Author: Cecilia London
Series: Bellator Saga #2
Published: August 17, 2015

Summary: (Goodreads)

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?

Part Two of a Six Part Saga. Conscience (approximately 120,000 words) is not a standalone and must be read after the first book in the Bellator Saga, Dissident. All books in the series end in a cliffhanger. For readers 18+. This book contains adult situations including graphic violence, explicit (consensual) sex and light BDSM, psychological and physical trauma, and an oftentimes raw, dark, and gritty plot.


I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

After finishing the first book in the series, Dissident, I was extremely frustrated when Cecilia London left us with a huge cliff-hanger! So I was extremely excited to get my hands on the next installment in the Bellator Series. Conscience picks up right where Dissident left off. Caroline is cuffed to a hospital bed with no clue as to where she is. I was a big fan of Caroline in the first book, I found her very entertaining and witty (and loved her passion for baseball!). In Conscience, we get to see a different side of Caroline. Especially in the present scenes. She watches person after person who either has helped her or who she loves, die because of her. Despite all of this, she remains strong and maintains the belief the Jack will come for her. We definitely get a little more of Jack in this one…and I am not complaining! Again, the scenes between Caroline and Jack are entertaining as always, but a whole lot steamier!

I found that my attention kind of wavered in Dissident. This was not the case with Conscience, I was hooked from beginning to end! One of the problems I had with Dissident was the change in POV between multiple characters. I loved that this one was solely in Caroline’s POV, I think it made a big difference in how much I enjoyed this book. I shouldn’t have been surprised by the ending (because we know how much Cecilia enjoys her cliff-hangers!) but I was completely shocked! I can’t wait to see what happens next! I would highly recommend this book!
