Inhaltsangabe zu „Duck! (Avian Shifters) (Volume 1)“ von Kim Dare

Raised among humans, Ori Jones only discovered he was an avian shifter six months ago. Unable to complete a full shift until he reaches his avian maturity, he still can’t be sure of his exact species. But with species comes rank, and rank is everything to the avians. When a partial shift allows the elders to announce that they believe Ori to be a rather ugly little duckling, he drops straight to the bottom rung of their hierarchy. Life isn’t easy for Ori until he comes to the attention of a high ranking hawk shifter. Then the only question is, is Ori really a duck—and what will his new master think when the truth eventually comes out? Please Note: This is the second edition of this title. It has been tweaked and re-edited but the plot has not been changed.

A loving, mentorly D/s relationship, a cool world with bird shifters and the most adorable sub MC ever.

    Ori is a young avian shifter. Since he grew up in foster care he doesn't know what species he is, and won't know for sure until he can shift at his 21st birthday. And for avians, species means rank. The elders assume he's a duckling, one of the lowest species, so he has to take orders from everyone and gets abused constantly until Raynard, a hawk, sees the cruelty and recruits the boy for his own, new, household.Soon Ori goes from servant to Raynards submissive and he flourish in the role. But when it is time for Ori's first shift not everything goes as expected.This is an interesting world Dare has created. Usually I'm not a fan of fantasy with stiff caste systems like this one, but it kinda works, since the author doesn't really try to explain or justify it. Pretty much all the worldbuilding is like "That's how it is, deal with it". It's not the main focus anyway, which is good, since I'm sure there are a bunch of logical flaws in it.That doesn't matter so much, since I just adore the hell out of the couple here. Ori is really shy and insecure since he grew up in foster care, never fit in with the humans and after he found out he was a bird shifter, he just got pushed into the lowest rank, constantly abused and made sport of. He just wants to please everyone so much is kinda painful to watch.Raynard is a lit aloof, but he's very steadfast, patient and understanding and he's trying his best to make Ori more comfortable in his skin. It is really cute and heart warming how Ori slowly learns to find his own place. He doesn't have to learn how to submit, he's already got that down pat, but how to trust Raynard and to stop worrying. It is awesome how strong and secure Ori becomes then, and I think the author manages to really capture what a D/s relationship should mean and can be.
