    One thought on “A Taste of Honey”

    1. i liked this one much than The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps which is surprising, since it s basically a romance with some fantasy overlay, and i ve never been a big fan of romance tales the relationship is m m, so it s less harlequin, meaty heh , but yeah it s a fairly traditional story of star crossed lovers whose passion is beset by social obstacles and familial obligations of the arranged marriage variety set in the same world as The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps and maybe the free tor short Super B [...]

    2. There s a lot to love in this novella that has been nominated for this year s Hugo award, not least being the exquisite worldbuilding, the delightful mastery of SF tropes in a firm fantasy and godly base, and wonderfully drawn characters over the span of their whole lives.But what I believe people are going to be most focused on is the fact that this is a male on male romance for the ages as seen through a unique culture that has roots deep and familiar but not so familiar as to be ordinary at a [...]

    3. Finally I ve been reading all Hugo finalist novellas in preparation for my vote, and so far it s been horror, horror, horror, Lovecraft, some horror It s all been good, but I ve been craving some nice fantasy, and here it is Vivid world building, intriguing characters, and a compelling m m romance This is a story of choices, paths not taken, and unlived lives, that will stay with you long after you reach the last page Though I did have a couple of issues with the romance itself, in particular w [...]

    4. This review is really hard to write because it s very important to not give anything away which would ultimately ruin the book yet still explain and show enough, so you can see why I loved this book.What stands out for me are the language used the non chronological use of time and narration the settingI find it actually hard to explain why I like the language so much Compared to a lot of other books it s very distinct both full of imagery and simplicity, yet seeming incredibly smart.Aqib s story [...]

    5. After The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps I had extremely high expectations for this novella It didn t quite live up to them, but the quality of the writing alone makes the book than worthwhile.In the kingdom of Olorum, the young Aqib is proud of his status and position he is set to follow in his father s footsteps and become the head animal trainer to the royal court He sees his future ahead of him a suitable marriage, arranged by his family, a secure position toward the top of his hierarchical socie [...]

    6. This was a fascinating read Extremely bold storytelling with a dizzying ending and astonishing scope for a novella We re plunged into a new world of huge complexity and detail, the story leapfrogs back and forth, there s a huge amount to infer and a lot of people to get to know very intimately, and the author pulls it off Masterly I didn t get into Sorceror of the Wildeeps, it felt a bit epic fantasy for me personal taste, not a criticism but this was brilliant And demonstrates once again that d [...]

    7. All I can say is wow This pushed every fantasy geek button I have All I know is I haven t been thunderstruck by a novel since in forever Beautiful, complex, lyrical, the kind of immersive fantasy that I love Characters who are multifaceted, real A world of humans and gods and powers There is love and loss, humor and sorrow This little book packs a punch and says in its few pages than some books do in entire trilogies.

    8. Rating 5 of fiveI m pissed at a review of mine having a pull quote used without my knowledge So I m back to posting links to my blog.My warble of joy after reading this beautiful and deeply sad and absolutely true story can be read at Expendable Mudge Muses Aloud.

    9. You d think that with how short this book is, it would leave you wanting just a bit Kai Ashante Wilson has the amazing talent of creating a world so rich and so beautiful with little words and pages From the start, I was hooked It s not everyday you read about an all black cast in high fantasy Even rarer are the queer characters but A Taste of Honey has it all.It s a beautiful, heart wrenching story about love, sacrifices and identity I hope everyone has the chance to pick it up because it chan [...]

    10. Too much disjointed romance and too little plot development for my tastes Felt like snippets and scenes than a cohesive story.

    11. For most of the book my rating was close to 2 stars, and only the last 25 pages or so raised it to three, because that was simply beautiful.The rest, though, depends heavily on whether or not you like author s language Oh, there are other things too Like the world is interesting in itself, and then there are human relationships Aqib and his daughter was particularly touching, him and his brother quite painful Though if you want to read this because of the romantic storyline don t hold your breat [...]

    12. I enjoyed this one than The Sorcerer of Wildeeps, but I think that Wilson s writing style may just not be one that I enjoy Full review to come.

    13. As for my first read of the author, The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps, I was charmed by Kai Ashante Wilson s very personal writing I love when good authors and they must be good or the result would be catastrophic let their readers guess the world, all along the story A story without any info dump at all His style is very lively, and direct, with, sometimes, some sentences of his own musings Of course this kind of writing can be frustrating, and I wouldn t recommend it to a large public But if you do [...]

    14. I ll rarely turn away Fantasy novel or novella with m m romance I really enjoyed this one It starts with the meeting of Aqib and Lucrio, the smell of forbidden love is strong in the air They quickly fall for each other, but Lucrio is only visiting for a short while before he returns to his faraway home country Will they remain together or will familial obligations and duty to his country prevent Aqib from being with Lucrio The answer to this question is up in the air for most of the novel and th [...]

    15. This was beautiful I completely adored the writing and I found this so engaging It s the story of two star crossed lovers in a fantasy desert kingdom where there are tame cheetahs The ending is marvellous The worldbuilding is gorgeous and fascinating and just really cool This is a lovely novella with a beautiful cover and one of my favourite authors, Ginn Hale, praised it on the back cover This novella is nominated for a 2017 Hugo Award and it s very good I look forward to reading by this autho [...]

    16. What a wonderful story of love and life and making decisions.After having read The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps I found my way much faster into the writing and the story And I think is it fascinating to see how much of a character and a world the author can bring to life in such a short text You don t miss anything and nothing is dragged on too long.

    17. Actual rating 4.5 starsWOW this was absolutely gorgeous, I was hooked and honestly did not see that end coming at all The writing style in this felt unique and was beautiful view spoiler but seriously I was freaking out near the end that that was all there was going to be and I could not handle it AT ALL WHY YOU HAVE TO STRESS ME OUT LIKE THAT KAI ASHANTE WILSON hide spoiler

    18. I honestly honestly loved this Wilson definitely cementing his place as one of my favourite new fantasy authorsOS The world building This is definitely where Wilson shines It was a joy to watch the world and its customs and norms unfold around me as I read further and further into the story Gods as real beings who sometimes deign to visit humanity, the intricacies of the Cousinry, all the societal norms and s I loved it all The prose I love Kai Ashante Wilson s prose so much, it s often so prett [...]

    19. Coming off the beauty and success of last year s Sorcerer of the Wildeeps, Kai Ashante Wilson once again welcomes us to his world of dragons and quantum physics, powers beyond belief and a world as real, as gritty, as strange, and as wondrous as ours But this time, our hero is not the god child mercenary Demane, but a young, estranged member of the royal family thousands of years before, a gifted keeper of beasts for the nobility of Olorum, Aqib bgm Sadiqi, whose night wanderings with his cheeta [...]

    20. I really enjoyed it It s a short fantasy story, fab world building although at times seriously grim with a thread of romance I must say I had a few tears but it was a satisfying read with much thinking when I d finished Definitely not my typical romance fare

    21. Potential If you re gonna write fantasy in 160 pages it better be good as hell Like that episode of the Cosby show, DIG DEEPER Lol

    22. 4.5 stars.Recommended.While the book was stunning, even without true romance, I can t give it five stars yet I am rounding it up ha ha.The last chapter ruined it for me Not because how it ended but the way it ended While I cheered for the MCs, I could not connect with that reality.Don t want to say anything else for the fear of spoilers, I already gave away too much Monica thank you, my friend, for the amazing rec and gift hugs

    23. I received a copy of A Taste of Honey from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.There were a lot of reasons I was really excited to read A Taste of Honey the premise sounded awesome, POC and LGBTQ characters, and there s a freaking cheetah on the front cover With all that, I couldn t wait to get my hands on this book Unfortunately, it didn t live up to my excitement A Taste of Honey centers around Aqib bgm Sadiqi, who falls in love with a soldier from a visiting nation, Lucrio Now, I shoul [...]

    24. This is another book set in the technology lost world of The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps It also explores the taboos around gay relationships and the consequences of those taboos.It s really a romance Aqib, a young man who is training to be Master of Beasts, comes across a foreign soldier named Lucrio as he walks home one evening from the park after exercising one of the royal cheetahs From Lucrio s perspective, I can see how it would be just about impossible not to go after a gorgeous young man wh [...]

    25. See of my reviews on my blog the Book DeviantBecause I didn t read that much, but still have quite a few things to say, I ll make this one short.My main problem with A Taste of Honey is the writing style It s really odd, going back and forth from Shakespeare style prose to extremely modern and eloquent writing I really couldn t stand it It was jerky and off balance, and made the novella hard to read In addition to that, I thought the characters were really under developed and lackluster You got [...]

    26. 2017 Hugos nominee for Best Novella It was far readable than This Census Taker because goddamn , and a for diversity and some fairly interesting fantasy details I loved Aqib s daughter Lucretia, and her son , and there s a bit of a twist in the ending but that last page was underwhelming, and for all that time spent with these characters, I m not left with so much of an impact It s doing something wrt roads not taken, second guessing yourself, found family, and abusive childhoods, but I didn t [...]

    27. Received to review via Netgalley published 26th October 2016I want to like A Taste of Honey, just as I wanted to love The Sorceror of the Wildeeps There s some fascinating world building in the back of this, and some beautiful, lyrical, sensual language And there s LGBT characters And the cover looks awesome It actually gives me of the background I wanted from the other novella, and the relationship was also much up front obvious from the start.Knowing other people really enjoy both Wilson s n [...]

    28. This novella starts as a simple love story of two men in a not so simple cultural milieu Surprises happen throughout that pushed this to 4 or stars The writing, as in the other novella in the same world, is rich in a unique way that I m not able to describe but I do recommend reading.

    29. I bought this book on the recommendation of several people I know online, whose tastes generally seem to mirror mine Their reviews were good, so I thought I d give this unknown to me author a chance.Unfortunately, the truism that tastes differ was confirmed once again, as I did not like this For one thing, the writing was far too frothy and artsy fartsy to suit me I haven t read any of the author s other work, so I don t know if this is his general style or an affliction of this story, but eithe [...]
