Review by: Allie Burke on June 12, 2011 :
When I reviewed Nicole Ireland's A Second Chance, I attested to her beautiful writing.

With Sacrifice, she has secured my opinion of that gorgeous style.

"They both smelled of baby powder, soap and innocence."

Though it was chilling, heartbreaking and, at times, downright gruesome, Sacrifice is still a beautiful story from a widely talented author.

Five stars.

How far would you go in order to protect your child? Harper James finds out just how far she is willing to go when her daughter, Avery, comes to her with a problem. There is a man in her mirror who is not very nice and scares the poor girl. Harper comes to realize that this problem is more than just a childhood fear of the boogeyman. This realization leads to a revelation that changes so much of what Harper has ever known or thought and forces her to make the ultimate Sacrifice.

Sacrifice is yet another fantastic work from the mind of Nicole Ireland. Much different from her first short story, A Second Chance (another 5 star read), Sacrifice is quite a bit darker and edgier. It has the same style and flow that I have come to really enjoy from this author. Sacrifice starts out with a very true to life feel. Harper comforts her child, yet internally she has doubt thinking it is probably just an active imagination...just like any other parent would in the same situation. However, we come to learn very quickly that there is more to the story and, as the title suggests, a Sacrifice must be made

To say that I love this author and her work thus far is an understatement. Nicole has the type of writing style that as a reader will keep me coming back for more. I most definitely suggest checking out her work.
