Warning: repeated and frequent dub-con and non-con.

I really liked the world building in this story and the arc of Aedan’s character.
It wasn’t always easy to read, since he’s abused repeatedly and on page for the majority of the story, but Aedan is first and foremost a survivor and he always found a way to emotionally distance himself and pull through without being broken.
He’s used to adapt his behavior to what he thinks will better ensure his survival with minimum damage, but years of experience in surviving abuse and pleasing a master don’t serve him so well when he suddenly finds himself in a different situation, with people around him who don’t act, don’t even think, like he’s being used to his all life.

The connection between Aedan and Demitrios was powerful from the first moment and I loved how protective Demitrios was in the arena, but the best part was seeing how their completely different upbringing and mentality influenced their relationship, how they reacted to each other’s way of thinking. Though, as a secondary character pointed out, it wouldn’t kill them to have an honest conversation for once.

From a certain point the plot in itself was pretty predictable, but it didn’t matter, because the execution and the growth of Aedan’s character made for an entertaining reading anyway. ( )
