Book Blurb

The Dom War changed the world. Without the blood pets provide, masters die. Without the safe haven masters provide, pets die. But the fight over pets is a constant battle that grows more dangerous with each passing second.


Remsen Marrik doesn't know what to do when he inherits a pet from a man he has always been enemies with. Giving Boy up isn't an option because hunters are after the sweet little pet. But can he settle for someone he never chose?


Boy is a pet. He's been one for as long as he can remember. When his old master is killed, Boy is sent to Marrik, the one master that might be able to keep him safe from the hunters that are after him. But Marrik is unlike any master Boy has ever had, and the rules Boy has always followed have changed. Can Boy learn to trust in this new master who seems to want more from him than any master ever has, or will his own fears place him right into the hands of the hunters?


Book Review

In a rather bleak vision of the future, with vampires basically having taken over the world and humans serving as blood slaves, the story of Marrik and his new pet, Boy, offers an odd ray of light and hope that some form of love may have survived. Against the background of a 'Dom War', these two find each other and discover there is much more to their relationship than either one of them expected.  The resulting adjustment is huge, and so is the interference from outside forces. Luckily, Marrik is as determined as he is dominant and will not accept anyone touching Boy.


Boy is hunted for his sweet tasting blood, and is in desperate need of protection. When his old master is killed by Hunters, he flees and manages to survive until he finds Marrik, the man his ownership papers say he was 'transferred' to. As submissive as Boy has been trained to be, he has a core of strength and a will to survive that enable him to keep up not only with his new Master, but help him fight their enemies.


Marrik has never really thought about a permanent pet. His life consists of the occasional encounter until Boy presents himself. There is an underlying need to protect Boy which Marrik cannot explain. The gradual reveal of what is really going on, both between him and Boy and in terms of Marrik's enemies, is the main part of this story. Well, that and the hot sexual encounters the two of them have.


If you like vampires, if you enjoy a futuristic setting that is somewhat bleak, and if a Master/slave relationship evolving into a different form of two men sharing their lives sounds interesting, you may like this book.
