Jon draws comfort from his arrangement with Derrick Rees who works as a clerk for the local Stephanite bureaucracy. He feels more than friendship and attraction for "The Swordsman".
Jon is described as a strong and sensitive soul with aching wounds. He is the epitome of masculinity: buff and hairy. He is dark haired amd blue eyed.
Derrick is described as polite with a quiet exterior who has a passionate and proud heart. A mix of strength and softness. He is a red head with green eyes.
Derrick dreams of another dark haired man with gold eyes and an olive complexion. He has told Jon of his dreams and need to find and help this man. Jon fears for his sanity.
One day a storm sets events in motion that propel them into a new world, where a battle has engaged and they're caught right in the middle with a enemy from their homeland by the name Aubren.
Derrick's focus however is only on finding and saving his unknown mate from danger. Derrick shows a fierce, strong and sure nature when he has the "fire" in him.
Teri is the prince his people search for and current prisoner of Kar-Set, formal general to the Kingdom of Damerya. Teri held no interest to me even though he is vital to the story and how it develops. He almost appeared to be an afterthought or third wheel which Jon is painted to be more like but is not. Jon stands out the most to me, in addition, to Kar-Set.
Kar-Set and his interactions with Aubren fascinated me, although, I'm still unclear about his betrayal and end goal.
I really enjoyed this story and look forward to see how the plot progresses and the character relationships do as well. My rating was actually a 3.5. but I rounded up.
One pet peeve I have is skanky villain sex which this book plenty. The cover does not do this book any justice either, it just looks like three random guys slapped on a weird background which doesn't really give off that fantasy feel.
Setting and characters are interesting, plot is not new but it is consistent and sensible and I loved the idea of mixing unabashed erotica with traditional fantasy (even fantasy authors casting gay characters usually skip on the sex to concentrate on action).
On the other hand, beside typos that sometimes disrupts reading, writing is uneven: there are some good paragraphs but sex scenes tend to be flowery and overdescriptive while dialogues and inner monologues often fail to deliver the complex psychological details implied by the author.
It is a pleasant read but a revision could make it so much better.
I loved this book. I am extremely open minded and love to read. This book had all the fun stuff in it. It should seem far fetched but that's what I like about it. It's just different enough to make it a great read but not so unbelievable that you have to stop reading it in the middle. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out.
