A bond that stands the test of time, a plot with many twists.
Ethan Day is a wonderful writer of what I would define as romantic comedy. I've read his whole catalog of books and can highly recommend every one, but this book has some serious dramatic teeth. While it has its chuckles sprinkled here and there, this book is more about love and loss, and sacrifice. the author took his time cementing a strong emotional, and of course sexual bond between the two main men. There is a large fantasy/time travel element that is fun to explore, but at the same time created a little whiplash for me. I think it says good things about the author that I want to go back and read in between the lines, see the missing footage so to speak. I can't think of what this book does not have, it's got romance, a sprinkle of laughs, adventure, suspense, mystery, gore (yes GORE), hot steamy passion, and it does not force feed you all the answers. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because I need to fill in the time lost, what John and Max discovered/did...I'm just a greedy little reader! It's like someone threw The Notebook, Back to the Future, and Indiana Jones in a blender, added a heavy dose of man-love and out Came A Token of Time! Needless to say, it's a must read!
