You loved who you thought he was, not the monster he turned out to be? I should have seen!
Fangirl Friday: The Eternal Dungeon, by Dusk Peterson – Vampires, Crime and Angels…Eclectic Me
Nevermind that that was the whole issue I had before with him, that he wouldn't show me anything abotu himself and that maybe in this case, I'm still missing a buttload of information. I should have known he was a monster! He lied to me! He tricked me! Never mind he tried to push me away and I insisted I'd make him confess his love for me. Clearly he's a horrible rogue! I shouldn't have left! I should have protected those he was hurting! I took and oath to protect the prisoners, and that's what I should have done! And then there's the stupidly cliche "D: they're just like everyone, just like humans, so evil.
Projecting much? What, pray tell, is the point of this farce? To create some sort of drama? For aught that I could ever read, Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth.
I can kind of see what the author's getting at, but I still think it's stupid. It does kind of come together, but that still doesn't excuse the stupid. It's sort of overly convenient. It does come together, sort of, and it got interesting again for a moment, but then view spoiler [this "It's all right, love. If you have to torture me or rape me or whatever I give you permission. From Elsdon?
That doesn't make sense. He's on one hand ingenuous, then conniving when it suits? Okay, the "bindings upon a sadist" revelation was great, but then pushing the romance was like ending Captain America The First Avenger on the "it's just I had a date note. Still, I don't quite know if I want to read on or not.

On one hand, the character exploration is somewhat interesting Layle, not Elsdon, yeesh , and the peripheral world-building and more plotty sort of stuff is also intriguing, but when this Oct 12, Jaz rated it it was amazing. A free copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Rating this book wasn't difficult. Explaining why this book deserves five stars is, however, close to impossible. There's no point for me to give a walkthrough of the plot, because the plot is what the book's summary says; two men meet under unexpected circumstances and love appears.
But the plot is only half of this story. Or, more like one quarter of it. The rest is pain and fear and insecurities. And it's br A free copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. And it's brilliant, just beautiful. I read The Breaking before diving head first into this story, and though I think this book works as a stand-alone, I do believe reading The Breaking first benefits greatly. There is a connection between Elsdon and Layle that is hard to read and understand, unless you know where it all started.
The whole world surrounding them, the Eternal Dungeon, and all of its characters some nice, some quite the opposite of nice , takes such a huge part of this story and the MCs lives, that figuring out the background will definitely be worth it. Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. This is not rare in my case, but usually it's because the book I'm reading is really funny, or I just know there's going to be a plot twist.
Now, the only reason that kept my glued to the text was the text. It flows. I don't know how else to put it. It's like listening to music that's so translucent and harmonic you barely notice it's there; instinctively you just bathe in it. The style of writing, the whole world created by the author Elsdon, his timidness and hesitance which grew into something so magnificent, and Layle, who just took my breath away and made me want to scream at the same time. Everything about this story stole me and refuses to let go. My inability to explain why this story is so good annoys me immensely.
You just have to read it to understand. I would have been happy with out the rack scene. While the world building and detail of characters and setting was great, the aspect of the book made be feel uncomfortable. If you like Dark and brooding and BDSM, I would highly recommended it but if you like your reading a bit on the lighter side or way lighter I would steer clear of this.
