Servitude is a wonderful fantasy piece that deviates from the traditional elves and humans to give us a unique world that has science as well as magic, without being science fiction. Set in a world with five cities ruled by five families, political intrigue is high and the danger to our main character, Lornyc Reagalos, even higher.
I loved the feel of the story, the combination of multidimensional science along with magic was new plot base and created a different vibe with orb powered portals and horse drawn carriages. Added to that, Noble families with servants reminiscent of feudal lords, a rich background is drawn for the story to take place on.
I liked Lornyc and Methian, though they weren’t the most demonstrative couple, you could see the attraction and care there. Their circumstances often precluded us getting a good look at them together, but the time that they were showed their commitment. The romance seems secondary to the political intrigue plot, but it is well developed none the less.
My only complaint is that I felt the novel dragged a bit in spots. There are a few scenes I feel were unnecessary and just lengthened the novel without adding to the story. However, these truly were few.
I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to continuing the story with Idolatry, Book Two in the series.
The weak points are: the world-building wasn't quite there, the partner of the main character, Methian, was kind of annoying and didn't do much for the plot, I really expected something different.
I think that if you just want to read an entertaining novel that does not challenge your mind, this is for you.
This was somewhat of a gem, since I've wanted to give up on buying Dreamspinner books with drawn covers. Seriously I'm surprised this book doesn't have more reviews. Rebecca Cohen was a new author to me so I was a bit aprehensive before reading this one and actually nearly gave it a miss, since it didn't have all that much reviews to go with it.
Luckily I have a thing for good written novels featuring royalty and this one had a forced bond so it made me curious enought to give it a go.
First thing is this story has a plot and a complex one and I actually didn't figure out who the bad guys till late in the book, with some I know that nearly from the beginning, not here.
The worldbuilding is also fairly complex, actually it feels like the end is a bit rushed and more could and should be said about Lorrics reign, while the story did slug a bit in the middle.
The characters are, well to be honest they are human with faults and vices and some murdering intention. They make mistakes, sometimes they are idiots, then silly, then they are jeaulous, protective and in love. I did say this story was complex, well and so are the characters.
I would recommend this to everyone, who loves a good plot in m/m romance books and likes to read fantasy.
