More About the Author

My current project is the Dark Tales of Randamor the Recluse series. By now there are several volumes. Not certain if you want to invest that much time and money in a long, epic series? Individual book samples too short? To help you decide the first twelve chapters (60,000+ words) of Bonds of Hate, the first book, are online as a free read:
I started writing in January 2009, mainly gay, m/m, slash, yaoi stories. I suppose, with a few exceptions, I should call them novels really.
I have no great literary ambitions. I just tell stories, and I try to do it as good as I can, hoping other people will enjoy reading them.
Most of them have explicit scenes in them, often of a rather kinky nature. But they're only the raisins in the pudding, because -- as I already said -- I actually enjoy telling stories. That means there always is a plot, or, more often, several plots.
I love exploring what makes people tick, what makes them do the often quirky things they do. Also, I enjoy playing with expectations, boundaries, taboos even.
I'm a self publisher by choice.

A DISH SERVED COLD is one of those stories that can push buttons with the readers. For me it pushed all the right buttons. At the foundation of this world there's a slavery system that is born from trying to do good but gradually disintegrated into a full-fledged game of corrupt power play. It challenged my morals, it engaged a spectrum of emotions and from start to finish the author held me riveted to the pages what was to befall the main protag; Andrew.

Andrew was a normal teenager of fifteen years old; hormones raging, spending all his time with a few good friends and living a privileged life of the rich. Even though it all started a bit as an easy-to-read coming of age story where crushes and struggles were the main events, it slowly turned more serious and edgier. Andrew was confronted with problems that challenged his own outlook on life and I was fascinated by the internal dilemma's it presented. As the story progressed he grew in to a character of depth because what was right and what was wrong? I love complex characters or situations and Andrew Ashling definitely searched for the boundaries.

Personally, I don't think I will forget chapter ten anytime soon. In it a conversation took place that conveyed such details that it shocked my emotions in an uproar of anger and fear. I was preparing for a lot but the author managed to deliver a surprising plot point which kept me on the edge of my seat. The authors writing and characters kept me immersed in all that was going on and felt. Because, whether friend or foe, each character added a distinct voice to the overall story.

I thought the budding romance intense and in the end well rounded but I could have used more one on one time between Andrew and his love interest.

As a previous reviewer said on here, a book can sometimes push just the right buttons with a reader. This is one such book. It starts out as a what may seem like the usual case of unrequited love with Andrew trying to work out the age-old 'is he or isn't he' of his friend Sean. But this story then goes way beyond that; I lost count of the many 'wow' moments as the next parts of the plot unfolded.

Set in a brutal era some time in the future where the softness of love is intertwined with the harshness of slavery it managed to bring a whole host of feelings to the fore. There is the odd moment of titillation, then those where you feel as though you shouldn't really be titillated; then some graphic descriptions of acts of inhumanity that some readers may wish had not been laid out quite so clearly but, in the end, this is needed to wrap you up completely in the story you are being told. Nothing, in my opinion, is redundant.

As for the final chapter, I was at a bit of a loss at the start (you'll see why if you read it but to tell you now would be a spoiler) but I just had to work out what it was all about. And then the final 4 words - wow.

I really enjoyed this book. I wish I was just starting it.

Okay, let me be blunt. This is a trashy thing to read... In the best way possible.

Believe me or not, this is up to the reader. Do not read if you want pure romance, as it gets relatively smutty without being a porno read.

This book deals with several issues, although most are not present in the real world as we know it... But nothing stops issues such as these arising.

Enjoy this as a piece of pure fiction. For the price, just enjoy it. Not Shakespearean, but doesn`t pretend to be.

As other reviewers have described, this is a very interesting theme and well-constructed. It really makes you think about the society in the past, today and what it could be in the future.

The book starts as a love story - or loveless story - and a boy who needs the special one to share his life. However the book develops to something much more complicated and deeper. This book ends up being more about right and wrong or good and bad things. And in this occasion wrong/bad things are generally accepted.

I still have to agree that story is somehow like reading someone describing/ telling about Andrew's life and events rather than living these moments. This is the second book I read from this author and I guess this is his style and I'm just not too keen on it.

Not to mention that the very end is totally confusing... even with the nice idea.
