A novel by Taerie Bryant. This story has a bit more grit than the usual fare, and a strong element of adventure and suspense. There's plenty of romance and the characters remain true to form with a realistic infusion of sex. [1]
In this novel, Jacob, the equivalent of 17, a virtually mute telepath, is as fully animal within as Vincent is outwardly. The story centers on Jacob's capture Above and rescue. Some sex, not graphic. [2]
This zine is one novel-length story which mainly focuses on Vincent and Catherine's son, Jacob. Unique but grim story line follows Vincent's struggle to come to terms with his grief and his beautiful, but animal-like son. Diana and Vincent do enter into a sexual relationship over a decade after Catherine's death. Devin also appears. Very wide borders. [3]
A romantic and adventurous story about Vincent and Catherine's unusual child, Jacob, who though blest by his mother's legacy of beauty is cursed by the soul of a beast. Vincent and the people Below are forced to keep Jacob captive as he grows to manhood in the world Below, but when he finally escapes, can they save him from the inhumanity of captivity Above? [4]
