For Isabel, art was her saving grace and redemption from a life of abuse and cruel words. Having escaped her father's iron fist and making her way in a strange city, she finds herself alone, going from empty relationship to unfulfilling relationship. Bored with conventional sex, creativity becomes the outlet for her secret desires. Introverted, self-critical yet spirited, she yearns for love, acceptance and control. For Dylan, the answer to his control issues and sadistic fantasies was waiting for him within the walls of the Dark Asylum in the form of an acronym - BDSM. His redemption from his overwhelming guilt and sadness over the loss of his parents was discovering the escapism of art. Feeling undeserving of happiness, he delves into the art world and BDSM with voracious passion. As he concentrates on mastering his knowledge in all things art, he also sets about honing his Dominant skills while training new submissives, never wanting anything more than brief physical encounters. This prequel explores Dylan and Isa's pasts and the people who crossed their paths and became integral parts of their lives. This is the journey that led them to the fated Studio 210 gallery show where Dylan first caught glimpse of the erotic paintings that spoke to him, leading him to find the love of his life, his soul mate and his own little artist with a hidden dominant streak - Mistress Isabel. The very same night that forever changed Isabel's future, leading her to the man who would capture her heart, Dominate her world, and ultimately give her complete control.

Even though we got little glimpses for Isa's and Dylan's pasts, we can go deeper and meaner in this last book, where both of them are finding themselves, all in dark places, in obscure ones, and lonely ones. Tortured souls are meant to be found some comfort on each other. Just that they don't now yet. If you expect a novel with a lot and meaningless sex, this book isn't for you. If you expect a book with depths and emotions, I strongly suggest you to go for it! I really enjoyed how Ms. Dominguez's prelude to this book, which has not meant to be read before, but after the 3 books.

    This is a novella filled with answers for those that are already Ella Dominguez fans and a great starter for those that just found her. Isa grabbed my heart in The Art of D/s and hasn't let go. With similar personal struggles, I loved reading about her strength to pack up and make a new life, a better life, where she is able to be in control and enjoy her art. It's not without challenges, but fate is working some magic! Dylan is an interesting character, with many hard life experiences behind him.

It's not without challenges, but fate is working some magic! Dylan is an interesting character, with many hard life experiences behind him. He's been burned and in some ways abandoned. Although he know what's missing from his life, he keeps his armor on and lives in a lackluster world until fate steps in to change his plans. My favorite quotes from this novella - "What are you afraid of, Mr. Young?" "Knowing your fears means knowing your limits." I highly recommend this book as a beginning, or ending, to The Art of D/s. This book was provided to me by the author with a request for an honest opinion.

    The Art of Redemption was a great prequel to Isabel and Dylan’s lives before they crossed paths in the future which would be told in the next book, The Art of Submission. I only despise the fact that they both thought they were beyond redemption and saving from their own kind of demons to the point of thinking that they are unlovable and undeserving. Nevertheless, I’m only hoping for better things to happen to them from now on. Their happiness is also my happiness.

PERFECT FIVE STARS. CHEERS.

    The Art of Domination is a continuation from the Art of Submission which is a lovely walk into the path of BDSM from an experienced Dominant to an unknowing submissive, the journey of frustration, finding oneself, love, acceptance, trust and of course submission.

    This felt like a coming of age story for me, you get to experience Dylan and Isa growing up. You finally understand why they have the issues they have, everything becomes clear. I love Dylan and Isa, I know they are fictional characters, but Ella Dominiguez writes so well these two seem real to me. This is a must read if you have read The Art of the D/s series, and if you haven't, well what are you waiting for?

    I have been sooooooo eager for this one. Dylan and Isa are my all time favorite book couple. The Art of Redemption is a quick read and gives us the final puzzle piece to the story. We get to see how life was for Dylan and Isa before they meet and where they were emotionally. How Dylan became the successful man he is and Isa's struggle to be independent and free of her evil father. I could never get enough of these two. I have been sooooooo eager for this one.

    Great glimpse on both Dylan & Isa's life prior to them meeting. This was a quick read and well worth it. I just wish I read this first prior to reading the series. Oh well, it was still great regardless. Great glimpse on both Dylan & Isa's life prior to them meeting. This was a quick read and well worth it.

    Disappointing In this story Dylan found his way into BDSM where Keiran trained him as a dom but when he takes a permanent sub he gets burned. Isabel comes from a abusive father and escapes her life only to be used by some pretty horrible selfish men. The two main character don't even meet in this book. It is all about there journey towards BDSM. I just found it a bit boring especially as they never actually meet.

    I really enjoyed reading this short story and continuation to Dylan and Isa's story, from the Art of Becoming Us. This is the first story I have read by Ella, and I like the way she writes about her characters and their stories. "Dylan, just like in life, there is no failing in BDSM. There is only learning from your mistakes and making right what you've wronged." "Her ability to put down on canvas what was in her mind was the only redeeming quality she had gained from the cruel man who was her fat I really enjoyed reading this short story and continuation to Dylan and Isa's story, from the Art of Becoming Us.

    Well written with a few editing issues. This is not a stand-alone story. This is a nice supplement to The Art of D/s and even Becoming Sir, providing more details on how the two key characters and his best friend came to be where and what they are. Strongly recommended for fans of the series.
