Bonds of Silver Bonds of Gold is set in a time and place where countries are still divided into different baronies and ruled by barons. Slavery is not abolished and the secret magic of alchemy can influence people’s lives greatly. Also, humans as we know them do not exist. Instead, the people we encounter in this story are anthropomorphic animals. We follow Stannis on his journey he started by selling himself into slavery, a journey that is not without problems.
This book is definitely not for the faint-hearted, as the events that take place in it are quite extreme. I had no real expectations aside from the questions that arose from reading the blurb. I personally feel that someone with sexual appetites that point in the direction of BDSM and S&M will greatly enjoy this book. People who are more vanilla will probably be shocked by the events that take place in this story.
The characters in the book are really enjoyable. You’ve got those you want to love, those you want to learn more about, and those you want to punch in the face. If an author manages to make me feel this way, I know it’s a good one.
I’m not quite sure if I’d pick up another book by Tracer in this genre, but others may enjoy it more than I did.
