    One thought on “Wings”

    1. I love her stories. This is the second one that really transported me into storyland and held me captive. Fair warning, dubious consent borders on non-consent and the whole (very riveting) plot is driven by Stockholm Syndrome emotional responses. I know some people are having a negative reaction to the first sex scenese between Vanyae and Anyar, however, I felt it was in line with the plot and characterization for this FANTASY story. I love this authors writing style. Can't wait for the next boo [...]

    2. The writing was really good and kept me reading. (view spoiler)[I Hated the relationship between the two M/C's if you could call it that. It was strictly Master slave where the Master cared nothing for the slave and the slave had no choice but to submit and obey or they would torture his commander and rape him any way. I posted quotes and most of the reasons i hate this in my comments on this thread if you want to look. might be some spoilers there though (hide spoiler)]Basically there was nothi [...]

    3. Isn't that Anne Cain cover gorgeous? I could look at it for hours.How you view this book is going to depend very much on your views about dubious consent. The story involves young soldier, Anyar, who is captured and taken as a sexual slave to the prince, Vanyae. There are several sex scenes in the book which depict Anyar's body enjoying the experience, but in his mind he is being taken against his will. It certainly treads a very fine line between rape and dub con, so fine in fact, that even I w [...]

    4. This was a beautiful love story in my opinion. Two races, the Melanians and the Nazarians, have been at war for centuries. In an unconventional effort to stop the hostilities, the crown prince of the Nazarians, Vanyae, abducts the heir to the Melanian throne, Tanyan, and his love interest Anyar. Tanyan is held by the king of Nazar and treated well. The young, handsome Anyar is given to Prince Vanyae as a slave. The story flows extremely well with a good plot. I was very impressed by the way the [...]

    5. 3.5 starsFor most of the story the writing is very well done. In my opinion (or perhaps these are just my feelings towards the master/slave sub-genre), this story needed an extra one hundred pages right in the middle. There is a period of about two months skipped plus the beginning of the turn-about in both characters feelings/desires/world-view that left out a lot of the emotional turmoil and the scenes that showed this change, which were instead told in a few pages. The change took me by surpr [...]

    6. Not romantic; just creepy.To author: If you want me to believe that a man can fall in love with the person that abducted and repeatedly raped him, you can't be lazy and skip through the story. You can't just recite their changed feelings, you need to show it happening.

    7. Well, some times I feel the desire to dive into something dark, dub-con for example(in a strictly fantasy setting) and this story did satisfy my desire. What I liked the most was the fantasy element of the wings and what I think they symbolize, from personality, character's mood and emotions to bigger symbols such as freedom and core of existence. The wings are not just for show and in my opinion are the best element of this fantasy world.Many parts of the story are very well-written but regretf [...]

    8. It’s been a little while since I finished this book and the story still lingers in my head. That deserves a bonus star.I can very well imagine this to be a legend told amongst the Nazarians and Melanians alike. It is a very thought-provoking story about……being at the wrong place at the wrong time…an innocent falling prey to war and cruel intentions…something beautiful crushed by destiny…how the hunter falls for his prey…how something beautiful can evolve from a cruel and selfish ac [...]

    9. Oh, I definitely loved this book the writing style is melodic and the subject, while it may seem harsh at times, has a strong underlying thread of attraction and love. Vanyae shows it first in it's fledgling stages - the strong want to take, to claim, to protect and possess, and gradually Anyar wakes to it as well.Not all relationships start out pretty and cute. Sometimes we have to wake up a little to what we need and then realize what we want isn't exactly what we had thought it to be in the [...]

    10. I did like this story, the characters the whole of it, but it lacked interaction by means of conversation. Great story plot behind it, but what I would have liked in this book rather than reading that the characters in the story spent time talking about a topic I would have wanted to read the actual exchange of those words, what they were saying to each other. It's like this: like watching one of those black & white old films where you see the actions but the words are muted.

    11. 3.5 stars. I was worried for a while that the HEA would be just a disguised Stockholm Syndrome, but my concern was unfounded. Whew. I do wish the author delved deeper into the emotional development between the MCs, however, I still enjoyed the overall story and the ending did not feel contrived.

    12. Although this book technically doesn’t have anything to do with the author’s previous book, Gaven, the setting, characters, and plot are very similar. The writing is obviously reminiscent of the previous book and those that liked the first book should like this one. A few have commented on the dubious consent scenes that are present, but I found them pretty similar to the first book and wasn’t too bothered. The plot is based on the classic theme of captive falling in love with their captor [...]

    13. 4.5 starsThis book is wonderfully written. I thoroughly enjoy the style, tone and pace that J.C. Owens uses to tell a story. This book is not for the romantically faint of heart however. It has a very strong plot driven mostly through a Stockholm Syndrome relationship that builds between Anyar after he is kidnapped by Vanyae. Vanyae does pretty much everything right to force Anyar to depend on him for his safety and security while imprisoned in the enemy city. While learning to rely on Vanyae, A [...]

    14. 2.5 from me. While the writing is great, I didn't enjoy the story. It read like the tragic loss of a could-have-been love story between a soldier and his commander, but all is lost when they are captured by the enemy, a truly barbaric race by comparison of what is revealed of the soldier and commander's culture, which is not much. Though judging by their horrified reaction to a castrated and de-winged slave, they don't treat their prisoners of war with such cruelty. The commander is treated as a [...]

    15. Under certain circumstances and in rare moods I will pick up a dub-con/non-con 'romance'. Romance is the key word. I have to see a relationship forming even if it starts out far from it. This one did this. The author took the time with drawing her characters and providing a back and forth narration so I had access to their thoughts. I really liked both characters. What also drew me was the creative world building of this fantasy story based on human-like people with wings. There are two people g [...]

    16. Dear me, now I feel bad for giving one star to all other books; in comparison to 'Wings' they can be considered masterpieces. It was such a trainwreck of a story I actually read it to the end (well, it was short) because I couldn't believe anything could be this unredeemingly bad. Well, it turned out it could.

    17. Hmm as a psychologist I've always been fascinated by Stockholm Syndrome; as a consensual kinkster I've never consciously correlated it with D/s. Still I enjoyed Wings. Perhaps I over-analyzed it's subtle social commentary on war and race/ethnicity *shrug*. Owens in a few pages pulls you into a world that is all too easy to imagine. I instantly adored Anyar and I bet you might too.

    18. Oct. 5, 2017: I happened to revisit this book’s review only to discover I never left one. Only a rating. After reading my comments, I realized that I was on the cusp of major surgery and on a heck of a lot of pain killers. No wonder! Guess I’ll have to go back and reread it someday.Reread Feb 22, 2018: A nice little story marred by rape half way in and a ridiculous amount of sex.

    19. 3.5 stars.Surprisingly sweet. Would have bumped it up to 4 stars, but toward the ending the plot fell a bit apart.

    20. So I really liked the story but Stockholm Syndrome anyone? The beginning was fairly brutal and their relationship was a solid slave/master dynamic so I'm still having a hard time believing the love here. Sure Vanyae was eventually nice to Anyar and I do believe he loved him but I'm having trouble with the reverse. Anyar wasn't ever given a choice. I don't know. I was riveted the entire time so that has to count for something.

    21. Without doubt I have a kink for winged men, I don’t know maybe it’s like a phallic symbol, more beautiful and big the wings are and more beautiful and bit the… well, it’s not necessary to continue. Anyway, joke aside, I really have a special eye everytime I see a picture of an angel, and if the angel has also male feature, it’s even better: the fragility of the wings against the masculinity of the body is something that really draws me. And so is for a story, gives me wings and you mak [...]

    22. I was rereading one of my all-time favorite MM books; ‘The Emperor’s Wolf’ by J.C. Owens and decided I was in the mood to read another by this author, so I gave this one a try. Having just read the other book right before this, I noticed right off the bat there were a lot of similarities in the beginning. The circumstances of capture, the soft bed and chains were all the same. But the dynamic was different with this one and in the end I don’t think I liked it as much. The beginning was i [...]

    23. Ok, I'll admit it. I love wingfic.There--that confession wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be! Now you know that my review might be a bit prejudiced.As far as feathers go, this book hit all the right buttons for me. J.C. Owen's descriptions of the winged characters are beautiful, as is the intriguing world these two races inhabit. (I wish Owens had fleshed out that world a bit more, but that's tough to do in a novella.)One of the winged races practices slavery, and most of the book revolves aroun [...]

    24. 2.5 stars.I have liked the Gaven series by this author a lot, but this book didn't really worked for me. Gaven's world building was rich and fascinating from the start; in this book there are two peoples at war and the only special thing about them is that they have wings, in all the other aspects the setting was dry. The reason of the kidnapping of Anyar and his commander is feeble and the connection between the two is severed in a very casual way, Anyar seems to forget his commander and his fe [...]

    25. More. That's really all I can think about at the end of this book. The storyline between Vanyae and Anyar let me just wanting more. I'm actually really surprised that this book is 136 pages. I think that has to do more with the spacing and wonky formatting than an actual 130 page book. The few brief times that the author actually takes the time to explore their relationship (especially once they "fall in love" is really sweet - but she glosses over so much of their "relationship" building that i [...]

    26. Rating overviewWriting: ★★★★★Story: ★★★★★Characters: ★★★★(★)Overall: ★★★★★ (4.83)~~~What a marvellous story! I am simply in awe - two men kidnapped, one of them possessed and subsequently loved, the one who shall hold the fate of two countries as well as the fate of his true love between his wings. This is a beautifully written fairytale that explores the debts of love, devotion, dominance and submission in ways that I have rarely had the pleasure of exper [...]

    27. Okay, I really enjoyed WINGS but the longer I thought about it the more questions I had. Where there female Winged creatures? What was punishments for smaller wrongs? What was the war about anyway? If they were all males how could one not know about male sex acts? I could go on because I really enjoyed this short novel and I wanted Owens to fill in all the holes. When I finish a book I want to feel full and totally satisfied like after a good meal. After thinking for a month or four I'm bothered [...]

    28. I have read several stories about how the captive is falling in love with the captor -- and while Stockholm Syndrome might not be a good reason for romance but it might work when treated carefully. I have also read stories about that make me believe in the premise of Master/slave to fall with one anotherBut this, oh, I'm so struggling with the plot of this story. Again, the writing style is good -- but the situation of Anyar's kidnapping and how he ends up falling in love with Vanyae feels wrong [...]

    29. This is definitely a 5-star book. Beautifully written, the story is about Anyar, a winged-soldier that is kidnapped and reduced to sex-slave by the enemy. The story plot is sometimes completely unexpected and this is something I really appreciate in a book.If I really had to find a weakness in the book, I think it is rather short. There are many things that I'm still wondering about and that will find no answer. The story is very much focused on Anyar and Vanyar, but you realise it only when you [...]
