    Ashnavayarian was a powerful god like being of the leythe the place from which magical energies emanate But Ash has been a bad boy His thoughtless selfish meddling and manipulating has led to a war and disturbances within the leythe Ash needs to be taken down a peg or two so the goddess Jhara punishes him by forcing him to live in human form with most of his power stripped from him She hopes he’ll learn that using other creatures for his own amusement isn’t right and that some of the things he considers human frailties like compassion and love are just what he needs to learn Of course that doesn’t go over well with Ash and he’s determined to thwart Jhara by any means necessary and break his exile Jhara throws Ash another curveball when she leythe bonds him to Toryn MacAran a human Tor has never fit in and always harbored a painful emptiness inside like something is missing When a strange encounter at a bookstore one night ends up landing him at the feet of the handsome Ash he may have found the answer Ash’s touch takes his emptiness and pain away and makes him feel competeBoth main characters are well developed and interesting in their own right but when they come together oh boy The chemistry goes off the charts I adored the interaction between these two An emotional rollercoasterAsh is a self centered full of himself ass at the beginning of this story but he’s so damn fun Tor is the broken boy that I always adore And I do adore him except that by the end I’m so in love with Ash that even Tor’s delicious brokenness cannot compare These guys go through hell and back in this story but the growth of the characters throughout is such a treat to read This is a complex fantasy that takes place on another world separate from the earth from which Tor came The world building is uite intricate and yet so smoothly woven that it never felt cumbersome as some fantasies do for me Fast paced lots of wit smoking hot sex angst sexy long haired men my fav and some freaky bad guys to hate from Lucano in the first section on to some of his horrible creations in the second And then there’s Carrik Tarn a very interesting and pivotal secondary character I won’t say much about him for fear of it being a spoiler but I’d really like to know of his background Maybe that will come out in a seuel Oh and there’s this one scene where I just wanted to kick him in the nuts so bad I could taste it Except well that would have been impossible even if I were there at the timeSo much happens in this book much than I’d expect for the number of pages It has the depth of a much longer read almost like an epic I read the first half Human Frailties about a year ago as a freebie Since I’d enjoyed the first half of the story uite a lot I really have no idea why I waited so long to read the full story But very glad I finally did because the second half took the tale into awesome territory The second half made me fall in love So if you’ve read Human Frailties and never went on to read the rest don’t wait It only gets better Ash and Tor need a seuel and actually I’m pretty sure there is one currently in the works I can’t wait And one last thing I have to mention how much I love the name Ashnavayarian and all its interesting variants So freaking cool

    Many thoughts now let me try to get it all in order in something that resemble a reviewFIRST let me tell you something you may not know You can read half of this book for freeThis book is the expanded version of a freebie Human Frailties click here to download itIt was born as a short but now there is this version with part I Human Frailties the freebie and Human Strengths the part 2I start reading the freebie and love it so much I got the complete story Human Frailties Human Strengths I reread the first part if you buy it you will get part 1 and 2 and I keep going reading the extended part And I don't regret itEverything start with a god Ashnavayarian aka Ash in exile He must prove he deserve to have all his powers and do learn a lesson about fro fragile live is he is stripped of almost all powers and must live as a human It's not on Earth it's a sort of parallel reality think as another EarthToryn MacAran is human and from our reality In a very strange day he will end in another reality and with the self centered egomaniac and narcissist god AshIt's erotic and also VERY funnyFor a fantasy with so much info and description it's also VERY funny But the first part and I missed funny AshI think it deserve 5 starsBecause it's very original full of adventure and also with perfect placed sex scenes it's NOT a sex without plot story But I also think it's sort of sad the humor was just in the first part of the book the freebieOf course Ash must grown learn be responsible but IMO it should not mean be serious as he was in the second part I can understand it was a grown process Tor is there with him but I just don't think all the humor and jokes between both should disappearThe second part is serious a lot happened and it's a serious and dangerous situation and I LOVE the adventure of it and something I reeeeeeeeeeally don't know how to feel about happened It's something I can't talk about openly so I'm putting in a spoiler It's a noncon maybe seems rape sceneview spoilerOk so let be honest here I don't have problems reading nonconsensual scenes but it was odd and I didn't enjoy itTor is bonded to a sword Carrik Tarn aka Blackfang It was Ash that bond Carrik to a sword Carrik is mad but Possess Tor body during a leythe storm Carrik took over and rape AshNO it's not a love sceneNo it's not just sexIt's rape If someone says no as Ash did it's rapeI still wonder why it happenedI can understand it was a scene to show Carrik is ok now he had his revenge But a rape to pay for it?Ash enjoyed be dominated? Yes he loved it and after even ask Tor to fuck himIt's not important IMO It was rape and it don't make me feel ok they are even now or justice was done I had the WTF thought trying to understand HOW a rape can be consider a way to pay for what he did hide spoiler

    45 stars Very enjoyable read loved the witty dialogue between the two characters Well written Excellent world building I enjoyed the characters Ash was such as ass for a long part of this book that I barely had time to start accepting that he might be ok guy before it ended There was very little background on Tor but I really liked him despite that This is a free first part of a longer novel Human Frailties Human Strengths which I plan to read soon I NEED to read the rest of the story as its a bit of a soft cliffhanger HFN end I am sure that reading the rest will have a big impact on how I perceive the story so I'm keeping the review of this first part short Wonderful free read Highly recommended

    As rather interesting read I suppose but not one that was particularly engrossing or enjoyable The characters weren't particularly grabbing or loveable I didn't like Tor till the end and a rather unbelievable development in romance Their romance was tinged with a little dub con though really that's just a nicer way of saying rape that isn't brutal and forceful Mind you I'm okay with reading dub con and I can tolerate non con however this was a particular sneaky shade of it I didn't like and I feel that their relationship at the end didn't resolve any of my earlier uneasiness On a brighter note there were some elements of the world that I found incredibly intriguing and uniue and I definitely would like to know about itRating 275

    What an amazing story The world building the development of the characters and their relationship it all flowed so smoothly while keeping me riveted until the end Tor and Ash came alive for me and I love how their actions and banter fit their personalities so consistently Great combination of humor and suspense I can't wait to read the seuel

    I'm not normally much of a fantasy reader but I really enjoyed this story The writing is smooth and the characters were interesting I liked the fact that one of the MCs was ruthless initially and was uite the anti hero You don't see that often in romance but Jaye pulled it off I suspect there will be a seuel and I will be waiting for it

  7. Sunny Sunny says:

    Great fantasyadventure with awesome world building I liked how we learn about the leythe the energy matrix and the void Details like leythe bonds and leythe storms added interesting layers The characterizations were well done especially with Ash So arrogant furious about his punishment infuriating in his words and actions Tor wasn't as clearly drawn for me I would have liked time with his POV because I didn't understand his attachment to Ash outside of the leythe bond and if there wasn't any then it wasn't really a romance for meA lot of that had to do with the way their relationship developed Definitely no insta love here A lot of heat but also a lot of irritation resentment and anger As the leythe bond grew stronger though some caring slipped in even though Ash resisted getting attached Although we saw why Ash started to like Tor Tor's feelings were so influenced by the bond I wasn't so sure he actually liked Ash until much later More like a magic spell than true feelings Later on when the relationship changes a bit I had mixed feelings about it I liked the change A lot But I wasn't sure it was consistent with the characterization we'd been given of the two MCs It didn't bother me too much though because I really liked the characters Definitely a keeper for me and I'm excited about possible future adventures with Ash and TorWorld building adventure fantasy 45 stars for meRomance 35Side pointsI liked the twist with the sword I loved the humor in the first part and I missed it later on although it made sense with the change in Ash and the seriousness of their mission

    I had the pleasure of an advanced peek at this baby and it has come very far from its humble beginnings as a shorter story posted for the LHNB anthology Jaye McKenna has created a fascinating world with some very compelling characters who move through a well crafted emotion rich story There is no definite good and evil here although sometimes the motivations of some of the characters lean decidedly towards the “dark side” It brings the characters to life because like real people sometimes they do things that make us mad only to redeem themselves later on This story has a lot of action but it doesn’t ever sacrifice the relationships between the charactersGreat read

    45 starsI set this book aside back in Feb 2016 because I thought it was just going to be another PWP After reading and loving another of this author's series I decided to revisit this story So glad I didGreat world building finely crafted characters clever plot beautiful prose well edited It appears McKenna has written stories in this universe and I can hardly wait to discover them

    I SO wanted to like this the premise is good the writing is goodBut I hated Ash Tor is so alone puzzled has a deep strength he doesn't recognise; and loveableAsh is arrogant as he was meant to be but even when he realised he was actually feeling things for Tor he didn't DO anything to redeem himself Only 90 pages to read but it took me 3 DAYS Sorry
