Acquired Possession by Cari Silverwood
Release date: JULY 26th
The night she is taken Emery is reading emails in bed.
Aerthe, another world, the world of the Swathe, the moving cities of the Mekkers.
Blind on arrival and naked.
No one touches her until the Mekkers decide humans aren’t people, and therefore can be bought and traded.
The journey through the portal alters humans, shines them all pretty. Humans glimmer.
Emery’s bright hair and nails will forever mark her as an alien.
Her freedom is gone. Though her sight returns, she becomes a possession of House Oren.
But someone else wants to own her.
The House Master, Mako, a man who uses whips and canes like most people use a knife – daily, with efficiency and casualness.
She vows to never give in.
Banned from marrying. Banned from playing too intimately with the house possessions, Mako holds himself back.
His job is to punish, to control, to keep the House in order.
But when Emery runs and takes with her a most dangerous war machine, one not seen since the Last Days of the War…
Mako is the man they turn to.
To chase her down.
To bring her back, lamed, dead, or mostly alive.
She might, possibly, be in big trouble.
Inspired by the slaveworld Gor series by John Norman.
Warning: This is a dark erotic story. If you don’t understand where dark stories can go, this might not be for you.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The main genre is science fiction with touches of paranormal, however, it does also have elements of dystopian and steampunk. Very much an alternate world type of setting.
The book is also erotic, specifically to dark erotica and BDSM content. I think for most readers the severity of the dark erotica and BDSM content will probably range from light to moderate. Maybe too heavy for some, if erotic punishment & dub/non-con elements are not your cuppa.
I love this world the author built! It engaged my mind from start to finish.
I really enjoyed that not all the facts and rules of this world are shown upfront (no info dump). The author takes the readers on a journey showing this world piece by piece, and the rules of it are slowly unraveled throughout.
The erotic content in the story is very good, and there is some definite on page sexy time. However, to me, the primary focus felt like it was more on the characters and the story being told. Basically, more story than sex (IMO).
Lastly, this book completely works as a standalone and is the first in a new series (not a spinoff). Also, I got the impression that each book in this series will feature a different couple.
