One thought on “Counterpoint

  1. Jenre

    I ve read various reviews of this book and had mixed feelings about reading it On the plus side is the fact that I like fantasy stories, and I also like master slave or captor captured stories no comments about what this says about me as a person, please On the minus side, I often find it difficult to read stories where one character is so wholly under the power of another to the extent that they are completely helpless In the end, after reading another book by this author, I decided to give thi [...]

    Lent to me KindleDearest Rachel Hmmm lets see it is late right now I could not put the book down I had to know how the story unfolded as I was unable to plot its course while reading Therefore, I may not make complete coherent sense So let me try 1 I was deep into the story and the characters I hated them, I loved them, I wanted to scratch their eyes out, I wanted to hold them I am a character driven reader I need to know and feel who they are or the story is just a story and to me this book was [...]

    The first kiss Bloody fucking swoon Review edited 16 4 2013I know that this review is going to be a huge jump from my previous review and rating which started off from a perfect 5 till I weaned it down to 4, now 3.5.I think that previously, I was a worried and perhaps a bit scared about having a different review amongst what seemed to be the raving masses Nowadays however, it bugs me every time I see this review So now I ve just decided to adopt a fuck this attitude and write whatever I want bec [...]

  4. Bookwatcher

    The begin of the book is soooooooo great and I adore this first part, when you will be introduced to the elf Adyden.With his uncontrollable hair and wild spirit Ayden is perfect I love this character, and was astonished by his bravery Trying to save his sister from humans he will be captured, finishing in the hands of the king s brother, the Prince Freyrik.Freyrik is desperate fighting against ferals, and will see in Ayden the weapon against those magical perverted animals Indeed the elf is the [...]

  5. Ezinwanyi

    3.5 starsI enjoyed this audio Ayden and Freyrik had a lot of tension, but Freyik eventually wore Ayden down.Ayden and his sister are elves who were captured by humans all the humans in the book were terrible and Ayden was so worried that his sister would be raped that he consented to be a sex partner for the prince.Prince Freyrick was ruling the country in his brother s absence but he was a much kinder ruler.Ayden was so distrustful of humans, but prince Frey eventually earned his trust However, [...]

    OH.GODS I loved this book This book was picked for me to read as a challenge and I dove in without reading the blurb or any reviews I really didn t know what to expect other than that this was m m fantasy and it had a cliffhanger It also has one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen.I found the World very interesting with the song and abilities of the elven people, the barbarism and prejudices of the humans, and the madness of the Ferals Darkers There was a bit of world building in the b [...]

  7. Yvonne

    I have mixed feelings about this book it takes place in a world where humans are at odds with elfkind every other species it seems Ayden and his sister are captured by humans and Ayden is then made into a slave for Prince Freyrik Farr, who is running the kingdom in his brother s absence The good in the book is the character of Ayden He s defiant, funny, snarky gives the book most of its energy Freyrik is immediately attracted to him and keeps him as his slave The two of them have some nice inter [...]

  8. Nikyta *Miss Forgetful*

    I loved this book I was putting it off because of the cliffhanger everyone was talking about but after finishing it, I m really glad I read it The cliffhanger wasn t as bad as I was anticipating, though Or maybe because I knew it was coming that I didn t have such a problem with it To me, it felt as if it was just a not so subtle warning that there will be a sequel to Counterpoint And how glad I am about that This book had everything in it that pushes my buttons Hostage situation, slavery, a bit [...]

    A POINT WELL EFFIN MADE Counterpoint is one of those epic love stories, that completely engages the reader and makes you fall in love I was completely caught up in the characters, and the world created I will say honestly that I wanted to read this book, because the cover is just so impressive It drew my eye, and it turned out that this book is than just a pretty cover pffft, pretty cover, like a sexy cover.This book as I said before is epic, epic fantasy that is Its pure fiction, from the war [...]

  10. Dreamer

    Just loved this book Read this in one fell swoop, all 414 pages apart from a quick dog walk I m a sucker for the combination of fantasy and m m especially from author Rachel Haimowitz The elf Ayden agrees to his master Freyrik s terms in order to save his sister fellow captive Ella s honour Straight on to book two When Ayden looked back up, there was steel in his eyes of a kind Freyrik knew well a warrior s commitment to a hopeless battle If you keep her safe, he continued, I will do anything yo [...]

  11. Trio

    Amazing It was so far beyond five stars I don t think I can even count that high.It didn t have the level of darkness I expect from Rachel Haimowitz darkness which ended up being preferable but it was perfect The scope of everything, the creativity of the characters, the beauty of the love affair, and the emotion behind the whole thing it was truly incredible.The audio was fantastic

  12. Emanuela ~plastic duck~

    I loved this book I would have finished in a couple of days if real life had stopped interfering with it.The world building is compelling and lyrical, so is the writing The musical theme was present throughout the book, weaving the world, the characters and the words together What is expressed and the way it is expressed always fit and you are really taken to another world.The relationship between the elf Ayden and the human Freyrik is beautiful and precious Freyrik is immediately attracted to t [...]

  13. Тамрико

    My thoughts right now view spoiler I wish Ayden didn t help humans during the Surge Better let them perish and use that chance to escape Not a single likable human character, including a spineless Prince of Farr, who can t even stand up to a representative of an apparently extremely opprest member of the society a woman, The First Wife Neither can he properly defend his property or people he is in charge of Even children are little savages Elli is no better, a clueless child in La la land She ne [...]

  14. Em

    I have been trying to get to this series for a good couple of years and I m annoyed at myself for putting it off for so long This is the kind of series just perfect for me fantasy, slave, elves, soldiers, nice bit of angst and sex scenes that are well worth the wait Ayden and Freyrik took a while to realise exactly what they meant to each other and that their feelings ran deep but I really do enjoy a slow burner Moving straight on to Crescendo

  15. Jilrene ♥

    No No No NO I couldn t put this one down for anything The thanks I get for that is a cliff hanger ending Too much pain and suffering at the end, no hope of an HEA or even an HFN I knew there was another book, but it didn t occur to me this one would end so wrong This was well on the way to 5 stars but I just cannot stand this type of ending I m done.

  16. ¸. • * ° *❧Gwendolyn❧°**★•°**★

    I m left hangingAnd, I m not happy about it This was to short, I did not want this to end An the way it did end Just kill me nowI need the next book

  17. Camilla

    Ok, maybe I shouldnt review this so soon after having finished it, because all I want to say is WHAT THE FUCK Like Seriously WHAT THE FREAKIN FUCK just happened How the hell is it even legal to end a book like that I seriously want to break something so bad right now Just pick up a vase and throw it into a wall I ve never done that before, but I think an ending like this, quite possibly derserves it I mean WHAT THE FUCK Phe Let me try to explain this I started this book about 3 hours before I ha [...]

  18. Jo * Smut-Dickted *

    Just fantastic I m not sure a review could do this book justice I loved it from Ayden s struggles not to submit to his feelings or Freyrik all the way to Freyrik s dual role of leader and lover One of the best realized worlds with outstanding dialogue you just get swept away in the story I cannot recommend it highly enough It was worth every penny I spent and is a definitive re read for me probably multiple times not for its erotic content which is there but not huge but for it s story and chara [...]

  19. *P*u*r*p*l*e* Masochist

    Arc Provided Via Netgalley In Exchange For Honest Review Yay Can t wait to read this 3.5 wanna be 4 starsThis review is posted on Way Too Hot Books All the world seemed suddenly dream, for in what waking world would a prince deceive his own people for the benefit of a slave Ever since a little kid I had a huge crush on fantasy movies, shows and books and even now, 26 years later, that still hasn t changed It s just that nowadays my preferences expanded, this time on mm genre Elves fairies were a [...]

  20. Jerry

    Wow, what a ride with two strong men oops, I mean 1 man and 1 elf An emotional roller coaster with heights so beautiful and lows so draining I don t know how I can wait till the fall when the sequel comes out But I bet it will be a series and the ending of the next book will be equally mad making The setting reminded me a little of Lord of the Rings without it being the same at all A great fantasy, the romance is tied up in there but there is so much as well Recommended for those who like a goo [...]

  21. Cat

    Ok I just wanted to say that after reading this book I was mad and hurt I was mad that I had to wait almost a whole year until the next one comes out This book is a great story of Understanding, Patience and in the end love with some other stuff in the middle I was caught hook, line and sinker and could not put it down I swore after reading the ending I heard the dramatic music of supise and possible pending doom Or was it

  22. Kassa

    Counterpoint is book one of a two book epic story The ending of this story is a cliffhanger with a few unresolved issues and definitely no happy ending in sight This is perhaps why I had such a tough time with the story On the one hand, the fantasy world is lovingly crafted with an eye for detail On the other, I didn t particularly enjoy the story s focus on moderate violence, manipulation, humiliation, and hatred This is a darker fantasy story that plays on the classic push pull dynamic of diff [...]

  23. Jeff Erno

    Ayden is an eight hundred year old elf living in a world where his race is at war with humans He follows his sister into enemy territory where he s confronted by human soldiers He fends off his captors by killing sixteen of them, but ultimately is captured, along with his sister, and they become prisoners of war Prince Freyrik is the ruler of the human territory where Ayden was captured, and the prince is immediately attracted to the elf He decides to enslave Ayden, and claims him as his persona [...]

  24. Sophia

    Audio Review This is my second encounter with the story, but it has been awhile This time around was a cleaned up newer addition and the audio format.A gripping fantasy romance of two bitter enemies brought together when elf, Ayden, crosses the border into human lands to keep his sister from capture only to be captured right alongside her Ayden becomes the human prince, Freydrik s personal slave It is an intense battle of wills as well as a battle for understanding as the pair navigate their way [...]

  25. Jen

    When I finished this book, my reaction was, Hmmmmm I kept trying to decide if I liked it or not, and the answer really is, I have no idea I Liked Ayden, our elven MC for the most part I got a little annoyed with his belligerence, but I didn t really blame him for it, either If I were in his place, I would have been the same, if not worse It just dragged on too long, but that s on the author, not the character The key plot elements I m interested enough in the storyline to want to know what happe [...]

  26. ♆ BookAddict✒ La Crimson Femme

    I didn t like this book too much I enjoyed another book of Ms Haimowitz, but this one didn t do it for me The 300 pages filled with hatred, biogry and ignorance only caused me to be pissed, not engaged As much as I would like to know what happens in the second book, I m going to have to ask someone else to tell me what happens.I liked the Prince and the elf here I really do I didn t like Kona the cunt nor did I like Ella the imbecile I m not sure why Ms Haimowitz wrote in such despicable women I [...]

  27. Honour

    This book felt confused to me It seemed like it was part epic fantasy, part m m romance but not really strong in either category The plot line was pretty standard, enemies learning to overcome their differences while facing a great threat and whatnot and the romance was kind of lackluster I rooted for the characters but at the same time I was kind of bored If you read a lot of Fantasy, the world building and plotline will be on the light side and if you like a lot of steamy scenes, you ll also b [...]

  28. Chris

    Very good m m fantasy romance about an elf who s captured by humans while trying to protect his sister, then becomes the favored prisoner of the area s regent I started reading this nearly two years ago, soon after it was released Then I learned that the book ended in an evil cliffhanger, so I stopped reading until the sequel came out if I d reached that cliffhanger, I would have been too pissed to ever read the sequel.

  29. Sarah

    While I did find this reasonably enjoyable, some parts were hard going It had an interesting premise and the tension in the characters romance was nice, but some of the world building was not as well developed as I would have liked However, something a little different and worth a nosey 3 and a 1 2 stars.

  30. Fenriz Angelo

    DNF at 70%I tried, but nope Not the kind of fantasy i like, this has irrealistic reactions from the characters, and slave master relationship even though the slave master thing is treated lightly, to me, still seems to be a power difference i m not okay with.
