Miles and the Magic Flute by Heidi Cullinan


 When unemployed Miles Larson retreats to his friend’s Minnesota pawnshop to lick his wounds, he discovers that a few notes on a magical instrument reveal an erotic fairyland where the sorrows weighing on his heart don’t exist at all.Yet fantasy comes with a price, and soon Miles must choose a path. He can surrender his soul to the dreamlord to sustain his pleasure… or he can defeat the faerie and save the mysterious beast-man who promises love. Miles would choose love over pleasure in a heartbeat—if only to seize it he didn’t first have to acknowledge the pain inside.

Is Miles strong enough to learn that sometimes to find happiness, we must face down our sorrows?

This was a very interesting read.  It is not your typical m/m romance novel.  I was very surprised to see that most of the conflict in this novel revolved around self-discovery and overcoming character flaws.  This book was a lot more introspective and deep than I was expecting but it was still a good book.
The main character Miles starts out very self-centered and bitter but as the novel progresses he grows and matures.  The ending is very satisfying and doesn’t leave any loose strands. Overall a good and thought provoking read.
