I've read this series so many times and yet it never fails to make me smile. Thank you Ann for writing wonderful, captivating tales. I hope someday you will receive all the recognition you deserve.
I just want to share the reason for why I'm re-reading this for the 3rd or 4th time(...has actually lost count XD) I started reading Lynn Flewelling's "Nightrunner" series which is really action pack but was getting a little frustrated at the lack of intimacy between the main characters. Bluntly, I just can't find many other writers in the genre (m/m fantasy) who have such a lovely writing style with the perfect balance of story and sex. This should definitely be taken as a compliment :)
Thank you again! Sorry this is not much of a proper review. I'll try to do better next time.
