|Plot Summary of Captivity|
Wings Press, July 2002, 165 pp.
Wade and his two friends are camping in The Sanrtiam Wilderness when they are attacked by three vampires. His two companions are killed but Cassandra the leader of the vampires has Wade taken to their lair where she makes him her sex slave. Her actual intention is to turn him into a vampire but he breaks her hold on him
Donavan, a very strong vampire, is a psychiatrist who treats humans and vampires that have just crossed over. He reads newspapers accounts about the savaged two boys and their missing companion and that leads him to conclude that this is Cassandra's doing. Before he reports it to the Darkhour Foundation he scopes out the situation for himself. Cassandra captures Donavan and chains him in the same room containing Wade. Unless one of them can figure out how to escape their imprisonment, they will suffer a grim fate.
Linda Suzane has written a vampire novel that is on the par with the works of Anne Rice. She has given readers a scientific reason for why vampires exist involving genetics and crossbreeding that make the fictional species seem real. It is going to be very difficult to wait for CAPTIVITY'S sequel, FREEDOM.
