Asylum by Ashley Hodges Bazer

This is a book that is a little out of my normal interest zone, but the description caught my interest, so I decided to give it a try. This is a Christian based science fiction story pitting the Ghosts, members of Logia and other followers of the Crown, against the Legacy who are determined to terminate everyone who is associated with the Logia. The Legacy has spent an abundance of energy and resources in coming up with cruel tortures for all Ghosts they capture, and when they capture the wife of one of the gifted captains of the Ghosts, they experiment with one of their newest torture devices, wiping out all her memories.

The story follows Chase, the Ghost captain whose wife has been captured, as he searches for his wife and looks for a way to rescue her. This book is about Chase learning to trust the Crown as he goes on his search, but the underlying theme seems to be the love he has for his wife, as well as the love she retains for him despite all the Legacy’s efforts to remove it. While I did feel that there were some areas of the story that were forced, such as how readily Chase gives up on the idea of vengeance after he has set his heart on it, all in all this was a good book. The book is definitely a page turner, and I was caught up in hoping that Chase would be able to succeed in his mission to get his wife back throughout. This book deals with some gruesome things at times, as you read about the torture that the Legacy inflicts on others, but it is a book I would recommend to my friends or blog readers.
