"I really don't remember much, but I remember there is this story with a girl...I'm thinking she's in her early teens or maybe pre-teen. She gets into trouble, and ends up with a grotesque executioner/gravedigger who lived in a dungeon, but he ends up not wanting to hurt her because she's a child. I think he dies...but maybe not. I do remember she ends up in a hole and has to dig her way out." Originally posted Jul 4, 2018
I read this some time between 2016 and 2017 and I'm pretty sure it was a new release at the time. (So I was 22-23 at the time)
I can't remember the title or any of the character names.
All I remember is a scene where the female protag. (I think she was an older teen, or young adult, since she triggers a memory about the guy's little sister.) was sent to this 'executioner or grave digger" type guy who was slow and bad with people but was really good at killing, torturing, and butchering people (gruesome I know, also the girl was a thief or something similar) anyway this renowned killer sees this girl, and is unable to kill her, as he is reminded of a little sister when they were kids. Somehow she gets away, I forget what happens to the guy, but she ends up digging her way out of the underground dungeon area and escapes.
