Because Meg has been taken to this unknown place for one purpose only: to support her abductors in 'socializing' one of their subjects.
Ten, as they call him, seems to be far more than a primitive beast, fighting battles of his very own. Meg soon realizes that she is the only one able to tame him. And that, apparently, is the sole reason she is more or less treated as a human being.
As Ten's humanity resurfaces Meg has to accept the truth that the real beasts aren't behind bars.
This is Meg's diary. Will you read it?
This story inspired by Beauty and the Beast and is part one of a series. It is not a romance.
*TRIGGER WARNING* for those who expect a simple retelling for adults: this contains rape and forms of psychological torture.
This story had a unique hook and that was the fact we are reading a diary. The diary is written by Meg, who has no idea why she has been kidnapped, but soon finds out her captors have a role for her and it's not exactly a walk in the park! No, Meg is routinely 'given' as a reward of sorts to Ten, a beast like creature. Here's where it gets interesting because as a reader I had to ask myself, who really is the beast, is it Ten or the far more sinister Mr. White, who is in charge?
Meg is a gutsy character who grows throughout this book but the supporting cast, such as Peter really help develop this story. A sudden ending, but then again wouldn't one diary become full and another began? I kind of hope that the follow up book will answer all the questions still running through my head.
I mentioned that it was free, but unfortunately there are several editing problems, so hopefully Ms Wrights will get it cleaned up at some point. A dark violent read yes, but also an engaging one. It's the characters that truly drive this story.
