Their screams haunt me.
I’ve tried to drown them out,
But now I’m forced to fight my demons in this hell.
Shackles remind me I’m a hostage.
That my pain isn’t a nightmare.
This time, the screams are my own.
Only one thing gets me through it all.
She is my strength and my downfall.
But does she want to be rescued?
I used to be haunted by the evil in my nightmares.
Now the monsters are real.
I don’t know if she’s a villain or my savior.
Her death haunts me.
I’ve tried to fight for justice,
But now I’m losing myself in this hell.
I got in over my head and now I’m trapped.
This place is a nightmare.
And I have to escape.
Only one thing can stop me.
He is my weakness and my salvation.
But does he deserve to be rescued?
He’s haunted by his nightmares.
Maybe he deserves them.
I don’t know if he’s a villain or a savior.

For someone like me who likes dark reads this is probably one of the best that I have read in a while. The connections between Phoenix and Callie is amazing and I loved how Greer writes that connection without having them be physically together. I think its amazing that Callie has so much strength in such a dark and bad place. She shows so much ability to separate herself from where she is and what she is having to endure and still be able to keep moving and have plans on how to get out of it. It was amazing to get to see a bit more of what is going on behind the scenes that we didn’t get to see in the other books. When I read the previous books I was so afraid of the way that everyone perceived what was going on with Phoenix and loved to really get to see how things really were. My heart was broken but Greer put it back together and brought it back to life. It is a big toss up of which book has been my favorite this one or Healing Conviction.
