I absolutely LOVED this sci-fi novel!

Evangeline Anderson is THE master of outrageously sexy sci-fi romps.

Think: Star Wars
Think: Jedi Knights

NO, forget it. This is even better, because it's a gay love story!!


The Order of the Light is a community of trained mediators who travel all across the galaxy to reconcile fighting parties. They have access to The Light (*cough* the force? *cough*) which they can summon into their hands to create Swords of Light- I'm not gonna say *lightsabers*, but y
I really didn't know what to expect when I started this book. Honestly, I didn't think I would like it. I had seen it many times, and bypassed it because I thought it was going have hardcore BDSM, abuse and they would have multiple partners...I was wrong...VERY WRONG.

First let me say that this is truly a story of two people who are not only friends, but have a very deep affection and admiration for one another. Never once did I doubt their feelings for one another, even when it was put to the te

WREN: “Oh, I love you so much Master, take me. Take me now!

HAVEN: “I mustn’t. I mustn’t act upon these strong urges I have for your youthful golden body and your spiky brown-blond hair. To do so will cause the Order of the Light to separate us FOR-EV-ER!”

WREN: “But Master, I have loved you since I was a 12 year old boy. (Squick!) Please use me! Use my body to satiate the urges that run rampant through your ever so masculine build. I neeeed you!”

HAVEN: “No! I cannot! It is forbidden! No! Yes! No!

I loved this book. There was so much friendship, love and respect between the heroes. There was no mistaking their love for one another. I hated to see it come to an end.

Slave Boy offers up typical Evangeline Anderson, the writng is just so her and the plot is basically one we have experienced before. I enjoyed the sci-fi world created, and she does offer up some really vile and strange creatures in this one, but with that said this book lacked originality when it came to characters. Its like I have seen them before, just with different names and I liked them a lot more.

I recently reread this book, and I admit, I worried that it might have been best to leave it safe in the fog of memory, as it was one of my first m/m books I read. Happily, I can tell you the answer is no, it was a wise move to reread. This book is light, fun, and naughty. Kinky and voyeuristic and a wonderful afternoon's escape.

If I have any "complaints," it's that this same book that initially seemed so racy now seems like it doesn't go far enough. But that only adds to the charm. If you're l

Completely suspend your disbelief and this is an entertaining story. Evangeline Anderson has a way of making sex a matter of life or death. In Slave Boy, a blow job brought Wren back from the brink of death. I was just thinking, if a blow job has healing properties my DH may be immortal. Just a thought.

This book is a good read for anyone looking for a silly, sexy and surprisingly sweet story that does not take itself seriously. I highly recommend giving it a chance. Again, it is absurd but also hot, fun and has a heart.

D'lon Haven is a Light Bringer. As much as I could gather, a sort of spiritual warrior. Using the Light to fight with if needed but mostly to heal with and comfort himself.

Haven saves Wren from a life of sexual slavery on the planet Rigel Six when he sees Wren heal a bird using the Light from within himself. A rare gift.

Wren knows that from the moment he saw his Master that his heart belonged to him. He longs to give him his mind, soul and body as well. But the Council they serve despise any s

I see this book has its fans. Ok, everyone likes something else. But I really dont understand why.
So predictible, shallow, characters act stupid. How can Haven be negotiator, when he allow them to manipulate him so easily?

And for heaven's sake, how many times I had read "I want you" "Yes, me too, but we can't" again and again?

I was sick and mad from this book, even though I finished it. I wanted yell at them and I hated them all, and the fact that I always knew what would happen next was a smal
Okay, confession time. I'm a mediator by trade and I like to read slave fiction by night (or any other time) to unwind. I don't mind if it's angsty or cheesy, if it has slaves in it, I'll probably read it. So when I discovered slave fiction with a mediator in outer space I was thinking all my birthdays had come at once.

They hadn't. I think I need brain bleach, since essentially, this reads like really awful porn. The plot is contrived and makes no sense and the sex is horrible just really creepy

Master D'Lon Haven is a servant of the light, the order of the most important and respect mediators of the universe. The Servant of the light, or the Light Bringer, is picked from the common population because of their "special" abilities. They can use "the light" a powerful force that no race can't defeat.

Well, this was just its very own brand of silliness. LOL.

2.75 stars. This book is definitely intense. This is hardcore BDSM, with voyeurism, public exhibitions, and forced seduction, that takes pain and pleasure beyond the confines of typical romances.

At its heart, this is about love. Sacrificing love, selfless love, something pure and intangible beyond bodies coming together.

Haven’s denials of surrendering to his love of Wren began to grate me at some point, as they sounded like excuses for the sake of excuses, just to make the book longer and more t
I've read my share of ~homoerotic fiction~ and I knew not to expect the best book ever, but I expected ... something. A plot that's better than a crappy porn plot and doesn't make you bang your head against the nearest wall after every page. Characters you don't want to kill after 5 seconds. Sex scenes that are, you know,

This may be the worst book I've ever read. Seriously.

There's no nice way to say this. Haven is so, unbelievably stupid there's no way he could have passed any kind of intake aptitude test to be an intergalactic ambassador of any kind, shape or form.

Maybe a half-wit can join warm-fuzzy-feeling holy orders-of-light, but do people really think any idiot can become a diplomat?

:/ I feel a bit disappointed because I loved the characters and the author's writing style, but the book bordered on PWP and both the situation that made the characters begin an amorous relationship and the one that allowed them to be together and have their HEA seemed just slapped on the book with not as much tought as the rest of the story and bordered on silly

I loved this book so much I can't even say. Mainly because it's so totally and obviously Star Wars fanfic with different names I could have wept with joy. Evangeline Anderson is my heroine, for realz. It's cheesy, it's totally Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan, my life is complete. ELEVEN STARS.

In a futuristic world, Haven is a negotiator, a man with healing powers and diplomat ability who is sending on troubled foreign planets to facilitate alliance pacts. During one of these travels he finds a young boy, barely 12 years old, who is taken as a sex slave by a slave trader and who will be soon sold to a customer. Seeing in the boy the same healing powers he has, Haven buys the boy and brings him back to his home planet. The boy, named Wren, is raised to be a diplomat himself, and when h ...more

Its not just the smooth cover, unique size, beautiful artwork and easy to read font that has encouraged me to collect these types of long paperbacks...It's the content. Once a month, sometimes two, I purchase print material from not just my publisher, Loose-Id but from Samhain and Ellora's Cave. Erotica...that's what my collection is about, plain and simple and 'Slave Boy' is just my latest swift, greedy consumable.

I rarely read a book where I hate the setting, but this is one of them. I know the author needed conflict and trauma, but I found the cultural setting for the majority of this book distracting, degrading and ultimately uninteresting. I felt it almost trivialised the love of the two MCs. So whilst I hated the villain (along with the apathy of the Tiberions) as pretty much instructed by the author, the setting was too artif

Well… in short: Star Wars fanfic with disturbing tendencies.

The longer version: After reading the two books and two shorts in her Assignment series, I came to the following conclusion: Evangeline Anderson writes smut. So if you’re looking for in dept, character driven stories with a good plot and lots of romance: she’s not for you.
However, if like books in where the stories serve the sex, the sex is kinda raunchy and the dirty talk is abundant: she’s your gal.

This time she went even further:

Recently read her book The Assignment and really enjoyed it, so when a review said Slave Boy follows a very similar plot progression (relationship-wise, not story-wise), I was all for reading it. But my expectations were set too high. Overall, it was an okay book. It was surprising to have the sci-fi/fantasy/space aspect. So if you're looking for an erotic book with a "star wars feel" (= the genre combo) combined with an extremely watered down version of the "submission" relationships, then you ...more

I probably shouldn't have liked this as much as I did - there were some pretty ridiculous elements that could have annoyed me - maybe even should have, if I had gone into it intending to take the story seriously. Instead, I went into it just hoping for some mostly mindless, maybe a little kinky fun with a Sci-Fi bent and a little heart, and that, I can happily say, is something I found.

I've certainly read futuristic Sci-Fi M/M done with a more serious and complex plot, with an attempt

I'm no good at reviews but I'm trying to say something about each book I read this year. I honestly wasn't sure I would enjoy this book from the blurb on it. It turned out to be an entertaining read. The concept was a little different and the end seemed abrupt. Would like to see more in this world, maybe get a glimpse of the couple as they continue their "adventures."
