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.
Cari Silverwood is brilliant! I was absolutely blown away by the second book in this series. I am in awe of her creative ability. Aerthe is an alternate reality, so similar to Earth in some ways but so opposite in others. There's true beauty and wonder on this planet. The converse is also true. Violence, hatred, evil, and death abound. There's also so much uncertainty and mystery. As always, her characters are deliciously complex and beyond merely interesting. The people on Aerthe, especially the humans, are far from perfect. I felt a clear connection to Sawyer and Ari. One of the driving themes of the book, for me, was the relationship between Sawyer and Ari. Their struggles, the moral ambiguities facing them, haunting them, the uncertainty surrounding them, are all captivating. There was also another unique character from both books who is delightful and absolutely enchanting. (Nope, not telling that secret. You'll have to read the books to find out who I'm referring to.) And the ending? I'd never have imagined the ending Ms. Silverwood created. I adored this book from beginning to end. Kudos, Ms. Silverwood, for again exceeding every expectation I had. You set the bar higher for yourself with each book. I didn't think you could do better than Acquired Possession but you've once again outdone yourself! Your talent is impressive, your writing ability exceptional!
One final note. Please be an informed reader and consumer! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language dark, nonconsensual sexual scenes, and violence. If you don't enjoy this genre, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Use these resources. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. It's not fair to the author! She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
