MMy Thoughts and Review:
Why did people stop worshipping the Greek and Roman gods? Why did they pass into myth? How about the Norse, Egyptian, and Celtic deities of old? I remember a Christian Pastor once saying that Satan's greatest victories aren't found in people believing in him, but when people stop believing in God. I had completely forgotten about that til I read this story. It made me ponder the pantheons of ancient times.
Are those gods and goddesses still there, waiting for us? Have they disappeared into the ethos because of our unbelief? Did they ever exist at all? Just some things for you to ponder.
This story was a dark, erotic tale that I enjoyed very much. I will admit the first few pages of chapter one (after the prologue) confused me a bit, until the story began to unfold more. I don't want to give too much away, because this is one to be experienced individually, not hand fed or given away through reviews.
The Story is done at a steady pace, like a heart beat. Even the scenes where your own heart speeds up, the pace stays the same. Like a long snake winding its way through tall grass searching out prey, the plot isn't rushed, neither is the ending. However, I will say, yes it ends with an HEA, although the writers of old romances are writhing in torment in the afterlife. Bwahahahaaa... So we suckers for sap get our happily moment, and the author even gives a nicely gift wrapped epilogue too.
The feel was very "American Horror Story Season 1" meets "Wicker Man" the Christopher Lee version of course meets, "The Lottery." And while the titles mentioned make you believe the story is unoriginal, that couldn't be further from the truth. Even when this ends you will remember Xander and Seth and the things they experienced , as well as the other "victims" of the tale.
I loved the characters, and felt for them, even if I wanted to smack them upside the head a few times, like the momma-hen I am. The Author made it easy to embrace them and want to get to the bottom of things right along with them.
The world created came to life on the page and you were there, seeing, feeling, tasting, and hearing everything just as Xander and Seth were. The creepy vibe mixed with the sensual and erotic vibe did wild things to my senses and I gobbled it all up like my most favorite meal!
If you enjoy a lil god/ demon possession with your Gay Romance, give this one a try. And tell Pan I said, HELLo!!
**just an fyi, while reading this I listened to dark instrumental music to edify the experience. 💖
I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.💋
I received this book as an Arc and I am reviewing it voluntarily.
It is about: two young male collage students (Seth & Xander) & when Xander apparently starts have nightmares and/or fugue episodes, Seth steps in to help him & the attractions flare between them.
There is: gods, humans, twists & turns, intrigue, drama, suspense, manipulations, confusion, friendship, emotional turmoil, insecurities, attractions, discovery, threats, defiance, confrontations, contempt, rejection, verbal banter, happiness, some steam & a rather unusual epilogue.
“I received a complimentary copy, and this is my honest & voluntary opinion”
I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily left this honest review.
While somewhat confusing to read, this was an interesting mythological romance. I felt bad for Xander and all he was going through, and with Seth, I understood his hesitance to get involved but was glad he did. The two have a lot of chemistry together and I enjoyed the paranormal aspects of this book.
This is a good idea for a story, but at some points I would have liked a bit more insight on the characters. Some parts of the story seem rushed while other seem to drag too long.
I like the characters, Seth and Xander. They need to find the relationship between dreams and reality and they will do it in a very interesting way.
I do recommend this book, but be a little patient with it.
Seth & Xander are a pair of college roommates with a connection neither is aware of. Through a series of rather disjointed scenes, we learn why neither young man can sleep, and how Xander is impacting others at the college. On a roadtrip from hell, all eventually becomes clear and the two FINALLY consummate their relationship.
The "romamce" elements are lacking and the steam is a bit formulaic, for my taste.
There are multiple plot points that are never really explained, or are barely explained, leaving this reader wondering more than what's the point?
