Overview

Ghost captain Chase Leighton’s wife, Trista, is captured by the Progressive Legacy and arrested for her affiliation with the Ghosts. Though publicly pronounced dead, she is handed over to the Legacy’s Experimental Medicine Agency. Chase searches for her, despite the news that she’s been executed. He and his men are ambushed and sentenced to the Straightjacket, a ship-based facility for the criminally insane.

Systems analyst Krissa Carlisle is temporarily assigned to the ship to fix their computers. As she is working, Chase and the other inmates riot, taking Krissa as their prisoner.

But when Chase comes face-to-face with Krissa, he recognizes her … as Trista.

Over the next three days I attempted suicide twice, but Seb wouldn't let that happen. I tried to repeatedly beat the Guardian to death within it's embryo, but considering how I could feel moving inside me at night, causing me extreme pain, toldI was unsuccessful. Finally I approached Seb. <br> "I want you to cut it out." I said, startling him. <br> "Do what?" He asked, looking confused. <br> "Don't tell me you don't know exactly what I'm talking about. The embryo. Cut it out." <br> "With what?" He asked. <br> "I know you've got that knife. Just cut through the stitches and reach in and pull it out." I said, sternly. <br> "But I might kill you." He was trying anything to not have to do this. <br> "If you don't get rid of it, it'll kill me when it hatches. There's a good chance I'll survive, just trust me." I knew I had him in check. <br> "Fine. Where's the stitches?" He said with a sigh. <br> I raised my shirt and showed him the cut the Reverends had made in my lower back. "There." <br> "Alright, lay on your stomach and I'll knock you out." <br> I did as I was told and felt two shaky fingers press into the pressure point behind my jaw and I was out. <br> I woke up and moved. My lower back hurt and something crusty split around where the stitches had been. I put my hand back and lowered it jently over the surgical cut. It had been sealed up. I looked back and realized the entire lower half of my back was crusted in blood. <br> I heard something slimy move to my left and turned over in bed. There on the table was a cream-colored sack about as big as a fist. Seb had done it! <br> I looked around and realized no one was there. I looked at the clock. It was dinner time. <br> I grabbed my shirt and threw it on, then walked down to the cafeteria. I wasn't hungry so I just sat with a group of boys about my age. We talked about what life had been like for each of us outside of the Asylum. <br> We returned to our cells and I went straight to sleep. I slept incredibly well after three nights of thossing and turning in pain. <br> I woke up just before breakfast and reached into my mattress. There it was. <br> I pulled a knife out and looked at the Guardian. <br> I was finally going to end this. I picked it up and and pulled the knife back, preparing to end this horrid creature's life. <br> I was about to swing when I felt a cold hand grab my knife arm from behind a spin me around. It was Ricky, Seb's brother. <br> Before I could react, he punched me across the face and I fell onto my back, the room falling away from me as I lost consciousness. <br> (Hey guys, sorry for the short chapter. I usually right more but I wanted to tell you about my two new stories, "Black Tides" and "Die Again." Read more about them at 'fanfiction' res 3. Thanks for all the support.)

This is one of those books that you cannot get away from no matter what you do. He's then captured and sentenced aboard a ship called the Straighjacket.   This book is a complete emotional roller coaster ride.  You've certainly got to sit down and read it.  I couldn't manage to get myself away from the computer long enough. .

Asylum The Circea Tales by Ashley Hodges Bazer Captain Chase Leighton, a member of the rebel Ghosts, has been fighting against the cruel forces of the Legacy. He and his wife, Trista will soon celebrate their first wedding anniversary when disaster strikes. While sent out on an assignment, Trista is taken hostage by the enemy Legacy and is used as a medical experiment. Her memories of Chase and her previous life are wiped clean and replaced with new memories and a new identity among the Legacy. Chase is determined to rescue her, but his attempt fails and he and his crew are being held on a spaceship for the insane, undergoing shock treatments to ensure their compliance. Will he be able to escape and rescue her, or has he lost her forever? Will she ever remember him? The author writes a tale with many twists and turns in a sci-fi setting. The plot kept me reading, although the names and the abbreviations of some of the people and equipment confused me. Ms. Bazer did not fully explain &ldquo;Logia&rdquo; which further added to my confusion. However, once I deduced the meanings of the words and abbreviations, I enjoyed the story. (She does include a glossary at the end of the book, but I wasn&rsquo;t aware of it until I had finished the book.) I would read a sequel if one is available. If you enjoy sci-fi with a slice of romance, you will enjoy this book. I appreciate receiving a free copy from the publisher and this is my honest review.

I was really excited to read Asylum by Ashley Hodges Bazer. I'm quite the fan of dystopian fiction, as I'm sure you can easily figure out. Asylum did not disappoint. The story was intriguing and interesting. It took off quickly and kept a fast pace. This made it exciting to read and kept my attention. The story follows a newlywed couple, Chase and Trista, who live in space. They are in service to their King who was disthroned by a corrupt government called the Legacy. In hopes of getting Chase to their one year anniversary surprise party on time, Trista takes an assignment for him. Doing so causes her to be taken by the Legacy. Chase refuses to believe that Trista has been executed and searches for her despite warnings to stop. The book is part of a larger series and so it lacked the character development that is usually part of the beginnings of books. I recommend that you start at the beginning of the ten book series. I&rsquo;m guessing that the other books would make more sense after that one. There was a helpful reference in the back, I just didn&rsquo;t find it until I was finished. Most things I had correctly figured out due to the context of the book. The backstory that was missing, however, made parts of the book confusing, though they didn&rsquo;t necessarily take away from the story. Overall I was really impressed with this book and was so happy to finally have some Christian dystopian (or science fiction) literature to read. I am going to be figuring out how to get my hands on the other books.
