The author doesn't consider this story to be YA, but too bad. ;-) I think it's very much a YA story.

And a very good one. The depth of the world Coatsworth created is admirable, especially considering the story's length. I was legitimately startled halfway through, when it was revealed that the Autumn Lands were very, very different than I'd anticipated. I don't generally like mixing genres, but I think it worked very well, in this case. The characters were engaging, and the romance was very swee

(Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Reviews with a copy provided by the author / publisher for an honest review.)

This is my first read of a J. Scott Coatsworth book, but it definitely won’t be my last. I quite enjoyed this fantasy story…even after a major twist half way through! I’m not doing any spoilers on what that twist is, so don’t even ask!

We meet Jerrith in the beginning of the story when he is on the run. Quite quickly we’re told the reason is that he kissed an elf…a male elf…and was cau

To start of this review I have to say this world the author created in this book was amazing!

The author explains everything that is happening in this world you really feel like you are there. Jerrith is on the run after being caught kissing Caspian. The moment these two men eyes meet they just knew they were meant for each other. I will just say I loved the way this author wrote these characters. Between the Dual POV's which was awesome to get to read what they are both thinking and feeling. To

Interesting science fantasy. A quite short story, not too much heat and a bit of a fated lovers vibe, but it was sweet with some creative world-building and a nice ending.

The Autumn Lands begins with a kiss—one that leads to serious consequences for both Jerrith and Caspian. Jerrith is an average guy, but Caspian is and elf who has lost his wings. As Caspian’s memories start to come back, he realizes that Jerrith is his destiny and kissing him was what led to his downfall. Jerrith and Caspian set off to the Autumn lands to set things straight, but when they arrive there is a surprise waiting for them.

Though there was no sex in this book

The Autumn Lands was an engrossing adventure set in a fascinating world. I enjoyed J. Scott Chatsworth's writing, the unfolding mystery of Cas' background and also the twist partway through the story. There was no on-page sex, which is not bad to me in itself, but I think it might have been too much off-page in that I did not get much sense of how it affected either MC or their relationship arc. The ending was unusual and fitting to the overall tale albeit a bit sad. This was my first book by th ...more

The world building is excellent and the storytelling hooked me in, but I have to admit I didn't love the ending. It wasn't what I was expecting and I guess that was a disappointment to me. However that is just my personal opinion and it doesn't detract from the fact that this was a very well written story, I will definitely read more from this author.

Scott lives with his husband in a leafy Sacramento, California suburb, in a cute yellow house with a pair of pink flamingoes in the front yard.

He has always been in the place between the here and now and the what could be. He started reading science fiction and fantasy at the tender age of nine, encouraged by his mother. But as he read the golden age classics and more modern works too, he started
