Review: Caged in Darkness (Caged #1)
Author: J.D. Stroube
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
A witch raised in a cage of darkness...
Savannah Cross was born into a life of isolation and abuse.
As a child, she witnessed her parents perform acts of malevolent evil, and now feels permanently tainted by their dark deeds.
When a coven discovers a tear stricken child,
wounded on their elders lawn, they offer her a sanctuary she has never known. Savannah spends the next several years shattered, continuously looking over her shoulder, waiting for the darkness to claim her.
On her 16th birthday,
Savannah’s life takes a drastic turn. She is consumed by overwhelming power that forever alters her emotionally and physically.
She must choose between two loves; the one who taught her to smile or the darkly seductive stranger who tempts her towards another path.
Savannah must decide between the coven that was her haven
and another one vying for her initiation. Just as Savannah begins to grasp what fate has in store for her, an evil looms over her loved ones; coming to claim an unbreakable debt.
How will she survive the greatest evil she has ever witnessed… long enough to have a choice to make?
Quit an original story. First you are drawn in by a girl who has lived a troubled life. Abused by her parents, you can't expect the girl to be normal. Luckily she has Maye and Ash to take care of her.
From the very beginning I liked Ash and hoped there would be something romantic between them. Which happens and then there is another boy thrown in the mix. Usually love triangles urk me, but after reading the end of this book, I'm not even sure what's happening anymore!
The end is something you don't really see coming, and it's not something that makes complete sense to me. In the next book I hope it's explained a little more. (I'm not going to say specifics because I don't want to give away spoilers.)
Overall, it's an interesting read with a huge twist at the end. Lets just say you might think you know what will happen at the end, but you don't. I would definitely like to get to know the characters more and there's another book, so I think that shouldn't be a problem!
