B2B Book Review & Giveaway: Facing Demons by Ashley Sanders

'Amidst the darkness of turmoil there is hope.'

Facing Demons is the story of four broken souls who are all struggling with different personal demons in their lives. Even though the enemies mat be different, the pain and desperation they feel is very similar. Each heading down the path of self-destruction, they end up in a rehabilitation program called Another Chance at Life. It is here where surprising friendships are made and demons are battled head on. The following is quoted from the back cover:

'Blake Solomon had never before heard such heart-wrenching
stories until now. Jason gang-member, Rebecca a child prostitute,
Matthew an African refugee, and Felicity a reckless rich kid, make
up the newest group at Blake's Anchor Beach Rehabilitation Clinic.

Each have seen more than their share of tragedy and have reached
a point of desperation where all hope seems lost. Leaving behind
worlds tainted with drugs and alcohol, violence and abuse, self-harm,
and street-life is easier said than done. Unexpectedly, these four young
lives collide in extraordinary circumstances as they attempt to salvage
any glimmer of strength and self-belief they have left.

Blake's battle to save all four from paths of certain self-destruction
is the toughest he's ever faced. Is a quick fix all he has to offer before
feeding them back to the lions? Or will he keep his promise in helping
them to face their demons?'

This was a very thought provoking and intense book for me as I have struggled with my own demons. I could completely empathize with the characters, and it made me wish that I had had the help and support they were given. It makes you see that no matter how bad things seem, there is always hope. Facing Demons is Ashley Sanders first published novel and he has more in the making. He is currently working on Prequels to Facing Demons, which explores the lives of the main characters before they meet one another. I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for it.
