"I have never read anything by Keva and I must admit, I was mysteriously seduced by this book. The prose is clear and he character development is excellent. Most important is that it is a new kind of M/M novel." Amos Lassen

My Take on the Book
This is a well written story that will keep you turning from beginning to end. I am currently about half through the book and cannot put it down. What I like thus far is how well the author develops the characters within the book itself. Also, the book has a ton of twists and turns that you would not expect at first and a romantic undertone that underlies quite a bit of the plot. Though I am not done yet, I will be soon, and if the rest is anything like the first half I know that it will be great! I highly recommend this to all!
