What a thought inspiring read! It's so emotional and so raw and so well written. Yes the base of this story is actually really nasty, grim, dark utterly mesmerising. At the heart there is messed up Caleb seeking revenge for his life that was stolen, vengeance is wanted, needed for him to be released. Freedom for him that can only be met by doing to Livvie what had been done to him and capturing her. It's incredibly well written and just so dramatic I can't wait till book 2 to find out what happens. Kudos to the author for writing a really disturbing subject in a really readable way and making a very dark subject, very sensitive.
