Cari Silverwood & Jennifer Bene-Mesmer

Cari and Jennifer are two of my favorite writers ever, and they have teamed up to write a very dark, downright dirty, and devilishly disturbing book called Mesmer. This book takes place in Cari’s mesmer-verse, but it can totally be read as a standalone, if you aren’t familiar with the universe.

So, here’s the story. Mesmers are men who have an extra power. They can collect women. In other words, with certain women, they can completely take control of the woman. They can make her feel lust and pleasure, or they can, you know, not. But, if that was all the mesmers wanted, it wouldn’t be so bad. What they really like to do is depraved shit, and shit that will hurt women. They like pain. They like to cause it. It’s like it feeds them.

Tomik is a mesmer. He has a life he likes. He collects women, he does terrible things to them, he disposes of them. He has a brotherhood that he hangs out with, and they all do all kinds of fucked up things.

Then, there’s Hannah. Hannah and Tomik were friends and very close as teenagers. But then, Tomik just left, and Hannah doesn’t know why. But she does know that she missed him, and when she had trouble, she did the only thing she could think of. She called Tomik for help. The problem is, she doesn’t know what Tomik is.

Tomik is really layered. I can’t tell you if I like him, hate him, hate to like him, like to hate him, want him to die by fire, or want to fuck him. Or, you know, all of the above. He starts out really kind of flat, but with Cari and Jennifer, you can bet he doesn’t stay that way. It really is fascinating to watch him and watch the changes in him and how he reacts to the world and to Hannah.

Hannah is harder for me to get a grip on. I think, though, that’s because of Tomik. I think I see bits of her popping through, but I’m never sure. It’s really interesting to watch and to find out. I know that I will be thinking about her for a while and trying to figure out who is the real Hannah and who isn’t.

I think that Cari and Jennifer egged each other on, and I’m not going to complain if they did, because that means that we ended up as the winners, because I’m telling you, this book is just totally awesome. It’s one of those that I’m mad that I’ve already read it because I’ll never be able to read it for the first time again, and I really want to.

And I don’t know who came up with the rocking horse, I just know that I will never look at them the same again.

Greta is really interesting. I really want to know more about her. Hopefully we can find out more about her at some point.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Cari Silverwood-Condemned

Cari is back with a hot, kinky scifi story. This one is a RH, and we are back with the mauleons, which means more of Cari’s addiction to HUGE cocks. Oh, and by the way, if you read the acknowledgments, don’t believe her. She’s not all sweet and innocent. She can only be egged on if she has the idea to begin with. Anyway, back to Condemned and 4 huge cocks.

Avalon is a huleon. She’s a human/mauleon hybrid. And she’s being blackmailed by her uncle to go steal from the mauleons. Not only is he blackmailing her to steal, but he’s getting her to steal a royal artifact from the mauleons, and one which will probably keep the war going for right now. Everything seems to be going reasonably well, until her teammates throw a flare right at the roof that she is hiding on. It catches the roof on fire and catches the attention of the 4 mauleons who are right under the roof that she’s hiding on. And whoops, that’s not a very good thing to have happen. The next thing that Ava knows is that she’s sentenced to death, and not a very nice one. She’s to be impaled on a spear, paraded through town, and then shot in the head.

Takk, Timin, Zo, and Kondio are a squad that have been together for a long time during this war. They have been through a lot together, and they are good friends as well as teammates. Takk is their leader, and he has led them well. Now, he’s gotten them to place where they have the honor of killing this thief. Only, there’s just something about her. Something that won’t let them participate in her death. So, they decide they are going to steal the thief.

Of course, it’s never as easy as it sounds, because that wouldn’t be so fun, would it? We get to watch while Avalon plots and schemes, trying to figure out how to get away. She almost does a time or two. And I’m sure we can all guess exactly how well that went over for her, can’t we?

I like Avalon. I also feel sorry for her. She’s been abandoned by everyone who should’ve ever taken care of her. And because she’s a hybrid, she gets shit on all sides. Too mauleon for the humans, too human for the mauleons, and just ignored and mistreated by everyone around. I don’t think anyone has ever just taken care of her or try to help her. Instead, she gets jerkoffs like her uncle who force her and blackmail her into doing things. Or people who beat her so that she will become the best thief possible. She does have Nibbles, but she hasn’t had him long. And Nibbles is so very, very, very cute.

I think of Takk, Zo, Kondio, and Timin, I like Zo and Kondio the most. Of course, that may be because they warm up to Avalon first. But Zo really takes care of her and worries about her. Of course, he spanks her too, but hey, that’s all part of the taking care of her too, so it works out well. Timin took a while to warm up, but I wonder how much of that is just trying to get through all the bullshit from the war and the residuals from his injury. I think that one of my favorite non-sex scenes is when Avalon is taking care of Timin. He doesn’t really want her to, but she’s there just caring for him.

Takk took me a minute to figure out how I felt about him. I could tell that he was an honorable male and one who was just trying to do the best for his friends, but I think that he sometimes saw things in a much more black and white way than it needed to be seen. I dunno, maybe it’s just me.

Watch for Easter Eggs that Cari has planted, because she does that.

I love ARBO. And even better, I love the full revelation we get about him, lol.

I thought it was funny that the priest were basically begging Takk to take Avalon away.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Cari Silverwood-Ruled

I have a sneaking suspicion that Cari Silverwood is a size queen. Ruled is just another piece of proof towards that suspicion. You’ll see why I think that, especially if you read it, but let’s just say that this, Drake could put a horse to shame.

Calliope has just left her brothers’ funeral. She went from being princess to soon to be installed as the monarch in waiting. It was never supposed to be her. It’s not anything that she’s ever even wanted. She didn’t receive any training in ruling. Her brothers were older, and they were supposed to be next, but when the satellites that keep their world quarantined killed her brothers, she ends up with no choice. And an evil general paints her even further into the corner because he comes in and gives her an ultimatum. She will sign everything over to him and let him rule. Or else. She has 24 hours to decide, and oh, by the way, she should go to her room now and stay there. Well, Calli isn’t all that compliant, and she remembers that her father always told her to go to a mauleon named Drake.

The mauleons are another sentient species that is trapped on this planet with the humans. Humans tend to look down on them, because you know how it is. Drake is basically the big crime lord for the mauleons and has had his hands in just about everything, including spying for the old King. So when Calliope shows up asking for help, he knows exactly what he should do. Which, you know, starts with stripping her naked and starting to have his wicked way with her. He also has plans and papers for Calli to sign. His aren’t as bad as the General’s, but they are life altering.

This is a very Cari kind of story. And I’m saying that in a good way. It’s like some of her lighter scifi stories that she’s been writing lately, with that same touch of hot sex, some humor, and some darkness. It doesn’t have as much humor as some of the other books like Prey or Blade, no talking sword for one thing, but there is still more than what would be in the Mesmer or Machinery of Desire books. There are some really intense scenes and all the conspiracies that you could possibly wish for, so yay for that. I love those things.

I like Calliope, both as Princess Calliope and as Calli. I think I prefer her best as Calli, which she’s much more down to earth, not like she is ever all hoity-toity royal, but it’s Calli who wanders the city and goes to stare at the babies and plays with the kids. I think that she is smart, kind, and will do well ruling her people, especially with Drake at her side.

Drake is smart and canny. He knows more than anyone knows that he knows. And he’s only going to let out so much knowledge at a time. I have to wonder what Drake knows at any given time. I like him. I wouldn’t trust him, unless I were Calli, not all the way. It’s hard to trust someone who may or may not know all your secrets, right down to what kind of personal hygiene products you like.

ruled

OMG, the scene with the mauleons’ ruling council is just so hot! I mean, damn.

And Sassi the robot? Maybe not quite as good as a talking sword, but still pretty awesome as humorous relief.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Make sure to go review it when you are done. Happy reading!

Cari Silverwood-Exquisite Possession

Cari’s newest book is making me both really happy and really sad. Happy in that it’s a new Cari book, and that’s always a reason to be happy. Sad in that it’s the last book in the Machinery of Desire series, and I really love that series. (And more than just for the fact that there is a character named after me in the 3rd book.)(Never annoy an author, lol.) The world-building that goes on in this series is amazing, and the characters are fascinating, their evolutions make for a great story. Especially JI. So, let’s talk all about Exquisite Possession.

You really do need to have read the rest of the books before you get to this one. You can get away with not reading the rest of the series when you read the others, although I wouldn’t recommend it, but JI’s journey starts in the very first book and moves along through the rest of the series, until we finally get to EP, and JI’s book. You have to have read the entire series to get the full arc of JI’s story. If you haven’t read them yet, there are going to be spoilers in this review. Sorry.

So, JI was a mech. A huge one. A battle mech. Like a multi-story battle mech that would kill all the mekkers’ enemies. But, over the years, he went nearly dormant. Until he was woken up by Emery, as she took the mechlings up to the roof of the landship for them to charge up. She would tell him stories of Shakespeare and all kinds of other things. When she managed to escape, JI went with her. Eventually, his large battle form was destroyed, leaving him in his alternate mech, basically an escape capsule, a mostly man sized mech. Of course, he took his huge brain and tried to cram it all into a tiny brain, and it was driving him insane and slowly killing him. So, after meeting Sawyer and Ari and traveling with them, he learns some interesting things, and takes over a scav called Osta, who was a bigwig. Then he wanders through Ryke and Gio’s story, and learns alllll about fuckspears. Which are totally a thing, BTW. And now, he’s going for his own story.

JI/Osta is trying to find Fern, Sawyer’s sister. Back in the first book, the evil judge raped, tortured, and stabbed her, then threw her out the landship to die. Luckily, there were a lot of sun mad mechlings who had been thrown out at the same time. Even more luckily, one of them had been programmed with medical programs, and that mechling put her back together, as much as possible. The mechling couldn’t fix her hand all the way, but it was able to put staples into her stomach to fix the wound. She has managed to hook up with some grounders, and they have gone to ground in a destroyed city near the ocean where they are waiting for monster season to get some waik crystals.

That’s where JI and Aunt M find her. She’s acting as a sniper to help protect the grounders and uses mechs by linking with them so that she can see through their eyes. She ends up shooting JI, twice, which makes him not so happy. But he does see Fern which makes Mr. Happy oh so very happy. JI is now in a flesh and blood body, and he’s like a 12 year old boy learning how to masturbate for the first time. He has all these ideas, and not necessarily a lot of experience in putting them into practice. But with Fern, he wants to chain her up, fuck her face, tie her down, use some fuckspears, all the dark, filthy, deviant, and devious things you might possibly be able to think of. The nice thing is that Fern is pretty much willing to let him do all those things. She likes them. He knows this because he can pick up echoes of her feelings through his tenuous connection to the mechlings, so he always knows when he has to stop, which makes this story ridiculously filthy. I mean, he’s basically right in her brain, so not only does he get to see her physical reaction to whatever is going on, he also gets to feel what’s going on in her head.

Anyway, it’s never that easy, is it? The evil judge is working deep in the background, and he would love to get his hands back on Fern, and on JI and Aunt M. He has terrible plans that will pretty much mean life on Aerthe will no longer work the way that it does now.

As with the majority of Cari’s books, there are a lot of layers and levels in the story and in each of the characters. I mean, we literally have the Tin Man who now has a heart and who is trying to figure out what it means to be human-ish, and then we have Fern who fell down a hole into another world altogether, where everything is topsy-turvy. Of course, I’m pretty sure that if Lewis Carroll or L. Frank Baum put cocks with spikes or fuckspears in their books, they wouldn’t have been published, and they would probably have been arrested or tossed into Bedlam. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have a metal man trying to figure out what it means to be human and trying to learn his own code of ethics and morals or a woman who has been tossed through the looking glass and who has to figure out what is happening on this side of the mirror. So, maybe Cari really write the perverted Alice in the Land of Oz? Hmmm… Either way, Fern and JI really do have quite a journey to take to even get to the point where they are now, and it’s not like everything is beer and skittles once they get together.

Of all the books in this particular slaveworld series, this is really the most consensual. I think that there are parts of it that are the hottest as well. I think that more consensual aspect of the story lightens up some of the story, to some extent. But, that doesn’t mean it’s light. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a Cari Silverwood story, but…

black-and-white-black-and-white-body-1570715

Oh, I have so many, many things to say down here. But, most of what I want to talk about happens at the very end, so it would totally spoil things, and it would totally spoil things more than I ever choose to do.

I will say, that there were places where I got a whole Dune type feeling, and I’m pretty sure that if you’ve ever read Dune, you would be able to figure out what point I’m talking about.

I do love JI’s entire journey though. It seems like he would have been a side character, but he turns out to be so much more important than he started out in the beginning.

Fuckspears, spikes, and cages, ohhhhh myyyy. I swear to all the fucking gods of fucking that Cari gets right into my head sometimes and knows what buttons to push.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Seriously, go check out the entire Machinery of Desire series, if you haven’t yet, you won’t regret it. Happy reading!

Cari Silverwood-Blade

So, Cari Silverwood is obviously obsessed with huge cocks, especially if they include tentacles or can do tricks. My evidence is the Dark Monster Fantasy series. Because trust me. HUGE dicks, multiple-dicked males, and tentacles. Yes, please. I’m more than happy to be obsessed with Cari’s cocks too. And in Blade, we get a butt load of cocks to be obsessed with.

Do you know how weird the word cock is when you write it out several times in one paragraph?

Anyway, today we get the story of Ledderik, the formerly dickless cyborg who was Lord Zarblu’s right hand man. His leading lady is Thorn, who isn’t quiet a s’kar, but who does have a tail. Zarblu also left him Smorg, a smart ass talking sword, and Tiana. Tiana was a gift to Led for him to torture. Instead, he takes her to the nixnix, where she has her own adventure. Check out the end of the book for a little Tiana story.

Led is tired. He’s decided that he’s going to go live a virtual life until his credit runs out and then he will just die a perma-death. As he’s sitting at a bar, Thorn walks past, and every man in the bar, including him, stands to attention for her. She seems to exude some something. He decides to follow her. Not because he wants to fuck her, really that’s not it. He just likes to kill people and following her will mean that he will get to kill lots of people.

Thorn is basically on a snipe hunt as part of a ritual. What she doesn’t quite realize is that she’s coming into her first sexual cycle, so when she sees all those men following her, she thinks that they want the teddy bear that she’s carrying, it must be worth something. Ummmm… nope.

Led goes chasing her, saves her, and detaches his cock to fuck her silly. Then he has to go give up his body, but he begs for a loaner body, while Thorn goes to finish her run. At the ceremony, Led shows up in a new body and Thorn finds out that she’s a biohazard and if she doesn’t leave the planet, she’ll be arrested.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and all those in between, this is fucking filthy in only the way that Cari Silverwood can make something filthy. The sexventures in this one are wide and varied and OMFG hot. Cari is just so wrong in all the right ways. I mean, holy fuck yes. I think I might have passed out a couple of times, just in sympathy with Thorn. The thing about these books is that you are not just getting filth, you’re getting funny filth. Smorg is obnoxious, but funny af. I need more Smorg and Jocelyn.

14779575677cc31da00bca25d9b2bd7e248cbe24ad

Ummmm… I need a mollok. I really, really, really, really need a mollok. Just for one night. That’s all I ask. That’s not too much to ask for, is it? Of course, I might be ruined for life if I get one, but damn, what a way to go.

I love how Led jumps bodies and one of his considerations is what kind of cock the new body has. That way he can keep Thorn happy. I love that she’s his purpose.

OK, that’s all I have to say. Go read all of the books. While there are 3 in the series, they aren’t serials, so you can just skip around, if you want. Happy reading!

 

Cari Silverwood-Steel

Recently, Cari gave us Prey. Today, we get Steel, the second book in the series. They aren’t directly related to each other, except for giant dick. And I mean giant dick with a capital giant.

OK, this one is oh my fucking gods of fucking good. You’ve got a nice touch of darkness, a lot of sexy, sexy, sex, not 1 but 2 enormous tools, and one feisty heroine with her trusty invisible dragon and data knife, which gets some unusual storage. Just in case you’re wondering, yes, I did love this story.

So, Baz was tortured by CESS. They ripped him to bits. Lucky for him, the cybermonks of Ommm found him. They turned him into a cyborg and put him back together. They made him all better except for one.small.thing. They gave him a substandard dick. He was told that as soon as he rescued a princess and brought her to them, he would get the dick he always wanted.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, Ember and Hoss are fighting to do their job while they are on a planet that is under attack from a hostile species. Hoss is Ember’s guard and friend. Ember is a valuable CESS employee, a principal data extractor, or prinCESS. She’s there to get some CESS data off this planet, but she’s pretty sure that it’s not going to happen because of the attacking aliens. She figures that means she can live it up in the last few¬† minutes that she can actually live. You see, not only is Ember a prinCESS, she’s also a size queen. She likes big dicks and she cannot lie, you other ladies can’t deny. And Hoss is packing a trouser anaconda, and she can’t wait to get wrapped around that. So they go sit on the roof, and get real friendly.

Baz gets a mayday message and gets to the building where Ember and Hoss are sporting, just after the main event ends. Then he rescues them, and when he finds out that Ember is prinCESS, he says that he is going to take her to the cybermonks. Ember is mostly OK with that, because she wants to see them too, to find out some information.

Alright, let’s talk about the compartment that she has to go into during their travels. I think that Baz has a whole lot of fun with it, and it could totally be uncomfortable to a reader, but I thought it was pretty fucking hot and perverted in the right ways. Or wrong ways. Or whatever.

There is a lot of fun in this book. There is a lot of really hot fucking in this book. There is a lot of wordplay, I mean, the cybermonks are named Stryng Theory, Lightnyng Files, and Erroar Code. Is that not just epically funny? There are also GIANT DICKS. Your average size queen would run scared from these things. Ember runs, but not away from them, and she’s not scared. Baz’s new tool is a lot of fun, and ummm… maybe a little scary? And we can’t forget the cute little deer.

dust-lake-nature-8167

I never trusted the cybermonks. I knew that they were up to something from the very beginning. The aphrodisiac was tricksy. Too bad Ember didn’t get to have her revenge on them. I would’ve loved to see what she would’ve done to them. She’s wicked deadly with her data knife. And speaking of that, what the bad guys do with that? Yeah…

Alright. I love this book and this story. It’s funny, hot, dark-adjacent, and a great adventure. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.

Cari Silverwood-Prey

Cari generally writes pretty dark dubcon stories. This one isn’t dark. Or rather, it’s a funny dark. As Cari says, this is the dark you read when you are dark’ed out and need a break. It’s the pansy dark. It’s more towards dusk than it is towards midnight. That doesn’t matter though, it’s still great.

The way this book came to be is really interesting. You see, Cari has a group on FB. We’re an interesting group. There’s an artist named Luis Royo who does some amazing work. A lot of his art involves huge giant males with smaller sexy women. Cari saw this picture and came up with a snippet that went along with it.

Then, Cari told us about story/fantasy she had. We were all like oooooh, sounds so hot. And thus, Prey was born.

So, Mila, of the very tight bodysuit with an interestingly located strap and buckle and knee high boots, is a pretty good treasure hunter. But the last hunt she went on didn’t turn out so well for her. She ended up with an illness that actually has its own instruction manual. When her sister screams for help, again, Mila would normally ignore the scream, but this time she decides not to. She’s going to go save her sister from the giant stoneshifter that she’s about to be sacrificed to.

Lord Zarblu is a giant stoneshifter. I mean, cock the size of your thigh kind of giant. He has to have a willing sacrifice every 10 years or he turns to solid stone for the next 10 years. But this sacrifice doesn’t get laid down on a table and stabbed with a stone knife. Instead, she gets laid on a table and stabbed with a stone dick. Mila’s sister has been telling Zarblu all about her, and he is intrigued.

When Mila hits his planet, she finds out that she’s going to have to fight and win all the fights to save her sister. But before she gets to the fight, she has to end up fucking a different kind of giant, who leaves her weak-kneed and all her joints a little bit loose.

There are all kinds of great things going on in this book. You have giant stone dicks that leak aphrodisiacal pre-cum, swords that are just as likely to be deadly to you as they are to be deadly to the enemy, a fairly psychotic cyborg who really likes hurting people, and an annoying twit of a sister. You get a lot of Cari’s sexy yumminess, but you also get a lot of Cari’s humor. There are a lot of outright funny places in this book. It was a lot of fun to read and it’s going to stay in my rotation for a long time.

26166831_1812048822162057_7364047692526158093_n

OK, the sword is funny. I thought it was a hilarious little bit of fun in there. And as an older sister, I can totally relate that sisters are really fucking annoying a lot of time, but sadly, blood is thicker than water, at least sometimes.

Mila’s way of winning some of her fights is kind of tricksy and could be possibly considered cheating, but my theory is that she won, so it’s all good.

That’s all I have to say about this one, so go get it and enjoy it! Happy reading!
