2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Staged by Kim Fielding (197-07-24-2016)

A fantastic addition to the Belonging 'Verse! The plot alone turns the pages. Fielding's characters add wonderful depth and emotion, humility and an interesting role reversal. I really wasn't sure it would all work out in the end! I also learned a lot more about this alternate universe, which leaves me wanting more stories.

Once the second-prize winner on My Slave’s Got Talent, Sky Blue has spent the past few years singing at a failing New York nightclub. While Sky has never had control over his fate, his life seems to take a turn for the worse when he’s torn from the familiar comfort of performing and sold to a rich and enigmatic man.

Morgan Wallace takes his newly purchased slave to San Francisco, his intentions unclear. On the one hand, he treats Sky with more kindness than Sky has ever known—treats him like a real person. On the other hand, he shares Sky at parties hosted by his sadistic new friends.

A confused slave is an endangered slave, and Sky isn’t even sure of his master’s real name. Is he Morgan Wallace, wealthy and cruel, or Mackenzie Webster, caring and compassionate? Caught between hope, fear, and an undeniably growing attachment, Sky struggles to untangle which parts are real and which are merely a performance. His future, his heart, and even his life may depend on it.
