From the Inside Flap
I blinked at him, wondering how the man could read my mind. This felt more than dangerous. The Commander General was either the best stroke of luck I'd had since I was brought to this desolate place, or he was going to be the death of me, and the worst of it was, there was no way of knowing which way my story would play out.
"Yes." My reply was breathy. "Yes, it does, Sir."
Harper lifted the glass between us, placing it to his lips again and draining the remainder of the liquid. He reached down, placing the tumbler somewhere at his feet.
"How dangerous?" Harper's lips grazed over mine, the caress transferring the remnants of his drink to my mouth.
Panting at both his proximity and the inebriating taste of his mouth, I sucked my lower lip between my teeth.
"Too dangerous?" Once again, he brushed his mouth over mine, but this time I sought the caress, leaning into him despite the hand in my hair."No."

You see, the males in this tale have convinced themselves that women are to blame for most of the negative aspects in their lives. Yes, apparently the art of honest self reflection isn’t a part of their world. As a result, female rights are destroyed and women are placed in camps to be “properly trained,” or more accurately stated constantly punished for being who and what they are. It’s a difficult and dark read at times.
As I said, I often put myself in the place of these female characters and I know I’d be plotting my revenge, slowly, surely, with patience, intellect and intent, no matter how long it took.
In this case, the main female in this story and I are somewhat alike. She’s appearing to acquiesce, but she’s not a doormat. She’s biding her time, waiting for something to come along that she can grab a hold of and find her way to freedom again. She wants to survive.
Would men actually act this way given the chance? Well, for millennia women were without many rights and subject to the will of men, so I guess that, yes, some would. Careful gentlemen, women can be quite dangerous if pushed far enough. And in this story, my oh my but they are pushing.
The book doesn’t simply end; there is more to come, and I’m very curious to see how this plays out. So despite how uncomfortable this book made me at times, I just have to see where this goes. I love Felicity Brandon books because she takes me to places I haven’t been. She makes me angry, sad, happy, satisfied and even stimulated in wonderfully erotic ways. I love her darkness and if entering the shadows appeals to you, read this book.
I had no trouble understanding Caroline's motives, but I still have no idea what to think about the Commander General
What ensues is a complex blend of humiliation and degradation play interwoven with the politics of hate and gender oppression. It made me cry for the heroine, made me want to beat the anti-hero over the head with a whiskey decanter before kneeling at his feet, and gave me hope.
This is an amazing series, compellingly written, frighteningly realistic, and fascinating. Highly recommended.
Felicity will always take you on a journey of taboo and take you out of your comfort zone, but that is why I like reading her books. It really helps she is a good writer and an excellent story teller. (author). Be ready for the rollercoaster of emotions and don't fall to deep into the rabbit hole. The darkness is waiting.

The premise is definitely dark but the repeated correlations made with the Holocaust felt supremely disrespectful and uncomfortable. To make events and manipulations that are known to have happened in the actual Holocaust the subject of an erotic fantasy are just a line too far for me. I couldn't get into the fantasy element with so many blatant correlations made to historical events.
I enjoyed this dark story.
