Another delightful look into the world of the Amaranthine

I've loved every one of these but this one feels special for a different reason. Thought the others were lovely myths and legends, this is a small tale of a single family and one hopes that there could be many such all across this interesting world. That hits me right in the gut and makes me really happy for reasons I can't explain.

Charles Cooper has come back to his hometown with his two children after his marriage fell apart. He is feeling lost and lonely and determined to make a good life for his children Coop and baby Rose. He married young and has spent the past eight years or so as a homemaker. Now, his wife Ally decided that she wanted something different in life and threw him out. At least, she let him take his children. Charles is adrift in a sea of grief for the loss of a life he loved.

To be honest, I had no idea where this book was going, lovers? Friends? Heartbreak?
I just had to go with the flow and shed my traditional expectations and appreciate the love and intimacy that unfolded in this gentle story.
Once again, a strong portrayal in a beautiful world where it is ok to snuggle and draw comfort from the same sex, and it doesn't have to be 'dirty" or tainted. Its just love and commitment. Although it seems to always be between m/m or f/m, not really f/f. Is that on its way?

Not worth the money.

This is the most expensive book by this author and it doesn't even make sense. Why does Daroo-fen live alone? Why is he isolated from pack? It is so unhealthy and not the wolf way. It doesn't make sense and there is no explanation.
All the other books by this author got 5 stars from me but this one while cute and sweet was entirely unsatisfactory because it was pointless and illogical.
Also when he outs himself it makes no sense. Why did he change? Who was he talking to? Who

And delicate as always. The Amaranthine books - all of them, so beautifully illustrate new ways and new worlds of loving and existing and cherishing one another. Of holding and being held. I always feel permission to be softer, more giving, to trust and be vulnerable and to open up to myself and the magic of the worlds, after I read any of these lovely, lovely stories. Thank you, author forthright
Songs of the Amaranthine are short stories whereas the main Amaranthine Saga series are all novels.

Most of these works (both short and long fiction) are of the boy-meets-girl variety. Dragged Through the Hedgerows is also a love story and it also deals with lonely people but it is not a traditional romance story.

Suffice it to say that I enjoyed it enormously and I highly recommend it to all urban fantasy fans!
Daroo-fen is working as a lawyer, when he approaches a grieving son about his inheritance. But seeing the family's need, which matches his own, he first becomes a friend.

Why I started this book: I hadn't realized that Forthright had published another novella. I bought it immediately and started reading.

Why I finished it: Charming. Fun to ponder the possibilities of adopting a werewolf as a family pet. Especially if you didn't know... and then found out.

I am so in love with this wonderful world that Forthy has built for us to play in. This is her latest addition to her Ameranthine series. It was delightful, the characters were lovely and my only disappointment was that I wanted more. I read this entirely too fast! I don’t go into the whole plot on my reviews as I don’t like spoilers. If you are a fan of her novels and short stories, I’m sure you will love this one too. Two lonely souls that need each other.

Always magical

I am sure I have lived in something like a world with Amaranthine, either as a child or in another life. The magic in this world always touches my heart, with both familiarity and gentle awe. Please, please, good readers, do not go another moment without adding these stories to your life!

This is probably the first time in the Amaranthine series since the first published book that I've actually liked what I've read, and that sucks because it's short. Seriously, write a novel about a dude becoming the family pet and everyone healing from their issues, not the jangled mess of plots that happen in the main books!

So far I have thoroughly enjoyed every story of the Amaranthine books published. The only bad part is the wait to enjoy the next one! Hopefully we will get many more wonderful stories!

Forthright's stories are such a wholesome read, all fluff and yearning and dreams. If you want to read something that feels like coming home then I definitely recommend these books.

A quick romp but not quite as enjoyable as the others in the series. The story just didn’t feel balanced somehow, like something vital was missing but you couldn’t quite put your finger on what.

The day it comes out. Buy it. Devour it and then start over because it is so delicious and beautiful you have to read it again. It is so so so lovely. —ak
