But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape.
I read the first book in this series a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it (as I had Aimee's other books - the Goddess Test series) but for somereason it fell off my radar until the two follow up books went on sale for 99p on Kindle. I skim-reread Pawn and dived straight back on.
This was a good sequel, but it wasn't as good as Pawn. There's plenty of betrayal and angst, which was fine, but the actual plot just seemed to consist of Knox warningKitty not to dosomething, her doing it anyway and then suffering the consequences from which Knox has to rescue her. I wanted to shake her - she was pretty stubborn and pig-headed at times.
During Captive, Kitty is sent to Elsewhere - the prison where undesirables are moved to. There was some really decent world building and I really got a sense for the horror and despair of the place. There's a whole lot of bait and switch and you never really know who to trust (but a good place to start would be: no one) or what's going to happen next.
I liked the growing relationship between Kitty and Knox and seriously, if she ends up with Boring-Arse Benjy, I'll cry. Benjy was so tepid - like room-temperature porridge. I wanted to poke him in the eye!
The ending Captive was really good - a right cliffhanger and I was glad I had the next book in the series already lined up on my Kindle.
