Amaranth AshIn a world where everyone has their place Amaranth Ash belong togetherAmaranth is a vasai born with both male and female characteristics and a soul that can reach out and touch the souls of others in order to heal them But a vasai’s services are only for the Elai and they demand sexual satisfaction as well as healing from their beautiful servants Frustrated with these constraints Amaranth wants to use his talent to help those who really need itAsh is a c. Tricky book to categorize I'd give it a 35As the title suggests this is the story of Amaranth Ash Amaranth is part of a caste born hermaphrodites They have healing abilities through the sharing of their souls and serve the upper caste Ash is from the lowest caste believe to not even have a soul These two meet by chance and together they set their society on a path to change It was an ambitious story and it took an interesting look at a caste system society and how people can be controlled by beliefs We start out following the developing relationship of Amaranth Ash They meet we see their difference their similarities they meet their obstacles and we encounter the story's bad guy But some time while our two heros are trying to figure it out the story shifts and it becomes a story about the different castes and what happens when what they believe true is disproved During this time a secondary character that up until that point hadn't received much story time and another character become the focus and we watch another relationship develop and characters make major character growth without much room for it to happen Finally when our heros get it together to solve the problems of their society we jump ahead to see how things turned outI think there were a lot of things that the author wanted to cover and the story got it its own way It was almost for two stories The first the story of the romance between Amaranth Ash And the second how their love changed people and the society as a whole Because both stories were interesting the how things changed really needed time to develop Not bad not great

Well this is for sure an author and a novel that was very lucky with its cover Just looking at this cover I’d want to buy the book no matter the genre And well even when I found out it’s a Fantasy not exactly my preferred choice of reading I read it anyway This is probably a book that lays in the middle in every meaning of the word It’s not strictly a gay romance since actually one character is bisexual Ash and the other is androgynous with both sexes man and woman To tag it as “gay” you have to trust Amaranth’s words and the simple fact that he identifies himself as a man There is even a nice note at the beginning of the story where the author explains that for people like Amaranth she would have preferred to use the neutral pronouns of sie and hir but it would have been difficult for the reader In any case the world where Ash and Amaranth are living is strictly divided into castes Ash belongs to the poorer one the Chel so lowlife class that they are believed to have not soul Then there are the Pel basically paid workers for the higher class of Elai Above them all or better cross there the Vasai the androgynous breed of Amaranth; they are both healers than prostitutes since they were taught that they souls healing can be performed only through sexual contact They are paid for what they do but Amaranth is not satisfied of the nice apartment and warm clothes he would like to really touch the souls or at least one soul When he finds a battered Ash on a cold night he immediately understand two things that what he was taught was wrong since not only Ash has a soul but he can also heal him without sex and second that if he doesn’t bring him home Ash will be dead in the morning The difference in caste is not only political Chel Pel and Elai are different also in their body structure with Chel being the smaller of them all On the other side Vasai are the taller of them all and so it’s uite strange to see the tall and lean Amaranth takes care of Ash as he was a little child cuddling him in his lap But aside from this with Amaranth being the only one with also the female sex he is for everything else considered the woman in the story And yes here there is for sure a man in a woman body but also a woman in a man body Amaranth is both of them But even if Amaranth considers himself a man he is kinder and compassionate of most men he has in a way the attitude of a Mother who wants to heal all her children Once Ash is recovered he will play the role of the man but again his attitude towards Amaranth is of respect and worship he considers Amaranth like a precious jewel someone who at first he thinks to have nothing in common But as Ash will understand and say to Amaranth both of them are forced to do things they don’t like they are forced in restriction they don’t feel From the exact opposite of their world they will find a common ground in the middle and while the world around them will be upset by the change they will basically walk away letting other deal with it while they will build an unlikely family together
