Under the Rushes book. Sometimes I love, love, love Amy Lane's books and other times I find them harsh reading with the angst levels ramped up way to high. That's what happened for me with this one, I just couldn't read anymore about Dorjan's constant sacrifice and most especially Areau's never-ending need for sexual pain. I got to about page 50 and skimmed the rest of it.

When Dorjan reappears in his life, Taern is both captured by his commitment to justice and terrified by the risks he takes.

Guess I'm a bit late to read this, seeing as it's been published for over five years now. This was my first Amy Lane story and I must say, I liked it ... a lot. It has shades of Assassin's Creed (the video game), Batman & Robin (their trials together), a tiny bit of 'Armageddon' (the movie) ... and I'm a movie buff (as is the author, if you read the biography at the end of this novel) so what's there not to like?! The beginning is dark: the M/Cs dealing with struggles not of their making ... well, sort of ... it's what can happen when you 'go against the grain' and are punished for it. As much as I liked her world building, at times, there was too much and I must admit, I got a bit distracted by the animal names. This is not an M/M where the M/Cs are all angsty and conflicted about who they are ... what's been done to their lives - yes - but not their natures ... which I found refreshing. The main focus is on the M/Cs (three of them) and those that surround them ... all well developed and missed when the novel ended (and yes, it ends ... there is no further story, which is refreshing). I liked the niskets, the vision of the asteriods ... this book would be well developed into a graphic novel. Some things I would have like to have read more about ... the overall conflict seemed a bit in the background when compared to the in-depth of the M/Cs ... the resolution was quick and efficient, maybe too so. But overall, this was a wonderful novel and one I will read again.

This author has a a brilliant imagination and a solid feel for the heart. This story is is set in a Universe I have never seen before. It is sort of steam punk with with mechanical devices called rabbits , crickets and centipedes for locomotion, sort of old England with Estates for growing food in the country and a gentry Parliament in the city and a bit SciFi with with asteroids tethered and mined with the the assistance of symbiotic alien bugs. Whoa! I am impressed just with the world she has created.

And of course Amy Lanes characters are always so rich you just fall in love with them. Dorjan is a gentry son who joins the military and looses his innocence when he sees innocent civilians killed for political, economic gain while a very different story is being told at home.

Dorjan and his inventor friend Areau are physically and emotionally injured in this event and its fallout. Their relationship becomes twisted with Areau handing out punishment and Dorjan taking the blame.

Meanwhile with Areau's inventions and assistance Dorjan becomes a vigilante hero protecting the poor and downtrodden against the corrupt elite and roaming gangs. Dorjan is also a member of the elite government where he does more good pretending to be an idiot than bringing up honest problems that the ruling elite do not want to face.

Dorjan and Areau have a pretty dark life until a boy named Taern reappears in their life. He is the rent boy with the heart of gold and he can't stand to see Dorjan giving so much and taking so little. But even as Taern brings light to Dorjan's life the corruption and greed of the elite make things darker and more dangerous.

Many parallels to the evils of our world have crept into Amy Lane's universe here but in the end heart and intelligence win out. This is not a sweet Christmas story but it will stick with you a lot longer.

I feel mean criticizing this, because Amy Lane is one of my favorite authors, and she has done a wonderful job with the things that she always does well. She has created memorable, unique, well-rounded characters in complex relationships. It is dark, but it needs to be.

Now comes the hard part, since this is a writer I like a lot, and one who I know enjoys writing fantasy. The world building is weak. There are lots of interesting details, but without a lot of underlying logic and structure. I'm guessing here, but I'm sort of thinking that her editor is not really used to editing science fiction/fantasy, since a lot of what's bothering me is probably fairly fixable, not integral faults in the novel. The plot issues are fairly minor, and mostly related to the world building. And the weak world structure surprises me since this is a writer who has a very vivid and successful sense of place in her contemporary romances. This book works as a romance, not as SFF, and it is a pity, since that kind of character building and development in a successful SFF framework would turn a book I enjoyed into one of the best I've read in a decade.

Wow, this was a great book! Different from Amy's contemporary and Paranormal stories, and oh so good. I've seen it referred to as Steam Punk, but I got more of a fantasy feeling than Steam Punk. Which worked just fine. We get an undercover hero, lots of damaged characters, healing, sacrifice, and love. As usual, the writing is beautiful, I swear I could tell and Amy Lane book even if I didn't see her name on it.... her writing is so strong and passionate, her characters are always deep, and frequently damaged. But the healing and love is always worth the tears I shed.

Get out the tissue, you will need it with this story!

I've read most of Amy Lane's work and each time I review it, I comment on how dark and angsty the characters are and I complain that I feel too many emotions at the end. Well, this is more of the same. However, the story is rather different from her normal tropes and different to what I generally read. This is a sort of historical fantasy - steampunk Batman and Robin thing. Tortured hero, tortured sidekick... Only "Robin" provides the bright spot here.

BDSM, non-consensual, violence... on my

This is really a 3.5 review. While the story kept me interested I was ambivalent about the (spoiler alert) forced rape. Although Amy attempted to justify it it was still disturbing as it went on for 10 years. I also was disturbed by the death of one of the MC just as he was redeemed.
