  • Other: death of secondary character in backstory

Detailed Trigger Warnings

Spoilers, ahoy.

  • Descriptions of being trapped in an underground, claustrophobic space in chapters 1 – 5. 
  • Discussions of poverty, sexual violence perpetrated by the state, and inequality. Throughout, but particularly in chapter 9 and 19.  
  • Descriptions of hunting birds and animals in chapters 3, 8, 13, 18, and 20.
  • Descriptions of the death of a secondary character in chapters 3, 8, 13, 18, and 20. 
  • Serious illness of a child, mainly in chapter 21. 
  • Love scenes in chapters 13, 17, and 18, including fellatio, cunnilingus, and mild dominance play (M/f). 
  • The hero really was a rake and has an illegitimate daughter.
  • Politics. (I think these days politics justifies a trigger warning.) Including underhand political machinations.
