Lindsay’s entire life morphed into one never-ending nightmare one fateful night. People she thought were friends betrayed her in the worst possible way, and she was left with scars that cover her body, her heart, and her soul. After emerging from this hell, she scrapes her way back to reality and to being human again. She is literally hanging on by a thin shard of hope as she finds her world once again being wildly shifted. Running out of options and desperate for allies, Lindsay finds herself trying to skate the thin veneer of her life to not alert those pulling the strings that she has her own plans that will twist the rules of this old game. By a wondrous miracle hope comes in the form of her old boyfriend Drew and her newly regained friend Jane. Can she trust them with the information they are feeding her, or is she truly on her own in reclaiming her life and her freedom?
Lindsay’s characters truly blew me away. Her inner strength and courage astounded me after all that she had been through. I am not sure that most people would be able to pull themselves together long enough to acknowledge the world around them after living through such a carefully created hell much less have the determination to take their life back. She is such a wonderful character so full of hope that I couldn’t help but cheer her on. Drew puzzled me more than anything. I couldn’t quite figure him out at first, but once he opened up to Lindsay, I finally realized just how incredible he is as well. He went through his own personal hell after what happened to Lindsay. I look forward to watching these two hunt down and destroy the puppeteers and show them that no one will ever pull their strings again.
