Review: Dark Covenant
Dark Covenant by Gryvon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Tentacle lovers, this is a story for you.
Eli is a boy who is doing his best to keep his family together. As the oldest child, he sacrifices to ensure his younger siblings have a better chance in life. When Eli suddenly manifests magical powers, he is given an opportunity to make a huge difference. The Academy which teaches magic will give him a free scholarship, if he just signs on the dotted line. It is a deal with the devil.
This story is wonderfully well-crafted. It is rich in character development and world building. In addition, the twisted dark theme is insidiously erotic. The non-con rape of Eli is superbly done. Author Gryvon plays a trick on the reader by making the humans hideously monstrous and treating the strange alien-like monster seductively loving. Eramus is the mysterious male with an agenda of his own. Will he help or hinder Eli? Who is Eramus and why is he so sexy?
This is my first story by Gryvon and I want to read more. The imagery in this story is strong and vivid. There is more showing than telling which brings the book to life for me. The plot is tightly written with not a word wasted. Gryvon also does an excellent job with character development. The reader feels for Eli, who is the underdog readers admire. When Eli is abused, the reader cringes and feels sorrow. Although, the way Gryvon writes the tortures, a reader can't help but be aroused. It's a guilty pleasure which I revel in.
This m/m erotica is recommended for dark non-con lovers who enjoy tentacle penetration.
