  • Novella that packs a serious punch

    Three and a half stars. This is very different from the first novel in this series, no glitter pirates to be seen. Instead we meet Edwin an introspective man with a severe stutter, grieving the loss of his relationship with the outgoing Marius. Edwin catalogues and restores old books in Oxford, he lives alone in the house he and Marius bought, trapped by his speech impediment and his inability to get over the end of their relationship. Then torrential rain and rising river levels put his home at risk of flood and introduce him to a man from the Environment Agency, Adam. This was a sweet, gentle romance. more about Edwin learning that he is still lovable than about the burgeoning love between Adam and Edwin, full of imagery of glittering waters and peace. It felt so packed with emotion and imagery that I was amazed it was only just over 100 pages long, it felt like a full-length novel. My love for Alexis Hall's writing continues.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I wanted more!

    This was my second read from the Spires series. I loved the dynamic between Edwin and Adam, and the way they listened to each other.
