Because you're never too old for Faerie Tales...

Halflings born in the human realm can stay if they can pass for human, but a baby with bright red and yellow hair, pointed ears, glowing green eyes, and swirled purple and green nails had to be relocated. With no family in Faerie to claim her, the newborn was auctioned off as a slave.

In Faerie, slaves are property with no rights. The baby is now an adult, and has been given in tribute to The Winter Queen.

Queen Mab has worked hard to make everyone in Faerie fear her, but her new pleasure slave enjoys the kiss of her whip. Can the Dark Queen have a tender side? The Dragon King once loved her, after all, so there has to be more to her than the evil, ruthless queen we've seen so far.

Climb aboard and experience the best and worst the Winter Queen can dish out.

Slave is book one in the Dark(ish) Faerie Tale quadrilogy. The series takes place within the greater Kirstin O'Shea universe, but can be read without being familiar with the other books and series.

Slave is the first of the four tales it is going to take to span the life of a pixie/human child who has been raised to be a pleasure slave because she had no family to claim her. She ends up in the court of The Winter Queen where this story takes place. The author puts us into the head of the Slave so we can understand what she is feeling. Seeing her world through her eyes gives you a different perspective. This story took me to a very different world and I am looking forward to seeing where she goes from here.

Beware of the fae, because they may just steal your soul with a promise. In Slave, Ms. Candace's dark side runs wild and this is just the beginning. There are still three books to follow. Prepare to be aroused and maybe terrified. This story is intense, passionate and sadistic in all the right ways. Full disclosure, I read the original unedited serial version on the mobile app platform, Radish. I loved the serial story which is now split into a lovely quartet. I couldn't figure out how Ms. Blevins could make this story any better. Because the story on Radish is deliciously depraved and filled with sadistic kink. Is this SSC BDSM? Nope. Is this even RACK? Double nope. This is a story based in the fae world with one of the main characters ... the DARK QUEEN. Dark fae are notoriously known as sadistic scary monsters that bring nightmares. Mab is the queen of them all. Her dungeon is no "red room" for a slap and a tickle. There are no safewords in this world. This is BDSM fantasy brought to life with vivid imagery and sexual tension. This story is more than the sexual slavery "little one" suffers at the hands of her various owner. Little one's story slowly unfolds one lash at a time. As Queen Mab puts little one through her paces, a spark ignites and this tale becomes an erotic love story. This revised version adds nuances that enrich the character interactions. Love and devotion emote from the pages as little one cries out in tortured passion. Fleshing out Queen Mab's motives and how she feels about her little one makes me fall a bit more in love with this dark queen. I've been wanting Queen Mab's story for so long. To see how she nurtures her slaves and treats her servants, it is impressive. They fear, respect and love her. Quite honestly, after glimpsing into her life, it is hard to say no to Queen Mab. Her deviant desires translate to excruciatingly agonizing yet sweetly tender for her slaves and servants alike. For those who are submissive, Queen Mab is a drug we crave. Surprisingly, this story is not focused on Queen Mab. She is a dominating figure and yet it is little one who steals the limelight with her graceful suffering and unquestioning obedience. Her submission is impressive. Since this is a world which takes place in a fantasy place, the kink does go to the extreme and little one's ability to take what happens to her may make many a readers cringe. The plot twist in this story leaves a reader wanting more. Looking forward to the next installment and seeing how an already fantastic story gets even better. *I received an advanced copy

THIS is like nothing else out there !!! its a tale from the Fearie but to call it a Fearie Tale is ok if you are Candace Blevins :-p I love when any character falls deep in love, even if its a scary one like Queen Mabe, but still, this one got me filled with question marks, and its a good thing I'm used to Candace plot twists and how she likes her "not-necessary-horizontal-activities", but still this book made me go WTF couple of times, but if you know Candace books, you know she makes up with good plots and her humor. Slave is a first book in a four book series, and let me tell you, I need the next book, like an hour ago !!!!! The fraze "Little one" will never be the same again after this. People you have to read this, its a Candace Fearie Tale at its best, and its not something she dabs into so often.

Wow, that was, that was really, really good! I felt like I was there, with Little One, with the Queen, living in the world with them, feeling what they felt. This wasn't overly and in your face, but a wave, a mood, a fog, that swirled around you and brought you there with the characters. You were in the world, on their journey, and feeling their feelings while they experienced events. You didn't feel the events, but the feelings, that is what makes this world, this story, these characters, stand out and leave a stamp on you This is the story of a slave, and her Queen, and I was right there with them, and loved every second

I'll be honest, I was a little sad when I finished. I was sad because I cannot wait for the next one! Even more so than most of her books, this Quadrilogy can be read as a stand-alone from the rest of the Kirsten O'Shea universe. It follows the story of Little One and her life with her new master the Winter Queen. While we know of the Winter Queen from other books your reading experience will not be hampered without that knowledge. Little One has been a slave her entire life. Some of her masters have been better to and for her than others. Her most recent was not a great fit. Becuase of that he gifted her to the famously cruel Winter Queen. How will Little One deal with the large change? Will the Winter Queen find a favorite new plaything? What will happen if they can no longer be together? Any more and I would give away too much! You just have to read for yourself. This book is hot hot hot! I originally read the story on Radish and was a little nervous to see how it came out in full novel format. It is SO MUCH BETTER! The story, character, and worlds are much more fleshed out and don't worry, all of the good bits are still there. If paranormal BDSM stories are your jam then read this now! All of Blevins books are great and will be right up your alley but this is an amazing entry point.
