This series is the cat's meow and dog's bark and the ram's bahhhaah…all that shit and more…It's not going to be for everyone…but damn, it should be. I think so, anyway. The format is crazy, and it (for me) may be part of what makes it so good…that, and the amazing and intricate plot. Nothing is off limits in this series.
I read this both from a hardcover book (that my daughter bought me for Christmas) and a Kindle eBook that I borrowed from the library at the same time. I'm so glad that I did it this way. Because…the eBook is good for low lighting and when I was at work, seriously though, that book is lug…and the actual lug of a book is perfect for those pages with small, teeny tiny pictures/documents and such on them. I flipped back and forth between the two constantly. I also used an Audible credit for the Audiobook of Gemina, which I plan to listen to right before Obsidio comes out in March, 2018.
⇝Will I continue this series⇜ Damn Straight!!!
An excellent original work from Avoliot on AO3, could not put this one down. Prince Kiem is hurried into a marriage with Count Jainan to preserve the treaty between their two planets. Keim puts Jainan's subdued manner down to the fact that he is still in mourning for his partner Prince Taam who recently died in a flybug accident.

'He had no idea why Jared wanted what he did from Jensen. He was just a used up sex toy that had grown a soul.'
