Clara's relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she’s ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it's almost too late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is—and what he's willing to do to make her stay.
Now Clara has left the city—and Christian—behind. No one back home has any idea where she is, but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won't let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough....
I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I wasn't expecting it, but I did. The story was much more than I thought it would be.
I'm still not quite sure why I decided to read this. It's not really my type of book. There are some books I liked by this author... and some I didn't. All I know is I'm glad I did.
Clara is one of those characters that I love. Not once in the book did I think she was selfish or stupid or anything like that.
One thing I did like about this was that even after the whole Christian thing, Clara still managed to find someone. She didn't let what happened with Christian stop her with moving on with someone else. I liked that this book still had a romantic aspect despite everything.
This is not a glamorous story. It's not fun and light-hearted. In fact, there are parts that are downright creepy. Nevertheless, it's a story that needs to be told. One that I liked and will not forget.
