Orion’s Way by DC Juris
As the owner of a private dungeon for vampires, Malagan, an ancient himself, does not tolerate those that break the rules. When he is alerted by his dungeon monitors that a sub has safeworded and his Master continues the scene, Malagan steps in. When he was told who the sub was Malagan knew he would have a problem on his hands. This male submissive used to belong to one of his dungeon monitors, Orion, who happens to be on duty.
Orion lost Xavier to Clay when he couldn’t dominate him like he needed. Finding him beaten and bloody, Orion’s blood bond is awakened and he is willing to fight to get him back. Malagan helps Orion recover Xavier, but soon history repeats itself. As Orion wallows in his doubt, Malagan explains it very cleary….either you are a Master or a feeder. Allowing Orion to dominate him, Malagan awakens the Master.
Orion’s Way is a deliciously quick read. I could keep reading about Malagan and Orion. Their scene together is one of submission and the need to regain control. Malagan’s willingness to kneel before Orion to show him that he can Master Xavier is emotional. For a Master to kneel, to submit and teach is a powerful act to witness. I loved the dynamics of these two together. The give and take of between teacher and student. DC is an amazing author of the M/M bond.
