Four people are being held captive in separate rooms. They each are responsible for the same crime and will endure their own private hell. While in these rooms they will re-live the acts that have brought them together. They will understand how it feels to scream for help and have no one come to their rescue. Even though the bible states, “Forgive us the wrongs that we have done, as we forgive the wrongs others have done to us”, the revenge seeking protagonist in this story is missing those pages. As the day goes by and the night sets in, these unwilling guests will endure extreme pain and fear. By the end of their journey, they will all fully understand meaning of ‘Vengeance is Mine’.
Average Rating: ⭐︎✩✩✩✩⭐︎⭐︎⭐︎
My Rating: ✭✭✭⭐︎
Oh yes, this is one heck of a gruesome story that gets straight into the action, no messing about, no long lead up. The protagonist has carefully and thoughtfully worked through how this was going to be done, but gives nothing away before hand so that I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation for the next act and disclosure.
The unfolding of the all important background is very cleverly revealed in each scenario of terror, flicking back and forth slowly building a whole picture of injustice.
This book reminded me of the SAW films, that you couldn’t bear to watch nor look away from. The scenes of violence are well described, if you like that sort of thing, and I like horror stories.
I enjoyed the way each character is gradually revealed, and do we have sympathy for them; absolutely not, we may even think they are getting their just deserts which is very important in this genre.
Oh how I wanted the ending to be after the final vengeance had been carried out to see what Opio’s imagination could conjured up next.
I really liked this book, although it did not blow me away. Having said that, I think that this author is definitely someone to watch out for in the future, because I believe his imagination is wonderful and look forward to reading his next book.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book for an honest review.
