    If you're looking for a book overflowing with silvery prose, or filled with impeccable diction, then you should buy Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, or Charles Dickens' Great Expectations. However, if you want to read something raw, and visceral. Something that will make its way into the darkest recesses of your mind and haunt those parts of your brain you would prefer were left alone, then you should read The Double Edged Sword by LJ Bush. The author is no Jane Austin, or Charles Dickens, but then she doesn't pretend to be. However, there is an edge and a fire and a power in her work that is unique and extraordinary. Although ostensibly a vampire tale, The Double Edged Sword tells the story of a girl who is abused and neglected by those who should have loved and protected her. It charts her recovery from the kind of childhood that even Dickens would have hesitated to write about. Jane Austen, meanwhile, would have gone to her grave without ever conceiving that such horrors could be... More > visited on an innocent child. Above all, The Double Edged Sword is a testament to the courage and the strength of character of the author, LJ Bush. Because, make no mistake about it, much of this book is autobiographical. And if ever a voice deserved to be heard it is hers.< Less
