Reviews of Bloodraven by PL Nunn

HawleyShann reviewed on Jan. 17, 2021

I picked up this book as a recommended read and I’m glad I did. This book is dark and twisted in a beautiful way. The characters are complex, the story is brilliant, and I really wish there was more content of this world to sink my teeth into.

This book had me absolutely hooked from start to finish. I couldn't put it down!! It's INCREDIBLY graphic and gruesome, so reader beware, but the slowly budding relationship between Yhalen and Bloodraven was beautifully woven in amidst all of the violence. The political intrigue was perfect, with multiple characters all varying shades of grey morality presenting an engaging world. The sinister Elvardo especially was a terrifyingly interesting figure, and probably my favourite character. I loved this book, and while it may not be for the faint of heart, reading it was an enriching experience.

I absolutely loved this book! Dark fantasy with a uncommon love story sprouted from enslavement. Very interesting. I hope there will be a second book and if so, soon. Pleaseeeeeee, PL Nunn, write another Bloodraven novel.

Extraordinarily sexy, moving, and over the top. I want more —a sequel; another adventure; anything. After 600+ pages, my only complaint is that there is not another book to continue the saga. Bloodraven is an M/M erotic fantasy; dark and violent with plenty of raw, primal sex. This is the first time I’ve read a book with a non-consensual relationship. Though the Stockholm syndrome is certainly at play, the love that emerges is very real and extremely hot. I am a huge fan of the “enemies to lovers” theme and PL Nunn pulls this off beautifully.

Who is this woman? Where did she come from? Are all her books as good as BloodRaven?

I am grateful for the ability to have read the first 50% of this book before purchase.

It is rare to find an author who can evoke the beautiful, terrible, and sickening all at once. Rarer still one so willing to give their characters free reign.

I am appreciative of the length of this story as well. It is not the normal 4 hour read that one finds when reading gay/romance/kink/etcetera, but a story that was written with time, effort and patience.

Having written a couple of things myself, the editing alone involved must have been tedious at best.(Hint: I despise editing)

My expectation when I bought the remainder of this book was to give it a 3 or 4 star rating. That is no longer the case. I did have a very small complaint about the end, but nothing that most people would even notice. All things considered, I'm going with 5 of 5.

Where can I find more like this?

I’m highly impressed. The author does a fantastic job at not only avoiding overused tropes but also balancing the story and the sex.

What you have here is a High Fantasy novel that isn’t afraid to be graphic, in both the depictions of sex and of torture… but mostly the sex. It’s long, but it doesn’t drag. It’s not perfect (could use more editing), but it’s addicting (f*** the editing). It’s the sort of thing I’ve been wishing more Fantasy novels would do, which is why I’m throwing all the stars at it.

This is an incredible book that hooked me after just a few chapters. It's truly an epic read in length as well as themes, and is well worth the price--though certainly not for the faint-hearted.

The story deals with non-con interspecies slavery between a human (Yhalen) and a half-goblin (Bloodraven), but both of these characters have hidden talents and pasts, and they are both victims and heroes in their own ways. The world-building here is subtle but engrossing with some fascinating explorations of morality, love, heritage, power, and even politics. Highly recommended.
