Overview

Symbols have power...

Aren Montrell has heard tales of the Oestend wraiths - mysterious creatures which come in the night and kill anyone who's not indoors. Aren's never had reason to believe the stories, but when he takes a job as a bookkeeper on the BarChi, a dusty cattle ranch on the remote Oestend prairie, he soon learns that the wraiths are real. Aren suddenly finds himself living in a supposedly haunted house and depending on wards and generators to protect him from unseen things in the night. As if that's not enough, he has to deal with a crotchety old blind woman, face "cows" that look like nothing he's ever seen before, and try to ignore the fact that he's apparently the most eligible bachelor around.

Aren also finds himself the one and only confidante of Deacon, the BarChi's burly foreman. Deacon runs the BarChi with an iron fist and is obviously relieved to finally have somebody he can talk to. As their relationship grows, Aren learns there's more to Deacon and the BarChi than he'd anticipated. Deacon seems determined to deny both his Oestend heritage and any claim he may have to the BarChi ranch, but if Aren is to survive the perils of Oestend, he'll have to convince Deacon to stop running from the past and finally claim everything that's his.

    Wins over even non-fantasy fans.

    Imagine a m/m romance set on one of the lawess outer planets in Firefly. That's the mood & tenor of this book which also has shades of Deadwood. Much of the book felt familar as I am a long-time western fan. The fantasy elements are subtle & well-used. Sexton is my favorite m/m writer. My personal tastes prefer her contemporaries (promises is my alltime fav m/m romance); however this converted me to this subgenre and i eagerly await the next in the series.

    Fascinating Worldbuilding

    I loved the book, the world that she created and the characters that she peopled it with. I loved it so much that as soon as I finished it, I read it again. This is a book that I will be reading and reading again for years because the pairings works, but most importantly, they work within the scope of the world of Oestend, a world that echoes both the Australian Outback and the open Plains of the USA's west. The BDSM is totally believable between the characters, not just a decorative add-on, and the characters themselves have depth and are believable. Read it, you won't regret it.

    Unexpectedly amazing!

    I've written most of everything this author has published, but by in large, since Promises (her first, and in my opinion best book!) I've found most of it to be well-written and absolutely average. This book was none of that. It's a fascinating mix of sci-fi, romance, western, and keep you on the edge of your seat blockbuster movie. It's absolutely worth every penny. If you're in doubt, pick this novel up!

    A wonderful Read - Recommend!

    I absolutely love this book! The characters are well rounded and perfect for one another. The world the book is set in felt vivid and real and the fantasy element was done to perfection. I'm about to buy a copy of this in paperback too!
