What fantastic world building here! A world that has lost everything. People who are either part of the rebuilding or part of the enemy or surviving on their own. Prejudices are alive and well in this dystopian world. Watching how the privileged survive after the Ash, watching how the remaining thrive in this world gives this story its danger. Anything might happen to anyone at any time. It does not matter if you were privileged or poor. You are subject to the earth's desolation and the cannibals.
Ilsa, the general's daughter, is kidnapped as a political move but she knows what her fate will be because, while her father controlled her life, he could not keep her from reading the books in his library and she learned. She learned very well. Her kidnapper, Talon, is a man who hates her for taking away his family. She lives with her regrets on that and knows he is the only one who has ever told her the truth. She now has to rely on him for protection. Their interactions are harsh. Non-consensual sex occurs. Both have to exam their time together and decide if they should split or find a way out of their current situation. I liked these characters that I wanted them to find a solution.
I was hooked on this story from the first line. I liked the first person point-of-view. It put me in Ilsa's boots. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series because I want to know if the same thing happens. A scary world but one to which I will willingly return. The writing was that good.
I loved the premise of this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series. The author does warn about the explicit sexual content, but some people might be uncomfortable with it none-the-less - especially the sex scenes that border on violence and hint at rape. I found these scenes disturbing, but I thought they were important to the plot and fit with the story. Just be warned - this might not be suitable for all audiences. The language was also rough, and sometimes the crudeness felt a bit forced and unnecessary, but (once again) it was understandable given the circumstances the characters faced.
That being said, most of the book was thoroughly enjoyable. I thought it was a fast paced, well written story, and I can't wait to read more from Heather Knight.
There are triggers in this book which made me feel sick. It's free but I wish I never read it. I pity the heroine a lot. A lot of bad things happened to her that is sickening (repeat r*** and s** slave by a trucker) at age 14. She was strong and clever. Hence the 1 star. Additional half star for the hero...
