Best Gay Sci-Fi / Futuristic: Infected, Lesser Evils by Andrea Speed

I haven’t read all the books in the series, but one thing I noticed, this series is more mainstream than genre fiction, actually I think the whole series is one of the best example of urban fantasy out there right now. The writing style is unique, the main and supporting characters are original, in their being heroic without being heroes, and the storyline is tragic and engaging, always leaving the reader with the feeling of wanting more, and more will be delivered.

As the same Dylan says, they will be always in three, Roan, him and the ghost of Paris, who basically has never left Roan, living in his skin, lingering on his needs. Roan loves Dylan, I can feel it, but I also feel like Roan doesn’t believe there is a future for Dylan and me, and in a way, would prefer for Dylan to be as much as possible detached from him. I’m not sure if Roan hates the shifter in him, or if, deep down, he feels like he is that shifter, and that denying him he is denying his own self. Dylan represent normalcy, and if he wants to be with Dylan he has to refuse his lion; in a way, Roan is rejecting the lion while, in the end, I had this lingering sensation that Dylan wouldn’t be against the idea to accept it, cause, better than Roan, Dylan understand the lion is not the bad side of Roan, it’s just another side of him.

Yes, that is, after 6 books, my conclusion is that Roan hasn’t to fight the lion, but instead he has to find a way to have it coming out and being a part of him, and both of them need to “know” Dylan to love him completely (well, this is the romance reader speaking).
