Start your review of Rand: Son of Tallav (Sons of Tallav, #3)
Rand, third in the sons of Tallav series is here at last but can be read as a standalone. Yet again, in true Briste fashion, her signature style scintillates her readers as she adroitly draws one into her extraordinary world from the start. Be warned the blurb does not do this book justice. There is so much more to this novel than merely an erotic sci fi. A sadist, Rand's purpose is to inflict pain on his subs and delights doing so. He is returning home but why did he leave in the first place. W ...more

A gothic romance set in space.

Rand is an outcast on his planet of Tallav. Tallav is an intensely matriarchial society, and Rand is a strong willed dom. Between that and a scandal in his past, Rand is no longer welcome on Tallav, until his estranged older sister dies mysteriously, and he is called home. There he meets his niece's new nanny, Jen, who recently had a fallout with her prominent family. As the two grow closer and begin to explore Jen's submissive leanings, they also have to content wi

Being Cruel👋🔪 To the Innocent One👼

A story that began tragically - the death of a loved one. A kind of gothic story at that with the sensual BDSM, particularly sadism, appliction to it. This is the third book in the series and I haven't read in full the first two yet (although thankfully, the author has provided me with them and will soon read them). The character development and chemistry between the the H and h is great - perfect with each other. And this the first that I've read this kind of futuristic sci-fi story flow where ...more

Provided with a free ARC for an honest review. A tender hearted sexual sadist. Impossible? This book really took me by surprise. I expected a lot of dirty dark sex. Instead I got a love story with some BDSM. Rand is raised in a matriarchal society where men are second class citizens completely subservient to the women in the family. He rebels and is living on another planet where he owns a BDSM club. When he returns home after many years due to the death of his sister, he meets Jen, his niece's ...more

When i chose to read this book the first thing i thought to myself was "what the hell am i doing!! I dont do sci-fi"
Well let me tell you best mistake was choosing to read this book!
I absolutely loved the Sons of Tallav series.
Rand returns home to Tallav for his sisters funeral, after being banished from his home at the age of 14. He has made a name for himself as the Whip Master and sadist and is the owner of the most exclusive BDSM club on Beta Tau.
When he sees Jen his niece'

Another r good book I the series

This book has a lot going for it. Randolph Meyron is a great character that you don't know whether to love or at. Jen O'Malley is not as demure as you think. In a world where women rule, the men are taken care of by them. That is except for Rand. He is his own person,sweating to be er let a woman control him.

Even if you don't read BDSM, the story of this bok is worth reading. I read the first two for a review magazine but got the last two simply because I wanted

I received a copy from Hidden Gems; this is my honest review.
-Randolf and Jen make a special couple; at last they both feel their relationship is a real sado-masochism balance.
-Unlike the previous books, this one has a lot of religious aspects to it. It didn't really bother me because it fit in the story and explained several things.
-The end leaves a lot to the imagination since we don't really know how they will live between the two worlds.
-The culprit to the mystery is not a surprise but the m

The story was well written, the plot flowed smoothly from page to page and the characters were so well developed that I was hooked from page one! As I turned each page I was so engrossed in the story that I ended up reading this in one sitting!

Wow I absolutely loved this one. I’ve been anxiously awaiting Rand’s story for a while now and this was so far off from what I was expecting. Cailin did a great job creating Rand’s backstory. I’m just so blown away.

This started off with such a tragedy, and it broke my heart but it also will have any reader immediately hooked. From reading the previous books, you get to know Rand as a very playful sadist, but here we get to find out all about how he became who he is. We get to witness the dynami
