A Taste of Honey

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A Taste of Honey is the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Theodore Sturgeon, and Locus finalist novella that N. K. Jemisin calls "a love story as painful as it is beautiful and complex". One of BookRiot's "Best Books We Read in November."

Long after the Towers left the world but before the dragons came to Daluça, the emperor brought his delegation of gods and diplomats to Olorum. As the royalty negotiates over trade routes and public services, the divinity seeks arcane assistance among the local gods.

Aqib bgm Sadiqi, fourth-cousin to the royal family and son of the Master of Beasts, has more mortal and pressing concerns. His heart has been captured for the first time by a handsome Daluçan soldier named Lucrio. In defiance of Saintly Canon, gossiping servants, and the furious disapproval of his father and brother, Aqib finds himself swept up in a whirlwind gay romance. But neither Aqib nor Lucrio know whether their love can survive all the hardships the world has to throw at them.

A Taste of Honey is a new novella in the world of Kai Ashante Wilson's The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 05, 2016 – Wilson's eagerly anticipated follow-up to his lauded debut, The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps, beautifully meets expectations while delivering a romantic story that is more intimate than its predecessor. It also reveals more details about the books' setting, which weaves in elements of Earth cultures, fantastical wonders, and strange technology. Aqib bmg Sadiqi, youngest child of the Olorum royal menagerie's Master of Beasts, has the weight of his entire family resting on him. After his father's rank-decreasing marriage, it falls to Aqib to raise his family's fortune by marrying a well-off woman. But when he meets Lucrio, a foreign soldier from a land with different ideas about love, he realizes that the local ideas of acceptable behavior and his devotion to duty both run counter to his true wishes. As Aqib's priorities clash, the narrative takes on a successfully ambitious structure, interleaving scenes of Aqib's future life as the husband of the favored royal princess with the 10 days of his passionate affair with Lucrio. Setting the rewards of duty against loyalty to self, Wilson displays his talent for tugging the reader's heartstrings and underplaying hard emotion, and he delivers a poignant and satisfying conclusion.
