First up a word of warning to all manly men and/or anti-gay fanatics who may be reading this: this book is not for you!

If, however, you know what slash fiction is and think Alistair and Zev would be hot together there is a good chance you will like this book as well as Miss Constantine’s other Wraeththu works.

While most of her previous books in the Wraeththu setting are a combination of intense character studies and deep mysticism, in this book Miss Constantine focuses completely on her characte

I enjoyed this book that takes place in the world of Wraethus. The characters in this book are different than in the previous books. I liked the main plot about Jassenah and Isobi. I think this book shows that the hars of Wraethu really still have so many of the same flaws as humans did, at least as far as having trouble with relationships with other hars. I liked Isobi at the beginning of the book, but lost some of my kind feelings toward him by the end of the book. I'm glad that there is a seq ...more

I was expecting a book about the spiritual growth of a har and thought that we would be seeing more of the rituals and abilities that come with it. Not exactly what happened.

The main characters were fine until everyone just turned so...female. I felt like they were a bunch of bickering girls who were not at all ...more

Dayum! That was intense. Also it went in a COMPLETELY different direction than I was expecting o_O I was expecting another run-of-the-mill (but enjoyable) "forbidden love" story. I actually rate this four and a half stars.
I quite love the concept of the Sulh so this was a nice and new perspective.
