Series Dark Soul #2
Spoiler Free - Just quotes.
Fear, isolation, longing. The gripping first scene is tender and mental and erotic as hell.
"I'll never forget turning you into a lover."
I think the term "God-father" takes on a whole new meaning when Voinov applies it. Gianbattista fills that roll for Silvio carnally, mentally and spiritually. Their profane relationship is quite intriguing and a bit wrenching. Do you want to see reparation or separation? And, who do you really feel for here? Intriguing.
"the strength and steadiness in that body -- that was exactly what Stefano craved now. That strength, that barely contained dark energy in Silvio".
Hints and teases and glimpses. Yes, this is still building into a powerfully driven, intense ride of a series. Voinov's command of character building drives my need for more. Plus, there is an underlying current of manipulation and violence that has yet to come clear.
Voinov's writing fascinates me.
“Me, I'm going to write ass-kicking trans* characters. I think I might end up writing not a single thing that is "pure" by some people's standards. Just because, and because I can.”
― Aleksandr Voinov
