This was honestly my first gay fantasy and I adore it. So much. I think I connected with Percival Whybourne, the main character, because he's a complete bookworm. Like I am. But I really enjoyed the character growth in this series, as we see him as a slightly insecure man in the first book to a very powerful, confident sorcerer by book 8. (Which is where I'm currently at.)
I also love the fact that his partner, Griffin Flattery, is a good man that suits Whybourne right down to the ground. They make a good pair with each other, supportive and not afraid to kick each other if the other's being stupid. They have a healthy relationship, which you don't always see.
There's always a good plot in these books, always a lot of magic and a mystery surrounding what's going on. It's a healthy balance between action and romance, which I appreciate.
I would recommend this to anyone that loves a good fantasy and a good romance.
