    1. Okay, so maybe Michael Jensen writes like James Feni Cooper on Ecstasy Is that so wrong After all, he s a man on a mission Gay people used to be invisible, at least if early American folktales are any indication Then came Jensen s Firelands, hellbent on reclaiming Western myths for the unrepresented.It begins with explosive action, which never lets up In 1797, as a brutal winter tightens its grip on the Ohio Territory, supplies grow scarce With tensions running high between settlers and indigeno [...]



    2. My reaction a few chapters in I am so glad I picked this book up There is not a lot of adult scenes , maybe about three scenesor perhaps two snippets and one glimpse lol However the book didn t need than that The mystery and writing definitely carried this book to a five star rating on its own Not that I would have minded a little , ahem, but without it certainly gave this book a classic feel which undoubtedly is refreshing amongst all the smut that fills the m m genre And I certainly do not r [...]


    3. Novemeber 1799 hunter and trapper Cole Seavey, at twenty years old, escapes New York and his fianc and heads for the Ohio frontier settlement of Hugh s Lick, in search of his brother Gerard Before he reaches his destination is caught in a ferocious storm and is attacked by a gruesome and mysterious creature He is rescued by Pakim, a Delaware Indian, and as the Indian massages his body in an attempt to warm him, he is shocked to find himself becoming aroused, and even shocked to notice that Paki [...]


    4. SlashReaders I liked this one It was a fascinating mixture of myth, and reality woven into one complete story The characters were interesting and you really got a chance to see inside of Cole Seavey s head However, the other characters in the story really came to life through Cole s eyes.The ending was a surprise for me, I did not see it come I had a lot of thoughts but this was not one of them The author does a good job of keeping you going through the whole story and down the paths that he wan [...]


    5. From a narrative standpoint, Firelands is fairly strong Unfortunately, Jensen makes use of one of my least favorite plot devices conflict and challenge resulting from everyone being too afraid of their reputations to tell other people what they know about a potentially dangerous situation But characters are well drawn though the settlers are somewhat one dimensional relationships are well depicted events move along at a decent pace Cole spends too much time getting knocked unconscious, but that [...]


    6. I listened to the audio version of this book This was a really great adventure based in the frontier Ohio valley with a mm romance btwn a trapper and an Native American woven in I wasn t sure what to expect when I bought this but found myself completely drawn in by the adventure, horror, mystery and romance of this book I think that is primarily because the narrator does an excellent job But the story is very engaging from the start This is not a warm and fuzzy read but has some truly horrific v [...]


    7. Not my usual fare, but I still enjoyed it The story kept me on the edge of my seat and up past my bed time I am definitely looking forward to reading the first book, though I feel this one stands alone well enough.


    8. This one kept me on the edge of my seat It actually had me jumping in the middle of the night Loved the characters.
