    The continuing, ancient Ireland based saga of the exquisite pair of lovers, Gristle and Wynn, does not disappoint.

Shifting nigh seamlessly from the end of the first book, the sequel delves deeper into the riveting lives of the alluring martial warrior, Gristle, and his enchanting lover/student, Wynn, while providing additional engaging glimpses of life in Ireland during the decline of Rome. In this story, the love between the two men flourishes, but both nurse ghostly hurts which they do not share with the other; each attempting to understand and get a handle on their inner demons, rather than disrupt their still fragile romance. Wynn finds himself plagued with feelings of shame and uncleanliness after the tragic incident that befell him in the first book. His body, though healing, betrays him in small ways and while Gristle helps him with this, it is the deeper pain that he finds difficult to speak of to his lover. Wynn realizes that Gristle is giving him time to speak on what is bothering him, but will he ever be able to reveal the truth if he himself is unsure of what happened during his captivity? Gristle on the other hand is plagued by his inability to confess his love for Wynn, to Wynn. He is ashamed of his attitude upon finding Wynn missing and his subsequent behavior upon his lover’s return. At a loss of how to make amends, he knows telling Wynn that he loves him would be a start. This sorrow is further angst-ridden because of his very real superstition that the goddess Fortuna allows one only so much happiness before she restores balance, by bestowing an equal amount of misery. As his fears fester, Gristle worries that the form of Fortuna’s misery, will be Dubthach, the high ranking oollamh that counsels the king. Dubthach and his son Duane aided Wynn in his initial escape from his captors and Wynn constantly speaks of the man with great admiration… Surely this oollamh is waiting to steal Wynn from his arms; who would not be attracted to his beautiful, young, virile lover? And why would Wynn stay with him, when a man who is both a warrior and a great scholar, beckons? Beautifully detailed, with lots of intriguing new adventures that capture the way of men in turbulent times, at its root, this is a story about the patience of genuine love. Of loving one’s partner enough to allow them to reveal their hurts (real or imagined) in their own time. Of letting them know through gentle hints that they are supported and that someone is ready to listen when they are ready to open up. Supporting characters from the previous book return, as well as a host of charismatic new characters, and justice is meted out multiple times. Among the many adventurous exploits, the boys finally get some idyllic alone time, which put me in the mind of “Brokeback Mountain”. Wonderfully poignant and scorching hot, I daresay the little timeout was quite, um, honeymoon-like. As with the first book, the adventures and sex scenes are extremely well-paced and original, and the lovely romance between the two men is punctuated with amusing anecdotes, light banter, and steamy love-play. I enjoyed every minute of this enchanting sequel and both books of the Iron Warrior series will hold a special place on my Kindle, to be read again and again. Thank you, Erin O’Quinn, I’m very happy to have discovered your books; to borrow a few words from your characters, “I love ye!”

    Extraodinary Characters, Tales, Romances I wish I had the proper words to relate how these two books grabbed me in the gut and hurled me into a Dark Ages period that had simply passed me by. But I can't explain it better than to let you know that this tale of Gristle and Tristus and Wynn (in Warrior Ride Hard) and then Gristle and Wynn (in Warrior Stand Tall) opened my eyes to the settlement of Ireland and surrounding lands during the fifth century when the eventual St. Patrick was haunting the Extraodinary Characters, Tales, Romances I wish I had the proper words to relate how these two books grabbed me in the gut and hurled me into a Dark Ages period that had simply passed me by. But I can't explain it better than to let you know that this tale of Gristle and Tristus and Wynn (in Warrior Ride Hard) and then Gristle and Wynn (in Warrior Stand Tall) opened my eyes to the settlement of Ireland and surrounding lands during the fifth century when the eventual St. Patrick was haunting the territories. With cunning descriptions of the way the cultures that came together got through the period (Roman, Celtic, Norse, Saxons, etc.), Ms. O'Quinn sets forth a history that most of us were not taught, especially in the U.S. And with the extraordinary, deeply sexual, romances between the three MCs laid out before us in such stark, and breathtaking, scenes, she captures a side of the cultures that must have been if not acceptable, but at least not persecuted, during the times. O'Quinn has left us with one of the most unusual and unforgettable characters in any of her books--and she has many--or in anyone else's similar tomes. Gristle, the ethereal, introspective, sinewy, overpowering, wise and lonely abandoned Roman soldier stands apart in godlike fashion and creates a cocoon of heated passion, tormented emotions, and safekeeping for his two younger lovers. He brings us into this sheltered existence by slowly baring his soul to each of them, and to us. And he takes us on sexual journeys that are powerful, somewhat hedonistic and (in a particularly innovative way when it comes to lubrication) absolutely breathtaking. It took me half a summer to get through both books, not because they were boring but because after three or so chapters you simply have to catch your breath. That you can come back having never lost your place--nor your affection--is the hallmark of a clever spider of an author who knows how to weave the right kind of web.

Book two was a continue of the storyline of book one of a Roman soldier at the end of the Roman period in Britian and his companions before the invasions of the Saxons. The capture of Gristle by the two lead druids who are the favorites of the High King and final release and then being reunited with his love. I find it hard to review either of these books and be trueful in my review it not due to the way the writer wrote the books but to my way of thinking as I read and having read as many books as possible on he rise and fall of Roman. The writer did an awsome job on writing the series it shows how much research that was done then in doing this it shows the quality of her works now and in the future.

    Overall, it was an awesome, sweet, and thrilling read! My only issue is that there was zero action! And i mean action in the clean-cut sense of the word coz trust me there was enough sex in there to last me my whole bookshelf. Its just unbelievable that the heroes are suppose to be warriors yet the most action they got was tossing two stringy druids into a well. Im like... --__-- seriously?! So yeah, that was the only disappointing part though. Im so in love with Wynn and Griss. <3 book 3?? :D
