Editorial Reviews

Jason Thompson
Tina Anderson writes challenging yaoi. Not for her are light, cheery stories of schoolboys declaring eternal love, of stepbrothers awkwardly living together, of sensitive old oyaji-ukes finding hot sweaty love with some young stud(ent). The two main characteristics of her work are her intricately researched historical settings (...) and the dark streak that runs through her work, a black air of regret and tragedy and hopeless loves.
Rain on the Roof
The artwork is beautifully done and moves the story with strong expression and crisp, gorgeous historical detail. [...] This was an enjoyable read and definitely worth a look if gritty historical drama is your thing.
Kimberly Saunders
The art is well done and the characters refreshingly different from those normally encountered in Boy's Love. (...) a unique mix of pointy faced bishounen Chinese and unidealised Western types (...) The angst is adult in nature, with the mature Callahan and his associates worldliness and experience providing a stark contrast to the youthful, poignantly twisted innocent existence that is Jun.

    Beautiful Book

    Art is fixed, pages were too small to read-but looked Monday and they were fine. Waiting for second volume, great american yaoi read.
