READ Transformation

Ng world from the ravages of demons Seyonne has made peace with his fate With strict self discipline he forces himself to exist only in the present moment and to avoid the pain of hope or caring about anyone But from the moment he i I was truly shocked to read the other reviews and realize that many perceived this as the ueer book that didn t I write gay fiction myself and read tons of it It never even occurred to me in reading this that they might be gay or should be for that matterI think what makes this one of The Best CharacterRelationship books I ve ever read is that it doesn t muddle the issue with lust and sex Bravo to Ms Berg for accomplishing it because it s harder to pen such a poignant relationship when you don t have the catalyst and commonality of physical desire That these two men could come from such different realities and the worst kind of power imbalance and forge such a deep meaningful friendship is what I find so moving about them and the book I had no complaints about the plot or worldbuilding They could be better I don t doubt impressive Honestly I m glad they weren t When I need a dose of sheer emotional connection I come back to this book and read only the parts that show their developing relationship I d be sorry if that weren t so well developed if there was less of it to enjoy I think a physical relationship would have cheapened it And removed some of the character depth that came from their relationships with others specifically Aleksander s with the woman his father picked for himThis book is so very satisfying both as a fantasy and as a picture of what matters so much in life

Transformation

S sold to the arrogant careless Prince Aleksander the heir to the Derzhi Empire Seyonne's uneasy peace begins to crumble And when he discovers a demon lurking in the Derzhi court he must find hope and strength in a most unlikely pla Don t think Don t wonder Just go Just do What comes comes and you will survive it or not This was my first book by Carol Berg and it s a perfect example of not judging a book by its cover Seriously just overlook the cheesy cover and dive into this book There are memorable characters unlikely journeys both physical and emotional and plenty of feels along the way This book had me from the very first paragraph and never let go Although it s the first book in a trilogy it s almost presented as a self contained story meaning readers can choose to stop here since there is no cliffhanger ending But why would anyone want to do that I personally plan to follow Seyonne and Aleksander wherever they may lead

Carol Berg ´ 1 SUMMARY

Seyonne is a man waiting to die He has been a slave for sixteen years almost half his life and has lost everything of meaning to him his dignity the people and homeland he loves and the Warden's power he used to defend an unsuspecti Fantasy There s this guy and he has wings and he s beensold into slavery And this prince buys him I can t really remember But the one guy totally has wings And lots of man angstMy absolute biggest complaint about this book is that after hundreds of pages of foreplay the prince and his slave do not actually confess their manly love for each other and get married But they very nearly do so maybe that ll be enough for the rest of you The slave sleeps at the foot of the prince s bed They have very strong feelings for each other They fight demons and then have some sort of an Ezzarian mind meld But no sex It s possible they don t realize they re gay Someone should really tell themOne star because after all these years I can t remember what the book was about but I still feel like it lead me on Also the writing was swampy with adjectives

    Fantasy There's this guy and he has wings and he's beensold into slavery And this prince buys him I can't really remember But the one guy totally has wings And lots of man angstMy absolute biggest complaint about this book is that after hundreds of pages of foreplay the prince and his slave do not actually confess their manly love

    This was very unusual The author had a lot of guts to start with a character so powerfully unlikable that the reader wants to kill him on the spot and then try to redeem him in our eyes despite her giving us in detail his most hateful and despicable features of his character It was good having a main character in whom we could give over our trust and that held the reader above water in the most difficult circumstances I had never heard of
