A witch raised in a cage of darkness...

Savannah Cross was born into a life of isolation and abuse.
As a child, she witnessed her parents perform acts of malevolent evil,
and now feels permanently tainted by their dark deeds.

When a coven discovers a tear stricken child,
wounded on their elders lawn,
they offer her a sanctuary she has never known. Savannah spends the next several years shattered,
continuously looking over her shoulder,
waiting for the darkness to claim her.

On her 16th birthday,
Savannah’s life takes a drastic turn.
She is consumed by overwhelming power
that forever alters her emotionally and physically.

She must choose between two loves;
the one who taught her to smile or the darkly seductive stranger
who tempts her towards another path.

Savannah must decide between the coven that was her haven
and another one vying for her initiation.
Just as Savannah begins to grasp what fate has in store for her,
an evil looms over her loved ones; coming to claim an unbreakable debt.

How will she survive the greatest evil she has ever witnessed… long enough to have a choice to make?

I loved this book! If you took the torturous pasts/character depth from Lover Awakened (only young adult), mix in some magic from The Initiation and The Captive, Part I, and blend it together with the direct writing in the first Vampire Academy... you would get this book. Of course, that is just the writing style. ;) I don't want to give away any of the plot. I'm glad to see that the next book in the series will be out in October!

Note: This is a fast paced book that takes a lot of diff

Awesome! That’s the best way to describe this book. I bought this for my kindle on a whim, I was disappointed in the series I had been reading and wanted something different. I was very pleasantly surprised. This book was very different than most of the stuff I have read , but in a good way. The story is told from different perspectives, which really made for a great pace. The characters were very interesting and well fleshed out. I LOVED the main character Savannah. She was very cleverly

I truely LOVED this book! I admit it is my first witch story but it has hooked me in. The way that J.D. Straube writes is beautiful and compelling. This book is very addicting and I'm so excited to get sucked into the next one. This was an intoxicating read that people will fall in love with.

The characters are described in such a way that they come to life on the page and walk right into your heart. Savanah has lived a life that no person should have to go through. However she is stron

Over the past few days, I have been reading lukewarm novels that have left me feeling as if I should avoid books by new author for a while. Boy, am I glad I didn’t do it! I read "Caged in Darkness" in one sitting. I just loved it and extremely impressed with the writing of J.D. Stroube. She writes in such a way that elicits empathy for her characters and their plights.
Savannah was terribly abused by her dark magic parents. They were so evil that they had been cast out by not one but
Goodreads - Heather Unknown
Caged in Darkness is a book that takes you on a emotional ride. It has it all such as a thought provoking plot, yummy male leads, amazing action scenes and pent up romance that will have you turning the pages for more.

The story starts off with Savannah Cross telling the memories of her horrid life when she was 9 years old. She was an abused child that had to live her life in a cage and forced to watch as her parents sacrificed countless lives to demons. Savannah managed to escape one d
