Review:

Warning: THIS IS NOT A DARK ROMANCE!

All my life, people promised that dreams could come true . . . but they forgot to mention that nightmares are dreams, too.

If you are wanting a dark romance look somewhere else. In this book, we go into the mind of a woman who has Stockholm Syndrome and other symptoms of being held captive and manipulated.

Captivity is a state of mind. A thing you carry with you. It is hard to let go of, even when you have your freedom returned.

Nora has accepted to taking a tutoring job in a reclusive mountain cabin to a man and his sister. For three months everything is perfect, until she has to leave.

I’ve learned the heart is a wild beast, that’s why it is caged inside our ribs, that monsters are real and they look like humans and that love is a fickle beast.

At first I wasn’t sure I was going to even like this book, but now that I’ve finished it, I’m glad I stuck with it.

There are multiple character P.O.V. so it’s a bit confusing at first. I’m very happy that this went the way it did. I really like the fact that we got many P.O.V.s because it helped the story.

Nora had to survive Holden. How she chose was to simply give in instead of fighting.

We all have demons. I simply chose to feed mine in order to survive

I really didn’t know how this was going to end. It had me on my toes. There is another book called The Brother which I think is going to be a sequel to this. Haven’t looked much into it yet. Our heroine is a logophile. I found some new words that I don’t think I am pronouncing right.

The story of going through Nora’s mind of what happened and trying to piece together what is going to happen is incredible. I love the psychological aspect. This isn’t like anything I have ever read. Definitely giving K. Larsen another run in the future.
