Overview

Nor Iron Bars a Cage by Kaje Harper

First I was a sorcerer. Then I was a hermit. For so long, I put up not just walls but whole stone bunkers to keep everyone out, emotionally and physically. I was protected from people, from ghosts, from specters real and imagined. I was safe, but alone. Then Tobin came along, out of my past, with a summons that he wouldn't let me ignore. I tried my best to resist, but Tobin never believed in walls

About the Author

I've been writing as long as I can remember (which is longer than I like to admit). I started creating M/M romances in high-school, filling binders with stories about what Starsky and Hutch really did on their days off. (Pretty PG-rated stuff - we're talking sheltered fourteen-year-old here. I was into the romantic possibilities.) Any potential writing career got side-tracked by forays into art, psychology, teaching, and a biomedical profession. And the challenges of raising children.When I took up the keyboard again it was just for fun, writing books for my own entertainment. At about manuscript seven, my epically patient spouse told me that if I was going to spend that much time at it, I should try to get published. And he kept saying it, loudly, until I submitted one. And it was accepted! Life Lessons was published May 2011 by MLR Press. A first short story, And to All a Good Night - Life Lessons 1.5, that follows it was soon made available here, and the Life Lessons series is now complete at four MLR Press novels and three free short stories. I've been delighted by the reception my work has received, and I have other books and short stories in print. If you want a short, free taste of my work that stands alone, consider "Like the Taste of Summer", also available here.My very first Smashwords book, Lies and Consequences, started as a kind of reaction after the November 2010 elections when the DADT repeal looked like it might be derailed. Then I was caught by surprise as I finished the book in December and the repeal passed. I tweaked it by upping the action, and deemphasizing the DADT subplot. The result was something lightweight, but hopefully fun. So I put it out as a free read. I hope you enjoy it. I really appreciate reviews - what you liked and what you didn't. Maybe your comments will help turn the next good book into a better book. KH

This was exceptional!! The story line was amazing, the characters wonderful and easy to connect to. I found no grammatical errors (and if there were any, I was too caught up in the story to really notice!) There were never any parts where I stopped and wondered, "Wait, what was happening?" Or "what is this??" Everything was explained and written in a way that was believable and... well, lets just say I having NOTHING bad to say about it!! I am DEFINITELY reading more from this author!! I wish she would write more fantasy, because this story has officially made me hooked on the genre.

A compelling story that will pull at your heartstrings.  I love many of the works of this author.

It was fun but strangely not one female character. Only the local woman that said she'd watch his house while he was gone. I get that it's m/m, but really? No female soldiers, sorcerers, advisors, royalty, ghosts, or even servants in this world, beyond passing mentions about a wife here or there? Even those mentions the women only existed in the context of belonging to men (mother or wife or daughter of a man) never for something for themselves. Weird. Really weird.

My initial selection of this book was due to the fact that I thought it might be interesting but, once I read the first few lines, my interest was severely lost.

This story was phenomenal. The author definitely should write more in the fantasy genre, because she clearly has a gift with writing fantasy settings (and fantasy is my favorite thing to read - do you even know how hard it is to find LGBTQ novels in this genre?) Kaje, I don't know if you read these reviews, but if you do, I just want you to know that this story really hit home with me. In years past, I, like the main character, struggled with self-harm, so I connected with him on all sorts of levels. Mrs Harper, you truly have a gift for writing, and I dearly, dearly hope you'll continue to release free novels like this every now and then. Cheers!

This freebie is m/m. Not a typical fantasy or typical romance book of any sort. Yes, it has magic and ghosts and kingdoms and such, but is ia fresh and new - I have not read this story before and none of it felt like a rehash of previous books. Lyon is a scarred man, inside and out, but there is sensitivity and honesty in the handling of him. Tobin is a man very comfortable with who he is a with who he loves. The writing was clear - giving enough information in history and politics to move the story forward without bogging it down too much. The love scenes were sexy, but were more about loving than just sex. I recommend this... I really enjoyed reading it and like any good book, I felt satisfied when I put it down, but I wanted more.
