Advertised as a "dark dystopian," I wasn't sure what I was getting in to with this novel. Turns out this book is a psychological journey, filled with highs and lows, set amid the crumbling of the U.S. "He" is pretty disturbed. My guess is somewhere on the mood disorder realm, perhaps intermittent explosive disorder with tinges of paranoia. He is strategic, intelligent, handsome and capable; he is also manipulative, intimidating, mercenary and moody. The key tension point as the book evolves is whether He did or did not do this one truly horrible thing. The truth is the hinge of the entire story. And the revelation of that truth is very long in coming. A.T. Douglas totally manipulated me for a good, long, portion of this book.
Ash is a captive, culled to be his companion in this new world. He is terrifying and compelling all at the same time. He exhibits flashes of compassion, followed by inexcusable cruelty. He offers tantalizing independence, followed by crushing isolation. At no point is Ash in control of her future. Eventually she comes to accept and then crave her captor. In turn, he is not as bad as she first thought. Or is he?
This novel was a study in Stockholm Syndrome, with danger inherent in the collapse of society pushing all the right buttons. He could protect Ash. He wanted Ash. There were certainly others out there even more dangerous.
I ended this book believing the happy ending. Or was I just conditioned to feel that way?
