Escaped is the novella follow up to Pierced which is an absolute must read. So much many linger questions from Pierced have been answered. This book centers around Oscar Alvarez de Sevilla, who we know helps Pierce and Mia, and his relationship with Reyes. The story is told in flashback from when Oscar and Reyes first meet and in present time as he helps Pierce. What the story lacks in length it makes up for in its contents. The richness in detail of provides us with a deeper understanding of Pierce as well as to experience her from a different point of view. The love, pain and relationships Oscar has in his past that carry on until his death brought me to tears.
J.C. Mells had me hooked at Pierce, but her follow-up novella, Escaped, has guaranteed me as a complete fan now. Word of warning, If you have not read the first book in the series, then hold off reading Escaped until you do. So much many questions are answer that it will spoil Pierced for you. However…both books are easily the best I have read this year. Counting the days until the next release!
