I received an ebook from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Pam Godwin!
What a dark and heart-wrenching book. Pam Godwin is sublime in submerging us into the psyche of a sex slave and sex trainer. At times it was hard to read, because it was simply REAL. There were no frills, it was the story in its simplest form.
With saying that, Godwin does tease us with her fleeting silver lining. She sometimes lets her characters slip their masks, show us their true colors, and for those blissful few moments we experience a foreign feeling - hope. The ephemeral concept of hope reappears in many places in the story, and it is what keeps us, the reader, going.
Godwin created complex, three-dimensional characters that in spite of ourselves, we get attached to. We see the goodness in them. Or at least, we hope that there is goodness in them.
This was such a great and captivating read. What a killer start to this series!
