Playing on every weakness she has, he weasels his way into her heart. Slow build up to the hell that was soon to become Dina's daily nightmare. Her parents are gone.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm not sure where to begin with this. Though an interesting story, I felt it was great seeing the stages of an abusive relationship portrayed so well. I find Ryder intersting. Dina was a decent character as well. Young, alone, naive. Maggie was great! She had me laughing when she was giving the speach to Michael. What I didn't like, is that this felt like it was just a few chapters from a book. I understand it's a novella, a prequal, what ever you want to call it. It's not a good cliff hanger. When I finished, I felt, lost, not excited to read more. I hope the others in this series don't end the same way. It was like being ripped off. If the others end the way this did, I won't waste my time. It's one thing to cliff hang an ending to keep readers interested. It's another to just stop in the middle of a story. I didn't hate the story, and if this one had a little more to it, I would have no qualms about reading the rest. But as it is, I'm not sure whether I'll actually read the rest or not. We'll see.
