Overview

Brute leads a lonely life in a world where magic is commonplace. He is seven and a half feet of ugly, and of disreputable descent. No one, including Brute, expects him to be more than a laborer. But heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and when he is maimed while rescuing a prince, Brute's life changes abruptly. He is summoned to serve at the palace in Tellomer as a guard for a single prisoner. It sounds easy but turns out to be the challenge of his life.

Rumors say the prisoner, Gray Leynham, is a witch and a traitor. What is certain is that he has spent years in misery: blind, chained, and rendered nearly mute by an extreme stutter. And he dreams of people's deaths-dreams that come true.

As Brute becomes accustomed to palace life and gets to know Gray, he discovers his own worth, first as a friend and a man and then as a lover. But Brute also learns heroes sometimes face difficult choices and that doing what is right can bring danger of its own.

You come to love Brute so much

This wonderful novel set in a world of magic and fantasy but is itself a simple story about kindness and true love. Never does it feel rushed or the characters false. Even the main love story is slowly built on as you get to know our beloved hero Brute and his tragic love Gray. Be prepared to cry your eyes out as you fall in love with this tale of a "monster" and his prisoner.

What a wonderful book! I generally don't "feel-good" movies or stories all that interesting. I expected this book to being something of a drama/romance, which it is, but in part, at least, it certainly was a "feel-good" story for me -- and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It never got mushy or maudlin or corny. It was, I thought, a very creative and still quite credible take on how a deep connection might develop from a most unlikely meeting of two somewhat tragic souls. Good story, aided by the tiniest bit of magic, good characters, good dialogue, and on the whole, a very good read.
