Gay Fantasy Worth Reading

Amazon Customer
The list author says: "It was brought to my attention that not everyone has a kindle. And since some of the books on my previous list aren't available on Nook or other eReaders, I've started this list of good gay fantasy for those among us who not only like their books with Plot, but who are still brave enough to risk paper cuts by reading things on paper.

Just please be careful of the sharp edges."

"Plot, politics, evolving characters, an intricate world with cultural details, an interesting and original magic system--this book has it all, and I HIGHLY recommend it. Although, the dialogue is distractingly modern for the setting. you get used to it, and it doesn't detract from the story."
Smoke and Shadows (The Smoke Trilogy, Book 1)

"I cannot recommend this series highly enough. It's an urban fantasy setting (vampires, wizards, straight-to-video TV shows) with a quiet gay romance, strong characters and solid mysteries to solve."
The Fire's Stone (Daw science fiction)

"This is another one by Tanya Huff. It's one of her first books, so it's a bit simpler in style, but very much worth it if you can get your hands on it."
Luck in the Shadows (Nightrunner, Vol. 1)

"Everyone loves this series, and it's a gay fantasy classic. The characters are on the cliche side, and the plot is wanting, but it's still pretty good."

"This one is a good read. It's a master/slave setting--but not the traumatic kind with things you can't mention in polite company. Setting, magic, characters, world, details; all are good. There's nothing wrong with the plot, either, but it feels like it should be an overarching plot, and it's not; the vignettes don't lead up to anything big."

"I'm a total sucker for fairy tales, and these are awesome. They walk the line between adorable and erotic, so I wouldn't read them to kids unless you've read them over first. Although I don't know who would read gay fairy tales to kids. The coolest parents ever, maybe?"
Prisoner

"A solid and well-written novel that manages to include several romances without sacrificing the Plot to them. All the usual good stuff--innovative magic, multi-dimensional characters, hole-less plot, fairly original world and cultures--plus a few unique twists and turns along the way."

"I love Josh Lanyon, even if his plot resolutions seem too simple at times. His characters, settings and realistic mysteries totally make up for anything else I might grumble about, and then some."

"This books suffers from an uninteresting summary--but very little else. It's another urban fantasy, so there's some real-world stuff, like construction and movies, and there are fantasy creatures like demons and kitsune...and then there's a whole boat load of new and unique things that I can't talk about because I don't want to spoil it. Just trust me when I say it's amazing."

"A lovely book with an innovative magic system...does it feel like I'm always saying that? because I think I am; it a mark of good fantasy. Anyway, this is a new take on the 'magic spoken in different language' concept, and it's pretty neat. It's also polyamory, for those of us who like such things."
