JI continues his journey into the behaviour of a human, with a fascination of human sexuality. Paired up with damaged Fern, he discovers a liking for the darker side of sex. Together they seek out the Judge, to inflict retribution. With the help of Aunt M and the black crystals, they battle to create peace among the warring factions to aid them in their quest to find and destroy the Judge. In my opinion, the best book in the series.

Esquisite is the perfect title for such a captivating and multilayered story. I strongly recommend reading the series in order to fully understand the character developments and backstory.

Fern will continue to show her strength and determination, but I feel Ji is the driving force of Possession with his changes.

Although this is the last of the series, I hope to see more of them in possible spin offs

A great ending to a great series

Read as part of the complete Machinery Of Desire series set available from Amazon.

And here's the payoff. Great story, great characters, great sex and a movie-blockbuster-worthy climactic battle.

Well done, and thank you Cari! Very highly recommended - the whole series that is, don't start here.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Cari is the Mistress of Kinkiness! Only she can come up with a series like this and give it a grand finale like Exquisite Possession!

I was waiting to find out what happened to JI after taking over Osta’s body and if he could find Fern along the way.
Well....As it happens,JI needed a bit of time to find out what it meant to be inside a body. And after finding Fern,he found his imagination. And where that took him? That worried him at times. But not enough to not try some stuff out....as long as h

I was excited to read this as I always wanted to have Fern's story after she was disposed of in Acquired Possession. Fern is a strong character who is a survivor and I loved her story and her new romance with JI - who is now a new man. As always from Cari Silverwood this is a unique and exciting story of how Fern and JI enact revenge on the judge. Throughout it all they also learn how to love and depend on each other.

Machinery of Desire, Book 4. Is this the beginning, the end—or both?

SPOILER ALERT: This series should DEFINITELY be read in order. If you don’t, you’ll miss characters and backstory that are absolutely essential. If you haven’t read the first three books, this review may contain spoilers.

Since when does a three-story tall battle mech have a goal, any goal? He’s just a mech after all. But he’s also sun-mad. And…and…how, when did he go from a mech to an organic? Oh, who cares? Jl will do ANYTHING

The first thing that I thought of immediately after reading this epic was a quite from the sci-fi God Stan Lee. "With great power comes great responsibility." It's fiting for a story about a man learning to be human, or humanoid as he calls himself. What a way to end this incredibly layered story that resembles a fairy tale. JI, the humanoid, keeps quoting Shakespeare, and it's in every book. We know from high school how Romeo and Juliet ended, but JI quotes other, lesser known pieces as well, l ...more

This series will grab you and hold on tight - I’m sure it would take a bite out of you if that were possible!
Captivating and erotic, this kinky scifi/fantasy series concludes with Exquisite Possession, although I’ll be praying to Aerthe, mechs, mekkers, and whomever else that the author one day chooses to write more of Aerthe because I LOVE THIS SERIES!
This story focuses on Fern, an awesomely strong and fierce human we oh-so-briefly meet in book one, Acquired Possession, along with JI, an AI m

Damn HOT! This is the fourth book in the series. I must advise that if you have not read the previous three books in the series, it is highly recommended. I should know since I have only read the first book in trying to get ready for this release. As I was in a rush to read it, I haven't read book two or three. I plan to go back and read them though. You can still read this book but I found that I missed out on what happened up to this book. I know both of the main characters as they were introd ...more

If this is your first trip to the wonderful, dark, kinky, engaging, sometimes humorous, always exciting, compelling and deep imagination of Ms. Silverwood welcome to a new reality in a distant/alternative universe. Do yourself a hugh favor and read the series from the beginning, only to enjoy this series completely. While this book can stand alone, the other books in this series are a treat to read as well.

Exquisite Possession is the final book in a sci fi series so unique and exciting I'm a bit sad to read the last pages. The story of Fern and JI offer so many different emotions, so much heat and conflict and depth it just shows once again how wonderful an author Cari Silverwood is. Ever since the intriguing set up of Acquired Possession I've been caught by these books, in such an interesting alternate reality setting. Even the supporting characters are engaging! I've always enjoyed dark romance ...more

Fern made a big impression, with a memorable entrance at the beginning of book one in the series. She’s a human who fought back, stabbing the judge. I’m happy she’s getting her own story. Same with JI. He hasn’t had it easy either. This is a good book with a rich backstory to draw on. It’s also pretty kinky.

This story may not be to everyone’s taste. It draws on many genres—scifi, dystopian, erotica-- mashing them together. It has darkish, mature themes with some shocking parts, but it’s not as r

Through the Looking Glass meets Road Warrior..what a great ride ;)
What can I say about this book but OMG!! I was totally enthralled with this story! I couldn't put it down, had to make myself stop reading so I could sleep..LOL. To finally find out what happened to Fern was great. It would be best to read these stories in sequential order to understand this fantasticly sadistic but entrancing world that Cari dreamed up. I really enjoyed the relationship with Fern and JI. They are practically "mad

So I had to put this on my shelf 'wtf have I just read' - why? Because of what Osta aka JI does to his appendage! Holy Moly!!!!

I am sadden that my visit to Aerthe finishes with Exquisite Possession, I've thoroughly enjoyed my time there - but then I wasn't being sicced by a spiked appendage - just saying lol.

So glad JI got his own book, he's been my favourite right from the start, though he's a little on the dark side since him and Osta become inseperable!

This was like going full circle and read

I freaking love this series! JI transforms from being a mech to having human thoughts, emotions and desires, dark desires. I love that Fern was paired up with him. The way JI had to come to terms with the odd feelings going through his mind, the kinky sex drive that flowed through him, all while he and Fern took on the Judge, it was a phenomenal ending to a thrilling series. I really enjoy this darker writing, and definitely hope to see more!

I love this series and JI has been one of my favorite characters from the beginning. JI now is inhabiting a human body and he plans to make use of it. He is able to finally track down Fern, who at the beginning to the series was discarded and left for dead. This read is filled with twists and turns is so much fun and so off the charts hot, I was hooked from beginning to end. I always hate to a great series end and I will miss learning more about the characters living on this alien world.

Cari wrapped up this series very well with this fourth installment. She did an amazing job of wrapping everything up with the last book. It was an amazing ride and I am glad I got to go along on the journey.

Sadly, this is the last book of the Possession series.
Coming back to Aerthe I was quickly submerged into this fascinating, raw world.
From the first page I stumbled upon old acquaintances.
JI, the mech turned man, struggling to find the meaning of life in his newly acquired body, and Aunt M, his mech sidekick with a mind of his own. Fern, the earth woman stabbed and discarded by Judge Ormrad, and her mechlings.
When those two finally meet it has a resounding impact. An impact that not only define

Fast paced, filthy, funny, frenzied and fabulous. An exciting, humorous and often thought provoking conclusion to this epic series.

I'm probably (OK definitely) going to take a while to get to the crux of this review, so I'm going to lay down now how much I LOVED this book, how gripping the story was, how fabulous the characters were, how hot the sex was and how sad I am that the series has ended. Whilst this can be read as JI and Fern's stand alone story, reading the series will give you a bette

This is the last book The Machinery of Desire series. What a fabulous conclusion to this epic series. I am sad to be leaving the world of Aerthe and it’s inhabitants. What a wild, sexy ride it’s been. This book focuses on JI and Fern. JI , who use to be a mech and is now human and Fern who was thought dead at the hands of the evil judge end up meeting in a pretty dramatic way. They share a connection and together they embark on an intense physical, emotional and sexual journey.

This book is a continuation of the Machinery of Desire series and continues the story only this time JI and Fern are the main characters. The previous stories MUST be read in order for this amazing book to be understood.

JI has had a pivotal part through this series but this time he is no longer a Mechling but is also no inhabiting a human body. I loved watching this turnabout with him as he struggles to discover his new body and urges. Throughout the series, F

Such a sad time. What makes it a sad time? The fact that this is the very last book in The Machinery of Desire series. But, cry not, and do rejoice, because it's a heckuva ride and a fantastic book.

There's a lot that goes into the book, and it is a pre-requisite that you have read the other 3. JI's story winds its way through the whole series, and you aren't going to know how far JI has come unless you know where he started. And while he goes through a lot of changes in this book, think of how m

Exquisite Possession just wow, if you're reading Cari Silverwood you just have to love the way her mind works, how the story swims around and she can put in on paper and just wow us. She did that with her latest release.

Exquisite Possession an ongoing story of Mechs, humans and well a mix of others in a world that Cari created just for them. You could get away with just reading this one, its amazing detail and flow of the story are great. It's a busy read with darkish undertones, but it's an ea

Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night.

When others are writing bad men doing bad things you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.
