Book Review

Who is an ally and who is the enemy isn’t always as clear as it seems. As shown in this story, sometimes there is more to a man, or, in this case, an elf, than meets the eye. The truth that seemed so clear before can, when questioned, suddenly reveal a different kind of reality. And even though this is a story in the fantasy genre, including elves and magic, the underlying message is just as important and valuable in our reality.

Ivenhal knows who the bad guys are, has experienced the cruelty of humanity's enemies from a young age, has even been made to swear an oath of celibacy, and banned to a remote area to watch the borders – just because he is gay. Alone and lonely, he is determined not to let down those who used to call themselves his friends any further, even at the cost of his own happiness. Jem may tempt him, but he decides not to give in.

Jem is a beautiful elf, and he has clearly fallen for Ivenhal. He also doesn’t understand why the human is so rough with him, but he asks some questions and the truth soon becomes apparent. It's a good thing Jem is just as determined to make Ivenhal see reason as Ivenhal is to remain stubborn…

If you like stories about magical creatures and faraway realities, if you enjoy reading about two men who start out as enemies and end up having to rethink everything they thought they knew, and if you're looking for a read full of passion and with the hope for a sequel, then you will probably like this free story.
