1.5

Title: Gabe’s Song (Elements of Love #3)
Author Name & Publisher: Sui Lynn (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: November 30, 2015 – 200 pgs

Synopsis

When Gabe Windslow and his friends stormed Archbishop O’Fallon’s dungeon, the last thing they expected to find was a malnourished young man who’d been beaten so badly he lay at death’s door. Unable to abandon someone in need, Gabe rescues the poor man and continues to care for him during the days that follow.

Branded a Sin Eater at birth by his deformities, Sammy Newton expected to die after the latest cleansing ritual he took part in. Instead he awakens to a world where nonhumans and magic are good and Sin Eaters aren’t needed.

Confused by a steadily growing sense of betrayal, Sammy struggles to decide whether he should help his rescuers fight the dark forces hunting Gabe and his friends or return to his life of slavery and abuse in order to save his soul from damnation and hell.

I thought this book was such a good addition to this series!

Gabe saves Sammy from where is being kept prisoner for being branded a sin eater. They both have a lot of danger to face before they can be together.

I loved the way this author wrote this story and these characters! I also love the world this author created in this book.

You get action and a little bit of steam too between these two men. You also see characters from the previous books in this series. You can read it as a stand alone but I would recommend reading the first two books in this series first.

I do not want to give away any spoilers so I will leave this review with… I really loved this book and would definitely recommend this series!

I have not read any of the previous books in this series, but didn’t really feel that they were necessary.  Lynn explained who everyone is and I never felt that there was a story behind what I was actually reading.
That being said, this was a hard book for me to read.  The absolute disregard for life captured in this story was heart breaking.  At times, I had to stop reading just to gather my thoughts about the abuse discussed.
Gabe was a character with a great true North – he believed in morality and love – the sanctity of all life.  When he must hunt down those who subject others to torture and death, he finds himself confronted by Sammy – a sin eater.  The description is both horrifying and loving from Gabe’s POV.  He wants to protect Sammy, but also knows that Sammy is going to need a lot of help understanding that what he has endured was for all the wrong reasons – there was no reason for Sammy to withstand such torture.
Then you have Sammy.  Despite knowing about magic, he believes what he has been told by O’Flaggan – that he is a sin eater and that his abuse, ultimately, his death, will absolve O’Flaggan.  When he learns that he is an Element, his world is flipped, bent, twisted and he comes out all the better for it.
After getting through the brutality of the story, the romance and love story comes to the forefront.  I really liked Sammy and Gabe together.  They had a soft chemistry that ultimately became a raging inferno.
I don’t know if I can withstand the other stories if they are similar to this one, but I am glad that I finished this one.

This was another sweet installment of the Elements Of Love, series. Book 3 is about Gabe and how he finds his mate in Sammy, a prisoner found in the last book.
Poor Sammy, he’s been mistreated all his life with only one friend. His mother sacrificed her life for him, but O’Flaggan, the evil guy in the story made him believe that he was evil and deformed, when really he wasn’t. I’m really glad that Gabe and Sammy ended up together. Gabe was protective and sweet, and so was Sammy.
The only thing that made is so weird for me was that Sammy recovered pretty fast. I mean, he was beaten, brainwashed, and god knows what else, but he was able to bounce back from all that, years worth of suffering, in a matter of weeks? I thought it would take years, months at least…but nope. Huh. Still recommend it though. 🙂
