HOLY FUCKING SHIT. WHADAFUQ DID I JUST READ?This was a total mind fuck. I kept persevering and persevering to get to the end of this torture. Not that the book was torture, but the torture that Claire was going through. I don't...I don't even...I'm speechless. Holy shit.This book...is so fucked up. Like I mean...there's really no other words for it. It's a mindfuck book.And not mindfuck book like [b:Gone Girl|8442457|Gone Girl|Gillian Flynn|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1339602131s/8442457.jpg|13306276] by [a:Gillian Flynn|2383|Gillian Flynn|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1232123231p2/2383.jpg]. This was a whole different breed...nay, species!This literally took me a day to read this on my e-reader. I was so absorbed with this story. I HAD to know how it ended. I did NOT see this coming. I don't want to put any spoilers in this review. I just want you all to know that I am 100% completely dumbfounded by it all. I had to shake my head after reading in a failed attempt to clear my head at the audacity of it all. Aleatha Romig...she is going to mess you up.I'm scared to pick up the next book. This first one freaked me out so much, from beginning to the ending. It's a different kind of horror. I want to see the revenge happen, but I don't believe Claire can succeed. I think she will bow to Anthony's charms just like every other damn time.I have never seen such a bad case of Stockholm Syndrome in my life! Not that I'm around people who've had this done to them or ever talked to anyone who has ever had it, you know what? Let me just say that this was fucked up and leave it at that.This was probably a really horrible review because I just kept saying it was fucked up and not explaining WHY it was fucked up. I just...there's just so much...just read it. If you dare...Bottom line: I turned every damn page of this book in shock at what happened on the prior page, believing that the next would be get better. And you know what? It did. But not the way you thought it would. This kept me hoping and praying for a happy ending. I have a feeling that this author is going to be a billionaire. I was literally held captive by her words and storytelling. This is a helluva mindfuck so beware! Enter at your own risk.
