Publisher's Summary

“Why did they kidnap me? I'm not rich. I don't have a lot of family to extort. I have certainly not been a police officer long enough to make any enemies. But instead of waking to the incessant ringing of my alarm clock back in my small city apartment, I awoke in the dirt. In the jungle. Naked. What is happening? Where are their demands?"

"Then I found her; beautiful and graceful, without a mark to show for her life trapped here. Wherever here is. How did she survive in this jungle? In fact, how is she keeping me alive? 14 days now, she has hunted, caught, cooked and provided without ever saying a word. She has listened to everything I've said, but never responds. Is she in on it? Am I in some weird experiment, or is it all a dream? But it can't be a dream, because I keep having terrible nightmares. About bright lights, and pain, and figures at my door their voices in my head. Of jumping off cliffs, being eaten by monsters and hanging myself. How can you have such vivid nightmares inside a dream?"

"Then there is the X, tattooed on my head. Who kidnaps someone and then tattoos an X on their forehead? What's it all mean? I've had enough! Tomorrow I'm taking control and repaying my debt to this girl. Tomorrow I escape.”

This was a fantastic entry into this world!

First of all I'm not much of a sci-fi reader myself, I'm usually either a fantasy or a 'modern day' type reader/listener. As a first-time sci-fi, this was a fantastic entry into this world! The characters were real enough that it was grounded, even some characters who (on paper) shouldn't seem like they would be grounded in some sort of reality.

The characters were well fleshed out, and the main character likable enough in a very human sense. What I mean by that is he has flaws and can be annoying at times, but that's what a human is to me and I can identify to the thought processes that make him that way.

I am intentionally being vague when describing things because there are many twists and turns in the book that I don't want to spoil as it is definitely a good ride. Although I anticipated a few things happening,there were a lot of plot points that blind-sided me in a good way and kept me reading.

I'd say if there were any improvements to be made, it would be that the opening takes a bit of time to gain momentum, but when the first big reveal happens it kicks off properly and I didn't want to stop it after that!
My only other gripe would be that I wanted more! When it ended I was saddened as I just wanted to keep reading, however I felt that it also ended really well in it's own way that if that was the one and only book, most of it was wrapped up nicely. There were many hints of further story lines however, so I do not think our time with Adam is over just yet!

Definitely check this one out, and for the price it's well worth it!
