the general s slave Reviews
4 Stars!A wonderful read! I just want to note that my rating for 4 stars is for a short erotic story and not as a full length novel in general. Please read my review for more explanation on my rating. To begin this review, I'll start with characters.Laina Laina is a somewhat poor woman past the marital age (which I'm not exactly sure what age that was in Roman times since in Pride and Prejudice Charlotte was considered an old maid even though she was only 26/27). After her father is taken to fight in the war, Laina is forced into a slave auction now that she's single and has no one no man to look after her. Strong feminists may not be too fond of Laina, but I liked her character (probably would've loved her if the story was longer, but oh well). Laina is by no means submissive if she's completely against something. That being said, though she was defiant from the moment General Theroclide laid eyes on her, she (like any other woman who loves some sexy action) was unable to resist his advances on her (not that she had much of a choice). Though she did show signs of actually enjoying the "forced" sex (and I use that term loosely because while she didn't want it at first , she did come to enjoy it), she did show at least some fight in her. Not only is she defiant, but she's smart as well which is rare for a lower class woman back then. After learning all she knows from her father (who's a doctor), she graduated herself to an independent woman which was partly the reason why she's been single for so long because god forbid a man marries a woman who's smarter. Laina was enjoyable for me because she has two qualities I like: rebellious and smart. But I only liked and not loved her because I didn't get to watch her develop as much with this being a short story that focuses a tiny bit more on the erotic aspect. Nonetheless, there is enough character development of her for you to at least like, if not be close enough to almost love, her.Theroclide Tall, dark, and sexy? Yes please. Theroclide is the general of one of many armies in Rome. He proves to be a strategic and strong warrior as well as a man who shows no bound of loyalty to those who deserve it. He proves Laina's image of a savage warrior wrong when he treats her not as a slave (except in bed *wink wink*), but as an equal. Well, there is the part where he dresses her in barley there clothing and assigns his family emblem on her, but that was more out of sexual pleasure and caveman tendency to claim what's his than being a douche slave owner who wants to ridicule her. While he can get crazy in bed (like crazy as in he'll go probably like at least 3 rounds a night), he can be gentle as well. He also treats Laina with kindness and, as I said earlier, as an equal both on a social scale and intellectual scale. But of course, like all men who are dedicated to their duty, Theroclide pushes these feelings of endearment away as he must marry Rhasa, the emperor's daughter (though he's certainly not happy about it).Rhasa I probably would've liked her if she wasn't a spoiled bitch. I love that she wants to actually do something and not stand in the sidelines of this war, but maybe you should've done a bit more research instead of just being mostly talk and no action? That wasn't much of a problem for me though. My biggest problem was just how annoying she was being a royal bitch. How can you seriously tell Theroclides that there is no money to pay for things so taxing the poor is the best method when you're in your room that's surrounded by jewels, the finest silk, and other items that could probably feed an entire village? smh I know you're supposed to not like Rhasa, and for that I applaud you Linn Young because I certainly do hate her.As fo the romance aspect of this story, it's very minor, but that's okay since I didn't come into the story knowing it'd be all about romance. It leans a lot towards more erotic sex scenes which I thought were pretty steamy. I would've loved it if it was longer and more romance was incorporated, but eh...you take what you get. There were some typos here and there, but it wasn't bad to the point where I couldn't stand it...it was just a minor problem. Another problem that is extremely minor and is just me being picky is that the word fuck/fucking is used in the story (only twice or 3 times at the most). I might be wrong, but I don't think fuck was in their vocabulary back in their time. I apologize if I'm wrong, but since I don't think it was used back then that word kind of ruined that whole mind set of being in Rome when that word was used twice or 3 times. BUT AGAIN, it was a very minor problem and it's probably just my personal preference. It by no means completely ruins the story. Another slight downer is the entire summary of the story is basically the synopsis. Right down to the beginning, middle, and end...but I still recommend reading the story because it's better to actually read the story than to hear about it.Overall, I really enjoyed the book. Some might debate whether this book deserves 4 stars, but I think it does as a short erotic story. If I was going by a full length romance novel, this book would by no means get 5 stars so when you read this story, PLEASE know what you're getting into. I recommend this story to those who enjoy short historical erotic reads with a dominant warrior male lead and a strong female lead who can't help but give in to scream worthy sex. If you're a strong, dedicated feminist, I suggest you not read it because you'll probably have some dislike towards Laina.
It was an enjoyable read. Some good erotica but kept waiting for a bit...more.There was potential for a good story line though it was a bit discombobulated. Needed some tightening up for sure as I found there were parts that were just contradictory. Also it just seemed to take so long to do anything! Weeks and more weeks... and not much changed. There was potential for greatness with all the characters and story plot and sub plots but just lacking in everything that left everything/one with weakness. Ashame I did love the general but again some weakness when he needed to be strong. Maybe it's the actual authors lack of a strong voice that comes through? Also have to say Hated the format used by the author to write her e-book. There were no chapter/page breaks as well as paragraph breaks which meant it took a moment for the head to get around that it was the end of the scene and that a new time/location was now taking place. The format was again obviously written with longer lines that were squashed together and down sized to the reading V's the writing format. Each line was to long for the page which in itself was not a problem just after ever '.' How ever it jumped to the line after and started anew which again gave reading a warped view.
This is so hot. I cannot get enough of it. Definitely one of my favorites which I always turn to.
Boring, no character development, just sex poorly written as it is repetitive.
Want to read. Anyone willing to share?
