My name is Savannah Miller.

My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known.

I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all.

Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.

Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options:

One- Stay under their protection and follow their rules or…

Two- Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week.

I chose option one.

As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future.

This is my story...

*Warning cliffhanger ending*

Reviewed by Kelly

OMG! I loved this book! And it is up there with the most climatic cliffhangers ever! The writing is utterly amazing. It kept me reading and I didn’t cook dinner either. I came down and ate a bowl of cereal while reading. Yes, I got looks from my family but they knew better than to talk to me while I’m reading! The only thing I didn’t like was the spelling errors and occasional extra words that weren’t fixed. Those words brought me out of the story and I realized in those moments, that I had been so engrossed in the book that there were no words; only a theater in my head until I saw the errors in the book. That is how much it had control in my head! The other thing I have to say is that normally I don’t mention sex scenes, I don’t say it was hot or whateve. I prefer behind closed door than open door. But when I read this, I felt like I was an intruder on some very intimate moments between two people that truly loved each other.

The emotions that ran across me are too numerous to count. Between the descriptions of abuse, sorrow, happiness, love, disgust etc., I sometimes was overwhelmed. And so when the cliffhanger of an ending appeared, I was shocked and with a slack jaw! Lucky for me, the next book is out. So…..
