shiningones6x9

Title: The Shining Ones (The Eternal Dungeon – Side Story to Series)
Author Name & Publisher: Dusk Peterson
Publication Date & Length: January 17, 2016 – 72 pgs

Synopsis

“He was skilled by now at making innocuous remarks in the presence of the Shining Ones. Nobody had even guessed that he knew what they were.”

The Eternal Dungeon is filled with prisoners who shine like the sun.

No one knows this except Barrett Boyd, a guard notorious for having survived a disciplinary punishment that should have killed him. He is also notorious for his rebellion against the authorities of the royal prison. At a pivotal time in the Eternal Dungeon’s history, when abusive practices of the past may finally be abolished, Barrett finds himself drawn to the mystery of a younger guard, Clifford Crofford, who claims that he and Barrett are love-mates.

Barrett has no memory of this. He has no memory of anything before his punishment. What does the past matter, compared to Barrett’s determination to protect the prisoners? But Barrett cannot ignore his bond with Clifford, and the closer that Barrett comes to Clifford, the more the danger arises that Clifford will question Barrett’s sanity. . . .

This novelette (miniature novel) of disability and love can be read on its own or as a side story in The Eternal Dungeon, an award-winning speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips.

The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Dark Light, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael’s House, and The Eternal Dungeon) about disreputable men on the margins of society, and the men and women who care for them. Set between the 1880s and the 1910s, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. One of the series in the cycle, Waterman, combines elements of the 1910s with retrofuturistic imagery from the 1960s.

FiveStars

Everything Dusk Peterson writes is ridiculously deep, rich, and satisfying. The Shining Ones is no exception. It was strikingly beautiful. The prose lingers and swirls. I’ve read many of the Life Prison / Eternal Dungeon stories and this one is my favorite.
The criticisms are fair. Dusk writes beginnings, sometimes middles, but never endings. There’s no sex in this. It’s short. Past the end of this short story are tantalizing previews of other stories—also beginnings without endings.
Dusk absolutely murders world-building. I want it to all come together in some crashing one million word epic fantasy cycle. But right now I have The Shining Ones, and I am drunk on living the experiences of imprisoned men.
If you love the series, you’ll probably be okay. If you haven’t read anything by Dusk, this is a great place to start.

Publication Date: February 22, 2016

Synopsis

“‘This prisoner deserves special treatment.’ The hooded man looked over at the young man again.”

Elsdon Taylor, a prisoner accused of committing a terrible murder. Layle Smith, a torturer with a terrible past. Their meeting in the Eternal Dungeon appears certain to bring out the worst in both men.

Yet neither man is quite what he appears. As the prisoner and his torturer begin to be drawn toward each other, the ripple effects of their meeting will have a powerful impact on other inhabitants of the Eternal Dungeon: Layle’s faithful guard, struggling to contain his doubts. A younger guard determined to take any shortcuts necessary to ensure that his life follows the path he has already chosen. An old love from Layle’s past, still sorrowing. And most of all, a prisoner who has not yet arrived at the Eternal Dungeon, but whose fate will depend on how Layle handles Elsdon Taylor . . . and on how Elsdon handles Layle Smith.

A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards (within the “The Eternal Dungeon” omnibus), this tale of love and adventure can be read on its own or as the first volume in The Eternal Dungeon, a speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips.

The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael’s House, The Eternal Dungeon, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

Excerpt

“Do you have any questions?” the Seeker asked. “About the routine of the dungeon? The times you will be fed? The questions you will be asked? The instruments of torture I use?”

The faintness went beyond Elsdon’s voice this time and entered his body. He could feel the sweat upon his skin; he wondered whether he had turned white. He blurted out, “What if I’m innocent?”

The Seeker’s gaze did not waver. “If you are innocent, then I trust that our time together will be short. I would far rather find a prisoner innocent than guilty; too many prisoners are sent to us, and the quicker that we can release them from here, the better. If your release is to the lighted world rather than to the executioner, it is likely to come more quickly. But we are commissioned by the Queen to ascertain the truth of accusations of death-sentence crimes, and we are committed to fulfill that commission. Please don’t waste my time with false pleas of innocence, Mr. Taylor. It will only make our time together more difficult.”

This world the author created in this book was amazing!

The whole different take on vampires, I thought it was really awesome! This was a very short story so I do not want to go to much into it and accidently spoil anything.

I loved the characters in this book and the way this author wrote this story. You just start getting to know Khaz and Noah which was awesome but at the same time sad because you can not help wanting to know more about them. There was a steam in this book and what the vampires are like in this world. After reading this I can not wait to read the next book in this series!

So I will leave this review with… I loved this Novella and would definitely recommend it!

This was an interesting story that plays off what would happen if humans weren’t in control anymore.
Although I connected to both characters and really enjoyed watching their relationship develop and evolve as the story progressed, I felt like at times I just didn’t understand what was going on. Not to mention the ending. I felt like we were sort of left hanging on this ledge and wouldn’t be getting any answers or solution to the situation, which kind of sucked.
All in all though, it was a good story that I would recommend.

Synopsis

In this sequel to Dominus, Gaius Fabius Rufus, the victorious general of Rome’s brutal Dacian Wars, finds his loyalties and his affections pulled in different directions. Should he return to Rome and secure his claim to the imperial throne, or remain at his seaside villa and protect his pleasure slave, the fierce Dacian prince, Allerix?

Retaliation for the murder of his beloved friend beckons him home, but his desire for justice could put both him and Allerix in mortal danger. As Gaius’s deceptions multiply, another tragedy strikes. Will the Lion of the Lucky IV Legion be forced to sacrifice his besotted heart to achieve his aspirations for supreme power?

Every moment since Allerix’s violent capture has tested the young prince’s fortitude and cunning. If he can kill the triumphant emperor who decimated his Dacian nation, revenge and immortality will be his glorious, everlasting rewards. But to realize his scheme for vengeance, he must deceive the Roman master whose body he lusts, the handsome, arrogant man whom he has grown to adore and admire. Can two former enemies—the conqueror and the conquered—find trust and true love, or are the consequences of war destined to tear them apart? Can Gaius and Allerix survive the perilous games of Rome?

Dominus is a plot-packed erotic m/m fantasy set in ancient Rome during the reign of Emperor Trajan (AD 98-117).

Games of Rome is the second book in this alternative history saga—a tumultuous journey of forbidden love, humor, sex, friendship, political intrigue, deception, and murder

Excerpt

“On your knees, Allerix. There’s to be no screaming here at Domina’s estate, not with Avia sleeping down the hall from my guest room. Will you be able to stifle your cries?”

Alle looked up and swallowed. “You’d better gag me, sir.”

Gaius laughed. “Wise answer. I intend to spank your fit bum until your fucking toes tingle. And once I’ve slapped your arse scarlet hot, I’ll introduce you to a most wicked device I’ve brought from the playroom. Do you have any idea how much I love watching a boy squirm in ecstatic frustration, how much I enjoy denying him his exquisite release?”

Alle exhaled loudly but said nothing.

“That was a direct fucking question, Alle.”

“Yes, Dominus.”

“If I’m satisfied with your obedience, I’ll impale your tight heat until my thick, noble cream spills out of your arse and drips down your long, furry legs. And if you beg sweetly, I might suck your gorgeous cock until you come so hard those beautiful eyes of yours roll back in your fucking skull.”

Synopsis

Orley Garrick is known throughout Angland not only as the man with two dukedoms but also as the hero who survived a brutal kidnapping at the hands of Nafoleon’s army, never once betraying the secrets of His Majesty. Still haunted by his memories, Orley pushes his crippled body to dangerous limits, all in an attempt to run from the demons of his past.

Until he meets Chester Boland, a maid in his friend’s household. Orley is besieged by desire for this gorgeous male woman, and by a connection he cannot ignore. But there are those within the Remmington Realm who take issue with the Duke’s choice—especially given Chester’s Tafrican lineage.

Having stared death in the face and won, Orley proposes they steal away and elope. However, before they can begin their new life, they uncover dangerous secrets that go deeper than they could ever imagine—involving those they trust the most.

Orley and Chester must discover exactly how deep these secrets run before their enemies make sure Chester is removed from Orley’s arms… forever.

Let me say this world this author created was amazing! This is a warning that this is a MPEG book I know some are okay with that like me and some not so much! I do have to say the way the they delivered the baby was very different then anything I have read before.

Now I will admit I did not read the first book in this series before this one and I was honestly so lost through some of this book. I would definitely recommend reading the first book in this series before this one.

Orley is a duke who has fought in war and still has the scars both emotional and physically from this. He is visiting a good friend and is woken by the maid Chester which he feels a instant attraction towards. Chester also feels the same attraction towards Orley. They both go through a lot to be together.

Now with this book because I did not read the first book it took me awhile to figure out what was going on in this world. Chester was born a man but since he has female reproductive organs she/he is actually considered a woman just like some of the men in this world are born woman. The sex you were born is the name you are given hence Chester who was born a man but is a woman. I hope I explained that right. This is a very different take on transgender than I have ever read before and can I say I loved how the author wrote these characters even though it did take me awhile to figure everyone out.

Now as much as I loved these two characters and their story I have to admit there were a few parts that did drag for me.. But otherwise this book was filled with this amazing world that was created by this author that had some action, angst and so much steam.

All together I really liked this book!
I would recommend this book!

Excerpt

THE SHARP retort of gunfire exploded around Orley Garrick, Duke of Whitcomb, and he ducked, trying to avoid the debris and the bodies of fallen soldiers around him as he surged forward. The smoke from the countless rifles burned his eyes as he desperately looked for the person who had caught his eye. He heard the cries of the dying calling out to him as he rode his horse farther into the thick of battle. Using his sword, he cut down an enemy soldier who raced toward him, mouth open as he let out a battle cry. Orley closed his eyes against the spray of blood across his face and blocked out the sound of the man’s death gurgle as he fell to the ground beneath his own horse.

Orley raced on toward the figure in white who didn’t belong on the battlefield. He called out a warning, telling the woman to be careful, because there was no way a man would be on a battlefield wearing a long, flowing white chemise, free of dust and bloodstain, appearing almost angelic among the crowd of soldiers. The woman didn’t stop. Instead she walked straight toward the commander of the enemy soldiers, and fear filled Orley. He wasn’t sure why; he didn’t know the woman, and yet he could not let anything happen to her.

At that moment, the woman turned to look at him, and Orley gasped when he realized the woman in front of him was not female as he’d suspected but male. Why in the world was a lady on the battlefield?

“You should not be here!” he yelled, trying to warn the male, but just as he got close enough to lift the woman onto the back of his horse, an enemy soldier plunged his sword through the woman’s back and out through his chest.

Orley watched helplessly as the woman’s eyes widened moments before he collapsed to the ground, and a grief unlike aught he’d ever experienced ripped through him.

He was not sure how he knew, but the dying woman belonged to him, and someone had just taken him away.

Tossing his head back, Orley let out an anguished shout at the heavens.

This book was a awesome start to this series!
This is a warning this is a MPEG novel which I know some are okay with and some not so much. For me I thought it worked perfectly in this book.

Corin is a doctor who got in trouble for something he really should have not been in trouble for. He is assigned a new job on a ship which is where he meets his new friends. They must abandon ship and take a pod to the closet planet which is where is meets Kel.
I have to say the world this author created in this book was amazing!
You get so much action with this book and meet so many new characters. There really so much going on with this book but the way everything worked so well together was perfect.
Now I will say the way he had the baby and how the baby needs to feed was very odd.. But their aliens so I rolled with it lol. I loved the way the author wrote these characters with all their little quirks but also the way they all cared for each other like they were family.
Once I started this book I was on the edge of my seat until I finished this. Now I can not wait to find out what will happen with Taylor, Dax and the other Avanti.

All together I loved this book!

I would definitely recommend this book!

Excerpt

With a nod to one of the four guards at the door’s entrance, Carn led them into the room. Following behind him, they walked right up to the massive table sat at the end. Around the table were stood six men, they must have ranged in ages from late teens to mid-sixties. They all looked weary and haggard, their bodies drooping where they stood. Maps, paperwork and cups littered the table in front of them.

One of them turned to Carn who was standing at the front of Corin’s group. “Damn it, Carn, I told you we weren’t to be disturbed for anything. I don’t care who the latest bloody delegate from the Alliance is. Now is not the time.” A huge frown accompanied the man’s words.

“Laird Kel, these aren’t delegates. I think you are going to want to hear this. They came asking for you as Kel, saying it was about a young girl named Eliya,” Carn cautiously spoke, wary of upsetting any of the men around the table.

All around them heads shot up from what they were focused on. Suddenly every pair of eyes in the room was focused on them with a laser like intensity.

“What do you know about Eliya?” The man named Kel demanded.

Corin watched as he stalked towards them. His movements, while predatory, were graceful. He was close to seven feet of solid planes and hard muscles. His skin was a golden bronze which seemed to glisten in the lights around him. His hair was a mid-blonde, and flowed to just past his shoulders. Leather bracers covered his forearms while second, smaller leather circlets were wrapped around each bicep. Leather trousers were moulded to his thighs. Corin’s heart began to beat faster. Never had a first glance at someone affected him as it did now.

Laird Kelin was rugged in appearance. While still young, his face had a slightly rugged visage which was likely due to many hours spent outdoors. His eyes were both brown and green, with the green bleeding into the brown on the outer edges. He had a strong nose, coupled with a square jaw, and a dusting of facial hair, that just added to his overall ruggedness.

Corin’s cock went from soft, to rock hard and aching instantly. Damn this was a man he would happily have under him, over him, inside him. In fact, he would take him any which way he could. Tate shot Corin a questioning glance and Corin realised he hadn’t been able to hide his reaction from his friend.

Shooting a glance at Tate and shaking his head, Corin boldly stepped forward. “I need to know who you are to Eliya before I can say anything.”

A second later one of the other men stood around the table jumped over it, and was hurtling towards Corin with a look of murderous intent on his face. Just as he got to Corin, he threw a punch that never landed. Instead, Tate stepped between Corin and Eliya, who was still asleep in the sling, and this new man. The punch hit him square in the abdomen, the pain was instantaneous, he staggered back, all the air gone from his lungs. Tate could feel his stitches rip open from the impact. Trying to suck in a deep breath, he called on all his years of training with the Avanti and pushed the pain into the recesses of his mind and forced his body back to standing whilst simultaneously pulling his knife from the sheath at his side.

“Make another move towards him again and I’ll kill you. You want him? You have to go through me first, and I promise you, I. Will. Win. You have no idea what you nearly did there.” Tate growled at the man, his stance wide, both aggressive and defensive at the same time.

“Do you know who I am?” The new man demanded as he bared his teeth at Tate.

“No,” Tate replied. “And frankly, I don’t care. Now. Back. The. Fuck. Off.”

They watched as the man named Kel placed a restraining arm across the other man’s chest. “Leave it, Tir, let me deal with this. I mean it. We won’t find anything out if we beat them. They came to us willingly, give them a chance to explain.”

They all watched the man called Tir run his hands over his face before he gave a small nod and took two small steps back.

Kel raised an eyebrow at him, sighed and then turned back to Corin. There were several emotions swirling through his gaze, but his voice was calm when he spoke again. “I am Laird Kelin Tharn, son of the Chieftain of this clan and Eliya is my niece, Laird Tirathon Tharn is her father. She was kidnapped two weeks ago with her nurse when they were walking the grounds. We have heard nothing since. There has been no ransom demands, no sightings, nothing. We have searched and searched and no trace has yet been found. The entire clan is grief stricken. As you can see, my brother is barely holding it together. Now. What. Do. You. Know.” His voice rose slightly as he struggled not to let his impatience show.

Corin looked at Tate, his eyes registering the fact the Tate looked clammy once again, they nodded to one another and Corin reached up to slowly untie the cloak from around him. He gently lifted the sleeping form of Eliya from the sling before looking up at Kel and quietly asking, “is this her?”

Gasps echoed all round, a choked sob came from Tir’s direction before he quickly lifted her from Corin’s arm, tears streaming down his face. Smiles shone around the room as a small voice whispered, “Papi?”

Quickly a group surrounded the reunited father and daughter, cheers echoed around the room. A wave of happiness ran through the chamber and out the doors as word passed from one guard to another. Shouts of joy could be heard from the hallways as the news spread. A soft whimper from beside Corin saw him snapping his head to look at Tate.

4 and 3 Stars for The Stowaway (Journey of the Wyvern #1) by Jade Archer #MFM

Cover

Title: The Stowaway (Journey of the Wyvern #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Jade Archer (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: August 8, 2011 – 91 pgs

Synopsis

Can one small stowaway teach two hardened warriors a lesson in life and love?

Arek and Devlynn were once part of one of the most vicious gangs of pirates in the galaxy – The Fennrus Group. But when Arek’s little brother was killed trying to follow in Arek’s footsteps, Arek quit. He walked away. And Devlynn went with him – having been devoted to the man since they were children. Unfortunately, no one leaves the Fennrus Group. Not and lives to tell the tale anyway. Forced to lay low if they are to survive, Arek and Devlynn find themselves doing supply runs between the most isolated agricultural communities in the galaxy just to scrape by. Which is how they find themselves with one small, feisty stowaway.

Having recently turned twenty-three, Rachel is faced with what she considers the ultimate enslavement – arranged marriage to two brothers from the neighbouring farming settlement of Thebia 3. So, when she sees an opportunity to escape while waiting from her intended grooms at the local space port she seizes it with both hands. She wants freedom, adventure, the chance to visit every star in the night sky. What she gets is two stubborn, difficult, although admittedly gorgeous, ex-pirates with a temperamental space transport, a vicious past out to get them and little to no idea what to do with the feelings that simmer below the surface between them.

Life with Arek and Devlynn is certain to be an adventure, provided they all survive long enough to enjoy it and Rachel can work a little magic that is.

Arek and Devlynn have been traveling for years together. They fled their home planet and have been trying to make it on their own.  Arek has had a loss of family, Devlynn wants to keep his feelings for Arek to himself.  They are doing a fairly good job of being friends and only friends until Rachel falls in to their lives.
Rachel is a spunky, holds no bar, tells it how it is woman who wants to see the world.
Together, they make a lusty, explosive group.  They complement each other and discover parts of each other that they only fantasized about.
This was very quick read, but it was full of emotion and love.  It was a story about this trio – with very little outside forces coming in to the story.
I am unsure what is going to come of more books to come, as this story seems fairly complete, but we shall see.
AvidReader
ThreeStar
Okay, first off, I’m glad I got to read this free because buying this book for the price listed on Amazon is nuts. $6.13? Really? That’s pretty high for a book that’s like 91 pages. it says 91 on the listing but it seemed even less than that when I was reading. The fair price would have been $2.99 at most. Unless this author is SO popular that the Publisher thought that her e-books are instantly over $5.00.
Anyway, the story itself was just on “okay” for me. It’s about a tomboy named Rachel who was to marry 2 men to honor her family and grow up to be a stay at home mother. Well, she didn’t like that very much and ran away. She hid in a ship getting ready to leave her planet and meets the captain, Arek and his second in command, Dev.
Dev’s been in love with Arek for years and Arek has felt the same, but neither ever told each other of their feelings until Rachel stepped into the picture. This story was very fast paste. After Rachel gets discovered, the story is fast forwarded to 1 week later where Dev and Arek are already in love with Rachel. I dislike fast forwards like this because I wanna read why Dev and Arek fell for her and how. I don’t wanna be just told.
Honestly, even though I liked Rachel, it felt like she was a 3rd wheel. Maybe cause I was more interested in Dev and Arek’s story. lol. They said they loved her, but I feel like they could have been together without her. I didn’t read enough interactions between the 3 of them to be convinced otherwise. See, sometimes fast forwarding a story is a bad idea. The readers miss out on a lot, unless it’s done well. Dev and Arek pushed it from being a 2 STARS to 3 STARS. They were hot together and I saw so much potential for their love story. I think this is a series…not sure if I’ll be reading the next book soon
