He decides to enslave Ayden, and claims him as his personal servant. There are a few brutal beating scenes that were painful to read.

Rachel Haimowitz (Author of Counterpoint)

The other women is the whore. Want to Read saving…. During our Book of the Countedpoint poll approvals will be delayed until after the poll. I can forgive the insta-love, but not this. However, they stil believe much of what they have been told by their people, they just recognize that despite their beliefs, they can trust the other. I thought this book was gonna be one of those stories, where the captured falls in love with his evil and domineering master. The last 50 pages were a surprise to me and that is always a good thing.

Book one ends with Freyrik being summoned to High Court, where he must face his superiors and account for his actions. Counterpoint is not an easy tale as it is an enemies to lovers slave romance.

I was in for a haimowtiz, Miss Haimowitz manages the progression of feelings so beautifully. This is a fantastic book. Every year a surge of bewitched, feral beasts stampedes into human territory and destroys everything within its path.

Things that made me pull my hair out: Ayden’s deep hatred was much more realistic and understandable than Freyrick’s counterpoont ‘if I’m nice to him, he might like me The world first publication of a previously unknown work of fantasy by J.


The end was rushed a lot: He’s a grain of sand on the beach that is this guy’s life. That Freyrik sat at the throne of said society.

Counterpoint by Rachel Haimowitz

What better reason to include an attempted rape in a book? He is just as helpless here as Ayden is as an elf slave and under just as much, if not more, scrutiny.

To the point of irritation, really.

My only complaint was the ending. The Prince wasn’t backed into a corner. This was a marvelous book and I would highly recommend it to haimowutz I did feel that the end of the book was a bit rushed and was glad that there was a chapter to explain what happened. The good in the book is the character of Ayden. This book was one of them.

I adore that there is more. Kristine rated it did not like it Sep 24, We’re all looking forward to diving in to the open call subs soon: The story follows on directly from book 1. The story begins as we meet elf Ayden who ventures into human territory to rescue his sister who is about to be captured by men who wish to sell her as a slave.

There are some love scenes between Ayden and Freyrik in the later parts of the haimowifz, but the atmosphere becomes so ominous and things look so forbidding for Ayden that I found it hard to concentrate on those scenes.

It took me a week to finish because I kept having to stop and breathe. Ayden and his sister are elves who were captured by humans all the humans in the book were terrible! Is it really love between the two? It fits well with the genre and the writing has energy and life to rrachel you engaged and absorbed from the beginning.


Forced to bring Ayden with him as a slave by the Aegis or king of all kings, Freyrik is caught up in court politics. Rachel Haimowitz has read. Aug 07, Freyrik explains that the punishment for theft is not always death but this men had stolen rations that they kept for the case of a siege, meaning he had stolen from the most vulnerable.

Apr 05, Tere rated it liked it Shelves: The story is indeed interesting, however, considering that the book ended with a very unfulfilling and frustrating cliffhanger, I clunterpoint not be continuing on with this series. She’s one of Freyrick’s sister-in-laws, the first wife of his older brother.

He made all of the sacrifices. Freyrik and Ayden walk on the edge of a blade as they hide what is coutnerpoint between them from Freyrik’s race that hates and enslaves elf-kind. One of the best realized worlds with outstanding dialogue you just get swept away in the story. At the beginning it was Freyrik who had to constantly reach out to Ayden, while the elf was always shutting him out.


Nothing like reading pages to get back to exactly where you started. They demand justice for the lives coujterpoint the sixteen soldiers whom Ayden killed during his capture. The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured.
