Locked-In, A BDSM Novel by Jack Norman
Trauma-victim Helena Winter is a young and beautiful 'Sleeping Beauty', lying prone and unable to communicate as she's cared for in a private hospital ward. Utterly alone with her locked-in reality, no one has a clue what is going on inside her head. While lying in her bed, she's sexually ravaged by Tomas, who, through a rent in the fabric of space and time, transports Helena to a new world, a world as tangible and real as the one she leaves behind. There, he transfers her to a thug, and she wanders through a nightmarish 'yellow-brick road' adventure peopled with allies and enemies, exploring the fabulous outer reaches of her own submissive sexuality.
In the dungeons of the submissive house, she is inducted and trained as the abject sexual submissive "Lana". She's pierced, ringed, and then presented at one of the great fairs in her new world. She's taken to the home of Homere Homere, a wealthy merchant, where her secretarial skills are put to use, along with her intimate duties as a sex submissive. Later she is given to one of Homere's powerful patrons and customers, Darrick, and is taken to his desert palace. Jealousies abound in Darrick's world and among his other submissives. Soon Lana is left to in the care of the cruel Kadin Salih, Darrick's first wife. She hacks off Lana's hair and condemns her to a lingering death, toiling in a pit pushing the shaft of a water wheel, and denied food and nutrition. Will this be her end?
When Helena appears to re-awaken in her hospital bed, just as Tomas finishes fucking her, he suddenly dissolves into the ether. She appears to have recovered, and yet, the cast of people she now encounters are the same ones she encountered in her sexual adventures. Her dreams are wracked with visions of Tomas, of submissive cells, whips and chains, and she cannot let go of the wild experiences of alternative life. Inner and outer worlds begin to meld into one until the astonishing conclusion of this unique novel, when Helena (Lana) finally understands where she truly belongs.
