Intricate and balanced 17. März 2009
Von S. Foley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This is easily the best of Derr's better works.

The characters are developed so well that you find yourself anticipating their reactions toward the end of the book, much like old friends. It is a relief, also, to have multi-dimensional protagonists that can tackle problems without angsting for pages on "how shall I ever go on?"--a rarity in fiction these days, and even more so for gay fiction.

What the other reviewers have characterized as a lack of "sexuality", on the other hand, I felt was considerate, reasonable, and much more realistic than most. The clues for the romantic entanglement are there, and it is nice to see them hinted at rather than thrown in one's face. After all, this is the story of a budding relationship rather than a ten-year anniversary. It's always disappointing to see two characters fall in love and start consummation within ten pages of meeting each other, and thankfully that doesn't happen here.

While the sentences can be a little terse in a few areas, the writing quality is still excellent. Perhaps the author is more used to online writing (we can handle a few large paragraphs, honest!) but I'll chalk this up to a difference in writing style. It's still a very polished work that won't distract you with bad editing, leaps of faith, or disjointed continuity.

Overall, it's a lovely and believable world, and this customer hopes that Ms. Derr revisits it soon. If I were to make a request beyond a sequel, it would be to have a copy in hardback.

Love it! 20. Juni 2009
Von Louise Li - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Megan Derr is perfect for those who like their slash sweet and satisfying. 'Prisoner' is a tad darker than her usual fare, but also probably her best published work so far. The world building is amazing. There's definite cultural differences between the three countries- when was the last time that was done properly? And it serves to further explain the characters and their interactions. One of my favorite parts was the Krian tradition of naming their swords - I know, WTH, right? Except they name it after the person they love the most, so if/when they are slain in battle they won't die alone. Take THAT, Romeo and Juliet.

The two main characters are an odd match, and neither pulls any punches with the mutual antagonism ( at first Dieter seems like a first class jerk, but when his back story came out you get to understand why he is how he is). Their getting together may seem a bit abrupt, but after the second and third reading you begin to catch hints you've missed. Overall, a very satisfying read.

There's a sequel in the works, though it's not available for print yet. It promises to be just as awesome.

Prisoner Book Review 31. März 2011
Von Erin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
For any readers who have yet to be introduced to Megan Derr, I recommend immediately visiting her website maderr.com. I first read Megan back in high school, and was fortunate enough to witness the incredible development of "Prisoner" in her weekly chapter updates on her livejournal page. I actually copy and pasted the entire book onto my hard drive in case it ever became unavailable, which it did.

This is without a doubt my favorite book. I am completely serious. I think about this book every few weeks, maybe every week. I read this book every 6 months at least. Despite having a free version of this book, I BOUGHT IT IN PAPER BACK ANYWAY.

Allow me to explain (cross your fingers it is briefly) why I read one book 2-10 times a year.

The story. The beautiful, chilling, gut wrenching story that depicts an epic moment in the history of three nations. I feel, in a lot of fantasy books, huge changes and events happen but kind of get in the way of the characters or vice versa. Not in this book. I felt as if I was witnessing the most important part in a continents history. Most books don't make me feel privileged to read them. "Prisoner" absolutely does.

The characters. I cannot describe how much I love this characters. All I can say is that I bought the "sequel" to this book (entitled "Bound" and taking place many many many years later) for ANY sliver of information about Beraht, Dieter, Iah, Sol, Matthias, Esta, etc. Megan makes these characters not only tangible...she makes you want to reach out, grab them, and say "Thank you so much." I don't know why I want to thank them. I don't know at all. It feels a little strange to want to thank characters in a book.

The language. There are not many writer who can write like Megan Derr. There just aren't. Something about her writing, her ability to capture and convey characters, just tugs at readers. Her novels are addictive, her short stories even more so. She has the ability to create intriguing and breathtaking scenes in a sentence. Now, there are absolutely typos in this book. I won't pretend that there aren't. If that is something that bothers you, than it will bother you every 5 chapters or so. While infrequent, they are there.

But somehow I can't bring myself to care.

I almost feel like I am an inadequate source of information when it comes to "Prisoner." I think I love it a little too much.

All I can tell any potential readers is that this is MY BOOK. Not in a weird possessive way. I mean this is my go to book. Bad break up? Grab this book. Long week? Grab this book. Successful and productive week? Grab this book. Bored? Grab this book. Snowy weather? Grab this book. Captured by aliens? Grab this book. Found 12 dollars in the street? GO BUY THIS BOOK. If it is unavailable in paperback go to lessthanthreepress.com and buy the ebook. It is worth it. If you disagree with me feel free to comment, but you aren't going to change my mind.

Awesome book! (Spoilerish) 9. August 2012
Von Nikyta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Prisoner takes place in three different locations and is told by at least seven different people. Also, let me forewarn you, unless you read this in pdf (or paperback or maybe kindle), you're going to get confused with some parts. The reason I say this is because when I converted mine, it took out words in italics, breaks between POV changes, stuff like that. Another thing you should know, Prisoner is most definitely not a traditional romance. Yes, Dieter and Beraht end up together in the end but in no way do you even get a hint of a romance between them until a few chapters toward the end of the story. But that just gives this book more of an appeal to me.

A lot of stuff happens in Prisoner and could be a little overwhelming to some because you get detailed descriptions on three different cultures. I happen to absolutely love this book, and have read it three times, for a couple of reasons.

First, I love the fantasy aspect of the book (fantasy junkie, that's me!). You have the different world vibe with a magical feeling to it, with completely different cultures and I love that. This book also pushes every button I have when it comes to m/m. It has a little cruelty/abuse, a hostage/revenge situation, Stockholm syndrome, an opposites attract theme, some action, no smexing, and best of all an HEA. *sigh*

Now, I say cruelty/abuse lightly because it's not as if Dieter beats Beraht at every chance, only when Beraht won't shut up and pisses Dieter off too much but the bickering between the two is kind of cute and while the abuse may last the whole story, it's sporadic, so it in no way dominates the book.

What I liked most about the story, though, was the little oddities like the Salharan obsession with names. They have a saying they live by: `Names are power. Power of life. Power of death. Do not give a name lightly. Do not take a name lightly. Do not share a name lightly. Do not speak a name lightly.' To me, this gives the story more of uniqueness to it because of those little details. I also liked the Krian obsession with swords. They name their swords after the ones they love because they know they will die and when they do, they'll die with the person they love beside them.

To me, it's unbelievable cute because Dieter was the most infamous person in Kria and people feared him but he didn't have a name for his sword. Until one day, when he's training some Illussors and they ask him what the name of his sword is, he says `bright'. Beraht means `bright' in Krian. Awwwww, isn't that sweet?. Hehe.

So, to make a long story short. This is an awesome book. I'm hoping there's a sequel, if not of Beraht and Dieter then set in the same world (which I think there is one). Some people might not like it for many reasons but my suggestion is to just try it. I loved it, some other people have loved it and you never know, you might love it, too.

Two Genres Combine 3. Juni 2008
Von Jolena - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
In this novel by Derr: Political Intrigue and Romance.

Prisoner is an attention grabbing tale of a world at war. The nations Derr builds and the wars they fight force the reader to pick a side and cheer for a hero they may not trust implicitly.

But it is also a tale of friendship and romance. Of looking past first impressions and letting go of old grudges.

Prisoner is a good choice for any reader, and certainly one of Derr's best works to date.
