The best In Allegiance Creat Kate Islay is Books I write and read original m m romance, after several years of writing fanfiction In a former life I studied and taught western religious history and culture, but for now my focus has been on writing and working as a freelance writer in Balti.I like power dynamics, historical settings, and nuanced characters and plots I published my first novel, In Allegiance, as an online serial it s now available in a significantly revised version I have novels and stories in the works, which I ll post about here.. Mathias commands the Cortesian army, but what he most longs for is home When his king gifts him with a slave from a conquered princedom, Mathias is intrigued even as he resists the king s machinations But Reve soon tests Mathias s allegiance and his heart Once the son of a prince, now a slave in a foreign land, Reve has few allies in his goal to protect his younger brotMathias commands the Cortesian army, but what he most longs for is home When his king gifts him with a slave from a conquered princedom, Mathias is intrigued even as he resists the king s machinations But Reve soon tests Mathias s allegiance and his heart Once the son of a prince, now a slave in a foreign land, Reve has few allies in his goal to protect his younger brother from the king He s forced to navigate the treacherousness of Cortesa and his own conflicted feelings for his captor Faced with what he most wants, Reve has to make a choice and Mathias has to make his An empire stands against them, but Mathias s loyalty to the king may be too much for Reve to conquer.. A viral Ebook In Allegiance “His gaze drifted to Reve. Bound or not, desperate men did stupid things, but Reve remained still, his gaze fixed away. Firelight flickered over his features, turning him briefly into a prince of tales, forlorn and tragic. Mathias dunked his head under the water to clear it.”DNF at 42%In Allegiance was a beautifully written story, with a world that was woven and built in such a believable manner. However, I am pulling out the "it's not you, it's me..." card for this one - there were so many aspects to this novel that just didn't work for me. #sorrynotsorry_______________The Plot I first heard of this story in the Captive Prince group and in a m/m forum on GR that recommended this book for lovers of mlm fantasy with slave themes etc etc etc. So the first time I saw the premise of a young prince becoming a slave to a different kingdom - I was genuinely intrigued. Then the second time when this hit my radar, I thought well if I'm not trying to find this book, this book is definitely trying to find meReading this, straight off the bat I can assure you - If you are looking for something reasonably similar to Captive Prince (although no m/m book in the whole fucking cosmos will ever hold a light to that book for me) - this is the closest you're going to get. “Perhaps someday you’ll find someone you want to serve.” The Little Things Kate Islay's writing is sophisticated. It's the type of writing I wish half the books I read had. She used words not because she could - but because she had to. That's how I knew this book had to be more than one star. Needless to say, she made reading not-so-useful detail intoxicating. But this is where the 'kinda good' parts of the book finishes up folks...Maybe it was the timing I chose to read this, because I see a whole lot of great reviews on this book, or maybe it was just these little things that added up for me. - I could not get behind the chemistry. Reve and Mathias seemed to have no build up in their romance, and romance being one of the sub-plots in this novel - I assumed we would be seeing how their relationship grew onwards and upwards. It felt like there was attraction definitely. Just not chemistry. - I stopped reading once I realized that I was reading to get through the story, and not reading because I wanted to know the story. There was no build-up and the story didn't hook me and keep me there.Mind you, the plot was so promising for me - but the execution felt a little lax. - Mathias. Was. A. Brick. Wall. - A. Horny. Brick. Wall.When reading a novel, with two mc's that have to explain two different sides of the story, I do enjoy understanding their emotional outtake on the shit thats happening around them. I got none of that from the capitols darling commander. I wish I enjoyed this more... I really do - But I didn't and so all the sighs will be given.
