Lydia awakes, bound and blind, to the whispered urgings of a man who has his hands on her. His words confuse her at first, but she soon understands they are both in the middle of a performance that will determine whether she remains in captivity or dies. The crowd must be entertained, and her cellmate makes sure it is.

Forced submission is not the only horror Lydia endures. She has no memories of life before her imprisonment, and Joe, her cellmate, is her only comfort as the powerful creatures that hold them captive torture and debase her. Together, she and Joe cling to the will to survive long enough to break free and seek revenge. Their desire to sustain one another triumphs over their wardens' efforts to destroy them. There is no pain, no suffering, that can tear them apart.

Beyond their cell, their love is tested. Can they hold strong in the face of the challenge of the new powers they have gained along with their freedom?

Be warned. Deadly Captive is not for the weak stomached. This is probably one of the strangest but utterly captivating stories that can be described as a romance (in a way) but is also, so much more.

From the first chapter the reader is transported into the action. Lydia doesn’t know who she is or what the hell has happened and I think the way Bianca Sommerland plays out the amnesia allows the reader to be just as confused about what is going on.

The characters are different and the depth of the emotion is poignant. The addition of Mary was such a sad moment throughout the book but it tested the strength of Joe and Lydia. The entire book is played in the first person and I usually get a little bored with the one tone description but with Deadly Captive it really works. So much is being played out, you don’t need the extra point of views.

Overall this is a book with the combination of paranormal, torture, love and above all a woman’s fight for freedom. You will like or love this book if you want something different and away from the norm.
