 ~BLURB~

Dear Captor,

You’ve stolen me.
You’ve spilled my blood.
You’ve brought me pain.
But what you’re yet to realize… I’m a fighter.
I’ve been broken before.
I’ve even at one point lost the will to live.
So now you know… this information I gift to you.
I’m ready for you, so do your worst.

Sincerely, Elenore

~EXCERPT~
Prologue
 
What’s in a name?Usually, parents name their children with a special kind of love in their hearts. Not mine though. They didn’t want me, or at least, that’s what they kept telling me. They only ever wanted to inflict pain. I was nobody until the woman next door gave me the lovely name Elenore. She cared for me when my own parents didn’t or wouldn’t.

Every single day I wished to be taken away from what I endured. Anywhere would have been good. I would have sold my soul to the devil himself back then, and I’d willingly do it now. Give my living essence to breathe, to live on. My entire childhood was a survival story, and now I have another.

So much blood. Everywhere I look, there are dark pools of solidified blood stuck to the walls, the floor—my entire cell is covered. The girls who came before me are no more. Their stories are over.

It was gruesome, the stuff of your nightmares.Not me, though—he kept me.

One letter changed my destiny of certain death. It was never in me to give up easily. I’ve always been a fighter. He never saw me coming, and he never knew my strength. He was not what I expected either.

His strength.

His calmness.

Or his kindness.

He was my captor . . .

descriptiondescriptiondescriptionA Fairly good cover on this one. It does a good job of representing the story found within. It makes great use of graphics. The composition (minus the title) is good as well. The title work isn’t the best (IMO). I think the “DEAR” would have looked better overlapping the “CAPTIVE, ” and the “CAPTIVE” moved a little bit more to the left.description

descriptiondescriptionWhat a surprisingly good little f@cked up book this turned out to be. It was dark. It was twisted. It was suspenseful. The writing was excellent. The pace was perfect. The plot was engaging. The characters were interesting. Elenore is by far the most developed so far but since this is a serial I am hoping we will get more background on a couple of others over the course of the other books. I’m going to leave my review pretty vague as I don’t want to give anything away. Let us just say that my mind is cooking up all sorts of different theories about the “who’s” and “why’s.” I can’t wait to see if I am right. Bring on book two, please….description
