This story was quite a surprise. I came across it by accident and didn't know if I would like it but took a chance based on all the great reviews. I thought I would be squicked out by a lot (there are a lot of dark and different themes in this story) or not be able to take the story seriously (Ogres?), but I read this like a person obsessed.

The author has a unique talent for drawing you into the story, making it real and believable. I was also impressed how the author made both main characters likable, despite one doing really bad things to the other (uh, yeah). The plot was interesting and the twists and turns kept you on an emotional roller coaster.

I have to warn to say though, that I had to read some scenes through my fingers, especially one at the beginning and another at the end which were more over the top dark and difficult, but the story was well worth the effort.

7.0% "...Bloodraven said a sharp word and accompanied it by a knee to the back of Yhalen’s leg, making the limb give way and spilling him to the furs of the pallet. He tried to twist around, instinctively wanting a more advantageous position, but the ogre had wrapped his hand in Yhalen’s hair and used it...to keep him in place, pressing his shoulders down to the furs as he crouched down behind the trembling human" 23 comments

Loederkoningin My god, that status update alone makes me go weak in the knees again. I have no idea what's with this book, but certain scenes I can just read over and over again and never get enough of them. I'm so ashamed! Yet, not really...bwhaha!>:D

Julz Squee! Another lover of Bloodraven! I'm so happy!

I love that scene too, along with the dungeon and Bloodraven chasing him around the bedroom. I know it means I'm terrible, but this is one of my all time favorite stories. I've read it through twice and have went back and skimmed my favorite parts when I can't find something that grabs me. I would have never thought I could love a story with a green MC. Lol!

Loederkoningin Oh yes! YES! Mine too, and I did that too.

Besides *ahem* each and every scene in which Bloodraven uses Yhalen, those are my very favorite scenes as well. The one with Yhalen grabbing the poker to..I entirely forgot how to breathe...and the dungeon scenes; a big thank you to the witch bitch! >:D

I highlighted 'em all for my convenience..*maniacal laughter*

Julz Lol! Absolutely D/s at its finest. >:D

Ugh, now I really hate going into work. Definitely something else I'd rather be doing right now. ;D
