Intense doesn’t even begin to describe this book. If you can’t handle graphic content, don’t even start, but those that do will be in for a story that is anything but ordinary.
Aimee was only looking for a night to celebrate with friends, what she got was more than she expected. Drugged and kidnapped, Aimee is taken by sadistic, evil, and cruel monsters, worse than any she could dream about. She is tossed into a container with others just as frightened as she is and left to figure out what kind of hell she has entered. A game of cat and mouse quickly follows leading Aimee to run for her life and stay one step ahead of her tormentors. Detective Johnson is trying to catch these monsters and using his instincts as a father to help him on the job. Aimee realizes she is not like all the others being kept and uses this to her advantage to stay alive and one step ahead.
While there is a warning that the book contains graphic content I wasn’t completely ready for what I read. Readers that enjoy intense graphic reads, as well as horror movies, will find this right up their alley. The characters were put in very difficult situations, physically, sexually, and emotionally. It can be very difficult to read about these situations but it can also be a way to drive the characters connections with readers. Sadly, the world we live in today could find any of us in a situation similar to the one Aimee found herself in. How would we react? Would we find the inner strength we need to survive? So many questions can be raised with each page read. The author did a good job finding that emotional connection in a very difficult setting and these characters have potential for more to come.
This book is recommended only for mature readers due to the graphic content and strong, harsh language.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
