Just some thoughts, not a real review:
I did not find the book too descriptive (try reading [b:A Midwinter Prince|9070503|A Midwinter Prince|Harper Fox|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1288071180s/9070503.jpg|13948637]), despite many a reader complaining about it. Every word was carefully placed to create an amazing world that can be seen, heard, touched and inhaled. It was worth more to me than any hot sex or bloody battle scene in the story.
Speaking of sex. Normally, I prefer not to read explicit scenes, whether it's m/m or m/f, but somehow they did not bother me in this book, being relatively short and well placed. Come to think of it, there were more love scenes than just sex, and maybe that made all the difference in the world.
