Captivity by Nadine Little


Anita Carmichael is her faction’s sweetheart—respected soldier, supporter of the people, sister of their murdered leader. A murder that started the war and plunged Scotland into chaos.

Ten years later, Anita still seeks vengeance, alongside her brother-in-law and her sister’s friends. Her friends.

Or so she thought.

Betrayed by those closest to her and captured by the enemy, she struggles to survive psychotic despots, torture and the hatred of the people who once loved her. Brutalised, scarred and alone, Anita trusts no one, especially the most radical faction who claim to know the answer.

Will she ever discover who killed her sister? And what if the truth destroys everything she’s fought for?

Captivity is a harrowing glimpse of a dystopian Scotland and one woman’s quest for answers. If you like a woman who can handle a gun, a bleak future and fast-paced action, you’ll love Nadine Little’s debut and the first book in her Faction War Chronicles.
