Witches are usually women, and so when Seiran, a boy, is born with the level of power of the strongest witches, that is not acceptable; his own mother treats Seiran like an oddity, and the now college kid has long ago learned to hide his true power. He is also trying to be independent, going to college by day and working as a waiter by night; that the grill&bar where he works is owned by his boyfriend is only a bonus. Actually Seiran doesn’t want to consider Gabe his boyfriend, but more a friend with benefits sort of partner. While that doesn’t happen in the span of this novel, it’s implied that both of them had other affairs since they met, even if I have my doubts on Gabe, he strikes me like the monogamous type.
I really liked how the author managed to make Seiran cute and pretty but not too feminine; he is probably a brat, for sure he is a little crazy, but he is not a woman at all. He is cute, though, especially when he changes into a lynx (who behaves more like a cat, actually), and “loses” his human self. Gabe is able to manage him even in that form, like he is apparently the only one able to deal with a human Seiran as well.
Gabe is for sure the mainstay, the one giving stability to Seiran; Seiran is like a loose cannon, quite strange if you consider he is an earth witch, but I think Gabe is the one linking him to earth.
