I liked the story, but I like this author's other books more. This one seems intendended as more of a MM romance, but there is something impersonal about how the characters are presented to the reader. The style is otherwise perfect for her fantasy stories (where the sex happens offstage).
Very interesting (and kind of creepy) alternate universe. It kept making me think of India - with the arranged marriages, strange casts and some descriptions of the clothes (the tunics + pants combination)

I enjoyed this story. Definitely not your typical rent boy/damsel in distress story. The premise was clever and the idea that it was socially acceptable for a family to prostitute one of it's own was rather chilling.
I would have given a higher rating if the author was even a little better at writing sex scenes. They were a distinct flat spot and rather spoiled the pace of the story.
I enjoyed this mostly because of haniel he didnt lethimself become a victim who needed saving he saved himself and even managed to find love.
