Blurb:

Hero and criminal. Brute force and subtle charm. Jonathan White and Crow Belcane are polar opposites, but if they want to rescue the man they both love, they’ll have to work together.

After visiting his former lover, Crow knows only one thing: he loves Regis and he will do anything to reclaim him. But before his very eyes, Regis is abducted. Kidnapped by high-end slavers. Only Regis’s infuriating partner, Jonathan—a dangerous vigilante—is willing to help.

To infiltrate the slave ring, Jonathan and Crow disguise themselves as master and pet. As a slave, Crow is pushed to his limit. He’s chained, branded, whipped, and forced to obey Jonathan’s every order. But the longer he spends at Jonathan’s feet, the more natural his disguise begins to feel—and the more he likes it. As much as he hates Jonathan, they make a good team.

Both of them are devoted to Regis. Despite the overwhelming attraction between them, Jonathan is unwilling to betray his partner, and Crow is unwilling to come between them. But once the three of them are together again, all bets are off. With the world against them, they have only each other to cling to.

My View:

Feather Fall is the continuation of the Spell Slave series in which we have magic, action, violence, and dragons! While I still quite enjoyed this book, there were a few things that kept it from being as good as the first one.

Let’s talk about the good things first! I loved the tension between Crow and Jonathon; it was delicious. The pacing was good and kept me engaged. There were a couple of new characters introduced that I loved as well.

This book really focused on the relationship between Crow and Jonathon as most of it is them trying to rescue Regis. I would have liked to see more of them all together, but it was good to see them work out their differences. I still love Crow!

I missed Chartreuse, however. There are very few scenes with her and very little of her entertaining banter, which disappointed me. She seemed like an afterthought most of the time. I missed her humor lightening up the tension. This is a much darker book overall with quite a bit more graphic violence. Even the sexual tone is much rougher, I would almost say it could be called informal BDSM. This, in itself is not a bad thing, but different and not quite what I expected. Even though the blurb mentions that Crow is whipped, I wasn’t sure what that would look like.

The ending is a very tentative happy-for-now and I really hope there is another book. There is still so much to work out between these three and I love the world and these characters.
