Follow Noel, a captured rebel of the human Resistance, as he endures his
punishment at the hands of his supernatural enemies, the vampires. See
where his fate lies. Highly erotic and extremely dark and twisted. Prepare
I’ve been betrayed by someone I trusted. Because of him, I was captured by
my loathed enemy: the vampires. Right now the sun is still high in the
sky, but I know when it sets, I’m as good as dead. They can’t wait to get
their fangs into me.
I guess some would say I have it coming. I did raise a lot of hell with my
Resistance crew, and I was planning on raising a hell of a lot more at
dawn before I was sold out by Jonah. The vampires, werewolves, and dragons
have been trying to track me down for months, and I’d always been two
steps ahead of them.
I guess my number is up. I just hope they make it quick. You see, the
vampires in my reality aren’t the romantic lot you read about in books.
They don’t sparkle or hang out at high schools with their teenage
girlfriends. Hell no. Vampires are brutal, calculating, sadistic, and
bloodthirsty. As a matter of fact, all of the monsters are! That’s how
they were able to take over the world so easily and change an entire
civilization to suit their needs. Whatever happens, I know it’s not going
to be pretty, so I’m preparing myself for the worst. May God help me.
Warning: This novel contains hardcore sexual situations between men, not
meant for sensitive eyes. I’m talking crude, lewd, and full of attitude.
This series will most likely either offend you or get ya revved up. There
will be no punches being pulled whatsoever, so you’ve been warned. Mature
adult content meant for listeners looking for something dark, taboo, sexy,
and unapologetic in their paranormal erotica. This is not a romance.
Take the warnings seriously; this is a dark book. There’s rape, torture,
violence, corruption, and there’s no redemption or a counterpoint to
lighten the mood.
Noel, our protagonist, is a resistance fighter against the vampire rulers
of his dystopian society, betrayed by one of his fellow rebels and made a
prisoner of the vampires.
The vampire ruler Theoden enacts a cruel revenge against him by making him
into a vampire. Theoden’s powers are vast, nearly godlike. He can read
Noel’s every thought, punishing him even for rebellious thoughts. He and
his vampire “sons”, other men he’s made into vampires, begin a methodical
process of breaking and corrupting Noel. He’s subjected to sadistic
torture beyond what a human could survive, sexually assaulted and his mind
tampered with to ensure he enjoys it and comes to crave it. That he does
enjoy the sex despite not consenting is problematic, but if that bothers
you, this really isn’t the book for you.
Some of the torture went a little far for me (a silver encasement to
destroy his tongue – which regenerates due to his vampire powers was
pretty disturbing to me) and some of the kink a little raunchy too (a
urine douche must do it for somebody but I didn’t find the concept
appealing), but there’s something not unlike the mindset of eating a hot
pepper you know will make you suffer but you just want to prove you can do
it in the challenge of a book like this. I feel like my kink bragging
rights went up a notch just for making it all the way through. Highlights
include forced cross dressing and feminization, double penetration, the
before mentioned urine douche, and lots and lots of hard, sloppy man on
man (and then some) action.
Master Theoden has a real son kink. His collection of lovers are all
expected to think of him as their father and brothers to each other. There
is no romance, instead Noel’s journey is accepting his new family and a
sexuality that’s evolving whether he likes it or not. Noel learns it’s
hopeless to rebel and that his only choices are to embrace his new life or
suffer horribly. This new life includes killing to satisfy his hunger, to
sometimes rape to satisfy his lusts. His corruption is disturbing. The
book is nearly non stop sex, and it’s often hot, but pretty much always a
The strongest scene in the book for me was Theoden and Noel being hosted
by a mortal straight couple, and Theoden forces Noel to have sex with them
both(the only sex scene with a woman). The couple clearly don’t want to do
this but aren’t given a choice, any more than Noel is. It’s interesting to
see Noel forced into a position of an abuser after the whole book has been
him being victimized.
While I found a lot of the rape and torture disturbing, I still found a
lot of the book hot and I’m curious to see what happens next in Noel’s
journey. There are several sequels and I intend to listen to the next one.
Despite my squeamishness at parts of the story my interest is still
Narrator Arthur Byrd does a good job of performing a role in nearly non
stop sexual situations. He often does a great job of enhancing the reading
with a sexually heightened performance.
