I enjoyed the gritty, post-apocalyptic setting and the sexual tension between the prisoner who stays strong despite beatings, torture, and an uncertain future, and the soldier assigned to extract information from him. What I didn't enjoy so much was how this devolved into a too-sweet romance between two men who acted like boys. “Shh,” he soothed. “It’s okay, sweet one. You’re safe.”Do grown men really talk that way to each other?
