Stolen Innocence Synopsis:
Every master was once a student – every woman was once a child …
What makes a person forget their entire identity? What makes them become someone else? What makes them desire pain … control … and ultimately pleasure? It’s not anything that happens overnight, over even in a few weeks. Tragedy beyond what a human can possibly imagine will forever alter Mary’s future.
Mary’s life is boring, conservative and typical. She wants adventure, thrills and so much more. But she will soon learn to be careful what to wish for when she’s taken against her will and thrust into the twisted world of a powerful man who doesn’t care if she lives or dies.
When Mary starts becoming Elena, she does find a savior, but is he truly the person who will protect her, or will he be the one to escort her straight into the pits of hell?
Forgetting who she is or where she belongs, she learns she can trust no one, rely on only herself, and fall further than she ever thought possible. She will become someone else and the cycle will begin. She will become the person who will eventually change the life of so many others. Some might say the change is good, the violence is necessary. And some will cry for this tragedy that should have been stopped.
Just when you think you know how it all came about, how it will end, you will be floored again by who can be trusted … and who can’t.
After reading the prologue of Stolen Innocence i settled in thinking oh this is going to be a gut wrenching read, however that was not the case. Stolen Innocence was dark & i really enjoyed it. I am a huge fan of Dark books. stolen Innocence focus’ on Mary (Elena) who was kidnapped and then tortured, brainwashed and “broken” to become Elena. In parts of the story i did cringe, i think that was the mama bear in me wanting to reach out and protect her.Leo became a favourite & then he totally ruined it for me, i was expecting that from him.The jury is still out on Dalton The writing was great, the storyline was a little confusing for me as i am still trying to figure out what the plot was, the book was pretty short so i assuming there will be a second book which i am looking forward too. my conclusion is, i would reccommend this to fans of dark books, who love anti heros. this was a fast paced enjoyable read for me. i am going to check out the rest of Melodys books because i enjoyed her writing.
