The Forgotten Slaves of Tromelin - Sylvain Savoia

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley

 

                There are many stories from history that we do not know.  It isn’t that in every case they are totally forgotten, though that is true in some cases, for sometimes people do know the story, but the story is not widely known.  This graphic novel relates one of those known but unknown stories.

 

                The novel tales two stories.  The first is that of the slave who not only find themselves kidnapped but then stranded on a small island.  The second is group of scholars many years later as they struggle to piece together what happened.  There is the stark contrast between the deprivations that the shipwrecked people suffered to that of the relative ease in which the researchers live.

 

                The dual stories work, as the graphic novel is true.  It is a non-fiction graphic novel.  Once you realize this is account and that is why some of the characters aren’t as fully developed as they would be in more fictional and less scholarly accounts.

                The amount of information that the book conveys is quite nice and the art work is lovely.

Captured (Novus Prime #1) by Kelex
Captured (Novus Prime Book 1) - Kelex

Quick fun no-brainer read. Not very detailed, which is a bummer. Mpreg got me by surprise and hate to love progressed too quickly for my liking, but I did enjoy the book and would love to read the second one.

A Cobra's Charm by Meghan Maslow
A Cobra's Charm - Meghan Maslow

 

 

Sex scene took a huge chunk of this story. Tho I loved the whole thing well enough for four stars, I think it needs more pages. More on MCs, more on prominent secondary characters, more on universe in general before any sex happens. Not enough sex for erotica, not enough plot for a good romance.

By Fairy Means or Foul (Starfig Investigations #1) by Meghan Maslow
By Fairy Means or Foul: A Starfig Investigations Novel - Meghan Maslow

Similar books: Lord MouseThick as Thieves

 

This book is a light humorous adventure/quest. 

Brandsome the Unicorn lost his horn. He hires a PI named Twig, half-dragon/half-elf, who takes the job and promises to find the horn in question and bring it back. 

Being put down as a collateral for down payment, Quinn, the unicorn's human sex slave, takes on the role of a side-kick to Twig.

After three years of slavery and abuse, Quinn is happy for a short break, even more so because he adores his handsome new (if temporary) master. Of course, there are flashbacks and discussions of slavery under unicorn's hoof, but Quinn is living in the moment and enjoying his short freedom, not wanting to dwell on his misery. Twig treats him like an equal, at the same time being a bit on over-protective side due to his dragon-half mating surges. Twig Starfig is tough and rough, but knows firsthand how the rest of the world treats those who don't fit in it perfectly. 

The odd couple - a plain non-magical human pet and a half-breed - travels around the realm, playing dangerous card games with elves, boarding ghost ships, fighting zombies, drinking tea with cyclopes and making acquaintances with demons in penis-shaped castles (yep, that's a thing!). 

There is a bit of angst in the end, seeing how Quinn can't go back to Brandsome-the-Unicorn, not if Twig has any say in it, but mostly this book is about adventure and how it brings two odd creatures together. Love conquers all, they say =) Well, that and a very influential father-elf ;)

The Chimera (Bound Gods #1) by Adrienne Wilder
The Chimera - Adrienne Wilder

Frigging brilliant! My only complaint is that Kaleb is not suffering the change of scenery enough. He must have had friends, he must have had hopes and ambitions and plans, like being in college, obtaining freedom from his father. Maybe the reality is yet to settle in? :D

Looking forward to the next installment.

PS 
There are problems with editing, but I am choosing to ignore them since they were not too bad.
Mixed up "he, she" in reference to Kaleb's trans male brother drove me bonkers. There should be "He" in this book with this particular set of characters, no way around it.
