Publisher's Summary

After centuries of traveling the continent of Kita, and fighting the extra-dimensional monsters known as Riftspawn, mage Lyuc is tired and ready to back away from the concerns of humanity. 

But the world isn't done with him yet. 

While traveling with a merchant caravan, Lyuc encounters Yan, an Unnamed, the lowest caste in society. Though Yan has nothing but his determination and spirit, he reminds Lyuc what passion and desire feel like. While wild magic, a snarky, shape-shifting, gender-fluid companion, and the plots of men and monsters seem determined to keep Lyuc from laying down his burden, only Yan's inimitable spirit tempts him to hang on for another lifetime or so.

All Yan wants is to earn the sponsorship of a guild so he can rise above his station, claim a place in society, and build the family he never had. 

After hundreds of years of self-imposed penance, all Lyuc wants is Yan. 

If they can survive prejudice, bandits, mercenaries, monsters, and nature itself, they might both get their wish...and maybe even live happily ever after.

Seems iffy

While the fantasy of the story is great so far, I really cannot get behind the romance between the two pov characters. Yan is regularly described as almost a child/a child, switching between being called a young man and a boy, while Lyuc is an old man/wizard. You can probably guess my issue from that. Lyuc lusting after Yan makes me really dislike Lyuc’s character. It’s not helped by the voice acting that gives Yan a really whiny and high voice, childlike. Yan is probably just meant to be a twink, but it comes of as really peadophillic.

While I would love to read more non-hetro non-binary fantasy books, this is not what I want to see becoming normal in the genre.
