Spring Song by Cassia Hall is the first book in the Seasons Cycle series and a gorgeous treat for fans of gay romance with a tight plot and memorable characters. The Spring Song festival is the highlight of the season, and this time, it is at the House of Silveria. Aunt Viraya's tenor, Clayton, instantly catches the attention of Heinregard, who is seduced by his voice. With every passing moment, Heinregard is drawn to Clayton, but he understands it will be a big risk to go after him. Viraya is very particular about having everything perfect, especially since the Karenys are her guest. Heinregard is determined to find out if meeting Clayton is something designed by fate or sheer coincidence.
While gay romance does not normally get my attention, Spring Song is so well-written that it captured my heart, like a song. The characters leap off the pages with so much life and the setting itself is dazzling. The author captures the smells, the feel of the season, and the natural elements, and weaves threads in relationships in a way that is convincing and authentic. The festive atmosphere is strongly depicted in this vibrant and heartfelt queer romance. Hall takes readers on a ride to a world with a magical feel, dropping strong hints of medieval culture while filling the book with details about songs, stereotypes, artistic motifs, and culture. There are elements of magic sprinkled throughout the story. Spring Song absolutely sizzles with chemistry.
