Hello all! I am hard at work on the next chapter of Touch the Flame, but I took a break so that I could recommend a story that had been on my “to read” list for a while, but which I finished just yesterday. It’s pretty long, but I was happy to have invested the time. I hope that you will check it out–if you haven’t read it already.
This story captivated me from the get-go. It is a re-telling of the Eric/Sookie narrative from the start, with the most likeable Niall I have ever read. There is fairy intrigue and fate at work, but at the heart of the piece are two “resisting hearts” doomed to fail in that resistance. This author is wonderful at creating angst that will make you want to track down Eric and Sookie just so that you can slap some sense into them. However, I still loved both of them at the end of the tale. I smiled a lot and cried quite a bit as I read this piece.
