Blurb; The Brotherhood – safe haven or prison?
After her parents’ sudden death, a grieving Melissa falls back on her faith and into the welcoming arms of a religious sect. Captivated by their leader, Dominic, she leaves her old life behind and moves to the countryside to join them.
But life in The Brotherhood is not as safe as it first appeared. When engineer Mark joins The Brotherhood, Melissa finds herself conflicted between her growing feelings for him and her crush on Dominic. With their leader’s initial encouragement, Melissa and Mark grow close.
But as her haven becomes a prison, Melissa’s newfound happiness is destroyed by Dominic’s jealousy. How can she escape and save the ones she loves?
My Review; Ooh this was a good read! Dark, unexpected and twisted. I really enjoyed reading this one. This is book one and book two is The Refuge. I cannot explain how awful it must have been at times to be Mel and Mark. Breaks my heart. Turns my stomach to go through what they have. However, there is a good ending which I kind of don’t believe as I need to see what happens in book two now…
Dominic is one dark, twisted and sick character. Never hated a character so much in my life. Horrible man. This really was a page turner of a read that will stick in your head. Brilliantly written. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
