Torment by R.S. Broadhead

TormentBook Description:
A mental hospital.
Reese Salt doesn’t know where she is or where she came from. She’s battling a darkness inside that makes her do things … inhumane things. This is how Reese wakes up after being locked away in a hospital for the mentally insane for over a year.
A year of being away from everything.
Reese’s next journey takes her across the world for training she needs to fight her greatest enemy—Dermetheus. The man who destroyed her life and plans to destroy the world. Can she find the strength to battle the beast inside to be who she needs to be?
With Reese being absent, things are chaotic for everyone left behind in Jackson. Shayla is forced to step up as leader and can’t seem to catch a break from the forces moving against them. Are they fighting a losing battle? Will Reese ever return?
Hope seems lost.
All they can do is believe in themselves in a time of despair. No matter what happens.
War is coming.

My Thoughts:
Holy cow, I couldn't wait to start this book to find out what was happening to these characters!  Reese is in a mental hospital because of the events in the end of the last book.  She is trapped inside herself and has to figure out who she is before she can become who she needs to be.  Shayla is dealing with everything, and not too well.  She misses her best friend, her boyfriend and life how it used to be.  The whole group has suffered but they need Reese to fight the darkness and return to complete her destiny.I wasn't sure I was going to like who Reese has become in this book, but I did.  She isn't the same, but she isn't too different either.  I felt terrible for Shayla.  She and Fuzz are having to deal with more than the rest and on a completely different level.  The story has plenty of action and a lot of finding yourself.  I was certain the author was going to bring a certain character back but maybe in a future book!  I cannot believe how the author left the story and left me wanting more of it!
A 5/5 for me.  I cannot wait to see where this goes next!  If you haven't read these books, start with book 1 to get to know the characters and back story.
Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
