Book Blurb

Long before Eilif realized he was immortal, he was faced with a choice: use his magic to send his lover, Jon, into stasis, or watch him die. Now in the modern age, “Dr. Jamison” works in an emergency room, searching for someone he can trust with both the secret of his magic and the healing of Jon's wounds. Eilif has waited for so long—will his love prove to be as deathless as Eilif himself?

 

Book Review

The idea behind this story is quite interesting: take one sorcerer around the year 1000 BC who is immortal, add his lover who gets mortally wounded and is beyond the sorcerer’s ability to heal, and the sorcerer’s determination to save him. So, of course, the sorcerer puts the lover into ‘stasis outside time’ and waits around for magic, or medicine, to advance enough so he can save his lover.

 

Eilif is a sorcerer, and you have got to admire his stubbornness. He is amazingly devoted to Jon, and will clearly do anything to get him back. I loved that he eventually realizes medicine is his best bet, and once he finds another doctor who is willing to work with him and accepts a patient ‘appearing from thin air’, Eilif is finally on his way.

 

Jon has quite a few surprises awaiting him when he wakes up, but Eilif takes the time to prepare him well and explain as best he can. We don’t get to see too much of Jon, but one thing is clear: he is the dominant one in the relationship. And the one thing that hasn’t changed is the sheet-burning passion between the two men.

 

If you like stories with a touch of magic and the impossible, if devotion that lasts more than a millennium is your thing, and if you enjoy reading about super-hot reunions, you will probably like this book.
