In the Darkness

In the Darkness - Charles Edward Hey, can I write a review yet? Can I? Can I?The first I heard of this m/m medieval fantasy was when I ran a craft chat on Goodreads some months ago organised by Ralph Gallagher. Charles joined in at the end with a section of his WIP that he wanted critiquing as there were a few elements he was having problems with. The other members of the chat all helped and I'm sure gave him the confidence to push on with the story. Later Charles asked for some more feedback from me, so it's been great and informative to watch 'In the Darkness' grow.Charles really nails it when he writes about guys in their late teens, transitioning between being boys and men. I wouldn't call them "coming of age" stories as such, but his characters sure capture their vulnerability.If I was a gay teenager, I'd be devouring his books and as a mature het female I still love being able to transport myself into their world. I wish him all the best with the release and am so glad LooseID picked it up. We need more variety in our m/m romance and this sure provides it!
