    1. Branded isn t a new book as such It s a joining together and republishing with a spiffy new cover of the two novels The Gold Warrior and Twisted Brand These fantasy novels were the only two of Clare London s books that I hadn t read so far, so this reissue provided the impetus to give the new book a go.One thing to say about this book is that is defies being pigeon holed In some sense it s a fantasy SF, set on some distant planet which had been colonised in the far past of the start of the story [...]

    2. I m not going to attempt to summarize or describe the complex, involved plot of this very long novel others have done that From fifty thousand feet, I view this as the story of Gold Warrior Maen s slow, sometimes painful, always engrossing evolution from an unthinkingly loyal, chemically programmed sexual slave and tool of Aza City and its ruling women to a fully thinking, feeling man This is a long and circuitous journey, and it incorporates other important and fully developed stories, like the [...]

    3. Branded, as the blurb states, was originally sold as two separate works So, as one would assume, it s a long novel and not one you can simply sit down and read for an afternoon, but I found it well worth the time it took to read.It is set in Aza City, a place where women rule, men are their servants and those that do not measure up, either as citizens of the city, soldiers or human beings in general are exiled or executed without remorse, without pity and without a fair trial This is a tale of h [...]

    4. Book BrandedAuthor Clare LondonStar rating No of Pages 451Movie Potential Ease of reading very easy to read and followWould I read it again Yes I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK, BY THE AUTHOR, IN RETURN FOR AN HONEST REVIEW Reviewed for Divine MagazineI really loved this book, but I have to admit that it s not what I expected There was way M F explicit scenes in it than I d anticipated and this is why I knocked off one of the stars I read an M M for the M M not to have M F interrupting that so consistentl [...]

    5. This book was provided free in exchange for a fair and honest review for Love Bytes.My rating 3.5 This book begins with a glimpse of Maen s life as a Gold Warrior in the Aza City, a place where the women are the rulers and men are born to serve them Though Maen s main function aside from being a warrior and leader is to serve his mistress, there is something missing from his life Having a relationship is something that doesn t happen and would be seen as selfish, but Maen slowly becomes drawn to [...]

    6. This title was originally reviewed for Prism Book Alliance First of all, I want to warn you If you are a die hard M M and Gay Fiction reader, there is het sex described in this story It is not explicit, lyrical I guess would be a good way to describe it There is also man on man action eventually The sex, however, plays an important role in the story both MF and MM due to the way the world is structured For complete Review see prismbookalliance p 4

    7. This book started off quite interesting, with the premise that women are viewed as important in society than men, and men are their slaves including their sex slaves I haven t ever read a book that has such flipped gender roles like this before and it was really interesting to me However by the 30% mark I was really struggling to continue, despite a lot of motivation to carry on There is no real theme in this book, and I think that is where the problem lies Youcouldclass this as a romance book, [...]

    8. A Joyfully Jay review 4.5 starsAlthough I typically avoid books with M F scenes and non exclusive pairings neither of which I was aware of as devices in the book before I started to read, honestly , the world London builds around this pulls you right into the mentality of Aza City and lets even a pairing picky reader like me not just steamroller through MF non exclusive scenes, but find ways to enjoy them.The world building is wonderfully crafted with a good balance of explaining what s unique a [...]

    9. So I want to start of this review by saying I really loved this world the author created in this book This was a long book and there were parts that did drag for me a little bit Without going into too much detail and giving away any spoilers there was also a few parts in this book I honestly was just not a fan of But I did really like how this author wrote these characters and a lot of this story There was steam in this book along with some M F scenes also Which to be honest threw me of this sto [...]

    10. The writing is poor, but the real reason I gave it one is that is child pornography in the guise of erotica The culture she has set up sells male children at the age of 16 as stated once in the book, while describing 12 13 year old boys to mistresses These mistresses than initiate the boys with there first sexual experiences and are than given to the ladies of the household to share and use at will The main character is in his 20 s because it has been ten years since he was bought by his mistres [...]

    11. I wavered between a 4 and 6 on this one I think the story was very well written and I really liked the fact that this story focused on the evolution of the main character and his growth in his society World building in this book is excellent, and the actions of the main character make sense in his world I also like the fact that while this book is m m the focus of the story isn t all on their relationship, but on the main character and how he reacts to what is happening around him.I think what h [...]

    12. I was immediately swept into a vibrant, realistic world where women rule and men are slaves The characters are intriguing, the setting is astounding, and the plot is fast paced and believable At it s heart this is a story of true love, with all the requisite passion and heartbreak included In spite of being long for an ebook, I read it over two otherwise busy days and dreamt about it the night in between A wonderful read.

    13. I was torn between 3 4 stars I did genuinely like this book The characters and general setting were well done and interesting.However it did drag a bit in places and the protagonist tended to wallow in angst which kind of annoyed me Also I felt that getting only Maen s POV made other characters seem a little stunted You only see what Maen sees, as he sees it It sort of left a few questions unanswered in the end for me anyway

    14. Received through NetGalley for an honest review Maen has always been a soldier to his Mistress and Queen But he changes when he sees a boy, Dax He will have to fight the conflict of his heart To follow the way he has lived by or his heart.This book contains m f and m m Suggest only for adults.

    15. I never did rate this after I read it the first time, but I still remember how intense it was, so I may be reading it again in the near future.
