    This short novella only 60 pages opened my eyes to a potential new author The story itself is too complex and filled with possibility to really develop in the short space allotted but the great world building and fascinating urban fantasy setting caught my attention and held it throughout the book Tight writing and intriguing characters keep the action moving swiftly, allowing the quick paced industrial intrigue to shine over the few sex scenes The relationship development is sacrificed for This short novella only 60 pages opened my eyes to a potential new author The story itself is too complex and filled with possibility to really develop in the short space allotted but the great world building and fascinating urban fantasy setting caught my attention and held it throughout the book Tight writing and intriguing characters keep the action moving swiftly, allowing the quick paced industrial intrigue to shine over the few sex scenes The relationship development is sacrificed for the storyline and in this case, helped the tale Although I would have liked this to be a longer,fully realized story as a short offering, this entertains.Set in Japan in a time when industry has taken over the government and imposed some odd laws, Tetsu is struggling to mount a revolution The world building is very intricate and offers a lot of detail, yet there still seems to be so muchthat was omitted and not included The companies ruling the country are only loosely identified beyond the main culprit of Iyashii The revolutionaries are equally mysterious as Tetsu is the only character introduced While this does help in not overwhelming the story with too many unimportant characters, it leaves one essential theme of the book the revolution very under defined The vast network and computer resources included are hinted at and often included in between lulls in action, but there is little understanding offered.For example, how Tetsu hacked into so many companies and their computer systems as well as how he amassed the seeming underground army he has Was he recruited or did he start the revolution himself Other than the downfall of the corporation responsible for enslaving his mother, what were his goals and motivations What did Tetsu envision once this revolution had occurred If the twist with Gabe, the male geisha, had not occurred what was Tetsu planning All of these questions and so manyare raised in the short story Although none of these are answered, the engaging quality of writing and fascinating world drew me into the tale nonetheless.The characters are briefly outlined and given hints here and there as their instant relationship develops The story is told mostly from Tetsu s point of view in third person until the very end where Gabe s point of view is shown in the last few scenes Unfortunately this doesn t give muchdepth to either character but shows the actions both men take Their relationship is based on mutual lust and later, shared goals, which doesn t account for the supposed heavy emotion displayed However, this is a small quibble as the story is a romance so the connection is expected, even if not quite successful The erotic scenes between the two are brief and interesting but the action scenes are the most dynamic of the short story.Some of the writing is slightly disjointed as there are leaps in time and story line that aren t well described The story moves incredibly quick and helps with dialogue and descriptions that engage and entertain, but there are some definite holes However, even with those problems this is a fun, interesting new world with characters that show the dark side very well The ending leaves so much room forI can only hope the author will revisit this story line in the future For fans of hard hitting urban fantasy, this is worth looking into

    In a post apocalyptic world, Tetsu is a bond worker for the Iyashii Corporation which rules in Tokyo But Tetsu is also a sideline terrorist and he exchanges information with his fellow terrorist using intricate inks on the geishas who serve the corporation executives and who Tetsu as head of security forces sees almost everyday But for him they are nothing else that tools to achieve a scope, all of them save for Youran, a male geisha He is not Japanese, probably Canadian, and his fair skin an In a post apocalyptic world, Tetsu is a bond worker for the Iyashii Corporation which rules in Tokyo But Tetsu is also a sideline terrorist and he exchanges information with his fellow terrorist using intricate inks on the geishas who serve the corporation executives and who Tetsu as head of security forces sees almost everyday But for him they are nothing else that tools to achieve a scope, all of them save for Youran, a male geisha He is not Japanese, probably Canadian, and his fair skin and blue eyes makes him unforgettable Youran s, Western Orchid, real name is Gabriel and he is one of the most sought whores, for his beauty and his ability, and Tetsu can t deny that his interest toward him isthan only for his inks When he realizes that someone is trying to kill the man, he kidnaps Gabe, officially to avoid that someone can see his inks and comprehend their meaning, but in reality since he can t see the man s death.Tetsu has never had the chance to love In this post apocalyptic world, love is noa common feelings, and only the wealthier can sustain the cost of paid sex For Tetsu, Gabriel is an unreachable dream, since the male geisha is a too valueable good for a simple man like him.Tetsu and Gabriel are two lonely souls From different origins, and social status, they find a common path in a similar purpose they have different reasons to search vengeance, but since it seems that vengeance leads to the same point, they agree to team up their forces In all this, love seems not to be considered, and Tetsu can t believe that a man like Gabriel could truly feel real desire for him.Tetsu and Gabriel are not perfect hero they could have noble reasons for what they do, but how they reach their purpose is not noble at all Without giving up the story, I can only say that, for example, Gabriel will do a thing that in a normal and classical romance would be unforgivable, but here, in this twisted world, it seems the only right thing to do.The story is not very long, less than 70 pages, but it s very good I have had in the past the opportunity to read another little story by Ann Vremont, and with this one, she confirms my believe that, in the urban romance genre, she is a very good voice

    There was a great deal of subturfuge in this novella, too much really to fit well within the frame constraints given Tetsu and Gabe have a complicated relationship starting from the very beginning, and THAT was most definitely well done The transfer from almost tender and than to over cautious and then to freaking hot and then back to almost tender kept me going.The only thing regarding the relationship that made me step back, and decide on a 3 instead of 4 , was that Tetsu, for all the det There was a great deal of subturfuge in this novella, too much really to fit well within the frame constraints given Tetsu and Gabe have a complicated relationship starting from the very beginning, and THAT was most definitely well done The transfer from almost tender and than to over cautious and then to freaking hot and then back to almost tender kept me going.The only thing regarding the relationship that made me step back, and decide on a 3 instead of 4 , was that Tetsu, for all the determination and steadfast reasoning behind his personality, he all too quickly falls into a path of following Gabe, letting Gabe run their sexual encounters AND doing what Gabe wants to do in terms of the government corporation take downs of which he has been involved in planning for years and yet Gabe comes along, and Tetsu gives up the plans he s been following, in order to trail behind Gabe.Sorry I like my puppies a little cuter and sweeter than Tetsu Was disappointed his character turned so quickly and so dramatically for little to no reason

    I appreciate the effort to write something different from the usual M M romance but I am not entirely convinced by the end result.This short story is set in a dystopian but unfortunately very plausible future where governments have abdicated their role in all if not in name and everything is globalised and commodified by all powerful corporations battling each other for supremacy.The two main characters are relevant pawns in this fight for power and achieve a relevant change in things after th I appreciate the effort to write something different from the usual M M romance but I am not entirely convinced by the end result.This short story is set in a dystopian but unfortunately very plausible future where governments have abdicated their role in all if not in name and everything is globalised and commodified by all powerful corporations battling each other for supremacy.The two main characters are relevant pawns in this fight for power and achieve a relevant change in things after their meeting.This is possibly the first problem of this work too many events, too many transitions and too many psychological changes are crammed in too few pages.The second problem is that writing is often laborious and does not manage to depict a scene exactly This is particularly true for the sex scenes, during which, unfortunately, most psychological transitions actually take place
