Nachdem mir der vorherige Band Skin Deep ausgesprochen gut gefallen hat, war ich sehr gespannt auf diesen hier. Vor allem, da ich Uriskel im ersten Band schon so interessant fand.
Die Geschichte beginnt zwei Monate nach Ende des ersten Buches. Uriskel war ins Reich der Fae zurückgekehrt und obwohl er seine Aufgabe, den Verräter Eoghann lebend zurückzubringen, erfüllt hatte, wurde er ins Gefängnis gesteckt. Braelan, der Prinz von Arcadia, holt ihn aus dem schmutzigen Erdloch, weil er eine neue Aufgabe für ihn hat. Braelan will sich in der Welt der Menschen vergnügen und dazu braucht er Uriskel als Bodyguard. Für die Erfüllung seiner körperlichen Bedürfnisse und als Begleitung engagiert er den Prostituierten Trystan. Trystan, gerade pleite, greift sofort zu, als ihm eine Million Dollar angeboten werden. Dafür muss er einen Monat lang Braelan zur Verfügung stehen. Trystan weiß jedoch nicht, auf was er sich da einlässt - er hat keine Ahnung, dass Wesen wie die Fae existieren, aber plötzlich findet er sich in deren Reich wieder. Dort erfährt er, dass er Prinz Braelan dienen soll und er lernt Uriskel kennen. Die Bewohner von Arcadia scheinen Uriskel abstoßend zu finden, aber Trystan ist fasziniert von ihm - sogar, als er ihn in seiner wahren Gestalt sieht.
Der Prinz kehrt mit seinen beiden Begleitern nach New York zurück.

HASH(0x9d609f18) von 5 Sternen AWESOME!!! 26. Oktober 2010
Von Dana~ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is the continuation/follow-up to Skin Deep, so if you haven't read that book, you should. In this story, I think a few years have passed since Cobalt & Will got together. Now we get to read Uri's story, 'cause in the first book, you wondered if he was truly a bad guy or not! Be warned however, that there is a A LOT of angst involved; Uri goes through some serious s***, and I gotta admit, he handles it like a beast!!!! There's no way in the world I'd be able to go through all he went through and keep my mental facilities in check!!! Trystan is a champ too, and he holds his own in a big way. Now, the Product Description says: "Trystan Raines loves cock [...] and damned good at his job." That's not the truth and that may lead you to believe that this book is wrapped around Trys being a prostitute. Yes, that's how he get's into this mess with Braelan & Uri, but that's not the focus of this story. This is about a guy at the end of his rope, down & out, who gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to change his luck. Who finds love in spite of his profession. Does it come easy for Trys? Hell, no!!! But this story is about trusting and taking chances. It's about how people can change even though.

I'm becoming a real fan of this author; her world of "fae's, magic and glamour" is very interesting and it's something I hadn't really been interested in until reading both books! Anyway, I'm glad I did - I love it!!!

HASH(0x9d60a7a4) von 5 Sternen Little harder to read than Skin Deep, but I liked it just as much 16. Januar 2013
Von Charly T. Anchor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 7/10

PROS:
- The Fae realm that is only hinted at in the first book actually makes an appearance (albeit brief) here, and it's fascinating. Nothing too original, but seeing characters I was already familiar with as they navigated the Fae world had my undivided attention.
- I liked the magical angle in the story. The Fae characters use their magic sparingly and are limited in the types that they can perform. Sometimes I had almost forgotten that they were capable of magic by the time they used it again.
- I thought the sex scenes were well done: tender and hot, made sweeter by the fact that Uriskel has such a bristly personality but is so gentle with Trystan.
- Rarely do I think that 180-degree turns in personality are depicted well. In the case of Braelan, the secondary character who (slight SPOILER here) starts out as a villain and turns into an ally, I thought the about-face was very well-written.

CONS:
- The story requires a large suspension of disbelief right from the start. I realize that this is a fantasy, but it is *rooted* in reality. Trystan is a human character, after all, who lives in New York City. I simply couldn't make myself believe that a streetwise hustler would allow himself to be played and get himself into the mess that Trystan does. He's gullible and foolish, and those don't seem like the sort of traits a street worker would have.
- Both of the main characters experience a lot of heartache through the course of the story. Uriskel in particular is subjected to numerous harsh punishments, most of which are described in a fair bit of detail. The angst level is certainly higher in this volume than in Skin Deep.

Overall comments: I had a hard time getting through the story, not because it's poorly written or I wasn't attached to the characters, but because they go through a lot of unpleasantness. The moments of happiness are fleeting at best (until the ending), but that didn't stop me from enjoying the story overall. I did get a little frustrated at times at the lack of communication, though: this is one of those stories in which one man will look over at the other, see him in a potentially compromising position, and jump to the absolute worst conclusion...and then never talk to him about it.

HASH(0x9d60a768) von 5 Sternen Ebook Addict Reviews 7. April 2011
Von Theresa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I fell in love with S.W. Vaughn a few weeks ago when I read Skin Deep, which was an absolutely awesome book on its own but when followed up with Heartsong, is even better.

I had hoped when I hit the end of Skin Deep that Vaughn would be back with Uriskel's story and I was not let down. I do so enjoy stories of the Fae. Laurell K. Hamilton tweaked my interest first and after that, I was devouring everything I could find. S.W. Vaughn is definitely going on my favorites list for Fae stories. She does a great job of mixing the myth with reality and keeping you interested from page one. I did not want to put this book down!

Vaughn has a lot of emotion packed into Heartsong. In Skin Deep when we meet Uriskel, he is a bit on the shady side and easy to dislike, but he soon redeems himself and garners your sympathy--although he is quick to tell you that he does not want it. Heartsong begins with Uriskel paying the price for some transgression, which is nothing new for him. Prince Braelan seems to enjoy nothing more than making Uriskel's life a living hell. Enough so that I wanted nothing more than to see one of the prince's many enemies get the upper hand. But Uriskel is nothing if not good at his job, even if Braelan doesn't deserve it. I will say that that Heartsong had a lot of torture in it--more than I like--but it isn't out of place for the story and just as the author hit the point where I might have been ready to call it quits, it quickly turned in another direction, which I was extremely grateful for.

The fireworks between Uriskel and Tristan are immediate; they definitely rub each other the wrong way or maybe the right way depending on your thinking. Their relationship has a different start, to say the least, but not an unbelievable one. After all, this is fantasy.

Although I think that Heartsong could easily stand alone, I'm sure that you would get the most enjoyment out of reading Skin Deep first.

If you have read Skin Deep than Heartsong is a must read and if you haven't read either... well than both book need to be on your buy list.

HASH(0x9d60aa5c) von 5 Sternen I liked the secondary character better 21. September 2011
Von Emanuela PlasticDuck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I think the story was overall better than the story of the first book, which in my opinion had a weak resolution, but in my opinion its characters are less balanced than Cobalt and Will from Skin Deep.

Trystan is a prostitute and he is human, Uriskel is Fae, but he is considered a low being by the Seelie Court and especially by his bother Braelan (who doesn't know he and Uriskel are brothers). Uriskel is bound to keep a lot of secrets, because he risks of being tortured or imprisoned and probably killed if he spills them. He is psychologically paralyzed, he can't see a way out, he has a very passive attitude. Trystan, on the contrary, always tries to make his situation better, to help Uriskel recover from torture and abuse, even risking his own safety.

Uriskel's side of the story revolves around his self-pity and is slower and a bit boring. Trystan's side of the story is livelier, because Trystan is also a man who doesn't mind speaking his mind and he's always blunt.

Braelan is a secondary character, but he grows in the story and he changes from a spoiled brat to a man who doesn't want to be told lies anymore, who wants to be just, he doesn't want to be a mindless monster. Seeing Trystan and Uriskel's love, he learns that there's something else out there and it's more fulfilling than easy pleasures. His story was for me more interesting than the main story and I'm looking forward to reading his book.

HASH(0x9d60af60) von 5 Sternen Excellent continuation featuring Uriskel from "Skin Deep" 23. Juni 2012
Von SheReadsALot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

S.W. Vaughn, where have you been all my life. I loved this story and this a great series. This time Uriskel and Trystan from "Skin Deep" are paired together. I did not think it would work but it really did. I believed their love and Uri is so deserving of love. He truly is noble. I have to read book # 3 to find out if justice will finally be served to Arcadia for the torment Uriskel goes through. If you're a fan of m/m romance with a dark paranormal twist, don't hesitate on this book. It will suck you in.

There's a lot of violence and pain, more so than "Skin Deep". Poor Uriskel suffers tremendously and the villian(s) are Seelies, Braelan and Morven. These two are horrible but then the author actually makes one of them less repulsive than in the beginning of the tale. I won't say which one but you will want to read to find out what's what.
