Colt in the Cave - Ben M. Baglio

I found a copy of this book in the Lending Library. I haven't read any of the Animal Ark Hauntings books before this, but I remember having a few Animal Ark books growing up

Overall, the story was interesting. Without giving too much away, the ending did not come as much of a surprise given that it is a Hauntings book. But I still enjoyed the story and liked how all of the pieces fell into place.

Not going to lie, the best part was everyone trying figure out the Internet. It really brought me back to the days of that awful start up tone and not getting calls while on Yahoo Messenger. Good times.

A cool, quick read with a nice ending.

Book 36/100: The Colt From Moon Mountain by Dorothy Lathrop
The colt from Moon mountain, - Dorothy Pulis Lathrop

This was a sweet little book that I never expected to read. I became curious about it when Peter S. Beagle mentioned it as a childhood favorite that may have partially inspired The Last Unicorn. When I saw that only 3 libraries in the U.S. owned a copy, I thought my Interlibrary Loan Request was a lost cause. Imagine my excitement when I got an email announcing its arrival a week later!

I was expecting a quick-read picture book; it's a little more involved than that, more of a "chapter-book" (except that it's not divided into chapters), with illustrations every 5-10 pages or so. I wanted more illustrations. :p

It's about a little girl who becomes fascinated with a beautiful white colt, of which no one knows the origin. Turns out (spoiler ^_^) that little colt is a baby unicorn. It sure takes the folks in this book a LONG time to figure that out! Maybe if I were 8 I wouldn't have been so impatient with them.

I was a little annoyed that we never got to find out where the little unicorn came from, or if there was a big unicorn somewhere up on Moon Mountain. But I was glad little Cynthy got the special connection with animals that she craved, and it was an interesting peek into the past to read about farm life through a child's eyes in the 1940s. I wish farm life in the 1980s (which was when I grew up) would have included unicorns!

The Colt
The Colt - Kalita Kasar

3.75 - 4 stars.

 

Imagine you never really had a home and finally found it and a friend you’re beginning to love. What would you do if you see that this friend is hurting? That he seems to need something you can’t give him? Malcolm knows exactly what to do. Stay by his side and help him, no matter what.

 

The Colt might not be perfect, like the writing was a little bit rough in the beginning. Still, I really liked the book, because the story was so captivating (I liked the first half a little bit more). I can’t really say what part of the story I liked so much. Maybe it was Malcolm, learning what BDSM really is (damn, that one scene in the club!) or how Marcus finally found the strength to fight back. Or the feeling that something bad would happen…. There’s just one thing I know – if you like books with a little bit BDSM (in this case I really wished we could have seen more!) and some sweet parts in-between, this book might be the right one for you.

The Colt - Kalita Kasar 3 1/2 - 4 Hearts

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

Marcus is a soap actor and part time rancher, he knows better than to get involved but one night he comes to the rescue of Malcom in a bar. Malcom has been abused in the foster homes he grew up in and when Marcus offers him a helping hand he is suspicious of his motives. Marcus has problems of his own when his convenient relationship begins to take a brutal turn, and he isn’t strong enough to walk away without help. Marcus and Malcolm support each other as they both try to weather the scandal and violent threats. Malcolm must come to terms with Marcus’ needs and understand the truth of BDSM.

This story of gay love in the eighties during a time when BDSM was misunderstood and fear of HIV/AIDS was rampant. Marcus is a sub who has fallen into an abusive ‘relationship’, he knows his Dom is going too far but he doesn’t feel like he can stop him. Malcom knows abuse when he sees it and the man who has offered him a job and a place to stay is being abused, he might not understand BDSM or why a person would want to be hit but he offers his support to Marcus. When Marcus’ Dom reacts badly to Marcus walking away from him it causes Marcus huge problems but Malcolm is by his side every step of the way, now Malcolm has to do something he never thought he would, he has to learn how to be a Dom.

I did enjoy this story and I thought that the setting was brilliant, but what I loved the most was the brief look at BDSM and AIDS in 1986. Malcolm has a lot to come to terms with when it comes to BDSM because he has been beaten enough in his life, so for him to try to understand what BDSM was really about makes you love him, also the fact that he stood by Marcus as his life went down the toilet was brilliant. Marcus was such a sweetheart who just wants someone to love him and give him what he needs, in Malcolm he finds someone who wants to try. There isn’t much sex because of the fears surrounding AIDS at that time, Marcus refuses to risk Malcolm until they are sure they are both clean, because back then they didn’t know how it was spread or how to protect against it. This is more of an emotionally supportive story, with love developing between Malcolm and Marcus, there are no real BDSM scenes, maybe just one or two D/s scenes.

I have to recommend this to those who love early eighties gay difficulties, finding support and love, fighting for the right thing against the odds and developing a love that will stand against time.
