MY STAR RATING
The Tomb. A prison run by inmates; it is home to the most despicable scum of the earth.
Ana, but call me Josh. My life depends on it.
After disguising myself as a man for years, a fluke landed me in the worst possible prison. I may know how to fight but nothing could have prepared me for the depravity of The Tomb.
When the leader of this horrid place, Ax, discovers my secret, I assume that is it—I’m done for. Ready to be tossed to the savages of The Tomb, he instead claims me as his own and teaches me things about my body I never knew possible.
I know I need to use Ax and his desire for me if I’m ever to escape this place and be safe again. But I never expected it would be my heart I needed to protect most.
Incarcerated as a child, I’ve spent most of my life in The Tomb and the last ten years leading it. When a new batch of prisoners come in, I discover a woman hiding in their midst. Her fearlessness intrigues me, and I decide to keep her for myself, and her secret.
Bloodthirsty and ruthless are how I have been described, but I can tell Ana is going to change things. My darkness and addictions seem to dissipate when she’s close, and I fall harder than I ever thought possible. Now to keep her hidden, keep her mine, and ensure no one learns her secret.
The Tomb is a dark prison romance intended for readers 18+
I picked up this book after I read the blurb because it sounded so good and unique!
I don’t think I’ve ever read one with a story quite like this and it intrigued me.
And I’m so glad I did.
It’s a dystopian novel set in a prison that is so rough and dangerous that it doesn’t even have any guards.
They just dump the food there once a month and then step back. Leaving the inmates to do their own thing.
If anyone tries to leave, they get shot on the spot.
No one leaves.
Ana has managed to get herself caught in the most fucked up situation she possibly could have.
She was at the wrong place at the wrong time and now?
Yeah, she’s in an all-male prison that no one ever leaves, dressed like a dude.
In this world, women are treated like they are only good for one thing and no one really cares enough to protect them from the scum of the earth…which seems to be most people if I’m honest.
When she was not much more than a child she was raped and since then she and her brother disguised her as a boy.
Taught her how to walk and talk like a boy.
Dress like a boy and fight like a boy.
Unfortunately, years later, she gets arrested like a boy.
This prison she’s sent to scares the bejeesus outta me.
It makes me think of Sona in the TV show Prison Break.
Filled with extremely scary men who would love nothing more than to get their hands on a female.
On her first day there she manages to attract the attention of two males.
One is the man that rules the roost and the other is a man who likes to rape and torture boys to death.
This dude here has demons. And how could he not?
He’s been raised in this hellish prison since he was six years old.
He has an extreme thirst for violence and bloodshed.
He needs to kill to keep his inner demons quiet…for a while.
You can imagine how much of a beast this man is because he’s managed to keep the title as ruler in this hellhole since he challenged and killed the previous leader when he was 16!
In the latest shipment of prisoners, he spots one young lad and can’t quite put his finger on what’s different about him.
Until he gets him alone and finds out ‘he’ is a ‘she’.
And so he’s kinda like “…hmm…now what?”
This is when shit gets interesting!
My breath is ragged as he explores me with his mouth. I’ve never had an orgasm that wasn’t by my own hand. I feel something building within me beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. He doesn’t let up, bringing me higher up this peak. Just when I think I can’t take it, he pushes a finger inside me. I explode around him, pulling the nearest fabric to my mouth to keep from crying out too loudly. He doesn’t let up and presses another finger inside me, tearing pleasure from me, wave after wave. I had no idea it could feel this like. My entire body quivers, unable to keep still. It takes a while for me to finally come down. When I do, I want more. I crave more. I crave him. I want him deep inside me. “Please,” I whisper, running my fingers through his hair. He plants one last kiss on my clit making me shudder, before bringing his mouth back up to mine. I can taste myself on him and I am surprised by how erotic I find it. My nails dig into his shoulders as I press my hips towards him, giving him the permission of my body. A slight moment of panic when I feel his hardness at my entrance, but his lips find mine and I quickly melt back into them. I’m grateful he is going slowly, knowing full well he could tear me apart if he wanted to. I plan to show him my gratitude with my body, which pulses and aches for him. Shifting my hips forward so he slides into my wetness and I gasp against him. I’m so tight it’s painful but when his hand comes down to rub my nub, my body relaxes, and he slides into the hilt. Still inside me he doesn’t move for a moment except to tease my clit until I cry out again, tensing around him. Holy fuck. As I come down, he begins to move his hips, filling me in a way I never thought possible. “Axle,” I moan as his movements get faster. “Let go for me,” he whispers into my ear. My nails dig in tighter and it only seems to spur him on more. I arch my back as his movements quicken, rolling my hips to get as close to him as possible. I feel his body stiffen right before he lets out a mighty roar as he spills deeply into me, pushing me over the edge one last time.
FINAL THOUGHTS on THE TOMB by Ella Burns.
This was such a good read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It started out dark and intense but turned a little ‘insta-love’. Otherwise, it would have been a 5-star read. I found that I wanted him to be more of an alpha-hole before realising how much he felt for her or being gentle with her. I like my men rough and dark to the core though, lol.
Thank you for reading!
