I very much enjoyed this adventurous, yet romantic tale of stepping through the fabric of one world into that of another, to chase after love. Entering the story, I was immediately captivated by Jace, a lonely, but determined young artist, who after a debilitating breakup with his lover two years earlier, is taking things one day at a time. Jace lives above a gallery which is home to some of his artwork, but manages a coffee shop to pay his bills. He’s a bit gun-shy on the romance, and as such h...more

A Joyfully Jay review.

3.5 stars

is the first book in Alex Jones’s very promising series, Knights of Amaranth. You all know I’m a huge lover of all things fantasy, so of course, I had to read this high fantasy gem. Remain is the story of a man who didn’t know he was lonely until he found someone who made him feel whole, then he almost lost the guy. This story takes Jace on an adventure into a new world alongside Morgan and his family and friends. It’s a fast paced, multi-faceted story of l...more
SlashReaders: I have a soft spot for books that deal with faeries or things of this nature and so I bought this book on a spur of the moment decision. I'm happy to report that I was not disappointed. For the most part I feel that this is an underdeveloped area of fantasy at the moment with many people focusing on vampires and werewolves. Though they all have their fun points, there are a lot more books in that vane than this one.

"Remain", starts off in a rather predictable fashion. Jace, is stil...more

...although from one review, this one sounds more sex-centric (damnit). I keep waiting for an m/m equivalent of Holly Black's Tithe/Ironside, but alas, either it's not dark/gritty enough or it's all sex-centric and the plot was abandoned on the wayside (woe is me)
This romance was enjoyable enough, but the storyline didn't speak to me. Sure the way it began was pulling and rather good, but the storyline soon lost her appeal. I was bored at the end.
I loved this. The writing was great, the world was interesting and the love story was great. Will definitely read the others in the series.

Could have done with a lot less sex and a little more storytelling. The rotating POV was interesting at first, but I feel that it ultimately detracted from the story and made it harder to relate to the protagonists. The magic of Amaranth, the politics, and the monsters were the most interesting parts of the story, and they weren't discussed that much at all. Just things that were kind of there. If there are sequels to Remain, I hope they are more fleshed out and not in the sexual way.
Quite a few typos but otherwise not a bad fantasy romance.
