“Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.
Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.
While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.
As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.
This is their story…”
Mexican drug lords? Assassins? Held for nine years?
Yes. And it’s done well. So well that (for me) it reads like a dystopian novel. In dystopia fiction you have to let yourself accept the situations, and in doing so– accept the characters’ mindset. What is unfathomable in my life is normal in Sarai’s world. SO, her reactions and choices she makes are far, far different from what mine would be.
No worries, you aren’t dragged through nine years of her horrors. Instead you meet her on the day she decides to escape and can’t put the book down until the last page!
All the abuse over a nine-year span didn’t break her. I love her strength and determination and will to survive. Sarai is fiercely protective of those she cares about and refuses to throw herself any kind of pity party.
I don’t know about you, but I can handle about a page of “poor me’s” before I start skimming. Who wants a recap of everything you just read? Not me. You will find none of that in this book. Every terrifying or heart warming part was necessary to the story.
Let’s not forget Victor! ❤
I’ve been a fan of J.A. Redmerski since I read Edge of Never.
