Book Review - Escaped by J.C. Mells

Escaped (Pierced, #2)

I was so excited to read this novella! In the first book, Pierced, we learn about a man named Oscar; however, not much insight is given into his character. In this novella we get to know Oscar. Further, we delve deeper into Pierce's world beyond the walls of the vampire compound. And what a world it is! 

Oscar was the only child of a doting mother and father. A privileged boy of Spanish and Mexican descent, Oscar lived most of his life in Spain. Traveling overseas to attend New York University, he becomes enthralled with the city. He also falls for a young woman--a woman too young to become his wife, so he must be patient. He builds his life with her as the foundation, until he discovers that sometimes life has other plans.  

Things began to unravel, and Oscar finds himself working for a psychopath. The psychopath is holding girls hostage. And Oscar decides to help the girls by setting them free. Things continue to unfold, taking us on a frightening journey. And soon, Oscar's world as he knows it is changed forever. 

Such a great story! I love this writer. The plot, characters, and the depth of feeling in her work is limitless. I was on edge of my seat, and transfixed on what was going to happen next! My heart ached, but it was just so good! A truly amazing story, thoroughly complete for a novella, this is a must read! But only after you read Pierced
