write my first Amazon book review. Carlson's prowess with language is palpable. Her portrayals of characters are written with a genuine empathy evidently derived from a deep wisdom and insight into human foibles. Her characters are sometimes cerebral, often visceral, and all beautifully flawed. Carlson's themes touch upon situations and psychology from the most taboo to the most sacrosanct; her plots and storylines unfold so miraculously (yet wholly sans deus ex machina) and with such virtuosity she wrings from both her characters and audience alike raw emotions rarely made vulnerable in everyday life. If Strength is what you are looking for, you might find
her in India; if utter Absolution, you might find him in Phillip. But beware, dear reader, what you will ultimately find for yourself is catharsis ...
It's not often that I come accros a book tagged as MM romance,and end up with not only great romance,but a great work of fiction. And Tears is exactly that. And honestly, I am at loss here trying to find words adequate enough to tell you how much and why I loved this novel.
First of all,I would not describe this book as a fantasy with BDSM elements,like you would conclude from taggs or shelfs for this book. As you can read in author's review,this is a novel set in Victorian quasi-Paris world and I would describe it as a paranormal alternate history novel with one fantastical element - here the God is not called God but Immaculate.
Central theme here is a spiritual path of Phillip,on which he questions his very being,but never his faith,and on which he finds love. There is so much pain on that road,which most importantly I was able to feel,but was it more because I was all too familiar with it,or because of author's writing skills, her way with words and her ability to convey those emotions to me as a reader, I don't know. All I know that I was deeply touched by this book.
But this book is a romance as much as it is about faith... Watching relationship between Phillip and Oruthane develope was simply beautiful. Oruthane by loving Phillip managed to help him accept and love himself,and in a way restore faith in himself too,and Phillip by giving Oruthane the same managed to heal a soul tortured by past.
Important part of the story is a relationship between Phillip and his father,too. One has lost a mother,and the other one his beloved wife,and both trapped in its own misery they made a mistakes blind to what they are doing to each other. But those mistakes only managed to make Phillip seem more real to me. And yes,there was so much hurt between them,but in the end, so much hope and love too...
There are secondary characters that will leave you more or less intrigued (whose stories you can read in previous and next book of this series,which I fully intend to),but I'm affraid to reveal more,because I don't want to spoil this book for you.
In the end,I only wish this book was longer,so what can I say...Highly recommended.
