One Aerthe, there are three distinct groups, the Mekkers who are always on the move, the Grounders, who live in villages, and the Scavs, who are nomads who do a little bit of everything, including selling slaves and scavenging in ruins. Sawyer, one of the humans that was abducted through the portal, has been a slave to the Grounders. He's in a Grounder caravan run by Ari's uncle. When he first sees her, he tries to get free, and she threatens to castrate him. Before that happens, they are raided by a group of Scavs. Sawyer works on getting in an with them and claims Ari.
Cari creates such wonderful worlds. You can practically smell and touch Aerthe. Sawyer, our hero, isn't perfect. He's a human man, with human failings, include anger and the desire for vengeance. He has to battle himself and figure out who he is. Ari isn't perfect either. She has her own issues and dealing with her own stuff isn't any easier for her, even if she's from Aerthe. Such a great book and a great addition to the series. Each book adds more to the world and fleshes it out even more. I can't wait to find out more about this world and to read the next installment in the series.
Sawyer is originally from Earth and is a slave. Ari (Aribelle) owns him and if you read the synopsis you will have known that she orders her men to castrate him. What happens is that Sawyer ends up saving her life and Voilà the tables are turned and now she is his slave and she owes him. The story goes on from there.
Cari Silverwood as a wonderful imagination and creates characters like mechlings, Scav warbands, and landships of the Swathe.
You do need to read Acquired Possession first so that you have a basis for this book. Also, this is a dark erotic story so keep that in mind if you should choose to read this book!
I love reading Cari Silverwood’s books they are enlightening, entertaining and full of her dark kinkiness. I give Claimed Possession 4.5 stars and can’t wait to read more of her books. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. But, I have my copy of Claimed Possession pre-ordered.
The plot was great sci-fi/steampunk/dystopian erotic fiction. The social moralizing that all sci-fi has was well done, with the inhuman Mechling possessing more humanity than all the humans in the book combined. I can guess the direction of the next book in this series and I am really looking forward to reading it.
Sawyer and Ari are two complicated characters. Characters that you feel sorry for one moment and then go and act like a ass for a few chapters. There are dark elements in this book, but there is also a wonderful connection between the characters. One of my favorite characters is the mech JI. He makes me laugh, but it is also a very tragic characters.
I loved this book. Once I started reading I couldn’t stop. An amazing addition to the series and I look forward to the next book.
