Reviewed on Hearts On Fire The only clue in this small town is the presence of wheat straw at the scene, scarecrow sightings and Myron Mitchell's body rapidly changing into something nightmares are made of. Anoki is a necromancer that has been sent to stop the abductions but soon finds that he must stop Myron too before he transforms into a beast. Anoki is able to manipulate spi Reviewed on Hearts On Fire Anoki is able to manipulate spirits and is about to tie Myron to a demon when the two come to an agreement giving Myron another day before he is bound.
Anoki and Myron work as a team using Anoki's powers and Myron's heightened senses to track down the other necromancer in town. This was one of those books that once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. It's also a book that the reader has to pay attention to because so much is constantly going on that you could easily get lost. I was expecting this story to have a romantic twist to it but there was none which was fine. There was sex but it was just empty screwing. The relationship between Anoki and Myron was interesting to say the least and while there was an emotional spark, Mr.
Gilbert kept the fire out. The story was fast paced and interesting but there was little room for character development. Yes, the story was a good read but it was carried by the action and not by interesting characters.

I am hoping that there will be more character development in the sequel though it will be a little too late. This is a worthwhile book to pick up if you're looking for a complex roller coaster ride with no HEA but a cliff hanger ending. Nov 17, Stephanie rated it really liked it Shelves: mm. This book was unexpectedly amazing and what a page turner. Fast paced, terrifying and I couldn't put it down. Myron is changing into something evil due to a legacy curse that can manifest randomly down the family line. Anoki has come to stop him and solve the disappearances.
The writing was very gripping. Myron is fascinating, I could feel his emotions and struggles when he has a grip on his humanity and when he doesn't. Even though, the book is told from Myron's POV, I slowly got to know Anoki and eventually realized there was much more to him and that something is making him live a lonely life. I was glad when he expressed how he really felt about Myron. The fight scenes were terrifying. I love the book, I love those characters, I can't wait to read the next installment.
I really want to know about Anoki's mother and why every entities and even Anoki is scared of her. There's a sneak peak of the sequel at the end of the book, I really like what I read so far.

That was literally my reaction when I finished.
I even said it out loud, too. Argh, this book. Have no idea what to say. It's weird and deeply complex and all conflicted and it's kind of disjointed, but it gave me chills and I cannot wait for the sequel.

I am, actually, quite rabidly awaiting any further installments. And I know it's very illogical of me, seeing as this book literally almost just came out, but I want the sequel. And I want it now. Why couldn't I have put off reading this for a couple more months like everything else I put in my to-read shelf? If ever there were any star-crossed lovers, then surely it would be Myron and Anoki.

Dec 08, Tangy rated it it was amazing. Reading this again tomorrow before reviewing properly.
Need to give my head some time to unscramble. NOW would be great. Apr 07, Jeff Erno rated it it was amazing Shelves: gay-paranormal. There were two sex scenes in the story, neither of them romantic, and in my opinion, they could have just been left out completely.

The story did not need them because this wasn't a story about a romance. If I had to label it, I'd say Brown-Eyed Devil was a paranormal horror novel that happened to feature a gay protagonist. Arguably it might even be classified as young adult being that it was about a young hero, coming of age. The story is extremely well written and edited, and it's amazingly complex. It's adventurous, fast-paced, and exciting.
It has realistic dialogue, side-splitting humor, and really likable characters. It's the first story I've read in a long time that kept me up all night, and I felt that if this had been a movie, I'd have been on the edge of my seat with almost every scene. The story involves a mystery which is anything but predictable. The ending is a cliffhanger, and at the story's conclusion, I was yearning for more. Don't expect an angsty story about two hot young guys falling in love and having loads of passionate, steamy sex.
This book is a thriller complete with ghosts, demons, and hideous creatures from the pit of hell, with a little bit of sex thrown in. I loved every second of it and eagerly await the next installment.
Guide The Second Trip (Gollancz S.F.)
Almost, but not quite 4 stars. This is not a romance, but a very good paranormal story. Sure, the two main characters are gay, but their mutual attraction has something of predestined quality in it and, apart from a couple of sex scenes, they spend most of the time solving the mystery of disappearances. So, there's hardly any time for a real connection to develop between them.
The story is much better than the other Gilbert's book I've read Blue Diesel v. The God of Sex. The setting is more vi Almost, but not quite 4 stars. The setting is more vivid, the characters have more depth, even if this is, sort of, a setup piece, being the first book in the series. The setting of high school at the beginning of the book, including Myron's friends, seemed especially authentic. Even if some of the dialogue needed some work, this was really a very small part of the book. The world of necromancers, spirits and demons was inventive and it held my interest.
The book ends with a cliffhanger and from the excerpt at the end of it, the sequel will be written from Anoki's point of view this one's told by Myron. It's hard to rate this book, because it's the first in the series and because, while there's nothing really wrong with it, it doesn't have a satisfying conclusion. Sure, the mystery was solved, but view spoiler [Myron's taken to hell and away from the life he knows, Anoki's still attached to the jealous demiurg, not to mention Anoki's mysterious mother who makes even the most powerful demons afraid.
Hopefully, we will not have long to wait for the sequel. I liked finding out why Anoki held the attraction he did for Myron. Myron felt like a different character, and though there were reasons given for this, I would have preferred more of a blend. Anoki's background was revealed and allowed the very convoluted storyline to be tied together pretty cleverly. Some of the demon fighting was a bit 3. Some of the demon fighting was a bit over the top; like a lot of books in this genre, it's best to accept it's going to have extreme battles beyond any suspension of disbelief.
I really liked Anoki's demiurge in this book, including what ended up happening to him.
