Publisher's Summary

When Griffin's past collides with his present, will it cost the lives of everyone he loves?
Between the threat of a world-ending invasion from the Outside and unwelcome revelations about his own nature, Percival Endicott Whyborne is under a great deal of strain. His husband, Griffin Flaherty, wants to help - but how can he, when Whyborne won't tell him what's wrong?
When a man from Griffin's past murders a sorcerer, the situation grows even more dire. Once a simple farmer from Griffin's hometown of Fallow, the assassin now bears a terrifying magical corruption, one whose nature even Whyborne can't explain.
To keep Griffin's estranged mother safe, they must travel to a dying town in Kansas. But as drought withers the crops of Fallow, a sinister cult sinks its roots deep into the arid soil. And if the cult's foul harvest isn't stopped in time, Fallow will be only the first city to fall.
Fallow is the eighth book in the Whyborne & Griffin series, where magic, mystery, and m/m romance collide with Victorian era America.

An upswing in the series.

This is one of those series that I wasn't sure about tackling at all, in the beginning. Historical fiction in the mm genre hasn't really been my thing, overall. These books are in fact much more fantasy than history though, and the things that I often find annoying about historical romances aren't really present in this series - I fell in love with Whyborne & Griffin from the very beginning.

Since I have read (or listened to) all of the books in the series it is difficult for me to judge if this book would work as a stand alone. I think it would be an okay stand alone - I don't think the listener would be completely lost as far as the plot of this book, though to be sure it features characters and makes mention of plots from earlier books - so would be best read as a part of the series as a whole.

I was all on board for the first handful of books in the series, but around book 5 I started to get a little nervous. Every time a new book comes out in this series I am both excited, but also anxious. Just by the nature of it being a relatively long running series, it is bound to either get repetitive or ridiculous as the jeopardy continues to inflate, by necessity, to retain the tension and reader interest. I live in dread of the volume where it finally completely jumps the shark.

Not yet. In fact, while I've only rated the story in the last couple of books with 4's (I liked them a lot, but they fell short of the first few that I totally loved), this one gets another 5 from me. It feels like it has returned a bit to the flavor of those earlier stories, and I was completely happy and satisfied at the end of this book. I will undoubtedly continue to look forward to future volumes with the same bit of trepidation - but I will also absolutely keep buying them.

Bringing back the real mystery of the series

This honestly was probably my favorite in the series. We've gone back to the original feel of the first few books. I was very excited to see things brought back around to Griffin which I feel his story has been only told in relation to Wyborne lately so that was great to see!
