Book 3 in the Consortium Series

In this next edition of her captivity, ‘UnderCurrents’ continues Avril’s story trying to balance her survival with her desire to take down the Consortium.

As Sir’s twisted pleasures expand in UnderCurrents, can Avril endure long enough to satisfy his sadistic thirst? Or will she die as he overwhelms her pain tolerance? Avril’s only chance for survival depends on pleasing her callous master. Can she endure long enough to quench his thirst or succumb to an agonizing death?

She knows enough of her situation that escape is impossible. Even if she can get away, Sir would use the resources of the Consortium for hunting her down and return her to his clutches. Her only hope is taking down the Consortium, granting her a chance to return to a normal life, even if it’s not her old life.

Her strategy to keep her alive seems to work. Unfortunately, she’s no closer to taking down the organization that stole and sent her into a life of bondage. Forced to serve and submit, spending time in his dungeons extracting her screams was a necessary consequence to her plan.

Putting her plan into action requires decisions and behaviors she’s uncomfortable with, knowing they may forever damn her soul. She murdered others, knowing full well she will never forgive herself. Her only hope for redemption is her hope that God will forgive her, saving innocent souls from suffering her fate.

Mr. Verry’s writing seems to capture the subject of the Sex Trafficking trade and how this “Trade” is very likely to happen and keep hidden for years and years. He focuses on a few select characters in his book and tells their story.

I have finished “Undercurrents” and enjoyed every word! I would rate it 5 stars. Naturally it keeps your interest. Avril’s story is very interesting and in the last couple of chapters I get the sense that she is beginning to enjoy being with “Sir” and likes participating in the torture. She has been with him for a few years now is “trying to make the best of it” as she has said, but I can’t help but wonder if she is resigning herself to her fate. Don’t know if I want her to be a member of the Consortium or not!

I love wondering about the different ways this story can go – I’m looking so forward to seeing where Heather and her father will end up. And what a surprise with Shelby! Katie’s story can also go down so many different roads.

Please keep your readers abreast of the next book; you left so many hints in Undercurrents as to what can happen in the future of The Consortium, Avril, Katie, Heather, etc. Looking forward to more from you. I think of all different avenues you can go to – can’t wait!!

Love your writing, Mr. Verry and wish you great success in future projects!
