4 Wet Panties and Lots of Squirming in the Seat
Writhing, contorting forms of tightly bound subs got to me. I was awash with arousal and giddy with feels. The first chapter already got me squirming - it was both disturbing and highly stimulating.
This book is certainly not for the prudish or the faint-of-heart. Like Steelwhisper said, it was meant for serious kinksters.
Brethren is an engaging extreme S&M fantasy for dominants with a sadistic streak. The writing adopts a third-person narrative mode and it was mainly written from the POV of the Top although you would get occasional faint whispers of the Sub's POV as well.
The story is focused upon sexual objectification. Subs are reduced to human sex toy status. Some are voluntary, some are not. You will also encounter breathplay, extreme body-modification, sexual torment, strict claustrophobic bondage that is heavy on latex and sensory deprivation. This is only a couple of examples of the depravities found within its pages. Google the word, Gord Comics or best still go to the author's blog if you wanna get a feel of what this book is all about. (YES, you will need to be a real kinkster to click that link). *Smug smile* I know you want to click it.
Needless to say, I like this book. It was a wonderfully titillating book to me. I am not sure if it would work as well for those who are sexually submissive since it does lack the POV of the bottom. I couldn't be sure simply because I am not one myself.
I would love to read the rest of the books in this series.
The above examples of latex bondage is the milder version of what is in Brethren.

Brethren, book one
The world has moved on. The stuff of fantasy has become reality but most important of all, there is now absolute truth. Advances in technology mean citizens are no longer able to lie to the law givers. Those dispensing justice can do so without fear of punishing the innocent. Society is no longer prepared to keep or tolerate those who choose to do harm.
And so the Brethren have arisen.
They offer the world another way, a natural justice. They keep the criminals contained and restrained whilst indulging their fetishes and desires. Criminals are presented to the Brethren to live out their days owned and degraded. Within the city's and county's given over to the elite of the Brethren, normality is subjective. Segregated from the rest of society they indulge without prejudice or interference.
