From the moment the story started, I loved the world St. James had created. When Gavril first meets Shyla, I instantly fell in love with Shyla’s kindness, attitude, and ability. The sexual tension between the two is fantastic. The way they interacted, made it clear they Gavril of Aquina by Aurrora St. Jameswere a good match for each other and I was immediately interested in their romance.
The struggle Gavril feels to reveal his true identity to anyone adds a definite twist to their budding relationship. The two are clearly meant to face the story together. When Gavril’s true identity as the former king of Aquina is revealed to a carefully chosen group of friends, and his magic is regained, the main plot of the story begins to pick up speed.
The action is engaging, the romance is amazing, and it’s all made possible by St. James’ good writing and fantastic characters. I was so incredibly happy with the ending, that I found myself itching to re-read Gavril of Aquina and get lost in it again. This is definitely a five star book. I recommend it to anyone that loves fantasy – especially fantasy with a steamy, romantic edge. This book was the perfect balance between action and romance.
