Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Seventeen-year-old engineering genius Kiram Kir-Zaki is the first full-blooded Haldiim to attend the Cadeleonian Academy Sagrada, and he knows they only admitted him in hopes of winning the Crown Challenge scientific competition. The uptight Cadeleonians stick him with the only roommate he can't corrupt with his heathen ways: Javier Tornesal, cursed by the evil powers of the white hell. The two are instantly attracted, but they must resist and hide their romance as Javier protects Kiram and helps him train for the competition. Then Kiram's uncle Rafie and his husband, the mystic Alizadeh, reveal secrets that could tear the boys--and the country--apart. An intricate world, well-integrated social issues, believable sexual encounters, and an interesting mystery make this dense, languorous tale appealing for any fan of romantic fantasy.

Review

An intricate world, well-integrated social issues, believable sexual encounters, and an interesting mystery make this dense, languorous tale appealing for any fan of romantic fantasy. Publishers Weekly

Lushly detailed, with believable, fully developed characters, this fantasy with homoerotic overtones is reminiscent of Mercedes Lackey's Vanyel novels and should appeal to a similar readership. Library Journal

There is something almost intoxicating about Ginn Hale's work. Her characters are unforgettable and her plots mesmerizing. The imagery in Lord of the White Hell blazes from the page with ferocious brightness. Josh Lanyon, author of Strange Fortune

Even though this book was published this year, I am a bit surprised that there are only three reviews to-date. This is a really good book, whether you are gay or not. There is very good, original plot and excellent character development. If you want constant explicit sex, this book is not for you. The sex is handled with great discretion and sensitivity. I have read a great many gay romantic novels, and at least half were not worth my time. This one compares favorably to Flewellings Nightrunner series. I have already read the sequel and will review it next. I hope Hale continues on and writes as well in subsequent novels. I shall certainly read them.

I began to wish for Ginn Hale's new book right after I have read her "Wicked gentlemen", which was I should say about three years ago. And no, couple of short stories were not nearly enough to satisfy my cravings for this writer's work. And finally we have the new novel and the novel in two volumes. I was so so happy to finally get them both in my greedy hands :)

To say that this book delivers would be an understatement, it just takes your breath away. This is a fantasy, a real epic fantasy, it does not just have fantasy dressings for gay romance. Both fantasy and romance are equally important here. The writer takes care to craft amazing, fully realized world with its history, science, art and some very ugly superstitutions and racism. This is the world where our heroes meet. Kiram, who is a seventeen year old genuis with machinery and first of the Haldiims to be accepted in teh prestigious Caledonian academy in many years and Javier, Caledonian noble and Duke who has a little problem of carrying a Hell inside of him. No, it is not really a spoiler, you really need to read the book to find out what exactly is this White Hell.

I really loved how Ginn Hale took a great care in developing our protagonists' relationships, made sure they got to know each other well and still did not forget that they are seventeen and eighteen year olds and that they also could be attracted to each other fast. It just rang true to me, every single interactions between them and even their quarrels ring true as well. No deliberate misunderstandings here and then spending half a book trying to correct that misunderstandings. Oh no, the problems between them mirror the problems that stand between their nations in a sense and in a sense their problems are due to their personalities.

Oh I love this book so much and now off to read book two.

First an important note: This "book" should really be considered the first half of a book which concludes in the second of this series, Lord of the White Hell: Book Two (The Cadeleonian Series). Although some reviewers have commented on the fact that this book ends on a "cliffhanger," in actuality the break between Book One and Book Two is not much more than the type of break you will find within most single novels between one chapter ending on a tension-filled note and the next chapter beginning afterward in the aftermath of that tension. Quite literally, the action that takes up in the beginning of Book Two happens only a few hours after what happens at the end of Book One and could easily have appeared in Book One without seeming in the least bit odd. If you are planning to buy this book, you might as well plan to buy Book Two at the same time. They really can't be considered separately; that would be like writing a review of only the first 20 chapters of a 40-chapter book; consequently, I feel obliged to review both at the same time.

Although I have read fantasy series involving gay or bisexual characters as main characters in the past, I am relatively new to the "M/M Romance" genre in which this book falls. I have been noticing that, within this genre, romance between the principle characters tends to take the center stage while plot -- and action related to the plot -- fills an almost incidental, background-noise type of role. Lord of the White Hell is no different.

On the one hand, Ginn Hale's approach is a little frustrating for me and might be frustrating for others more used to reading straight-up fantasy than m/m romance in a fantasy setting.

There aren't many books I consider to be epic masterpieces. When an author writes a book that will be labeled as such, and knowing that have achieved a deep emotional response from a reader, that is where they deserve a major pat on the back. This is where a reader will finish reading the last page and finally release a deep breath they have been holding inside because they have been on the edge of their seat the entire time. And, they will most likely go back and re-read it all over again.

An author who has written such a book has truly accomplished something incredible.

That book is Lord of the White Hell: Book One by Ginn Hale.

Ginn has written a story of wonderment that has amazing world building and not to be forgotten characters. Lord of the White Hell will astound you. This is an adult read with a gay romance, but also has a feel of a fantasy young adult book. The main protagonist is seventeen-year-old Kiram, who is given the chance of the lifetime in attending the very affluent Cadeleonian Academy. Kiram is not a Cadeleonian, but is Haldim. Because Kiram is from a different race, he's looked down upon and is a victim of bigotry. Kiram is a very skilled as a machinist and his father is a well known candy maker. Kiram knows he won't fit in, but will try his best to excel, seeing as no full-blooded Haldim has ever been accepted into the school.

Kiram ends up being roommates with Javier Tornesal, duke of Rauma, who will be his mentor of sorts. Javier is well respected, admired and equally feared not only because of his station in life but because he has a deadly curse living inside of him.
