Solitude of A Birdcage by Brielle Skye Tour Stop!

Maxie Shannen and Savannah Trimmel are more than best friends. They're sisters, bound by a tragic past and an unbreakable bond. When Isaac, Savannah's boyfriend, falls victim to an act of violence that leaves him with no recollection of the prior eighteen months, both women tend to his recovery. For Savannah, it's simply an attempt to care for the man she loves.

For Maxie, it's a chance at redemption.

She tells Isaac nothing of the passionate secrets they'd been keeping from Savannah, nor of the unyielding feelings that nearly consumed them both.

But as the fragile wall obstructing Isaac's memory begins to crack, hidden truths slip through the fissures, and Maxie will once again be faced with an impossible choice-- her loyalty, or her heart.

Brielle Skye is from New York where writing, reading, beading, crocheting, and traveling keep her busy. She is the founder of the New York City Writers Network, an organization dedicated to uniting the very people who share her passion for words.

"What was it about him that made her lose her sense of obligation? Her sense of loyalty? The answer came to her almost instantly." - Brielle Skye, Solitude of a Birdcage

Solitude of a Birdcage  was really well written. The writing captivates the reader drawing them in, and keeping the difficult situations rolling. The narration was smooth and it was easy to follow. Brielle Skye has created a novel in which readers can lose themselves.

Okay, I'll come out and say that no, I was not a big fan of Isaac and Maxie's cheating but I also did like Maxie, just not as much as I would have if she didn't cheat. The characters in this book were very 3D and lifelike and I was really excited to learn more about their characters, even if I felt that they were witches or something like that.  But we do get a view on a situation that while many authors use in some way they don't necessarily portray it the same as Brielle Skye. For Maxie and Isaac, they're in love and that's all that matters. But Isaac definitely dropped in my book after some of his actions later in the book.

The title was also explained a bit in the book and I found that really interesting. I've never really thought about how titles came to be but seeing it in the book and seeing a bit of an explanation as to why it might have been chosen was intriguing. 

Solitude of a Birdcage was well written and the characters were very lifelike. Solitude of a Birdcage is being released on September 13th. If you'd like to pre-order, the links are above.
