Release Date: February 2, 2017
The way of the commune is the only way I know. Born into sin, I have to repent daily.
If we follow the laws of the Brothers, our sins will be forgiven, and they will take us with them to The Promised Land. All I have been taught is that I’m bad, shameful and a whore.
But, in the deepest part of my heart I can’t help but wonder about life. Is the way of The Order really the only way?
I listen to the teachings. I watch my sisters as they dutifully do what they’re told.
With every passing day I can feel my faith slipping away. How can I believe in something that feels so wrong? I feel like an outsider.
I feel like I don’t belong anywhere until I meet Liam. The first man to show me what love is turns out to be just like the rest of them.
I’m done putting my faith in men. I’ll save myself.
Cults – I have this intense hunger for revenge against them.
Because of them, my sister took her own life.
Instead of getting my revenge, I get Mila. She changes things. But when I begin to unravel the secrets of her past that revenge comes back. I can’t forgive her for belonging to a cult. I blame her.
There’s only one problem, somehow that love I felt for her is coming back and my hate is turning to lust.
In the end I’m the one who needs saving.
This is the first book by this author that I have read and I can assure you I am really pleased to have discovered a new author.
Mila at sixteen knows that her life in the cult she lives in is suffocating her bit by bit. Liam has escaped one cult prior and has nothing but hatred towards all cults. Both young people are united with a chemistry that is sizzling.
This story is so much more than a romance, it explores pathways into some deep areas that are very thought provoking. The suspense element underneath the storyline gives it an edge that keeps you wondering what will happen. Some twists in the plot also changes things up.
Being quite fast paced the story is very easy to read. Great character and setting descriptions take you, the reader, into Mila and Liam’s world. I now want to know more about secondary characters, the story definitely has peaked my interest.
