This is one of Dare's better stories. I agree with criticisms about the characterization (or lack thereof) of Ori and wish more time had been spent with him. More detailed world building could have made this something great instead of just good. Having said that, this story does exactly what it sets out to do: entertain, turn you on, make you feel something, make BDSM more mainstream and let you escape; it does all this while being unique and interesting. It's just a fairytale after all.
