This book brought to mind an online conversation I read once regarding Fantasy pre-Tolkien and post-Tolkien. Someone essentially stated that after LOTR was released, it became very hard to find fantasy that didn't show Tolkien influence.

It was there. Subtle, but there (unlike a v. popular 5 book series about a flying cat/dragon shifter couple, whereupon the author pretty much lifted dialog between Galadrial and Frodo and plopped it on a page). Since it was subtle - things like a seaport named Am

It was ok, but nothing spectacular.

"Brews" started out pretty interesting, but lost something along the way....or more accurately, it waxed and waned. Some parts I was really into, other parts not so much.

The thing I loved most about this book was that it has so much emotion in it. It was more a love story than a "fighting" book, but it was balanced with hardships and humorous situations. The world was beautiful, and the people equally captivating. Strange Brews is the perfect complement to any fantasy romance collection. And the second book was just as good, if not better!

This is a great story if you seem to always butt heads with your significant other. While the two main characters spend most of their time fighting the attraction between themselves they must also fight an old enemy that wants to regain control.
