Saving Micah, a state prisoner in the war between Alekia and Herra, means more than liberation.One of Gregg's darker reads, for Micah has not just been held captive since he was a young child, but abused physically, psychologically and sexually. He has been compromised in every way possible and requires attentive care. Eli, is the devoted soldier sent to rescue him. Though the Alekian court had been receiving updates as to Micah's condition, it is worse than they imagined. Thus, the primary focu [...]

4.5 stars, rounded up.This is one of the best M/M books I've read. The beginning is powerful and haunting, the end profoundly satisfying, and the whole of the journey in between emotionally resonant and SCORCHING hot. I mean, seriously. HOT. The first time Micah and Eli made love, I was such a quivering puddle I could barely hold my Kindle. Kari's prose is careful and evocative, her attention to detail superb. I mentioned in one of my status updates how Micah, after ten years of near-starvation, [...]

“These walls are funny. First you hate 'em, then you get used to 'em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them. That's institutionalized.” Red – The Shawshank RedemptionAlthough I regretted a few shortenings and I would have liked it to be exploited in something bigger, Spoils of War is an erotic romance which manages to tell much in a very short story.Micah is captured when he is only a young boy. He is a war tribute and is enslaved. His life freezes in obedience; he exists only [...]

This was a dark read, slightly disturbing at the beginning but ending up as a sweet romance. Micah’s ignorance of who he actually is and what he goes through in his adolescent years is extremely sad. It was made all the better when he was finally rescued by Eli and I was a little shocked when it came to the little twist at the end with Micah actually being Eli’s master.I really enjoyed this book, however, I would have liked to have read more about Micah’s homecoming. How he finally meets h [...]

Spoils of War is 100% what not so long ago people defined a savage romance, or, a bodice ripper. But actually to Micah it goes even worst than the heroines of those old fashioned romances, since if they were raped, it was only at the hands of who will become their chosen hero; unfortunately here Micah, the kidnapped son of a king is continuously raped by his captors for almost a year before Eli, his rescuer, can free him.Micah, kidnapped at 8 years old and traumatized by the death of his own mot [...]

Another 4.5 read. I'm not much for half stars but sometimes I really want to rate something with a 5 even when it doesn't necessarily live up to all my expectations what a 5 star read should be like. Before everything else, this story is hot! Like squirm in your seat and sit on your hands hot! The characters are wonderful and the whole severity of the situation really had me devouring every word. It would have been great if the story was longer and if they talked more. I found that I missed that [...]

Well, I couldn’t care less about the characters, and there wasn’t even much of plot. Micah’s character was too passive, his insistence on his beautiful blond hair, but ugly dark hair made him also superficial. Eli seemed more like a nurse than a lover! There was no chemistry between them, I honestly was just expecting Eli to fetch him home and not lay a hand on him, the relationship between them was boring no matter how much they tried! Besides, the name Xerxes made me laugh, I’m really [...]

Thank God for understatement! I had avoided this book fearing a brutal start, and yes, it was, but the detached narration of the events made it much easier to wade through. Of course, it mimics Micah's own emotional detachment and it is his struggle to break out of his self imposed prison after freed from his shackles by Eli that make the story interesting. Eli's tender care and the sweet developing relationship between the two is the delicious icing on this cake.

Micah, son of the King of Alekia is kidnapped during the plundering of his home country as a way of controlling his family and kingdom. The ten years he is held hostage by the King of Xerxes is a time of pain, despair and hell for Micah, until one day he is rescued and must face a man and a world he knows nothing of. This was a very hard book to review; It was nothing short of a rollercoaster ride for me. I changed my mind constantly.I was intrigued by Eli when he was introduced (he was a wonder [...]

There are some books that are not nice to read, in the sense that they are neither relaxing nor entertaining. This is one of them for me. The story, however, is one that is well worth reading if you are interested in the way humans deal with adversity and a negation of who they are. Unfortunately, we have had quite a few examples in our history where one group of people thought themselves superior (for whatever reason) and attempted to destroy those they fond objectionable. Reading the facts and [...]

The beginning of the book is really sad. I think it was difficult to portray the abuse and the violence Micah endured so matter-of-factly. I think that's the way it was because Micah never knew anything else since he was a child. I must confess that I didn't hope in a better life for the narrator at one point, because when one finds comfort in the abuse, because at least it's known, what's to save? What will be the path to salvation, what the cost?Eli is the light of the book. The way he takes c [...]

I'm giving this a 4.5 rounded up to 5.I won this book in a competition and was very glad I did.Kari has a wonderfully fluid style of writing. Unlike another reviewer, I actually liked the way she broke up the flow with the single sentence paragraphs. I felt they suited the simple way of thinking of a captive deprived of communication.Her world building was good and I could picture each scene.Given the short time frame the book covered, not much further emotional development could probably be don [...]

LOVE IT! Fantastic story so far. Completely captivating opening chapter - I've seldom read one like it. Sets a distinct tone. Oh my the romanceere is lots of sex but it never comes off as heavy handed to me. I really liked it - Micah and Eli stole my heart with tenderness. Main theme: resilience of the human spirit. You'll love it!

Sexy short storyWell written and edited. Tragic tale of a young prince who is kidnapped by a neighboring kingdom and kept at a slave and leverage. This is his tale of rescue, redemption, and love. Beware, non-con. Recommended.

After reading the blurb about this book, I was a little skeptical – it was definitely something that was a little out of my comfort zone. At the same time, it seemed to build up a great story, so I stepped out my happy little box and gave this one a read.I actually read Spoils of War twice, just to make sure I didn’t miss something. I didn’t. I think this book would have been better suited to be a full-blown novel, rather than a novella. There was so much potential for a great plot to be d [...]

This was an interesting read with some things I really liked very much and some that didn't work so well for me.What I think was really great about the character of Micah, the abducted prince, was how he kept his "slave mindset" after being freed. The sudden freedom didn't magically change who he felt he was after a decade of slavery and abuse. He still acted like nothing much has changed for him except his environment, his master and the way he was treated by him. This made Miacah a believable [...]

2.5Okay I'm just going to jump right into this review.It wasn't a bad book. Well it was, just not that bad. It wasn't painful or anything to read.It's just a lot of things niggled me.At the beginning he was imprisoned and the things that were described like the slavery, bad treatment, rape. It sounded all very horrible. Well if I actually looked at the words it was pretty damn horrible to read. But it didn't actually make me feel anything inside. It didn't feel real to me, so I didn't feel any p [...]

I've had this book forever, but somehow never got around to reading it. I think, in part, because I wasn't sure how much I'd really enjoy it. I loved it! It was a lot of sex, yes, but sex that showed something about the characters and/or was necessary to move the story forward. So while there was lots of sex, none of it felt gratuitous (not that there's anything wrong with that, especially if I'm the one having it!).As soon as I finished it, I went to the author's web site in search of a sequel.

For a short story, this packs a really incredible emotional punch. Well written story of a forced slave in a fantasy/historical world. I felt so incredibly sad for Micah and what he had to endure. Then, my heart broke for him as he struggled to understand his relationship with his rescuer-Eli. Had a nice little twist at the end. I cried in a few spots for Micah but (view spoiler)[he gets his HEA (hide spoiler)]. Really good short.

It's hard to believe there are only 69 pages in this book, it felt like a lot more and there was a lot packed in. Great little story, hot sex and very likeable characters. I'm eager to read the next book now.

This one leaves a ton of questions unanswered and was way too short.Loved the character voice and was constantly puzzled how something so plotless could keep me so glued to the page. Sometimes bleak, sometimes sugar shock inducing, it manages to keep the balance and me reading.

I enjoyed the story but didn't feel all the drama I read others felt. Yes, he had a shit life, for sure but the entire book seemed like one big sex scene. Not bad or anything, just not real painful. Super sweet ending.

Well, that was different. And hot. And descriptive. And hot. Micah might be the sweetest, saddest little thing I've ever read. He had my heart from the get go. Him uttering "Puh-la-ee-ss Eli" just about broke my heart in two. Enjoyable quick little read with two great MCs.

I've heard good things about this author, so I was looking forward to reading something written by her. I probably shouldn't have chosen this particular book as a start. I find that novellas and short stories aren't things a lot of authors are comfortable with writing, and this is something I found to be true with this particular book.The problem, mainly, is that the story could have gone much further than the author had touched upon. It has a lot of potential, as a full length novel. The world [...]

I was surprised by how much i loved this book. Loved it, loved it, loved it! Given what I knew the subject matter was in the beginning, I was not anticipating such a sweet and hopeful book.Micah was a fantastic narrator, I loved being in his head. I am amazed that he was able to endure the things that he did not only without turning bitter or hateful, but capable of so much love and hope and trust and innocence and delight with the world. He quite possibly may be my new favorite 1st person narra [...]

There's no holding back in Ms. Gregg's storytelling. We dive right into slavery, cruelty, beatings and rape. The first two chapters, I was outraged and wanted to kill the bastards. When I finally learn the poor boy's name, I melted a little. Micah is a lovely name which I adore. Then Eli rides in to save the day. I really enjoyed this story. It was romantic and so sweet, the love between Eli and Micah. I easily read this in one sitting in roughly 30 minutes. From the very first page I was entran [...]
