In "The House at the End of the Street", the author gives us the tale of 4 young teens that fall under the lure of total control, and how they deal with it.
The sex in this story takes a little bit to get to, but once it starts, it comes hard and fast. From the early exploration of their individual desires to the all out attempts to show each other up, the sex runs through almost all the things that 2 boys and 2 girls could get into. There is a heavy bit of mind control and forced submission, with each character being made to do things they have no desire for. While some of the sex is light, much of it is dark and mean spirited in nature. But it all fits perfectly. The desired sex is actually very hot, and even some of the non-consentual stuff that initially happens isn't meant in a hugely mean-spirited way.
The plot is a real piece of work, and I mean that in a good way. Deviously woven into the sex tale is a brilliant story. All 4 kids learn something about themselves, about the others, and about life. The need for control duels with their inner feelings that something is wrong. I found the back story to be more interesting than the sex in many ways.
Technically, there weren't any flaws that jumped out at me.
I really enjoyed this story. It started out with a nice backround into each character's mindset, and then delved into their fantasies. It quickly moved to each kid getting "even" with how another treated them when they had no control. The horror of each new act caused a dangerous game of one upsmanship to start, and the kids find themselves not just abusing each others, but starting on their families.
As the author noted in the story blurb, the youngest sex partner is a 13yr old, in this case a young girl. Readers have been safely warned against any possible "squick" that could cause. That's pretty much the lower edge for me, so I was able to get by without a problem.
To be honest, the sex was really hot at first, but by the end, it was more a case of "grudge fucks", and the author did a great job of making a lot of it not really appeal to the reader. This is important, because most of the acts weren't appealing to the participants, with even the person in control not doing it for pleasure, but revenge. So, the stroke is all in the middle section, before things start to get nasty.
Another great story by A Strange Geek!
"The House at the End of the Stree" (THES) is a Tales-from-the-crypt type story.
It is primarily a character-driven story with a setting (town in Haven Universe) that the author uses to add suspense and drama to the story. The stroke scenes are icing to the cake.
In addition, this story seems to be setting the stage for something major. This was alluded to at the end of the THES but the reader will just have to wait until the next stories in the series come out!
