Caleb and Evie are just two normal seventeen year old high school students about to experience the usual teenage angst of attraction and shyness toward each other, when fate intervenes. Kidnapped one evening in the school car-park these two innocent young people are subjected to the most vile of abuse at the hands of professional people traffickers. Nothing can prepare them for the horrors and suffering they are about to experience. I won't ruin the reader's experience by giving away too much of the plot, but you will be mildly surprised and even shocked by the way this tale plays out.
I think this is Brisia's first novel and it is a good one. It shows me that this author has real talent. The shortness of the story left me feeling a tad short-changed. I wanted more from this talented author and I look forward to her future works gracing the literary stage. Reading this book I am reminded exactly why I love reading "indie" authors. Their work is fresh, exciting and so very often incredibly rich.
For this first effort into commercial fiction I say well done Lynnette Brisia and your novelette fully deserves the five stars I am happy to award it.
