|Description:||Rainbow Readers is a lgbtqia+ and queer book group; we read genre fiction from queer romance to scifi and fantasy with some horror on occasion. All are welcome. Our book for February is Sword Dance by AJ Demas, and is available for purchase at the bookstore.
"Five years ago, Damiskoss brilliant military career was cut short, leaving him with a permanent disability and scars that are not all physical. Adrift and still grieving, he tries to find meaning in an unsatisfying job.
Work takes him to the remote seaside villa of an old friend, where, among an odd assortment of guests, he meets the eunuch sword-dancer Varazda. Enigmatic and beautiful but distinctly prickly, Varazda is the antithesis of the straightforward and serious Damiskos. Yet as they keep getting in each others way at the villa, their mutual dislike is complicated by a spark of undeniable attraction.
Then the villas guests begin to reveal their true characters and motivesno one here is what they seemand Damiskos finds himself at the centre of a bizarre web of espionage, theft, and assassination. Varazda may need Damiskoss help, but not as much as Damiskos, finally awakening to a new sense of life and purpose, needs Varazda.
Sword Dance is the first book in the Sword Dance trilogy, an m/m romance set in an imaginary ancient world, with murderous philosophy students, sex acts named after fruit, and love blossoming in the midst of mayhem"
