I'd seen this novel by Andrew Grey on various e-commerce sites for the past month or so and I'd always avoided it due to the horrendous cover artwork, possibly one of the worst covers I've ever seen. But when I was asked to review this Dreamspinner Press release, I tried to put the cover out of my mind. After all, there have been many truly excellent novels adorned with horrible covers, and sometimes a gem can shine through such bad packaging. But I am sorry to say that the cover foretells the q ...more
wow..well wasn't this just one big m/m sex-fest...not that i'm complaining.

i didn't realise it was two books in one. the first follows Travis and Cembran. i fell in love with those boys. Cembran had me crying by the end of the prologue alone.

the secong book started with Steven. i though it would a complete didn't story but it just followed straight on, you met Brock again about 1 chpt into it...and quickly you caught up with Travis and Cembran all over again.

i loved this whole book and they way

This book prompted me to buy every book in the series, and catapulted Andrew Grey to the top 10 list of my favorite authors. Don't miss out on this fantastic book!!
Andrew Grey is an incredibly prolific and popular m/m author. I’ve not read any of his longer books but I have read quite a number of his short stories and found them to be fairly decent reads. This is the first novel length book in his Children of Bacchus series which began with the Christmas short, Winter Love.

The story begins with a prologue. It’s long ago and Cembran, a Swiss shepherd, awaits his lover Gathod in his small shelter on the hillside. They share a night of passion but when Cembra

The title of the book actually got me curiou the first time I found it. The genre of this book is m/m romance or romance in the field of lgbt. It is written in the third person, maing it easier to read but that is only my own peronal preference. The format of this book made me even more interested in the book because the theme he uses has always seemed interesting for me and I wanted to know how this author has carried this idea out. The main character is a satyr - in greek mytology, satyrs are ...more
Significant editing issues, but the story far outweighs them

Rating: 8/10

- Loved the story(ies), especially toward the end of the book. The book has a beautiful, satisfying conclusion.
- Very good depiction of a progression over several years' worth of time. I LOVED the sense of community at the end of the book...not only are the two main characters happy and together forever, but they're also surrounded by a network of

This book was reviewed for Musings of a bookworm

OK I am a massive Andrew grey fan and will read anything with his name on it but a bit of me wishes I had left this well alone. Now don't me wrong this book was not awful or unreadable but it was slow and at time down right boring. This is a slow story of two men who fall in love and create a little community while facing a few challenges. The thing that saves this book is the fact it is written by Andrew Grey, he makes you want to now even when y
This is a awesome series its a must read.
