Conscience by Cecilia London
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Release: August 17, 2015
Length: 421 pages
The Bellator Saga #2

An escape plan foiled…

A determined woman…

One last tiny sliver of hope...

Jack will find me.

The Fed wants answers. And Caroline is determined not to provide them. They pull out all the stops, testing her sanity, testing her strength, testing her humanity.

Jack will find me.

Subject to cruel and merciless treatment at the hands of a government she once trusted, Caroline clings to her sole lifeline, her only chance at maintaining her tenuous hold on reality: her memories of her husband, Jack, her children, Marguerite and Sophie, and the friends who mean the world to her.

Jack will find me.

But what happens when hope starts to fade? How long until her interrogators cross over into the unspeakable sadism she fears ? How long before she finally breaks apart?

Conscience is not a standalone and must be read after the first book in The Bellator Saga, Dissident. Trigger Warning: This book contains graphic violence, and psychological and physical trauma, along with an oftentimes raw, dark, and gritty plot.

For readers 18+. Ends on a cliffhanger.

My Review

Dissident - ★★★★☆

I don't even know what to say here!!

I needed some liquid courage to keep reading this book! It tore me in freaking half!!


I've been bawling my eyes out for most of this book. Cecilia London has propelled herself into a spot on my favourites list. The writing? Phenomenal. Oh my gosh, this author can write her ass off! The plot? Twisty-turny, heart pounding, heart breaking, sensual, loving, torturous, etc.

Again... again I got complacent. I got so caught up in the back story. How Jack and Caroline worked things out from book 1. How they got married. How they became a family. I fell in love with them and their children. I fell in love with their friends. I was so freaking happy for them. I somehow convinced myself that all would be well. How did I do this to myself???


I really don't. Cuz if I did, I would have better prepared myself. Gah!

I was beyond ecstatic that the author chose to explore more eroticism and gave this couple some descriptive scenes. Call me a perv, but these scenes only served to strengthen their bond and further convince me of their intimacy, love, commitment, and devotion.

But like the first book, it was a freaking setup. The author kept switching it up. The political turmoil, the deception and betrayal, and each 'present' or 'the Fed' scene slowly whittled away at my heart and soul. People that I had fallen in love with were DYING!! And poor Caroline had to watch it all happen in silence.


Caroline is a fierce lioness. She's been put through more than the wringer. She's living in hell and has not once faltered. She pissed me off a bit in the first book, but she has completely redeemed herself here. I love her so much. I'm rooting for her and Jack all the way. Shoot, I want to join the rebellion my damn self!

I have no idea what book 3 will have in store for me. I wonder who's even still alive out there. I really hope the book will cover some kind of revolt because my heart just can't take this!
