_________________________________

Fifteen-year-old Hillary Greyson awakens from a horrific nightmare only to discover that she faces an even grimmer reality. Naked on a bed in an unfamiliar, empty room, she is unable to move her limbs. Worse, she cannot remember who she is. Panic-stricken, Hillary desperately searches her mind for answers, but finds nothing more than fear and confusion.

A man enters the room—a stranger to Hillary. He introduces himself as Dr. Morrison. Seemingly benign, he informs Hillary that she is there for her own good…that she is under his care until she regains her memory. Hillary cannot remember anything, but her instincts warn her not to trust this man who claims to be her doctor. She can only hope that someone will come looking for her…that someone will find her before it is too late.

Several weeks later, Hillary’s situation has grown even more dismal. Still unclothed, coarse ropes bind her limbs to the bed while she is fed intravenously. Two new strangers have entered her life—Monica, Dr. Morrison’s wife, and Dr. Bentley, who claims to be her psychiatrist. Yet they are more evasive than forthcoming. Her questions remain unanswered. She is trapped, with no hope of escaping…left to piece together the mystery of her miserable existence.

Abused and neglected, Hillary knows that with each passing day, her chance of survival diminishes. She spends her long days wasting away, growing depressed…growing angry. When all hope seems lost, a cruel twist of fate provides the opportunity she has been waiting for.

With renewed hope and an unrelenting will to survive, Hillary does whatever it takes to escape. She yearns for her freedom more than anything in the world.

Hillary just wants to go home….

What the fuuucccckkkk did I just read!?!?!?

I’m still not sure how I want to rate this book, so I’ve listed a few different rating stars below. This is a book that I normally wouldn’t read but I was craving something different and I got exactly that. I read the warning and still wanted to read it. I read the blurb and was interested and intrigued.

 

 

Writing ~ 4 Creative Stars
Storyline ~ 5 Creeptastic Stars
Shock Factor ~ 5 Make me want to read with my eyes closed Stars
My personal overall rating ~ 3.5 Stars

 

 

 

Please don’t be detoured by my rating. This was a very well written book with a fantastic storyline. My rating is based on content and my personal comfort level. This book is not for everyone and I thought about stopping 3 or 4 times but I wanted to see this through. I’m happy that I did but my journey was a horrific trip through the mind of a psychopath. Think about a cross between Silence of the Lambs, Freeway I and II, Jeffrey Dahmer, American Psycho and Twilight Zone all wrapped in one little scary book. This was a mind fuck like I’ve never experienced.

Fifteen year old Hillary Greyson wakes up form a nightmare only to realize that she really is in a nightmare. She is alone, naked and strapped to a bed. She has no memory of who she is, how she got to be where she’s at and has completely lost her memory. She soon discovers that she’s at the mercy of Dr. Morrison, Monica and Dr. Bentley. Are they real doctors? Are these people really here to help Hillary? Or are these people psychotic and bent on torturing a teenage girl? How long will her nightmare last?

At 4% in I was already pretty grossed out and woke my husband up in the middle of the night say “Oh my GOD! What the FUCK!!!

At 12% the POV switched so much I was thoroughly confused as to who I was reading.

At 15% I was begging for no pedophilia. And Monica has some seriously fucked up morals. I’m paraphrasing here but it was pretty much like this; “Oh, it’s totally fine to use a child for unethical science experiments but I draw the line inappropriate touching.” Really?

 

 

“He was conflicted between his intense yearning to touch her and his duties as a professional doctor… not to mention his marital vows.”

gross

 

 

At about 50% in shit really starts happening. I thought I had a hard time at the beginning… well Im about to get a lollipop triple dipped in psycho.

 

 

crazy

 

 

At 71% is where I almost threw in the towel. I had to take breaks and almost put it down for good. This is just so fucked up and twisted and downright evil.

Stuff happens that makes me want to run screaming down the street! NOOOOOOOO!!!!! You can’t!!! STOP!!!! PLEASE STOP!!!!!

I feel the following can be best described in a series of gifs.

Overall, it was a great book. It took me to a place I’ve never gone before and I’m not sure I can go again. I need a therapist a priest a shower and a Disney movie STAT! I wanted to read with my eyes closed, it made me cringe and loose my appetite. Only a great author can pull this much emotion out of me. So bravo Angel Gelique! Bravo! At this point I don’t think I can finish the series. I may come back to it later down the road but for now I have to put my melted brain back together.

 

 

Thank you to JaHy and Barbara for the encouragement and support to keep going.

Im adding this little warning for the faint of heart. http://i.imgur.com/46w3bpk.gif

Author Bio

 

 

I am an attorney, wife and mother from Long Island, New York. I received my undergraduate degree (BA) in biology from Skidmore College and my Juris Doctor (JD) from Brooklyn Law School.

I’ve always been passionate about reading and writing. It has been my life-long dream to write a novel. I finally stopped making excuses and got down to business. Writing a few paragraphs a day, I finally completed my first novel, “Mother,” in August 2012. For the past year, I’ve challenged myself by writing gory, disturbing horror novels. I am thrilled to announce that my horror trilogy, the Hillary series is now complete. Though I enjoyed writing about Hillary, I have to admit that at times it was murder! 🙂

I’m looking forward to my next writing project, which will be much milder!

I welcome feedback, comments and suggestions from readers.
