I want to be honest: I bought this one cause I like the cover! Oh, I read before K.B. Forrest, and I like his writing style (her? really I don't know if he is a man or if she is a woman), but fantasy setting mixed with demons and black magic is not my stuff.

So before reading I put the book under a test: I confess, I read some pages in the middle, to know how to expect from the book, and to decide if I wanted to read it all, cause it's also pretty long. I liked it and so I decided it would be my evening read. But when I arrived at home I found another book in my mailbox, one I was waiting from a bit, and so I read it first (it was a short novel, so I had still the time to read both). The other book was pretty strong, and sincerely as second read maybe it would be better to choose something light, and instead I read this one. And it's not light at all!

Aryazate is the abandoned child of a sorcerer in the Persia of 500 b.c.: his father has killed his mother and then he has abandoned him. He was lucky to be take in and raised by a wealthy and kindly woman, Nizami. Only there was a little problem: Nizami has disguided him as her little child, died of fever... but her child was a girl and so she has raised Aryazate like a girl. Obviously now there is another little problem: at eighteen years old Aryazate has long passed the age when usually girls married, but HE can't marry. Another problem is that, when Aryazate is angry, he unleashes some uncontrolled powers, that can make him accused of sorcery: and with the witch hunt that roars in the kingdom, it's better not to raise unwilling attention.

Kavada is a poor blacksmith that Aeyazate helps.

Oh yes...I loved the cover...and the story lived up to it. I have been looking for yaoi novels for some time now, and have read every one I can get my hands on. I love them all (with a few notable exceptions--mostly the shonen-ai type); however, one thing I always find lacking is story depth. This was not the case in "The Sorcerer's Secret," which was put together with what seemed like a lot of period research, as well as plot planning.
I was hooked by the first page. Now those of you who want lighter reading may not be too happy with all of the details, many of which include graphic violence. But that's just what appeals to me--well not the violence, but the fact that it did make it all the more realistic. Yes, those BC times were often quite savage, and people got away with a lot of killing.
Nevertheless, the scenes are done nicely. There isn't any wanton killing; rather, it all has its place in the plot. I won't go over that too much, since the previous reviewer did an excellent job. One of the problems with some books in the fantasy genre is that the use of magic is hodge-podge. Forrest pulls of the magic with finesse. There is a building of the idea and method that must have taken a lot of thought. This is one of the highlights, in my opinion.
Well, ok, the sex was great too. Oh, that first real love scene--I was holding my breath for Aryazate. I could feel his tension and fear of rejection. I really, really loved the voyeuristic character, the Master Hunter (I forget his name). It made the scene a lot sexier as he watched, mouth agape and face flushed with lust. I had to laugh!
I loved the surprise ending the most. It brought everything together--things which had been hinted at in some way. It was intriguing. I bought this book and devoured it before I could sleep that night.
I can't wait for the next!
