by J. C. Owens
Guhhhhhhhh,Okay this book was hot. The plot was interesting, the world J.C. Owens created was easy to fall into, the main character, Gaven, was sympathetic and sweetly naive. His father was/is a first class prick. Vlar, the 'love' or maybe lust interest is suitably intriguing. I thoroughly enjoyed ...
Sweet and a lot of teasing in this warrior/apprentice tale. Too darn short!
I like this story. We are introduced to a hurt Gaven who has been raised as a peasant almost and finds out he is more than that. He was destined for than just the pittance his lord gave him.

Entertaining little fantasy m/m read..'As we reached the height of the pass, I drew my horse to a halt and stared back down at the panorama below, the land to which I had been born. It was a moment in time; forward was into the unknown, backwards lay pain --- but familiar pain.'
Gaven and the sequelThe Bonding are really one book chipped in two, so that's the way I read it. It has all the classic scenes needed to be readable and enjoyable book in this sub-genre. The secondary characters and are used very well. It is a perfect book for beach reading or travel.

Having met Vlar as a child before, I had certain problems perceiveing him as an adult, and I can't quite get my head arount the concept of finnarian immortality. The bonding scene was just... a bit out there. Otherwise, an entertaining read.
The pacing felt off in this book. Some things took forever to happen and others speed on by. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason to this and many important things that needed to be expanded upon weren't. I did think that the world and characters were interesting but a little more detail would've b...
While the writing is good but I just can't shake the feeling that the romance is not strong enough. There are too many questions in Gaven's mind, that I cannot believe that in the end, he will just accept his "fate". It just doesn't make any sense to me.
