When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind.
Reality is much worse.
A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning.
I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:
Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:
Resist and die. Or submit, and sign my life away
Intrigued. That's the one word I was left with when I finished this novella. It piqued my interest and left me hungering for more of the story, as I'm sure was the author's intent. I want to know more and am sure to be on the lookout for the next book.
The story is told from the heroine's perspective in a series of current day scenes sprinkled with flashbacks. It took a bit to get used to the unusual flow but once I was immersed in the story, it felt okay and was done smoothly enough despite my normal aversion to this style of story-telling.
So far, the story is tightly woven. Details are shared at a slow pace, allowing readers to piece together the mystery of just how the heroine ended up as a prisoner. The psychological perspective by digging into the main character's psyche was well done and added to the depth of her character.
Consider yourself warned... if you read this novella, you'll be hooked and eagerly waiting for the rest to follow. Trust me. This is a promising new serial.
