Jon learns that the captain and first mate have been keeping secrets from him But will the truth tear them apart Yup I m loving this series it s well written, engaging and completely puzzles me as the layers of personality unfolds This trio are certainly a tangled web of desire, kink, loyalty and unresolved trauma Their deep seated love for each other is obvious even though they don t understand it yet let the high seas adventure continue I just feel the need to slow clap it out for Bey Deckard right now, because this book was fucking gorgeous It was getting easier for the captain to see the two boys together like this they offered each other the solace that Baltsaros just wasn t capable of, and their relationship was a much needed bridge for the gap that had always existed, unbeknownst to him, between Tom and himself He decided that he simply needed both of them to feel whole it worked to soothe his possessivenessI just feel the need to slow clap it out for Bey Deckard right now,

his possessiveness somewhat Sweet Jesus this book really knocked my socks off It was beautifully written and had me hooked immediately I barely put the damn thing down You only need so much sleep when you have a book like this waiting for you on your Kindle I loved the first book, Caged Love and Treachery on the High Seas, and I was jumping at the chance to continue series I was completely blown away by this follow up It s quite possible that it was even better than the first, and that s no small feat.This story picks up six weeks after the end of the previous book.Tom, Baltsaros, Jon are back on Baal s Heart and are setting off on a new journey together.The relationship between the three men has not been completely mended after the betrayals of book one, and flashbacks are woven into present day action in order to catch us up on the past few weeks Flashbacks are a tricky thing to master, but I found that they were wonderfully well incorporated into the narrative.Baltsaros The iron fist that Baltsaros led with was tucked into a satin glove lined with the softest fur Men looked up to the captain they praised his fairness and feared his anger They emulated his grace, refinement, and unshakable self confidence they bowed their heads in loyalty and vied for his attention I find it s quite common for readers to choose sides in literary love triangles Personally, I prefer to see a triad work out all the way to the end I was never on Team Tom or Team Baltsaros , but I certainly had my moments of doubt as I read through this story All three of the main characters evolved throughout this book, but the captain was a sight to behold.It was immensely entertaining to watch the struggles Baltsaros went through in this book He is a sociopathic pirate gripped by untold emotional scars, a man who murders for sport, and is driven to absolute madness and here I m grinning like a fool as I witness this character struggle to find his way I m not sure what kind of sadist that makes me The glimpses of gentile affection and near redemption made Baltsaros an evencomplex character It is easy to understand how someone like Jon could find himself so wrapped up in this fascinating pirate.I won t spoil the big moments for you but know that there came a point in this book a conversation between Baltsaros and Jon where I actually yelled at Baltsaros and had to set the book down for a second It takes an awful lot to get me sucked so deeply into a story that I m verbally chastising fictional characters for their behaviorJon Jon Passionate and gentile Jon with his boundless hope that the three of them would find some kind of arrangement Bloody fucking na ve fucking Jon, slurred Tom, shaking his head Jon s character really flourished in this book He s come a long way from the sickly terrified boy who was knocked unconscious and dragged to the deck of a pirate ship nearly a year and a half ago.In the previous book Jon grappled with his intense attraction to Baltsaros he could see the dangerous monster lurking behind the captain s eyes, but he allowed himself to be seduced anyway Jon struggled with his relationship, with the violence inherent in piracy, and ultimately he had to figure out how to reconcile his connection to Baltsaros with his growing attraction for the first mate.In this book, Jon s character is embracing a thread of violence which seems to have woven its way into his psyche His time as a pirate has changed the young man into something quite imposing when the moment calls for it And oh man, Jon has some seriously bad ass moments of glory and gore in this story TomHe sees the good in me, Da, plain as day That s somethin worth fightin for Maybe even somethin worth dyin for His words sounded strangely choked Oh Tom Brutish, ruthless, deadly, yet affable Tom Such a complicated character and such a joy to read There are hidden depths to this man which become quite clear as this story progresses.For the majority of the first book in this series, Tom was the odd man out in this complicated relationship Now the three men have accepted and embraced their feelings well, sexually at least there are still plenty of warring emotions when you get past all the delicious sweaty moments spent in the captains quartersJon exudes an honest tenderness which had been missing between the captain and TomBaltsaros insists that his growing fondness for young Jon is a weakness which he must fight against.Tom clearly sees the benefit of being loved by such a warm and kind creature, yet craves the captain s rough handlingOur three favorite pirates are attempting to work out this complicated dynamic between them while facing an endless list of physical and mental setbacks Their journey to unknown lands through an uncharted path lends a fantastic parallel to their relationships with each other.Tom has kept the captain s secrets for ages, and has lied to cover up the older man sdepraved tendencies He has lied to Jon And due to Jon s empathetic gift, he has spotted every lie and has chosen to look the other way.Secrets are revealed the depths of which threaten to undo all they ve worked towardMeanwhile, outside forces are conspiring to tear these men apartThis story is dark and twisty in the most wonderful way Sex,Blood,Action,Secrets,Danger,Sacrifice,Jealousy,Betrayal,Madness,Romance,Adventure, Heart pounding suspense I won t spoil the new land for you I think it is best for the reader to experience that adventure right along side the main characters However, I will say that the imagery is glorious richly detailed and incredibly unsettlingI found myself chatting with author Jae T Jaggart about this series and how deeply satisfying it is to read a historical novel which embraces detail All too often we come across books which are littlethan contemporary stories wrapped in period costuming So not the case with these books I slip so easily into the landscape Bey Deckard has created, that he makes it look easy It s fucking impressive This series is beautifully detailed, entirely original, and I m completely enthralled with every single aspect.And I m off to read the next book right this second because I can t get enough of these characters Book 2 of a great series Pirates Love Adventure I am condemned to die I laugh For if my fates are kindly sped, My doomer from his own ship s staffPerhaps I ll hang instead And if I fall, why what is life For lost I gave it then as due, When from slavery s yoke in strife A rover I withdrew.Before you go on, take notice this volume and this review are a bloody mess and a crazed mix.I said in book 1 I expected to seeof Tom and I did indeed Whereas in the first book his POV was absent, Book 2 of a great series Pirates Love Adventure I am condemned to die I laugh For if my fates are kindly sped, My doomer from his own ship s staffPerhaps I ll hang instead And if I fall, why what is life For lost I gave it then as due, When from slavery s yoke in strife A rover I withdrew.Before you go on, take notice this volume and this review are a bloody mess and a crazed mix.I said in book 1 I expected to seeof Tom and I did indeed Whereas in the first book his POV was absent, his presence was never missing He takes up a space no one else can occupy His fierce vulnerability and longing for being loved are so addictive and essential for this love story to work He is the one who sacrifices every time and asks for nothing in return, but that doesn t mean he would reject any kind of affection He cherishes every kind of affection he can receive and also every kind of pain if he s in the correct person s hands He is the one who submits at every command and the one who enjoys it immensely I just can t get enough of him.Baltsaros seems drown in his madness, or the beast in himself he is afraid of Tom knows but Jon hasn t walked that road yet and will get some unpleasant surprises Secrets are not over yet Trust is hard to build and very easy to break Obsession is guiding Baltsaros s path, but with time this feeling looks suspiciouslyandlike hope His past remains a mystery and evidences show that deep memories hold the origin of it all There are some demons to face.Nothing is left of that shy boy who was kidnapped from his stepfather s care Jon has tasted the flavor of freedom and lust in the form of the two impetuous pirates he loves He is not being dragged, but he takes the reins of his own fate and fights back for what he wants The wolf pup is becoming a real wolf Confident, loyal, and lethal when the occasion requires it When he is needed, he is effective.In this story the three of them decide to go into the unknown and, at first, I didn t know why Yes, it could be the conquest of the unknown, the search of knowledge or the boredom that pushes them to look for adventures and richness It s not as if this hadn t happened before Once upon a time, boats used to sail close to the land, because beyond that monsters and the end of the world awaited Once upon a time, some madmen decided to cross the big ocean looking for new routes that didn t appear in their maps And once upon a time, said madmen discovered new civilizations based on the rule of blood and fear and gods who demanded said blood constantly, causing the outrages of the newcomers.This tale doesn t ring strange for me, we even have the alter ego of the Aztecs and Mayas here They even have too much gold and a lack of other useful metals that could only be found in the world beyond At least they have cows, which ismeat than Amerindian Natives ever had I seriously didn t think I d find so many similarities to certain tribes in this story but I can t deny there is a special and dangerous shine in the prospect of meeting someone whose actions you can t predict I loved the world building, it s perturbing and perverse and primitive.A world Baltsaros feels disturbingly attracted to A world Tom can t bear due to his past as a slave A world where Jon feels disgusted and unsettled A world nobody will be left indifferent at Some scenes are a little creepy and some scenes are blatantly so.World building apart, I liked the time leaps and the flashbacks When something happens that makes no sense, there is a missing scene from a close or far past a promise, a revelation, a sex scene that means a littlethan it seems It sounds tiring putting it that way but in fact it s incredibly agile, at it shows hidden moments at certain conflicts that give a whole meaning at the perfect time I also appreciated the little cartoons that divide each POV depending on the place the character is at each moment a boat, a pyramid, a castle.Baltsaros s madness or latent madness takes an important role in this series and here it s explored evenHe doesn t think he s capable of love but he wants to become worth of said love This devotion is heart breaking at moments because it requires a sacrifice The heartless bastard has a heart after all But this heart as scars, very deep scars that haven t healed and are still bleeding And finding a cure can lead tosuffering and the reawakening of old wounds lengthily forgotten or buried Is it worth the pain I mentioned it about Caged but I repeat nobody is a third wheel in this love story Every one of them breathe an essential air The story is complete because the three of them give all of themselves for this to work There is no feeling of someone loving someonethan the other, or someone wanting to exclude the other one They all want this to function and they hurt and heal each other constantly Because they haven t found the balance yet, but they are close It s heart warming tale that brings a smile now and then and some heat, too when the kinks are explored and exploited, when the playfulness brings its maximum profit and when the comfort finds the long needed solace Mr Deckard Strikes again 4.5 TeamTom StarsSome of what I m about to say comes with the caveat that this is book two of a trilogy and I m not clairvoyant.Sacrificed is as swashbuckling and feverishly paced as Caged We pick up where Caged left off with Tom trying to sort out his feelings about Bal and Jon, to a lesser extent He s still grappling with being tossed aside by Bal but he can t ignore his growing feelings for Jon It s no secret that Tom is my favorite and the fact that we get loads Mr Deckard Strikes again 4.5 TeamTom StarsSome of what I m about to say comes with the caveat that this is book two of a trilogy and I m not clairvoyant.Sacrificed is as swashbuckling and feverishly paced as Caged We pick up where Caged left off with Tom trying to sort out his feelings about Bal and Jon, to a lesser extent He s still grappling with being tossed aside by Bal but he can t ignore his growing feelings for Jon It s no secret that Tom is my favorite and the fact that we get loads of Tom time made Sacrificed, in many ways,pleasurable than Caged.If I start talking about the kinky times we could be here for days, so let s just say they were amazeballs and leave it at that.Tom and Jon s relationship development was what I zeroed in on They re the least established of the triad and it evolves delightfully Tom is possessive and protective and Jon responds to that positively He gives of himself in ways Bal seems incapable of which bonds them closely together, though Bal is still very much top dog I m not sure if the symbolism is intentional or not but I find it touching that the triad concept pervades this series from the number of books to the pyramid where their relationship was cemented in this installment They are still a bit rough around the edges, but they made significant strides in Sacrificed and their commitment to one another is undeniable.Of the three, Tom is the most sane, in my opinion The other two might be smarter, wiser orcunning but Tom is streetwise I d follow him into a war zone any day of the week and twice on Sundays It is entirely possible I m biased, but Tom s characterization seems the most realized I loved most that he s always warm That detail alone brings with it so much information There were times I could literally visual him no shoes, no shirt, tan, a bit windblown, smoking his cheroot, being sexy as all get out Yeah gulp Also, he makes me laugh especially when he gets riled up which is always a win Bloody fuckin cocksuckin bloody hells am I fuckin glad to see yer fuckin face Say fuck onetime C mon, please Sorry, I went off on a Tom fangirl tangent there.The Sacrificed adventure begins going through The Devil s Isles on their way to Erem ia Balor We re going there for reasons only Bal is privy to Along the way we pick up three fishermen who have a profound impact on the pirates The Balorians turn out to be a strange cultish society with an egomaniacal emperor hellbent on subjecting others to his brilliance , especially Bal Poor Bal Their society is lopsided with slaves outnumbering free men and maintained by barbaric rituals They decide to infiltrate this society and in order to do that Tom has to pretend to be a slave which actually turned out to be therapeutic I don t want to go too much into the plot You should experience that for yourselves I will say, there didn t seem to be as many plot twists as there were in Caged, but it was no less exciting and all three men get tested in different ways.Questionable ethics come with the pirate territory, and I understand trying to assimilate and all, but Jon is evolving in unsettling ways I m left wondering if some of his behavior can be tied to the ship itself and or if it explains why his empath skills seem to now be haphazard at best What s to become of Bal and his transformation still remains to be seen, all of which leaves me frothing at the mouth for book three Plus, Tom Can t get enough of Tom Fingers crossed for a single tail.Needless to say if you liked book one, book two is a must read If you enjoy fantasy, swashbuckling adventure, pirates and or kink this entire series is for you An ARC was provided in exchange for my honest opinion.
