This is a thoroughly enjoyable novella.
Set in an omegaverse world that is low technology and contains magic (though we don’t experience that aspect in this book) the novella focuses hugely on the two main characters Roclan and Nyan.
I really liked both characters, and the author managed to include some important personal growth for Roclan. Not easy to achieve in a novella. The pair definitely had intense chemistry and overall this felt fairly consensual, so I wouldn’t classify it as dark. It’s a very good book to either try this as a new author or to sample what the MF Omegaverse worlds have to offer, without falling into the darkness of many other books in the genre.
There were times when I would have liked, in fact needed, to be experiencing the other MC’s point of view. Characters made some important decisions and we only saw those as observers, rather than experiencing those decisions via thoughts and feelings. It led to a feel of tell rather than show at times but that is a typical weakness of novellas, there just isn’t the time to tell a complex story, build character depth and convince us of a forever love.
Compulsion is well written and, as I’ve already said, an enjoyable read. I do recommend it if you’re a fan of this author and if you’re looking for a quick, steamy, low angst omegaverse read.
