Product Description

Product Description

Anaxantis, prince of Ximerion.

Is the strain becoming too much?

The threat of a barbarian invasion is imminent now, and the resources to organize the defense meager, to say the least. Moreover, the high king, father of the princes, begins to worry that one of his intrepid sons might do irreparable damage to the kingdom by provoking a force, greater than they can handle. Then there is the tortured relationship between Anaxantis and Ehandar...

Luckily for him, queen Emelasuntha, his mother, has Anaxantis's back. But will it be enough?

A lot of new characters, each with their own story, appear on the stage. Young pages, some cute, some haughty and arrogant, a mysterious, barbarian prince and a ruthless baron are just a few of them.
Between all the turmoil of a country in upheaval, there is still room for love, tenderness, and laughter.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Invisible Chains 4 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very long story and sometimes a bit boring but it had to be read or you would've missed the story . I read all of the story and when I think about the story I was pleased that I had and with my imagination I could imagine the hero.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a good romance but I'd warn them about the length of the story and not to miss any of the story as I was expecting a different ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good start to the series. 27 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Got start to the series that holds the reader's interest. Still not sure about the narrator but intriging.
Some of the dialogue does not ring true but in general well written.

This series has given me so many sleepless nights. I could not put it down. Please see my reviews for books 1 and 3. I finished the series and I really want to go see Randamor myself and hear all his tales!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent complex fantasy 29 May 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read all sorts of different books from the best selling authors to first time authors. Andrew Ashling's storytelling abilities definitely belong up there with the bestsellers.My emotions run all over the place when I read his books. At 7000 locations for $2.99 you can't get entertainment like this. I would recommend this series for everyone to read but it is not easy reading. There is lots of violence, rape and torture. I have a thing for violence. Spartacus, the series on Starz,is my favorite T.V. show!! If your looking for m/m fantasy fluff romance this is NOT it. If you like complex stories with bite this is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continuing the Angst Ridden Saga 1 July 2012
By Taylor - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
More of the same between Anaxantis and Ehandar- no resolution in sight- just more continuation of the exploitation of Ehandar by Anaxantis. *sigh* While their interaction is my favorite of the series, it is still tragically painful. You can't help hoping beyond hope that they will find a resolution.

I finished the next two books in the series and found much improvement as the story moves forward. By the fourth book, "Invisible Hands 1", I found myself reading the entire book without skipping. In that book, he introduces new characters but they held my interest and he didn't overwhelm us with so many at a time like in previous books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely loving this series!!! 29 April 2012
By L - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So in my review for book 1, I gushed over the plot, how intricate, solid and engrossing it was.

Let's talk about the writing in the review for this book.

(Oh, first I want to mention that I think this is the book where Ryhunzo is introduced? Love him SO much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read the books, you'll see why.) ;-)

Anyway, the writing. The author must have done a lot of historical research because there's a wealth of detail in the books from the type of architecture found in a medieval society to the type of clothes and armor they'd wear. The world building is also very impressive. Each city, country and region has a detailed and intricate history that's referenced as part of the plot.

The politicking and scheming is totally engrossing and totally believable. I'm just so impressed with how the author juggles this many main and secondary characters. They all have their place and function and they all work beautifully in their context.

Really, so impressed with this series. This is a must read.
