The Review: Let me be clear. Science fiction/fantasy is not my thing. But I was lured to this book because the protagonist is gay, a brave decision by the author given the genre but one which he pulls off perfectly. In not making Ethan’s sexuality the book’s issue, Cosgrove makes his own contribution to equality.
This is a page turner that always entertains but beneath that is something truthful, something human, and Cosgrove’s writing is imbued with a sensitivity that renders certain moments beautiful. Furthermore, in creating a book where characters are neither good nor bad, he injects realism into fantasy.
The Verdict: Cosgrove succeeds in making his fantasy delightfully accessible to this reader.
