Strange, quiet Luka doesn’t live in this world; long ago he took refuge in his art, escaping into surreal mindscapes inspired by his favorite painters. In the beautifully monstrous realms of his imagination, he is safe from the pain of his losses: his family, his friends, his hope.

Until war breaks out, and he is forced to flee the only home he’s known since he was thirteen.

Captured by an enemy soldier, young Luka is marched across brutal terrain, toward a fate known only by the bearded menace holding him prisoner. Quick with a knife, tireless and strong, Tarik guards the purpose of his mission as he takes Luka deeper and deeper into enemy territory.

When the soldier discovers the painful secret he has been hiding since childhood, Luka fears he is about to endure a new kind of cruelty, worse than being abandoned, ostracized or beaten. Or is it possible the soldier holding Luka prisoner is the one person who isn’t afraid of the truth behind Luka’s silence and lies?

This book was heartbreaking because of everything Luka had gone through.  How he was treated was horrible, his beatings and the way everyone was so cruel to him.  There are still tears in my eyes just thinking about everything he went through.  There were parts that I feel like I should put a warning that some may have a hard time reading, I know I did.  I cried so much reading the beginning of this book.
But when he meets Tarik I was so happy for him because he deserved someone who will love and care for him.  Yes some of this book was very hard to read but some of it was also beautiful.  Their time together as they grew closer to each other.  I loved the way Tarik was with Luka .. At first he was gruff but when he starts caring for Luca it was honestly beautiful.
You see the war and what people are going through to get away from it.  You also see how cruel people can really be..
This book pulled so many emotions out of me.  I really can not wait to read the next one in this series!
So I will leave this review with this book was painful and beautiful. I loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!

Growing up near Los Angeles, I spent much of my time frolicking in the Pacific Ocean and penning angst-twisted poetry. Now I’m living in sunny Spain writing pathos-riddled fiction. Ironically, two of my favorite things are traveling, and swimming in the ocean, despite increasingly intense phobias of sharks and flying.

I’ve always loved the music and substance of words, always loved writing in well-worn notebooks by hand, tapping at the keys of the computer, and, of course, conjuring up stories.

And from my earliest memories, I’ve always been fascinated—maybe obsessed?—with sex and sexuality.

In my writing, sex is the medium, the expression, and the tool of discovery for my characters’ insecurities, the needs that drive them, the comfort they can’t live without, the joy and relish of life that makes each of them intense, strange, and alluring.
