One of my favorites since I was a child, and I'm not even a big dog fan. I still cry at the end. I guess I should add a disclaimer that real animal lovers are not going to appreciate the whole coon hunting angle, but it is a real story of love and loyalty
** spoiler alert ** 3.5 The triangles are getting confusing. Did everybody was engaged/slept/were married with each other? A little unrealistic. It's not even a triangle anymore, there's too many people for that. It's getting ridiculous. Easier to count the ones Denmar didn't touch in one way or another than the ones he touched. And Alric in the beginning felt like a strong character but later on he become weak and secondary. Waiting like some housewife for his knight to return home and defeat all evil. He is/was a powerful man and he did nothing, he left it all to his knight in shiny armor. The attack: I understand that Kray soldiers left (except one), what about Tristan's? They aren't mentioned, their loyalty not tested. They are ignored in a pretty dramatic scene. And it's unrealistic that all left (one doesn't count as he had other reasons for staying). And again there is the instant attraction. Gareth haven't felt any lust for a man for 2 years, but he lusts for Alric on the first meeting. I also didn't like Nadar character. He looked too stupid to be a king. Mostly the conversation there he keeps on screaming you want my kingdom and completely ignores what is said to him. He really annoyed me. And I didn't care then somehow it got through his thick skull that Gareth doesn't want his kingdom. I liked it a lot in the beginning but it started to be less and less interesting. Too much politics, scheming and keeping secrets for no apparent reason (I can accept any action, but it has to have a reason for it). The end got banal to me, dragged out. Started skimming to finish. So I mostly liked the first half of the book. Overall, the writing was good and I will read more of this author. The characters were well written too with only a few illogical actions.
This one waas reakky good, i like sparks and the trials they went throught there
