Having read the first (I dragged myself through it determined to "give it chance, it might improve") I can not waste any more of my life on the other two.
It read as if written by a 14 year old with no depth to the characters or understanding of the affects childhood abuse brings.......don't waste your money and more importantly your time........
Dear Captor is basically about someone who is out to torture and kill women. If I’m being honest, we don’t get to find out a lot really about why this person does it or anything really about his background but I find that interesting and at times, slightly frustrating while reading it.
The book follows a woman named Elenore who has had a bad past and is finally in a good place. She finds out that her colleague is murdered and an investigation is started which results in her be questioned. I like the idea of having the point of view from the Captor which I thought was a brilliant idea. Elenore obviously becomes his next victim and it becomes a race against time to find her.
If I’m being critical then I would say that I wanted more to the story. I wanted more detail about the Captor and maybe some more regarding the prospective love interest, Detective Ramon. All in all, it was a good read and I’m happy I gave it a go.
When I signed up for an arc of this book I knew I was getting a story broken up into a serial and that each book was of novella/short story length. (This took way less than two hours to read). So I was all prepared to give the author kudos for this honesty but sadly there is no mention of the brevity of the book nor that it ends on a cliffhanger.
I am still rating the book on how much I enjoyed it, as it is a really good start to the story, otherwise I would have knocked a star off. The book is written very much like a mini-series and I'm intrigued to see how it plays out. I do hope it doesn't end up feeling like one book chopped into 3 parts as the author is talented and shouldn't need to rely on that ploy to sell books.
The writing drew me in and held my attention throughout, it flows smoothly and was easy to read. There is so much mystery, suspense and threat in the book that at times I almost didn't want to get to the next page. I did, however, feel a little sad that the scenes between Elenore and The Captor were quite brief and lacking detail, however I have a feeling this will change in Book 2!
The heroine, Elenore, is a woman whose parents inflicted horrendous mental and physical abuse on her as a child. She came across as rather aloof and as someone who struggled with relating to other people - not surprising given her past. However she also felt very real and had an inner strength about her. We also meet the incredibly hot detective Roman Blackwood and his work partner Tom. Tom came across as a little creepy and at one point I had some doubts about Roman too, but then I became convinced these were all red herrings.
There is definitely some chemistry between Roman and Elenore, but before they had chance to explore those possibilities any further The Captor made his move. This left me unsure, as I am sure it is meant to, whom exactly the hero (or anti-hero) is. I didn't really make any connection to The Captor character and again this felt like a deliberate ploy by the author that will be remedied in Book 2.
I did thoroughly enjoy this book and most definitely want, and intend, to continue the series to its conclusion.
When I read the last of the words of your book, “To Be Continued,” I sat there, mouth hanging open thinking WTF did I just read??? The thoughts in your head that you put to paper frighten me, yet I am strangely enthralled.
You gave Elenore Burrows the most miserable and tortured of childhoods, but you also made sure that she survived, and gave her a shining light in the wonderful lady next door. She’d worked hard, and had just landed her dream job, and even had the possibility of love.
How could you steal that from her. Seriously, how could you?
You put her in the way of the psychotic serial killer who has taken her. He’s killed every single one he’d taken before her, how can her turn be any different?
I’m at least thankful that you gave her an innate strength of will and survival that is more than Captor was prepared for.
Until next time.....
I voluntarily review an advanced readers copy. 5 Stars
