Our Mission

Thrall of Darkness was founded because there is a shortage of good, quality literature featuring gay protagonists that does not reduce gay characters to stereotypes or dismiss them as secondary characters.


Thrall of Darkness believes in explicit consent and condemns nonconsensual sex. While some stories include nonconsensual touching/sex, it is portrayed negatively and should never be imitated in real life.

Seal of Approval

Every story with our Seal of Approval seeks to challenge the status quo by focusing on gay characters and combining drama, action, and sex into an addicting blend of fun-filled narrative for those over 18.
