Présentation de l'éditeur

First I was a sorcerer. Then I was a hermit. For so long—for years that seemed to go on forever—I couldn't bear to be touched. I put up not just walls but whole stone bunkers to keep everyone out, emotionally, and physically as well. I was protected from people, from ghosts, from specters real and imagined. Sure, I was alone. But I felt safe. Only, after a while, I wasn't sure any longer whether a totally "safe" empty life was really worth living.
Then Tobin came along. Out of the blue, out of my past, with a summons from the king that he wouldn't let me ignore. I tried to cling to my isolation, but he wouldn't give up on me. Tobin never believed in walls.

This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group's "Love Has No Boundaries" event. Any author royalties from this story will be donated to the Gay Men's Domestic Violence Project (GMDVP).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of my favorite books of the year. 10 octobre 2013

Light high fantasy, with excellent world-building and well thought out character driven story. I can't believe this one is free or near free oO

The author had me from the beginning and its one of those stories that you know will be excellent so you try to savor it slowly, a little at a time.

One of my favorite fantasies this year.

So well done, I am slowly working my way thru the author's entire backlist.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great M/M Fantasy Read 13 octobre 2013
Par T. Gray - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
4.5 stars – Really enjoyable fantasy novel with very likeable and appealing characters. (I read this originally from the GoodReads M/M group as part of its free “Love Has No Boundaries” story event.)

I’m a fan of Harper’s mysteries and shifter books. I find her style excessively readable, and I always dig her characters and their relationships. This is the first “high fantasy” work I’ve read by her, and I found it just as readable and enjoyable as her more “modern” world works.

The story focuses on Lyon, a sorcerer “in hiding,” from his past and from the world, who lives on his own in his stone cottage, and is so introverted, it takes a lot of energy to muster up a conversation with the boy who delivers his food. But Lyon is hiding for a reason, and that reason comes out as the story progresses, especially when his childhood friend Tobin comes knocking, and asks Lyon to leave the safety of his stone walls for a request by the king. It is Tobin’s reappearance and his steadfast nature to coax Lyon back with him that propels the story (and Lyon) forward.

Really enjoyed the story and its progression as Lyon struggled to take in these changes and his feelings for Tobin. I also found that struggle very resonating—Lyon’s battle against his fears, the disability with his scarred hand, his feelings of self-worth, his ability to interact with others. It was very easy for me to feel his struggle and sympathize with him.

And I loved Tobin’s patience and willingness to bend and alter in order to either find a way that would work with Lyon’s disability or traumas or would give Lyon the space to move forward on his own. Very supportive and loving character, and totally won me over. (I also dug that Tobin realized that this was something he could have only done because he was older and more experienced. He mentions at one point that if he came upon Lyon when he was 20, and Lyon was just coming out of surviving his ordeal, that Tobin probably wouldn’t have handled it well, and not been able to provide the same thoughtfulness. I thought that was nicely realistic.)

I thought the romance was handled great—it was a nice slow burn that seemed to always be bubbling. The slow burn also worked well and felt consistent with a character that was so touch-phobic and had to slowly learn how to open up and be okay with contact.

Overall, I really dug it. It’s a long novel, at over 100,000 words, which is pretty amazing since it was written for a prompt for the MM Romance Group’s 2013 summer story event, and was completed in less than a month and a half. Probably with more timing, some parts could have been tightened more, some typos caught, but those are small complaints for a story that I thought was actually pretty awesome.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A masterpiece of m/m fantasy romance... 17 octobre 2013

Lyon had begun his working life as apprentice to a sorcerer. Sorcery in this world is necromancy, that is, communication with the dead. Lyon's master had begun delving too deeply in his search for knowledge and he raised something very dangerous, very powerful and very deadly. This undead creature possessed Lyon's master and tried to gain control of Lyon as well. In the end, the sorcerer was dead, his fortress burned to the ground and Lyon had fled, scarred, crippled and psychologically traumatized. For long years Lyon hid from the world and now he is 29, living as a recluse in a small country village and making a name for himself as a translator of dead languages. The king hears of his skill and sends one of his most trusted aids to bring Lyon to his castle for an important job. The king's aide is Tobin, an ex-military officer. Tobin is shocked to recognize the beloved friend of his youth. Lyon still has the long golden hair and beautiful face he remembers but he had thought Lyon had died in the fire long ago. This is basically where the book begins as an adventure to save the kingdom with knowledge gained from the dead plays out. Tobin loves Lyon and will do anything to keep him safe and help him overcome his fears, but the undead wraith who had caused those fears is waiting for a chance to rise again... This was an excellent read, just fascinating. The plot was so well designed and creative with many wonderful characters. The love between our two heroes wasn't always enough to overcome the problems they faced, but they struggled on and didn't give up until they achieved a happy end for themselves. Best thing I have read in quite a while.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautifully Written! 12 octobre 2013

I had never read anything by Kaje Harper. In fact, I downloaded the book for free from Smashwords having absolutely no expectations. Within the first few pages, I was hooked. The writing is melodic, the world is beautifully crafted, the characters are both flawed and flawless. The love story between Lyon and Tobyn reads like poetry. The sex scenes are handled beautifully, with delicacy and subtlety. I definitely recommend this book and will absolutely be reading it again. I will also be reading more by this author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Gay Fantasy: Nor Iron Bars A Cage by Kaje Harper 21 janvier 2014
Par Elisa - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I’m not really a fantasy lover, but Nor Iron Bars a Cage bore nothing of what usually makes me stay away from these novels: even if the setting was complex and original, it wasn’t overwhelming so much it eat the story: I don’t like when I spend too much time trying to follow all the details the authors is showing off to prove they have done homework. That of Lyon and Tobin is a rendering of a Medieval kingdom, so some of it was familiar, but it was a place and time where sorcerers and ghosts not only exist, they are even common occurrences; moreover, to threw the reader a little more off the current time and into the fantasy world, time and space and how to measure it was different, there wasn’t the concept of weeks or years or miles, but similar concepts (the week is actually 6 days and not 7, the length is measure in horse feet or arrows’ arch, and so on).

But what was the most beautiful thing was the sweet love story between Lyon and Tobin: they were kids together, and young, but yes, already probably in love. Tobin, second son of a nobleman, was destined to the army, Lyon, from the middle-class, was the apprentice of a sorcerer. Tobin thought they had time, that he could go in the Army do his deed, and come back to Lyon, but when he did come back, in the end, Lyon was believed to be dead. Lyon wasn’t dead, but for him, he wasn’t far from it. He is living like an hermit, in a small cottage far from the city and he is trying to not let his tragedy kill him for good. There is no space for Tobin’s memories, or maybe, he has forced himself to forget. But when Tobin knocks at his door, everything comes back in a rush, with the only difference that he is no more the boy to whom Tobin was hoping to go back home.

Tobin is a really good man, nor before or now he lets jealousy, or passion, eating his love; he loved Lyon before and he loves him more now. Even if he is one of the more trusted men of the king, he will put Lyon before his sire. Lucky for them, homosexuality doesn’t seem to be a trouble, they are fays, and being fay isn’t a condemnation. Tobin easily admits he was fay when they were young, and with that, admitting also that he was in love with Lyon. This love will give a reason to Lyon to try to overcome his tragedy, and be ready to face life again.
