    1.5 starsI'd always wondered why m/m reading folks were saying how most m/m romances, especially in slash fanfic, are characterized by effeminate males. Now I understand. This clearly was an amateur work requiring editing. The author did pay some attention to the world-building, which was interesting, but there were not enough descriptions to fully visualize the world and to make it feel real. While the attraction between the two male protagonists was painstakingly described, it wasn't enough to create a palpable sexual tension. Nonetheless, I suppose their relationship could be called sweet. While this story might work for those who are used to slash fic, like effeminate young men portrayed as the helpless Harlequin heroine, and enjoy mpreg stories with males with female human biology, these reasons were precisely why I did not care for the story. 1) While in the first 8-10 chapters the Lashran slave acted like a shy, innocent young male, he became more and more effeminate. I actually prefer not to read about effeminate men in my m/m romances. However, the couple of times I have read books with such characters were not bad. This one, however, irritated me because you could easily have substituted said helpless Harlequin heroine in his stead. In fact, I had a hard time imagining a young Lashran male instead of a female which is not what I want to be doing in my m/m stories. 2) I was spoiled by having my first mpreg book be Tymber Dalton's Acquainted with the Night. Here was truly a creative way of writing a male pregnancy story. While C.R. Hewitt attempted to explain how the male pregnancy worked among the Lashrans, despite the Lashans being a fictional race and therefore anything goes in terms of their anatomy, it was completely unoriginal in the fact that Lashran male pregnancy is exactly like human female pregnancy including signs and symptoms, barring the path the baby takes in entering the world. After all, why couldn't the Lashrans rectum be connected to the...well, actually, I have no clue except that the baby's growth is evident in the Lashran Lifebearer's growing belly. My problem with this type of mpreg is that if authors planned on using the "it's fantasy and fictional" card, then they can damn well be imaginative and create fictional races that have no remote resemblance to humans - and that includes humanoid aliens and anthropomorphic characters. Since this author failed to exercise her imagination further regarding the Lashrans, while reading the explanation of how the Lashrans reproduce, everything I learned in my human Anatomy and Physiology classes clamored in the back of my head, and my mind simply boggled trying to reconcile this absurdity and fighting to suspend my disbelief.3) I've learned in the M/M Romance group that most human men would actually find it painful to be penetrated anally after an orgasm, and that most female (and few male) authors of m/m romance who follow the traditional "give them an orgasm to relax the passage" trick of m/f romance may actually be portraying an unrealistic male anal sex scene. Given that Lashrans are a fictional race, I struggled to accept that in this case, the Lashran bottom could enjoy penetration under these conditions. I managed to tie up my disbelief and tape its jabbering mouth shut but I could still feel it glaring at me in the back of my head. In the end, after pushing through 10 or so chapters, I decided to toss in the towel. I've got better things to read.

    There were a few things that really irked me about this story, the worst being the sharing and het sex. And I really did not like Charlotte. She irritated the hell out of me. I kept wanting to grab her, yank her away from Lythas and Coren, and tell her, "Stop trying to insinuate yourself into their relationship. Leave them alone!" She was like the fantasy version of a 'fag hag'. And then, when she latched herself onto Tsabrak, I was literally grinding my teeth. I think I would have enjoyed this story a hell of a lot more if she hadn't been in it, and I really hope she's not in any of the other stories in the series. Also, my enjoyment of Lythas and Coren's relationship diminished quite a bit after the scene in which Coren goes completely off his rocker and acts like a horrible prick. I was really shocked by his reaction. It also seemed a bit uncharacteristic for him, and quite excessive. I wish the author had worked that a bit differently, and done something else to instigate the separation, because I just could not like Coren very much after that. And I found myself hoping that Lythas would stay with Tsabrak instead of taking Coren back.There were also a couple of things that seemed a bit random because they were never explored or mentioned again. Like, the reaction Lythas had to Coren's punishment was fascinating and really hot, yet it was never mentioned again. And the whole deal with how Lythas felt about his slave collar (he even kept the pieces after it was taken off) but again, nothing about that was ever mentioned again.I also wish there had been a better explanation about the whole m-preg thing. For instance, conception and delivery both occur via the rectum, so, ummm...how exactly does that work? What about gestation? Where/how does that happen? What about going to the bathroom? I really think we needed more information to make it all seem more real and believable. I haven't read very many m-preg stories, but the best one I've come across so far was "Balancing Karma" by I.D. Locke. The m-preg was so well done in that one, so well-thought out and totally believable, whereas this one seemed quite lacking and confusing in comparison. Although, maybe there will be more details about it in the other stories?And then there was the sad ending. Oh boy, do I hate sad endings! But thankfully, I didn't bawl my eyes out (like I normally would with that type of ending) because of how my feelings had changed about Coren. I feel a bit awful saying this, but I actually felt...not much at all with his passing, and very excited at the idea of Tsabrak coming back for Lythas now that Coren is out of the picture. Terrible, I know, but... *shrug*I had a tough time deciding between 2 and 3 stars for the rating, but finally decided to go with 3 since I really loved Lythas, and the prospect of a Lythas/Tsabrak relationship really makes me want to continue with the series. I also thought the Lashrans were a fascinating species and I'm looking forward to learning more about them and their culture. The world building was also quite good, and I have a real soft spot for pirates and the whole 'sailing the high seas' theme. :P Overall, a fairly decent read (despite my gripes) that has the potential to improve quite a bit (I'm hoping!) as the series continues. This is a free read, so if you like fantasy and m-preg, you should definitely give it a try. :)

    3.5Warning - some explicit MF action.I was basically expecting more. It felt too simplified. Some things weren't explained (like, how do they get pregnant, how Lythas managed to remain a a virgin till 23 with his seasonals?). It showed romanticized version of slavery. Our slaver is all good and mushy. And completely out of character he (view spoiler)[ dumps his child's "mother" and leaves to the sea. Seriously? How old is he? 5? To just run away. I didn't get that. I would get that if he were a gay man and found out that his male lover can have children - might get him confused. But a mostly straight guy who is in love with a feminine guy...And after that he just changes his mind and goes to rescue the "mother" in distress? Of course since he is 5 he doesn't want anyone to play with his toys without him watching at least (hide spoiler)]So the biggest problem is that it's simplified - characters, plot, relationship.We don't see no struggles of "Oh, my God, I am a slave!!!" Only some from the owner - does he really want me or just doing his duty to please the master.

    A good story but just not for me. I wanted a happier ending then reader's got but it wasn't a horrible ending just a tad sad. The story held my interest by a strand mainly because it was a mpreg series and I love reading mpregs and I kind of wished it would be similar to Chronicles of Ylandre series by Eressë . I don't think I will be reading the next installment to the series mainly because (view spoiler)[ Coren won't be showing up again and I hate when a character is killed off even if he was reaching the end of his life because of age. (hide spoiler)]

    Fate is the first book in a fanfic series about the fantastical world Wyndrah and its inhabitants. The story includes mpreg and other fantastic happenings.A very good read that can be made into even a better read with a bit of editing with special attention paid to using the correct synonyms. I've read some of what the author had to say re the series and I hope he or she gets the time to do the editing and is able to publish the series. They are that good.Best of luck C. R. H. Hope you get back on track with Wyndrah and that you get the opportunity to make some money from your very hard work.

    I have to say this was totally not what I expected, and I really enjoyed it. I knew what the fate at the end of the story would be but that still did not stop me from crying my eyes out! I sure hope there is a sequel.

    Love this series. It's quite the epic tale, following the lives and adventures of a single family over time. The Lashran are a race entirely composed of males, split into sires and lifebearers. The story begins when a half-human lifebearer named Lythallendar is sold into slavery by his people, only to be purchased by Coren Darshaw, a human pirate. Thus forms the core family unit whose children and children's children we see in future stories. Although the particular character focus changes from story to story, even "secondary" characters (other family members/friends) still get plenty of screen-time and remain integral in the overall story arc. I love extended stories like this that follow the same group of characters -- it makes for quite the fulfilling experience with a real continuing epic saga feel. Perhaps not the most technically excellent writing compared to some things out there, but the enjoyment factor of this series is definitely top notch for me. Interestingly enough, the main reason I picked this story up to begin with was due to my interest in the whole mpreg theme. (And let me say, this series does a great job in that regard -- the mpreg specifics are explained well and come off as quite realistic, in my opinion.) But the reason I kept reading this series was because there is A LOT more to it than just the mpreg content. Fantasy, adventure, pirates, and family...(oh my!) Simply put, these stories are just plain entertaining.

    2nd) I'm re-reading because I'm finally going to read some of the next stories. I think I liked this second read through. I have more sympathy for Coren (though I still wanted to smack him). I can't immagine what a shock it was to find out that he was going to be a father... with a man!!! I also found I really liked Tsab. A noble pirate :) I'm going to hope in the future that he can be the support that Lythas will need.1st) That was fascinating. What a great story. Lots of exciting adventure as well as a great romance. I love Lythas and Coren is a true swashbuckler but, boy, did I want to give him such a smack!!! Oh well, it worked out for them with a promise of a sequel, so I'm happy for now. I just have to get reading on the next one. I'm adding this to My Favorites and becoming a fan of C.R. Hewitt right now. I hope you become a fan, too!!1st read - 24-Sep-20112nd read - 11-Nov-2012

    I really disliked Lythas' relationship with Coren mainly because I eeally disliked Coren for most of the story so it was hard to like him at the end. That really affected how much I could enjoy the book. I think the writing is good enough though to recommend this to anyone that has nothing to read and wants a m/m series to read.

    This story looked very good at the beginning, but I was dissapointed with the sad ending...I can live with not enough explanations throghout the story, little background and unreasonal characters, but the ending killed any chance at reading the sequels of this story for me. I don't like killing off main characters and switching them for someone else in the next book...

    I loved this story. I don't know why the author hasn't published it but I would love to actually pay for this. It was really, really good. I'm an mpreg fan and for this genre, this was amazing. There is so much crap out there published that it's sad so many readers are missing out on something good.

    Just WOW! Totally out of the left field. So now I've managed to read everything from Fate to Always. Amazing. The only bad thing is I'm left hanging since the author hasn't completed the last story. I really hope someday it's finished so we can find out what happens to Antyan and Welvryn and Dagwyn and his family.

    I read this ages ago... twice... with a separation of several years in between... I'll read it again because I can't really remember it any more. But I do remember that I enjoyed it both times.. And ah yes... I never quite forgot that when in a fantasy story people shouldn't use as lubricant the first handy thing they find...

    It's good. Really good. Better than many, many that are published. Other than a very few editing errors it was a well written with well rounded and enjoyable characters. What can I say, I'm hooked and I'll be reading the next installment.

    An interesting story that I enjoyed. I bawled while reading the ending though. Not a happy ending, but the story continues into the second book of hers, so hopefully poor Lys gets a better ending the second time round.

    I really enjoyed it right untill the epilogue. I'm not quite sure I fancy reading the sequel... It's ongoing story rarely enough, and one of the mc is changed in the next book at thst. I don't think I like it.
