Oh, this was a hard one for me to read, but i am glad I did.First, I'll just say I read very few dub-con or non-con books. Very, very few. The ones I do read tend to be from a handful of authors who I trust completely. Lisa Henry is one of those. I will pretty much read anything she writes, even if the subject matter is disturbing to me personally.This story was very well written, but I did struggle to read some of the more graphic rape and torture scenes. I very much liked the portrayal of Miller (the torturer) and his fatigue with the war, his fascination with Rho, his desire to hear Rho speak his own name, etc. I found him a very interesting character.I would recommend this to other readers with the caveat that it could be triggering to victims of rape or violence.
