Abduction by Varian Krylov


Erotic Nonconsensual Romance

Reviewed by Nannette



What happens when fantasy becomes reality?  Devan Astor is taken to a cabin in the woods and forced to respond, to welcome and to want Conradís touch, as well as  to obey his every sexual command.  When Devan manages to escape, she spends the next several days running and hiding in the woods before she stumbles upon a cabin. Devan takes refuge. She bathes, rests, and eats. She starts to feel a bit safe.  Then the owner of the cabin arrives. Vaughn Doe, lead singer of the band Halcyon, is furious. He thinks Devon is another reporter looking for a story about him. Heís hiding a secret that could destroy him publicly. It has already destroyed him personally. As the days pass, Devan and Vaughn discover many things about themselves and each other. Vaughnís fantasies scare and humiliate him. Devanís desires shame her. When they are forced to experience their cravings will their fantasies become nightmares?

For seven hundred plus pages, Abduction kept me on the edge of my seat.  Rape and forced seduction fill hundreds of pages.  Reading what Vaughn and Devan endure is exhausting on the mind. Devanís fears and desires wage war with her mind and body. Vaughnís fantasies create constant conflict in him. Conrad plays them masterfully, using their fantasies against them. He is a monster with the face of an angel.  I was utterly lost in the intensity of Abduction. It is very hard to read but it was impossible for me to put down. I couldnít stop reading and when I was done I couldnít stop thinking about it. Abduction is frightening, erotic and heartbreaking, but it does ultimately have a happy ending. Although the content is horrifying and brutal, it is also very well written and poignant.  I was completely enthralled and totally overwhelmed by the end. It left me with many mixed emotions. There are happy moments, but they are few and far between. The ending was not exactly what I had hoped for, but it was the one that suited Vaughn and Devan and it gave me the closure I desperately needed.  Abduction is more than a story, itís an experience.
