2.5 starsJust not tickling me. Epic scale with three separate plot lines. While I liked the concept of two gentle souls tormented, lost, and then found again the execution was awkward. Radical, frequent point of view shifts and info dumps made it less engaging. Book ends abruptly, with unresolved issues, so it reads more like an installment than a stand alone book. Moderate BDSM elements of humiliation and bound to be a hit with enema and medical practices devotees.
