The fantasy in this book is basically a very extreme form of pet play. More than just a slave, Etrin is basically turned into a human animal, intensified by the fact that she doesn't know her owner's language and is not allowed to speak (which made of a dearth of sexy dialogue, which was a bit disappointing!). Garid treats her very very brutally, which is ultimately what she needs and what she was looking for when she purposefully got herself enslaved--the descriptions of her punishments and how she was treated are certainly interesting, but some of them went beyond what I find erotic.
This book certainly kept my attention, even though there were parts that I found disturbing and uncomfortable, it was quite compelling at the same time. The writing is beautiful and some people will love it, but you should be prepared for a lot of brutality and cruelty.
A good book touches you on an emotional level, good writing does not get in the way of the story, Anneke Jacob achieved both objectives in Owned and Owner.
I was totally sucked into Etrin's harsh training and marveled how Jacob showed the justifiable psychology behind the cruel appearance of slave training in an accurate light.
Jacob writes an intensely realistic story of consensual slavery and power exchange where the fantasy setting is the only thing that reminds the reader it's fiction. Owned and Owner is an exceedingly erotic read - If you get off on sexual - sadomasochistic domination you will not be disappointed with the menagerie of scenes between the Henth community of owners and their slaves. If you enjoy intelligent BDSM Owned and Owner is mind caviar.
This book is bound (no pun intended) to be a classic.
Dove - ST BDSM Ezine
I first read this novel several years ago when it was first released, and read it again recently in order to prepare this review. It was as stunning the second time around as it was the first. This is the trailblazing benchmark of TPE consensual non-consent fiction against which all other such stories must be measured. In this reader's humble opinion it is still the very best of its kind. Consensual Non-consent can be thought of as analogous to deciding to jump from an airplane without a parachute. You get one decision - to "jump" or not to "jump" - and once you decide to take the leap, the rest is completely out of your hands. Such is the situation Etrin finds herself in upon her arrival on Henth.
Ms. Jacob's sharp mind has come up with an elegantly simple, and cleverly written, plot device to allow the implausible fantasy of total (and I do mean TOTAL in every sense of the word) submission to be rendered not only plausible, but chillingly believable. She uses point of view shifts in a subtle way to not only break up the intensity of the narrative as told from Etrin's POV, but to help the reader feel the same sense of "otherness" that Etrin feels toward her captor(s). It is an unflinching portrayal of TPE (total power exchange), with 'exchange' as more of a plebiscite than anything else (i.e.Read more ›
I found this story a study in dehumanization and cruel conditioning, replete with months of strict bondage, months of orgasm denial; withholding of affection or any sort of human connection, denying speech or language usage and turning this woman who wanted to be a submissive slave into less than a dog.
I'm into BDSM, but not dehumanization and particularly NOT pony play. I'd like my money back because had I known this book was about the dehumanization process and strict orgasm denial I would NEVER have purchased it.
Do you rate a book based on how it makes you feel? How well it's written? How well it conveys the idea and mood the author wishes to explore? I'm not sure but I'll never read this author again.
