THE GAY EROTICA IS HAUNTED AND PLAGUED BY SOME FANTASYThough during the first fifth of the novel we do not really know what the stake and objective of it is, it finally after some 120 pages becomes clear and then the fantasy changes from some feudal old plot to an erotic, and in some chapters absolutely graphic and explicit gay threesome adventure Welcome to the planet where kings are all gay and like threesomes, at times for the sake of having some heir bisexual If you are not in that kin THE GAY EROTICA IS HAUNTED AND PLAGUED BY SOME FANTASYThough during the first fifth of the novel we do not really know what the stake and objective of it is, it finally after some 120 pages becomes clear and then the fantasy changes from some feudal old plot to an erotic, and in some chapters absolutely graphic and explicit gay threesome adventure Welcome to the planet where kings are all gay and like threesomes, at times for the sake of having some heir bisexual If you are not in that kind of gay and marginally lesbian fantasy or erotica, you better forget about it If you are able to understand love is not a question of sexual orientation, you may have a chance to go through the story and enjoy it This complicated love story is punctuated with feudal fights or battles, and that s the aspect I am most critical about.There is little unity in the feudal struggle of this ousted and clandestine young heir to the throne that was taken over by a monster queen from the south, a queen that has no name and governs or rather controls her or should I say its kingdom with a band of assassins that certainly not who can only kill, that s their function and that s their nature they have been reduced to killing SAD as a certain president would tweet The author tries to save one by making him fall in love with the young underground clandestine ousted king and vice versa by making the young ousted clandestine king fall in love with the spy and assassin that has been appointed by the queen to follow and eventually assassinate him or at least enable him to be assassinated by some of the queen s soldiers You must admit it is not simple This young king, Inea by name, was helped escape from prison by a minstrel of some kind who actually was the male lover of the young king s father wo killed himself after his wife was poisoned by the queen s agents in the court itself, these queen s agents who were the king s ministers selling the son to the queen for her to turn him into her play thing But the author shifts the plan and thus we shift from a threesome liking king with a wife and a lover identified as a totally owned and possessed minstrel, to his son who falls in love with the minstrel who actually helped him escape the dungeon in which he was supposed to wait for the queen s decision on his fate, and later on with an assassin who was supposed to infiltrate the fugitive young king s band by seducing the minstrel, which was easy since the minstrel is absolutely obsessed with and by his hormones.And there is the gay threesome who is going to take over the feudal scene by securing an alliance with another king, the king of the desert tribes, who is also gay but married to only one man who used to be his own soldier, and faithful to this man who is said to be black, though he is the only who is specified in such a detail This being said the novel then turns pathetic as for the love relations between Inea, the young king, Ansyn, the minstrel, and Kaedon, the assassin Pathetic because they constantly fall part and thenor less manage to come back together Such a threesome marriage as announced at the end is unique in many ways since it only officially exists for one triple instead of couple in one country in the world, Colombia Three men who are married to each other, have gained legal recognition for their polyamorous marriage in the conservative Catholic country of Colombia The Sidney Morning Herald, And that s what this author tells us stories of Slaves to fantasy and romance, as the author s page proclaims on the publisher s site.And that s just the problem It is not a real fantasy story with only one dynamic, or at least a very dominant dynamic Too often we forget everything about the queen and the assassins that are chasing this young king and that will come back into the story when an attack will be staged every so often and periodically At the same time the at least erotic romance that is exclusively gay in its explicit realization and descriptions is constantly broken by elements from the fantasy side of this moon but the love jealousy, rivalry, ambition, possession and all meaning are needed here from plainly owning the other to haunting him or being haunted by him , is nicely described but does not really reach the absolute level we could expect it definitely is nothing but desire, hormonal activation, lust, physical contact and penetration and I did not really find the haunting fear and bliss that this penetration is at least parallel to the use of a sword or a dagger or an arrow, and the use of such warlike weapons is also balancing fear and bliss, bashfulness and lust, and it is thus nothing but the expansion or initiation of some brutal and lustful climax That reduces the final battle with the queen to a pantomime of very nasty kids who are destroying the toy or the dolly they had been playing with There is no veracity, authenticity and reliability in her and since we only meet her in the final battle in the last five percent of the book she appears as nothing but a killing robot and fantasy is a genre in which the characters, on both sides of the divide and the pale, are human Harry Potter s Voldemort and he has a name is a monster but the genius of the author is to develop and uncover the human dimension of him who was made a monster by the mistreatment he suffered in the hands of fellow wizards and witches There is nothing of the sort here She is not even a chatbot because she hardly speaks some coherent and human discourse.But this is a rather general remark I could make on the story Every character has no freedom of choice or whatever They are all SLAVES of their desires, lust, power, will to dominate, to own, to use Even the desert king Jalin is shown as being a spoiled brat who plays with a stray kitten picked in the street and who is in love with a black warrior Kiir who literally controls him with his dancing We have to think of Salome and her seven veils dance But that is just the point the dance for Salome is her way to take control of her stepfather and uncle which makes her a female Hamlet But the tragic dimension of this Biblical and historical event is lost because there is no stake in the dance No John the Baptist and no head to get delivered on a silver platter The death of the unnamed queen is certainly not delivered on a silver platter And Oscar Wilde s delirious Salome making love with John the Baptist in words and then with his head is far from this story Difficult to imitate with Inea since Inea is gay and would not be thrilled by the unnamed queen s head, except if his gayness were explored as some kind of escape from a deeply morbid and mortiferous personality.Even if the gay erotica is correct altogether, I just wonder if the author is what his her name seems to reveal Is the author a man or a woman The gay characters are charming but they have no depth and their love making is purely mechanical while their love declarations are purely enslaving possession Love is a lotcomplicated and it cannot be reduced to the instinctual robotic thermodynamics of a few legs, arms and other members encountering the various openings of a few bodies Even the music of the minstrel and his poetry is not exemplified in any way It is true and difficult to consider what kind of a creative mental dimension Kaedon would have Think of Jalin and his fixation on a kitten playing with silver coins Think of Kiir reduced to a dance, which in a way is creative and mental but we do not penetrate at any time this dimension of this dance it is only a seductive tool to capture the attention of a grown up though childish kid Gay romance deserves better than just being a vacillation between erotic scenes and escaping sprees that always end well, plus some fantasy battles to cut up the humdrum bed scenes Just enjoy the story as some entertainment I am sure it is not intended to go beyond this titillating level.Dr Jacques COULARDEAU I ve been following this book since the authors first started to post

fell in love with Anysn, the badass musician, rather quickly and the other characters through him Their interactions are brutally realistic, and they made me cry and laugh exactly the way the book should have Watching Inea s growth into a proper king was heartwarming, and I can t get over how sexy and confident Kaedon is The three of them make a perfect team.The supporting cast is just as wonderful, and they build their own relationships on the side that help the book come to life.The scenes between the three lovers are burning hot and might have steamed up my glasses a time or two I m not sure what I enjoyedthose, or the beautiful cinematic action scenes with the two assassins, especially Ansyn with that spinning knife of his.There were too many things to fall in love with, and I know I ll be rereading this book over and over and eagerly anticipating the next release from this amazing team of authors This book was fantastic and I absolutely loved reading it I usually read at night, after the kids go to bed, but this book got escalated to daytime reading Normally I don t read during the day, the main reason being R and her escapades, but I made time to read this book.I am going to be very, very, very honest.I couldn t stand Inea He came across, to me, as a very sheltered, very spoiled kid who had no clue how to take care of himself in the real world He was always crying over something I This book was fantastic and I absolutely loved reading it I usually read at night, after the kids go to bed, but this book got escalated to daytime reading Normally I don t read during the day, the main reason being R and her escapades, but I made time to read this book.I am going to be very, very, very honest.I couldn t stand Inea He came across, to me, as a very sheltered, very spoiled kid who had no clue how to take care of himself in the real world He was always crying over something I kinda wanted to reach through the book, smack him and tell him to stop crying and start working on how he was going to get his kingdom back.which he eventually did He also was constantly getting hurt, which baffled me You would think, with the experienced men women around him, that he would have been better at defending himself because they would have had some sort of lessons with him or that they would be better at keeping him from getting hurt But, he wasn t I mean, Ansym and Kaedon did eventually teach him to defend himself but still.He did have some good, redeeming qualities He cared, deeply, about his people and wanted to get his throne back from the Queen He loved with all of his heart and he had to have been the most kind hearted main character that I have read in a while But like I said above, I couldn t get past how he acted in the first half of the book Drove me crazy go nuts.On the other hand, I loved Ansym He is a badass Not only can he play the violin like a pro and uses that talent to stir up a small amount of civil unrest about the Queen s rule but he is a trained assassin and you know what, I wouldn t want to be on his bad side Nope, no way What he does to his enemies thinking about the boy, Dae, here is something I wouldn t wish on my most hated enemy.He really doesn t show a soft side in the book until he meets Kaedon At first, what was between them was just sex but you could just see Ansym falling in love with him And it was cute I loved watching his walls come down and seeing him fall for someone Then Inea was added into the mix and seeing him try to battle his feelings for Kaedon and Inea was heartbreaking When you find out why, which is actually revealed pretty early in the book, you can understand why he was afraid of falling in love.I do wish that Kaedon did come clean to Inea and Ansym a littler earlier in the book It could have saved Inea an injury heartbreak and Ansym heartbreak if he did But on the other hand, I can see why he didn t.The sex between all three men was crazy hot I thought the first time between Kaedon and Ansym was hot but the threesome between Inea, Ansym and Kaedon was burning and every sex scene after that was just as hot.I will say that Ansym and Kaedon s ages were a big surprise For some reason, my mental image of Ansym was of an older man It was fueled by how he talked about himself and how the other s in the party treated him So, yeah, I was surprised when he finally revealed his age.The end of the book was pretty routine and the main story line plus the other storylines got wrapped up in a pretty dramatic way Giving away a small spoiler here but the last battle scene was fantastic and the way it ended Lets just say that I felt very, very satisfied after reading it I like it when a book makes me feel like that King s Lament is a very well written story of political intrigue, romance, and ass kicking in a kingdom reminiscent of medieval England There are no dragons, magic elves, or unicorns, but that doesn t detract from the unique feel of a fantasy world crafted by the author The only reason I did not give this novel five stars is because of the typographical errors There are not enough to make the story unreadable, but there are enough to cost the book one star Errors have since been correct King s Lament is a very well written story of political intrigue, romance, and ass kicking in a kingdom reminiscent of medieval England There are no

typographical errors There are not enough to make the story unreadable, but there are enough to cost the book one star Errors have since been corrected and I have changed my rating to five stars accordingly I recommend King s Lament to fans of stories akin to the legends of King Arthur This book is amazing, It s heart breaking, frustrating, sweet, and hilarious and so freakin cute The main characters, Ansyn and Inea, are complex, strong, broken, brave, and adorably quick to blush Kaedon also plays a major role in their development This author weaves a story of absolute anguish to tell you how these men used love to overcome it and their fears of loss These characters struggle and fight for their happiness doing anything to keep each other sane, alive, and happy Though no This book is amazing, It s heart breaking, frustrating, sweet, and hilarious and so freakin cute The main characters, Ansyn and Inea, are complex, strong, broken, brave, and adorably quick to blush Kaedon also

for their happiness doing anything to keep each other sane, alive, and happy Though not everything goes well for them and every time you turn around it seems there s something about to take their chance at happiness away, and the story dives right into your heart and drags you with them Leaves you clenching your Kindle so hard it might break, or laughing and blushing right along with the characters This book is an amazing read and I loved it Glad it s apart of my library I wasn t sure what to expect from this book, but I decided to give it a chance since I love high fantasy.I loved the first few pages when Inea found out he was being sold to the queen and put in a dungeon I loved how Inea met Ansyn I m a sucker for angst characters who meet in depressing circumstances.I loved reading the book but somewhere along the 25 45% of the book it got slow and boring so I skipped a few pages I read the last two chapters to know how the book would end and if I should I wasn t sure what to expect from this book, but I decided to give it a chance since I love high fantasy.I loved the first few pages when Inea found out he was being sold to the queen and put in a dungeon I loved

pages I read the last two chapters to know how the book would end and if I should continue , took a break and resumed reading after a few days.My favorite character was Ansyn because he seemed the most relatable and realistic If I drank when ever Inea made me want to punch him in the face I d die of alcohol poisoning No seriously, he was SOOOO annoying, like half the time I wanted him to get his shit together and take responsibility control of the situation as someone in his position should I don t mean just saying he would, but actually getting stuff done His emotion, behavior, and actions were all over the place.Kaedon was a badass character, his reaction and behavior to Inea while somewhat understandable was unrealistic one minute he was kicking ass and taking names, and the other he was a pile of mush WTF My negativity aside, there were lots of fun scenes, I mostly loved watching Kaedon and Ansyn fight side by side, I loved how the three men fit well, I loved how Inea slowly grew a spine and got his shit together, and most importantly the sex scene was wow slightly unrealistic butt hehe wow I LOVED Caday my precious son A young man betrayed by his own people, sold

past Kaedon is a rogue assassin willing to help the king regain his rightful place but can an assassin fully be trusted What ulterior motive is behind his actions Can the three come together long enough to heal their emotional wounds, and rid the world of the Queens tyranny Positives The plot is intriguing Descriptions are on point not too much or too little Negatives While the plot is highly intriguing the character development is lacking and confused.One second Ansyn is a force to be reckoned with and the next he is an emotional basket case Rogue assassin Kaedon is highly dangerous, composed and aggressive but then he turns into a puddle of mush in the presence of Inea and Ansyn Inea is unfortunately a whining mess his emotions are everywhere, and he has little to offer the story but his birthright The story is written in first person divided between two people one per chapter.Makes for a confusing read especially if you happen to lay the book down for awhile you forget who s head you are in I m sure the switch in characters would not have been too jarring if the characters didn t change when in Ansyn s head he s a whining, complaining mess, but when in Inea s head he becomes powerful, almost a well rounded character And vice versa Not recommended to Young adults below 18 the story is 15 16 age range but the sex is graphic Not recommended for people who aren t
