Title: Fall
Author: Alex Draven
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Other Information/warnings: violence

Summary:
Patrocles the centaur thought he had left the herd. But a young colt seems to be trying to horn in on his territory.

My review:

This is one of the most unusual fantasy stories I’ve ever read, and the fact it’s slash is almost incidental (which is my favourite way of dealing with the slash genre). Pet has been evicted from his herd, and is in pain and in a spiral of self-destruction. Matthias is looking for a home, a mentor…and more. Two powerful creatures, thrown together, in an electric, violent situation where they have to deal with their past and their inheritance, or die.

Draven has created an angry, mythic, vulnerable man in Pet, and the imagery of two stallions circling, sorting out dominance, place in the hierarchy, is compelling, beautifully handled, and poetic in description and execution. You won’t regret reading this.
