When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her thirty-third birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken. If she wants her freedom, she has to take a close look at her past. But, her past has a heartbeat... and her kidnapper is nowhere to be found. With her survival hanging by a thread, Senna soon realizes this is a game. A dangerous one. Only the truth can set her free.
~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~
I have loved some of Tarryn Fisher's Stories because they are not like anything else you've ever read. I'm not sure I was able to grasp all the subtle nuances of this complex story, not enough for me to love it, at least, but that's not to say that I wasn't moved by it. I have read somewhere that this story means a lot to Fisher and I am curious as to the why especially now that I've read/listened to it.
I will say that this was nothing like I thought it was going to be…I thought I had it pegged from the cover and from reading other posted reviews. But, no. I was wrong. Senna is not so much unlikable, as she is distant. She is an anomaly and she has been taken by someone…this is her story about love and survival.
