Book Review: Disquiet by Ella May

I’ve something really great but intense for you today. Just be warned: This book contains mentions of suicide, psychotic episodes, self-harm, child-loss, sexual motive, abuse, drugs and crime.


Disquiet by Ella May

A Mentally Unwell Sister

A Devoted Wife.

A Husband and Brother With A Secret.

A Psychopath Seeking Revenge.

Elowen has been attacked in her brother’s home. The aggressor’s body lies cold next to her.

In a secure psychiatric facility, on suspicion of murder, Elowen struggles to recall the attack. The police are quick to assume that she is guilty.

However, Elowen protests her innocence and begins revealing a series of dark, twisted secrets.

What really happened?


What a ride! I love a story that jumps between different character perspectives (when it’s done well, of course) and keeps me guessing until the end. Of course, that means it’s hard to review this book without given away any spoilers so you will just have to trust me on this one.

The way mental health is dealt with in this book is beautiful and the author does a really good job giving it a true representation. In fact, the message that no human should suffer alone is often stronger than the plot line of the story. I liked that.

It’s wonderful following Elowen’s character and getting to know who she really is. But to be honest, I quite enjoyed reading all of the characters in this book, and that’s something that can be quite rare.

Overall, Disquiet gets two thumbs up from me. If it sounds like something you would enjoy, it’s available to buy now.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
