Hey, remember that [deleted by Amazon], Jonathan Powell? Well, he's baaack! And boy, does he get his.

Jonathan Powell has finished his five year debt to society for his part in the S&M killings that gripped Florida. After nearly causing the death of Violet and Mac Nighthorse, this unrepentant badboy is already eager to get back out there when an old mistress from his past zooms up in a red Mercedes. Her strong, take charge, kick a$$ persona is like waving a red flag in the face of this twisted submissive and he answers her challenge. He falls asleep on the way to wherever Mistress Dona is taking him and when he wakes up, he feels off balance and unsure. This place that Dona has brought him to instantly feels surreal and frightening. Quickly he comes to realize that things are definitely not what they seem and if he wishes to save his soul then he had better take his punishment like a good little boy.

Edge Play: Pushing yourself to the edge of your ability to cope.

If you're thinking about reading this book then chances are you are already aware of how crazy Joey W. Hill can get. You've been warned.

This was a supremely uncomfortable and awe inspiring book to read. I had no idea what it was about because none of the reviews that I had read prior to reading this book had really hinted as to how this story would unfold. Well, I'm not going to ruin it for you, either. Just know that when Mistress Dona says that she's the Goddess of Pain, the Goth Mistress from Hell, she's not lying and prepare yourself. She scared the bejeezus out of me.

This isn't so much erotica as more of a trip into hell where Joey W. Hill systematically rips the character of Jonathan AKA Nathan apart and then puts him back together again.

I had mixed feelings about this but decided to jump in because I wanted to see Jonathan redeemed. Joey Hill's novels are great and I've a fondness for the Nature of Law stories in particular. This book was a surprise for me. I guess I was expecting something different. First off let me say possible spoilers may occur since I'll mention what I liked and didnt like.

Ok, this was a surreal read. Smoke and Mirrors. Literally, I had no idea what was going on but I hung in there because Hill is gifted and whether you love or hate her work, there is something about her books that just keeps you guessing. Mistress of Redemption is the story of Jonathan Powell, the villain from Mac and Violet's story. Well kinda co villain I should say. It starts with his release from prison and he is picked up by Mistress Dona while waiting for a bus. After that all instances of normalcy vanish, starting with a desert oasis in the middle of nowhere and roaming animals. Dona basically tears Jonathan down and builds him back up by digging into his psyche and emotional reasons for why he is the way he is. Prison didnt exactly cure Jonathan of his need to play with a female domme's head. There is whipping and piercing as the reviewer mentioned but then its done and gone. Reallly. The whole otherworld mystic element of this story kept me from truly enjoying it. Stuff would happen and then Jonathan would look around and be somewhere else without any marks from the experience. I was so busy trying to figure out what was going on that I really didnt focus, couldnt focus on Jonathan and Dona falling in love. Dona, Mistress Dona I should say has quite a story of her own and I was drawn into why she was the Mistress of Pain and what compelled her to do what she did.

Whoa! Someone recommended Joey Hill to me, and I went into it not sure what I would find, but I certainly wasn't expecting this! The main character is apparently the villain from an earlier work that I haven't read, and is just getting out of prison after serving the sentence given to him at the end of the previous work. He is picked up outside the prison by a Domme from the club he used to frequent, only


she actually takes him down into Purgatory, where she is a Mistress of Redemption. He is given the opportunity to atone for his crimes through suffering, and to be reborn into a new karmic cycle. There's a lot more than that, but I can't discuss it without revealing even more spoilers than I already have.

This is not, as you might have guessed from that brief description, your garden-variety erotica, even of the BDSM variety. The sex scenes are explicit and intense and may not be for everyone--the main character first achieves sexual climax while chained to a bar by his pierced genitals, for example--but a significant portion of the story is taken up with the characters' discussions of the nature of good and evil, the corrupting power of abuse and betrayal, and the possibility of personal redemption through suffering and self-sacrifice. There is also a rather subversive cosmology that combines elements of both Christianity and Buddhism. All in all, this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but for those who are interested, it is both a sympathetic description of a non-mainstream form of sexuality, and a serious meditation on if/how a person can come back after having allowed a hard past to pull them under into the darkness.
