What a delightful story! Enjoyed every word of it! The only thing I hate about it is that it's over.I couldn't find any flaw (or if there is any, I've happily ignored it for the contentedness that the story gave me). The story was intricate and detailed, the characters were shaped out and complex. I...

Sometimes I give a meh book three stars because, hey, there's nothing really wrong with it; and other times, I give a great book four stars because it was REALLY GOOD but it could have been amazing. Arbitrary, I know, unfair too, but there we are.The Lodestar of Ys is excellent. It has meaty worldbu...

Bold mix of elements that are diverting and highly entertaining.The worldbuilding is great with a melange of Errol Flynn, LOTR and Peter Pan. I love sailing, so this story immediately made me excited when it turned course during the exploration of the Ys isles. In contrast to Axholme, the militarist...

[¬_¬]) The world development was okay (mainly what was confusing me in the beginning and the names of the characters ...

I loved loved loved this story. Though it should be mentioned to future readers that they have no choice but to marry and fake true love to keep their countries safe is not exactly true and, in fact, the story is not centered in romance, but more in world building and the war around them. Just fanta...

That was seriously wonderful. But waaaay too short. But it was free. So I'm giving it 5 stars. Fantastic UST. Great banter. Awesome characters. God, I just wish there was more of it.

An interesting fantasy. I liked the characters, and the world building, but was a little frustrated by the stale sexual dynamics. A bit too much like a het romance in that aspect for me. It didn't ruin the story for me, but it was a bit trite. It made me glad that the sexual and romantic aspects wer...

like an awesome bedtime story as you're falling asleep: over before you want it to be.What hurly-burly this story was! Filled with beautiful imagery and wit and smexy interludes—honestly, I was in love and in rageface extremis all at once.Because it was too good. I wanted to linger—everywhere—but wa...

Absolutely wonderful. The author manages to create a very involving fantasy universe, with distinct cultures, complex geopolitical conflicts, an array of memorable side characters, 17 different wedding ceremonies (for the same couple), high-skies adventure, and a relationship that evolves over close...
