3.5 Risky stars!! Great continuation.... I'm intrigued

Jere and Wren are forging on in their relationship, even though Jere never wanted or needed a slave. But nevertheless, they are moving through it. So when Jere decides to buy a new slave, it throws their relationship up in the air. So now Jere has to save his relationship and the new slave he's acquired... can he do it??

Book two is just as unique and twisted as the first. I will say I think this one is my favorite of the series so far. I like
An interesting continuation of Cameron's Inherent Gifts, as Jere and Wren continue to juggle their roles as Slave Master/Slave as well as lovers.

In this dystopian society, the only people with any social standing and power are those with pure "mind gifts". Those without any gifts at all remain free but without any real standing or power, while those with physical gifts are put into slavery.

Jere is a doctor with a gift of healing, and arriving from a non-slavery state, he was appalled to find he

Well, it was a big surprise, and not a good one. Nothing in the blurb warned me that 90% of this story would be about Isis, a female slave Jere buys and tries to help. Really, every scene either had Isis in it, or was about dealing with something Isis did, or talking about Isis. Isis eating, Isis not eating, Isis breaking things, Isis getting back her furniture, Isis hurting herself, Isis doing innumerable stupid things, and so forth, and so on. I'm sorry, sure the author has the right to write ...more

Jere finds the idea of slavery repellant, despite inheriting Wren and finding it impossible to set him free or bring him to a non slave state they make the most of their relationship in private whilst conforming to social expectation and propriety in public.

Both men are driven to exhaustion by offering medical interventions not onl

A Joyfully Jay review.

Inherent Risk is the direct sequel to Inherent Gifts and picks up soon after that novel leaves off. Wren and Jere welcome readers back into their home with an easiness that feels like visiting old friends. But the addition of a second slave brings a new level of tension to the storyline. Given how much Jere hates slavery, it’s hard to rationalize his decision to get Isis. It seems like the height of hypocrisy, but then much of Jere’s life in Hojer is the same. Hi

I read volume one and two back to back, although both can probably stand alone.

Stunning character development and world building.
One of the main characters is an alternate reality kind of doctor, and the well researched, realistic medical setting is a real plus. I have a biological sciences background, if not a medical one, and I can't fault any of the science here.

I accept that some suspension of belief is required for alternate reality settings. But too many pseudo-science-fiction writers at
It scared me that things could go so wrong by bringing in a third person into their homes. I'm glad all worked out well but it was a bit nerve wracking, which I guess was the way everyone in the story was feeling.
