What we’re surprised at is the ease with which she dances over genre boundaries. Josiah Foxglove and Marcus Colton find themselves embroiled in finding the solution to several crimes in small town Wyoming, and there is plenty of criminal/investigative action. They also find themselves drawn warily to one another in deeply intimate ways, and there is plenty of sexual/romantic tension between them. In the midst of all this, they’re united by a deep concern for an emotionally challenged teenage girl and the dangerous young man she’s falling for, and there is plenty of subtle fodder for thought along social justice lines contained in the book as well.
Classifying The Eagle and The Fox as one genre or another is difficult, and likely the attempt is a waste of time. Simply buy the book and begin to read, setting aside notions of what kind of story it will be, and allow it to be the story it is instead. Rawlyns isn’t a genre-writer. She doesn’t simply push the boundaries of genre expectations; she runs them over with a tank. She isn’t a romance writer. She isn’t a mystery writer. She isn’t a dark urban fantasy writer. She isn’t a western writer. She transcends genre, blending them with apparently effortless ease. She is, to coin a term, genre-queer, pigeon-holed into none, owning them all.
Nya Rawlins writes with an authenticity that gives voice to her characters, real people of the place. This is literary fiction that gathers elements of many genres but never falls into a pigeon hole of any of them. Her writing is beautiful but never gets in the way of the story she's telling, and the story is about these people dealing with burgeoning affection, maybe love, danger, loss, and fear. In other words, real life, lived by real people. The book is a mystery with plenty of action and danger. It's a slow-build love story that never shies away from erotic exploration, but it is not Romance, nor is it Erotica. It's more.
I found myself savoring the depth and detail of the landscapes she paints, of the land, of the townsfolk, and of the characters' lives, interior and outer. She alternates between the points-of-view of Marcus and Josh and takes the time to develop each fully, taking us on the emotional roller coaster rides they are experiencing as their relationship develops into something that may well heal both their wounds.
This is a highly recommended read from an immensely talented writer. If you love Rawlins' work and haven't read this one, do. If you haven't read from her library, this is a good place to start. You will be happy you did.
