Book/Novel Title: Captured by the Monsters
Our leaders said it’s an honor to be chosen to go to The Below. I said f*ck that.So close…I was so f*cking close to aging out of the selection process to be offered up to the monsters from The Below.We never knew when we could be taken. It wasn’t some annual date we could mark on a calendar and avoid like a plague. We were at the complete whims of the monsters and their demands—demands that have increased over the past few years.Rumors say the monsters ate all of their sacrifices, that their appetites weren’t easily appeased anymore, but I wasn’t convinced that was all.What I did know for sure was that anyone selected was never seen again.Two days before my twenty-fifth birthday, my name was drawn—only forty-eight short hours from becoming exempt.How could life be so cruel?I refused to accept this fate. I’d run. I’d fight. I’d do everything but give in.Yet, The Below is a hostile, foreign terrain hellbent on killing all humans. Our bodies aren’t designed to survive there.My only chance of living long enough to escape—give in to the monster’s desires. Only they could give me what I needed. In return, they’d use me for their own needs.Needs that I shouldn’t want, but found myself craving.When they claimed I was their salvation, I started to second guess myself. They revered me like their queen with soft touches and a protectiveness that made my knees weak…I wondered if I wanted to leave anymore.Was this why no one ever returned to The Above?***Captured by the Monsters is a reverse harem standalone romance that will not end in a cliffhanger. Material is intended for mature audiences.
I had higher hopes for this book and while the spice was great, I felt the plot was lacking. Yes as a monster paranormal romance you need to suspend reality already but I just didn’t connect with this plot. Ended up skimming from about 60% to the end because I wanted to know how it ended. Strange book.
Love the book was very different from my usual reads I really enjoyed it… especially the steamy parts two thumbs up writer.
A book about liars and murderers in politics but written in a way that shows the reader that you don’t believe what you are told and to NEVER judge a book by its cover. Well done!
So, I read the Monarchs of Hell series and could not wait to devour another of this author’s books. I must admit that I was disappointed. I was not able to really get a handle on any of the characters. Only a vague idea of what the MFC looked like but no idea at all of What her guys look like. The book had potential and while I appreciate a good stand alone it and alone it seemed kind of rushed. I may try another another book by this author but I don’t think it will be in the monster’s universe.
That’s one way to keep your word. But so much needless death. Well…it does happen like that sometimes with a greed war.
Righting wrongs is never boring; it’s highly entertaining for minds bogged down with injustice. I liked that the heroes of the story are monsters and power hungry humans are targeted and dealt with expeditiously.
