A story about an 18 years old boy and his appointed guardian, 5 years older, it could have been way more sexy, but the author decided/managed to make it almost innocent; don’t get me wrong, the two boys will enjoy their sexual relationship but the only think the reader will read is “And then I had no idea how we'd slept together so many nights and kept this from happening.” What “this” is, an adult reader will know, a Young Adult reader can imagine.

The story is quite simple and at the same time extraordinary: Gareth always thought he was different, but he was linking that feeling with him being gay and with his situation as foster kid. The only real strange thing happening in his life is the presence of his protector, a slightly older boy who is a constant since he was 5 years old. This boy appears only at night, to embrace Gareth and make him feel safe even if the world around him is crushing and unwelcoming.

Aranth, and the reason of his presence, will be unveiled to Gareth when his “quest” on this world will reach the end, and something bigger is awaiting him. Gareth and Aranth’s story, while dealing with sci-fi elements, and aliens and other planets, is somewhat ordinary and simple, nothing like a big sci/fi/adventure/thriller plot, so much that they even find the time to rescue a puppy.

I think this was a choice of the author, to write a story that was easy enough for a Young Adult reader to enjoy without too much hassle and bustle.
