My thoughts on the main characters

Anna: I currently have a love/hate relationship with this chick. Why do I love her? How can I not appreciate her sweetness despite the darkness she has had to endure? She falls in love easily (also a flaw) but this is a direct product of the cold upbringing wrought by Jack and Devin. Why do I hate her? Oh let me count the ways... She's an idiot. I'm sorry but that's my opinion. For years she has been brutalized, raped and brainwashed. I get it. I don't really get it but I get it. She seems to have Stockholm Syndrome or something because every time Devin brutalizes her or allows her to be brutalized, she's worried about upsetting him. Or wants to smile at him and tell him she's okay. B*TCH YOU ARE NOT OKAY!! Stop freaking trying to appease a freaking psychopath. Just stay quiet, use monotones if need be, and keep your freaking head down. But she's too meek. All these years later she finds out she is half immortal annnnnnnnnd... it means nothing. Where is her inner strength? Her fight? Her plans for escape? Why is Alex the only one worried???? Oh Anna, just keep smiling as you get punched, fisted, tortured, raped and sodomized. That's gonna make it all better.

Devin: oh my gosh I'm not sure but I think he's the craziest mofo I have come across in all the dark books I've ever read. He gives Caleb a run for his $$$$. There is nothing he won't try to do to draw pain from Anna. No way in which he won't attempt to use her. He's essentially signed a deal with the devil (actually how does that really work when I think he is the devil) and revels in finding new ways to torture Anna for her supposed indiscretions. I've been warned so I'm expecting him and his evil machinations to only get worse in the books to come. I wonder if he will continue to find ways to drug Alex and manipulate situations to tear Anna and Alex apart. Or maybe this last bonding ceremony with the Immortals negates that??? I hate how much control (especially mentally) he has over her. It truly sickens me to read it.

Ian: whoever thought that this dude would turn into a quasi-ally for Anna? I loved him every time he tried to warn or prepare her for what plan was to come from Devin.

Alex: see how I saved the best for last? I love love love me some Alex. I want his goodness to triumph over all but I'm guessing I'm going to have to wait for 3 more books huh? His love and devotion to Anna is incredible. The sacrifices he's willing to make just prove how much he feels for her and wants to protect her. Even to the point of encouraging his best friend to pursue her despite how much he intends to have her for himself. I love that he didn't want to pressure her to give herself to him under the slave/master relationship, but to come to him and care for him as a woman to a man. I just cannot express enough how much I love this character and am glad there is at least one really good guy in this series. He's a great hero and he deserves his HEA.

Please note that this book made me experience several emotions. I laughed, cringed, shivered in disgust, blinked my eyes in repulsion, scratched my head in confusion, and abso-fu*king-lutely cried in chapter 61. Be warned!!
