A military brat who lucked out and grew up mostly in the Pacific Northwest, Deidre has been reading for as long as she can remember. In Christmas of 1998, her grandmother sent three books (out of order!) from the then-popular Night World series. Within the year, Deidre owned most of L.J. Smith’s works and couldn’t get enough. She wanted more YA, more vampires, more enthralling and dangerous romances. So, she figured, she’d write her own.

Now she’s is the author of the Modern Greek Myth trilogy, the Secrets of the Sequoia trilogy, and the Burning Britely LGBTQ+ duology.

Deidre identifies as a sapphic she/her.

I Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole – Review by Amanda DelFemine

I Will Bury YouI Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What happens when the darkness comes? Who do you have left to turn to when everyone is dying? I Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole is a story of death, love, and beginning a new journey. A mysterious mob looking man shows up at Ann’s mothers funeral. Who could he be and why was he there?

Ann is your typical 18-year-old trying to find her way through life with hopes and dreams of going off to college. It wasn’t until her Aunt Meredith dropped the bomb on her that she will be moving into a retirement home and that Ann needs to live her own life in Boston and not to worry about her.

A lot of families have skeletons in their closet and Anns family is no different. Aunt Meredith suggested that Ann shouldn’t take too much time up in the attic because there is not much up there but junk. That only made Ann more curious as to why her Aunt didn’t want her up there and what treasures she would find. What kind of secrets await Ann?

This thriller was AMAZING! Seriously, it was unlike any other thriller I have ever read. The author did an amazing job with the plot twists that kept me on the edge of my seat trying to figure it out. I was so engrossed in this book that I didn’t want to put it down. In fact, I stayed up almost all night to finish it and gosh was I floored by the turns that it took and the ending. My theories kept changing but I wasn’t ready for the ending that she knocked me out with. I think the writer did a wonderful job piecing the story together to fill it with not only suspense, but great deception as well. The characters were great, and it was exceptionally well written. This was the first book I have read from this author, but I am looking forward to reading more by her. Don’t pass up your chance to read a really great book in this thriller.

I Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole – Review by Erica Fish

I Will Bury YouI Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brandy Nacole is a new author to me and she did not disappoint with this book. I Will Bury You is a psychological thriller. The attention to detail is amazing. The plotline is engaging and realistic. The characters are well written, complex, and fully developed. I found myself turning the pages because I need to know what was going to happen next. I will caution you that you do not want to move too fast because you may just miss a clue to what is going to happen. In this book, the main character is a young lady who is really having coping issues. She is lost and losing herself. Those around her are being killed. She needs to get into survival mode because she doesn’t know what is coming up next. I do not want to give too much information. So I highly recommend this book to see if you can find out what is going to happen in the end.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved the complex character of Ann. She’s smart, real, and haunted by a darkness she can barely see the edges of. This story moved at a great pace, and revealed the mysteries bit by bit which kept me engaged throughout. This would have been a great read for a teen (which I am not) but is also interesting for adult readers of YA. Definitely recommend, give it a try!

This is a Crime novel and is 156 pages. This is an epic crime read! I am pretty sure I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading this one. You seriously cannot put this down. The way this author wrote the book had your imagination running wild. I found myself having to slow down so I could take it all in. The family lies and secrets would be enough to push anyone over the edge.

I Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole

4-stars

I Will Bury You was quite the YA thriller read. I was intrigued from the very start and enjoyed the storyline. The author managed to keep me on the edge of my seat from the beginning until the very end, constantly guessing about the outcome. I enjoyed the complex, intense, disturbing and action-packed storyline. It was certainly nothing like I had ever read before.

There were just a few things missing for me, at times I had to reread and go back a couple chapters thinking I had missed reading something since it seemed like a detail was missing but that wasn’t the case. So, I found myself having to piece a few things together on my own.

This was my first book by this author but I look forward to reading more from her in the future!

I struggled with this one, and that was difficult for me because I went into it wanting to love love it so much. I have a thing for psychological thrillers and maybe I set a high bar too because of that. This book has a great baseline and wonderful plot to work with. The characters are strong and I could see where I would get the crap scared out of me. However, I found myself struggling because I would find myself needing to go back and reread or rethink areas because some editing was missed and things were just not laid out the way they should have been for that smooth and effortless read that I wanted so badly. I loved the excitement it still contained and could see myself giving it another read if it was tweaked and re-edited in the future. For me I will go with a solid three stars for now though.
