Alicia Cameron’s alternative reality slave world series, Demoted.
The superior lead. The inferior are DEMOTED.
Cashiel and Sascha aren’t revolutionaries. Cashiel just wants to use his privilege to make the world a better place. Sacha just wants to save his brother from being Demoted. Unfortunately, they’re both trapped within the system.
In the past, lesser people rose above their natural station, and greater persons found themselves stifled under the incompetent leadership of their inferiors. Today, the Miller System conditions the Demoted to serve; persons otherwise lost are given purpose, and placed under the ownership and guidance of responsible citizens.
Cashiel’s mother invented the Miller System, and trying to prove that the Demoted should be treated humanely sets him against his mother and all her political power. Sascha succeeded in saving his brother from the system, but only by taking his place and being made into a brothel slave.
It isn’t exactly love at first sight when Cashiel buys Sascha. If they can work together, though, they might be able to bring down a system of institutionalized abuse, and find some happiness for themselves.
- Subjection by Alicia Cameron
In a world where intellect and achievement are valued above all else, a young man makes a life-altering decision to save his brother from a life of slavery. Thrown into a harsh, unyielding world where slaves are treated as less than animals, Sascha struggles to come to terms with everything he knows being ripped away from him, but a life of success could never prepare him for his life as one of the Demoted. Sinking lower and lower, Sascha begins to lose hope, but the whim of a mysterious, wealthy man has the potential to change all that.
Cashiel has a dark history that he guards carefully. Between family and business and politics, he rarely has time for a slave, much less a lover. But when he sees a young man who reminds him of the very history he is trying to escape, he makes an impulse decision that he’s not sure whether to regret or not. The slave could expose everything, or he could be the most valuable asset that Cashiel has ever acquired.
Cashiel and Sascha share desires, hopes, and a home. Each man is limited by status, hindered by history, and desperate to succeed. The question is, will that be enough? (M/M)

A slave is never safe from harm, nor is an outcast family member. In the end, are Sascha and Cash strong enough to face the challenges, or will they be torn apart forever? (M/M)
