    1 thought on “Sacrati

    1. ETA For those interested, a postscript story is available at katesherwoodbooks 2015 12 This one was really fun to write The characters were interesting, but it was the different social structures that I really liked exploring.I started with a sort of modified Greek version of gay lovers as ultimate soldiers, and then modified it a little further SACred Band SACrati Get it I wanted to explore the idea of homosexuality as a behaviour rather than an identity, but I also wanted to look at how that c [...]

    2. Not quite sure how to rate this one Why Well, I didn t enjoy this as much as most people would Fantasy is not a genre I often read, but I wanted to read something different The blurb sounded interesting so I decided to give it a try Although, this was 5 star writing, I did find myself struggling to get through the beginning and the beginning felt preeeetty long as this is a preeeetty long book I don t blame the author though I honestly believe it s because fantasy is not my schtick Also, I m not [...]

    3. This book was fantastic, please don t let this horrible cover keep you from reading it Let me start by saying I m not usually a fan of fantasy historical books read as I NEVER read them , and we don t know for sure when this takes place, but it s easy to see everything happened a long time ago Sherwood did such a great job a creating this world, it sucked me in from the first page and I couldn t put this book down Yes the book is very long, 400 pages, but every word, every sentence, every page i [...]

    4. A good set up, but the execution failed.Spoilers below.Because of a lot of similarities, I couldn t help but repeatedly compare Sacrati to two of my favourite MM high fantasy series, C.S Pacat s Captive Prince series and Aleksandr Voinov s Memory of Scorpions series The political intrigue in Sacrati shares a lot with both the Captive Prince and Scorpions series I think it could have been very entertaining, but it wasn t The plot became increasingly convoluted, but the resolution was very simpli [...]

    5. LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT This is a non magical fantasy that brought to mind The Captive Prince in some ways, but is also quite unique in it s world structure and fictional society It tells the story of Theos, a leader in an elite band of warriors who ends up in the middle of a conspiracy along with his foreign captive Finnvidd There is so much delicious slow burn UST almost too much and such sweet, funny moments that I was completely won over It s about a culture clash as much it is a romance and I [...]

    6. Growing up in a well run if near subsistence society, where the men guard the borders, and the women run the town, made Theos s path in life obvious He would become a warrior, a Sacrati, the best of the best He would have companions and casual lovers among his fellow soldiers, and occasional times when he went to the women in town, to potentially father children Life would go on in a well proven path Eventually he might die in battle, but he d have lived well and simply until then.But Theos s li [...]

    7. Arc provided via Netgalley in exchange for honest review First of all, I have to agree with others about the cover which is not exactly inviting, even though I see its connection to the story now that I ve finished the book and I m definitely glad it s different from those usual six pack covers which started to get on my nerves recently But, the cover aside, there are two main reasons why I requested this book I ve recently read Mark Of Cain by K Sherwood and loved the story and her writing styl [...]

    8. 4.5 StarsKate Sherwood has a habit of stuffing a lot of really interesting ideas into seemingly hackneyed ideas In Mark of Cain, she had some really interesting reflections on guilt, responsibility, and shame wrapped in the improbably premise of a priest falling for the person responsible for his brother s death In Sacrati, we see two made up medieval societies come into conflict, one guy get captured by the other, and a romance ensue The falls for captor trope is a very tired one, and in my vie [...]

    9. Overall book rating 3.8Audio book Dorian Bane 4Book Cover 1 I don t actually read historical Mostly because I ve read so many of them at a point in time that I gotI don t really know all MF of course But first and foremost, because I don t want to read stories with no hope of a positive outcome for my MC s For some reasons I just didn t think it would work in MM without a whole lot of drama I can do without I m surprisingly enjoying the hell out of myself with this one though I really enjoyed th [...]

    10. Not my typical Kate SherwoodSpoilers I didn t mind this book, but I read it a while ago and forgot to review it, so I think that says something I m a huge Sherwood fan, but this wasn t my favorite of her works It s like a 2.25 stars for me, I think.Interesting plot, but I felt like some of the cliches int his story really failed it Some of the plot points felt typical for the genre, like I d have expected them there But I don t want that, I want something interesting and fresh with a new twist. [...]

    11. CS Pacat has set the bar impossibly high for any author writing a fantasy, enemies to lovers tale set in a homonormative setting where sex pets and bedwarmers are commonplace If you like plotty stories full of political intrigue, ancient fictional settings, and men having sex with men, this will be a good read for you If this isn t your jam but you happened to love Captive Prince, this may or may not work for you.I read and enjoyed Kate Sherwood s contemporary Dark Horse series This is completel [...]

    12. I so so so enjoyed this book The fantasy genre is totally floating my boat lately But wait Is this fantasy I dont know Princes and kings and mindfucks Whatever it is Im loving it, its keeping my interest and making me feel great The book def started out slow I stopped reading it and read another, and then I thought Give it a chance Mare Go back So happy I did Ms Sherwood gave us some seriously good UST Good sarcasm, a good mindfuck If you loved Captive Prince I strongly believe you ll enjoy this [...]

    13. One thing I enjoyed reading here is Theo s character He s a lovely character sexy, honest and unapologetic He is also very charming and charismatic a perfect Sacrati indeed Finvid was annoying as hell all throughout There was no part in this very long story that I felt sympathy towards him The idea about the Sacrati was great but the whole world building did not really work out well plus it was awful long Good thing the ending was quite strong, though I am not convinced about the promise of excl [...]

    14. SO I FINALLY HAVE THISd I have a shit ton of stuff that I have to do before I can even think about reading it God awful cover, but it sounds interesting.

    15. A year or two back I stumbled upon Kate Sherwood on a writers forum and took the opportunity to tell her how much I loved her writing I was truly taken aback that such an amazing author like her was so modest, saying how she needed a lot experience and she was just a beginner writer Truly Even after years from her Dark Horse series no other author has managed to write a better M M M, yet this really wonderful woman thought her work was just beginner level I wonder if Kate Sherwood has any excu [...]

    16. A powerful, enthralling tale that goes beyond romance.The world surrounding Theos and Finnvid was vivid and brilliantly brought to life There was enough intrigue and magic to satisfy a fantasy fan.The romance isn t very typical and it takes awhile for Theos and Finnvid to acknowledge their feelings for each other I enjoyed every moment of this book.

    17. Edited to include audio reviewBook Review This story is amazing Nothing is sugar coated and glossed over Nothing is alluded to, and everything felt so authentic that I could nearly hear, smell, and taste every little experience that happened during this medieval style time period It was harsh, raw, and amazing Both the people, the villages, the marches through the woods, the visit to the cities for some fun debaucherous activities, and the free for all sexfest with the other soldiers It wasn t p [...]

    18. 4.5 stars I think it s entirely possible that if anyone else had written this, I would have rated it 5 stars But Dark Horse spoiled me Every time I buy something from this author, I keep hoping it will be a book that will rival the wonderful Dark Horse in breadth and depth and quality, and this isn t quite there What this is, is a smart and engrossing read about a primitive Spartan like yet matriarchal society, set in conflict with a traditional feudal monarchy This book has solid world building [...]

    19. I loved this one soooo much 5 stars are not enough I m not a huge fan of the author but i couldn t pass this cover I was intrigued and had to read it so so good.unique and special and totally not what I m used to the story wasn t boring for a moment nd the writing was perfect.

    20. AUDIO REVIEWIt s been a while since I picked up a good enemies to lovers romance and it was extra intriguing because it is a fantasy setting and by a new to me author Two societies and two men clash in this warring fantasy world that pulled me in with an engaging plot, well drawn backdrop, and characters that kept me guessing if they would ever get past their issues.The story opens with elite Sacrati warrior group leader, Theos, and his men encountering a party of the enemy that are well within [...]

    21. Spectacularly good.Apparently Sacrati is a long book, but I didn t notice as I read the story in several sittings completely entranced by the characters and their reactions to the cleverly twisting plot It has so many things that add up to a great book for me Two gorgeous leading men who are both honourable AND flawed tick Interesting clash of culture tick Slavery tick Hot male bodies bathing tick Adventure tick Betrayal and conspiracy tick Action tick Great world building tick Powerful female c [...]

    22. All I can say is wow and I loved the whole story line though I found myself wanting to hit some of the characters some of the time I would also love to see how it goes from there but I think if this is a stand alone book that is good too It ended very well.I loved the set up and the characters I loved how the author didn t make them the perfect characters some would There is lots of flaws with them both The descriptions are good without being too much The story line itself kept me interested an [...]

    23. This book was a mixed bag for me.On one hand I was super excited to read it After finishing Captive Prince I was hoping for another goldmine in the Fantasy M M genre I was also terrified that my possible goldmine would inevitably wind up being a landmine instead.It wasn t I had some issues with the book First, it jumps right into sex pretty fast which threw me off because I was anticipating a serious fantasy book, and I started to feel like it was of an erotica Second, because I wasn t really [...]

    24. 4.25 stars.Kate Sherwood is quickly turning into a favorite author of mine Sacrati was a solid, engaging fantasy story that kept me interested from beginning to the end I loved all the politics involved into solving the matters between two warring nations, the complex world building, and the romance was pretty great, too if complicated because of all the differences between the heroes Theos, a brutish and honorable warrior from an elite Sacrati squad, and Finnvid, a wily, manipulative enemy on a [...]

    25. Well, this book felt fresh to me Despite the similarities, I found it different from Captive Prince The plot was engaging, and the world building was nice enough, however nearly toward the end I thought the story was a bit lingering I m not complaining about Theos and Finivid being together, on the contrary I LOVED it, I just felt the plot dynamism got a bit frozen there The enemies to lovers theme had been built excellently, I love it when it takes time for enemies to find love, and I wanted it [...]

    26. I really enjoyed the book, so much in this story regardless of the romance which was done very well The way the history of the two different societies, how different their cultures are The sole way one worked to function therefore the effects of every day life revolved around it relationships, jobs, housing The characters were well developed and the banter was perfect for the setting Everything about this just flowed well.

    27. Advanced review copy of For Real provided by Riptide Publishing via Net Gallery in exchange for an honest review.

    28. This was an amazing story, both complex and intriguing, and it held my attention throughout the twelve and a half hours of audio During a routine scouting expedition, Theos and his band of Sacrati, an elite military unit, come across what could be an advance team of Elkati Being superior fighters, the Sacrati immediately subdue the invaders and Theos takes them prisoner Among them is Finnvid, the brother of the King of Elkat He s on a secret mission to meet with the Torian War Minister, but it s [...]
