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!
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.Read more ›
