The Good
An epic Roman love story which I really enjoyed, once I warmed to the all the terms and names. It was nice that this was an epic fantasy tale - but I did get a bit lost at the beginning with all the new names.

The Bad
I found myself ignoring the dialect as at the start I was trying to decipher every word. It takes some time to get into and I would have given the story 5 stars if it the dialect didn't throw me off the pace.

The Ugly
This is desirable and not ugly in any wa

What starts out with titillation burning from the page—sweat soaked thighs, fingers diffing into flesh—is not what it appears to be. I’m captivated by the time I learn this was the stuff of dreams, literally. Aed’s dream.

Right away I want to know about this couple, I’m invested in the passion our protagonist has for his beloved. But where is she? The answer

This story is even more captivating than the first in the series as it has two lovers, Aed and Murine, desperately trying to reunite -- despite all the obstacles and doubts in their way.

One thing (besides the obvious of the plot, setting, characters) that I enjoyed in this story was the different portrayal of the "freedom" of women from the variou

Aed is an honorable man determined to find his love Muirne after she is taken from him.
This author should rework the summary of the story that the potential reader sees as there is a lot more emotion and action than is written there. Both Aed and Muirne work to get back to each other, and each is thwarted along the way by unpredictable persons and events. The author does a good job showing both sides of the journey toward and away from each other. There is good characterization of both maj

Although born in New Orleans, I am proud to call myself an Alaskan. I have lived here for 37 years, I have survived -40 degrees, hauled water, made bear bacon and live in a cabin.
