Cyborgs need love too! This is a collection of short stories by Ravon Silvius focused on men who are turned into part cyborgs in order to adjust to the new scifi world of the future. Each story is short but still packs a hell of a sexy kick.

A Brief Vacation
The Meaning of Frustration
My favorite story has to be Only Human. Kevin suffered from a terrible injury that left him with Cyborg legs. He can’t get used to them and is getting frustrated. Dimitri is another cyborg that’s there to help him adjust. It is a fabulous story of never giving up and the power of love. This could easily be full length stories but I love how they gave a reader just a glimpse into the authors talent. Overall, this is a great set of shorts.
If you love sexy cyborgs, this collection is a highly recommended read!
Enforcers #5 (Must be read in order)
Author: Ravon Silvius
Genre: Gay, magic, fantasy, romance
TBR Reviewer: Bella Star
Rating: 4 Stars - Recommended Read
Heat: 3/5 - Blush Worthy
Kenneth, war mage, is recovering from his previous torture at home with his troublesome parents and his lover, Thorn. He happens to be Kenneth's enforcer partner and a talentless. But the peace doesn't last long.
This is not a standalone series so I suggest reading the previous books. They were all great so no hardship there. Once again we're swept into this amazing, violent, beautiful world thanks to the author. Thorn and Kenneth are still trying to blend the torn world of the mages and the talentless while dealing with Kenneth's parents. There was tons of action, magic and story. The reason for the 4 star review was actually the sex. It was sexy but there were so many sex scenes and so similar that they became repetitive thus lost my interest. But the story was so wonderful I really suggest you pick up this series!
Recovery is a magical story in an amazing series by a very talented author!
This is book 4 in the Enforces Series. I read book One a while ago but didn’t realize there was more out. I bought book two, loved it and tried book three and loved it even more. When I saw that Book 4 was up for review I quickly snatched it up. Would this book be as good as the first three?
As you can see from the rating this book was so amazing! The world building was so fantastic, I could see each magical glow and the unique towns/cities. Our MC’s Kenneth (Mage) and Thorn (Talentless) are on another adventure as Enforcers. This time they have to deal with the aftermath of their last mission. They both want to find a horrible mage called Alder but it appears there’s more to this problem then just one man. I really loved the magical aspect of this story. The author has such a wonderful way of pulling a reader into the story. I couldn’t put this book down, during the action or the world building or the really hot sex. My only real issue and it’s so tiny it didn’t hurt the rating was the editing. It could have definitely used another more thorough edit. However, that didn’t take away from how amazing Capture was.
This entire series, Enforces by Ravon Silvius is a must read if you like hot m/m action with a fantastic, magical backdrop.
I was so excited when I found out there was a third book in the Enforcers Series by Ravon Silvius. These books must be read in order to fully grasp the wonderful world Silvius creates and the fabulous characters. I highly recommend the first and second book, which I read when they first came out before becoming a reviewer. Even then I liked Silvius’s style and it continues with the third installment of Enforcers.
The First Mission is Mage Kenneth and his lifemate, the talentless thorn, going on their first mission as enforcers. I absolutely love the details in this book. The author does such a fantastic job, you can see what the talentless slums look like and the fancy mage homes. It’s stunning. The story itself is so perfectly plotted. It’s never boring, always interesting and sexy as hell. Thorn suspects the town their investigating, of hurting the talentless. Kenneth and Thorn separate to investigate and all hell
breaks loose. I couldn’t put the book down as we weave through twists, turns and magic.
Enforcers is a talented series of magic and intrigue that should not be missed!
The Exam (Enforcer’s #2) by Ravon Silvius
Genre: Magic, Erotic, Gay, Fantasy
TBR Reviewer: Brutally Honest
Rating: 5 Stars – A Must Read.
Heat: 5 – Orgasmic.
Oh. My. God. I LOVE this series. (Puts on professional hat and clears throat) The Exam is the sequel to Noble Magic, which I loved. We follow Mage Kenneth and Talentless Thorn as they announce their lifemate status and start a series of tests to become enforcers.
Can I give a girly squeak without you looking down at me? This book was phenomenal! Both book in this series were. The characters, Kenneth and Thorn are so well-written it’s like I know them in real
life. They each have their own flaw but trust in each other to survive in each other’s world. I absolutely loved the world building! The author really painted a picture with words of the magic side and the talentless side. The sex was scorching, the author upped the anti in this book. The plot was stunning and again, I can’t say enough good things about this series.
The series, Enforcers by Ravon Silvius, have been flawlessly executed and an honest joy to read. The author took a new approach at magic and I for one am excited to read more!
Noble Magic by Ravon Silvius
Genre: m/m, romance, Magic, adventure
TBR Reviewer: Brutally Honest
Rating: 5 Stars - A Must Read
Heat: 3 - Blush worthy.
I was blown away by this book. The story was wonderfully detailed, perfectly paced, and a slow simmer of heat. The characters were fantastic. Thorn was a talentless who was once attached by a mage and Kenneth is a noble mage with amazing magic abilities. This story is about their romance, finding a lifemate as well as finding out who is trying to kill Kenneth.
The details were spot on. Not too much to bore you but not scant where the reader can’t see the picture the author is painting. This is a world rich with color, magic and imagination. The talentless are not able to deal magic while Mage’s can. After the great war magic won and most Talentless are sent into slums to live. What a story! I could not stop reading, I was to absorbed in the world, invested in the characters. I hear there is a sequel out and I for one, can’t wait to read it!
Noble Magic is so much more than just a great story, it’s an adventure and experience that no one should pass up!
Remembrance by Ravon Silvius
Genre: m/m, science fiction
TBR Reviewer: TBR Reviewer
Rating: 5 Stars - A Must Read!
Heat: 2 Handcuffs - Flirty.
I don’t even know where to start. How do you begin to express the love of a dark and almost magical world such as this? Remembrance will forever be one of my favorite novels. It was so well written. The plot was so intricate and the romance was utterly beautiful.
Aldric is a solider of the war, left behind on a ravaged planet earth because he’s gay. He’s bruised of body and mind. He drifts from town to town aimlessly until he meets Daniel. Daniel is in need of a bodyguard as he tries to record everyone’s life here on the doomed earth so they will never be forgotten.
The characters were so...I’m actually at a loss for words. They were perfectly flawed is the best way to describe them. The world the author created was dark and twisted but so imaginative and real. I was hooked at the beginning and pulled through to the end.
Remembrance is a novel that no one should pass up because it will touch your soul.
Air by Ravon Silvius
Pirate, romance, M/M
TBR Reviewer: Brutally Honest
Nathan is an air mage who has had a hard life. In this world he mourns the loss of his best friend Tom, but that one true friend is not dead.
The beginning with all the explaining about this new magical world was a bit much. It was all sort of thrown at the reader, which made it a tad confusing. Still, underneath that was a very interesting and well thought idea. There were a few, very minor editing issues. Nothing drastic but I thought i’d mention it for those that are a stickler for grammar. There was a bit of an issue with flow. Some parts were so bogged down by useless chatter that it was really hard to sink completely into the book.
Despite that the story is still a solid four stars and very close to five stars! The characters were absolutely fantastic and the plot was unique as well as entertaining. The author did a great job with the action scenes. The relationship that grew between Tom and Nathan was perfection. It was slow but not dragging and because of that their attraction was very solid and sexy.
Air is an imaginative, wild ride that I highly recommend!
M/M, Romance - novel
TBR Reviewer: Amanda
In an unknown future time, earth has been destroyed and the wider galaxy colonized. As some people have re-colonized earth, they have tried to escape the "Distant Rule" that seems to run everywhere else and have been at war ever since, twenty-years. Herman is a cyborg and part of the invading forces who has become mixed up with Blaze, a magician in the earth's army and is starting to doubt everything he has ever believed.
Because everything is shown from Herman's point of view, there are often murky points because his memories have been tampered with as well as his physical modifications. As Herman learns more about the force he fights for, he becomes more confused about which side is right and what he should do. When he finally has to choose a side, it becomes obvious that he must make a decision - and that alone helps him to decide what to do. Once he discovers that he has a choice, he becomes a freer man. He also fights mixed signals from Blaze. One moment he thinks the red-haired magician wants him, the next he thinks he is just a pawn, no longer even a soldier but just a tool. There are a lot of undercurrents in this story, like the issue of free-will and how the cyborgs memories are continously erased to keep them from caring about each other or empathizing with their enemies. Herman fights bias and prejudice from the people that he is helping on one hand, and the lies and manipulations that are all he knows on the other hand.
I admired his character for doing what he felt he should at great cost to himself and against all odds, and I was pleased with the end of the story when it looked as if he and Blaze might have a chance. Blaze himself is not as fully-realized a character as Herman, again because of the way the story is written, but some of his compassion and caring seemed to help in pushing Herman out of his "perfect soldier" mold. In all, I found this an enjoyable story and would recommend it for those who like science-fiction with romance thrown into the mix.
