Fate, Frankincense & FuneralsFate, Frankincense & Funerals by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book brought me back to my teen years, when me and my sister used to download manga to read, I used to love a tittle or a picture and then when I was to read, I would discover it was boys love, and some really graphic hahah she would be trilled and me not so much. Don’t get me wrong I do love the sweet love and tenderness I just don’t like much when it gets graphic. Making a long story short, I chose this book because I loved the cover art, and when I started reading, I discovered that this was a boy’s love story, ok that’s alright, but I must say it’s the first lgbt book that I read, that actually have a good story and a good main character.

If you don’t like graphic descriptions of sexual acts, be a little careful, we do have a sexual act a bit graphic but not over the top.

If I have something to complain about this story is that the names are overly complicated but that it’s not really a complain, just old me rambling about. Our main character is named Acheron and he is a vulture, his kind are responsible for taking care of the people that are near death learn their story and then delivering their last wish and their bodies and soul to set them free, it’s really a big responsibility, and his mate to be is called Errapel, belongs with a group of people that bend a little bit the rules. Acheron must go to Mandara, a city that despise his kind, to take care of a last wish of a dying woman, and her story will bring Acheron closer to himself, doesn’t this make you curious to know more? This is more on the short side, but well worth of our time, it has an interesting mystique and mythology,

I will definitely try to read more of Naomi Valkyrie works, and bonus if she writes more with these characters <3.
