Kim Fielding is without a doubt one of the most dependable authors for my tastes. Sex is never used as a filler, I'm given wonderful mood setting, I'm emersed into engaging character development, thrilled with clean pacing and a captivating story. Volos was the type of honorable fellow you have to care for. We could have used more character development for Berhanu but it didn't kill the story overall. As far as sexual acceptance this is the world we should all live in.
