Renata Koreman, my little mouse. She came to me as a child—shy, mute, injured… broken. It took oh-so many years to start to bring her back to herself! Yet, I could not fully heal her.
Years later, Grant Wilkinson, he too fell into my hands. The ex-Army Ranger was badly disfigured and saw himself as a monster. Isolated by secrets, solitary and self-contained, his colleagues affectionately named him ‘Frosty.’ Yet, how should one behave when besieged by a lifetime of confusion and guilt?
The moment I saw him, I thought of her and I wondered. The eyes, they cannot always see clearly. And the heart? Ah, the heart can only guess at the truth. So it was that I remained uncertain.
Could the mouse and the monster heal each other?
Behind a backdrop of secrets, scandal, and murder, the ABUSE trilogy (Abuse, Accuse, Avenge) is a realistic journey full of healing, twists, turns and surprises.

I’m of mixed opinion of this trilogy. One the hand it was written really well. The mystery kept me listening and it look me longer than normal to figure out who committed the opening murder. However, I was also a little bored – but not bored enough to stop listening. However I did up the speed to 1.5. I think what I liked the most was the way the author dealt with issues of adults working through child abuse. The ups and downs, blame, and triggers were spot on. Using therapists to work through all the self-loathing, self-destruction, and yet continued love for their abuser was a unique and fantastic way to work through these issues. Abuse: The Complete Trilogy takes the reader/listener on an epic journey toward healing, for which I applaud Nikki Sex. This could have been a way different story but putting the focus on the abused who are healing rather than the abuser or on the abuse at the time of abuse makes this trilogy much easier to listen to and also a much more positive position of taking control of your past and controlling you narrative and reactions to it.
I received this audiobook for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.
