Mind Fuck There are no bad guys or good guys. There are only better guys and worse guys. One of the worse guys is Val Toreth. In a world in which torture is a legitimate part of the investigative process, he works for the Investigation and Interrogation Division, where his colleagues can be more dangerous than the criminals he investigates.

The most interesting part of a mystery has always been the world it makes you discover, from the Judge Tan series to Cadfael to Rumpole to Sam Spade. This is an edgy, complex, riveting whodunit, set in a bureaucratic near-future European Union dystopia which is both scary and believable. Inside the political, bureaucratic and corporate rivalries is a clever romance between two anti-heroes of sorts, both ferociously intelligent, both flawed. I defy any reader to guess the outcome or the guilty party. The book is plotty, convoluted, occasionally very funny - I can't imagine the author hasn't some personal experience of working for a large bureaucracy - and very well written. Much recommended. (I plan to look up the rest of the series instantly: damn you Kindle, there goes my Easter week-end.)

great characters, interesting plot...and hot! 2 novembre 2007
Par readster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
These are interesting characters--complicated and compelling despite (or because of?) their considerable flaws. The book is very well plotted, blending sci-fi, mystery, and romance seamlessly and compellingly. The development of the relationship between the two main characters is handled deftly and is one of the book's strongest points. Sex scenes are well written, explicit, and also never fail to advance the plot. A fun read!

Thoroughly Engrossing Read 13 décembre 2007
Par tektite - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The universe Manna creates is vividly detailed and always painstakingly human. The mystery plots are excellent, and the sex sequences are sizzling. Also, she writes some of the most phenomenal character dynamics I've ever read between her two lead men, with a fascinating and perpetually ongoing power play taking place between them. I very highly recommend this book!

one of the best things I ever read 24 mars 2008
Par Clare London - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Whether you categorise this under scifi or urban fantasy or erotica or gay - because of the relationship between the two main characters - it remains one of the best books I have ever read. I'm so pleased to see it in print. The world Manna builds is uncompromising and often harsh, but also littered with human frailty and passion and humor and confusion and determination. There is an excellent cast of other characters, who prove to be far more than subsidiary, with a refreshing balance of men and women. The plot is good and just challenging enough to balance the relationship development. The sex is hot beyond heat, though in my opinion that's because of the connection the reader makes with the characters of Toreth and Kier. It's far more complex than just a gay, erotic affair. Anyway, it's not often I try to read more slowly as a book continues because I'm depressed at getting to the end! Read it if you like strong, flawed men who are desperately and passionately drawn to each other, and a mature plot.

Astonishing, sexy, smart...utterly devious 11 juillet 2013
Par Erin Satie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Astonishing, wonderful, un-put-downable original online fic that is also, alas, decidedly not-for-everyone. A series of novels (with a great many interludes between) that I devoured one by one over the past few days, m/m, featuring the most depressingly realistic dystopian future I have yet to encounter in fiction and an unforgettable couple.

The author phrases it best when she describes her own work: "The inspiration for the Administration series of stories is a maxim of Chris Boucher, script editor of Blakes 7--There are no bad guys. There are no good guys. There are only better guys, and worse guys. One of the worse guys is Val Toreth. In a world where torture is a legitimate part of the investigative process, he works for the Investigation and Interrogation Division. One of the better guys is Keir Warrick, a corporate director. His small corporation, SimTech, is developing a 'sim' system which places users in a fully-immersive virtual reality."

There are a lot of truly brilliant things about this series. If you ask me, the brilliance of the relationship lies in this:

Toreth is an emotionally retarded, amoral and violent man...who is really good at following rules. He fundamentally doesn't understand the concept of morality, but deeply understands that he survives and functions in society by following rules.

Warrick is a brilliant, sensitive, thoughtful masochist...who is really good at setting boundaries.

The borderline-personality, sexually voracious, violent alpha personality is everywhere. Toreth is a truly extreme version. Fantastically attractive, confident, charming in a sociopathic way, an indiscriminate tomcat, and, oh yes, he tortures people for a living.

Which, while I'm on the subject, is another one of the truly brilliant things about the Administration series. Francis doesn't gloss over Toreth's workaday life. In fact, we spend a lot of time at the Investigation and Interrogations Division, and the most horrifying thing about it is the dull, workaday atmosphere. Paperwork to fill out, budgets to argue over, underlings to manage, damage waivers to process...did you catch that last one? Even the torture is bureaucratic, with strict guidelines about how much pain can be applied in any given situation, greenlit by a separate department for checks and balances.

It's arguable whether Toreth is really a sadist. Flexibly dominant, yes. But he doesn't seem to get a sexual charge from his 'enhanced interrogations'. He takes pride in a job well done. In efficiency, thoroughness, guaranteeing a swift guilty verdict. But there's no sign of any emotional peaks or valleys, no revulsion or pleasure, no matter how broken his victims are.

His victims are not really people to him. They are things, or boxes on a to-do list.

By contrast, Toreth's relationship with Warrick is intensely emotional. Vulnerable, passionate, exciting, sweet, tense...it's an emotional roller coaster. With Warrick, Toreth comes alive. The author holds the parallel between Toreth in the colorless, tiled underground cells of I&I and the technicolor perfection of Warrick's virtual reality, between Toreth's detached torture by-the-books and many of the exact same acts, performed in bed with Warrick, and suddenly drenched in emotion.

This book is only the first novel in the series, and it charts the very beginning of Warrick and Toreth's relationship. Subsequent stories hit every single possible weak point that ought to drive the two of them apart, the stress points in their relationship. If these two survive as a couple, it's because they've been tested and tested again, and ended up stronger for it every time.

The novels, which put Toreth and Warrick in frightful, life-or-death situations, mix really well with the interludes, which tend to focus on smaller, more domestic dramas. It's much easier to believe that Toreth is useful in a James Bond/Clockwork-Orange style pinch, suave and lethal and saving the day in his messed-up way. It's much harder for him, and for us, to admit that he wants to sleep in the same bed with Warrick even if they don't have sex, or to make even the mildest declaration of affection.

And Francis spends a lot of time showing us how the two people closest to Toreth work out their relationship with him. How they respond to various expressions of concern from loved ones--Warrick's sister, for example, lobbies hard for him to dump Toreth--how plain tolerant they have to be, how rewarding it ultimately is.

Really, if any of this sounds even vaguely interesting, give it a try. It's really good.

Excellent fiction, excellent erotica 30 mai 2008
Par zillah975 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Manna's writing is extremely polished and her stories are compellingly plotted. Her characterizations are deft, and while there are "no bad guys or good guys," only better and worse guys, she makes all of her characters believable, and you come to care deeply about them.

When I first read this, I thought I was reading for the erotica -- and certainly the erotica is scorching, especially if you like yours with some kink and BDSM. But as I got deeper into the story, I realized I was reading for the story itself; the erotica had become secondary to a very well-crafted novel. I literally could not put this book down. I was reading it at long stoplights.

Incidentally, while some gay fiction or slash fiction tends to demonize women, or at least betray a smidge of misogyny, this does not, as far as I could tell. There are, as with the men, better and worse women, but none of them come off any worse than the men do, and there are several women characters who are important to the story and important in their own right as characters, not just as a way to move the plot along.

Highly recommended as science fiction, mystery/thriller, and erotica.
