Today I am doing a partial review of Sacred Fate by Eresse.
In the dual-gendered realm of Ylandre, the great divide between the high-born True Bloods and the lower-ranked Half Bloods is deemed impassable by most. Rohyr Essendri dared to cross it when he took young Lassen Idana from his provincial town and made him his paramour. Lassen perforce learned how to navigate the intricate byways of life at court. What he never expected, however, was to fall in love with Rohyr, a most inadvisable and impractical thing to do when one’s lover is sovereign ruler of the land. But anything worth having is worth fighting for, both figuratively and, as Lassen discovers, literally speaking.
I started really liking this book, then the dumbass Ardan (fancy title for King), goes and marries the wrong person. And as you can tell from the book jacket, there’s no warning. I think there should have been a warning. Now in all fairness I am only on chapter 9 of 25, but this had me wanting to abandon the book. The only reason I’m still reading it is I hope there is some redemption, and because I stupidly bought the rest of the books in the series before reading this one.
Let’s hope the book can still be redeemed.
