Holy cow, I loved this story. It is not for the faint of heart, and I really hope there aren't things like this going on in the real world, at least I would like to believe there aren't. I can't imagine how Brant was able to endure physically, and, even more so, emotionally, as well as he did. My heart was torn a little bit with each page turned. I wanted to get to the end to see if Brant was able to find some peace and see how things turned out, but, at the same time, I really didn't want it to end.
The writing and the scenes was so creative and descriptive, I found myself cringing often. At times, my eyes would shut to keep me from getting the visuals, but then I couldn't help myself from peeking to see what happened next.
The only real issue I had were the piddly typographical errors, but I was so engrossed in the story that I overlooked them this time around. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.
