Title: Vacant (an Empathy novella)
Author: Ker Dukey
Genre: Dark Erotica
Release Date: March 30, 2015
When two dark souls connect the draw is too dominant to ignore and the obsession of owning the only color to brighten my dark world too unrelenting to not obey. I left her alone so she could live a normal life but I was weak, how can she live a normal life after so much sinister chaos invaded her world, summoning her own darkness to the surface?
The depraved devil that is me now had an anchor, someone to venture into the black abyss with.
Normal wasn’t a path ever set for Cereus.
She was her Father’s daughter but my soul mate, even if I disputed ever owning one.
She was struggling without me in her life, the vacant ache inside her leaking out. I can’t not go to her, the need is too strong and like with all of my urges I embrace it.
I hope by now you have read this twisted, dark series to understand this twisted, dark novella. Ryan and Cereus are uncle and niece who have found each other after family has tried to keep them apart.
Believe, me, had I been in Cereus' parents shoes, I would have done the same thing, however, Ryan being the person he is, found her, got to know her, and for some unknown reason, even to himself, found a connection to one lone person on this earth, and she became "his" to care for and protect.
Until this series, I had never read Ker Dukey's writings, but I had heard all good things about her dark, twisted world, and of that world I wasn't let down. She can get you into that world and you want to read until the story is finished. I had only one spacial problem in this book that wasn't really explained. Now, I do realize we weren't always dealing with reality, so please know I am not talking in those instances, but on a whole, the spacial problem was minor and this last and final book just added the last twisted, dark aspect of this whole series.
Ker has her own way of writing that minimizes what isn't important to the story and brings out what is important to keep the story from dragging and that is very important to a story such as this, because, believe me, you aren't always sure when you begin reading a passage, what is real and what is in the head of the character...yes, it is a very psychologically twisted book, so be prepared for when Ryan and Cereus play with your head...or is that Ker? ;)
This book and series isn't for the faint of heart. You need to psych yourself up for this type of read. But, if you can stand a dark and twisted world, do give this book, this series, a try. Then your next few reads need to be something loving and sweet. Just Sayin'...
