IMOGEN TAGLINE

Unfortunately, “Imogen “didn’t really deliver for me. The premise here was actually fantastic and is what initially piqued my interest here.
The idea that this was set in a future dystopian world that is currently embroiled in some sort of civil war: one that Imogen herself is thrust into when she is kidnapped on her wedding night: well anyone that knows me would see that this ticks all my boxes in terms of plotline: add in the fact that this is also dark fiction and I was very intrigued indeed

I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

He was her captor. She was his slave. He promised to keep her safe. But could he keep her safe from falling in love with the very man she should despise?

This is the story of Imogen and Erik. She is a slave and he is her master. This is a dark romance and to make it even better it is in a dystopian world!! I love a good dark romance and a good dystopian book. SO Imogen was just utter perfection for me

To the victor go the spoils?

Contrasts and conflicts in our desires, our emotions, our backgrounds. To the victor go the soils. Vae Victis (Woe to the conquered).

R.B O’Brien delivers readers into her dark world with ease, inside the confines of IMOGEN. While the location and time span is vague, it allows for one’s imagination to be transported wherever they choose. War/Conflict can happen anywhere/anytime. Detailed, exacting, emotive.

War has raged… the conquerors have set their terms. It’s not

While watching as a beautiful virgin slave, taken as spoils of war, and claimed by a hardened warrior leader was incredibly frightening, it was also heart-poundingly erotic. Imogen is the slave, Erik her master. Although he awakens her sensuality, neither master nor slave finds the freedom to fulfill their deep desires. They are forced by circumstances to inflict and endure humiliation and abuse. At times, I would feel intense fear and anxiety, while witnessing Imogen’s stubborn pride over-rule ...more

I'll admit that I struggled a bit with this one in the beginning. Dystopian tales are a little out of my wheelhouse, and the book really doesn't give a definitive time or location. Some of the descriptions of the people and their biases did remind me of some of the more well-known historical conflicts, and some of the phrasings used felt more historical than futuristic. I also wouldn't necessarily consider this story a romance. It's certainly an erotic thriller, and Eric does show tenderness tow ...more

I love R.B's writing style and how she develops the characters as the story flows, the emotions and the romance. This story is well written and flows perfectly. I found myself quickly drawn into the story and the emotional struggle of the two main characters, Erik and Imogen.

Imogen is captured as a slave during was and is claimed by Erik. Erik, is unlike his fellow soldiers, he has some compassion, not as cruel as his peers and appears to be protective over Imogen. Imogen, finds herself in a sit

Very very interesting series. In a world where war is the norm, Imogene is captured as a spoil of war and kept enslaved and naked. Erik chooses her due to her great beauty and tries to protect her from the other men who want to torture and rape her. Imogene is proud and foolish not really comprehending the extreme danger facing her. There are brutal sex scenes but also more tender scenes. The underlying theme of unrelenting warfare where women are the most vulnerable and propaganda is rampant ma ...more

I am volunteering to leave a review of this ARC book. This was a dark romance. Not as intense as other dark romances I've read. What touched my heart, through the darkenss was Erik's protectiveness of Imogen. War is not easy, as history has shown. This book certainly shows that harder, darker side. But even through the darkness, goodness and light can shine. I rooted for Erik and Imogen, as both their lives were in danger! I wanted an HEA for them. This is a must read series to find out!

I loved

I'm on the fence with this one, while I really liked the "dark" idea of this story with the whole slave and master thing, I was left with more questions than answers. What kind of world did these characters live in, what was the war really about and how did it really come about that these women could be taken as slaves? Overall it was a quick read, with some dark themes and has potential.

R.B. O'Brien has always been drawn to the more taboo side of storytelling, even as a young adult, from hiding books from strict Catholic parents as a teen to getting lost in the erotic sections of bookstores for hours. She is best known for her erotic romance series, Thorne, Natalie's Edge, and Imogen and explores the darker, erotic nature of relationships, those riddled with the reality of insecu ...more
