Further, the romantic aspects of this book, avoid mucking up, and even end up assisting, the mechanics and results of the quite satisfying unto-itself police procedural. But, as we do not yet live in a post-gay world, the author wisely allows for diverse sexual experience, but always keeps it character-specific. Also, that the book's central theme is one of authenticity (here; in rare books), the authenticity of it's characters is particularly appropriate, if as difficult in it's verification as that of the the tomes in question. It is all, I feel, dealt with just right.
I, as is ever said in positive "reviews" of books, "could not put it down", not until I had absorbed it in it's totality. I was quite caught up, in both the mystery of the crime and the mysteries of love. How refreshing to read a book with gay characters that wasn't "ALL ABOUT BEING GAY", or "COMING OF AGE", or "SELF-LOATHING" or "DENIAL", but was, here, the give and take of the main romantic couple, two men, two very different men, both gay, and truly in love - with each other. Each of them having travelled quite different, uniquely troubled pasts. How satisfying, then, their realization that, for their future journeys to be a shared, there need not be an explosion of teutonic self-discovery, or a sudden, bombastic leap toward self-acceptance but, rather, a considerably more subtle, internal shift toward a finer-tuned, assisted yet individually arrived at, authenticity. To no longer hide behind "pen names", but to rather bravely acknowledge their own life's "work", making their steps toward each other resound with truth, intimacy and legitimacy; their "provenance" mutually revealed, understood and shared, becoming, via the courageousness of authenticity, truly priceless.
Fantastically great writer with gorgeous characters and a tight, nice plot. All the makings of a wonderful relationship between an author and readers.
Sebastian Snow is an antique dealer and closet detective. He is targeted in a bizarre series of E A Poe's stories and well-you can imagine the trouble he gets into.
The set up is great, the characters are real and I thoroughly enjoyed this book and proceeded onto the second one. Can't wait for more!
Sebastian Snow is not quite as appealing as Adrien, nor does his relationship with Detective Winter have the same intense chemistry as Adrien and Jake. But he is a likable character. I couldn't help but wonder why he seemed so familiar to me, aside from the Adrien English thing.
Then, I went back through my bookcase, way into the back to find books I haven't touched in years, and it came to me:
Dean Koontz wrote a book called Fear Nothing, and its sequel Seize the Night. The main character is a man named Christopher Snow, who has, coincidentally enough, severe light sensitivity.
Another star vanishes. I try to give new authors the best rating I can. But come on. Some originality would be nice.
Still, I did end up liking the book, for one main reason: I thought her treatment of Winter's PTSD was compassionate and realistic. For that alone, I'll continue reading the series.
