2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention A Tested Love by Kayla JamethIt was extremely interesting to read a story set in an ancient world of Sparta It let me understand their culture better and, what is , to see Spartans as people who had feelings after all and not only soldiers fixed on killing.
A Tested Love is a sequel to A Spartan Love, and A Spartan Love must be read first This sequel is not as good as the first book, which I gave four stars, and that is disappointing since I have been looking forward to it all year There s a lot of complicated angst for the sake of plot, and not a lot of sex.Spoiler alert Theron has abandoned Andreas to return to the Spartan way of life It provides a glimpse into Sparta itself, the culture, the demands, and the Gods It leaves Andreas in palpable an [...]
I was so excited to read the sequel to Spartan Love, I devoured that book, and needed book two right when I finished it It was worth the wait though, believe me Andreas risked it all for Theron and the abandonment he feels when Theron abandons him is not easily forgotten He tries to put his heartbreak behind him and carry on with life with his furry ferret companion Ictis, and deal with the horrible nightmares, but Theron may not be as uncaring as Andreas thinks he is Theron thought he was doing [...]
Review to come.
