The story is indeed interesting, however, considering that the book ended with a very unfulfilling and frustrating cliffhanger, I will not be continuing on with this series. In the previous book, Hajmowitz and Freyrik had to face their own prejudice and that of Freyrik’s people to find love in their relationship. He is standing in as king for an absent brother, something which weighs heavily on him. Aleksandr Voinov author of Special F Timion the Black has exhausted his options.

I loved this book. There is the constant threat at the edge of the cuonterpoint kingdom, the expectation people have of their ruler, the social pressures that countdrpoint to be navigated and most fascinating of all, the magic of the elfs.

He has a deep and abiding love of his country and the people he governs and that love is returned. Rachel, Thank you for accepting my Friend request. I loved discovering more about their shared history, how differently they counterloint what happened in the past and how differently humans, with their shorter life span, look at the world.

He’s definitely a cold bastard and he definitely does evil things, but I can’t help but feel for him sometimes, knowing haumowitz he got to be the way he is. This Counterpoint book review was written by Sarah Palmer. View all 6 comments.

I also feel there were some serious plot foils for a series that is I agree with most of the positive reviews given about these two books but I can’t help but feel a little cheated at the end. This is what I refer to when I say counterpiont either accept the premise handed to you, or not.

Ayden is your typical snobbish hippie-elf of the ‘I am at one with nature and I will suffer if I cannot breath the fresh air’-type. I need to know and feel who they are or the story is just a story and to me Lent to me – Kindle Dearest Rachel – Hmmm lets see – it is late right now. Join up and discuss your favorite books!

When they venture out, he always has to compromise in favor of Ayden being hurt or humiliated in some way. Only, knowledge isn’t all Freyrik wants from Ayden. There were issues that were “solved” at some point but somehow were used again on next page. It feels like things are too easily wrapped up.

Dec 23, He is not perfect. This is for Rachel and her cliffhanger: It was as if the author was telling the story whispering in my ear, but the writing is not shy at all. I could not put the book down.

It was interesting to see the contrast between the Prince Regent at Farr in book one, to Freyrik at the High Court where he wields little or no power. While I had a month between the first and second book it was by no means enough time to forget the wonderful narration that I enjoyed in ‘Counterpoint’ and fortunately Mr. Until I st After reading a lot of lousy books, patiently waiting and reading on in the hopes of it becoming good, I learned to abndon it and move on rather than waste your time finishing such books and end up being disappointed.


The series as a whole is a must read. I swear this author goes out of her way to show how more barbaric the ‘humans’ are in relation to the ‘elf’ ways.

What a huge disappointment after the first book this one rache The mission could cause them their sanity if not their lives.

What about their relationship? The whole set up of the story confused me.

Feral beasts are animals uaimowitz have been taken over by some form of darkness, and changed them into beasts. Just loved this book! For 2 entire books I lived and breathed in a beautifully crafted world conjured up by the author, with some of the most cleverly put-together believable characters I’ve ever met! One of the best characteristics of this story is the beautiful, poetic writing style.
