      2 I-tried stars. DNF @73%. Review posted August 17, 2015How about a pitch-black no? You don't approve? How about a canary-yellow one? The Bokan was blushing. Again. Maybe it was some kind of glandular issue. A problem regulating his body temperature.He blushed one too many times. In fact, he never stopped blushing and on the rare occasions he did not blush, he shrugged.The kid. I can't hear it anymore. Bodily reactions to the nth degree:The sudden rush of warmth to Luka's chest made it feel like [...]

      4.5 starsReview originally posted at SinfullyAddicted to All Male RomanceLuka has not had a happy life. He carries a secret about why his family sent him away from his home in the southern region to work halfway across the country when he was thirteen. He feels overwhelming shame at his lack of education and his homosexuality. The one thing that brings him comfort is losing himself in his art. Now at nineteen he has been accepted into art school and is just beginning to find some joy when it all [...]

Frankly, I'm a mess.I don't know about you, but I love it when a book has such a profound effect on me.I needed back-up, so I called in reinforcements to join me on this epic journey.

      4.5 StarsI have every intention of writing a poignant review, but in the meantime a thanks to Sheri for the recommendation. Her poignant review is here - /review/showAnd I heartily agree, though I think we found different points of interest and beauty. :)

      4,5 stars“I hope you know, Luka, when people are cruel to you, it doesn’t mean you’re bad, or that there’s anything wrong with you. It only means something’s wrong with them.”Wow! This novel and first part of a new series totally swept me off my feet… literally. I loved Varian’s writing in Dangerously Happy but wasn’t prepared for what was waiting for me when I started reading Escape.Escape is dark, and emotional, and yet full of hope. Luka is such a sweet boy, living in an eth [...]

      4.5 emotional stars “Every life is supposed to be a mix. Some suffering. Some goodness. And now I’ve had both.”Oh wow; such beauty, poetry, artistry and vivid images portrayed under such a grim, horrific and morose setting. Varian Krylov’s writing is exquisite – we knew that already – it’s almost as if we’re reading a poetic account of life, the ugly and the beautiful – the frantic and the serene. The basic core of human elemental emotions and how intrinsically; all we want and [...]

      I was so chuffed to collaborate with Varian and do the cover and other art for Trasmundo: Escape because this was such a great read for me. I haven’t read many books where one of the central MCs is an artist—as an artist myself, that alone made the book a fascinating read. However there is so much more to it. For one thing, the tension in this book was very thick at times, which I loved—the stress of waiting to see whether war’s grasping claws would reach Luka, the worry over whether the [...]

      I've finished, and I'll review it but I need time. Time because my heart has these feelings pouring out of it that I can't possibly put down right now. I might not ever, but I'll try later. Then, I'll let you know.

    10. Trisie on said:

      I'm giving this book 5 stars especially because of its first part. The writing style was just exquisite. I loved the composition and the way the art was intertwined with the story. I also enjoyed quotes in every chapter (J.-P. Sartre and F. Nietzsche - what more could a MM and philosophy lover want:D)Even though it was revolving around a war situation, I didn't find it too deeply focused on it. In the second half of the book you could easily forget about what was happening around them. It went f [...]

      What a wonderful story!! I must say I fell in love with Luka right off. His heartbreaking life until he met Tarik made me cry for him.Tarik was just what Luka needed. A savior of sorts. Their journey to escape a war, predjudice and to find family had me captivated. I didn't want to put the book down.

    12. Lala on said:

      3.75 stars.I'm rounding the rating up, I think? This was a good story, well-written. sucked me in from the first pages and kept me interested till the end. Still, I'm not a fan of war and genocide stuffe refugee camps, the running from homewith all the things going on in the world in real life, this story hit too close to reality for me. Despite the bleak war atmosphere, the relationship the heroes shared was lovely. Maybe Luka was too skittish and Tarik too tender (reminded me of Dario, actuall [...]

    13. Carly on said:

      Oh. My. God. This book is amazing! The character development blew me away. Luka is broken perfection. His past torments him, his present is a living nightmare, and yet he still hopes for a better future. I can't remember the last time I read a character that touched my heart as much as Luka did; I was amazed by his bravery and I cried over his pain. If I could I would wrap him up in my arms, shower him with love, and protect him from all the ugliness in the world.Luka's first encounter with Tari [...]

      Неожиданно! Нет, никаких сюжетных сюрпризов, просто ух ты! Я получила огромное удовольствие в конце)) Таис, я жду твоего заключения и готова обсуждать ;) Наташа, рекомендую! Лала, варнинг: много тушения героев в собственном соку (прям как я люблю)))

    15. Rachel on said:

      Oh, this started off with so, so much potential, but in the end the romantic arc simply didn’t reconcile with its gritty war torn back drop for me. The book engaged me from the start. The writing is well done, but it won’t be for everyone. The prose are highly descriptive – visually painting a scene to leave little to the reader’s imagination. If this were ever made into a movie, every frame would be a work of art. Though I appreciate the spectacular visualization each word evoked, the s [...]

      REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCEThis review is had me in a pickle for a couple of days, Iv’e been bouncing around between ratings and still feel a little undecided. This is a rich, enthralling and beautifully written story about the devastation and ugliness of war and the people trying to survive it yet I felt detached from it most of the way through.We meet Luka who is doing the best he can in difficult circumstances. Sent away from his home and family at just thirteen he hides his real self [...]

      4.5 star Review by The Blogger Girls.This story started out a little slow for me. The first 25% is filled with a lot of words, vivid descriptions and foreign names that almost had me giving up. But, I’m so glad I didn’t, because once things got moving and the dialog picked up, I was riveted.Poor sweet Luka has had it rough. He lives in a world where his people are looked down upon and persecuted for seemingly no reason at all. Made to wear an armband to show who he is and living in fear ever [...]

    18. Em on said:

      It took me a while to get into the book, some parts rambled a bit and I found all the references to art at the beginning a bit pretentious and unnecessary. I nearly gave up at that point. However, once I got past 25% or so things became a lot more real and the story began. I'm pretty sure I'll read the next book.

    19. Yuki on said:

      What a beautiful book.It was my second book of Varian Krylov and for the second one I loved it.And it's a huge pleasure for me to read about places I know, even if they are distorted by author's imagination, by the way.Highly recommended work of art.

    20. K on said:

      I wasn’t sure what to expect with Escape, Varian Krylov’s first book in Trasmundo. I was familiar with her writing style having read her previous books so I was pretty confident I was going to like this one, as well. I was completely caught off guard, however, because for me Escape wasn’t anything like her other novels. Don’t take that the wrong way thinking I didn’t like it because the truth isI loved it.Luka has had a very painful and subdued life and he’s only 19. He has never had [...]

      FGMAMTC Blog Review + Excerpt4.5 starsThis novel is about citizens in a country at civil war. Luka is a sweet, gentle, gay young man who is constantly finding himself at the short end of every situation. He has to try hiding his orientation because it would make him an outcast and subject to brutality. As if that isn't enough, he's without family and has the wrong ethnicity and accent for the part of the country where he happens to live. The only joy he has in life is his art, but he can't even [...]

      I've not given a 5-Star rating to a book in a long time; this one hands-down-don't-even-doubt-it-for-second deserves it. Where's book two? WHERE???

      * warning: story is some what dark. Rape & violence occurs in this story.*Ever read a book that's so hard to review your head hurts every time you try to find the words? Yeah, that's precisely what this particular story has done to me. It's not very dark. It's not depressing but it is disturbing and heartbreaking while at the same time uplifting and beautiful. I don't know how Krylov managed to pull it off but it works.Is it a good story? Yes. Are the characters interesting? Well written? re [...]

    24. Suki Fleet on said:

      Loved the beginning of this. I even had to check the story wasn't about a real place--it felt very real and very true. It's an exciting set up and I loved the pictures.Conflicted because the prose did trip me up quite a bit, and I didn't feel so connected to the characters by the end as their romantic journey began to feel a bit repetitive.

      Other people have given their opinions, much more eloquently than I ever could.Just trust me when I say you need to read this :)

    26. Diverse on said:

      Every writer has a style, it’s their signature. Varian Krylov has always been one to push the boundaries. The trip to the happily ever after is never easy and it’s filled with open faced truths. Humanity isn’t perfect. In Trasmundo we follow Luka and Tarik. 2 men from different sides of a horrifying war both seeking the same thing. Peace and acceptance. Varian is masterful in showing you the raw brutality of mankind and balancing it out with the beautiful kindness of it as well. Luka’s l [...]

    27. Nadia on said:

      While the beginning of the book starts off very promising, I must say I found it very hard to finish it. The beginning with the war and poor Luca being mistreated as well as learning his love of art was great. I enjoyed him meeting Tarik and the beginning of their relationship but after that it became very bland. Tarik asking Luca what's wrong, Luca blushing. It was very repetitive and the final journey was too easily wrapped in a bow. It definitely did not leave me with any inclination to read [...]
