Publisher's Summary

When young Alec of Kerry is taken prisoner for a crime he didn't commit, he is certain that his life is at an end. But the thing he hadn't counted on was his cellmate. Spy, rogue, thief, and noble, Seregil of Rhiminee is many things, none of them predictable. And when he offers to take on Alec as his apprentice, things may never be the same for either of them. Soon Alec is traveling roads he never knew existed, toward a war he never suspected was brewing. Before long he and Seregil are embroiled in a sinister plot that runs deeper than either can imagine and that may cost them far more than their lives if they fail. But fortune is as unpredictable as Alec's new mentor.

Fun! Refreshing!

I don't normally write reviews but felt compelled after I almost didn't download this book due to the other reviews. In fact I went to Amazon to get additional reviews since I felt what I was seeing was blatant homophobic remarks that had nothing to do with how well this book was written or if the story was engrossing. I very much enjoyed this series, the plot, writing, characters, and dialog. It was exactly what I was looking for. In fact the only negative thing I can say about this series is that I wish they would stick to the same narrator for all the books. I almost gave up listening when the narrator was changed in book 4 and to be honest I would have if I didn't enjoy the story so much! The comments given that the amazing love shared between these two men was not necessary to the story baffle me. I felt it was an integral piece of the story line to understand why they made the choices they did and brought me to care so much more about their struggles and relationship. I guarantee that if one of the main characters was a woman there would have been no complaints with the other reviewers. The emotion between them was love not lust, tasteful, moving, and beautiful.

A really good story. (What homosexuality?)

This is a really interesting adventure. There are wizards and magic. Evil bad guys. A valiant hero and his apprentice. Adventure. Breath taking escapes. A whole world has been created for our enjoyment.

How can anyone complain of spoon fed homosexuality in this story? One of the characters entertains a few thoughts. That's about it. You will get stronger sexual references in the average TV commercial. I'm started on the second volume and so far in the two stories the only overt sexuality is heterosexual.

There are some really, really intolerant folks writing reviews. It isn't the story that did it. Must be something inside the reviewer. Are they just too stimulated at the thought that a hero might be gay?
