    Romance? Absolutely not Erotica? Definitely BDSM? Also absolutely not; no this is dubcon at best abuse and a slave in an absolutely unvarnished world good for the author for not painting real slavery with a pretty brush grabbing on to the slightest hint of happiness he can cling to violent and callous as it often was and calling it love That being said it was also hot and remarkably well written The prose is artful th

    Despite the cover and title this is a decidedly un dark read I suppose as far as Gaymance goes it's also a bit of a strange read It's romance yet I'm not sure you can soundly classify as that When it comes to slavery in MM Romance there's usual

In Amaranth the Wayfarers' Guild attracts all kinds of custom When Lucan the mage walks into the stable yard with a lame horse in the rain slave boy Tam runs to serve him and soon Tam wants to do nothing else EverLucan is demanding ruthless devastating. This is not a romanceBut it s not a dark nasty story either Dark Heart is something else altogetherIn the world of Amaranth a caste system is firmly intact Slaves are regarded as soulless and are or less on the same footing as domestic animals This means that from our perspective the way the 23 year old Tam who was once a petty thief until he was caught and collared is treated seems harsh Ever since he is a slave at a guild house he is fed only once a day whipped every now and then for no particular reason and must service the guests sexually and otherwise It also means that when one stormy night a powerful mage seeks shelter at the guild house and chooses Tam to see to his needs the boy is very much treated like a pet dogWhen the mistress of the guild house begs his new temporary master for help in a series of mysterious attacks on the guild Tam is sucked into a turmoil of events After an explosion in the city he secretly watches how the strong mysterious mage collects stiff dead bodies and calls back their souls However before Tam s curious mind has time to grasp the the definition of a necromancer he gets than he bargained for as his master decides to drag him into hell as toll money for the demons After all if something dreadful is to happen to a slave it will just be considered collateral damage Which is in Hell which is where I must go to interrogate itAh I see And the boyI need something to pay my way To buy me answers An offering I ll hope to bring him back to you Be aware though I can t guarantee itWhat s interesting is that this isn t a story in which one person consciously chooses to take on a submissive role to play Or the opposite in which a main character is forced into slavery and both he and his master realize things could be different Since slavery is such a normal aspect of Amaranth s culture the fact that Tam s a slave is never uestioned neither by him or his new master The mage therefore is entirely dismissive of Tam s feelings and handles him as nonchalantly as a farmer would treat one of his many sheep not cruel but never particularly caring either If you can t handle this matter of factly ineuality very well Dark Heart can be a somewhat uncomfortable experience Although Tam did not strike me as an overly intelligent character and appears in a way happy in his submissive role and eager to please his attractive master What did I know I was only a slave All I wanted was his cock in my mouth he shares enough tidbits to give the impression that deep down he is in fact not so excited about the cards he is dealt in life I would have liked to matter to either of them really just a little than the furniture but there s no point dreaming Free men and women value slaves only for their usefulness and not a penny piece beyondDespite several dramatic events in the story that could have forced a break through in the way both characters perceived their society imposed roles I know I had anticipated at least a subtle change in the way the mage regarded his slave the author chose to not let his characters explore their possibilities Despite my vague frustration about this lack of development I personally love a dash of friction conflict and soul searching in my books I must admit that besides the great writing the preservation of this standstill is also one of the book s strengths The author opted for the road less traveled which resulted in an ever present bittersweet undercurrent to Dark Heart Although it s probably clear by now that this is not really one of those books for those who like their HEA there is just enough material to ignite your imaginationUltimately Dark Heart is so much than a fantasy story It just begs to be chewed on for a while To be explored from all angles If you get the
