Love of Affairs #1
The author has a really unique and different way of writing that brings in different genres while not confusing the reader but instead, making the reader excited to turn the page to see how a scene is going to play out and how the plot thickens. She is able to mix what seems to be historical (from falling out of a tree and waking in a different time), sci-fi / fantasy (strange realm he has found himself in), and romance (wanting to puruse the young maiden). I started out reading this book thinking I would simply be filling in any possible holes from the other book in this set (This is the first book in the Love of Affairs series, the first book Fairly Safe by Deborah Ann Davis.
You can find my review, here. ) . And although these two books could be read as stand-a-lones, I prefer and recommend reading them together simply because they are both pretty good reads (sort of like reading Nancy Drew books- all stand-a-lones but awesome as a series in order). I really like how she did Petir. He is from a different cut of cloth. He's the cute guy who is really smart and nerdy. As to not give any spoilers, the one negative thing I have to say about this book is the explanation of the character Petir. It felt unsettled and rubbed me the wrong way. However, that said, I did enjoy this read and would recommend it.
