Concubine was a nice read. I enjoyed Jill Knowles writing style a great deal considering we were reading from Keal's point of view. When I chose to read it I thought people were being overly critical of kaels submission but no. He did flip easily like a pancake. If there had been more of a fight it would have played out better in my eyes. No, I don't think we needed beatings and whatnot but a little less give in the beginning would have helped. I loved the sexual freedom that was created in this world.
