki and Eric the line may come dangerously close to disintegrating.

Content contains descriptive violence, graphic sex, coarse language, and scenes that some readers may find objectionable. Reader discretion is strongly advised.


COURTNEY LANE has been creating her own little world since she was very young. When she was eight years old,  she began to bring her worlds to life with a pen and paper.

Although she's had a few short hiatuses, writing has been her passion for a number of years. Until 2013, she'd always viewed her writing as a personal hobby and a purgative process: She never thought about sharing her very personal works with anyone outside of her friends and family. On October 8, 2013, she took the plunge into self-publishing and began making her works available to the public.

While many of her works touch several different genres, she has an  archetype when it comes to the female protagonists in her stories — they have to have certain brand of strength, be deeply flawed, and harbor layered personalities. In her books you will find themes that reflect the darker side of life with a tremendous amount of depth and complexity. She also has an affinity for characters that aren't necessarily the girl or boy next door, or the people you'd encounter in everyday life. In other words, she prefers to explore characters who aren't easy to fall in love with.

Currently, Courtney can be found either working on her next book, playing the latest role-playing game on her X-Box (preferably a game by BioWare), or spending time with her family.
