I picked “Sins of the Father” on a whim and it was such a pleasant surprise that I read it twice in a row, but the fact remains that it can also be a bit disconcerting. In its form, at least.

It is a short story rather than a novella and it ends abruptly at 77%, which is irritating and is a disservice to the story but I’m rating the author’s work, not the publisher’s.

It is timeless and could happen in a period expanding from the Middle Age to the end of the feudal system in Japan in the
What a bumpy ride this story was! The beginning was a really good one! Very promising and then..the author just strangled the story! Gosh! I almost wailed when I saw a great story ruthlessly assassinated!

The way the main characters interacted in the beginning promised so much! But all the reader got from the story was a feeling of uncertainty and unsatisfaction. More than just a couple of times I found myself asking "what's going on?! where am I and why?! and what are the characters doing here?!

I succumbed to the lure of the gorgeous cover and an excerpt that promised more than the story delivered. But at the end of the day, I can't say that I enjoyed it. There's no natural flow to the story, with jumps in time and place, characters coming in out of nowhere like they've been there all along only to disappear again, and no real sense of time in spite of a lot of terminology thrown at the reader. Then, it just ends, leaving me literally staring at my screen and thinking, "That's it?"

It's pretty nice if you feel like reading something a tad deeper than the normal MM romance, with some angst that doesn't sound stupid.
I had 3 main problems with it, though:
1 - it kept skipping from one scene to another (different time and place) without any warning which was annoying, if not confusing
2 - I was a bit confused about when the action is placed (because some details made me think of a pretty modern society, but it was clearly set before any serious European influence in Ja

Lovely cover, just beautiful. More like this, please.

I don’t know if it was the author’s deliberate style to induce a feeling of “inscrutability” in this book but I found it a little heavy going. It’s only 40 or so pages, but it took me a couple of days – I kept going back to it over and again. Usually I’d expect to read something like this is one hit. The story flickered around a great deal flipping from the protagonists going on an killing raid then a scene in the town and I found it hard to c

The storyline has not a normal development and the reader is plunged in the lives of two shinobi in the Japanese warlord era. Sora Sanada is 19 years old and just named captain and Kaname Takeda is appointed his sempai; what apparently seems a dislike due to the fact that the captain is 10 years younger than his man, slowly becomes clear as a different dislike, there is bad blood between the two clans of Sanada and Takeda, but even that it’s not fully explained. What it’s clear is that Sora star ...more
