"I stood in the middle of the room, unmoving – I barely breathed. My life had just become surreal, impossible, and one enormous lie. I needed to go, to run somewhere, anywhere to beat back the reality that was rapidly closing in around me. The image of him was burned into my retina, flashing over and over again like a warning. He was trapped somewhere between human and decidedly not, and I realized that was my new reality. I was too."
After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural. As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered. When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life. She chooses poorly. Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it.

Caged begins when Ruby, whose been alone most of her life, ends up having a guy keep popping up in strange places. She doesn't really know him, and she ignores all the warning signs of what it means for him to be there, that is until another man comes along who informs her of what's really going on. Now, she must choose who to believe, and why. But, she may not make the correct choice. This book was interesting, and it started off really well. I just didn't like the way it ended, that bugged me a lot. And I was really annoyed with how Ruby started treating Sean after she thought they were getting close. It was beyond frustrating, then with Sean and that other woman drove me nuts too. I hated that part of it, and it made me question what was going on and what would happen in the next book. I'm not sure if I will read more in this series, but I did like this one and I thought it was interesting.
