I didn’t just read Skybound, I felt it in every bone of my body. I was afraid for these men, trapped on the losing side of the Second World War – a perspective we rarely ever encounter. Yet they managed to spread warmth through my weary bones by daring to find happiness in each other at a time when even the next day was uncertain. My breath caught in my throat and I had tears in my eyes a few times at the sheer beauty of it all, a beauty tinged with the fear that they wouldn’t make it.
When I first read the blurb, I was excited to read Skybound – an m/m romance set in one of the most interesting and darkest times of human history. I was not disappointed in the slightest. Skybound is a joy to read. Voinov has chosen every word carefully, honed every sentence to perfection. It’s a treasure to be kept and re-read over and over. Skybound is hands down one of the best things I’ve read this year. You won’t regret paying for it or the time you spend reading.
