Born Torn: Kiara Noir Mother Nature Series by Suz Eglington begins the story of Kiara as she uncovers secrets that change her life forever. Kiara knew no one from her extended family. Growing up on a Colorado reservation with her mother, she wasn't fond of the circumstance or her mother's crazy ideas. All she wanted for her birthday this year was to join a college away from her home, travel, and become a famous photographer. However, all those plans are shattered when a woman claiming to be her Aunt Jade arrives and reveals secrets hidden from Kiara all her life. Before she knew it, Kiara was also questioning everything about herself, her mother, and their existence. It was time for Kiara and her mother to return to where they came from to protect everyone else, even if it meant Kiara would suffer the most.
Tense, intense, and packed with many emotions, Born Torn was the perfect story to keep me company. I finished this book in a single sitting and restarted it immediately. I don't remember when that happened last time. I was fully immersed in Born Torn. Kiara's predicament was fascinating. She was torn between chasing her dreams and doing the right thing. Aunt Jade was the catalyst, but Kiara always knew she and her mother, Willow, were different from others. Traveling to a new enchanted place where she was still a stranger brought emotions she wasn't familiar with. The tussle between mother and daughter was fun and very endearing. Willow and Kiara butted heads often but loved each other so much. The story's setting was beautiful, even when author Suz Eglington described monsters. This novel was a pleasure to read, and I can't wait for the sequel.
