REVIEW - Reave by C. Miller


Book Title - Reave
Author - C. Miller
Publisher - Self Published

How far would you go to be free—to make your own choices without being subjected to punishment for doing what you felt was right?

Could you kill for it?

After being abandoned by her father as a child, Aster spent ten years of her life as a servant for the leader’s House in the broken city of New Bethel. She’d known, even as a child, that the cities of her world were corrupt places with human monsters—assassins—running rampant between their high walls.

Thinking everything will remain the same as it always has there, Aster is startled to discover that one day . . . the cycle breaks. As a young new leader takes a strange and—at times—horrifying interest in her, will she be capable of discovering the reasons behind his actions and orders?

In a world where nothing is as it seems and all things are never anywhere near as simple as they appear at first glance, will she be capable of making the distinction between what is real and what is not? Will she find anyone at all she can trust? More importantly . . . Does she have the strength to do what is necessary to survive in a world filled with evil?



C. Miller lives in Kentucky with her husband, a Weimaraner that is very suitably named Pig, and a fluffy cat named Poo that gets accented voiceovers periodically throughout the day. She spends most her time taking solitary trips to Writer Land. If she isn’t there, you can usually find her playing video games with her husband or staring off blankly into space while contemplating over what to do during her next trip.



I found Reave by C. Miller to very a thoroughly great read. I was not sure if I would like it or not, but once I started reading it, I could not put it down. These are not your usual characters. There are no vampires, werewolves, millionaires or rock bands in this story. Well, I guess the leader of the village may be rich, but it really does not say. There is no sex or BDSM in this story. So, if that is what you are looking for, this is not the book for you.

This book is about a slave that learns to overcome some fears, the way a leaders eyes can be opened to the mistreatment of those beneath him, and the blossoming of first love. That is all of the details I am going to give you. I hope that it intrigues you enough to pick up this book. I read it in one seating.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars because there is a twist that I do not think anyone would see coming. I finished this book at about 3 in the morning and when I got to the twist I shouted out loud. This of course woke up my husband who then swore that he was going to call my mother and cuss her out for ever having the bright idea to send me to school where I could learn to read. Yeah, it is that good and surprising.
