The writing felt a little complicated to me, more what you’d expect from a fantasy. Some passages seeming almost lyrical and overly expressive. Which can be nice sometimes, especially when describing the kind of winter wonderland setting that the men are living in, but it got to be too much for me. I had difficulty connecting with the characters when I had to regularly reread passages to figure out what was happening and what our MCs were talking about. I often felt like I was left out of a joke. What I suggest is readers download a sample and have a read of that. If you enjoy this writing style then you’ll probably really enjoy this story.
The character of Cam was weird and fascinating. The blurb mentions his odd behavior, but that’s putting it rather mildly. I loved the way Guy likened him to some kind of mythical creature, beyond the comprehension of mortal men, because that’s exactly how he felt. I don’t know that I’ve ever come across another character like him, and I appreciated the way the author allowed him to be so dismissive of labels and gender conformity. He knows his preferences because it’s his body, his mind, so people can try to apply any labels that they want because it doesn’t change him in anyway. He doesn’t care. And not in a rude, dismissive way, but he honestly just doesn’t bother worrying about it.
The plot was also a little random, but in a good way. There’s no way that you’ll see those twists coming. It certainly keeps you guessing and on your toes. The publisher’s warning for graphic violence should indeed be heeded, and as I read along I couldn’t see how this violence was going to ever be incorporated. It doesn’t seem like that kind of book. Though those instances are brief and in the past, they are intense.
While I am recommending this book, do check out a sample first, and decide if the writing works for you.

Completely not what I expected and I love that in a story. I was surprised by it's originality.
For a not native a bit difficult read, sometimes had to read passages twice. Some communication between both I didn't understand at all....Also there were lines like there were words missing. And passages missing, very confusing...It was a hard job. But......!!
After said I must say the content was really well, intriguing done. So if English is your native...!
Guy is judged more than once for his attitude. Most people find him cold, no expression, not connected. Cam sees more things than most.
Cam has the features of an angel and Guy is mesmerized by him.
Cam is accused by plagiarism his fathers books after he died. Guy has to find the truth.
Guy finds the hut Cam lives in, far away from civilization.
Cam is detaching himself sometimes. The world far away... Guy discovers something unbelievable terrifying...
The story goes deep in psychological way, bones deep. It crushed me unexpectedly... I understand there was more going on in Cam's life...but this...this...I didn't see it coming.
It crashes and cracked my heart in million pieces.
Amazing captivating written story, it had a very intriguing storyline..
Absolute worth reading.

Guy is traveling to find an author who happens to be the son of perhaps his most revered storyteller as a young adult. His mission is to determine if Cam really wrote the book being vetted by his publisher friend’s company…or is it? As I mentioned, read carefully and keep in mind that this is not a superficial, light and fluffy read. Review tags as trigger warnings. The story is beautiful yet at times very dark. The descriptions of the work of an ecologist in the wilderness are stunning and add great color to the story.
What did I just read? You will need to take a few deep breaths after this one!
