My first book by this author and I feel like I stumbled upon a hidden gem. I love a deeply disturbing plot with my romances. I think it is the mix of highs and lows throughout a story that keeps me focused and intrigued, almost like real life. Charity B nailed it with Anointed. She writes in such a way that you imagine what you are reading in detail and feel the same emotions those characters are feeling. Zebadiah and Laurel Ann were born into the "cult world" they are living in and know nothing outside it or beyond it. There are terrible things that take place on the Anointed Land, and very disturbing imagery, but through it all, a love is born, and the story follows its struggles and setbacks. At times I did not feel like I was reading a romance, and I think that is what I loved most. The plot was amazingly complex on its own but throwing in the innocent love and lust filled passion between these deprived characters added a whole other layer. This is a dark read and it is very detailed so be mindful of that before deciding to read. My dark lovers will enjoy this one though!
