This is one of the best M/M books that I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
It takes a character, that really should be unlikeable, and turns him into a character that you understand, and feel for.
The author also has a wonderful talent of bringing you into the world she's written and letting you experience it, as the characters do. It's not a pretty, perfect world, and you can almost smell the dirt and gunpowder that she writes about.
I want more by this author, and I want it quickly. I'm not very good at being patient when the writing is of this high quality.
