9781934129272: Black Sun (Yaoi)

  • Gerun Fortress, under the command of Officer Leonard de Limbourg, is attacked by the prestigious general Jemaru Jan of the Middle Eastern Empire. With no hope of winning, Leonard offers his head in exchange for the safety of any survivors left in the fortress. But Jemaru isn’t into executions, and torturing prisoners of war is much more interesting. Forced to sleep with a man that is his enemy, Leonard's feelings of shame overtake his mind, but lust overtakes his body...

Review:

I don't know that much about the Crusades. Oh, through my love of history, I may know more than the average person on the street, but this really isn't my favorite time period to study. I think my lack of knowledge helped me in enjoying this release because this is the Crusades as seen through a BL filter, so it s twisted beyond recognition.

There's Leonard, a monastic knight, charged with protecting Gerun fortress. They're fighting against the infidel Turks lead by General Jamal Jan. The monastic knights are vastly outnumbered their defeat and destruction is guaranteed. Well, that is until Leonard gets an idea of how to save the villagers in the fortress. He gives himself over to Jan. Okay, prisoner of war. Got it. Makes sense. They could ransom him off for a boatload of money.

Except, that Jan has other things in store for Leonard. This is where it gets interesting. Jan orders Leonard to strip, not just down to his tighty-whites, but completely bare-ass naked. He then proceeds to bring Leonard off in front of all his troops, then takes him on the floor of the fortress.

Jan then brings Leonard back to Turkey with him to account for his actions to the sultan. The sultan isn't too pleased with Jan s actions, but leaves Leonard to make his own choice. He can either be treated as a true prisoner of war or he can become Jan's sex toy.

The whole thing is well done and very well drawn, but very silly. In fact, my favorite chapter was the last chapter and told from the point of view of Cerberus, a black panther, who is a pet of the sultan. Anything told from a cat s point of view is instant hilarity to me. It just sums up how silly the whole thing is.

I didn't think I was going to be able to say this, but I really am looking forward to the next book to see what happens to these characters. I say try this one just don't expect anything that even remotely resembles historical accuracy in it.

801 released this one without the dust jacket, though. While I m kind of sad to see it go, as it added a nice touch to the books, if they need to do it to save money and keep quality smut coming out to us, then I'm all for it. --Boys Next Door
