Talen knows nothing but cruelty. At the slave labor camp he's at, he and other slaves are beaten down and forced to work for people that Talen calls Cruels. But whereas all the other slaves are broken, Talen refuses to back down. He fights back tooth and claw, and it often gets him into trouble. So much trouble that he gets sent to a vampire named Rune, who's known to train submissives and tame slaves. Rune is most known for his training services in the BDSM community. A submissive goes into his home, he does his thing, and the sub leaves with a new willingness to obey. But lately he's been feeling tired and has been wanting to find a pet of his own to settle down with. So when Talen arrives, he thinks he's found the right one. But will the slave camp give him up so easily?
