    One thought on “Losing Ground

    1. Amanda on said:

      This was a bit of a miss for me It wasn t bad, but I thought it was forgettable I couldn t connect with the characters at all and I wasn t convinced by their burgeoning romance The ending was very anti climatic I kept expecting something else to happen, something the characters missed or a new threatbut no It was just over and I was really disappointed by the sudden letdown Also, the book was non explicit up until the ending when the author tacked on an epilogue for the sole purpose of giving th [...]

      With a contemporary modern world setting, complete with cars and cellphones, this fantasy novella sets magic amidst everyday life I enjoyed this story, it s a nice easy read However, I think I would have liked a bit world building concerning the magic Carter and Tai might be Earth wizards but they don t seem to have any affinity with their element It would also have been nice to have seen or learned a little about the other types of wizards around them and what they could do I would also have [...]

      3.75 4 Stars from me I honest to goodness enjoyed this story I found the world building satisfying enough, although I would have liked of it The pacing was good, a little slow at times, but still okay I actually didn t find this story boring like some readers did It was actually kind of refreshing actually to see a real slice of life kinda story revolving around earth elementals that didn t involve them fighting monsters or being warrior elves or being super badass or anything like that Just re [...]

      I m beginning to really like Sasha L Miller I ve only read this one and The Errant Prince, but from what I ve seen, she writes solid, sweet romances that stays away from the overdone tropes and stereotypes of the romance genre And this book was definitely no exception This is set in a modern day equivalent world, with elemental wizards witches owning certain territories The summary gives a very accurate description of what you re in store for, so I won t rehash that It was a sweet romance, altho [...]

      Will again refer to my friend s Pete s review over here I did like the lack on insta love insta lust here Carter and Tai were definitely friends first, especially since Tai was a bit reluctant to open up initially, being on the run and everything But like Pete said, some parts felt too winded especially when explaining about the magic spell ward making that my eyes started to glaze over and lost my connection to the book I guess while it was also not insta love but it also failed to fully engage [...]

      An interesting story, but I also felt I d missed something.There was no real world building to this Rather we are just thrown in without the benefit of a previous book setting the scene.I enjoyed the story but felt it lost momentum in the middle The romance side was very light too A slow build is something I enjoy but I like to at least see why they are falling for each other I m afraid I never felt any spark with these two.

    7. Jaylee on said:

      This book was just boring The worldbuilding was sorely lacking did these people not have jobs was magic well known to the population are there other groups with territories , the characters too HOW OLD ARE THEY i don t understand There was no conflict A guy shows up There s some mystery about him But uh I got 42% in and nothing really happened They healed some trees Made pancakes I just got bored Idek how to star this

    8. A Drop of Romeo on said:

      This is only the second book I ve read from Sasha L Miller, but I m really beginning to like her Both books have been unique, including the storylines and the surroundings, and she s stayed away from the cliches of the m m romance genre HOORAY Not much upsets me than a story that I feel like I ve read a thousand times before.Losing Ground is set in a world like ours, yet different it s modern, but it s broken up into territories which are owned by wizards or witches There wasn t too much world [...]

      Carter Bellwood is the son and heir of an Earth Wizard who controls a territory that has been in their family for generations But the territory is dying All of the plants have caught a disease that neither he nor his mother know how to cure When Carter investigates an odd power surge he meets Tai, a mysterious young man with a strong magic and dark secrets This short but sweet fantasy m m romance is an engaging afternoon s read despite some weaknesses in its execution The romance is definitely a [...]

      I really enjoyed this fast easy little fantasy I loved the magic and the little mystery surrounding Tai and I especially loved Carter and Tai s relationship Tai is hiding but from what Carter s family territory is under attack, everything is dying but who is responsible The mystery in this story is a good one but my favorite thing is the relationship between Tai and Carter Tai is sweet and somewhat na ve He has magical power than he knows what to do with until Carter comes along and asks for Ta [...]

    11. Pete W on said:

      It felt longer than the page count suggest, perhaps because the pacing was rather slow Some part felt down right unnecessary long winded for some strange reason.It wasn t bad over all but it was like driving over uneven road Instead of a smooth read it felt bumpy and strangely unsteady I liked that it wasn t insta love or even lust Both MCs had their own issues to deal with, Tai than Carter for sure.However, the bad guy s behavior made me wonder view spoiler What Linden did should have been ill [...]

    12. Pépin Pomme on said:

      It was good The magic was great, so was the plot, and the main character bisexual PoC as very lovable I loved the world building, and the little, cute family scenes.The only thing I was disappointed in was the past of Tai I was expecting something better well, worse for him, but better constructed.But really, it s worth it, with such a plot and such sweet characters

      2.5 stars because it was strangely boring It had an awesome setting the heir of the magic territory is not powerful enough, while most of his mother s power was used to contain a disease that was spreading among every plant and then a mysterious but very strong mage comes into town and effortlessly deals with the issues The outsider is very strong in magic, but looks and acts as a victim and stirs the heirs protective instincts This all sounds very thrilling, but it was actually sooo slow at tim [...]

      When I got the message that Losing Ground was ready for download, my first thought was, I don t remember ordering this But I m glad I did, because it turns out to be a sweet and well written urban fantasy story.Carter observes near the end that the resolution of their problem seemed almost anticlimactic And maybe it was in a classical sense, but I liked that I liked that the story s climax didn t rely on a huge magical fight view spoiler Carter told Linden to go, and when he wouldn t, Carter cal [...]

    16. Alysa H. on said:

      A pleasant little romance, the kind in which author Miller and publisher Less Than Three Press seem to specialize In this iteration, Earth wizards Carter and Tai spend the entire short novel building up trust and friendship, and if I hadn t known going in that there would be romance, I would have thought it was completely platonic It s actually not until the Epilogue that these boys get Together together, and anything R rated ensues, which might be jarring for some readers This is set in a world [...]

      Carter and his mother Rebekah are Earth Wizards trying to protect the territory they live in A disease is spreading throughout the area, killing all the plants and trees The Wizards feel a power surge and Carter goes to investigate He discovers the mysterious Tai, another Earth Wizard, who is even powerful than mother and son.This story was a bit slow moving for me The writing was great, but the story dragged in areas I did enjoy the growing friendship between Carter and Tai With that said, the [...]

    18. Chiara on said:

      Ho fatto davvero fatica, con questo libro L idea alla base meravigliosa, ha tutto quello che in un romanzo mi interessa magia, un contesto vagamente dispotico crepuscolare, la promessa di una romance tutt altro che banale ma nonostante questo non sono riuscita a farmi prendere Ho trovato il ritmo della narrazione lento, la scrittura pesante e difficile da digerire le pagine non scorrevano mai, pi leggevo e meno mi sembrava di progredire Non so per quale motivo, non so se sia stata una mia carenz [...]

    19. Shakera on said:

      This is the second book that I have read by Sasha L Miller and I truly enjoy her writing This book was a bit slow paced, but I didn t mind that I truly enjoyed the development of friendship between Carter and Tai as they try to save and cure the disease that is taking over Bellwood s territory The epilogue was a bit graphic considering the rest of the book was PG 13 I d give this a 3.5 rating overall I do look forward to reading by Ms Miller.

    20. H.V. Corbin on said:

      Modern day urban fantasy is usually not my thing, but as a fan of Miller, I gave this book a shot I m really glad I did I like the way it s shown that Tai slowly goes from a frightened stranger to an integral part of the town He really starts depending on Carter, as much as Carter is similarly depending on Tai to save his beloved seven generation strong Bellwood territory Carter is a weaker mage but still defends Tai when trouble arises A really safe and secure feeling type romance.

    21. Acquafortis on said:

      I felt this book as if it lacked profundity I wish that the characters were developed Yes there was magic but how was the magic articulated in that particular world The alchemy between the two protagonists was a bit dull No spark.
