Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.
Surprisingly I liked the second novel more than I did the first. Some of the reviews I read point out inconsistencies in the characters and I agree with that, there are some inconsistencies, but at the same time I am really happy about the duality (if I may) of Noah and Tobias’ relationship. It is a nice angle.
To me it looks like they are learning how to get the most out of their relationship and how to just be together. Some times they need to play a scene, other times they need to just enjoy each other, and I think that is great, it works out. I admit that I was afraid at some point that things were going in a rather vanilla direction, but we got back on track.
I am delighted that I got to read one scene I anticipated and it was better than I imagined it to be, and I also liked that I was right and I found out more about the main characters individually. The second book managed to really pull me in and made me have a bit of hope for the series. Not too much, but enough to grab the next book.
