ACHUKA Book of the` Day 20 Jun 2022
This book is published for adults (by Australian indie publisher, Text) but is a sequel to the author’s YA novel Stolen and, as such, can be recommended for readers of that earlier book, and indeed to any YA readers who routinely mix the reading of adult and YA fiction.
Ten years ago (as told in the book Stolen) sixteen-year-old Gemma Toombs was kidnapped from Bangkok Airport by an infatuated drifter, Tyler MacFarlane, who took her to a secret den in the Australian desert. Now her name is Kate Stone and it’s her turn to confront Ty and try to find answers to the questions that have obsessed her since her ordeal. What is the legacy of this coercive relationship? Who holds the cards now? In the confusion of past and present, will Kate remain trapped in a deranged dance of desire and revenge? Or will she regain control and find release?
Both a courtroom drama and a road trip in the searing heat of the West Australian desert, Release is the story of two people confronting each other, each intent on destruction and survival.
