Tribute Trail isn't a bad read, but the authors just don't deliver on the promising set-up. Kherin, a prince and mage, is betrayed and sold into slavery in a foreign land, where he befriends the new ruler of a warrior culture, eventually becoming his lover and teaching him to wield his own gifts. There are lots of threats and dangers, most of which just kind of unravel or are left hanging in the end. People and plots are left half-developed. And if you're looking for hot, sexy moves, you won't find them here. The descriptions of intimacy are very vague.
