Lita T’s Review:
Imprisoned (Sinister Fairy Tales series) by K.L.Donn is a bizarre tale of Ariana Princess of Graeline. She has been living under a curse. On her 18 birthday she will find love as well as hell. This story is a very sinister twist on Maleficent. Instead of falling asleep by a prick by a needle Ariana finds herself in something more deadlier than an everlasting sleep. Her kingdom is experiencing the disappearance of young ladies. When her father enlist the the help of Asher aka Apollo and Matthew aka Ares to help with the girl’s disappearance it is the beginning of the curse. The attraction between the princess and the gods is instantaneous. It is also her 18th birthday. What her curse turns out to be is being captured by the very people who have kidnapped the other girls in the village. Now she finds herself chained to a wall, tortured and beaten. Her only hope is her gods. This story had quite a bit going on. Yes there was the supernatural, the human torture, 2men and 1 girl, BDSM and depravity to the utmost. I liked this story. The premise was rather interesting in a sick and twisted way. The ending was a tad confusing with the supernatural element. I was also left with unanswered questions but the relationship between Ariana, Apollo and Ares was everything. I give this story 3.5 stars.
