When The Eighth Key came out last spring, it made an impact. Not only was it a gripping fantasy yarn, but it was a steamy, slow burn male/male romance. One reviewer praised it for “making consent sexy”. Another found it refreshing that gay angst wasn’t featured, just a great gay couple. Our favorite review gushed about how it was the first time she’d read a book where sex was fundamental to the plot of a fantasy novel!
Last week, we got the absolute cherry on top of this sundae of feedback: on December 8, The Eighth Key won The Rainbow Award for Best Gay Fantasy Romance! It was a crowded field with lots of worthy candidates, so we are beyond proud to have gotten the nod (along with Geoffrey the Very Strange by Angel Martinez).
