Ava thought that she was done with Daddy books, but she found that there were still some in her. Since I love her Daddy books, as well as anything else she writes, I am happy to see that she is sharing with us. Daddy’s World is a post apocalyptic, dystopian, DD/lg story. So much awesome in just one story.
So, here’s how our story goes. The Earth was hit by some asteroids, and it wiped out a lot of stuff. The majority of the people who remained went into New Bethel. New Bethel is an extremely patriachal society. Men have all the rights, and women have none. Women are severely restricted as to what they can do. I mean, it’s to the point where a woman can’t hug her own brother without her husband’s permission. It is illegal for that to happen. The women are all forced to be happy, submissive women, who only do whatever their husband wants them to. I’m sure that there are some women who are happy with that, but the one woman we see in that kind of relationship isn’t really happy. Her name is Felicia and is the twin sister of the hero of the story, Senator Roman Delaney.
In New Bethel, you have to be a homeowner in order to marry. That limits marriage to the upper classes and the ruling class, since it can be expensive to marry. A friend of Roman’s was trying to make it easier for the laboring class to own a home and marry, but he lost all his money and his home, which nullified his marriage. Roman, in his position of senator, didn’t think that was right and is more progressive. So he came up with a program called Paternas. Paternas is a way to bring rebel women from the Warrens and let men who might not otherwise have a chance to marry to marry. But first, those men become Daddies and give their future wives a chance at a childhood so that they can learn to act appropriately.
The Warrens is a dangerous place. It’s all ruins and there are no men, and no real adults. First all the men were taken away and disposed of, and then the adults, so there were a lot of girl children left around. These young women who have grown up in the Warrens are rebels. They don’t want to live in the patriarchal society of New Bethel. Roman wants to make sure those women have a chance, versus what his enemies want to do, which is give them a long walk out of a short airlock.
Kit is one of those rebels. In fact, she’s a rebel leader. But when Roman saw her file, he knew that she was the one. She has fire, intelligence, spunk, and energy. He wants someone who is going to be strong and stand up, not just be a thin, pallid, submissive woman who is going to pretend to be happy. He wants his wife to actually be happy, and he’s pretty sure that Kit and the Paternas project will do that.
I loved Kit. She doesn’t trust anyone at all, and isn’t willing to put down her walls. She is strong, very strong. She has had to be. I thought that she’s a fabulous character, and I’m hoping we get to see more of her. I liked Roman too. I think he went into the whole thing with his eyes as open as they could be, but he did underestimate Kit somewhat. Of course, I don’t think that was because he was blinded by his upbringing or anything, I think it was more that he just didn’t realize how incredibly strong and motivated that Kit would’ve had to be. I mean, she had to survive a whole lot of crap and then she led the resistance, so she had to be smart and clever and strong. There are a lot of layers going on in this story. There’s the nice surface layer, but once you get down, you get into conspiracies. There are several conspiracies though. There are bad ones and good ones and ones we don’t know a lot about. I’m really hoping for a lot more in this series so we can track what’s going to happen.
That first matron? She was such a bitch. I’m glad she got what was coming to her, and I wish it could’ve been even worse, because she deserved so much more.
And ugh. Felicia’s husband. What a fucking pig. Asshole. Nasty pig-fucker.
I really do want to see more of this verse to see if Roman’s plans go through. I want to find out who Jenny is. There are so many questions I need answered.
So, go check out Ava’s return to Daddy Doms. Happy reading!
