Title: The Mingled Destinies of Crocodiles and Men
Minerva True is a River Dweller and mystic who lives deep in the forested hills of a river valley on the fringes of the world. She is the only person who sees the ancient danger that resides on a nearby chapel grounds. Most pay little heed to her warnings, and in the end only a small band of friends stand beside her. A tale of love and duty ensues, challenging the destinies of Minerva, the young hero Leith, his lover Aubrey, and the mute boy, Deverell. Leith’s half-crazed mother Calpurnia has her own aspirations, however, that prove detrimental not only to Minerva, but to everyone she comes in contact with.

What first attracted me to this book was the title: The Mingled Destinies of Crocodiles and Men. It is quite a mouthful but I have to say, this is probably one of the best titles I have come across in a while. The rest of the book does not disappoint either. Author Eric Arvin has created a wonderful book of, in its simplest form, good versus evil, but in fact is so much more. There is a plethora of characters each one interesting and fascinating. This is definitely not your typical M/M romance. The only negative thing I have to say is there was quite a bit going on thorough the book and at times, if I lost concentration I would lose track of who was who and what was going on. That aside this fanciful tale will keep you engrossed from its curious beginning to its climatic ending.
I highly recommend reading The Mingled Destinies of Crocodiles and Men. However, may I offer a word of advice. Once you start reading it, you will not be able to put it down so start reading this book early in the day or else you will be up all night. Sit back, relax and enjoy the adventure!
