This book was getting a lot of chatter in my romance circles and that's pretty much what it is, a fantasy with romantic overtones.
I enjoyed my read. It was a slow read. The author writes beautifully; it's the type of book/writing that you want to linger over. I didn't really find an urgency to the plot, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
I liked the character of Mehr and I liked the character of Amun. I enjoyed how their relationship grew and how they grew together and on their own. Amun, the hero, is not your big warrior type, yeah, he's big and fit and strong, but it's his personality that is different. He's gentle and patient and quietly heroic.
This isn't a romance novel, but the relationship between Mehr and Amun takes up a large part of the plot because of their special powers. Talk about a slow burn, though. I don't mind that at all, but some might find it tedious.
Anyway, I enjoyed my read and will read the next in the series. This book pretty much wraps things up for these characters but there's more to tell about this world. Should be good. :)
