Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection!
The mafia never lets you go.
I thought I was safe, free, but I never expected to find myself locked in a cage.
I’m in his territory. His prison.
A fate worse than death awaits me if I can’t get away, so when the opportunity of salvation presents itself I grab it, even if I’m unsure if I can trust the hand I’m holding.
The only way out is through, exposing secrets and spilling blood.
Things aren’t how they appear. Nobody is what they seem.
Not even me.
Oh, how I wish I could give this 6 stars! I have to be honest, I read this book without reading the blurb while only knowing it was a fairy tale retelling dealing with the mafia. Even if you read the blurb it will do nothing to prepare you for this insane ride. Ella’s life has been turned upside down and she is doing what she can to survive in a world full of monsters in the form of men. She is kidnapped and tortured. There was actually a point during the torture that I was going to put the book down. I felt like I knew what was going to happen, she was going to have Stockholm syndrome and then she was going to fall even further down the victim drain. I almost couldn’t take it. THEN…the unthinkable happens, and not from the person you would think. And BAM! My perception changes in an instant! I could not put this book down! All of sudden we are running, secrets are coming out left and right and the tension is intense! Can you be a monster and a savior? Can you truly change what you really are? Can you truly feel alive and feel like you are actually living if you are constantly on the run? Just like in Beauty and the Beast, love will conquer all, but dayum if this story didn’t make me feel all sorts of twisted up emotions and crazy feelings. I highly recommend this book… and when you start reading it, don’t stop til the very end. You won’t regret it. Bravo for an amazing story!
