Casey’s Review

Rating: 4 Disturbing Stars



This is not a romance. This is not even a twisted case of Stockholm Syndrome so don’t go into this book thinking you’re going to be seeing hearts and flowers because you won’t. To put it plainly: it’s straight fucked-up.

I love Natalie Bennett’s twisted mind and I love the dark reads but Depredation (previously known as Fxck Toy) is probably some of the most disgusting and vile shit I’ve ever read in my life. I think my gag reflex mode was fully activated through a good chunk of this book.


But, the most disturbing part of it all is that I actually liked it. What kind of person does that make me? To be honest, I really don’t even want to know the answer to that. It had a good story line with an intriguing plot – girl kidnapped, used as a sex toy by a depraved man and ends up seeking revenge on said depraved man. I do wish we had a more fulfilling ending, but I’m satisfied on how it turned out. However, this book is definitely not for the faint of heart. So, heed the warnings!!
