Charcoal Tears (Seraph Black #1) by Jane Washington


∴ Charcoal Tears (Seraph Black #1) by Jane Washington


“You see, there is safety in simplicity… in a life of simple peace, where the electricity doesn’t dance across the backs of my eyelids, and the sparks don’t slither over my consciousness. Only asinine peace, where my paintings don’t seem to paint themselves, leaving me with terrible feelings of premonition and a chill beneath my fingernails.”

Seraph Black used to think that she was prepared for anything. She could last days without eating and she always walked away from the violent altercations with her father relatively unharmed. She survived working at the club and the drive to school every day in her mother’s rust-bucket of a car… but it all changed when Noah and Cabe came bulldozing into her life, careless of the precious secrets they picked apart in their quest to take over her world. She was even less prepared for the mysterious Miro and Silas, and nothing could have prepared her for the bond. The connection. The reason for it all.

Someone wanted her to stay away from her new friends, but she wasn’t willing to do that.

Everyone had secrets.

She wanted to know theirs. They wanted to own hers.

And the stalker?

He seemed to know everything already.


“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”

I absolutely loved this book! I finished it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down! The plot is so unique and different from anything I’ve ever read. I loved the reverse harem and how it didn’t feel like a reverse harem. Each of the male characters are different and each of their personalities are drastically different. Noah is intense and very in the moment. Cabe is warm and a constant sunshine. Miro is sophisticated and intelligent. Silas is dark and mysterious. I enjoyed how each of them would do anything for Seraph and how each of them watched over her even when she didn’t know it. I love Seraph’s relationships with each of the guys and how they are different. I loved how we were constantly in the dark and how I had to constantly figure out what was happening. It made the book very unpredictable which I was thankful for. I am so glad that I picked this book. It deserves all of the stars and more and I can’t wait to read the next one.
