    One thought on “Into the Flames”

    1. Engrossing but disturbing gay literary fiction in which Bossa skillfully pulled together her seemingly disparate plot threads. I'm still not sure what I think about this book.

One main character turns absolutely evil, and I was not convinced of his descent. I liked his character too much in the beginning. Into the Flames is a semi-dark, [...]
