    Left me breathless. Truly moving and captivating

    I'm speechless... I don't know where to start with my review, so I will start at the end. In truly master-like style the cliffhanger left me wondering, thinking, conjuring up possible scenarios. Like in the best psychological thriller movies, you watch for the whole time with pounding heart, trembling hands, sometimes you want to close your eyes so no to see those horrible scenes and you think you are closer and closer to solve the mystery... and suddenly... - 'Bang! THE END!'. Dirty, raw, almost horrible - but so mesmerizing in the ugliness that I couldn't stop reading. Perfect psychological study of victim being held captive, of victim suffering from years of physical and psychological abuse. And the beast, the monster just pictured perfectly. All emotions presented on pages are raw, almost animalistic. Two broken souls trying to survive in the cruel world that took from them everything that could bring them joy, happiness, peace and love. In this world there is no place for this kind of feelings. There's only cruelty, abuse, lies, vengeance, betrayal, anger and searing pain. The plot flows just in a right pace, full of angst, mystery and suspense. I loved that as a reader I don't know everything, it added to the mystery and suspense. Made me guess, made me wonder, made me think. All the characters and their qualities presented in the book are thought through perfectly. Reading this book gave me feeling like watching really good movie. Great, fantastic read! Kept me captivated from the first to the last page. Now, I can't wait to read the next part. I just need to breathe...

    Dark and mesmerizing

    This is a very dark psychological drama that thrills with its deeply emotional look at revenge and family secrets. It reels you in immediately, and demands that you stay vigilant as these strongly written characters go head to head in a century old blood feud. Ellen is one of the Winthrop daughters, hidden away from most of the world. She is kidnapped by the brutal Mischa, who thinks she's her sister Briar. And this is where the true fight begins. Mischa is unpredictable and violent...But he underestimates Ellen's strength. He tried hard to break her down, but fails. She has already been through her own hell, and Mischa can't penetrate that mindset. Ellen starts to compare the two monsters while trying to understand why it's all happening. "Which is worse? To be used slowly and sparingly? Or to be chewed and swallowed alive?" Ellen starts to find solace in Mischa's care, no matter how hard it is for her to comprehend it. This fuels a strange obsession between Ellen and Mischa. "And I wake up knowing what true hell is. It’s not the measured cruelty Robert dished out. It’s not fearful memories or repulsive scars. It’s peace— being able to find it, even for a second, while in the arms of a monster. What a terrible power to lord over someone." The story ramps up the tension until it finally pops. And it's a riveting journey to read about. I do wish there was more reveal during the first half, but the writing is excellent and anxiety inducing...exactly how this author undoubtedly wants. Now my anxiety demands more. Book two is coming soon.

    3.5 STARS

    So this book is a dark story of Mischa, an intense, cold man. Mischa is out to destroy the Winthrop Family, and Mistakenly takes Ellen. Ellen has already gone through torture in her life, but in captivity Mischa wages mental torture, that Ellen has not been though before. Can Ellen survive he tormentor? This book is full of twist and turns, and the intense emotions suck you in. Must read for any Dark romance lovers.

    dark suspense

    This story of mistaken identity is one of mystery, intrigue, suspense, depravity, mental illness, twists and turns, which takes the heroine (Ellen) through a slew of emotions. Ellen has experienced darkness before and survived, although this is a whole new level of darkness, she is still determined to survive yet again. This is a very dark book and is loaded with possible triggers. However, if dark suspense is your thing then hold on tight as this book shall leave you breathless!

    Martyrs in the Blood War

    This is a truly dark but captivating psychological read. Ellen is a stepsister to Robert and more. She is kidnapped by Mischa who is a member of the Mafia. This is a extremely well written story, but not for everyone. I personally could not stop reading it. These tortured characters both angered and broke my heart. Don’t look for a HEA because of many cliffhangers. Truly excellent read! I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
