    One thought on “Nikolai”

    1. A Bucketful of BlahReader advisory: Contains very vividly described m/F sex. Also a tiny spoonful of puppy play if that squicks you out.I didn't enjoy the book because a) it was too wishy-washy and b) I was thinking all the way through about how much it would annoy Isa K.The premise itself is very interesting and scarily believable: in a not-so-distant future the US has split up into four separate countries. Nick lives in the Confederacy, which interprets the Christian bible literally (the Song [...]

    2. Why I bought the book: My mate Kris recommended it.Plot: Set in a futuristic world where the USA has been carved into separate states, this story follows Nick, the ex-leader of a gang of children who comes to attention of shadowy figure James Ligatos.  After being set-up, Nick is beholden to James in more ways than one as he has to pass a series of tests before he can join James' elite group.The futuristic setting was quite fascinating. The state of Memphis where the story takes place is part o [...]

    3. What to expect from NIKOLAI :Chronology-- set in the FUTURE Romance pairing (s) MM, MF secondarySupernatural content-- NOKink levels -- Very high. The future Confederate States of America condones debt slavery, and in the secret circles of the planetary ruling councils, BDSM relationships go hand in hand with leadership skills. the shattered map of North America contains many realms with vastly different ethics and morals.

    4. In a post apocaliptic world, the United States of America don't exist no more and turmoils and revolutions are common between the secessionists states. A wealthy man, James Ligatos, leads a group of men who move among the laws and whose methods not always are legal. He traines these men picking them among the most skilled young delinquents. His last "victim" is Nicholas, also known as Nikolai, a thief.To Nikolai is proposed a contract: he will submit to Ligatos for everything, even for sex, and [...]

    5. I'm not really sure how to rate or review this book. At certain points it is definitely brutal and harsh but never really to an uncomfortable extreme. At other points it has an almost sweet undertone and you can see beautiful relationships developing. The characters are not nice people - they are brutal and vicious and show no morals nor remorse - but somehow I couldn't help warming to them. Above all, I enjoyed the story and kept wanting to turn the pages so this is what I rated the book on. I [...]

    6. This was really an incredible ride. Harsh and brutal but with affection (I think) as well. I'd really like to read book 2 if I could only find it! :)

    7. I downloaded this novel thinking I was going to get a M/M fantasy (must have been the name of the series, "The Eight Thrones Cycle") but what landed in my Kindle was something entirely different.Set in a not too far future, where Earth has fallen victim of all the problems it currently sports -wars, economic breakdowns, religious fanaticism, corruption, etc.- it is the story of how James Ligatos, a mysterious, powerful figure, rescues a young petty criminal from the street to make him his pupil. [...]

    8. I liked it enough that I looked into the next book. This seems to be a series which isn't going anywhere I want to be. For that reason, I'm done.
