Passion Of The Different

Adult
Rated 4.50/5 based on 8 reviews
Amnesia robbing him of all identity and found by Myra, it's clearly evident he isn't of her people. As exotic to her as she is to him, will culture differences be too much for their growing passion? Or will Queen Darya successfully steal what no peasant should have? Torn by subterfuge and conflict, his choices may have little bearing as the forgotten past catches up. More

Review by: Bitsem on Feb. 10, 2011 :
I was gifted this book by the author, although I don't know him. I always put that in the review, even though it doesn't change my opinions on books.

Daniel has crafted a great world for us to be a part of. (Although we are left guessing as to where this world is.) I found the characters believable and relatable. I love that although Ryan could have always tried to rely of physical prowess, he was also capable of using his mind. No dumb as a stone hero here!

There is a bit of romance and passion in the book, but it isn't the only focus of the book. For me it was a good balance of fantasy, adventure and romance. I love that the main character, although he lost his memory, had an instinctive respect for women. His physical differences from the rest of the population brought an interesting angle to his interactions. The heroine manages to be both strong and vulnerable without being annoying. That's not always easy to convey.

The only downside for me, was that sometimes the changes in plot were a bit jarring. They fit into the story well, but I found myself having to stop and change gears once in awhile. I also feel that some of the hero's "lies of omission" will come back to bite him in the rear later, and that annoys me. (I'm a horrible liar, so am usually brutally honest.) Their relationship is strong enough to withstand the truth, but possibly not if it comes from outside sources. That really is the only thing that stopped me from giving it a 5 star review. The ending definitely left me anxious to check out the rest of Daniel's books.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy or romance. It fits easily within either and both genres.

This is a copy of the review that I left on Amazon.

I enjoyed Passion of the Different, it is a very unique story. The character development was good as well as the world building. The discoveries, adventures and dilemmas in this world really drew me in. I loved the way you started the book and Ryan was very lucky that Myra found him first. And the ending, what can I say except I am interested in how things turn out!

Daniel's passion and talent glows throughout the entire story giving the reader a vivid feel and visual sense of each flowing word and moment. Each scene was so beautifully written I was mentally part of the story, feeling the emotion even to tears. Incredible job. I predict we will see Daniel A. Roberts on the Best Seller List soon!

I really enjoyed this book. The plot is full of twists and turns, and it leaves you guessing. This book ran the full gambit of human emotions, from triumphant love to blazing fury! I am really looking forward to Daniel's next book, esp after the turn this takes at the end! Thanks to Daniel for allowing me to work on the cover art.

5 stars from me.

I've done it, without a problem.
I've read this book in one go, unable to put it down.

How to character this book ?
It has it's twists, it's exotic places, words/language, it's plots, it's erotic scenes, it's jokes (some made me laugh so much I had to wait 5 minutes before I could read on)
There all in place, in the right spot.

The plot has it's twists, and sudden unsuspected changes.
Daniel keeps surprising it's reader, putting them on the wrong foot.

I'm sorry the rating has only 5 stars, because after reading chapter one, I thought is deserved a 5 star.

Having read the whole book, I'm convinced a 5 star rating still isn't good enough to rate this book.
I'll give it 10 stars!

And this is just the beginning.

Can't wait till the next book

Daniel, you keep amazing me ;)

Just finished the first chapter, I'm hooked.

Daniel has created the scene, with figures that are intriguing and fascinating at the same time.

They way he is describing the scene and personal feelings of the one in focus is done very well.

I've been suffering from Amnesia myself, I know what it was like, the fear, questions, etc. Daniel hits the nail right on the spot.
I'm already eager to read chapter two, I know I want to read this story, right to the end.

Job well done Daniel, you have you first addict ;)
