Just finished Pharoh's Concubine - you guys are right!

It was almost Shakespearean. Romeo and Julio. cheers

I'm glad the ending wasn't quite like Romeo and Julieto. Wink

There aren't many authors that can start a love story in the middle of a gang war.

star Pharaoh's Concubine star

I'm also impressed with how ZAM handled the Mormon angle. I wondered for a bit where things were going after it was revealed that Dylan was raised Mormon and rejected when he came out. She wrote it realistically. Well, as realistically as you can write a love story between one gang boss' kept man and a rival gang's young thug who meet during an abduction and near asassination. smile What I appreciated was that she put the situation out there without holding back on how the church considers homosexuality, and yet she did not delve into Mormon-bashing. Very very well done. not worthy

Dang this is one of the few ZAM books I haven't gotten to tantrum so I guess I'll put it on the short list!!!

Just finished Rhapsody For Piano And Ghost. While I loved the characters, this story didn't quite resonate for me the way most of ZAM's books do. I guess the wealth and classical music just sort of left me ..... kind of flat. The step-brother angle was a little disturbing to me as well. Not my favorite. I loved the ghosts and loved their story and would have liked to know more of their story. I would like to know where Ari and Fitz are in about ten years. The sequel on this one could be amazing.
