Do you find pleasure in my tortured screams?
My darkened cell is my own living nightmare.
Why do you continue to play this game? Why don’t you just kill me?
You’ve almost broken me all over again—but I’ve held firm. I’ve pushed through the pain you’ve inflicted. And now I’m seeing a side of you I never knew could exist. A side I connect with. A side I could grow to like.
Your touch on my skin . . . it ignites a fire within.
Only time will tell what will come of it.With love, Elenore.
Liz keeps a notebook and pen beside her bed for when those late-night ideas pop into her head, plus she’s a stationery addict and loves pens, notebooks, and, well, anything stationary.

This was another great installment. We get some twists and turns. Secrets are revealed, and more are hinted at. Elinore is a fighter that is for sure. But just maybe there is also some darkness lurking beneath. We get a bit of a look at her backstory through journal entries that give us a glimpse into her younger years. Which added more depth to the story. I am still holding on to my theory of who Captor is. I am hoping this one was full of red herrings because if not then it was pretty obvious who he is and that would be a bit disappointing. The ending throws us a bit of a curveball and left me wanting the next (and final) book in this trilogy ASAP. I am really enjoying this story so far so this one gets a solid two thumbs up from yours truly.
