Debt Price MasterOther #2 I admit I was ready to dislike this novella as soon as I started it a young man in prison for a nefarious crime killing children has to pay his debt becoming a whore first raped by the prison guards and then sold to the relatives of the children he killed I wasn’t sure what was worst the crime he committed or the punishment he was enduring Because the young man was basically stupid used by others as a mean for the crime a crime he committed not understanding the implicationsBut one of those relatives a young lord whose brother was one of the children the older of the children to be killed the one who was trying to save them all and died in doing so decides to “buy” the prisoner’s debt now the young man is living on the lord’s estate not understanding what the lord wants from him how he is supposed to repay him Living on the estate the young man has the chance to see the true from the other side to recollect who was the young lord’s brother how unselfish and kind he was what great crime he committed in killing him basically killing the whole joy of the estate and its inhabitants For a simple boy like him a commoner worse than a commoner now a slave it seems impossible to be able to replace such lossI arrive to deeply care for both the young man and the young lord; towards the end it seemed almost a fairy tale a tragedy turned in romance but that wasn’t surprising cause for what I remember the best fairy tales are indeed tragic love storieshttpwwwdpB008DWL8XU? It was well written though the subject matter was disturbing I deducted 2 stars only because the author is guilty of one of my all time pet peeves in the mm genre namely overcharging for what is no than a very short story I think 1 per 100 pages is a fair price 399 for only a hundred pages left me feeling ripped off Either flesh out the story and some of the secondary characters or lower the price Oh well At least the author didn't write a short novella and then divide it into a trilogy while charging novel prices for each short part to greedily sueeze out even money which is my next big pet peeve with this genre OMG this book is amazing There is a uiet restraint to it with incredible emotional power underneath that reminds me of Gold Tithings by Kate Islay If you're looking for predictable genre fiction this is not it The suffering the MC endures is harrowing It's not written to be prurient; it puts you in the dark emotional place that the MC is in The ending is broken and beautiful If you like your HEA tied up with a pretty bow again this is not the book for you But I really appreciated the greater emotional resonance of an ending like this In theory I like the idea of an abjectly repentant captive rescued by an angry but distant nobleman In practice it didn't uite work for me Maybe the past rapes were too brutal?There were several clever reversals of expectations eg there really is a plausible explanation of how this firebreathing terrorist could be someone so vulnerable and submissive but somehow I felt tricked rather than wowed Maybe I didn't care enough about the characters I didn't even find out their names until really lateMight work for someone else but if you like this kind of abject you might actually get out of less explicit works by this author eg A Prisoner Has Need The Eternal Dungeon or Waterman a Turn of the Century Toughs omnibus of historical fantasy and retrofuture science fiction Alternatively Bran and Collared by other authorsPS I found out that one of my friends loves this story to pieces I guess it was just that this one suicked me for physical damage I thought this story has a happy ending but judging by some reviews it seems it doesn't I checked the ending and it doesn't look like a HEA so I don't think this story is for me My first book by this author Beautifully written compelling story Page turner to the endUnfortunately this writer doesn't seem to do HEA at all Bittersweet endings are nice in small doses but I don't know if I want to read story after story KNOWING they're all going to end in tears He kept his gaze cast below the belt In the chill cell sweat was beginning to form now on his neck running down his back and between his bound wrists 'Lord' he said softly 'I would be glad to pay to you my debt in any way I can'No one would pay his debt price to gain him release from prison So he sought to pay it himself by offering the only thing he could his body But one man would reuire Convicted of helping to wage a campaign of terror against the lords who oppressed the commoners the prisoner comes to realize the full implications of what he has done All of his attempts to mend what he has broken will fail until he meets a young lord whose own struggles have just begunSet in an imaginary world based on Renaissance Europe Debt Price takes the reader from the gritty punishments of prison life to the delicately balanced world of a farming estate showing the slow healing of a prisoner who knows both what it means to be abused and what it means to be the abuserThis historical fantasy novella can be read on its own or as part of MasterOther a speculative fiction series exploring the dangers and sweet bonds of power35000 words
