For the past two months, Kitty Doe's life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate the Prime Minister's niece, her frustration grows as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoats keep her in the dark more than ever.
But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape.
As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she'll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in—but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?
Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton's niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person's rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear...and ultimately, between life and death.
To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton's secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she's loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty's survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.
Gah, these books! So enjoyable, so great, and I wish I hadn't put off reading them for so long! Because man, were they fantastic and enjoyable! Loved having more time with these characters, and all the twists and turns!
Captive takes place not too long after the end of Pawn, and gets into the action pretty immediately. There was just a lot of twists and turns, revelations, that were just so out of this world, they were just so fantastic to read!
We watched Kitty go on this journey, and it was hard at parts, that there were people who weren't to be trusted, and others who changed their feathers, and those who you just didn't know where they stood. But it was also pretty great at others!
A big part of these books, is the right to determine what you're going to do, to have that freedom to do that. And being able to determine who you want to be. Kitty fights for this, for everyone and for herself, as she finds out who she is.
Loved these books so much, there was a lot of loss, but a win in the end! Can't wait to read more by Aimee Carter!
