For the past two months, Kitty Doe's life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate the Prime Minister's niece, her frustration grows as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoats keep her in the dark more than ever.

But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape.

As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she'll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in—but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?

Some moves are riskier than other. This is the truth. Sometimes when it comes to a sequel it is hard for you to fall in love with the second book. And sometimes you just do. When it came to Captive, I had some issues liking Kitty. I am not sure if this was intentional or she just became insecure after Pawn.

There are many things that happened to Kitty in the first book. Her identity is completely changed... literally. She becomes masked and is to impersonated the Prime Minister's niece, Lila Hart. When I say masked, I mean she looks like someone else, her face is transformed. Now in Captive, we learn why she was the one to turned into Lila.

Captive picks up right where Pawn left off (you must read Pawn to understand what is going on). It is as mysterious as the first. But if you picked up few clues from the first book, then you know where this book was heading. Nonetheless, it was surprising how the truth was revealed to Kitty. But the journey was somewhat maddening.

Kitty... oh dear Kitty. I wanted to slap you many many times! As strong as her character portrayed in Pawn, she was 180 degrees from this character in Captive. God, the constant questions. This girl can be such an interrogator! And. It. Was. Irritating! I wanted to scream at her to shut up and go with the plan. But no, her way or no way. She was so careless... ruined many many plans and she never learned.

To make up for her annoyance... comes in Knox. If you are a fan of Shatter Me series and if you LOVE Warner, like myself, then you would love Knox. Let's just leave it at that. Boy oh boy, he is charming. I love him so much.

Though I was annoyed at Kitty and her million questions, I did enjoy the book. Every time Knox would show up, I was swooning like a fool. A big secret was reveal and I cannot wait to read the next installment of The Blackcoat Rebellion series.
