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.
Well this book was nothing what I expected. AT ALL. The way it was written I have somewhat seen before, but not to this extent.
There are various jumps in time between the present, future and past. What I love is that in the very beginning of the book, author Scarlett Edwards makes that known right away to her readers so that they know and pay attention to the dates at the top of the page for each chapter. At first I didn’t really think the time jumps necessary until I got further into the story and then realized the time jumps had important information about either the character or clues as to what was going on. I think that is a brilliant way to keep readers involved in the story. It’s a very different way to engage readers. I was skeptical at first, but I now see the reasoning behind each jump in time whether it was forward or backwards from the present. The whole time I’m reading the book, I’m trying to guess and figure out with the character who and how this happened to her.
The basis of the story is she, Lily Ryder has been captured and tied up with a collar around her neck with the choice to sign a contract and be taken care of if she follows orders that are lined in the very detailed contract for 5 years of service or wither away and die. You would think that would be a no brainer, but it’s not. It’s a very hard decision for Lily and I would think it would be a hard decisions for anyone. I found myself fighting with what choices I would make if I were put in that situation.
The story is very short so I don’t want to give anything a way, but this book reads like none other that I have come across and I think that is what is keeping me wanting to read the next step in the story. Good think I don’t have to wait to long. For those of you that don’t like cliffhangers…the book is pretty much a cliffhanger because it gives tidbits of information, but not enough…it’s more of a novella than anything else with tiny cliffhangers. This for me doesn’t take away from the book, but just seems more of set up for what’s to come in the rest of the series. I think this is quite brilliant how Scarlett Edwards is going about releasing her work for this series. I think it will be great and a lot of people will love it and a lot of people will be on the fence, and a lot pf people won’t care for it, but read at least the first book nonetheless.
