Broken by Travis Thrasher
"Thrasher’s craft is pitch-perfect here, and his prose is very strong."
Author Travis Thrasher just doesn’t quit. He punches out novels like a magical vending machine. His next selection is the tale of a woman on the run entitled Broken.
Despite being raised in a good wealthy and caring home, Laila makes choices that lead her down a road that places her in a life that spins out of reality. Now, a call girl on the streets of Chicago she gets in even deeper when she shoots a client. She’s being chased by a determined individual that has plans for her in the most disturbing ways. But what is real and what is a nightmare? Laila has to face her demons to over come her fears, although as her faith wavers can she still rely on God for help?
Thrasher’s craft is pitch-perfect here, and his prose is very strong. Laila leaps off the page and is built so well by the author it’s hard to turn away. Broken is an interesting story, but at times it’s difficult to follow. Even though the author’s writing is good, the story gets jumbled, and well, no pun intended, broken. I felt at times as if I was being dropped into a different story as characters came in and out. Overcoming those small flaws, the novel gathers together and revitalizes through its core message of faith and salvation as the characters shine through and bream to life.
Thrasher is a good writer and
