Blurb

Lornyc is good at keeping secrets, because secrets can get you killed.

Lornyc’s forbidden relationship with Methian, heir to Xenetra, has caused him enough grief. Ripped from his life as a student to fulfil a magical contract as punishment for his family’s past, he now has to play valet to Methian for ten years. It’ll be hell on their already strained relationship.

And with his city of Katraman under attack, Lornyc needs to connect to the powers he’s been hiding. If he can’t master his powers and find the leader of the plot, he could lose everything he knows and loves: his family, his future as High Lord, and Methian.

Trigger warning: mind control, attempted assault

Previously published, this second edition has been edited and reworked for release.

About The Author

REBECCA COHEN spends her days dreaming of a living in a Tudor manor house, or a Georgian mansion. Alas, the closest she comes to this is through her characters in her historical romance novels.

She also dreams of intergalactic adventures and fantasy realms, but because she’s not yet got her space or dimensional travel plans finalised, she lives happily in leafy Hertfordshire, England, with her husband and young son. She can often be found with a pen in one hand and sloe gin with lemon tonic in the other.

With contemporaries, historicals, sci fi and fantasy in her back catalogue, there should be something for every taste in Rebecca’s work.

Rebecca kicks off an epic journey in this Sci-Fi fantasy cross

58459518._SY475_Servitude by Rebecca Cohen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book one in an epic journey which covers so many different sub-genres and tropes it really needs a new category 🙂

It’s very much a Sci-Fi/Fantasy hybrid, but it has a very strong element of romance to it too, which forms the bedrock of all that happens.

There are twists and turns that wouldn’t be out of place in a mystery or suspense series, and it’s got a lovely thread of humour throughout too.

I was lucky enough to beta read this for Rebecca, I’ve done the whole series, and I’ll just say you’re in for a wild ride.

Lornyc and Methian are wonderfully drawn characters, their love has already been tested when this book begins but we see how committed they are.

While the main thrust of the narrative in this book is cleared up at the end, there are series’ long story arcs which continue, so bear that in mind.

The world building is superb, the magic system an intriguing one, as are the political manipulations, which becomes a hallmark as the series goes on.

Fast-paced, sweet and steamy, this opener sets you off on a wild ride and it will leave you wanting more.

#ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.

This book was previously published but has been re-edited, and the content revised.

Cover

Blurb

Micah Vehyl considers himself an “opportunist.” Living in the underground city of Tartarus, he’s not misguided by the ideals of the esteemed and noble government, nor by the promise of re-homing and freedom on the surface. In a world where homosexuality is considered punishable by death, and only the rich and healthy are able to see the light of day, Micah has made a living for himself – among his older brother’s band of criminals and assassins.

Armed with a complex power he barely understands, Micah lives only for himself, removed from the fight of the so-called Resistance movement and the impending war against President Axel Tovar and the esteemed and noble government.

But a chance and erotic encounter with a deeply enigmatic Eden Voss awakens a passion within Micah…one that he thought to have vanished for good. A dangerous passion: one that could just get him killed.

Meanwhile, Eden Voss has secrets of his own: An officer in the Elysian Police Force, Eden risks more than just his career to maintain contact with Micah. But the connection between them cannot be denied and Eden is willing to throw it all away for the chance to spend more time in Micah’s presence.

Caught between passionate desire and the forces that strive to keep them apart, Eden and Micah must navigate treachery, politics, but worst of all – themselves, to find each other. And when injustice threatens all they hold dear, they must make decide if what they’ve started is worth fighting for. And if they’re willing to risk it all to be together in a world where their love is forbidden.

Trigger Warning: This book contains content that may be upsetting to some readers. Dark themes in this series include graphic depictions of violence, torture, human trafficking, police brutality, sexual assault and depictions of rape/non-consensual sexual situations.

Note, this is a trilogy and the HEA will come at the end of the series. This doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, but the story continues in book two and three.

Teaser 1

Teaser

“Well, how lucky am I to be allowed some of your attention for the night?” Micah leaned back, assessing Eden’s hard body, all wrapped in leather. He looked undeniably handsome.

Eden glanced up at him, almost shyly, before his eyes widened. Slowly, he reached out, allowing his hand to trace the scab that had formed on Micah’s lip, the bruises that lined his jaw. “What happened?” Micah felt himself flush, pulling quickly from Eden’s grasp.

“It’s nothing. One of the hazards of home.”

Eden’s sharp blue eyes narrowed. “It doesn’t look like nothing.”

“I said it’s nothing,” Micah said flatly. “Drop it, will you?”

Eden’s hands balled into fists. “If someone hurt you —”

“I can take care of myself,” Micah snapped. “I told you that the last time we met.”

“You did,” Eden conceded.

“Does it ruin your image of me?” Micah asked, quirking a brow. “Am I less appealing to you now that the goods have been damaged?”

Eden’s cheeks flared pink. “Nothing could do that. You’re all I’ve been thinking about since the last time.”
