I don't think I would normally have picked up something like this - I am female and straight. I mainly read this because it is written by the author of "Metanoia" online comic, which is my favourite thing to read on a Sunday. What grabbed me is not so much the fact that the book depicts the relationship of two men (although men is a too-grown-up concept to use for the characters). It was the depth of feeling that jumped at me, which rings true whether you are gay or straight. Also, the fantasy is not half-bad, but it was the drama that tugged at my heart-strings most. Whether you are looking for a good fantasy read or an unconventional love story, you will not be disapointed.

As you may have guessed, I utterly ADORED this book. Yes, I've been told it's self-published - however, I completely forgot about that while I was reading. I think there were two typos (that I caught) throughout the book. TWO. As opposed to the maddening dozens one usually finds. So my hat off to whoever did the editing, as it's good enough to be main-streamed published.

But to the book itself. I'm new to the boy-love genre - in fact, 'The God Eaters' was my very first m/m book EVER. And I was not dissapointed. Leaving aside the touching, completely un-pornographic romance, the story alone was amazing. Fantasy personified. Other reviewers explain the plotline, so I won't - but everything has an explanation. Everything in Hakicek's world WORKS - it makes sense, in a strange, fantasy-mindset kind of way.

The characters are realistic and life-like, completely three-dimensional (something I'm coming to realise is a rarity in boy-love novels) and you can't help falling in love with them. Kieran and Ashes make the perfect couple, even if they've got their problems (which mostly involve people trying to kill them). Keiran's tortured past has made him hard and strong (and he'll gut you if you show him pity) but he's also incredibly protective and loving once the adorably sweet and intelligent Ash manages to get past his barriers. Yes, it's pretty clear-cut from the start who's going to play dom and who plays sub, but that doesn't translate into their relationship much - Ashes book-smarts make him equal to Kieran's sheer ability to survive, and by the end of the book their magic is also at the same level. Which is great, beacuse too often authors seem to make the ukes really timid and submissive, so it was fun to find one who could stand up for himself - as well as a seme that let him!

Hmm. I could go on for hours, but I think you'd get bored, and no one would read to the end. Just BUY THE BOOK! It's well worth the price!

Fantasy at it should be, not another post-Tolkien rehash. Here we have an unusual, alternate western setting, where the native in an imaginary westen continent possess psi talent that an oppressive, racist "Theocracy" tries to exploit torturing prisoners in a special detention facility. Fate throws in the same cell the apparently ruthless assassin Kieran and the intellectual idealist and political dissident Ashleigh. The two couldn't be more different: stern and harsh the first, gentle and somewhat naive the second.Both are tortured by theocracy experimenters, and bot turn out to be gay. Both personalities change during the detention, escape and fight for freedom, and as they fall in love with each other, a startingly weird reality becomes manifest. This is a very peculiar fantasy, with parasite gods and a bizarre humanity. One couldn't help feeling touched by the protagonists complex personalities and their love. This is also a love story, not a "gay love story", a "Love story", period.

"God Eaters" is easily one of the best books I've read this year. The story takes place in a punksteam desert environment, very reminescent of the American West in its pioneer days, which in itself is a welcome change from all the Tolkienesque/Celtic dime-a-dozen fantasy worlds out there. This world is ruled by the relentless Theocracy, devoted to a harsh and judgemental God (think Christian Right at its most extreme, and you'll get what I mean). The Gods of the conquered native population have all been destroyed... or so it seems at first.

At first glance, the two main characters seem to be as unlike as can possibly be. Ashleigh Trine is a gentle, intellectual rebel; Kieran Trevarde a cynical, embittered outlaw. But there is steel beneath Ash's shyness and Kieran turns out to have far more of a heart than anyone, including himself, suspected. Meeting as prisoners on the way to a reputedly escape-safe prison, the book follows their trials and adventures as they grow into friendship, escape from prison and flee into the wilderness pursued by the Theocracy's soldiers. The story is constantly thrilling, with several neat twists and unexpected turns, but what I loved most about the book was how Ash and Kieran grow up along the road - Ash finding self-confidence and courage, Kieran learning to trust another person. And yes, they fall in love. The feelings that grow between them, blossoming into a strong, abiding love, are so tenderly and sensitively written that I defy anyone to be offended by their relationship. I'm a straight female myself, and I found their romance to be the best part of the book - which is saying a lot for a story as well-written as this one.

The finale was spectacular, and the epilogue definitely leaves openings for a sequel.
