Life was never the same again after The Fall, especially for those born with certain gifts that set them apart from others. Gifts that doomed those like Wren to a life of slavery with no hope of escape or turned a man like Jere into an unwilling master. When a fiery tragedy brings Jere into Wren’s life it becomes clear that this new master is like nobody else Wren has ever known. How does a slave protect himself from someone unpredictable? Can love really exist between master and slave, or will it destroy them both?
Ya know, I have to say that this writer/author is not afraid to take that plunge and write what most of us think about writing, or wishing we could write. She has no problem at all putting down the dark angst and working it and kneading it and rolling it until it’s paper thin, then picks it up and cuts people with it…I’m not even kidding here. Her words do cut like a knife, or a thin paper, paper cuts…And she makes no apologies either. I am impressed by her to be honest. These two stories are long, very long, and so much happened in them that I’m afraid to start writing about it because I’ll never shut up. To say that they are good, fantastic, amazing, none of those words can touch what they truly are. Most people are afraid of their reading audience, about what they’ll say when they read a story that lingers on non-con everything. We’re talking slaves here though, and in the world that the author created, which is many years in the future, and since they are slaves all is a go. No matter what it is. Nothing is against the rules and we do see instances of that by other characters in this two part series.
In the first story a man inherits a home, a medical office, and a slave. A freeman who lives in a state where slaves weren’t kept, who moved to a place where slaves were kept…a man who knew nothing about owning a slave now has to learn how to do that without looking like the towns fool…thankfully the slave is smarter than his ex cruel master gave him credit for…I mean when I met the young slave he was damn near dead from a house fire…burnt up, dying young man…then Jere saves him and brings him back to life and gives him purpose…reading the stories and watching them unfold, going through the hard times, sad times, happy times and glorious ones, it made this read so worth it to me.
Wren is not just a slave though..he has a couple of interesting gifts, a speed gift is one…that comes in handy for Jere when they are working in the clinic or when the house needs cleaning…or even when they need something from the store…and one time Wren rushed off to the store without a permission slip and ended up in the police station being whipped for Jere’s mistake! I mean there’s a lot that happens in these stories that I could go on and on about but I won’t…I will say, I give them both five kisses. Go get your copy and support this author. She’s fantastic and needs to be praised for her gift.
Sequel to Inherent Gifts:
Jere never wanted to be a slave owner, but despite that, he and his slave Wren are buidling a life together. Yet, a new addition to their household challenges their relationship. Jealousy, anger, and broken slaves dominate Jere’s world as he continues to navigate a slave state that seems intent on forcing Jere to be a master in more than just name. With all of Hojer watching, Jere fights to save a young life and his fragile relationship. If he fails at either, he could lose everything.
In this second story Wren and Jere open their home to another slave that will most likely be the very death of them..or something like that! Though I liked the first book better than this one, it’s pretty good too…I dunno why the writer added the girl but it did show many sides of both Jere and Wren, as far as how thin their patience could be pulled. Talk about an understanding and very patient man, Jere is it..he’s amazing and I adore him. Wren has had a lot to deal with by his former cruel master so I understand his reluctance with the way Jere does most things. But when we are dealing with a free man now in a slave city and being forced to put on airs that he’s not comfy putting on, there’s bound to be issues…and there is…four kisses from me!
