This picked up right where Volume One ended It was chuck full of action and suspense However, the plot did get a little drawn out and far fetched towards the middle I love all these characters, so I m ignoring that part Vincent and Aburon are still my favorite The connection between them is so freakin intense They better be in the next book One of the most touching moments was when Reiji view spoiler and Charon got together at the end I loved seeing Reiji s vulnerability He desperately needed to feel special and cared for, and Charon gave him that hide spoiler

To use Reiji s words, one of the boys at the House of SilenceIt s quite the story It s got action, intrigue, and a lot of people doing a lot of stupid, ridiculously brave things to try to save the dayNonetheless, the second part of HoS The House at war felt a bit random at times and wordy Also, the plot seriously lost momentum somewhere in between all the running from one place to the next And let s be honest Much like Vol 1, this book was saved by the very nicely done sex scenes And Vincent and Aburon s scenes were by far the best for me so intense and deliciously wicked and beautifully writtenWhen a slave submitted through his own free will, fully cognizant both of what he was offering and what he was getting in return, that was when the magic truly happened It was the choice to submit that made all the difference He never fooled himself into thinking Vincent could be solely his But for this moment right here, right now this beautiful stray cat of a spirit had consented to curl up on his lap, to bow to his will and accept what he had to offer itI earmarked all their juicy encounters, so I can go back when necessary I m really glad I had both Volumes to read because I would have hated to have to wait for this one since Volume 1 ended on a cliff hanger.I was surprised at how different the two volumes seemed though Vol 1 was sexy and introduced you to all the main characters We got partial back stories, enough to make things mysterious Towards the end we get the conflict and our main characters in peril.Vol 2 had muchplot and action than sex, although there is plenty of sex Since books don t traditionally come with warnings the way fanfiction does, I ll warn about it here there is a graphic rape scene and a second, graphic dub non con scene If you ever wonder what the difference is between rape and non con, this book has a pretty good example.Vol 2 felt like an end to their story but I know there is another volume being edited so I look forward to seeing how the story continues There is also a recently released prequel which is the interviews of some of the main characters when they came to the House of Silence I ll be reading that soon. Volume 2 offers a good continuation of Volume 1, with continued erotica, gratuitous violence, and sex.However, the plot really develops in this book and everything comes together None of the characters really seems that intricate, except the House of Silence itself It is a lovely world and a fun combination of caste and modernity But the one dimensional characters would stop it working as a non magical epic fantasy novel Breaking up the plot with lots of hot sex and violence makes it a fun read as an erotic novel I think if the characters had beendifferentiated,consistent in their personalities, this book would have been very good with less emphasis on the details of sex and rapes The idea of the plot is quite clever As a sex book, it pushes boundaries with its violence and lack of traditional relationships. This is the follow up to the first book and takes off exactly where it left off This book switched gears from the first and turns intoof an action suspense book as they try to keep Vincent from the bad guys with mixed results The sex in this one takes a darker turn with alotnon consent and all out rape that just didn t appeal to me The end was some what of a shock and there were some nice fuzzy feelings but I just had a hard time switching from thelaid back erotic first book to the action darker themes in this one.
