I hear screams in my head. I see blood on my hands. When I look in the mirror, I see a stranger.
How is it that I can remember bits and pieces of my life, but nothing of any importance and nothing that makes any sense? Everything is twisted and nothing is right. I'm choking with every breath I take, suffocating on the unknown.
Two days ago, everything changed. Two days ago, the people I should trust the most became strangers in my convoluted head. The dreams I have can't be real. The fleeting memories that whisper through my mind are scary and wrong...they have to be. If they aren't, I have something much worse to fear than my fractured mind. I need to find out the truth, even if it destroys me.
I've been told my name is Ravenna Duskin. I'm 18 years old, and I live in a prison....

Entertaining, addicting, and cringe-worthy!
The way she portrayed the characters and their confusion, terror and shock.
My review: Bury Me is a chilling mystery about Revenna Duskin, who lives in a prison and has recently suffered a traumatic event, yet has no recollection of the event or the hours immediately preceding it. She's in a state of confusion... doesn't know what happened to her, who did it to her, and whom she should and should not trust. Trusting one person one minute, then another the next, this story is a filled with twists and turns in Revenna's head that will leave you utterly lost and wanting answers right along with her.
My name is Revenna Duskin. I'm eighteen years old. I live in a prison and I will find out the truth, even if it destroys everyone around me.
As Revenna was filling in the blanks and trying to figure out the answers to her memory loss, I was on the edge of my seat waiting for answers myself. She was much better at figuring it out than I was, that's for sure. And I was completely shocked by how this story unraveled. It was terrifying, disturbing, and all out jaw-dropping.
I've been on a big "creepy reads" kick lately, so when I was contacted about reviewing Bury Me I jumped at the chance. I've heard such great things about Tara Sivec's writing, and seeing a book outside her normal genre really spiked my interest. An entertaining, addicting, and cringe-worthy story that will give you chills, wanting answers until the bitter end.
I've been finding more and more lately how much I prefer listening to a mystery/suspense/thriller book on audio rather than reading it, especially when it's narrated by a wonderful narrator that brings the story to life. I loved the way Stephanie Willis added so much to this story. The way she portrayed Ravenna's shrill screams, terror, and confusion gave me chills. I think with a story like this, the audiobook is really the way to go to bring this story up another level.
