What made the experience of listening to Strange Fortune the most enjoyable?
I love the book, and David Lazarus' narration is perfect! It has a certain cadence that really fits in well with this fantasy story, the adventure, the quest, the characters. I felt like someone was really telling me a story, and not just narrating the book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Aleister Grimshaw for complexity, and Valentine Strange for optimism :-)
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene where they stop for a swim is one of my favorites, very sweet. Then there are some funny scenes, which make me smile every time i remember them, there's a long scene which made me appreciate Strange's character, and there's a particularly suspenseful one towards the end of the book.
If you could take any character from Strange Fortune out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Lady Hyde, so she can tell me all about her magic.

I think my disappointment with this book is primarily due to the fact that this is not really a MM romance book. It is a MM fantasy/adventure book and the MCs happen to be gay and bi. Mr. Lanyon's books are usually great relationship books with a great mystery woven into the background. In this book, the relationship is ancillary at best, just adding an interesting layer in the story. Maybe it is just the opening book to a series, I'm not sure, but he definitely does not focus on the relationship. That is not to say it is not a good story, it is, just not what I was looking for. The story is loosely based on colonialized India under English rule. It has witches, demigods, crazy monks, etc. I enjoyed the story and the writing is beautiful as always. The narrator was excellent. I just like my MM romance with a lot more romance.
