    The Ballad of Jimothy Redwing is a fantasy since it's setting in a fantasy world and the main characters behave as medieval men never would but for all other details it's an medieval historical setting in a rather interesting growing town where bartering in an art and human skills the most valuable goodsJimothy Redwing is a wandering minstrel he walks from town to town gaining his foods with music and songs and delivering letters both written than spoken It's uite an idea this one of a minstrel that other than memorizing songs memorizes also the letters of who is unable to write there is some historical expert among my friends that can tell me if this is a fictional detail or is actually a true things? I have never found it in any other historical romance I read but it seems to me uite a good idea and it sounds so realAnyway Jimothy is travelling from one city to another to bring some important letters one in particular to the lanmere of the city something similar to a mistress of the land During the journey he meets Ricky a man who difference to him who is by foot travels by horse and that is so kind to offer him a pass And since Ricky is rather comfortable around the land they can spend the night in a waycabin one of a series of cabin that the late landmere built all around the country to host wandering travellers another uite good ideaAlone in the cabin Jimothy finds that Ricky and him have something in common they both prefer the company of men and they spend a lovely night together; Ricky actually is a very friendly and sexy man with an easy smile and an easy behaviour I don't want to say that he is a bit of a butterfly but yes he is not shy in matter of sex; our poor minstrel can do very little to go away with his intact virtue if he even wants itBut when the day after they arrive to the city Jimothy finds that Ricky is not exactly who he told him to be and an unknown enemy is not so glad to see Ricky gangs up with a common and simple wandering minstrel But Ricky discovers also that he is unable to move on Jimothy like he had with his other passing flings Jimothy becomes and important every day they spent together But Jimothy is a wandering minstrel and what would happen to the wandering part of his work if he chooses to stop and love a man?The suspence part of the story the unknown enemy is not very mysterious and for me it's not the main regard of the story I like a lot the fiction world the author created with all the details and the supporting characters It's a joy to read every single aspect carefully carved till the single shop sings on the street Also the two characters are nice probably I prefer Ricky I always prefer the bratty onesThe story is long but not boring The love is sexy and joyful there is a lot of sex but it's not too much probably since the book is long and so it's not seemed like the two are only and ever in bed Also the ending is of the right mood of all the story not uite so granted as you can expected This is for me a very good start for an author who tried her hands on a new genre

    The Ballad of Jimothy Redwing made for an enjoyable little piece of light reading The story is interesting enough and well written certainly although a bit slow at times But in a relaxing sort of way A few personal pet peeves I had with this book 1 The titlecover Definitely not indicative of the story Even looking at it now it makes me think contemporary mm romance with Native American character Um not the case at all2 Jimothy Redwing's name I'm still not used to the sound of it and I just finished reading about 200 pages of it What kind of name is Jimothy anyway?3 The author's use of modern sounding slang such as well hung when the setting of the story is a medieval like fantasy land It just doesn't jive right for me And one major complaint The ending It sort of putters off leaving several loose ends yet unresolved It just felt like the story wasn't finished yet like there should be somehow or perhaps a seuel novel although there isn't one planned as far as I can tell FYI There is however an 8 page follow up story offered for free on the author's site Of course I read it immediately and I'll admit that it kind of resolved things in a satisfactory manner but it still didn't really feel like the conclusion this novel was supposed to have Overall most of my complaints were personal issues that just bugged me and really had little to do with my overall enjoyment of the novel And I did enjoy it For something light and easy it was just fine I'll certainly be interested in taking a look at the author's other work

    Really unfortunate continuity issue in this book with Jimothy both meeting and seeing a portrait of Ricky's brother early in the story and remarking on his appearance and then not recognizing him later Mostly though this story suffers from lack of emotional variety Jimothy and Ricky have really limited emotional range from pleasant to happy When they are told they can't see each other they are kind of annoyed Maybe a bit frightened when one of them is attacked Lack of any negative emotion dilutes the impact of their positive emotions and makes them seem flat and one dimensional The cover and blurb weren't really clear but this is a fantasy set in in a vaguely feudal historical setting
