Blurb: To say the Sadou are a secret club would be an understatement. For the Sadou are to the sexual cults what the Illuminati are to New World Order. Secretive. Wealthy. Powerful. Generations old and filled to the brim with more dark taboos than most humans can imagine.
Master Clayton not only grew up in the Order, he is one of the more revered members. And he is about to partake in a selection that will give him a young man of his choosing to be his sex slave boy forever.
Twenty-three are handed over to the selection, handpicked from those who qualify for such honours and asked to be among the entries. Only their identity is kept from Clayton, and as he interviews and explores them all, one of them happens to remind him of his own son, Nathanael.
Some taboos aren’t just dark; they’re too damn tempting.
Warning: Subject matter is devised around pseudo-incest, but with intentions to deceive you into thinking it’s the real thing.
Review: Dark, Taboo, Banned from Amazon – sign me up! This story pretty much delivers everything it states in the blurb (and warnings). It is about a secret Order that revolves around sex, or, more specifically, BDSM and sex slaves. The members are elite high society and have been involved in the Order for generations.
Master Clayton is widowed, his son is grown and out of college, and he has achieved a level in the Order where he is given the honor of selecting his lifetime sex slave(boy). He has 23 applicants to choose from and does so through a selection process that takes place during two ceremonial type events. The applicants’ identities are all kept hidden until the final decision has been made.
In the meantime, we are shown through flashbacks time Master Clayton has spent with his son, who is not biologically his son, but with whom he grew up in a father/son relationship. You can see where this is going, so I won’t spoiler any more than I already have.
I enjoyed the writing style of this short story. However, due to its length, we don’t get very much information about the more interesting aspects, such as the history or makeup of the Order, which I was really curious about. I also wanted to know more about the applicants; how they became one of the 23, why they chose to basically give up their lives for it, etc. What we do get is a very sex-oriented, often steamy porn with plot. There are many different scenes, but none of them go on to the point that they’re too much. If you’re looking for a taboo-edged afternoon quickie, I definitely recommend you pick this one up. I will definitely be looking for more from Mr. Knox in the future.
Overall Impression: I liked it
