Présentation de l'éditeur

In a country dominated by a war that has lasted for decades, all Duncan Harding ever wanted was a quiet life, running the garrison that has been commissioned to his family for generations. But his aspirations came to a sudden end when he was expelled from the Military Academy seven years ago. Now he is unexpectedly given the chance to return – for a price. Seventeen-year-old Taiko Camlyn is the heir apparent to the leadership of his home country, and the Academy’s newest recruit. Spying on the youth should be a piece of cake for a man like Duncan. But Taiko turns out to be far removed from Duncan's expectations and his assignment proves to be more insidious than he ever imagined. Caught in a tangled web of deceit and emotions he could never have anticipated, Duncan has to make decisions that will change his life forever.

HASH(0x93adcb40) étoiles sur 5 Newest Admission Into My All Time Favorite Books List 21 juillet 2014

"Sins of Omission" is a beautiful character driven book that still has plenty of plot.

Duncan is somewhat disagreeable, maybe even a tad sociopathic with his "me me me" behavior BUT he exudes charm like we normal humans expel carbon dioxide. And, for someone whose first thought revolves around his own wants and needs, he's shockingly unaware of his own feelings.
However, there's something enviable and even admirable in how he chooses to live his life, shamelessly flaunting characteristics deemed disreputable by his militant country, Orontia, and its people.

Yeah, I know this doesn't paint a pretty picture and you may feel like he's not worth following around for 400 pages, but you'd be wrong. Duncan's inner crises and emotional development is captivating. He has a unique ability to worm his way inside your heart, while revving up your libido, too.

Taiko is serene, decisive, gifted and ethereal in his beauty, prowress and honor. Despite being Duncan's junior by nine years, he possesses a wisdom and moral compass belying his youth. He's amazing!

As individuals they both are fascinating, but together they're magic. Rarely have I witnessed a couple who so thoroughly complement one another, in fiction or otherwise. Duncan and Taiko are the supreme example of the possibilities and joys real love can bring, even if it's a difficult and challenging journey.

I'd say that it's pretty plot driven, too. You have a 26 year old Duncan who's been essentially wasting away in purgatory after being banished from the Academy- a military school and the only place where a person can become an officer or ever hope to attain the means for future happiness in Orontia.
He's offered an opportunity to go back and get a diploma IF he successfully insinuates himself into the heir apparent of Lomenia's life, and bed if necessary, to gather and report any all information.

All goes well as the two find themselves pleasantly suitable to each other's company- becoming more well rounded as people due to their friendship and affection.

While everything begins at the Academy in Orontia, the ultimate test lies in Lomenia.

Duncan must come to terms with his sins, and their repercussions, meanwhile deciphering his true feelings about Taiko. Taiko must be strong enough to stand beside his lover against the expectations of his friends, family and entire country. It's a tall order for both of them and it's a perilously thin line between success and failure.

I doubt I could ever express my great love for this book; it's just too mind bogglingly awesome. I wish I could just string together positive adjectives to get my point across...

Basically, it's a well written and perfectly executed story set in a world similar enough to ours to be comfortably familiar and different enough to keep you spellbound. The characters are real, evolving, suffering, loving, worrying people who take root in your heart.

Missing out on this book would be a sin.

Upon reading this book I was very curious about Duncan then I thought he was a selfish jerk but as I continued to read the story I came to realize that he is just a insecure person who got caught I. a situation that he can't forgive himself for, so when an opportunity comes to take him away from his dreary life at home with his mother and sister he accepts without realizing that Taiko would come to mean more to him than a chance at fresh start what Taiko will give and show Duncan will be a life beyond he has ever known and a love Duncan never knew he wanted or even needed.

I enjoyed this story so much it was full of intrigue, suspense, danger, deception, mystery love and I wanted more, I will be reading this one over again and looking for more stories from this author I wish I could rate it higher than a five because this book definitely deserves a ten across the boards!!

Duncan is such a compelling character right from the first moment we meet him that you can't help but root for him, even when you really want to give his head a shake.The threads of intrigue and clues to its resolution are so carefully woven throughout the story that when I was finished, I immediately wanted to go back and read it again for those 'Aha!' moments.

It is a welcome change to read a gay romance in which there is an actual plot with real character development. Set in an alternate universe in which the two protagonists -- Taiko and Duncan -- are from neighboring countries embroiled in long-term regional warfare, the book is largely a character development piece for the Duncan character. And a well-constructed, rational, emotionally true development it is.

Duncan is a 26 year old farmer, an unwilling farmer, forced into that occupation after being expelled from the national military academy as a young man. The academy is the only means of advancement in an entirely militarized society and therefore Duncan's life is stunted, as has his personality and maturation. Suddenly, the commander of the academy arrives and offers him re-entry into the academy if he will agree to spy on his intended roommate, the heir to the dictatorship crown of the other country, with which a new alliance has been formed. It is expected that he will seduce the young man, who is only 17 years old. Eager to regain an upward trajectory, Duncan agrees and then when he meets Taiko, discovers that the seduction will be a happy one as the young man is attractive, intelligent, and sweet. Eventually taken out of his environment to Taiko's home country, it is there that Duncan is forced to understand himself for the first time and in so doing, finds happiness in ways he never expected.

The reason I did not give five stars is for two reasons. First, Taiko is a Mary Sue-type character. Absolutely perfect in every way, even though he is only 17. The perfection was so unrealistic in a book that has such true to life emotional portrayals of the Duncan character that it was glaring. I also wish Taiko had been older, because his accomplishments and self discipline would have been more believable. Secondly, Taiko's home is portrayed as a sort of socialist utopia ruled by benevolent dictators. Too unrealistic for me.

Nobody does emotionally challenged (and a little narcissistic) men as good as B. Makewood does. We follow Duncan on his interesting journey to another country - and the plot is intricate and well paced, the world we enter is alive and spellbinding - but the real beauty of this book lies in the description of Duncan's inner journey. There is something about Duncan's unwillingness do admit to his deep capacity to feel, not even to himself, that is utterly fascinating to read. It must be very difficult to write from the perspective of a men, who is often quite blind to his inner feelings and motivations and still transfer a beautiful vulnerability and a rich and deep inner world. And B. Makewood masterfully does so without ever stepping out of character, always striking the right note. So step by step we get to know Duncan, and in the process Taiko, through his eyes. And if there ever was a tender, precarious, passionate and challenging love, this is it - without ever drifting into tyring and unneccessary romantic tropes.
The way B. Makewood describes Duncan's struggle with the ever shifting and multilayered power dynamic between these two men is one of the many highlights of this book.
I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy stories with a poetic and subtle tone, that bring complex characters to life and challenge us readers by boldly tackling questions of identity, power, fear and commitment.
There is so much more to explore here, I'm holding out hope for a sequel!
