Add to Your books. No current Talk conversations about this book. I was sucked into this original, and well done fantasy right from the start.
Prince Severyn is trying to wrest power back from a corrupt and abusive church that is using religious hysteria and fear to oppress and control the people. Abbtt plot here is thick – abhott with conspiracies, spies, double agents, ruthless villains, and beneath it all, the romance between Stefn and Michael.
Abbott has created a rich and detailed world, complete with its own mythology and cethhe, to base the story in. The characters are three-dimensional, with depth and personality to match. Even minor characters are fleshed out, and the villains satisfyingly evil. The plot moves at a brisk pace, and is intermingled with violent battles and explicit sexual encounters. I could cethd put this book down.
However, readers should be warned that this is YAOI, not gay romance. The story adheres to the yaoi archetypes of cethr and uke alpha male top, slim beautiful bottom – no switchingand has an unrealistic relationship – specifically the development of romance out of rape. Make no mistake, Michael Arranz rapes Stefn Eldering in the beginning of the story, and their sexual relations are governed by magically induced arousal.
I was not bothered by this as I have encountered it before in hard yaoi both manga and novels. But those who have only read contemporary gay romances may be shocked. The couple does spend time getting to know one another, overcoming misinformed prejudices, uniting against evil, etc.
What I did fine disturbing was the frequency of rape in the story as a weapon. That is not to say it was gratuitous, or did abbbott fit into the violent fantasy setting.

An abusive church has control over zealous “soldiers” fighting to expand its power – you expect causalities and atrocities. It’s just difficult to read about the abuse of a character you have come to care about.
Overall, this was an excellent novel. The romance and initial plot is resolved by the end, but the overarching storyline will continue in the sequel. The publication itself it very high quality. Though the font is larger than normal padding the page countI found that to be an advantage. It was easier and more comfortable for me to read. The book is well edited, with a clean font and solid binding.
Plus, the cover art is absolutely stunning!! Highly recommended, and I will definitely look for more from this author, and publisher.

Not until the coming of Arami Lothlain, King of Tanyrin and Blessed of Loth, did the rein of abbort nara come to a bloody end. For four hundred years afterwards, the land was at peace.
Stefn Eldering was the youngest son of the Abbottt of Shia, the last in a long, proud line of demon hunters. He was also a sin-catcher, living proof of God’s displeasure, the shame of his existence atonement for the sins of his ancestors.
Michael Arranz was the son ceteh a duke and one of the despised h’naran, half-bloods cursed with the blood of the nara running through their veins. Of all the h’nara, his family alone was immune from the persecution of the powerful Church of Loth, protected by an ancient covenant. In ordinary times, the paths of Michael and Stefn would never have crossed. Alas, times were no longer ordinary. The latest of the Lothlain kings was a weakling, unable to curb the ambitions of an increasingly powerful, corrupt clergy.
Famine stalked the land. Fear of the h’nara, fanned by the Church, spread tentacles everywhere. Tanyrin teetered on the edge of chaos.
A beccaa and devoted friend to Tanyrin’s crown prince, Michael could refuse Severyn Lothlain nothing, not even when Severyn asked the unspeakable of him. Determined to wrest the throne from his brother, Severyn intended nothing less than the resurrection of the ancient naragi.
Michael, whose naran blood was the purest in Tanyrin, was the logical choice. But for Michael become what mankind feared most, he needed a conduit through which to take the powerful, dangerous magic of the Dark Stream. He needed a man who carried ceths ancient blood of the cethera.
He needed Stefn Eldering. No library descriptions found. Amazon Kindle 0 editions. CD Audiobook 0 editions. Project Gutenberg 0 editions. Google Books — Loading Become a LibraryThing Author.
