    this was a really good short story i m impressed at how she managed to squeeze in a plot complete with twist , relationships, Feelings and kinky times in such a small amount of words there s a cliffhanger but the story s been tied up haha no pun intended at the same time, which is one of my favourite ways to end a story especially a short story definitely one of my favourites from the Don t Read In The Closet Events my only criticism is that it seems like a high fantasy ish setting b this was a really good short story i m impressed at how she managed to squeeze in a plot complete with twist , relationships, Feelings and kinky times in such a small amount of words there s a cliffhanger but the story s been ti...

    Between 3.5 and 4 This was the first few chapters of a novel Or rather that s what it felt like Great worldbuilding, careful and slow characterisation crammed into unfortunately too short a story I d really love to read a leisurely novel version

    3.5This shows a ton of promise, featuring a solid fantasy set up, good characterizations, and several fun plot twists Metelli has a great sense for exotic luxury, and the story features an intriguing juxtaposition between its courtesan hero s taste for lazy decadence and the inner strength and discipline it must have taken to turn himself into such an accomplished assassin Artor s sincere embrace of his new life avoids the usual decadent evil, simple virtuous dichotomies, and beautiful slave 3.5This shows a ton of promise, featuring a solid fantasy set up, good characterizations, and several fun plot twists Metelli has a great sense for exotic luxury, and the story features an intriguing juxtaposition between its courtesan hero s taste for lazy decadence and the inner strength and discipline it must have taken to turn himself into such an accomplished assassin Artor s sincere embrace of his new life avoids the usual decadent evil, simple virtuous dichotomies, and beautiful slave boy cliches Gaheris makes a sexy, smoldering foil, though his character is not as well developed as it might be I had two main issues The first is that the lofty fantasy diction tresses or locks instead of hair, unguents etc risks sounding unduly stilted, especially in dialogue, where it never sounds natural or spontaneous I ll admit to a prejudice here,...

    This was strangely flat, I could sense no genuine emotional depth or connections between the main characters Still, the author clearly went to a great deal of trouble to world build even if at times it was bordering on the dry academic as opposed to the fantasy genre so I think I would have given it at least three stars for that effort Unfortunately there was a sudden and senseless eruption of bdsm, so now it gets two stars and a grumpy acrostic instead Get you...
