One thing I want to say before I launch into a summary review the main characters are not gay they re bisexual Both of them express interest in and have relationships with women It s a silly thing to get nitpicky about, but I do On with business.Alec is a young man, just turned sixteen and recently orphaned, who earns a living trapping and trading furs He s lived his entire life in the wilderness, learning how to survive and navigate seemingly featureless plains and endless forests His so One thing I want to say before I launch into a summary review the main characters are not gay they re bisexual Both of them express interest in and have relationships with women It s a silly thing to get nitpicky about, but I do On with business.Alec is a young man, just turned sixteen and recently orphaned, who earns a living trapping and trading furs He s lived his entire life in the wilderness, learning how to survive and navigate seemingly featureless plains and endless forests His solitary existence is disrupted when he is arrested by the local lord accused of being a spy Alec is thrown into the dungeon, where he is tortu
