Review

The Slave Wife by Frances Gaines Bennett. Reviewed by Tobias Tanner. Two girls are driven down different paths by a madness that neither understands. One is submissive, and allows herself to become the living pallet for an artist's ideal. The other transforms herself, forging a powerful and vengeful warrior spirit. Between them stands a man who is either part ghost and part demon, or who is completely insane. The pathology is clear, but the reality is not, leaving the reader to follow some torturous pathways for answers. Frances Gaines Bennett has traveled this road before, alliteratively speaking. Her last novel (The Milk Bitch Trilogy) also involved the sculpting of humans from one thing into another. This time, however, she has chosen to balance the tale by following two distinct types of renovations, in two distinct directions. The lines are circular, taking the main characters through individual story arcs to meet again as different people, or finished people, if you prefer. And even so, there are questions enough to keep you thinking about it long after closing the book. There is a little bit of something for most everybody here, from rape to extreme body mods, with liberal (and occasionally horrifying) sprinklings of bondage, discipline and all kinds of sex in all kinds of places. Nothing is too extreme, even the disturbing shadows of psychopathic lunacy. Or is it? As I said, the pathologies are clear, but the reality is not. Enter this world at your own risk, as it is the place on the old sea charts marked, Here there be monsters. Your job will be to figure out which ones are, and which ones aren't. Good luck. --Tobias Tanner

I think readers who like the dark side and readers committed to fetish will both like it.

It was just hard-core enough to give a rookie erotica reader like me a nice onramp into the genre while keeping my attention and teaching me some things.

My problem with this book was not the content, so please don't think that I am judging based on WHAT I read.

My problem with this book was not the content, so please don't think that I am judging based on WHAT I read. I am judging based on how it was written. The book opens with, and I kid you not, 3-4 prologues. They were all snippets of the larger stories. It was very confusing to read a prologue and then jump into a different story without knowing what happened or when you would be getting back to those specific characters in that specific time. Also, the beginning-middle of the book deals with the story of Michael and Karen. No problem. But then it throws in Delia's story, jumps to another story about some guy named Ward, goes back to Michael and Karen, then we hear about some random New Orleans voodoo witchery or something. While all this was happening we also have times where Michael is at different stages of his life before Karen. Sound confusing? Try actually reading it. In the end I just skipped everything but for Michael and Karen because I just wanted to know what happens to them (only to be disappointed with a MAJOR cliff hanger). If you're thinking of getting this book I would suggest the actual paperback copy because it is easier to skip back for story clarification than it is with a Kindle copy. Also, you could mark where one thread of the story ends and then resumes. Overall, the books composition is what really killed the story for me.

If you love the TV show Criminal Minds you'll love this book. American Psycho also. It is dark. A tortured blond cheerleader, I mean who hasn't wanted to do that? And another warrior cheerleader trying to save her from the truly psychopathic Bill Gates type businessman who looks like Jude Law. Yeah it's porn (isn't that the point?) but in my opinion it's also unusual porn - really lush, picturesque and erotic. Gratifyingly evil characters and a poor beautiful heroine with lots of deep seated fetish thrown in. Also a great voodoo subplot featuring a political consultant (do we recognize who he's based on?) who's great aunt is the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. I think readers who like the dark side and readers committed to fetish will both like it.

The synopsis sounded as if this would be a good follow-up read to the author's "Milk Bitch Trilogy". The reader first meets Karen and Michael in a Washington, DC restaurant in the "Milk Bitch Trilogy" so I thought this would be somewhat of a sequel. Karen and Michael's backstory is told along with a couple of other seemingly insignificant storyline's which just sort of show up almost out of nowhere plopped in amongst the chapters. At first I thought that there was a Kindle malfunction and the book was somehow delivered wrong but that was not the case. IMO - the book would've been much better had it only been about Karen and Michael and not included Michael's alter ego, the Beast. The book was very hard to follow. Towards the end of the "Slave Wife" the restaurant scene from Milk Bitch is included. There is such a huge hint of the underlying control that Michael has over Karen that it piqued my desire to read this book. In "Slave Wife" we find out just how Michael's control over Karen developed and progressed. It is very painful (no pun intended) path to follow.

In a time when the general public is opening up to more alternative types of writing, TV, and film, it pains me to see this book go unnoticed and 50 Shades of Grey be such a public spectacle.

I loved Slave Wife. I thought the characters were really well developed and I enjoyed the story, as well. Unlike some people have said, I thought the side-plots were extremely interesting. It was just hard-core enough to give a rookie erotica reader like me a nice onramp into the genre while keeping my attention and teaching me some things.
