    "I like fantasy novels in the older styles, full of adventures and romance and chivalry, before they all had to turn gritty and bloody. This one fits the bill, but is also way ahead of its time for having a gay character in the book, something which still to this day is fairly rare in most genres. It's wonderfully written and engaging and a total page-turner, having representations of people we don't often see in books is just a great bonus."

    "I was looking for a good romantic fantasy novel with gay characters. I found out about The Song of Achilles. This is a great book by Madeline Miller. It tells the story of Achilles and his life story from Homer's The Illiad. It's really interesting and has occupied me for hours. I love reading about his wins and losses from the Trojan War. Definitely check it out if you love romantic fantasy novels with gay characters."

    "I don't find this solution to be very good. It does not present anything about the main point of having a gay character nor does it show anything about being a romantic fantasy."

    "I was looking for something new to read that was different and a bit modern. usually I read the classics, but I had heard about The Line of Beauty and how it dealt with aids, homosexuality and a vast range of up to date topics. Anyway, the book delivered it's promises, but it wasn't very well written. Although maybe going from Dickens to anything would be a let down."

    #10The Steel Remains (A Land Fit for Heroes Series)

    The Steel Remains (A Land Fit for Heroes Series)
    Ringil, once a war hero and expert swordman, has been asked by his own mother to go rescue one of his cousins, who has been kidnapped and sold as a slave. Two friends of him join him in this adventure, which can change the fate of the whole country. 




    Ringil, the hero of the bloody slaughter at Gallows Gap is a legend to all who don't know him and a twisted degenerate to those that do. A veteran of the wars against the lizards he makes a living from telling credulous travellers of his exploits. Until one day he is pulled away from his life and into the depths of the Empire's slave trade. Where he will discover a secret infinitely more frightening than the trade in lives.Archeth - pragmatist, cynic and engineer, the last of her race - is called from her work at the whim of the most powerful man in the Empire and sent to its farthest reaches to investigate a demonic incursion against the Empire's borders.Egar Dragonbane, steppe-nomad, one-time fighter for the Empire finds himself entangled in a small-town battle between common sense and religious fervour. But out in the wider world there is something on the move far more alien than any of his tribe's petty gods. Anti-social, anti-heroic, and decidedly irritated, all three of them are about to be sent unwillingly forth into a vicious, vigorous and thoroughly unsuspecting fantasy world. Called upon by an Empire that owes them everything and gave them nothing.Richard Morgan brings his trademark visceral writing style, turbo-driven plotting and thought provoking characterisation to the fantasy genre and produces a landmark work with his first foray.

Plus they'er vampires so they suck a lot, something gays like I guess. Oh man this gay book is so good, recommended if your preferences are based on some niche sexual orientation."

    "Blood Canticle is a pretty cool dive into vampire fantasy that features a gay character. I think that it is unique in some of it's character choice and it kept my interest for a majority of the book. I can't say I was on the edge of my seat, but for a fantasy novel it did feel pretty believable."

    "This is a good solution I believe. The word "fantasy" is very loose and open for interpretation and if they're looking for spacey/aliens type of fantasy, then this covers it very well. Many people in the comments of the Amazon reviews believe the sequel is great and worth reading and it has a good overall rating. Not exactly sure how to find what else meets the description of this genre. "

    "Kind of okay as a gay romance tale, but the book falls flat in its world building and supernatural realities. The vampires are rather boring and come across as slightly re-skinned humans. In short, it's got the trappings of fantasy, but none of the mystery, or evocative depth a good fantasy needs. "
